Sodium octenyl succinate starch is used as an emulsifier, which adds hydrophobicity to food. It is one of the modified forms of starch. Sodium octenyl succinate starch is easily soluble in cold liquids. Sodium octenyl succinate starch is primarily used as foam builder in the food industry. It is a special form of chemically modified starch that accrues during reaction of starch with succinic acid and octanol. Sodium octenyl succinate starch is used as yolk replacer in the process of mayonnaise production. The usefulness of the sodium octenyl succinate starch as an emulsifier in low fat mayonnaises is associated with the compound’s key property of polydispersity.
Growth in the food industry is the major driver of the sodium octenyl succinate starch market, as the compound is used as food additives. Demand for functional products is rising due to the increase in consumer awareness about diet and health. The food & beverage sector is expected to stand as a pivotal domain for the global sodium octenyl succinate starch market owing to the rise in demand for chilled chocolates and dairy foods, low-fat spreads, and quality bread. The personal care industry is also predicted to add to the growth of the sodium octenyl succinate starch market. Sodium octenyl succinate starch is frequent used in cosmetics and hair styling products. Manufacturers of personal care products are looking forward to use sodium octenyl succinate starch as multi-purpose agent, thus precipitating an increase in research and development activities. Increase in research and development activities in other corresponding industries such as pharmaceuticals is anticipated to boost the global sodium octenyl succinate starch market in the near future. Sodium octenyl succinate starch is used for drying purposes, as it can decelerate the release of functional materials.
In terms of application, the sodium octenyl succinate starch market can be classified into emulsifier, stabilizer, and thickener. In the food category, the starch compound is segmented into pasteurized cream, sterilized cream, mild & concentrated butter, and infant food. Sodium octenyl succinate starch is used as an emulsifier as it can preserve a mixture of substances that are incapable of being mixed. As a stabilizer, sodium octenyl succinate starch helps maintain uniform dispersal of components in food. Sodium octenyl succinate is considered as a good thickening agent as it is viscous.
