Potato starch (35-40% slurry) was (i) acid modified with hydrochloric acid (0.5N , 50 degree C, up to 4.5 h) and (ii) oxidized using sodium hypochlorite (7.5 to 70 mg Cl2/g starch, 38 degree C, 2.5 h). Starch degradation over the treatment range was followed by: the number average mol. wt. (Mn), alkali fluidity number (AFN), iodine binding capacity (IBC), ash and sodium content of the resultant acid modified starch; and carboxyl content, Mn, AFN, ash and sodium content of oxidized starch. Results, shown graphically and in tables, revealed a sharp decrease in Mn during early stages of acidification, followed by much slower decrease, decrease in IBC and a reverse trend in AFN, and reduction of ash content to 10% of initial value. Upon neutralization, the starch had a higher Mn, lower AFN and higher IBC and reduced susceptibility to beta-amylase. Washing the unmodified starch with very dilute acid produced similar but less drastic degradative effects, the values being restored almost to original levels by neutralization, suggesting molecular aggregation of depolymerized fractions by the introduction of cations. Oxidation led to a similar decrease in Mn, increase in AFN, carboxyl and ash content.
