Amylomaize (Hylon VII) starch-fatty acid (capric, myristic, palmitic, stearic, oleic) complexes prepared at 30, 50 or 70°C were studied using XRD, DSC, SEM, TGA and FTIR techniques. XRD diffractograms displayed the typical V-form of complexed amylose regardless the temperature of preparing the complexes. The degree of crystallinity of the complexes(More)
Thirty children (20 girls and 10 boys, aged 6-16 years) with primary peptic ulcers, matched in paris for age, sex and socio-economic standard to a group of 30 ulcer-free controls, were submitted to a structured psychiatric interview, a structured 'present psychiatric state' examination and to personality and intelligence tests. With one exception all(More)
Amylose forms complexes with fatty acids under certain conditions, these complexes affect the functional properties of foods and could be potentially used as delivery systems of essential fatty acids in the human organism. This work uses dynamic and equilibrium interfacial tension measurements in order to investigate these complexes. First, the interfacial(More)
Complexes of amylose with fatty acids varying in carbon chain length and degree of unsaturation were prepared at 30, 50 or 70°C by dissolving amylose in 0.1N KOH and mixing with fatty acid potassium soap solution. The complexes were obtained in solid form as precipitates after neutralization. SEM microscopy revealed that the morphology of the complexes was(More)
Twenty-five children with radiologically confirmed primary peptic ulcers were investigated. All patients suffered from duodenal ulcer and there was an unexpected female preponderance. The frequency of introverted personalities was greater in the patients than in the controls. Five patients suffered from psychiatric disorders, three had histories of suicidal(More)
