1. Closed-loop strategy for valorization of starch : From starch to functionalized starch biomaterials and bioplastics
Sammanfattning : The desire to utilize renewable resources and avoid wastes drives us to develop new concepts for material design. Non-edible starch feedstocks and starch bioplastic wastes were previously considered useless. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Starch is a biodegradable material produced in many different crop plants. Since it is biodegradable, inexpensive, generally has good barrier properties and comes from a renewable source it would be an ideal material to use in e.g. packaging applications. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The crystalline properties of starch constitutes a puzzling area of research. Our understanding of the crystalline structure of amylopectin, that is the crystalline component in starch, is based on the observations from investigations on modified amylose. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The main purpose of this thesis was to examine various factors influencing starch retrogradation. The reassociation events of starch, which are closely linked to the staling of bakery products, were mainly studied by thermal analysis. Some aspects of starch gelatinization are also included.

Sammanfattning : Starch is a plant-derived polysaccharide with many uses in different food and non-food applications. In this thesis, the production of two novel potato starch qualities, amylopectin and high-amylose, and the modifications and the characteristics of the produced plants and starches are described.
