We believe that for starch fragments, oligosaccharides of a DP up to 10 would be soluble in 80% alcohol. The degree of solubility of other oligosaccharides would depend on the sugar type and linkage type.
How large are the smallest dextrins that are left in the starch (not solubilised) when 80% v/v solution of ethanol is used to solubilise and remove sugars in the Total Starch Assay Kit (AA/AMG) (K-TSTA) procedure?
