Analysis of Total Starch – Summary

The analysis of starch at Midwest uses modified AACC- 76-13.01/AOAC 996.11 methods. The basic protocol is to convert the hydrolysable starch into individual glucose molecules and then measure the amount of glucose (also known as dextrose) present using a glucometer. The test procedure cannot measure resistant starch or differentiate between indigenous glucose and that glucose produced by the enzymatic breakdown of the starch.
