Pullulan


Overview

Pullulan is natural water-soluble polysaccharide, produced from starch or sugar by fermentation. It is colorless, tasteless, odorless, resistant to oil and unaffected by small thermal variations. It has many applications, such as ití»s usage in medicine, food, and cosmetics industries.

In medicinal applications, pullulan can be formed into capsules, tablets, non-crystalline substances, plasma, vaccine and wound sutures.

Pullulan plays a role as a preservative, quality improver, emulsifier, forming and thickening agent in the food industry.
Pullulan has an additional application in the health food sector: since the human body can only digest one-third of the glucose formed by pullulan, the leftover two-thirds are formed into isomaltose that cannot be digested and absorbed. Isomaltose stimulates the growth of bifidobacterium. Bifidobacterium is a micro-bacterium that is beneficial to the digestive system by: synthesizing the organic acids a body needs, lowering the intestinal pH and inhibiting the growth of other harmful micro-organisms.

In cosmetic applications, pullulan can be formed into shampoo, lotion, and facial masks.
