Manufacturing of Pregelatinized Starch

Investment Opportunities in Pregelatinized Starch

Manufacturing of Pregelatinized Starch. Profitable business of Maize Starch & Derivatives products.

Pregelatinized starches are convenient and easy to use, providing an ideal solution for products such as instant soups, baby foods and baked goods. Pregelatinization gives native and stabilized starches the ability to form a cold water paste. They develop viscosity without the need for heat which means that the food manufacturer does not need to pre-cook the starch. Pregelatinized starches retain most of the functional properties and viscosity of the original base material.

Pregelatinized starch is starch which has been cooked and then dried in the starch factory on a drum dryer or in an extruder making the starch cold-water-soluble. Spray dryers are used to obtain dry starch sugars and low viscous pregelatinized starch powder

1) pharmaceutical grade pregelatinized starch is widely used as a binding and disintegrating agent for tablets, pills and granules, also used as filler for capsules.

2)  Best as dry binder, increase tablet hardness, Decrease tablet friability.

3)  Its self-lubricating property eliminates any negative effect on dissolution.

4)  Superior flow properties ideal for direct compression tableting.

Market Outlook

In cosmetics industry, pregelatinized starch is used as an additive ingredient in cosmetic products, increasing demand for cosmetics product is fueling demand for pregelatinized starch, and cosmetics market segment is expected to grow significantly. In pharmaceutical industry, pregelatinized starch is used as capsule and tablet diluent, capsule disintegrant, binder and a glidant which allows starch to absorb water easily allowing tablets to disintegrate properly.

Pregelatinized starch is used in cosmetic as an additive ingredient which is driving market demand for pregelatinized starch in global market. Pregelatinized starch is used in preparation of tablets as binding agent or tablet diluent makes it popular in pharmaceutical manufacturers in turn fueling growth of pregelatinized starch market. Easy availability of corn starch, wheat flour, potato starch is as raw material is reason for increased consumption and production of pregelatinized starch in consumers on daily basis.

Pregelatinized starch is highly digestible starch derived from corn, potato, and arrowroot and wheat flour. Pregelatinized starch is pre-cooked, dried, and ground for use in various industries. Pregelatinized starch is obtained in flake and powder form which allow products to develop viscosity. Pregelatinized starch is used in products such as baby foods, soups, and baked goods. Pregelatinized starch act as an excipients in food and pharmaceutical industry. Pregelatinized starch absorbs water quickly which helps in easy digestion therefore it is used as disintegrant. Pregelatinized starch acts as food stabilizer to help increases shelf life of food products. Pregelatinized starch is a non-GMO ingredient. Pregelatinized starch is used in industries such as beverage industry, dairy industry, bakery industry etc. which drives market demand.

Depending on geographies global pregelatinized starch market is segmented into five key regions: North America, Latin America, Europe, Middle East and Africa and Asia Pacific. North America dominates the global pregelatinized starch market while Asia Pacific is expected to show significant growth On the basis of consumption North America is leading market and expected to grow. Cosmetic industries are establishing in Europe region which is expected to give boost for demand of pregelatinized starch in global market. Increasing use of pregelatinized starch in pharmaceutical industry is growing therefore gaining interest in global market.
