Potato Starch price increases

October 15th, 2013 | Posted by jwlbrace in general update - (0 Comments)

Due to restricted availability, we are forced to increase prices on Native Potato Starch.

Modified Potato Starch prices remain static at this time, but the increased demand on the raw material will likely have an impact in the near future.

We will contact all existing customers in due course, however for more information, please contact us.

Daymer Ingredients have developed a premium version of its clean label sausage stabilising system for use in Low Fat Sausages.

This improves further on mouthfeel and moisture retention over our standard clean label fat reduction system.

Developed for manufacturers of branded and private label sausages, the stabiliser helps reduce fat levels down to  4% total weight, whilst retaining a succulent and juicy texture and mouthfeel.

Unlike some other fat mimetic & stabilising products for meat application, this system is clean label and gluten free.

  • A new blend of selected potato starches, inulin and rice flour with added dextrose for colour and flavour enhancement
  • More significantly enhances the moisture and juicy mouthfeel of low fat processed meat products
  • Can be used to reduce fat in sausages to approximately 4%
  • Suitable for gluten free applications
  • Can be used in clean label systems

From Veendam, 18th March 2013

This week, the AVEBE sites in Ter Apelkanaal and Gasselternijveen will process the last potatoes and that brings the 2012 starch-potato season to a close. This was a special year, as 2012 was the first season without subsidies for starch-potato cultivation.

Generally the season went well.

The starch percentage of the supplied potatoes is more than 20 percent, which makes it 0.8 percent higher than the long-range average. On average, the potatoes had a good storage life due to an advantageous growing season and favourable harvest and storage conditions. The tare percentage remained less than the multiannual average.

Although the yield varied from region to region, the high starch percentage delivered by the AVEBE growers produced a relatively high starch yield per hectare. Generally, in a European context there is a shortage of potatoes for the processing industry.

We now have a range of clean label, gluten free stabiliser systems for use in a wide variety of applications including:

‘Quality potatoes undiminished good ‘

AVEBE has shifted from the main production campaign and started processing late delivery potatoes. These are the potatoes from their storage facilities.

Over 80% of the potatoes are processed. The quality of the potatoes is good. The starch content is high and almost half percent above that of the main campaign, while the average tare percentage is somewhat lower. The yields are on average, but vary by region. In general there is a European shortage in processing potatoes.

 

It is expected that the campaign will end in March.

According to PotatoPro, the Danish Potato Starch manufacturer KMC,  is forecasting price increases.

At the beginning of 2013, Danish Potato Starch Manufacturer KMC offers their view on the starch supply situation in the new year:

Chief Commercial Officer Bjarne Larsen expects the global undersupply of raw materials to continue into 2013. Economic growth especially in Asia continues to increase global demand for raw materials when at the same time especially the US harvest of corn turned out to be very disappointing.

Corn starch being by far the most dominant volume starch type combined with the fact that the US is the dominant corn producer means that the disappointing US corn harvest has presented significant supply issues for starch customers around the world.

The production of European potato starch seems to be below normal this year with significant differences between the leading European producers. Production in Germany is expected to be clearly below normal, in Netherlands somewhat below normal and in Denmark slightly above normal. With European potato starch having only a relatively limited global market share, this year’s potato starch production will not change the current overall starch under-supply situation.

Consequently, starch pricing for the coming months are expected to be increasing over the coming months.

Over financial year 2011/2012 AVEBE was on average able to achieve good market prices. The good harvest brought an end to the scarcity of potato starch that marked financial year 2010/2011.

Due to continued global availability concerns over raw materials, prices on all our commodity ingredients are likely to increase in November 2012.

Our suppliers have cited a number of factors, these include:

– rising prices on US corn and wheat markets
– poor growing conditions due to adverse weather
– changes in commercial operations

All customers affected will be contacted over the next five days.
