The chemical industry covers a very broad range: base chemicals, intermediates classified as bulk chemicals. A wide variety of consumer products can be obtained by further reaction steps. For example original starch does not directly put into use and special treatments are needed because of starch insolubility, or special chemicals and ingredients are joined. The starch whose property is altered is widely used in various fields, such as industrial (like adhesives, textile mucilage) and food fields (used as sweetener like glucose/fructose or food additives for noodle soup).
