TYPE 2 diabetes is a common condition yet many people in the UK will not realise they have it because the symptoms do not necessarily make you feel unwell. Symptoms are caused by consistently high blood sugar levels, and, overtime, this can affect different parts of the body, including the shoulder.

However, the hiearchical strcuture of secondary particles with grain boundaries inevitably induces the structural collapse and severe electrode/electrolyte interface parasitic reactions as the intergranular crack arises from the anisotropic shrink and expansi...

Publication date: Available online 18 January 2020Source: Food HydrocolloidsAuthor(s): Eftychios Apostolidis, Ioanna MandalaAbstractHigh amylose (HA) maize starch, rich in amylose (more than 55%), belongs to the category of resistant starch type 2 (RS2), and therefore has a specific structure resistant to digestion. The purpose of this study was to modify HA maize starch, reducing its particle size. A mechanical treatment was used, applying high-pressure homogenization (HPH) at different pressure conditions 140, 200 and 250 MPa and treatment cycles, ranging from 1 to 4. The impact of HPH on starch structure, including si...
