Starches were isolated from popped bajra (Pearl millet), ragi (Finger millet) and Navane (Foxtail millet). Popping resulted in complete loss of birefringence characteristics of starch granules, increased solubility in dimethyl sulphoxide, low cold paste and setback viscosity and lower relative viscosity in KOH. Popped starches in comparison to native starches exhibited higher susceptibility to in vitro enzymic (pancreatin) digestibility. greater than 50% of popped pearl and finger millet starches was hydrolysed by pancreatic alpha-amylose within 120 min, while popped foxtail millet starch required 180 min for greater than 50% hydrolysis.
