Abstract

Molecular structural properties of Japonica and Tongil type waxy rice starches were compared. The general properties including water-binding capacity, swelling power at $80^{\circ}C$, intrinsic viscosity, leach loss at $98^{\circ}C$ and ${\beta}-amylolysis$ limit were similar but the chain length was slightly different between the two starches. Similar elution profiles on Sephadex G-50 were obtained when the starches were treated with ${\beta}-amylase$. The pullulanase treated starches however showed different elution patterns each other. The ${\beta}-amylolysis$ of acid-treated (2 days) starches linearly increased as hydrolysis time prolonged. When the acid-treated starches were hydrolyzed with ${\beta}-amylase$ or pullulanase, the elution profiles on Sepharose CL-2B were considerably different from those of native starches.
