Wheat Starch Market Segmented By Type such as native wheat starch, modified wheat starch with Grade such as food grade, feed grade and industrial grade
Wheat starch is produced from wheat species such as Triticum aestivum, which is also known as bread wheat. Starch is one of the main carbohydrate in wheat which comprises of around 60-75% of grain and around 70-80% of flour. Amount of starch obtained from wheat is nearly 7% as compared with others sources of starch such as cassava (12%), potato (4%), others (0.5%), and maize (77%).
Wheat starch contains carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins. Wheat starch is obtained from wheat wet milling process. Commercially, wheat starch is produced by processes such as dough-washing, batter, or hydroclone or dough-batter process. Dough-washing process consists of washing of the dough for separating gluten and starch.
Around 75-80% of starch is present in flour, while 5-10% of the starch obtained is second grade starch which consists of small granules, proteins, and pentosans. In hydroclone process, the starch is separated from gluten by using battery of hydroclones. High pressure disintegration process is the highly used process for wheat starch extraction.
The high pressure shearing frees starch granules from proteins and disperses throughout the slurry. Wheat starch is non-gluten, non-GMO (genetically modified organisms) and non-allergenic ingredient and is highly preferred by consumers which are gluten intolerant.
