Special Issue "Production and Characterisation of Starch and Its Utilisation as Food Ingredient"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 December 2019).
Interests: sugar processing; carbohydrates; novel starches; starches in industrial manufacturing
Interests: method development; analysis; characterizations; processing; carbohydrates; quality control
Starch is primarily used as a key food for sustainable energy, yet advancements in technology have shown starch as a viable ingredient for other industries. Therefore, understanding the physicochemical properties and roles of starch across industries is critical as processing needs, analytical methods, and existing applications evolve. This Special Issue will highlight the advancements in starch production and its effect on foods, new techniques to characterize starches in foods and other commodities, and opportunities for novel starch applications across industries.
