Conventional

Our wheat starch consists of the carbohydrate fraction of wheat flour and is a polysaccharide established from amylose and amylopectin.
It is a high product derived from very quality flour and looks like white flour, insoluble in water, with a neutral smell and taste.
Thanks to its characteristics, the product finds application in various industrial sectors, such as food, paper, pharmaceutical and various industries (textiles, construction, etc.).

Appearance: 
The product is presented as white color flour (powder), insoluble in cold water, neutral smell and taste.
Compliance: 
Our wheat starch complies with EU directives currently in force and meets the requirements of current food regulations.
How do you obtain it: 
The Production is carried out entirely at our production site, using soft wheat from selected suppliers of the European Community. The raw material is initially ground and, subsequently, the starch is extracted with mechanical action and use of water. The components of wheat starch are mainly amylose, amylopectin, and water; the product contains a minimum percentage of protein. The drying is carried out maintaining the characteristics of the product intact.
