Functionalities and relationships between raw and extruded maize flour blends were studied. The extruded flour had higher water absorption and water solubility indices, and had no differential scanning calorimetry endotherm. The parameters of RVA peak, breakdown, setback, and final viscosity were lowered and the parameters of cold viscosity were improved as the fraction of the extruded flour in the mixture increased. In starches from raw flour, a bimodal distribution of the chain length was found by gel permeation chromatography while in the extruded starches only one fraction was observed. The dough quality of 60% raw and 40% extruded flour mixture was found to be better than with other mixture proportions.Keywords:
