Daesang puts love and sincerity to think of the health of family.
The starch and sweetener ingredient research segment focuses
on the development of health-oriented functional food ingredient
such as resistant starch, water-soluble dietary fiber, allulose
and others along with starch for various foods which gives
appropriate properties for processed food that has natural
ingredients of corns, tapioca and more.Moreover, active research
activities are under process for various product development and
solution provision in paper, cardboard, cosmetics, adhesives,
construction and other areas where are industrial usages of starch.
Recently, Daesang wides its research area to the technology
development to extract functional special sweetener from Biomass,
the non-eatable resource.
By developing strains for industrial use and obtaining world-class
fermentation and purification technology, bio ingredients research
has dramatically improved productivity when it comes to nucleic acids
and amino acids like glutamic acid, lysine, phenylalanine, arginine,
glutamine, histidine, etc. Continued research on functional amino acids
has also allowed Daesang to expand its range of products and solidify
its lead as an amino acid-specialized company. Furthermore,
it commercialized chlorella, plant-derived DHA, and other ingredients for
the first time in Korea using independently developed microalgae culturing
technology. Recently, Daesang is stepping up efforts to develop functional
ingredients from microalgae.
