The sorption-desorption of water vapor by grains of potato, corn, and wheat native starch is studied. It is shown that water vapor is mainly sorbed inside starch grains. A model is proposed for water vapor sorption by starch grains. Constructed sorption isotherm is shown to adequately describe the process in a wide humidity range. The kinetics of the sorption and desorption of water vapor by starch grains is shown to have an abnormal character.
