Starches obtained from five selected improved cassava species (NR 93/0199, TMS 96/0304, TMS 98/0581, TMS 92/10326, TMS 98/12123) were chemically modified by oxidation, acetylation and acid-thinning. Baking potentials of these starches were investigated. Acetylated starches significantly (p<0.05) gave the highest values in specific volume (10.25 ml/g). Acid-thinned starches significantly (p<0.05) yielded the lowest values in specific volume (2.92 ml/g). Oxidized starches maintained the least positions in some sensory properties – aroma (6.60), and general acceptability (6.62). TMS 96/0304 significantly (p<0.05) had the lowest value in specific volume (5.54 ml/g). Highest values were obtained in specific volume (6.82 ml/g) for NR 93/0199 as well as for TMS 98/12123 among the cassava species. Although the different modification methods and cassava species showed no significant (p>0.05) effects on the sensory properties of the wheat/cassava starch bread samples, the native starches and TMS 98/0581 had the highest scores for general acceptability.
