  • How much demand will there be for starch-based sweeteners after the lifting of quotas ?
  • Would it replace sugar and what then will the impact be on sugar beet producers ?
  • How would the EU biobased economy present opportunities for sugar and starch producers and what are the new value added streams including biobased plastics and polymers ?
  • What novel enzymes are  currently in development to produce new generation of starch derivatives ?
  • Starches play a vital role in our everyday life. It is the most common carbohydrate in the human diet and is contained in many staple foods.
  • Starches are can-do ingredients, delivering thickening and binding, freeze-thaw stability.
  • Whether it’s creating cakes that don’t crumble, ice-cream  with indulgent texture, manufacturers need starches to deliver the food experiences consumers demand.
  • Starch is also used in paper coating as one of the binders for the coating formulation, and in many other industrial applications from textiles to oil drilling.
  • With growing calls for naturality and transparency in the supply chain, what does this mean for starch processors ? If processed it out, what is next for clean label?
