Key Market Trends

Increased Utilization in Food and Beverage

Starch derivates have several applications in the food and beverage sector. Both modified and unmodified starches can act as gelling agents in confectionery applications. Several gelling starches (derived from maize and potato) are being used to partly replace/complement gelatin in gummy-type candies, in which a softer, less chewy/elastic consistency is wanted. Starches and starch-based offerings are also being used to texturize chewy-type candy. Resistant or indigestible starch is emerging as a functional ingredient in processed food products, due to its functionality that includes acting as a soluble fiber, which can be added to a number of foods to improve the texture and decrease the rate at which sugar enters the blood from digestion.
