Tapioca starch product use
Native tapioca starch is widely used in food formulations, such as bakery products, as well as extruded snacks and tapioca beads. Modified starch or starch derivatives have been used as thickeners, binders, bulking agents and stabilizers, as well as excellent bulking agents, sweeteners, flavoring agents and fat substitutes. Foods that use Thai tapioca starch include canned food, frozen food, dry mix food, baked food, snacks, condiments, soups, sausages, dairy products, meat and fish products, and baby food.
Modified starches are used as colloidal stabilizers in beverages containing solids. In beverages, tapioca sweeteners are superior to sucrose because the former improves processing and enhances product characteristics, and can be combined with other sweeteners to fully meet consumer needs. The highly hydrolyzed syrup formed by the hydrolysis of tapioca starch is an ideal source of fermentable sugars in beer brewing.
Raw tapioca starch and various modified starches have many uses in confectionary production, such as gelling, thickening, stabilizing the system, enhancing foaming, controlling crystallization, bonding, film forming, adding luster, etc. Low-viscosity tapioca starch is best used in gelatinized confectionery, such as jelly and chewing gum. The most commonly used is acid-thinned starch, because it has excellent reversibility and gelling ability, and these characteristics are enhanced when it encounters sugar. Dry starch is used as a release agent in confectionary making. Starch-based polysaccharides enable the production of sugar-free chewing gum.
Adhesives and Glues
Tapioca starch dextrin is an excellent adhesive with various applications, including corrugated cardboard, paper bags, plywood, gummed paper, adhesive tape, labels, stamps and envelopes, etc.
The application of modified starch in the paper industry can improve paper quality, increase productivity and pulp utilization. Cationic starches are used to flocculate pulp and improve wet end dewatering efficiency, resulting in higher machine speeds and higher pulp utilization. The starch that remains on the finished paper acts as an internal sizing agent to increase paper strength. Low-viscosity starches, such as oxidized starches, are used as surface sizing agents to increase paper strength and improve ink absorption in printing and writing. Modified starch is also used as a binder in pigment coatings to produce smooth, white paper.
In the textile industry, tapioca starch is often used as a sizing agent to harden and protect yarns in order to improve spinning efficiency; as a finishing agent to produce fabrics with a smooth hand; as a color enhancer to obtain clear and clear printed fabrics. For textile applications, lightly cooked starches are ideal.
Pharmaceuticals and Cosmetics
Tapioca native starch and modified starch can be used as binder, bulking agent and disintegrant in tablet production. Specially modified starches can be used as emollient carriers, usually such emollients are mineral oil based substances. Other modified starches can be used as emulsifiers, encapsulating agents (vitamins), styling agents (hair mousse) and thickeners (shampoo), etc.
In addition, tapioca starch can also be used to make whole-starch capsule shells. Compared with traditional gelatin capsule shells, whole-starch capsule shells made of tapioca starch have higher stability, are not easy to absorb water, are not easy to cross-link with medicinal powder, and are not easy to breed bacteria. And other advantages, widely respected in European and American countries.
