The uses of starch
The high purity and bacteriological quality of the starch industry’s products has led to their incorporation in aquafeed, as a replacement for fish meal. Starch products are commonly used for their nutritive value, particularly as a source of proteins and carbohydrates or for their vitamin content. They are particularly suitable for feed intended for young fish. In addition, starch and starch derivatives are used as processing aids, as a binding agent, as a thickener, to stabilise the viscosity of the feed, etc.
