Intrinsic viscosity and gelatinization properties of brown rice starches of Japonica and Tonsil type cultivars were investigated. The intrinsic viscosity was similar between the two cultivars. The gelatinization temperature of Japonica brown rice starch determined by differential scanning calorimetry was higher than that of Tonsil brown rice starch. However, the range of gelatinization temperature, gelatinization enthalpy and the water content for gelatinization were similar between the two starches. The treatment of starch at 6$0^{\circ}C$ for 24hr increased the gelatinization temperature and gelatinization enthalpy and decreased the range of geltinization temperature. The water content for gelatinization was negatively correlated with the range of gelatinization temperature in case of Japonica starch and with the intrinsic viscosity in case of Tonsil one. The in-trinsic viscosities of both Japonica and Tonsil starches were positively correlated with gelatinization enthalpy.
