"Fast - changing dynamics of the cassava markets with looming shortage and spreading of disease"
It is a challenging time for cassava as prices have developed their own dynamics detached from world market fundamentals due to the critical shortage of roots and the rapid growth of mosaic disease detected largely in eastern Cambodia and southern Vietnam.
The panel of authorities from the top 3 producing in Asia will share on the impact of CMD (cassava mosaic disease) and how this might affect supply going forward.
The leading issue in the minds of processors is what is the threat of CMD on the supply outlook in the next 6-9 months? Will prices remain high? Will they switch to corn or rice?
Ingredion investing $60 million in Asia-Pacific
Ingredion builds its on-trend rice ingredient business and continues to make further investments in Asia Earlier this year, the company expanded its modified and clean label specialty starch capabilities in tapioca, waxy corn and rice in the region.
Despite the high prices, demand for cassava-based products is increasing as consumption patterns change. New global markets are developing with growing demand for ‘clean label’ and differentiated products such as gluten-free or GMO-free. Cassava starch has always had superior functional properties in many applications sought after by food processors and manufacturers.
As leading producer, Thailand starch producers are upgrading their facilities, investing in higher value added cassava starch and derivatives and also investing in smart farming concepts to improve yields.

Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) has collaborated with Vedan International to start a new line of speciality tapioca starches and tapioca maltodextrin ingredients.
This new line of starches can be used by food manufacturers to enhance product stability by binding water in foods while also improving and viscosity and mouthfeel. Some of the food products that can use these starches are dressings, sauces, bakery fillings, ice cream, yogurt, soups, bakery, beverages, meat and dry sausages. Tapioca has a neutral taste that allows its use in a wide range of applications.
The tapioca starches and tapioca maltodextrin ingredients are non-GMO. In addition, maltodextrin is also available in an organic version.
ADM is committed to expand it starch-based ingredients - particularly the plant-based varieties that provide cleaner label options.
More about tapioca starches will be discussed at CMT's 8th StarchWorld Asia on 23-24 January, 2019 in Bangkok.
