Physicochemical properties of heat-moisture (18, 21, 24 and 27%) treated naked barley (Youngsanbori) starch indicated that crystailinity of the starch was decreased upon treatment and water-binding capacity drastically increased as the moisture level increased. The swelling power was decreased, but the solubility increased by heat-moisture treatment. Apparent viscosity in aqueous sodium hydroxide solution was repressed as moisture-treatment level increased. Amylograph hot paste vicosities were decreased upon treatment except initial pasting temperature.
