Rice Starch Market Overview:

Rice starch is characterized by tiny granules of the order of 2 to 8 μm, much lower than those of other cereals, tubers, and roots, such as corn and potatoes. Its granule size is almost similar to the size of the fat globules. Therefore, it is ideal for imitating an oily and full-bodied mouthfeel. It offers creamy textures and can serve as a natural fat substitute. It can be widely used in the food industry, the pharmaceutical industry, the chemical industry, and the cosmetic and personal care industry. In the world rice starch market, the supply of raw materials is complete. But many manufacturers have given up in recent years due to low gross product margins and the price of corn starch is lower than that of rice starch in some applications. All manufacturers around the world are committed to improving production technology. In the past two years, Chinese manufacturers have almost caught up with the world's leading technology. Like Anhui Lianhe and Anhui, Huan Tian Biotechnology Company can produce food-grade rice starch and industrial-grade rice starch. It is believed that the rice starch market is emerging, and the consumption increasing degree will show smooth growth in the rice starch market.
