Starch Sweeteners

Starch sweetener are sucrose alternatives obtained through the hydrolysis of starch, widely used in the food industry, beverage industry, pharmaceuticals, and many other industries. The production process of starch sweeteners typically involves enzymatic or acid hydrolysis of starch, transforming starch into sugar with the help of enzymes or chemical catalysis.

Starch sweeteners possesses excellent solubility and stability, making it an ideal additive in many food and beverage products. In the food industry, starch sweetener is commonly used in the production of pastries, candies, beverages, and seasonings, providing not only sweetness but also improving the texture and mouthfeel of the products.

Furthermore, starch sweeteners have extensive applications in the animal feed industry, pharmaceuticals, and biotechnology. In animal feed industry, starch syrup serves as an energy source, while in pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, it can be used as main carbon sources for fermentation.
