Technical Abstract: As part of our continuing research program on starch utilization, we are investigating steam jet cooking as a method for preparing blends of starch with other monomeric and polymeric materials. In this presentation, we describe the preparation and properties of new starch-oil compositions by a jet cooking process that utilizes the high temperature and turbulence within the cooker to uniformly distribute the oil component within the starch matrix as micron-sized droplets that do not coalesce and separate.
