Development of an Equilibrium Dialysis Technique for Quantifying Starch-Lipid Complexes.

A sensitive equilibrium dialysis technique for evaluating starch-lipid complexes was developed. The use of 14C-labeled lipid permitted accurate quantification using lipid concentrations that were soluble in water. An evaluation of membrane materials differing in chemical composition showed conventional regenerated cellulose dialysis film to be most effective in retaining dispersed starch while minimizing lipid adsorption to the membrane. A 12-hr dialysis was necessary to attain equilibrium. The complex was soluble in water and complex formation was reversible. The amount of bound lipid was affected by starch concentration.
