A method has been devised to measure gelatinization of starch. The procedure involves selective digestion of gelatinized starch with glucoamylase (alpha-1,4-glucan glucohydrolase, E.C. 18.104.22.168) followed by determining the D-glucose released, using D-glucose oxidase. Glucoamylase also was used to determine total starch. The method, tested on known mixtures of gelatinized and prime starch, accurately measured gelatinization.
