Analysis of different extraction solvents: Influence on some properties of aerial yam (Dioscorea bulbifera) starch

December 2022 - Vol 16 Num. 12

Starch was extracted from aerial yam (Dioscorea bulbifera) using water, sodium hydroxide, ammonium oxalate, and oxalic acid as extraction solvents, oven-dried at 45°C for 24 h, and milled to flour. The starch obtained was evaluated for yield, chemical and functional properties using standard procedures. The sensory...
