Global Modified Starch Market will be US$ 16.2 Billion by 2027. Starch is an essential food product and a versatile biomaterial used worldwide for different purposes in many industrial sectors, including health, textile, foods, chemical, and engineering. Starch versatility in industrial applications is primarily defined by its physicochemical properties and functionality. At the same time, advancements in biotechnology and chemical technology have led to the wide-range modification of starch.
Furthermore, modified starches are important natural hydrocolloids to utilize in various end-user industries. It is obtained by making enzymatic, chemical, and physical changes to the original starch. Modified starch is formed by morphological or physicochemical changes in the structure of native starch via its treatment with acids, alkalis, heat, or enzymes: this enhanced heat, water-holding capacity, resistance, binding characteristics, and thickening properties. Corn, potato, Mazi, wheat, and cassava are some of the primary raw materials of modified starches. According to Renub Research, Worldwide Modified Starch Market Size was US$ 12.7 Billion in 2021.
