The influences of starch concentration and test conditions on the shear-thickening behavior of waxy maize starch (WMS) dispersions were investigated. During steady shear tests, both the concentration of WMS and test temperature influenced the shear thickening behavior of the WMS dispersions significantly. The critical shear rate for shear thickening was increased with the increasing of temperature and the decreasing of WMS concentration. No effect of gap size on the shear thickening of the WMS dispersions was observed when a parallel plate geometry was used for the theological measurements. The dynamic strain thickening property of the samples was also studied through dynamic shear tests. In dynamic frequency sweeps, the critical frequency for strain thickening decreased with the increasing of the strain amplitude (gamma(o)). In dynamic strain tests, the critical strain of the WMS dispersions was an inverse function of the WMS concentration when the WMS concentration was beyond 4.0 wt.%.

Anti-thixotropic properties of waxy maize starch dispersions with different pasting conditions
Wang, Bao; Li, Dong; Wang, Li-Jun; Özkan, Necati (2010-03-17)
The effects of pasting conditions, testing temperature, and shear rate on the anti-thixotropy of waxy maize starch (WMS) dispersions were investigated in this study. Activation energy and viscoelastic properties of the WMS dispersions were also determined to understand the anti-thixotropy of these dispersions. The WMS dispersions (5.0 wt.%) displayed both thixotropic and anti-thixotropic properties in loop and shear recovery tests, depending on pasting conditions and testing temperature. The standard anti-t...
Influences of Microemulsion Cross-linking Reaction and Ball-milling on Particle Size Characteristics of Potato and Maize Starches

In this study, microemulsion cross-linking treatment was used on food grade potato and maize starches for preparing micro starch particles. Laser diffraction technique was introduced to measure the particle size characteristics, including the median particle diameter (d (50)), surface area mean diameter D [3, 2], volume mean diameter D [4, 3] and specific surface area of micro potato and maize starch particles. The volume distributions and number distributions were also analyzed using Mastersizer 2000 Softw...
Rheological properties of waxy maize starch and xanthan gum mixtures in the presence of sucrose

Rheological properties of 5% (w/w) waxy maize starch (WMS)/xanthan gum (XG) mixed pastes (mixing ratios: 10/0, 9.5/0.5, 9/1) in the presence of sucrose (0%, 15%, and 30%) were studied. The 5% WMS paste displayed strong anti-thixotropic behavior based on the heating method adopted (heating in water bath for 40 min with mixing at 200 rpm). The addition of XG could accelerate the formation of new structure of the WMS/XG mixed pastes under shear conditions, and XG could also decrease the in-shear recoveries of ...
Rheological properties of dilute aqueous solutions of cassava starch

The effects of starch concentration on the rheological properties of dilute aqueous solutions of cassava starch were investigated. Cassava starch suspensions at different starch concentrations (0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8, and 1.0 wt. %) were heated at 90 degrees C for 1 h and then rapidly cooled to 25 degrees C. The apparent viscosities of starch solutions were measured as a function of starch concentration. The cassava starch solution with a concentration of 0.2% showed Newtonian behavior, and as the concentration...

Both small amplitude oscillatory and steady shear measurements were carried out at 25 degrees C, 50 degrees C, and 75 degrees C in order to determine the theological properties of the mixtures of flaxseed gum (0.1-0.5%) and native maize starch (3%). It was found that the apparent viscosities of the samples increased with the increasing of flaxseed gum concentration. The apparent viscosities of the samples were fitted well to the power law model (the values of R-2 were between 0.954 and 0.999). The consisten...
