Starchy and non-starchy carbohydrates of samai, sanwa and panivaragu have been isolated and characterized. Starch isolated exhibited single stage swelling, moderated solubility in water, but a very high solubility in DMSO, and non-ionic character similar to several starches from Leguminoaseae. Treatment with milk alkali resulted in the separation of big-hexagonal, and small-spherical granules. Considerable retrogradation of the linear amylose fraction was observed. Hemicellulose A was shown to be a non-cellulosic glucan, whereas hemicellulose B was composed of hexoses, pentoses and uronic acids in varying proportions. The alkali-insoluble residues were exclusively composed of glucose and thus constituted the fibre fraction.
