Starch was isolated from varagu millet in 63% yield. Study of the physical properties revealed moderate swelling (about 15 at 95 degree C) and low solubility in water (55% at 95 degree C), extensive solubility in dimethyl sulphoxide ( greater than 95% in 30 h), probably indicative of easy solvent penetration due to labile and heterogeneous bonding forces within the granule. Brabender amylograms indicated little retrogradation on cooling, owing to strong bonding between the linear and branched molecules. The amylose content determined by paper chromatographic fractionation and 'blue value' was 24%.
