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. The presence of granule showing cracks or edge irregularities is exceptional in starches other than wheat starch.

Starch IP is used as inert filler cum binder during manufacture of pharmaceutical tablets. Its low particle size ensure smooth tablet surface. It also functions as tablet disintegrant as well as acts as a filler and inert carrier of medicine. Starch IP complies with all characteristics of Indian pharmacopeia.
