Pasting properties of heat-moisture treated canna starches using different plasticizers during treatment.

Different plasticizers (propanol, propylene glycol, glycerol, erythritol, xylitol and sorbitol) were used for plasticizing canna starch during heat-moisture treatment (HMT). Pasting properties of the modified starches were determined and compared with those of native starch and of HMT starch using water as a plasticizer. Canna starch was soaked in 5% (w/w… CONTINUE READING
