Starch is considered as one of the versatile food additives in the food industry. Industrial starch is extensively used in the food industry as it offers an excellent stabilizing effect.  Furthermore, industrial starch can be modified either chemically or physically for multipurpose uses. The industrial starch comes from a low-cost source such as corn, rice, and others. The capacity of easy modification is making starch as one of the most crucial ingredients in food preparation.

Industrial starch is extensively used in convenient foods as a functional ingredient owing to its desirable attributes such as it can improve crispiness, reduce oil absorption, and can improve the overall quality of the food product. Starch-based coatings can replace fat or oil in low-fat baked food. The prominent companies are focused on research and development and on new product development and launches to increase their footprints in the global industrial starch market. For instance, in April 2017, Ingredion Inc. launched new texturizers Presica Crisp 31 (native corn starch) and Presica Crisp 151 (modified tapioca starch) for baked chips.
