Starch -- Glucoamylase Method with Subsequent Measurement of Glucose with Glucose Oxidase

VIEW METHOD

Objective
Starch is measured as glucose by an enzymatic-colorimetric assay, after initial gelatinization in an autoclave, followed by enzymatic hydrolysis. This method is applicable to starch determination in complex media, including all starchy products (food and feed, digestive contents) and glycogen. See Note 1.
