  • The use of high amylose maize varieties significantly affected the alkaline-cooking process and characteristics of alkaline-processed food products, such as masa and tortilla chips. High amylose maize varieties had softer endosperm textures with move tightly attached pericarps than normal maize. Masa prepared from high amylose mutant maize was less cohesive than that of normal maize due to insufficient dispersion of amylopectin and excessive retrogradation of starches. Tortilla chips prepared from amylose-extender dull (ae du), amylomaize V, and Ⅶ had slightly increased oil absorption, while tortilla chips from dull (du) and amylose-extender sugary-2 (ae su-2) had oil contents similar to that of control chips. Increased oil absorption of the tortilla chips was due to their increased surface area. Tortilla chips produced from high amylose mutant maize had darker color than control chips, presumably due to the pigmented pericarp tissues, higher levels of reducing sugars, and phenolic compounds present in the kernel.

  • To develop health functional foods using high amylose rice flours, the properties of flours prepared from domestic high amylose rice varieties, Goamy2 and Goamy, and imported rice from Thailand were investigated. After soaking the rice grains and drying, the dry-milled rice flours were passed through a 120-mesh sieve. The protein and total starch contents of the Goamy2 rice flour were lowest, but its crude lipid and ash contents were highest among the flours. In addition, apparent amylose content, water binding capacity, and total dietary fiber were highest in the Goamy2 flour (36.2, 255.0, and 9.2%, respectively). The Thai rice flour had the highest swelling power, whereas the Goamy2 flour had the lowest swelling power and solubility. By Rapid visco-analysis, the Thai flour showed the highest peak and total setback viscosities and lowest breakdown viscosity. The pasting pattern of the Goamy2 flour was different from that of the other flour, where low viscosity was maintained during heating and cooling. Goamy and Thai rice flours showed an A type crystallinity, but Goamy2 flour showed a B type crystallinity similar to high amylose maize starch. The Goamy2 flour presented a dull and yellowish color, and the lowest lightness (L) value and the highest yellowness (+b) value.
