Native pea starch: native Nastar feed

NastarThe native starch, produced by Cosucra Groupe Warcoing S.A. (site Provital Industrie), is obtained after separation of the fibres and decantation of the starch from the proteins.


  • Native starch is not soluble in water.
  • Native pea starch is composed of ± 20% of starch resistant to enzymatic hydrolysis in normal conditions of the human digestion.
  • Native pea starch shows a good resistance to heat and acid conditions.
  • Compared to other starches, its gelling properties are very high.

  • In piglet feed: due to its specific structure, the pea starch degradation is slower and consequently facilitates the development of the intestinal flora.
  • In coated feed: the native pea starch has high gelling properties.
