    Modified starches are some of the mostly used ingredients in the food industry as flavor encapsulants or carrier materials. The physicochemical characteristics of taro modified starches (e.g., succinylated, phosphorylated, and acetylated) are investigated. It is determined that the chemical modifications made to taro starch produce important changes in the physicochemical properties mainly in the starch structure.
