AMYLOSE/AMYLOPECTIN SIMPLE DETERMINATION IN ACID HYDROLYZED TAPIOCA STARCH
(Sociedad Chilena de Química, 2008)
Blends of cross-linked high amylose starch/pectin loaded with diclofenac
Polymers blends represent an important approach to obtain materials with modulated properties to reach different and desired properties in designing drug delivery systems in order to fulfill therapeutic needs. The aim of ...
Insights into the swelling process and drug release mechanisms from cross-linked pectin/high amylose starch matrices
Cross-linked pectin/high amylose mixtures were evaluated as a new excipient for matrix tablets formulations, since the mixing of polymers and cross-linking reaction represent rational tools to reach materials with modulated ...
Changes of starch composition by postflowering environmental conditions in kernels of maize hybrids with different endosperm hardness
(Elsevier Science, 2017-05)
Starch composition of maize grains is of great importance when used in animal feed and many processing industries. Maize production involves hybrids with different kernel composition and hardness, sown at areas that range ...
In vivo degradation of banana starch: Structural characterization of the degradation process
(ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2010)
This work reports the first ultrastructural investigation into the degradation process that starch granules isolated from bananas (cv. Nanicao) undergo during ripening. Starch granules from green bananas had a smooth ...
Genotypic and environmental effects on starch properties of Argentinean wheat flours
(Wiley VCH Verlag, 2016-11)
The aim of this study was to determine the influence of different environments and genotypes on starch characteristics and properties of Argentinean wheat flours. Amylose content, starch granule size distribution, thermal ...
Physical-chemical and functional properties of maca root starch (Lepidium meyenii Walpers)
(ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2009)
The starch of maca (Lepidium meyenii Walpers) presented oval and irregular morphology, with granule size between 7.4 and 14.9 mu m in length and 5.8 and 9.3 mu m in diameter. The isolated starch showed the following features: ...
Chemical composition and thermal properties of Chilean Araucaria araucana starch
Starch isolated from Chilean Araucaria araucana seed was characterized as a follow-up on a previous study. The apparent amylose (AMM) content determined by potentiometric titration was 28%. The chain length distribution ...
