Water Uptake of Bean and Other Starches at High Temperatures and Pressures.

W. U. Halbrook and R. H. Kurtzman, Jr. Copyright 1975 by the American Association of Cereal Chemists, Inc. 

The water uptake of six bean starches at temperatures between 80 and 148 C. was measured. Water uptake differences between starches were small over this temperature range. All of the bean starches appeared to have a water uptake maximum at approximately 121 C. Also, there seems to be a secondary maximum water uptake at a higher temperature. The water uptake of starches from potato and white waxy corn was also determined.
