Glucose Remains Key Raw Material for Glucono-delta-lactone in China According to CCM
27 Mar 2013 • by Natalie Aster
In China, there are two different kinds of raw materials used in industrialized production of GDL at present, namely glucose and corn starch. According to the report “Production and Market of Glucono-delta-lactone in China” by Guangzhou CCM Information Science & Technology (CCM), glucose is still the most important raw material for China's GDL industry since most GDL producers are located in Southern China without sufficient supply of corn starch.
Production and Market of Glucono-delta-lactone in China
Published: February, 2013
Price: US$ 5,400.00
It is estimated that the output of GDL will increase but will not increase a lot. The reasons are listed below.
Firstly, the production cost of GDL will increase, so the price of GDL may keep at a high level, which will in turn restrict the application of GDL. Secondly, the demand for GDL from food industry will increase stably. On one hand, the application field of GDL is still very limited in China by 2012. And it is believed that this situation will not change fast in the coming years because many downstream industries are unfamiliar with GDL at present. On the other hand, as domestic bean curd industry, the largest user of GDL in China, is relatively mature, both the output of bean curd and the market share of lactone bean curd will increase slowly in the coming years.
