Cold water starch powder

starch(a) Modification of raw starch methods
Dry method: Here the roller mills are heated to above 1000C. The raw starch mixed with ash is fed into the rollers. The starch gells as it rolls over the hot cylinders of the rollers. The gelled starch now in cakes or flakes are collected and grinded in the pulveriser. Perfume and colorant may be added at this stage.

Roller formulation: 50kg batch
Cassava (or other) starch – 49.5kg
Soda ash (optional) – 0.5kg
Total – 50 kg

This mixture is rolled in the hot cylinder of the rolers

Pulveriser formulation: 50 kg batch

Gelled starch mixture – 50 kg
Colourant (optional) – 1 TSP
Total – 50kg

The mixture is grinded

The grinded starch is now packed in the required sachets and cartons for sale. This method is expensive because of the cost of the rollers.
