Starch Industries: Processes and Innovative Products in Food and Non-Food Uses is the third volume of the "Underground Starchy Crops of South American Origin" book series. Organized in five volumes, this series brings information on the applied level of producing and using starch from a range of plants grown in tropical and subtropical areas that have South American origin.

This book presents starch extraction and its food and non-food uses, using large and small industrial processes. The methods and equipment of these technologies are analyzed in detail, so that it is easy to be understood by a diverse public, increasing the visibility of the great potential of use of starchy tubers, rhizomes and roots, and improving processing options. Specifically in processing cassava, which is the only cultivation done on a commercial scale in South America, it is possible to extract starch in industries equipped with equipment, comparable to that of China, Thailand and Vietnam. This title also explores the extraction of smaller starches, such as canna starch, sweet potato and arrowroot from South China, which does not sell starch but transforms it into food paste in small extruders.

Edited by a team of experts with a solid background on starch extraction research, the books are aimed at all those involved in research and development, new technological processes, quality control and legislation in the field of starch.
