K-SDAM | Starch Damage Assay Kit

Product code: K-SDAM

The Starch Damage test kit is suitable for the measurement and analysis of starch damage in cereal flours.


Colourimetric method for the determination of Starch Damage in cereal flours

(fungal α-amylase)
(1) Damaged (or gelatinised) starch + H2O → maltodextrins

(2) Maltodextrins + H2O → D-glucose

(glucose oxidase)
(3) D-Glucose + H2O + O2 → D-gluconate + H2O2

(4) 2H2O2 + p-hydroxybenzoic acid + 4-aminoantipyrine → quinoneimine + 4H2O
