Starch structure is considered to have an impact on the rate of starch digestion in cereals, and is therefore an important factor in regard to optimise the starch quality in animal feed. The purpose of the study reported was to investigate the impact of amylose level and starch particle size on starch degradation in vitro. A two-step in vitro method was conducted to degrade starch enzymatically.
