Starch granules were isolated from the grain of Oryza sativa L. (variety IR8) during development from a few days after flowering to maturity, and their properties were investigated. Granule size, relative viscosity, and amylose content of the starch increased, and its gelatinization temperature decreased slightly during grain development. Amylose and amylopectin isolated from three samples were characterized.
