CORN STARCH

Corn starch is a powdered product produced from corn through soaking, crushing, separation, and purification and drying, with white. In starch sugar industry, corn starch is extensively applied to produce high maltose syrup, high fructose syrup and maltodextrin. Corn starch is extensively applied in papermaking and chemical industries as modified starch produced by modified starch industry. In fermentation industry, corn starch is used to produce monosodium glutamate and citric acid, etc. Corn starch is also broadly applied in metallurgy and casting industries.
