  • Numerous, well-developed spherulites exhibiting strong birefringence were formed in aqueous dispersions of mung bean and potato starch rapidly quenched (150 °C/min) from 180 °C. Ordinary maize starch yielded less numerous, less well-developed, coarse spherulites than did mung bean and potato starch. Acid-modified maize starch yielded large numbers of very round spherulites displaying moderately strong birefringence. Wheat, tapioca and arrowroot starches formed few or very poorly developed… CONTINUE READING
