Corn starch or maize starch is the starch derived from the corn (maize) grain. The starch is obtained from the endosperm of the kernel. Corn starch is a common food ingredient, used in thickening sauces or soups, and in making corn syrup and other sugars. It is versatile, easily modified, and finds many uses in industry as adhesives, in paper products, as an anti-sticking agent, and textile manufacturing. It has medical uses, such as to supply glucose for people with glycogen storage disease.
Functional Advantages Thickening & Gelling agent
Maize starch is most commonly used as a thickening and gelling agent for puddings sauces soups, etc it provides an economical and reliable substitute to other ingredients which are unstable at higher temps.
Texture and clarity
Corn starch helps in achieving the right degree of clarity structure and mouth feel. It is also used to achieve chewiness in gums. They are equally useful as moulding powders and as ingredients of paste food.
Binder & stabilizer (Exciepient)
Corn starch is an effective binder as it allows homogenous dispersion of water in foodstuffs, and acts as a stabilizer. It is an ingredient of choice (along with other modified starches) in the manufacture of soups salad dressings bakery products, various desserts. It is a binder and filler or choice in the pharma industry for tabletting on the application. It acts diluents disintegrating agent.
Sizing- paper and Textiles
Native starch is used to provide dry strength and as a surface improvement aid in alkaline papermaking, starch is a critical part of wet-end sizing it is an integral part of micro-particle retention and works as a binder water holding agent and carrier for surface sizing chemicals and other functional additives. In the manufacture of textiles starch keeps the yarn straight and strong significantly improving its ability to chemical’s withstand the stress of weaving.
Native corn starch forms the basic ingredient for all corn sweeteners. A variety of enzymatic and acid-catalyzed processes are used for the manufacture of corn sweeteners which are used in food to provide clean sweet taste retain moisture, clean sweet taste retain moisture control crystallization and freezing points, contribute to texture provide gloss maintain colour inhibit spoilage and modified density. Corn sweeteners are a major commodity and include products such as Sorbitol, Malto-Dextrins, Glucose syrups, dextrose, high maltose syrups, etc.
Corn starch is an economical fermentation feedstock to produce many organic chemicals The most widely know bio product is ethanol it is made by fermenting sugars produced from corn starch ethanol produced from corn starch promised a renewable source of fuels for care and other engines with environmental advantages.
Bio-PlasticsSince the starch is totally biodegradable in a wide veriety of environments it allows for the development of totally degradable products for specific market needs.

Maize Starch is used in Pharmaceutical Industry as a dusting media for various type of coating as well as binder & filler for capsules & tables. It is widely accepted in the areas of Dry granulation techniques where active ingredient are hygroscopic and is difficult to dry after wet binding, Maize Starch has proved to be as a efficient dry – binder.
Maize Starch is used in textile industry to provide stiffness & to add weight to cloths. Starch is also used in conjunction with thermoplastic or thermosetting resins to obtain a permanent finish.
Maize Starch plays a vital role in food industry due to its characteristic such as viscosity & opaque paste, used for thickening sauces, gravies, puddings and pie fillings. It has numerous application in baking industry, provides strength to ice cream cones.
Maize Starch is used in paper industry for sizing as well as to increase the paper strength. The purpose of size press application is to improve appearance and erasibility ink penetration and form a hard firm surface for writing or Printing, to produce surface fiber picking, and to prepare the sheet for subsequent coating. Corn Starch is used as an adhesive in pigmented coating for paper and paper board. The primary purpose of coating is to enhance the printability and appearance of the paper.
Maize Starch Powder is available in 50 Kgs Plastic lined HDPE woven bags.
