1. Application in food
( 1) Application of Glucomannan Cvs in food
Glucomannan Cvs, as a type of dietary fiber with outstanding performance, has a range of physiological functions, and has actually been paid a growing number of focus in the field of organic food. Glucomannan is a hemicellulose polysaccharide, which can successfully stimulate the digestive wall surface, as well as is hard to be decayed as well as absorbed in the stomach after consuming. It can likewise enhance the secretion and task of intestinal enzymes. Medicinal tasks such as blood lipids, improving cholesterol metabolism and also anti-cancer. Consequently, these properties of glucomannan can be utilized to make konjac right into numerous natural food, such as konjac tofu, konjac cakes, and so on, or include it to various foods, which can be utilized to readjust the stomach, reduced blood sugar level, blood lipids, and lose weight., anti-cancer and other functional foods.
( 2) Glucomannan Curricula vitae as a preservative
Glucomannan Cvs is a natural water-soluble edible periodontal with full features, which can be used as thickener, water-retaining representative, emulsifier, gelling agent, putting on hold representative, and so on. Its performance is far superior to that of carrageenan, gelatin and also other periodontals. Glucomannan is likewise a non-ionic water-soluble polysaccharide, which can co-dissolve and synergize with the majority of ionic edible periodontals, so glucomannan has been widely utilized in the field of food additives. For example, it can be made use of as a stabilizer in soy products and dairy products; as a thickener and gelling agent in solid drinks.
( 3) Application of Glucomannan Cvs in food conservation
Glucomannan Cvs is extensively used in food conservation. Furthermore, it is a non-toxic and also reliable natural chemical, which can efficiently avoid the putridity as well as wear and tear of fruits and vegetables and marine products, inhibit the browning and water loss of vegetables and fruits, and lengthen the storage space duration and also life span of products. The hydrosol of glucomannan can be changed right into a movie under proper problems, as well as can also be made use of as an edible all-natural degradable movie product.
( 4) Bionic food made from Glucomannan Cvs
The thermally irreparable network framework formed after deacetylation of glucomannan can be made use of as a good base for handling biomimetic foods.
2. Application in industry
Due to the fact that KGM has the features of water solubility, movie formation, plasticity as well as attachment, it can be made use of as a binder, excipient, water retention representative, stabilizer, suspending representative, coating agent in light industry, chemical industry, fabric, cigarette, petroleum, cosmetics and also various other industries. Wait.
Raw konjac raw materials and phosphopeptides or alkaline coagulants can be utilized to absorb calcium ions in seawater. DEAE-Glucomannan Cvs is still stable under alkaline, acidic or heated conditions, and also can be made use of as molecular screens to separate monosaccharides from polysaccharides and to desalt healthy proteins. It can likewise be made use of to separate blood coagulation aspect. Furthermore, KGM can be made use of to separate oligonucleotides by capillary electrophoresis; cross-linking with chloromethan can stand up to high pressure as a fixed stage in chromatography for healthy protein separation; using chloromethan-1,6- hexylene Diamine-valeraldehyde is made use of to debilitate cyclodextrin glucanotransferase after activation; it is utilized as a debilitated provider after copolymerization with benzoquinone to incapacitate cells and enzymes. KGM can additionally be made use of as an affinity chromatography provider to divide and cleanse superoxide dismutase without causing non-specific adsorption of pollutant proteins.
3. Various other
KGM can be made use of as an adhesive to make water-proof fabric; it can additionally be used to make cosmetics for innovative skin treatment and hair care. Carboxymethyl konjac glucomannan as well as its by-products as medication service providers to treat cancer cells. KGM is used as medical hygiene products, products for get in touch with lenses, and for making water-in-oil (W/O) emulsion fuels, and so on.
