What is Pullulan?

Pullulan is an extracellular water-soluble mucopolysaccharide comparable to glucan and also xanthan gum tissue developed by the fermentation of Aureobasidium pullulans, also called pullulan, pullulan, English name Pullu-lan, transcribed as Pu Ruland.The polysaccharide has special structure and also domestic or industrial homes, is structurally flexible, as well as has fairly high solubility. Pullulan has strong film-forming properties, gas challenge properties, plasticity as well as likewise thickness, as well as has impressive residential or commercial properties such as being quickly soluble in water, safe as well as also safe, anemic as well as likewise odorless. Broad application leads. Since it can be damaged and also made use of by germs in nature as well as likewise will certainly not create environmental pollution, it is called pollution-free plastic. On May 19, 2006, the Ministry of Wellness And Wellness of individuals’s Republic of China provided the No. 8 News. Pullulan is among the 4 new artificial additive things, which can be made use of in sweet, scrumptious chocolate surface, movie, substance flavor and fruit and vegetable juice drinks. It is used as a layer representative along with a thickening agent.

Pullulan Uses

  1. Pullulan has actually been commonly made use of in medication, food, light market, and chemical industry. Pullulan is just one of the 4 new food additive items. It can be utilized in sweet, chocolate finish, movie, substance spices as well as fruit and vegetable juice beverages. Finishing agent as well as thickener. The aqueous service of pullulan has a smooth and rejuvenating sensation, and also has the attributes of boosting the taste, so it can be made use of as a food quality improver as well as a thickening agent. Including a percentage of pullulan throughout food handling can considerably boost food top quality. A percentage of pullulan can be contributed to condiments, pickles, boiled fish as well as shrimp, tasty food, and so on, to maintain its thickness, enhance its dampness and make its taste smoother.
  2. Pullulan is made use of as thickener, stabilizer, coating agent, and also quality improver. Normally, it is commonly utilized in combination with carrageenan as well as locust bean gum, as well as the dose is 0.15% to 0.5%. It can be straight contributed to food to streamline the production procedure, avoid aging, give radiance, change part of starchy resources in food, and manufacture health food. It can additionally be splashed or dipped to form a film to stop oxidation.
  3. Pullulan has actually been made use of in research study to review bone tissue engineering. It is likewise utilized in anti-fog applications.

The Food Industry Urgently Needs to Expand-Pululan Polysaccharide

Capsules are conventional dosage forms of medicines, and the quality of capsules directly affects the performance of medicines. Traditional capsules are made of gelatin, glycerin and water, and are widely used because of their low price. However, due to the shortcomings of gelatin, such as easy water loss and hardening, water absorption and softening, and easy cross-linking and curing, it is not used in many types of medicines. Plant capsules based on hydroxypropyl methylcellulose and microbial polysaccharide capsules based on pullulan, which are suitable for use, are more applicable. The oxygen permeability of pullulan is hydroxypropyl 1/300 of the methyl cellulose capsule and 1/8 of the gelatin capsule, which can well protect the contents of the capsule from oxidation. In the selection of high-quality capsule wall materials, pullulan can be said to be “unparalleled”. right”.

The film-forming property of pullulan is very prominent, and it is easy to form a tough film, and the permeability of the film is very low, which can effectively isolate the exchange of gas and water molecules, thereby playing a role in preservation. The fresh-keeping effect of pullulan is related to the molecular weight. The larger the molecular weight, the more stable the film formed. The storage period of fruits and vegetables treated with high molecular weight pullulan has been greatly improved. Some studies have pointed out that after apples are treated with pullulan with a molecular weight of 200,000, the water retention rate after 2 months is still above 99%. The fresh-keeping mechanism of pullulan is slightly different from that of chitosan, and chitosan has more antibacterial pathways. Therefore, the combined use of pullulan and chitosan can maximize the preservation of fruits and vegetables. Freshness.

Under the dual pressure of environmental degradation and lack of resources, the development of environmentally friendly products continues to rise. Pullulan has good film-forming properties and can form a film without the assistance of other substances. The edible film made of pullulan can protect the contents well and increase the shelf life because of its poor permeability. Lulan polysaccharide is easily degraded in the environment and has outstanding advantages in the development of edible film, which is called “edible plastic”.

Compared with common microbial polysaccharides such as xanthan gum and gellan gum, the application of pullulan in food processing has not been widely carried out. The former Ministry of Health only listed pullulan as a new food additive product in 2006. One of them is currently only used in a limited range of seasonings, fruit and vegetable juice drinks, and protein solid drinks.

In fact, pullulan has shown good application advantages in many fields such as meat products, rice and flour products, and my country, as a major agricultural country, has abundant corn yields as the raw material of pullulan, and its application in the food industry will be promising.

Research Progress on the Production of Pullulan From Agricultural Waste

Lignocellulosic biomass and agricultural-based waste are viable feedstocks for the production of glucan biopolymers. At present, a variety of agricultural waste raw materials have been used for the production and preparation of pullulan. The researchers made a detailed summary of different microbial species, fermentation conditions, types of agricultural waste and the yield of pullulan. Factors affecting the yield of pullulan: carbon source, nitrogen source, initial pH, stirring speed, additives and temperature, etc.

Pullulan has unique physical and chemical properties and is widely used in industry (food, pharmaceutical, biomedicine and other industries). In the food field, pullulan can be used as stabilizers, enhancers, adhesives and low-viscosity fillers in baked goods, confectionery and beverages. In the cosmetic industry, pullulan can be used as a humectant, stabilizer and coating. The excellent film-forming ability of pullulan makes it have broad application prospects in food packaging and targeted delivery of biomolecules, vaccines and drugs. The pullulan complex film improves the shelf life and quality of fruits and other foods. Pullulan has good water solubility and high biocompatibility, and is widely used in drug delivery, tissue engineering, wound healing, etc. Pullulan has the ability to form hydrogels and acts as a molecular chaperone when combined with nanogels. Electrospinning nanofibers provide new ideas for new applications of pullulan in nanotechnology.
