Maize (Corn) Starch

Native Maize Starch A-grade of high purity & high quality from proven technology. The product is very consistent in quality. Maize Starch exhibits all the properties of native starch with some special features such as non-foaming & non-thinning characteristics of boiling solution. Hence maize starch has a marginal effect on the efficiency in weaving and paper industry. Where high viscosity starch is used, it imparts higher tensile strength to the fiber and thus improves the sizing.
