The aim of the study was to evaluate the impact of selected fatty acids: palmitic, stearic or oleic on functional properties of cassava and wheat starches. Effectiveness of complexation procedure was evaluated by determination of complexing index, lipids content and fatty acid composition. Native starches and their complexes with fatty acids were analyzed for water binding capacity and solubility in water, in vitro digestibility, pasting characteristic and rheological properties. On the basis of the obtained results it was found that values of complexing index values for both starches complexed with oleic acid were remarkably higher than those determined in palmitic or stearic counterparts. Starches complexation with fatty acids resulted in a significant increase in the percentage share of used fatty acid in total fatty acid composition. Presence of oleic acid in cassava starch significantly limited its water binding capacity and solubility in water. Complexation with all fatty acids used in...
