Native pea starch: native Nastar feed

NastarThe native starch, produced by Cosucra Groupe Warcoing S.A. (site Provital Industrie), is obtained after separation of the fibres and decantation of the starch from the proteins.

Characteristics

  • Native starch is not soluble in water.
  • Native pea starch is composed of ± 20% of starch resistant to enzymatic hydrolysis in normal conditions of the human digestion.
  • Native pea starch shows a good resistance to heat and acid conditions.
  • Compared to other starches, its gelling properties are very high.

Granulometry: <250µm
Density (after packing): 0,70 kg/l
Colour: white
Taste: neutral

Composition on dry matter


Carbohydrates:

99 +/- 1%
of which: ± 35% amylose
± 65% amylopectin
Total protein max. 0,5%
Total fat max. 0,4%
Total ashes max. 0,2%
   
Dry matter 90 +/- 2%

Applications

  • In piglet feed: due to its specific structure, the pea starch degradation is slower and consequently facilitates the development of the intestinal flora.
  • In coated feed: the native pea starch has high gelling properties.

Packaging

  • Polyethylene filmed multi-layer paper bags of 25kg net, pallets of 750kg net (120x80x140cm)
