- ... Oxidation of starches of different amylose content was investigated to increase carboxyl and carbonyl content and to increase water solubility. Three types of cornstarches containing up to 70% amylose were oxidized by a reactive extrusion-drum drying process, using hydrogen peroxide and a ferrous-cupric sulfate catalyst. Increasing the peroxide level increased oxidation and solubility. Starches wi ...
