Modified Starch Market Current Trends and Future Estimations to 2027

Modified Starch Market by Raw Material (Corn, Cassava, Potato, Wheat), End-User (Food & Beverages, Feed, and Industrial), Form (Dry and Liquid), and Region (North America, Europe, APAC, South America, Rest of the World) - Global Forecast to 2027


Northbrook, IL 60062 -- (SBWire) -- 09/06/2022 --The global modified starch market is estimated to be valued at USD 13.7 billion in 2022. It is projected to reach USD 15.9 billion by 2027, recording a CAGR of 3.1% during the forecast period. Modified starches are manufactured from native starches. Various processing methods such as physical, enzymatic, wet & dry chemical processes, drum drying, and extrusion are used to produce different types of modified starch products. These processes are used to change the properties of native starch, such as its freeze-thaw stability, acid or alkali resistance, and shear stability to meet industrial requirements. Modified starches are used for functions such as thickening, stabilizing, binding, and emulsification. Apart from food products, it is also used in a wide range of non-food applications and the animal feed industry.

Native Modified Starch is Suitable for Use in Pet Foods and Animal Nutrition

Native modified starch is used for a wide range of practical purposes in food products. Its high water-binding capacity is helpful in noodles, soups and sauces, canned vegetables, meat and bakery products, snacks and confectionaries, dry mixes, and a variety of extruded food products. It provides high viscosity and heightens the taste, odor, and color of the food in which it is used due to the low protein and fat/lipid content. It is a flexible ingredient in various foods, providing good organoleptic properties.

Native modified starch is also suitable for use in pet foods and animal nutrition. It serves as a digestible energy source for animals and allows adapting and/or improving the texture of the finished product during palletization and extrusion processes. Among the major industrially produced modified starches, potato starch stands out with distinct characteristics that make it a choice ingredient in food manufacturing. Native modified starch also has the highest viscosity among all the major native starches. It reaches a peak viscosity of 3000 BU at 60 degrees Celsius–65 degrees Celsius. It also exhibits the highest swelling power and solubility at 95 degrees Celsius compared to other native starches.

Increased Production in Lesser Time Boosting the Industrial Usage of Microbial Enzymes

Microbial enzymes play a major role in the industrial enzymes market because they are more stable than plant and animal enzymes. They can be produced through fermentation techniques in a cost-effective manner with less time and space requirement, and because of their high consistency, process modification and optimization are easily done. Novel enzymes that cannot be extracted from plants and animals are derived from microorganisms and can be easily used. Enzymes are biocatalysts that play an important role in metabolic and biochemical reactions. Microbial enzymes are mainly produced by submerged fermentation and solid-state fermentation. The enormous diversity of microbial enzymes makes them an important source of raw materials for industrial applications, such as bioethanol, Paper & pulp, textile & leather, detergents, feed, and wastewater treatment. For example, the use of microbial enzymes in the Paper & pulp industry allows the secondary fiber structure to loosen up, releasing the embedded ink with reduced usage of alkali, chemicals, and detergents.
