Japan Cornstarch -for all needs related to cornstarch,modified starch,glycated products,and bio degradable plastics


Modifed starch


A range of modified starches to meet diverse needs

Japan Cornstarch manufactures modified starches developed by the use of high technologies which we have gained through cornstarch development.

Modified food starch is used in frozen foods, retort-pouch foods, sauces, noodles, fish pastes, confectionaries, and other food product industries.

Applications of modified industrial starch include internal sizing, external sizing, coating, and interlaminar sprays for the paper manufacturing industry, as well as corrugating medium for the cardboard industry.

It is also used in other industries including the textile and construction materials industries.
