We manufacture and supply high quality maize starch from pure derivatives in India. Maize starch (C6H10O5) is mostly demanded by the food packaging industry as its natural, modified, pregeletanised and dextrinised forms provide viscosity and texture to products such as microwaveable goods, dry mixes, extruded snacks and frozen can. They are actually cereal starch with low protein and ash contents.
