Technical Abstract: While amylose inclusion complexes (AIC) have been known for decades, only recently has a high productivity/high yield method been developed. With this breakthrough, efforts have been put forth to define the value of these materials. It has been demonstrated that AIC are very effective emulsifiers/surfactants. The AIC produced in our lab are superior to many currently produced products such as octenyl succinic anhydride modified starch or sodium lauryl sulfate. The production of AIC and their characterization will be presented. Research results will be presented demonstrating the unique value which these AIC will bring to surfactant and emulsifier producers and users. These AIC are 99+% biobased and are 100% biodegradable. There are both food grade and industrial versions available. Some AIC have pesticidal properties.
