The stability of starch structures/granules generated by the biosynthetic process in plants is discussed together with the molecular and structural control exerted by these starch forms on amylase hydrolysis. Hydrolysis by amylases is controlled by a number of architectural and molecular aspects of starch structures in the native and the processed forms. Observations are made regarding the control of starch digestibility by different types of starch structures.
