Abstract

The isolation and physicochemical properties of starches and their fractions from 3 var. of finger millet ('ragi') and 1 of foxtail millet were studied. Tabulated results and photomicrographs showed that starches from all the millets exhibited single stage swelling and low solubility. Brabender viscosites decreased considerably during cooking. Purna starch tended to retrograde extensively during cooking. Native starches were susceptible to glucoamylase attack. Amylose contents were 15.5-17.5%. Successive leaching of starches with water and alkali yielded different amylose components or varying mol. wt. and beta-amylolysis limit, suggesting heterogeneity of total amyloses.
