Glucose production process

Raw Materials

The raw materials required for the plant include maize starch, activated carbon, soda-ash, HCL acid, and water.
  • Maize Starch
  • Activated Carbon
  • Soda-ash
  • HCl Acid
  • Water
  • Packaging Material
  • Electricity
  • Fuel Oil
  • Process and Potable Water

Slurry of starch of about 60 % water is prepared and treated with HCL acid in a converter where the reaction takes over at 150 0C and maintained for 15 minutes. The treated slurry is then transferred to wooden vats where it is neutralized with soda-ash solution. Then it is filtered and further refined by activated carbon. Then it passes through a vacuum evaporator where it gets the required concentration. After being cooled the liquor is packed ready for shopping
Alternatively, maltose syrup and high-DE glucose syrups can be produced by two-stage acid/enzyme or enzyme/enzyme saccharification process.
