Tapioca Starch for Charcoal Production

When it comes to producing charcoal briquettes, tapioca starch has proven to be an ideal binder. With its unique properties, tapioca starch offers numerous advantages, making it an alternative to other binders, such as corn starch. One particularly useful form of tapioca starch for this purpose is Pregelatinized tapioca starch.

Pregelatinized tapioca starch goes through a specific process that modifies its properties, enhancing its binding capabilities even further. During this process, the starch is heated and moisture is added, causing it to undergo gelatinization. The resultant pregelatinized tapioca starch possesses unique characteristics that make it highly effective as a binder for charcoal briquettes.
