Starch hydrolysis – nutritive syrups and powders

Using advanced enzymatic starch conversion technologies followed by modern separation and purification processes and blending practices provide today a manifold of nutritive syrups and powders offering a wide range of carbohydrate functionalities. High fructose syrups and glucose syrups comprising high dextrose and high maltose syrups, available also in their dried or pure crystalline forms, cover a wide range of food, pharmaceutical and technical applications. Beyond controlled sweetness starch saccharification products provide a diversity of physical properties such as viscosity, reducing sugar content, osmotic pressure, crystallisation retardation, gloss, humectancy, consistency and many others.
