Starch is a prominent constituent in the dietary structure of humans. It is mostly derived from sources such as cassava, potato, sweet potato, wheat, and maize. Different types of sugars are manufactured by starch processing industrial units. Adhesives, glue-making, and pastes are the other major starch processing industries. Much of the demand for starch is derived from the sweeteners industry, since sweeteners are essentially highly processed forms of starch. In fact, the starch market is primarily driven by the food industry. Starch as an input derives its overall demand from food and non-food applications.
