Pulse starch can be used for texturizing, gelling, binding, thickening, coating, and film formation. Because of its versatility, it has been utilized in a variety of food applications, including pasta and noodles, confectionery, bakery, soups and sauces, and meat and poultry. It is also used as a binding agent in the production of vermicelli. Pulse starch is also a viable replacement for other starches in food and beverage applications due to its low cost and versatility. It is used in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries for its gelling, thickening, and texturizing characteristics. Pulse starch is a beneficial gel-forming agent, it is used as an alternative to gelatin in the manufacture of capsules. With the pharmaceutical industry's rapid growth and changing trends, demand for pulse starch is projected to continue to grow.
Ethanol is produced using pea starch. Corn is a key raw material in the manufacturing of ethanol. The rapid expansion of the corn ethanol sector has contributed to a significant increase in corn and ethanol prices, causing producers to shift away from corn and towards inexpensive substitutes such as pea starch, which in turn propel the demand for the latter. The production of ethanol from pea starch increases fermentation rates, allowing ethanol producers to increase annual production capacity while decreasing capital costs by increasing the number of fermentations per year.
Despite the fact that pulse ingredients are becoming increasingly important in the food industry, there remains a strong need to modify their flavor. Chickpea flour has a strong flavor and can be avoided when making delicate dishes like sugar cookies or biscotti. Pea flour, on the other hand, does not impart flavor to baked goods. Off-flavor in pulses is both inherent and developed throughout harvesting, processing, and preservation. The off-flavor in certain kinds of pulse ingredients is caused by compounds such as alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, acids, and sulphur derivatives. Consumer perception of the bitter taste of pulses is projected to hinder the expansion of the pulse ingredient market.
