Starch separation, or extraction, is the first stage in the starch conversion process. The raw material, corn or wheat, is finely milled to facilitate the separation of starch from the oil, protein, and fibers. Enzymes aid the processing of these complex raw materials by easing the separation step.
• Increase gluten yield by efficiently removing pentosans and starch
• Maximize capacity
• Improve starch purity by extracting a greater yield of high-value A-starch
• Use less process water and save energy due to lower evaporator costs
