Konjac gum is extracted from the tubers of konjac. Konjac is a perennial herb of the genus konjac in the araceae family. The main component of konjac gum is glucomannan, a non-ionic water-soluble polymer polysaccharide. It has mutual solubility and synergy with most anion, cationic, and non-ionic edible gums. It’s natural, healthy and safe properties are widely used in foods such as beverages, jelly, ice cream, meat products, and pasta products.
Konjac gum is a non-ionic water-soluble polymer polysaccharide. It is rich in hydroxyl groups and is easily soluble in water. After absorbing moisture, it can swell 80 to 100 times. It has the characteristics of a non-Newtonian fluid. At the same time, so far, the viscosity of 1% konjac gum sol is the highest among the plant-based water-soluble edible gums found. And compared with additives such as xanthan gum, guar gum, locust bean gum, konjac gum has a considerable advantage. It is not affected by the salt in the food system. When applied to food, it can improve the physical properties of the food, increase the viscosity of the food, give the food a smooth and comfortable feeling, and have the effect of stabilizing the emulsified state and the suspended state.
Konjac gum has the functional characteristics of adhesion, water absorption, thickening, emulsification, etc. When it is used in meat emulsion products with the double spiral winding mechanism of carrageenan, its thickening and water absorption properties effectively prevent the meat emulsion products from separating out. Water-soluble and oil-separable improve the cohesiveness of meat emulsion products. The konjac gum aqueous dispersion is heated and then cooled to obtain a solution with pseudoplastic fluid characteristics, and the pH value of the solution is between 5.0-7.0.
Konjac gum is one of the soluble dietary fibers, and the current position is the best. It has physiological functions such as weight loss, laxative, lowering blood fat, and lowering blood pressure. It plays an important role in the prevention and auxiliary treatment of obesity, intestinal cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and other modern wealthy diseases.
