Maize Starch - 'A' Grade

The product is very consistent in quality. Maize native starch possesses special features such as non-foaming & non-thinning characteristics in boiling solution. Hence maize starch has a marginal effect on the efficiency in weaving and paper industry. Where high viscosity starch is used, it imparts higher tensile strength to the fiber and thus improves the sizing.
