Usage / Purpose:

Tapioca starch can be used in various industries such as:
1. Food and beverage industries: Tapioca starch can be used to make sweeteners (80 percent of the raw material for sweetener products, such as glucose and fructose syrups), increase strengthening, add viscosity and concentration in numbers of food and beverage industries.
2. Textile industry: Tapioca starches occupy an important place in such operations as warp sizing, cloth finishing and printing.
3. Foundry: Tapioca starch is used as an adhesive for coating the sand grains and binding them together in making cores which are placed in moulds in the manufacture of castings for metals.
4. Remoistening gums: Tapioca starch based adhesives are coated and dried on surfaces, such as postage stamps and envelope flaps, for moistening by the user before application to another surface.
5. Glue industry: Tapioca starch is the most important raw material in the production of both dry and wet glues. When it comes into contact with hot water or chemicals, it becomes sticky and stays sticky.
6. Well drilling: Tapioca starches and modified starches mixed with clay are used to give the correct viscosity and water-holding capacity in bores for the exploratory drilling of oil wells or water wells.
7. Wallpaper and other home uses: Various types of starch-based products are used as adhesives for wallpaper and other domestic uses.
8. Other Uses: Tapioca starch is used in many other industries such as Plywood industry, MSG and lysine industries, Medical industry, or Biodegradable materials.
