Water treated with low-temperature low-frequency glow plasma (LPGP) changes its physical and selected physicochemical properties. LPGP deteriorates the macrostructure of water to the extent dependent on the time of exposition. The resulting water is an aqueous solution of clathrates of water with included molecules of singlet oxygen. In this study, we investigated the properties of gels and foils formed from potato starch gelatinized in water treated with LPGP.
