Abstract: Enzymatic modification of starch granules is a method to modify starch below the gelatinization temperature. The morphology, structure, crystallinity, solubility, and gelatinization and rheological properties of starch are changed after modification, improving the processing characteristics and application value of starch. This article summarizes the changes in the structure and properties of starch granules before and after enzymatic modification as well as the enzymes and methods used for starch modification, which is expected to provide reference for the application of enzyme-modified starch granules.

Key words: starch granules; starch modification; enzymatic methods; characterization methods; physicochemical properties
