Starches from the eight varieties of rice were analyzed using scanning electron microscope(SEM), differential scanning calorimetry(DSC) and X-ray diffractometry, and tested on the starch-granule susceptibility to 15% $H_2SO_4$ and glucoamylase. The shape of starch granules from normal rice varieties and low-amylose mutants were polygonal while shrunken and floury mutants were globular. According to DSC, starches from Nampung CB243 showed higher onset temperature$(T_o)$, completion temperature$(T_c)$ and Punchilmi, Nampung EM90 showed higher enthalpy$({\triangle}H)$ of gelatinization than others. shr showed the highest hydrolysis rate to 15% $H_2SO_4$ while Nampung CB243 showed the lowest one. Eight varieties of rice starch granules showed A-type pattern on X-ray diffractograms. The lower amylose content rice varieties showed the higher hydrolysis rate treated with glucoamylase.
