The global resistant starch market is set to witness growth at a CAGR of 6.6% during the forecast period, totaling a valuation of US$ 19.9 Bn by 2032. Rising demand for high fiber resistant starch due to its health benefits and increasing applications in food manufacturing industries are some of the key factors stimulating growth in the global resistant starch market.

In this case, a decent diet plan with healthy elements stems not only from desire, but also from necessity. Resistant or modified starches are ideal as a solution because they are non-GMO and provide a healthier alternative to clean labelled meals. Branded modified starches can provide healthier enhanced ingredients and whole grain choices while maintaining traditional taste, baking quality, and texture.

While gluten-rich foods like bread, pasta, pastries, and pizza are delicious, eating them on a daily basis can cause serious health problems like stomach ache. Although there are numerous gluten-free alternatives, such as nut flours and ancient grains, resistant starch cannot compete in terms of texture and flavour.
