The process of manufacturing starch from Tapioca involves rupturing of cell walls while the enclosed starch granules are exposed & washed in order to remove cellulose. The plant/ root which is used for manufacturing starch is cleaned with water in a washing machine so that any dirt sticking gets washed away. After the washing/ cleaning process, it is disintegrated mechanically, and the pulp is obtained which contains starch granules along with finely divided fibrous tissue.
The mixture is then taken to a sifting machine as well as washed with water & hen sieved through fine brass-wire. Small particles of starch & some fibrous matter pass down as milky aqueous dispersions while coarser particles of cellulose remain on the sieve. This mixture is allowed to stand so that heavier starch granules can settle at the bottom, and the lighter particles are scrapped off. Large granules are then centrifuged to make it free from water, are slowly dried in air.
We are engaged in manufacturing modified starches that are widely used in the food, textile, chemical, and other industries. Tapioca Starch is obtained from tuberous roots of the manioc plant. This plant grows mainly in equatorial climates.
The premium quality starch offered by us is tasteless, odorless, insoluble in water, and granules vary in size and shape.
