Surface activity of commercial food grade modified starches



Surface activity of commercial food grade modified starches



Colloids and Surfaces. B Biointerfaces 60(2): 187-194



An attempt to quantitative evaluation of the functionality of food grade chemically modified starches in the emulsion systems by estimation of their surface activity as well as the capability of thickening food products was the main purpose of this present work. It was stated that chemically modified starches reveal higher surface activity at air/water and toluene/water interfaces in comparison to the native starch. The increase of the degree of substitution of polar carboxyl groups as well as rather non-polar acetyl ones results in an enhance of surface activity. Starch sodium octenylsuccinate stands out from other investigated starches, in its excellent capability of lowering surface and interfacial tension. Cross-linked starches reveal excellent stabilisation activity at a pH range of 5.5-7.0 but their surface activity is lower than those of other modified starches. Acetylated starch as well as starch sodium octenylsuccinate reveal satisfactory thickening capability up to pH 4.5 and moreover their surface activity (especially of E 1450) allows us to recommend them as functional constituents of food emulsions. Low thickening capability of oxidised starches rather excluded these derivatives from the group of potential functional additives for food emulsions.
