MetadataShow full item record
Sago palm starch, gum arabic and three types of carrageenan (EPT-2, St-0008-29 & St-008-30A) were tried as binders in a practical diet. EPT-2 carrageenan gave consistently better water stability than the other binders in both steamed and unsteamed pellets after 24 hours. Although water stability of the unsteamed pellets was lower than steamed pellets, those made with EPT-2 had higher water stability (53.4%) than those prepared with the other binders.
