Soluble and insoluble dietary fibre.
Type of monosaccharides.
Configuration of glycosidic bond.
Emicellulose is made of arabinoxylan.
Linear polyXilane beta 1-4 bonds branched with arabinose.
Xilanase to favour leavening of wholewheat bread.
Pectins are the main dietary fibre in fruits.
Pectins are polymer of galacturonic acid differently methylated.
Solubility, ripening effect and processing effect.
Inulin is a polymer of fructose with β 2-1 bonds.
The first residue is glucose.
Inulin is present in chicory roots with a polymerization degree of around 50.
Inulin has largely been replaced by FOS (fructo oligo saccharides) obtained from enzymatic cleavage of inulin.
Short fragments are even more soluble and ferment more rapidly than inulin.
Short chain and long chain FOS are used for different technological purposes.
