C0035491 - Potato Starch
Photograph - Light Micrograph
Potato starch grains. Polarized light micrograph of a transverse section through a potato tuber (Solanum tuberosum), showing the starch grains. A central cross, called the hilum, marks the highest point of a starch grain. When viewed by polarized light they exhibit double refraction (anisotrophy) and show the characteristic dark cross of colors (blue-red and yellow-green) traversing the starch grains. Magnification: x230 when printed at 10 centimeters wide.
