The Amylon joint-stock company is a traditional manufacturer of quality industrial and packaged food products and ingredients. We strive to be viewed as a European business partner on the market.
The product selection of the Amylon a.s. food company includes two areas: industrial production located in Havlíčkův Brod and Polná, and the production of packaged products located in Ronov nad Sázavou.
Starch itself is present as a storage polysaccharide in most plants, however, only a few plants can be used in practice to manufacture starch, or, more precisely, to obtain it. Tubers and seeds are technologically interesting; in fact, there is a fundamental difference between the two starch types – tuber starch and starch extracted from seeds. Starch stored in tubers (such as potatoes) are found in environments with a predominance of water, which is why the grains are large, polydisperse, and allow water to enter and exit through a sort of coiled molecular network. Starch in seeds (corn, wheat), on the other hand, is stored in the opposite end of the plant, where water content does not exceed 20%. This starch is usually monodisperse, fine, and it is very difficult for water to enter the grain.
Primary crops that provide starch are corn, potatoes, and wheat.
Starches differ depending on their chemical composition, primarily the different proportions of amylose macromolecules (linear chain structure) and amylopectin (branched chain).
The industrial production of Amylon a.s. includes the production of wheat starch, gluten, starch syrup, and maltodextrin. Here, we have built upon a century of manufacturing experience while using cutting-edge European starch industry technologies. We manufacture our products in both conventional and organic qualities.
Amylon, a.s. specialises in food grade starch production and sales as well as in industrial starch production. This is why we offer the supplementary product group that includes adhesives, dextrins, and modified starches. This production is strictly separated from the production of food ingredients. The quality system is certified by the ISO 22000 standard.
Product manufacturing – packaged products, includes several manufacturing groups and is shipped to wholesalers, independent sales, and to retail chains both at home and abroad. In our manufacturing process, we use our own wheat starch and a range of ingredients from the Vysočina region, whereby the excellent quality of our products is guaranteed. The quality system is certified by the IFS standard.
Our range of products includes our famous custards, dumplings, mashed potatoes, thickeners, crepes, potato pancakes, baking powders, and many others.
In 2011, Amylon a.s. also made the decision to follow the path of ecologically-sensitive agriculture, and began the production of its line of ORGANIC and gluten-free products as well. With this step, our company brought itself closer to customers who are interested in buying fresh, delicious, and authentic foods while also respecting the natural cycles of nature.
We make efforts to listen to the needs of our customers, be inspired by their demands, and thus improve our products and communication with them.
We inspire you, you inspire us.
