This study was done to investigate the effects of temperature and pH towards the dual-modification of Saba banana starch. The variables studied were temperature (30°C, 40°C and 50°C) and pH (9. 10, 11 and 12). Two-way ANOVA statistical analysis was employed to analyze the interaction effect of temperature and pH. Result of the statistical analysis showed that there was an interaction effect (p<0.05) between temperature and pH in affecting dual-modification of Saba banana starch. Temperature 30°C was less efficient in dual-modification process. Meanwhile, dual-modified starches synthesized at 40°C were generally high in MS. On the other hand, samples synthesized at 50°C were high in degree of cross-linking. As pH increased, the level of cross-linking increased (p<0.05). Condition 400CpHl1 was able to produce dual-modified starch with highest MS (p<0.05); whereas condition 50°CpH12 was able to synthesize dual-modified starch with highest level of cross-linking (p<0.05). There was a good correlation between phosphorus content and paste clarity (r<0.774**). Sample modified at pH12 showed highest paste clarity (p<0.05) and were found to have better paste clarity then dual-modified starch with high MS (p<0.05). Starch synthesized at condition 4O°CᵨHl0 showed highest peak viscosity, final viscosity and breakdown (p<0.05). Sample modified at pH12 produced highly cross-linked sample with poor thickening properties. Besides, result of freeze thaw showed that dual-modified starch synthesized at condition 40°CpHll showed best freeze thaw stability (p<0.05). In contrast, dual-modified starch with highest level of cross-linking (50°CpH12) was poor in freeze thaw stability (p<0.05).
