Characterization of Pinhão Starch. Part I. Extraction and Properties of the Starch Granules
MetadataShow full item record
The starch fraction of Pinhão, the seeds of Pinheiro do Paraná (Araucaria angustifolia, Bert, O. Ktze) was easily extracted and represents 21.87% of total weight. The low content of protein, fat and ash accounts for the efficiency of the extraction and purification. Pinhão starch shows an amylose level and strong anionic characteristic similar to corn starch. The round‐shaped granules are smaller than those of cassava and similarly resistent to DMSO solubilization, what suggests a very homogenous granular structure.
