GARCIA-MOGOLLON, CARLOS; SALCEDO-MENDOZA, JAIRO  e  ALVIS-BERMUDEZ, ARMANDO. OPTIMUM CONDITIONS FOR THE LEACHING STEP IN THE EXTRACTION OF CASSAVA STARCH. Rev.Bio.Agro [online]. 2018, vol.16, n.1, pp.62-67. ISSN 1692-3561.  http://dx.doi.org/10.18684/bsaa.v16n1.625.

The leaching operation is to put in contact enough water with ground manioc to extract the starch and separate it from the fiber and other components. With the objective of determining the optimal conditions of water consumption in the stage of leaching of cassava was obtained a starch extraction (cassava pulp - water) equilibrium curve. The excessive use of water does not warrant the extraction of starch in this process and increases the cost of this. Quantities of pulp-water were mixed for a residence time of 5 s at 37°C, and refining through a mesh of 120 mesh; to then calculate the composition in water, starch and inert. The results obtained allow optimum relationship of 450 kg to 740 kg of water per 1 kg of cassava pulp with a percentage between the 18 and 20% of removable starch. With the optimization it was possible to reduce the consumption of 3 to 4 kg of water per 1 kg of cassava pulp.
