POTATO STARCH

Starch is one of the most multi-functional materials in the food industry. Potato starch is obtained by the mechanical separation of starch granules from other components of the potato, and then rinsing, cleaning, drying and sifting. Starch is a polysaccharide acting as the backup material of plants. The crystal structures of the starch grains are formed by the starch macromolecules; that is amylopectin macromolecules of linear amylose. Amylose and amylopectin differ in many important features, because the proportion in which they appear in a certain type of starch is determined by its physicochemical properties.

In some parts its natural properties are used for gel formation and densification. In the food industry and pharmacy, starch is used to provide a particular product with a suitable texture, appearance (forms), moisture, consistency and stability during storage.
