The effects of native sweet potato starch (NSPS) and sweet potato starch modified by acetylation (MSPS) on dynamic rheological properties of surimi sols were investigated by small-deformation oscillatory measurements. Dynamic frequency sweeps of surimi sols at $10^{\circ}C$ showed that the addition of NSPS and MSPS resulted in a reduction of storage modulus (G') and loss modulus (G"). The tan $\delta$ values (ratio of G"/ G') of all samples were in the range of $0.15{\sim}0.54$ over a wide range of frequency, indicating that all surimi sols are more elastic than viscous. The characteristic G' thermograms of surimi sols during heating from 10 to $90^{\circ}C$ were influenced by the addition of starch. The tan $\delta$ values of all samples were maintained nearly constant above $45^{\circ}C$, showing that the G' is proportional to the G" irrespective of starch effects.
