Most of the maltodextrins can be removed with 50% ethanol washing. If the starch is not gelatinised, it can be washed with cold water. This will remove all of the soluble maltodextrins, but the starch will spin down. If the starch has been gelatinised, then the best material which can be used for washing is 50% ethanol.
Can the Total Starch Assay Kit (AA/AMG) (K-TSTA) be used to measure samples containing 10-20% starch & maltodextrins at similar levels? Is it possible to remove the maltodextrins from the sample?
