According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Resistant Starch Market is accounted for $10.03 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $17.31 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 8.1% during the forecast period. Resistant starch is a natural fiber that is not absorbed or broken down, converted to fatty acids by intestinal bacteria. The resistant starch is not fully absorbed from the small intestine but is transferred to the large intestine to be fermented by bacteria and create short-chain fatty acids, which are believed to benefit the body in various ways. The resistant starch helps the human body by reducing fat and cholesterol in the blood and by limiting the production of new fat cells, facilitates digestion and insulin sensitivity, keeps the appetite stable helps the body's rehydration process, and improves immunity. Resistant starch is also useful in preventing diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and heart disease, and in enhancing the immune system. The resistant starch includes foods rich in fiber, such as legumes and grains, but it also contains food additives and foods rich in carbohydrates.

Market Dynamics:


Rising consumer’s inclination towards healthy food

Increasing consumers’ inclination towards healthy food is driving the market which replaces the slow-digesting starch with resistant starch that works as dietary fibers. Resistant starch is increasingly gaining the interest of scientists, industry players, and consumers on account of its use as dietary fibers and various health advantages, which is expected to boost the product requirement over the forecast period.


Lack of awareness in the developing countries

Lack of consumer awareness, particularly in underdeveloped countries may act as a restraint for the resistant starch industry growth. Consumers’ awareness of the benefits of the intake of low carbohydrate foods is increasing day by day. Carbohydrate-rich foods are generally blamed for causing/worsening diabetes and weight gain. However, the presence of resistant starch in carbohydrate-rich foods makes them somewhat suitable for health-conscious persons. Resistant starch is of utmost importance to nutritionists and food processors.


Increasing consumption of bakery products

In terms of applications, the resistant starch market is segregated into dairy products, bakery products, sugar confections, and convenience foods. Among these, bakery products shall witness significant growth owing to the growing requirement of natural, healthy, gluten-free bakery products around the world. Bakery products include cookies, pies, bread, rolls, muffins, and pastries are usually prepared from flour or meal derived from some form of grain. Bread is likely to become the most important type of bakery product in the coming years due to its high nutritional value and prevalence as a staple food around the world. Other than bakery products, dairy products are likely to witness strong growth during the forecast period. This growth is highly associated with the rising urban population, value associated with products, and new product development by key players in the business.


Health risks associated with resistant starch dietary fiber

Dietary starches can make quite specific contributions to health and are important sources of energy for most people. For both its potential health benefits and functional properties, resistant starch has received much attention. It can positively influence the functioning of the digestive tract, the microbial flora, the blood cholesterol level, glycemic index and assist in the control of diabetes. Apart from the potential health benefits of resistant starch, another positive advantage is its lower impact on the sensory properties of food compared with traditional sources of fiber, like whole grains, bran, or other prebiotics. The low water-holding capacity, increased viscosity, gel formation, and high water-binding capacity make it useful in a variety of foods. This chapter was intended to discuss different resistant starch types, food sources, potential health benefits, and food applications of resistant starch.

The grains segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The grains segment is growing at the highest CAGR in the market. Grains are a microsphere of a seed plant that is cropped for human consumption. They are generally subdivided into legumes and cereals. Grain products such as sorghum, rice, lentils, peas, and beans are widely used for producing resistant starch.

Region with largest share:

The Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest share in the market due to it being the main hub of the largest grain and food products, an important factor for the highest manufacturing capacity. Modified starch makes the most of the ready-made or packed convenience food, which is seen to account for the highest consumption from Asia Pacific countries like China, Japan, and South Korea.

Region with highest CAGR:

The Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The increase in income and spending capacity of the middle-class population to afford healthy and dietary food are driving the market. For example, China’s food starch industry is growing rapidly specifically due to the increasing consumption of convenience food.

Key players in the market:

Some of the key players profiled in the Resistant Starch Market include Arcadia Biosciences, Archer Daniels Midland, Cargill Foods, Cerestar Inc, General Starch Limited, IMCD, Lodaat Pharma, Megazyme, MGP Ingredients, Natl. Starch and Chemical Co, Opta Food Ingredients Inc, Penford Corporation, Stawi Foods and Fruits Limited, Tate & Lyle Plc, Western Polymer, and Ingredion Incorporated.

Key developments:

In January 2020: with a focus on sports nutrition and weight management, Chicago-based Lodaat Pharma launched potato prebiotic-resistant starch. The ingredient has been specially developed to increase the production of butyrate in the large intestine. The company targets food and beverage brands with its ingredient PotatoDaat, which contains 78% weight-resistant starch.

In December 2019: Archer Daniels Midland Company will expand its starch portfolio through a partnership with IMCD in Canada, which is a leading distributor of specialty chemicals and food ingredients, which will take effect immediately. ADM texture solutions offered products like tapioca starch, corn starch, and tapioca maltodextrin to buyers in the Canadian market, in addition to a range of other ADM solutions.

In March 2019: Ingredion Incorporated, one of the world's leading providers of ingredient solutions for various industries, announced that it had acquired the business of Western Polymer, a privately held company in the United States, whose headquarters is located in Moses Lake, Washington. Western Polymer produces modified and native potato starches for food and industrial applications and also sells modified tapioca starch for industrial applications.
