Starch is a general term used to describe a wider group of different polysaccharides which are composed of a larger number of glucose molecules. Starch has many uses in the food industry, since starch is one of the most important sources of carbohydrates in human nutrition. It is also used in the production of paper and adhesives, and has also many uses in the textile industry as well.

Starch can be bought in most usual grocery stores in different forms. Most commonly, corn starch can be found. If higher purity is needed, starch can probably be ordered from companies that sell and deliver chemicals that are used in the food industry.
