Drivers: Functional properties of modified starch and their ease of incorporation in a wide range of food applications

Modified starch enables the modification of basic properties of native starch and obtaining certain functional properties suitable for a wide range of industrial applications. It has a variety of functions; it is used as a thickener, texture agent, fat replacer, and emulsifier. Modified starches, because of their characteristic of absorbing water and bulking up, render the essential mouthfeel to the food products they are used in. This makes them an excellent substitute for fat. Starch is also used as a thickener or as a gelling agent in food products, as the texture is one of the important factors for the consumers to accept the food products. Oxidized starches are used as thickeners and subsidiary gelatin agents in sauces, jellies, puddings, and ice creams. The advancement in technology used for processing starch has developed a variety of ingredients that can be customized to meet most formulating challenges.

Opportunities: Untapped application of modified starch

There are various application areas that are untapped and can be big opportunities for modified starch manufacturers. Expanding the commodity sources for extracting starch and combining modification processes add a wider range of probable applications to the list.

Modified starch can act as an excellent fermentation base for the bulk production of a wide variety of biotechnology products, such as organic acids, antibiotics, vitamins, and hormones. Starch-derived glucose can be fermented to produce lactic acid, which may be polymerized for biodegradable films or bioplastics. Similarly, potato starch wastes may also be used as feedstock in fermentation reactions. Several polymers can be prepared using a variety of starch-based feedstock.

By application, the food & beverages segment is projected to account for the largest share in the modified starch market during the forecast period

By application, the market is segmented into food & beverages, industrial, and feed. The food & beverage segment is further classified into bakery & confectionery products, processed food, beverages, and others, which includes snacks and soups. Modified starches have been developed for a significant period of time, and their applications in the food & beverage industry are increasingly gaining importance. Modified starches are considered as food additives that are prepared by treating starch or their granules with chemicals or enzymes, causing the starch to be partially degraded. They are used across various food applications owing to their functional properties.
