Market Report Description

The Latin America, Middle East and Africa Maize Flour Market would witness market growth of 6.9% CAGR during the forecast period (2022-2028).

Zein and wheat gliadins are both prolamins, hence their characteristics are more similar. Zein's Tg was calculated to be 139°C, which is lower than the Tg for wheat proteins. Water plasticizes zein, causing a Tg drop of 80°Cover a moisture content of 0-6%. Zein flows as entangled polymers at temperatures up to 120 °C when it contains 15% moisture.

It undergoes a cross-linking process similar to thermosetting in wheat proteins between 122 and 160 °C. Moisture affects these transitions' precise temperatures. Thus, for instance, the improved network was started at 96°C with 20% moisture. Consumers' primary quality criteria for maize flour goods, like cornflakes, include their crispiness. They are the physical outcome of many fractures that happened during mastication.

A recent accurate instrumental evaluation showed that these subjective judgments of sharpness are closely related to acoustical and mechanical qualities. The behavior of the entire product, corn flakes, and the creation of model products from maize components are two ways that might be used to examine these aspects of crispy, enlarged products at various levels. Both products can be thought of as large-particle solid foams with cell walls and bubbles made of dense material that, on a microscopic scale, is a mixture of different bio polymeric phases.

The majority of the time, maize is used to produce regionally specific foods throughout Latin America and Africa. In Africa, maize is the most widely consumed food item as well as the most widely consumed grain. This pattern is also present in Latin America. The two regions that continue to consume the most maize, Africa and Latin America, have maintained their continuous consumption of traditional foods. Due to the imbalance between the supply and demand for maize, substantial volumes of grain are also imported from other regions.
