- ... Spherocrystalline particles were formed in dilute, jet cooked solutions of normal cornstarch, high amylose cornstarch, rice starch and wheat starch, when hot solutions were allowed to slowly cool in insulated Dewar flasks. Yields ranged from approximately 7 to 12%, and particles were composed largely of amylose. Spherocrystals were not obtained from waxy cornstarch, defatted cornstarch or potato s ...
