Enhances mouthfeel for creamy consistency

Modified Starch

Our modified starches are produced from high quality native tapioca starch and can be used in industries besides food as well. Modified starch is prepared by physically, enzymatically, or chemically treating native starch to change its properties to meet sufficiently requirements in various application.

Understanding Modified Tapioca Starch

Modified tapioca starch refers to tapioca starch that has been altered from its native form to improve its performance in specific applications. These modifications can result in starch with enhanced thickening, stabilizing, emulsifying, and binding properties. The modifications do not change the starch's fundamental structure but rather optimize its characteristics to meet the demands of different industries.

How is BS' Modified Tapioca Starch Made?

The production of modified tapioca starch involves various modification techniques:

Pregelatinization

Starch is precooked and dried, allowing it to swell and gel upon cold water addition, ideal for instant products.

Heat-Moisture

A new novel of our process alters the starch's crystalline structure, enhancing its functional properties like gel firmness, viscosity, and thermal stability, making it suitable for various food applications without using chemicals.

Modified Starch Functions

Thickening Agent

Stabilizer

Texture Enhancement

Binding Agent

Fat Replacement

Encapsulation

Clarity & Gloss Improvement

Moisture Retention

Gelling Action

Adhesion

Research & Development on Modified Starch

Research and Development (R&D) on modified tapioca starch is a dynamic field that focuses on enhancing the functional properties of this natural ingredient to meet specific industry needs. The primary goals of R&D in this area include:

Improvement of Functional Properties

Scientists work to enhance the thickening, gelling, and stabilizing abilities of tapioca starch. This involves modifying the starch to withstand various processing conditions like high temperatures, shear, and acidic environments, making it suitable for a wide range of applications, from foods and beverages to pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.

Tailoring Starch for Specific Applications

Different industries require starches with specialized characteristics. For instance, in the food industry, a modified tapioca starch might be developed to create a creamy texture in frozen products or to prevent syneresis in yogurts and sauces. In non-food applications, such as in paper manufacturing or textile sizing, modifications might focus on improving film-forming properties or adhesiveness.

Enhancing Nutritional Profile

Another key area of R&D is modifying tapioca starch to lower its calorie content or to alter its digestibility, thereby impacting the glycemic index of products containing this starch. This is particularly relevant in developing healthier food products.

Sustainability and Source Optimization

Research is also directed towards making the production of modified tapioca starch more sustainable. This includes optimizing the use of water and energy during production, reducing waste, and exploring environmentally friendly chemicals used in the modification process.

Advancements in Processing Technologies

Innovative processing techniques such as enzymatic treatment, physical modification (heat-moisture treatment), or the use of new chemical agents are continually being explored to expand the functionality and application range of tapioca starch.
