Pea starch

Our experience makes it possible to find the best solution

Pea starch is produced from dried peas and is rich of amylose. A pea consists of 40% starch. The other starch is a white powder and is neutral in taste and color. It is useful as a gelatin substitute for soups, desserts and many other products. Dinnissen has a lot of experience working with pea starch.

This experience helps us to find and produce innovative solutions for your production process. Our specialists are able to work with various challenging powder. We want to share our knowledge with all of our costumers to help them to find the right solution.

Pea starch processing equipment

Processing lines specially aimed at pea starch

Over the years, we innovated a lot of machines in the food-industry, specially designed for pea starch. For example our Pegasus Mixer. This machine can be completely tailor-made to comply with the specifically guidelines in the food-industry. The fact that multiple steps, like mixing and accurate moistening can be done in just one single step, makes the machine truly the best option for every producer working with pea starch.

Another impressive machine is the hammer mill, this machine has a very short change time by automatic sieve change which ensures a higher up time / capacity.

Below are some examples of machines and completing processing lines specially designed for pea starch.
