Oats do not contain gluten protein, and oat dough structure is formed mainly through the hydrogen bonding of starch and β-glucan. As a non-thermal processing technology, high hydrostatic pressure (HHP) is mainly used to modify starch and protein in food processing. This study investigated the effects of HHP treatment on the morphological, structural, thermal, pasting and in vitro digestion properties of oat starch/β-glucan mixtures. Results. Showed that β-glucan interconnects with amylose through hydrogen bonding and has a protective effect on the crystalline region of oat starch. Effect of HHP treatment on the crystal structure of mixture system goes through crystal structure perfection stage, crystallisation disintegration and gelatinisation stage. After 300-400MPa treatment, the changes in particle surface were not obvious, the phase transition temperature, the ΔHgel and the PT of mixtures increased, while the particle size, viscosity and BD values decreased. After 500-600MPa treatment, mixtures were completely gelatinised, most of...
