In Ancient Egypt, starch production was used mainly for coating and gluing the papyrus sheets. Today, the paper industry still uses the same technique even if starch processing equipment has changed immensely. But besides shiny reams, starch has a fundamental place in the food and beverages industry.

Use specialized starch processing equipment to recover higher purity
You can obtain starch from many sources, such as corn, wheat, rice, potato, or cassava. No matter the starch source, it should be white, odorless, and tasteless. Purity is an important parameter to have a competitive starch production.
You need to pre-clean, deep clean, and filter your starch using water. Separate contaminants, fibers, and contents from the starch using water and a centrifuge. The primary challenge for starch processing equipment is to reduce water consumption while increasing the purity of the final product.
An efficient hydro-cyclone system that reduces water intake while ensuring starch concentration and purity is one good solution. Another viable method is to invest in water treatment technology to recycle water.
The use of starch beyond food
Beyond food and beverages, starch has many uses. Pharmaceutical industries uses starch to make tablets and capsules easy to dissolve. The paper and textile industry uses starch to give its products shape, thickness, and strength.
Your starch production can also be used as a biopolymer. You can make binders for constructions or plastics such as tableware, cutlery, and bags with starch constructions or plastics such as tableware, cutlery, and bags.
Cassava starch-based bags to replace single-use plastic bags
79% of all the plastic in the world is dumped in landfills or other natural environments. This is threatening animal life and polluting the planet. The alarming situation prompted many countries to pass laws restricting the consumption of single-use plastics.
A new generation of bioplastic bags is being made from cassava starch to replace petroleum-based plastics. These bags can be diluted in water or sent to compost.
You can find cassava bags mainly produced in Asia and Latin America. This new trend is spreading to other continents. Meanwhile, other starch sources are being tested and used to produce bioplastics.
