The fall of 2009 was a truly special season for the Emsland Group: For the first time in the history of the largest German potato starch manufacturer, it processed Tilling potatoes, which exclusively contain amylopectin starch. Not only can nutritional starches for emulsifying soups and desserts be extracted from it "“ it can also be used for paste and smooth coating for paper and thread production. "This potato is the first product in Germany developed by Tilling that achieves market...

By Kurakake, Masahiro Noguchi, Masahiro; Fujioka, Kiyofumi; Komaki, Toshiaki ABSTRACT Pasting characteristics of maize starch heat-treated with six different water-to-ethanol ratios (%wt base 0:100, 10:90, 20:80, 30:70, 40:60, 50:50) were investigated; treated starches were called EW 0, 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50, respectively. Endotherms in DSC analysis shifted to a higher temperature as the water content in water-ethanol mixture increased. The removed amount of fatty acids was much higher in...

By Zhu, Thianming Jackson, David S; Wehling, Randy L; Geera, Bhima ABSTRACT It has long been recognized that limitations exist in the analytical mediodology for amylose determination. This study was conducted to evaluate various amylose determination methods. Purified amylose and amylopectin fractions were obtained from com, rice, wheat, and potato and then mixed in proportion to make 10, 20, 30, 50, and 80% amylose content starch samples for each source. These samples, considered amylose...

By Saiah, R Sreekumar, P A; Leblanc, N; Castandet, M; Saiter, J-M ABSTRACT Wheat-flour-based agropolymers are prepared using an extrusion method. The morphology of the native and extruded wheat flours are analyzed by scanning electron micrography (SEM). During plasticization using water (9%, w/w) and glycerol (12.8%, w/w), a change in morphology of native wheat flour occurs. The structure of these materials was investigated by X-ray diffraction (XRD) with special reference to the amount of...
