Abstract

The higher cost of starch, almost equal to that of cane sugar in International market, necessitates the search for other cheaper raw materials for the production of high fructose syrup at economic cost in countries like India. The direct utilization of cassava chips seems to offer advantages and hence its feasibility was investigated. The comparative economics showed that the gain in lower expenses on cassava chips as compared to cassava starch are completely upset by the higher capital investment on plant and machineries as well as higher expenses on activated carbon and steam. In addition, a number of operational difficulties were encountered with the use of cassava chips. Against the total capital investment of 597.940 and 436.240 US $ for production of 10 t high fructose syrup/d, the cost of production per kg works out to be US $ 0.51 and 0.46, respectively, based on cassava chips and cassava starch. The studies establish that the direct utilization of cassava chips for the production of high fructose syrup does not offer any economic advantage.
