Application

The addition of starch to the wet end of the paper is generally referred to as beater sizing. Here, the primary function of starch is to increase paper strength, to lay surface fuzz and to increase stiffness and rattle of the paper.

many foods, which is vital to both the consumer and the food manufacturer, as a major factor that governs the acceptability and palatability of most food products. Corn Starch, because of its abundance and low cost, is used wherever its properties are applicable.
Cornstarch finds numerous uses in the baking industry. Addition of starch makes hard wheat flour preferred for cakes.
Corn starch is used to give proper strength to ice cream cones and sugar water shells. In addition to the above mentioned uses, it finds numerous uses in "dusting" to facilitate certain baking operations. Starch is also used as an inert ingredient in baking powder and also in salad dressing.
In short starch is used by the textile industry in a number of different ways:
As an adhesive in the size mix to strengthen warp yarn and improves its resistance to abrasion during weaving.
In finishing, to change the hand and appearance after it is bleached, dyed and printed.
In printing, to increase the consistency of the printing paste.
As a compound in finishes to glaze and polish sewing thread.
Size is added to yarn to improve the efficiency of the weaving performance and is removed in the first wet processing operation. Since adhesive is the major ingredient of the size mix from the viewpoint of both quantity and price, its choice depends on
How economically it is priced
whether, it offers all the necessary advantages during sizing and can also be easily removed in the usual process of desiring .Of all the starches available commercially, Maize Starch best fulfills the above requirements. It possesses properties superior to native starch as Tapioca and Tamarind Kernel Powder.
Maize Products also manufactures starches suitable for pharmaceutical uses. Such as binder or disintegrating agent in tablets under the trade name 'Corn Starch fulfills all specifications as per pharmacopoeia.
