Application of Pullulan Polysaccharide in Food Industry
As Food Packaging Material
Pullulan polysaccharide aqueous solution has excellent film-forming property, gloss and transparency, good toughness, extremely stable to temperature change, and film has good heat sealing property. The finished product does not need plasticizer and stabilizer. It is harmless to food, environment and human body, so it is a very ideal water-soluble food packaging material. The most special properties of pullulan polysaccharide membranes are lower permeability than other polymer membranes. Oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, aroma and other gases can hardly be penetrated, and they have anti-grease properties. They can prevent diffusion and odor and taste deterioration caused by oxidation of oils contained in ingredients and additives. Food film made from Pullulan polysaccharide aqueous solution can be used to seal food which is easy to oxidize and deteriorate, and powder food with strong flavor, such as soup, coffee, sauce, spices, freeze-dried food, etc. It can protect the appearance and flavor of food and keep stability for a long time.
Using pullulan polysaccharide as food packaging material can also make the surface of food smooth and glossy. The greatest characteristic is that pullulan polysaccharide is edible. Food does not need to be opened, and can be eaten by connecting film. It is very convenient. In the preservation of fruits and eggs, pullulan polysaccharides or their derivatives can be used, with appropriate chemical protective ingredients, sprayed directly on the surface of fruits and eggs to form films, which can effectively inhibit the exchange and reaction of water, oxygen and carbon dioxide with the outside world, and inhibit the respiratory intensity of fruits and eggs, reduce the nutritional loss during storage, so as to achieve the purpose of preservation.
Used as a low calorie food additive
Pullulan polysaccharide is a non-digestive and absorbable carbohydrate, which can be excreted from the body without causing hypertension, heart disease, obesity and so on. It is a healthy food material and can be used as a low-calorie food additive to produce low-calorie food and beverage. Recently, it has been found that pullulan polysaccharide can also proliferate bifidobacteria and treat constipation.
Used as food quality improver and thickener
Pullulan polysaccharide aqueous solution has a smooth, refreshing feeling, has the effect of improving the taste, so it can be used as food quality improver and thickener. Adding a small amount of pullulan polysaccharide in food processing can significantly improve food quality, such as fish cake can enhance flavor and quality, adding a small amount of pullulan polysaccharide in tofu can maintain the flavor of soybean and simplify the process; adding a small amount of pullulan polysaccharide in soy sauce, condiments, pickles, sugar-boiled fish and shrimp, delicious food can stabilize its viscosity, increase its stickiness and make its taste smoother.
