- ... Chemical and physical properties of kiwifruit (Actinidia deliciosa var. Hayward) starch were studied. Kiwifruit starch granules were compound, irregular or dome-shaped with diameters predominantly 4-5 µm or 7-9 µm. Kiwifruit starch exhibited B-type X-ray diffraction pattern, an apparent amylose content of 43.1% and absolute amylose content of 18.8%. Kiwifruit amylopectins, relative to other starch ...
