|Title:||Physico-chemical, morphological, and pasting properties of Pine nut (Araucaria angustifolia) starch oxidized with different levels of sodium hypochlorite|
|Author:||de Conto, LC|
|Abstract:||The objective of this work was to study the effect of process temperature and active chlorine concentration on the main properties of Pine nut starch (PN). Samples of PN were oxidized with sodium hypochlorite at concentrations varying from 0.5 to 4.0 g active chlorine/100 g starch, at temperatures varying from 20 to 45 degrees C according to a central composite rotational design, analyzing the results using response surface methodology. The concentration of active chlorine had an effect on the WSI, the quantity of carboxyl and carbonyl groups, the AM content and the percentage of light transmittance (650 nm) of the PN. The effect of temperature was observed on the water solubility index, the quantity of carbonyl groups and the percentage of light transmittance (650 nm) of the PN. Oxidation was more intense in the starch treated with 3.5% active chlorine.|
