Starch is a natural, renewable, biodegradable polysaccharide produced by many plants as a storage polymer. It usually has two major components and appears as a mixture of two glucosidic macromolecules very different in structure and properties: largely linear amylose of molecular weight between one thousand and one million, consisting of R-(1f4)-linked D-glucose, and amylopectin, having the same backbone as amylose but with a myriad of R-(1f6)-linked branch points. The most commercially… Expand
