The amylolysis pattern of the studied noodles resembles that shown by freshly prepared tortillas from commercial dough and commercial dry dough flour, which were shown to reach a maximal hydrolysis level during the first 15min of reaction and remained constant thereafter (Bello-Perez et al., 2006).
The low hydrolysis rate recorded for "ayocote" bean resembles that exhibited by legumes in general; for instance, amylolysis values for a number of black bean cultivars ranged between 7 and 30% after a 90min digestion (Vargas-Torres et al., 2004b).
Similarly, amylolysis rate decreased in samples submitted to prolonged storage, resulting in estimated GI values between 62.9 and 59.7%, which shows that starch in this type of bean is slowly digested, particularly in stored samples.
