Abstract
The rheological properties of starch extracted from ten different species of tropical tuber crops were examined using a Bohlin rheometer. Suspensions with starch

concentrations of 3, 4 and 5% were gelatinised at 757C and fed into the rheometer cup. A C 25 measuring system was used and the heating rate was 1.57C/min,

heating schedule 75-957C, holding at 957C for 600 s, cooling to 357C at 1.57C/min, holding for 3600 s. For strain sweep tests, the range of strain used was 0-0.2% and

the temperature of test was 357C. The data on viscosity, storage modulus (G0) and phase angle were obtained from the rheograms. The results indicated variability in

the various properties of the different starches. However the... (More)

the temperature of test was 357C. The data on viscosity, storage modulus (G0) and phase angle were obtained from the rheograms. The results indicated variability in

the various properties of the different starches. However the results did not follow a

definite trend. The viscosity of Colocasia starch was low while Canna edulis and

yam starches had high viscosities. The storage modulus was also highest for Canna

starch (70-93 Pa) for 5% and gel strength was comparatively high for Canna edulis,

Dioscorea esculenta and D. rotundata starches. The phase angle values followed

the pattern of G0 and all the starch pastes were found to be elastic in nature at

higher concentration. The wide variability in rheological properties can be useful in

different applications of tuber starches. (Less)
