Manipal scientists discover tools to manage nutrition better 22.4.2017 deccanherald.com
Researchers at the Department of Biophysics, School of Life Sciences, Manipal University, and Institute of Biophotonics, National Yang-Ming University, Taipei, Taiwan, have developed a stokes polarimeter based on non-linear optical microscopy (Second Harmonic Generation-SHG) to investigate starch gelatinisation. The findings are published in Nature Publishing Group journal 'Scientific Reports' entitled 'Investigating Starch Gelatinisation through Stokes Vector Resolved Second Harmonic Generation Microscopy.' Starch breaks down under heat and is amenable for digestion. Using optical microscopy, the authors found that starch-water interaction environment was altered upon heating with diminishing signals. The fine structure of starch, organisation and arrangement is due to molecular packaging of amylose and amylopectin in a network and organised as alternating concentric 120-400 nm thick growth rings. The hydrated starch, upon heating, alters the signal due to the micro-structural changes. These could be ...
