Potato starch Production Cost Analysis 2020

Potato starch is a starch that is taken from potatoes. Potato starch contains typical large oval, spherical granules ranging in size from somewhere between 5 to 100 µm. It is a very refined starch, with minimal protein or fat. This gives the powder a bright white colour and the cooked starch typical characteristics of neutral taste, excellent clarity, high binding strength, along with a rich texture and a minimal tendency to foaming or yellowing of the solution.

Potato starch is composed of around 800 ppm phosphate bound to the starch. This improves the viscosity of the product and, thus, gives the solution a slightly anionic character with a low gelatinization temperature of approximately 60 °C (140 °F)  and high swelling power. These typical properties are seen in food and technical applications.

Starch derivatives are used extensively in several recipes, like in noodles, wine gums, cocktail nuts, potato chips, hot dog sausages, bakery cream or instant soups and sauces, in gluten-free recipes, in kosher foods for Passover, and Asian cuisines.

Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Potato starch production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
