The method will work for some chemically modified starches (e.g. crosslinked) however, if the degree of chemical modification is high, there will be an underestimation as the modification will interfere with complete hydrolysis to glucose and subsequent measurement.
Can the Total Starch Assay Kit (AA/AMG) (K-TSTA) be used to measurechemically modified starches e.g. highly crosslinked, dextrinised and highly propylene oxide substituted starches?
