Improved Extractibility Of Sweet Potato Starch Using Commercial Hydrolytic Enzymes

Keywords: substrate, hydrolytic, enzymes, rasping
The starch granules present in the sweet potato roots are imbedded in cellulosic fibers
and held together by pectin substrates. Rasping the chopped roots conventionally does the extraction
of starch. Vision of this study was to investigate the effect of endogenous and commercial hydrolytic
enzymes (cytolase, pectinase and cellulase) whether breakdown these substrates could lead to better
release of the starch granule.
