Abstract Konjac oligo-glucomannan (KOG) was prepared by degradation of konjac glucomannan (KG) using β-mannanase. The hydrolysis process was monitored by the viscosity of the enzymatic hydrolysates. Factors affecting the enzymatic hydrolysis of KG were investigated, and the optimum hydrolysis conditions were as follows: time 2 h; temperature 50 °C; pH 6.0; and enzymatic concentration 150 U/g. Under these optimized conditions, minimum viscosity (31.9 mPa·s) of the hydrolasate was obtained. The average degree of polymerization (DP) of the resulting KOG was approximately equal to 5.2. The results of Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectra of KG and KOG indicated that KG was successfully degraded. In addition, their antioxidant activities were evaluated by determination of hydroxyl radical (•OH) and 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhrazyl radical (•DPPH) scavenging activity, and determination of reducing power. The results showed that KOG exhibited significant antioxidant activities. Taken together, this study suggested that KOG could potentially be used as a natural antioxidant.

Abstract In this study, the effects of konjac glucomannan (KGM) on Chinese noodles made from low-protein wheat flour were studied. Noodles were prepared from wheat flour/KGM blends by replacing low-protein flour at 1%, 2%, 3%, 4% and 5% with konjac glucomannan (KGM). The cooking and textural properties, microstructure and sensory characteristics were evaluated. KGM addition contributed to higher cooking yield and lower cooking loss for the resultant noodles. The sensory quality of KGM noodles wa...

a b s t r a c t To study the preparation and separation of Konjac oligosaccharides, Konjac Glucomannan was degraded by the combination of -irradiation and -mannanase, and then the degradation product was sepa- rated by ultrafiltration. To our interest, for most of Konjac oligosaccharides obtained by this method, the molecular mass was lower than 2200 Da. In addition, the 1000 Da molecular weight cut off membrane could effectively separate the Konjac oligosaccharides. In conclusion, the combinati...

Incorporating high volume fractions of broccoli powder in starch noodle dough has a major effect on its shear modulus, as a result of significant swelling of the broccoli particles. Several hydrocolloids with distinct water binding capacity (locust bean gum (LBG), guar gum, konjac glucomannan (KG), hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) and xanthan gum), were added to systems with 4 and 20% (v/v dry based) broccoli particles, and the effect of this addition on dough rheology, mechanical properties...

Abstract This paper reports a study of the influence of konjac glucomannan (KGM) on the gel properties of low-quality surimi. Compared with the surimi control, adding KGM significantly improved its gel properties. KGM content, heating temperature and heating time had significant effects on gel properties. Response surface methodology (RSM) was applied to optimize the processing parameters of adding KGM to low-quality surimi for improving the gel properties. The optimal conditions for gel propert...

Abstract Recently, renewed interest has grown in the use of ultrasonic-assisted extraction as an alternative approach to the traditional extraction methods. In this study, this novel extraction method was used to isolate polysaccharides from Cyclocarya paliurus (Batal.) Iljinskaja, and response surface methodology (RSM) was employed to optimize the extraction conditions. The optimal conditions for the extraction of polysaccharides were determined to be the ratio of liquid to solid of 8, extracti...

Abstract The current study investigated the effect of a neutral polysaccharide, konjac glucomannan, on the heat-induced gelation of whey protein isolate (WPI) at pH 7. Oscillatory rheology (1 rad/s; 0.5% strain), differential scanning calorimetry and confocal laser scanning microscopy were used to investigate the effect of addition of konjac in the range 0–0.5% w/w, on the thermal gelation properties of WPI. The minimum gelling concentration for WPI samples was 11% w/w; the concentration was the...

Abstract In order to improve the surface property of Konjac glucomannan (KGM) film, the nitrogen plasma modification was carried out using ion beam injection machine. The surface atomic composition was evaluated by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy analysis afterward. It was observed that the atomic concentration ratio of wO/wC increased using plasma treatment. The molecular chain degraded and acetyl was partly removed. Hydroxyl was partly replaced by primary amide group. Generation of new functi...

