Product Description
Amorphophallus Japonica is consisted of mannose and glucose molecules combined in a mole ratio of 1.6:1.0. It is a slightly branched polysaccharide connected by 1-4 linkages and has an average molecular weight ranging from 200,000 to 2,000,000.

Manufacturing
Acetyl groups along the Amorphophallus Japonica backbone contribute to its solubility and are located, on average, at every 9 to 19 sugar units.

Manufacturing

Shimizu 's unique high-purifying process is carried out in a large-scale extraction plants. The Amorphophallus Japonica tubers are first pulverized, and then the collected Amorphophallus Japonica mannan-glucose particles are polished in order to dislodge and extract noxious materials adhering to them. This process yields a refined, high performance Amorphophallus Japonica mannan-glucose with a high degree of purity that improves product solubility, stability and overall functionality.
The particles are tasteless, odorless and white in color.
