The water solubility and swelling power of barley and oat starches were increased by treatment in aqueous ethanol at 150–170 °C. Viscosity curves of 8 % water dispersions of the partially depolymerized granular starch products at room temperature were comparable to those of native starch heated at 98 °C.