Enzymes from a balanced human gut flora are promising tools to design prebiotic oligosaccharides. In this study, we investigated the action of enzymes from fecal bacteria on the complex polysaccharide konjac glucomannan (KGM). The oligosaccharides produced were compared to oligosaccharides from KGM digests with fungal endo-β-(1,4)-glucanase (EG) or endo-β-(1,4)-mannanase (EM). For this purpose, the oligosaccharides from the different digests were first studied for their structural characteristic...

Abstract Flaxseed oligosaccharides (FGOS) were prepared by degradation of flaxseed gum (FG) using enzymatic method. Factors affecting the enzymatic hydrolysis of FG were investigated by single factor and orthogonal tests. In the optimum hydrolysis conditions (reaction time 12 h, temperature 50 °C, pH 4.5, cellulase concentration 100 U/mL), the reducing sugar ratio and extraction yield of FGOS were 33.6 ± 0.35% and 56.8 ± 0.41%, respectively. The average molecular weight of FGOS was about 1.6 kDa...

Abstract Konjac glucomannan (KGM) with a molecular weight (MW) of 823.4 kDa was partially degraded by endo-1,4-β-mannanase. Two hydrolyzed KGM fractions (KGM-M-1: 147.2 kDa and KGM-M-2: 21.5 kDa) were characterized and applied to the animal tests in comparison with the native KGM. After oral feeding to the mice, KGM-M-1 and KGM-M-2 significantly increased the short chain fatty acids (SCFAs) in the colonic contents and the native KGM increased SCFAs in the cecum. The more significant effect of th...

Abstract Chronic diarrhea is the most common problem in most of the countries with low socio-economic conditions. Hence, efficient therapeutic formulations are required. The present article explores the potential of the gum polysaccharide that itself has an anti-diarrheal activity, to develop the antibiotic drug ‘meropenem’ carrier, to improve the pharmacotherapy of the diarrhea. The gum based pure and sterile polymeric drug delivery device was prepared by radiation induced crosslinking method. ...

Abstract An active and intelligent film was developed by immobilizing red cabbage anthocyanins (RCA) into an oxidized-chitin nanocrystals (O-ChNCs)/konjac glucomannan (KGM) matrix. O-ChNCs were selected as a host complex to anchor RCA and were considered as a reinforcement filler in the films. Zeta-potential, Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, rheology, and release results revealed that RCA interacted with O-ChNCs through electrostatic interactions and altered the comple...
Kojic acid (KA) with antibacterial activities produced by fermentation was grafted onto konjac glucomannan oligosaccharide (KGO) composed of glucose and mannose linked by β-1,4 glycosidic bonds. A novel KGO derivative, konjac glucomannan oligosaccharide kojic acid (KGOK) possessing both moisture retention and antibacterial activities was synthesized. The structure of KGOK was characterized and analyzed by thermogravimetric analysis (TG), XRD, UV–vis absorption, FTIR, and 1H NMR. The analysis res...

Mannanoligosaccharides (MOS) can be used in poultry production to modulate immunity and improve growth performance. So, we hypothesized that our enzymatic MOS could achieve the same effects in broilers. To investigate this, a total of 192 one-day-old Partridge Shank chickens were allocated to four dietary treatments consisting of six replicates with eight chicks per replicate, and they were fed a basal diet supplemented with 0, 0.5, 1 and 1.5 g MOS per kg of diet(g/kg) for42 days. Treatments did...

Abstract The glycation of silver carp myosin (Ms) with konjac oligo-glucomannan (KOG) of different degrees of deacetylation (DD) was investigated. As DD increased, the physico-chemical and functional properties of glycoconjugates changed. The available lysine content decreased, while grafting degree and total sulfhydryl group increased, and meanwhile, the isoelectric point (pI) reduced. SDS-PAGE analysis indicated that glycation can be promoted as the increase of DD. The solubility increased sig...
