Factors affecting starch paste:
1.Moisture starch can only be sufficient moisture in the presence of more than 30% of the water will be able to make full starch paste. The water is too low to paste, and the paste is not complete.
2. Action of alkali, alkali can accelerate the pasting of starch
3. The effects of some salts and organic compounds on the starch can be promoted. Such as sodium thiocyanate, potassium iodide, ammonium nitrate and calcium chloride solution, at room temperature can make the starch gelatinization.
4. Role of lipids, lipids acids can be heated to 100 degrees Celsius in the water, as a result of the formation of a stable complex with the amylose. therefore, it is difficult to make starch swelling and paste.
5. Effect of amylose content, Starch with high amylose content was more difficult to be lower than amylose content.
