Starch was isolated from banana pseudostem and its properties were compared with those of potato, corn and tapioca. The starch granules are irregular in shape and are bigger in size, than those of the fruit starch. At 60 degree C, the granules start to swell, gradually increase in size, attain their max. size at 75 degree C and do not rupture even after heating to 100 degree C. The intrinsic viscosity of the starch (2.05) is similar to that of potato starch (2.00). The amylose content of the starch compares well with that of banana fruit and potato (tuber) starch (21%). In general, banana pseudostem starch resembles potato starch.
