A very fine, white or slightly yellowish powder or irregular white masses which are readily reducible to powder, creaks when pressed between the fingers, odorless and tasteless.

Maize Starch exhibits all the properties of native starch with some special features such as non-foaming & non-thinning characteristics of boiling solution. Hence maize starch has a marginal effect on the efficiency in weaving and paper industry. Where high viscosity starch is used, it imparts higher tensile strength to the fiber and thus improves the sizing.

ADVANTAGES
  • Power house of calories
  • Gastric dumping syndrome reliever
  • Rashes, burns and itching can be overcome by applying some corn starch on the affected area
  • Corn Starch removes excess oil from the skin
APPLICATIONS
  • Maize starch is used for its gelling or thickening properties in many sectors of agro-food applications (soups, delicatessen meats, sauces, pastas, creams).
  • Used in Pastry, cream, Desserts, coating, etc.
  • Sometimes preferred over flour alone because it forms a translucent mixture, rather than an opaque one.
UNIQUE FEATURES
  • Flour adjuster (biscuits, cakes)
  • Viscosity Reducer
  • Ingredient for baby food powder
