[en] Relationships between swelling capacities, pasting properties, rotational flow behaviour and textural properties of hydro-thermally heated wet-milled starch granules from corn dried between 60 and 130°C were investigated. High-drying temperatures applied during the corn drying process conferred to the wet-milled starch granules (WSG) such a rigidity which reduced their swelling capacities, their water binding capacities and their water solubility index after gelatinization. These granules changes affected their pasting characteristics, their flow behaviour and several textural parameters of gel formed from the wet-milled starch granule after gelatinization. The rigidity of granules was a major factor determining the formation of either starch pastes or gels.
