Understanding the direct and indirect mechanisms of xylanase action on starch digestion in broilers (2017)
Journal Article
Lee, S. A., Wiseman, J., Masey O’Neill, H. V., Scholey, D. V., Burton, E. J., & Hill, S. E. (2017). Understanding the direct and indirect mechanisms of xylanase action on starch digestion in broilers. Journal of World's Poultry Research, The, 7(2), ISSN 2322-455X

The objective of the current study was to investigate the mechanisms of xylanase action in a maize-soya diet and its effect on starch digestion. A total of 60 broilers were divided into 6 treatment groups; a control group without xylanase, and five o... Read More

Effect of granule organisation on the behaviour of starches in the NMMO (N-methyl morpholine N-oxide) solvent system (2014)
Journal Article
Koganti, N., Mitchell, J., Macnaughtan, W., Hill, S. E., & Foster, T. (2015). Effect of granule organisation on the behaviour of starches in the NMMO (N-methyl morpholine N-oxide) solvent system. Carbohydrate Polymers, 116, doi:10.1016/j.carbpol.2014.06.060. ISSN 0144-8617

The response of starches of different botanical origin to heating in 78% N-methyl morpholine N-oxide (NMMO) is compared with their behaviour in water. For all starches studied an exothermic transition is obtained in the NMMO system rather than the en... Read More
