Abstract

Starch is an important ingredient in a wide range of foods. It is used as a thickener, to adjust texture, to improve appearance or to act as a fiiller. The starch industry also supplies a diverse range of non-food markets with starch and starch derivatives. These markets account for approximately 37% of the output of the European starch industry and 24% of the total UK starch supply, but starch crops do not represent a signifiicant proportion of industrial cropping in the UK.
