Abstract :
The structural changes of cassava starch granules were studied by scanning electron microscope (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), and differential scanning calorimeter after starch granules were hydrolyzed by a mixture of α-amylase and glucoamylase. The surface of starch granules was porous after hydrolysis treatment. Enzymatic erosion occurred mainly at the surface for cassava starch. The BET-specific surface area of hydrolyzed cassava starch improved 10.7 times compared with that of native starch. The powder XRD intensity of hydrolyzed starch was higher than that of native starch. The crystallinity in the hydrolyzed cassava starch increased due to hydrolysis. Compound enzymes could hydrolyze cassava starch granules at sub-gelatinization temperature, and could produce porous starch.
