Thermal, rheological, and structural behaviors of natural and modified cassava starch granules, with sodium hypochlorite solutions
The use of chemically modified starches is widely accepted in various industries, with several applications. In this research, natural cassava starch granules were treated with standard sodium hypochlorite solution at 0.8, ...
Influence of Different Substrates on the Production of a Mutant Thermostable Glucoamylase in Submerged Fermentation
(Humana Press Inc, 2011-01-01)
Three mutations, Ser54 -> Pro, Thr314 -> Ala, and His415 -> Tyr, were identified in Aspergillus awamori glucoamylase gene expressed by Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The mutant glucoamylase (GA) was substantially more thermostable ...
Thermoanalytical study of cassava starch native and treated with hydrogen peroxide
Starch is one of the most important sources of reserve of carbohydrate in plants and the main source in the human diet due to its abundance in the nature. There no other food ingredient that can be compared with starch in ...
Prediction of cassava starch edible film properties by chemometric analysis of infrared spectra
(Taylor & Francis Inc, 2005-01-01)
Cassava starch has been shown to make transparent and colorless flexible films without any previous chemical treatment. The functional properties of edible films are influenced by starch properties, including chain ...

(In: BRAZILIAN CONFERENCE ON RHEOLOGY, 5., 2010, Rio de Janeiro. Proceedings... Rio de Janeiro: Associação Brasileira de Engenharia e Ciências Mecânicas, 2010., 2010)
Cassava bagasse cellulose nanofibrils reinforced thermoplastic cassava starch
(ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2009)
Cellulose cassava bagasse nanofibrils (CBN) were directly extracted from a by-product of the cassava starch (CS) industry, viz. the cassava bagasse (CB), The morphological structure of the ensuing nanoparticles was ...
