Starches

In the food industries, corn starch is used primarily as a thickener or binder in many processed foods, and is also sold to packers for consumer consumption. In non-food industries, starches are used as strengthening and finishing components in paper production, and in the production of high-quality adhesives for shipping containers, display boards and other corrugated products. The textile industry uses starch to reduce friction in the weaving process and to improve a fabric’s feel and appearance.


Sweeteners

Sweeteners generated in the corn-refining process are used as sugar substitutes and other applications. The Company produces high fructose corn syrup and glucose corn syrups for soft drinks, candy and baking. High maltose corn syrup for beer, confections and canned foods are made, as well as, maltodextrins for dry food mixes, sports drinks, baked goods and confections. Dextrose is manufactured for confections, baked goods, dry mixes, intravenous injections and other pharmaceutical applications, vitamins, amino acids and alcohols.

By-products

Refined corn oil is sold to packers of cooking oil and producers of margarine, salad dressings, shortening, mayonnaise and other foods. Corn gluten feed and corn gluten meal are used as animal feed.
