STARCH GRAIN CHARACTERISTICS AND AMYLOSE CONTENT IN RELATION TO POLLINATION TIME AND SEED SIZE, AND GERMINATION BEHAVIOUR IN PHASEOLUS SPECIES

Published on

THE starch of beans is often considered a single substance made up of two components,
amylose and amylopectin. Amylose content is considered to be a more important
character than amylopectin content, because of its industrial uses in the manufacture
of edible casings, in paper industry as a binding agent, and in textile manufacture
as a permanent finish where other hydroxylated polymers have been used (Senti, 1958).
