Physicochemical and functional properties of sour starches from different cassava varieties
MetadataShow full item record
This article reports our investigation on the effect of cassava varieties on the physicochemical and functional properties of sour starches. There were significant differences (P < 0.05) in the ash, pH, amylose, amylopectin, starch damage, total titratable acidity (TTA), sugar, and starch content but not moisture contents of various cassava sour starches. There were no significant differences (P > 0.05) in Water Absorption Capacity (WAC), swelling power, and solubility index, while significant differences were recorded in Least Gelation Concentration (LGC) and color at 5% level and granule size at P < 0.0001 for cassava sour starches. Peak viscosity values ranged from 333.17RVU (clone 4(2) 1425) to 380.75RVU (clone TME 1). There were significant differences (P < 0.05) in pasting properties except for pasting temperature and breakdown.
