Wheat starch refers to a fine, white-coloured powder with a neutral odour and taste. It is produced by removing the proteins, including gluten, from wheat flour. Wheat Starch, in its processed state, has a similar appearance to corn starch or flour. On account of its unique combination of properties, wheat starch today represents a vital component of various industries.
In the food industry, it is widely used as a stabilizer and a thickening agent in the preparation of several food items such as sauces, gravies, puddings, pies and other processed foods. It is also used as a constituent in food sweeteners like glucose syrup, maltodextrins and dextrose. Furthermore, it serves as a production component in the pharmaceutical, paper and textile industry.
According to a new report by Expert Market Research, the global wheat starch market reached a volume of 6.4 Million Tons in 2018 and is further expected to reach 6.9 Million Tons by 2024.
