1.Not involved in human metabolism.In animals, sheep can almost completely use xylose, pigs can use about 70%, the human body can not digest and use xylose, xylose can not be digested by digestive enzymes, but directly absorbed through the jejunal mucosa,Not metabolized in the body, excreted from the kidneys.Therefore, xylose is used as a non-caloric sweetener to meet the needs of diabetics and sweets but also those who are obese.The medical D-xylose absorption test uses the characteristic of xylose to check the intestinal absorption function of the human body. This method is simple, safe and easy to repeat.
2.Activate Bifidobacterium in the human intestinal tract and promote its growth. Bifidobacterium is a beneficial bacteria. The more the bacteria, the more beneficial to human health; the consumption of xylose can improve the microbial environment of the human body and improve the immunity of the body.
3.It is not used by microbes in the mouth and has some physiological functions of dietary fiber, which can lower serum cholesterol and prevent intestinal cancer.
4.The simultaneous intake of xylose and calcium can increase the body's absorption rate and retention rate of calcium, and prevent constipation.The compatibility of xylose with food is very good. Adding a small amount of xylose to the food can show good health effects.
5.Antioxidant and Maillard reaction of xylose
Foreign studies have shown that the MRPs produced by the reaction of xylose and amino acids can inhibit the oxidation of lipids, and can replace the chemical synthetic antioxidants such as "BHA, BHT, TBHQ".As a preventive food, especially oil-containing foods, the oxidative deterioration is more secure.At the same time, the process of MRPs formation is also the Maillard reaction process, which is an important source of processed food color (such as the color of baked goods) and various flavors, and is especially important in the production of seasonings.The rate of browning of five carbon sugar is 10 times that of six carbon sugar. The order of five carbon sugar browning speed is: ribose > arabinose > xylose, and the order of six carbon sugar browning is: galactose > mannose > glucose, reducingThe disaccharide has a large molecular weight and a slow reaction rate.
1.Low calorie sweetener.Suitable for obese and diabetic patients.It is also used for fat oxidation prevention doses, raw materials for making sauces, and preparation of spices such as pork by Maillard reaction.
2.Xylose has a high proliferative effect on bifidobacteria in the human intestine, and eating xylose can improve the microbial environment of the human body.Improve the body's immunity.The compatibility of xylose with food is very good. Adding a small amount of xylose to the food can show good health effects.The simultaneous intake of xylose and calcium can increase the body's absorption rate and retention rate of calcium, and prevent constipation.
3.Used to prepare xylitol.
4.Due to its obvious taste, it can be used in the spice and pet food industries.
5.It can be used to produce food flavoring agents because it can efficiently cause Maillard reaction.
6.Due to its obvious color-improving effect, it can be used for the coloration of golden brown in the food industry, such as the coloring of butter and bread.
7.Suitable for the preparation of flavors and fragrances.
