In this paper, starch granule swelling, during gelatinization in a Couette-Taylor flow apparatus, was investigated. The granule diameters of gelatinized starch were measured using image analysis technology. The results revealed that the granule size distribution was stronger influenced by gelatinization temperature than by other operating parameters. However, the impact of the axial flow or rotor rotation on the average granule diameter was also observed. Moreover, the changes in the value of the average granule diameter and the computer simulations seemed to suggest a flow regime transition in the system, which occurred at the value of rotor angular velocity between 10.04 and 20.09 rad/s. In the second part of the paper the rheological properties of gelatinized starch after treatment in the CTF apparatus were investigated. These properties seemed to correlate with progress of starch granule swelling, which was expressed by the concentration of starch (amylose) dissolved in the water phase.
