MetadataShow full item record
Wet milling properties of 10 widely grown ZP maize hybrids and the amylose content of produced starch were investigated in this study. The starch yield varied from 57.3% in the hybrid ZP 633 to 69.0% in the hybrid ZP 808. Depending on the observed hybrid, the amylose content ranged from 23.3 to 26.0%, what is characteristic for normal maize starch. High starch yields and high recoveries, as well as, a low level of proteins in obtained starches lt 0.4) indicate the efficiency of the applied wet milling procedure in the evaluation of the utilizable value of ZP maize hybrids.
