Recently our research paper entitled “Investigating starch gelatinization through Stokes vector resolved second harmonic generation microscopy” was published online in Scientific Reports. In this paper we reported the findings of our investigation on the changes of morphology during heating and the degree of crystallinity of dry and hydrated starch granules by using second harmonic generation (SHG) based Stokes polarimetry. The fundamental understanding of the optical nonlinearity of starch granules will provide a valid basis for future studies in food science and insights into the energy transformation dynamics.
