Project Information Profile at a Glance
  • The process for making the sweetener high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) out of corn was developed in the 1970s. Use of HFCS grew rapidly, from less than three million short tons in 1980 to almost 8 million short tons in 1995. During the late 1990s, use of sugar actually declined as it was eclipsed by HFCS. Today Americans consume more HFCS than sugar.
  • High-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is produced by processing corn starch to yield glucose, and then processing the glucose to produce a high percentage of fructose. It all sounds rather simple—white cornstarch is turned into crystal clear syrup. However, the process is actually very complicated. Three different enzymes are needed to break down cornstarch, which is composed of chains of glucose molecules of almost infinite length, into the simple sugars glucose and fructose.
  • Today HFCS is used to sweeten jams, condiments like ketchup, and soft drinks. It is also a favorite ingredient in many so-called health foods. Four companies control 85 percent of the $2.6 billion business—Archer Daniels Midland, Cargill, Staley Manufacturing Co. and CPC International
  • Currently, the HFC syrups are manufactured and used in several countries throughout the world. The product has an immense demand in the developing countries.
  • The product is also gaining popularity in the Indian market. The various industries, such as Soft Drink, Confectionary, and other fruit processing units are growing at a rapid pace. As HFC syrup has a derived demand in the market, thus there is huge market potential for the product.
  • After HFS is reasonably established in the market, its demand is expected to grow to 300,000 tonnes mark by the year 2006-07.
  • The major suppliers of the equipment include German based companies
  • Some of them are indigenously available in India
  • Estimated Capacity is 20,000 TPA per unit and Estimated Cost is INR 150 million (USD 3.3 million) per unit
