It is believed that the benefits of high amylose corn include lowering the glycemic index and increasing dietary fiber without adversely affecting the consumer acceptability. Our incentive was to take this specialty corn and create a product that would be acceptable by Japanese standards. For this project noodles were made and evaluated using traditional Japanese and American recipes where flour was substituted with 10, 15, 20 and 25% high amylose starch in order to identify the maximum amount of substitution where acceptability was diminished. The noodles were then tested for texture and taste. Noodles were also prepared using conventional cooking temperatures versus cooking in a pressure cooker because of the high cooking temperature required for the high amylose starch.
