Amaranth Starch: 90-95% starch content on a dried basis.

Unique Properties of Amaranth Starches
The bulk of the amaranth seed is composed of starch, constituting 50-65% by weight of a unique type. Amaranth starch is notable for its small granule size, ranging from 1 to 3 microns. This small size imparts a silky texture, uniform cell structure, excellent moisture retention, and good clarity.

Amaranth starch is widely used in various applications, including:
Baby Foods, Breads and Rolls, Cakes, Cereals, Chips, Confectionery, Cookies, Cosmetics, Crackers, Desserts, Dairy Products, Doughnuts, Dry Mixes, Herbal Teas, Nutritional Bars, Nutritional Beverages etc

Properties of Amaranth Starch

  • Freeze-Thaw Stability: Amaranth starch can withstand four freeze-thaw cycles, making it ideal for frozen foods.
  • Rapid Digestion: In vitro studies show that amaranth starch is digested 2-3 times faster than other regular starches.
  • Low Pasting Temperature: With a pasting temperature of 63°C, compared to 76°C for corn starch, amaranth starch is suitable for instant soups and vegetable soups, ensuring complete dispersion during filling.
  • Versatility: Its small granule size allows use as a talc replacement, aerosol carrier for cosmetics, and biodegradable filler in polymeric packaging.
  • High Water Binding Capacity: This property makes it effective in various applications.
  • Low Tendency to Retrograde: Amaranth starch maintains its stability over time.
  • Superior Adhesion: Provides better quality adhesion for various uses.
  • Emulsion Stability: Ideal for emulsion foods like salad dressings.
  • Protective Colloid: Prevents or reduces protein denaturation in canned foods.
  • Enzymatic Degradation: Shows good susceptibility to degradation by pancreatin and glucoamylase.
  • Viscosity Retention: Retains viscosity effectively in different formulations.
