Nineteen international university-, laboratory-, government-, and industry-based researchers contribute ten chapters providing an up-to-date overview of trends and advances in the production and applications of starches in the food, textiles, pharmaceuticals, chemical, agricultural, and plastics industries when used as a substitute for synthetic polymers. The text focuses on a sampling of techniques used in starch characterization as well as some aspects of production, properties, and biodegradation of starch-based products. Featuring discussion of starch characterization, modified starches, starch-based plastics and nanocomposites, and biodegradation of starch blends, the text is suitable as a reference for researchers, teachers, and other professionals concerned with starch and starch-based products, and as a reference or textbook for graduate courses on starches and biopolymers.
