Starch is part of a large range of products, such as all kinds of meals and food products, feeds, and materials for industrial use or home maintenance, like adhesive (wall paper), textile finishing (stiffing), paper ingredient, etc.
A Starch Identification System (version 3.0) was developed in order to pinpoint starch varieties in food, feed and other products. The system assists in the identification of natural types as well as in the recognition of several modifications of starch. Light microscopy was selected as principal method for examination.
The program Determinator need to be downloaded and installed as first step before installing the module Starch. A manual for installation is available.
