Ch002 36 starch. Correspondingly, the increase of SME was less pronounced with high amylose starches and proved to be reduced even further in cases of hydroxypropylated types. , experiments showed that destructurization produced significant shifts to low molecular fractions. Predominantly the peaks of amylopectin components were reduced whereas amylose fractions remained nearly unchanged. The described changes were well correlated with screw rotation rate or SME, respectively. In blending TPS produced from hydroxypropylated high amylose corn starch with short natural cellulosefibers(ligneous type: Cellunier F; cotton type: Temming 500) its portion increased SME.

The sensitivity of granulated starch extrudates to water was slightly reduced as soon as these extrudates were reinforced with rather small amounts of cellulose (2 to 7%). However, this effect reversed with further addition significantly beyond concentrations mentioned previously, for instance 15% (Figure 9). The 15% portion of ligneous cellulose (Cellunier F) produced a water sensitivity exceeding respective characteristics of TPS. This pattern could be found in measurements of cold water solubility, likewise, where samples were soaked in water during a period of 20 hr (Figure 10).
