Recently, the use of [alpha]-GTase has received considerable attention, specifically for the development of many starch products such as cycloamylose, cyclic cluster dextrin, slowly digestible starch, and thermoreversible starch [20-23].

In addition, intramolecular glucan transferase produces cyclic glucans (cycloamyloses) with a higher degree of polymerization compared with cyclodextrins [9].
