Unusually small-sized (2-2.5 mum) starch granules were isolated from black pepper (Piper nigrum) in 25-38% yield. The granules had an amylose content of 18%, were non-ionic showed low solubility and low swelling power in water but high solubility in DMSO (dimethyl sulphoxide). The amylogram peak viscosity of the starch was approx. 530 Brabender Units (B.U.) with very little set back (approx. 550 B.U.) on cooling, indicating a stable linear molecule very strongly associated with amylopectin. X-ray diffraction pattern revealed the starch granules to be of A-type. In vitro digestibility test showed low amylolytic attack: 30% reducing sugar (maltose) was released in 100 min by salivary alpha-amylase, 10.5% glucose in 100 h by glucoamylase.
