High Molecular Weight Food Grade Chitosan Deacetylated Chitin ,
Food Thickening Agent
Quick Detail :
Chitosan series is extracted from chitin, insoluble in water but
soluble in dilute acid and absorbed by human body. As the first
derivate, it's chemical constitution is macromolecule alkalescent
polysaccharide polymer with cation. It has peculiar physical,
chemical properties and bioactive function.
Chitosan is extracted from crab shell or shrimp shell.
It is white or off-white amorphous translucent powder or small
flake, and it is insoluble in water or alkali solution, but is
soluble in most organic acid and part inorganic acid
Used as food additives, thickeners, preservatives fruits and
vegetables, fruit juice clarifying agent, forming agent, adsorbent,
and health food.
General name: chitosan; deacetylated chitin; poly glucosamine;
Scientific name: β-1,4-poly-D-glucosamine
Molecular formula : (C6H11NO4)n
CAS No. 9012-76-4
HS No. 2922 5000.
1. High moleculay weight chitosan means that this kind of chitosan
has higher viscosity and higher molecular weight than general
2. Viscosity of ordinary chitosan is less than 200mps.s, but
viscosity of high viscosity chitosan is about 500-5000 mpa.s.
3. High viscosity can be used in water treatment field, food
thickening agent, gel product, natural glue products, chitosan
white flake or powder
