Market Outlook for Thinned Starch Market
Thinned starch is an acid modified starch prepared by partially depolymerization by treatment with an acid or an oxidant that decreases amylase content in the starch. Thinned starch is also called as fluidity starch as it is less viscous on the application of heat.
The thinned starch is a reaction product of granular starch, acid and stabilizing agent. Thinned starches exhibit low heat viscosity, ability to dissolve in cold water, and have a high adhesive and binding power. The thinned starch is used as a binder in the coating composition for paper and paperboard. Native starches compared to modified thinned starch have weak intermolecular bonding and gelatinized very easily and produce high viscosity starch.
Thinned Starch market growth in the food & beverage industry
Thinned starch is predominantly consumed in food and beverage industry due to various improved characteristics that are not offered by other starches such as native starch. Thinned starch is derived from natural sources and is a clean label product which makes it attractive to the major starch manufacturing companies and also to the end-product consumers.
Native starches produced normally are cohesive and rubbery in nature, modification to thinned starch brings about improvement in the functional properties such as increased tolerance to heat, shear, and acid associated food and food processing conditions.
This modified thinned starch with improved properties in viscosity, solubility, stability, gel and film formation, and clarity of product finds a variety of application in different industries mainly Food and Beverages and pharmaceutical industry. Thinned starch is finding various application in the textile and paper industry to replace other expensive materials due to easy availability of its sources and low-cost value.
Global Thinned Starch market: Key players
Major producers of thinned starch include Cargill Inc, Ingredion Inc., Tate & Lyle Inc., Roquette Freres, Archer Daniel Midlands Company, Agrana Starke GmbH., Everest Starch India Pvt. Ltd., Grain Processing Corporation, Visco Starch Manufacturers, SPAC Starch Products Ltd., and MGP Ingredients etc.
Global Thinned Starch market: Key developments
Non-GMO Project: Modified thinned starch has been now included in a Non-GMO Project. Several of major players such as MGP Ingredients, Tate & Lyle has introduced series of new modified Non-GMO verified starches into the market.
Paint and varnish industry, Jan. 2018: Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP, in cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA, are developing a modified starch product derived from a renewable raw material that will be a cost-effective and eco-friendly to substitute expensive binders or film former. Their focus is mainly on potato starch. Modified starch has been used in paints and varnishes as an additive but with starch as a major component of water-based dispersion, adhesion results have improved.
Global Thinned Starch market: Opportunity
The market for thinned starch might grow due to increased demand by the end-use manufacturing industries such as food and beverages, pharmaceutical, textile etc. Rising demand for convenience food due to hectic lifestyle in many countries as well as development in the healthcare sector and the pharmaceutical industry are the main reasons for growth in the global thinned starch market. Emerging economies such as India and China are likely to show the high-growth opportunity to thinned starch.
Also, rapid growth in high-tech technologies and improvement in R&D to produce novel and innovative product to satisfy the large group of a consumer having different eating habits boosts the market growth for thinned starch.
With water supply decreasing due to global warming and more mouths to feed due to increasing population, sorghum a semiarid crop is emerging as an important future crop as a source of starch. Knowledge about sorghum processing is limited. India is the largest producer of sorghum in the world which might have increased opportunity in the thinned starch market.
Acid-treated thinned starch can sometimes cause the formation of off-note in delicacy flavored foods. This is one drawback that limits the opportunity for thinned starch. Adding modified thinned starch for a specific application, the desired flavor profile of the end product should be kept in mind, and also impact of the chosen starch on that flavor.
