Maize Starch Powder


Starch a common name applied to a white, granular or powdery, odourless, tasteless, Complex carbohydrate, (C6H10O5) abundant in the seeds of cereal plants and in bulbs and tubers. Molecules of starch are made of hundreds or thousands of atoms.

Starch molecules are of two kinds. In first kind ,amylose ,which constitutes about 20-25 percent of ordinary starch ,the C6H10O5 groups are arranged in a continuous but curled chain somewhat like a coil of rope. In the second kind, amylopectin, considerable side-branching of the molecules occurs.
Starch is almost insoluble in cold water and in alcohol, but with boiling water it gives a colloidal suspension that may form a jelly on cooling. Hot water changes starch slowly into smaller molecules. This reaction, an example of hydrolysis, is catalyzed by acid and by some enzymes giving still simpler molecules, the ultimate products being maltose, C12H22O11, a disaccharide, and glucose, C6H12O6, a monsaccharide.

Applications :

Pharmaceutical Industry
Maize Starch is used in Pharmaceutical Industry as a dusting media for various type of coating as well as binder & filler for capsules & tables. It is widely accepted in the areas of Dry granulation techniques where active ingredient are hygroscopic and is difficult to dry after wet binding, Maize Starch has proved to be as a efficient dry – binder.

Textile Industry
Maize Starch is used in textile industry to provide stiffness & to add weight to cloths. Starch is also used in conjunction with thermoplastic or thermosetting resins to obtain a permanent finish.

Paper Industry
Maize Starch is used in paper industry for sizing as well as to increase the paper strength. The purpose of size press application is to improve appearance and erasibility ink penetration and form a hard firm surface for writing or Printing, to produce surface fiber picking, and to prepare the sheet for subsequent coating. Corn Starch is used as an adhesive in pigmented coating for paper and paper board. The primary purpose of coating is to enhance the printability and appearance of the paper.

Maize Starch Powder is available in 50 Kgs Plastic lined HDPE woven bags.

Dextrine (White & Yellow )


Unlike starch, Dextrins are soluble in water. The severity of the heat and acid treatment determines the degree of solubility, which is the basis for classifying or grading Dextrins . Finished Dextrins are very fine, powder varying in colour from pure white to light yellow.

Dextrine are prepared by roasting starch in the presence of acid, which chemically changes the character and properties of starch. They are intermediate between starch and sugars derived from starch. They are starch converted products, which find applications in dyes, adhesives, foundries and other industries.

  • High Strength Films
  • Excellent Adhesive Properties
  • Wide Range of Water Solubilities 20

Applications :

Adhesive Industry
The adhesive industry uses large amounts of yellow Dextrin in the preparation of liquid and dry adhesives.Dextrins go into solution instantly and with a lesser quantity of water. Because of their greater adhesive strength and fluidity, dextrins are widely used in the manufacture of :-

  • Spiral and convolute tubes.
  • Carbon paper manufacturing, abrasives and in dry distemper.
  • Machine labeling of tins, cartons, packages, envelopes, corrugated boxes etc.
  • Also used by crackers manufacturer due to its adhesive properties & also explosive character.
  • In Paper tubes and Paper cones.
  • In book-binding, carton sealing, cigarette pasting, match-head & match box making.
  • As a core binder in refractories and foundry operations.

Chemical & Dyes industry
The advantages of Dextrins in the dyestuff industry are so well recognized that good many large-scale manufacturers have taken to using highly soluble Dextrins as diluent to standardize the dyes with respect to the range of colors. Dextrin’s wash out quickly and easily and do not react with chemicals used in the process.

Yellow Dextrins serves as an excellent binding agent for sand cores in foundry operations. It gives high green bond strength necessary for the mould to remain intact during handling.

Textile industry
As Dextrins do not easily react with chemicals, they are specifically suitable for applications in the textile field. In textile printing, they are used as thickness. Free of grit and other impurities, which usually accompany lower grades of starch, they ensure that the copper rolls (used in printing) do not suffer from abrasion. In sizing, they are used with starch for increased adhesiveness. In finishing, they give desired ‘feel’ and handle to the fabrics.

Colour Industry
Dextrins are largely used in dry distemper. Two to three percent of dextrins , mixed with chalk and pigment, acts as a carrier and imparts good adhesion of the colour to the wall.

Liquid Glucose


Glucose syrup is regular conversion, ion-exchanged syrup, produced under very stringent manufacturing specification. It is a purified, aqueous solution of nutritive saccharides obtained from starch.
Generally known as corn syrup manufactured by subjecting starch to high temperature in presents of acids. Normally glucose syrup is a mixture of Dextrose, Tetra, and Penta in higher saccharides.

Applications :

Confectionary & Ice-Cream Industry
The purpose of using glucose in making Jams and Jellies is to prevent their cane sugar ingredient from crystallizing. In addition to this, glucose syrup prevents spoilage of the product without unduly increasing its sweetness. In confectionery, hard candies are made entirely out of Glucose syrup, without additing cane sugar. In Ice Cream, Glucose syrup not only prevents sucrose crystallization but also imparts a smoother texture.

Bakery Industry
Commercial Bakeries do use liquid glucose for pies, cream fillings, eclairs & candies.

Tobacco Industry
Glucose syrup is used in the preparation of Chewing Tobacco to impart flavour and to promote desirable texture and keeping qualities. It is also used for flavouring and dressing tobacco for Cigarettes.

Pharmaceutical Industry
In the Pharmaceutical industry, it is used as a base for various liquid formulations, such as tonics, elixirs, cough syrups, etc. It has a moderate sweetness, which is preferable to the excessive sweetness of sugar. Also, it has the advantage of not crystallizing when stored.

Tanning Industry
The action of glucose in Tanning gives pliability and weight to the leather. In the chrome process glucose syrup is used because of its reducing action. This causes the chrome to be precipitated into the body of the leather Approx. 5% of the weight of the finished leather is introduced in the form of sugar.

Dextrose Anhydrous (C6H12O6)


The crystalline form of pure α-D-Glucose of crystallization. It is Produced from high DE syrup by crystallization above 60 degree centigrade.

The anhydrous form of D-glucose, a natural monosaccharide and carbohydrate. Dextrose serves to replenish lost nutrients and electrolytes. The agent provides metabolic energy and is the primary ingredient in oral rehydration salts (ORS) and is used in intravenous (IV) fluids to provide nutrients to patients under intensive care who are unable to receive them by the oral route. Solutions containing dextrose restore blood glucose levels and provide calories and may aid in minimizing liver glycogen depletion and exerts a protein-sparing action. Dextrose anhydrous also plays a role in the production of proteins and in lipid metabolism.

Dextrose Monohydrate (C6H12O6.H2O)


The crystalline form of pure α-D-Glucose containing one molecule of water of crystallization. It is Produced from high DE syrup by crystallization under controlled cooling.

In the food industry, Dextrose Monohydrate is used in the production of baked goods, candy and gum, creams and frozen dairy products (like some ice-creams and frozen yogurts), alcoholic beverages, jarred and canned foods, cured meats and also energy drinks. (See information below.)

  • It’s also a common component of complete nutrition drinks and infant formulas.
  • Interestingly, Dextrose Monohydrate has preservative properties and is often used in fruit and vegetable processing to help keep them fresh. It’s also used in dehydration.
  • One advantage of Dextrose Monohydrate as a preservative is that it doesn’t alter the natural flavor of the food, especially compared to using sugar, another useful preservative.
