WAXY TAPIOCA STARCH, an important milestone in the starch industry sms-underline

The great pride of SMS for being the World’s First Waxy Tapioca starch manufacturer began when the new hybrid tapioca seeds arrived in Thailand in 2009.  The new waxy tapioca varieties were successfully developed for the first time under co-operation of Thai Tapioca Development Institute (TTDI), Colombia’s Centre International de Agricultura Tropical (CIAT), and Kasetsart University.  SMS took part in scaling up the viable varieties to industrial scale for evaluation and selection of the best variety in the joint development.  In 2016, SMS began to commercialize waxy tapioca starch products.


The new waxy tapioca variety is amylose-free or 100% of amylopectin which allows for the new dimension of applications in various industries.  The unique and versatile attributes of waxy tapioca starch are solutions to numerous opportunities in the world market.
