Characteristics of a cream of cheese with bacon frozen soup concentrate.

"The starch granules of both Purity W, a modified waxy cornstarch, and wheat flour were affected by processing, refrigeration, freezing, and reheating. The major change in starch granules shown by scanning electron micrographs was the trend towards greater deformation of the starch granule and, apparently, subsequent greater homogeneity of the mixture.

The other quality characteristics of texture acceptability, consistency, and syneresis were not statistically (p of less than 0.05) different."
