2nd Starch World Europe, 30-31 Oct, 2017 – Budapest, HUNGARY
Starch industry in EU is more dynamic than ever as the region will see an end to restrictions come October 2017.
Rabobank believes that isoglucose production could take off, particularly in grain and starch-rich but sugar-poor countries such as Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria.
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?
Held on the 30-31st of October in the vibrant city of Budapest, 2nd Starch World EUROPE is well planned to discuss exciting and relevant issues affecting the region’s starch and relevant industry.
