Starch is obtained from various natural sources such as corn, tapioca, rice, wheat, potato, and other, and can be used for various food and non-food applications in its native form. Starch is a form of carbohydrate which helps improve digestion in the body. Starch derivatives are result of series of chemical and physical reactions between raw starch hydroxyl groups and functional groups for removing defects from raw starch in order to produce useful characteristics, to meet the industrial requirements. These starch derivatives include a vast variety of products, with very unique characteristics such as property of gelatinization, chemical resistance, fluid paste, fluid viscosity, and many more. Starch derivatives find application in diverse end-use markets, such as food & beverage, feed and other industrial domains such as paper, textile, chemical, detergents and pharmaceuticals. Starch derivatives are products obtained by processing starch which is majorly used in food and feed applications. Starch derivatives are widely used in variety of industrial applications as per their chemical characteristics and functionalities. For starch derivatives pharmaceuticals is the fastest-growing application. The increasing growing population and rising disposable income levels are driving the end use application growth for starch derivatives.
