  • Solubility of various starches in water based on temperature.

    Posted by graillotion on January 19, 2022 at 2:38 am

    I am looking for a chart that shows at what temperature various starches will become soluble in water.

    I am particularly interested in comparing arrowroot with rice starch.  As I do not want the starch to solubilize, I need to know what available working temps I would have with each starch type.

    I believe rice starch is 90C.  Not sure about some of the others.

    I am making an emulsified deo cream, and the working temp is running in the 80-85C range.

    Aloha.

    Has anyone come across Taro (Colocasia esculenta) starch?

    A cursory glance….and I only find the flour.

    (Even ULP just went….Huh???)  :D 

    Aloha.

    Maybe my question was answered by Pharma, in a link he sent me via e-mail.  I will share it for other curious minds…that might want to know….hehehe….or maybe the rest of you….already knew.

    Aloha
