Starch derivatives are used in many recipes, for example in noodles, wine gums, cocktail nuts, potato chips, hot dog sausages, bakery cream and instant soups and sauces, in gluten-free recipes, in kosher foods for Passover and in Asian cuisine. In pastry, e.g. sponge cake, it is used to keep the cake moist and give a soft texture.It is also occasionally used in the preparation of pre-packed. Starch production is an isolation of starch from plant sources. It takes place in starch plants. Starch industry is a part of food processing which is using starch as a starting material for production of starch derivatives, hydrolysates, dextrins.. At first, the raw material for the preparation of the starch was wheat Untreated starch requires heat to thicken or gelatinize. When a starch is pre-cooked, it can then be used to thicken instantly in cold water. Cold-swelling or pre-gelatinized (pre-gel) potato starch is starch cooked and then dried on a drum dryer or in an extruder making the starch cold water soluble. This is a physical modification of the starch Starch is a white powdery substance that is often colorless and tasteless and exists in all plant seeds and tubers. Examples of every day starches include potato starch, cornstarch, and tapioca. People use starch for a multitude of purposes, especially in cooking. Starch is used in its basic form to thicken food such as sauces
