Abstract Galactomannans from locust bean gum (LBG) are polysaccharides containing single Gal p residues as side chains in a β-(1 → 4)-Man p backbone. Nevertheless, sugars other than mannose and galactose are always detected, namely, arabinose and glucose, although in small amounts. In order to demonstrate that LBG galactomannans contain other structural features than those usually reported in literature, the galactomannans from LBG obtained from two different commercial sources were submitted… Expand
Mass spectrometry characterization of an Aloe vera mannan presenting immunostimulatory activity.
TLDR
The comparison with other galactomannans allowed to infer that lower branching, shorter chains, and higher acetylation seems to promote the immunostimulatory activity attributed to these polysaccharides. Expand
Fractionation and structural characterization of LiCl-DMSO soluble hemicelluloses from tomato.
TLDR
The present extraction and purification scheme allow the recovery of several populations of acetylated hemicellulose families which emphasize the structural diversity and complexity of these polysaccharides. Expand
Physicochemical properties and structural characterization of a galactomannan from Sophora alopecuroides L. seeds.
TLDR
The amorphous nature of F25 was revealed with higher crystallinity and crystallite size compared to other polysaccharides, which could be potentially applied in food and pharmaceutical industries. Expand
Galactomannans in Coffee
Abstract Galactomannans are the most abundant constituents of coffee beans. Generically, the structure of these polysaccharides consists of a linear backbone of β-(1→4)-linked d -mannose residues,Expand
Thermal stability of spent coffee ground polysaccharides: galactomannans and arabinogalactans.
TLDR
The roasting of galactomannans at 200 °C promoted their solubility in water upon alkali extraction and neutralisation and the formation of new glycosidic linkages, with occurrence of 2-, 6-, 2,3, 2,6-, 3,6, 3,4,6-linked mannose residues, and terminally-linked glucose residues, observed by methylation analysis.

In vitro digestibility and fermentability of fructo-oligosaccharides produced by Aspergillus ibericus
Abstract The bifidogenic potential of fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) produced by a newly isolated strain – Aspergillus ibericus was studied. Their activity was compared to FOS produced byExpand
Structural polymeric features that contribute to in vitro immunostimulatory activity of instant coffee.
TLDR
Results show the relevance of single arabinose residues, present at the non-reducing end of polymeric compounds, to the coffee stimulatory activity in cells mediating innate and acquired immunity. Expand
In vitro digestibility and fermentability of fructo-oligosaccharides produced by Aspergillus ibericus
The bifidogenic potential of fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) produced by a newly isolated strain – Aspergillus ibericus was studied. Their activity was compared to FOS produced by AureobasidiumExpand
Extractability and structure of spent coffee ground polysaccharides by roasting pre-treatments.
The coffee residue left after the preparation of the brew (spent coffee grounds - SCG) is very rich in polysaccharides, namely galactomannans and arabinogalactans, which are polymers that can be usedExpand
In vitro macrophage nitric oxide production by Pterospartum tridentatum (L.) Willk. inflorescence polysaccharides.
TLDR
The treatment of pectic polysaccharides with endo-polygalacturonase showed that type-I and type-II arabinogalactans, as well as low molecular weight galacturonans and xyloglucans, may also contribute to macrophage NO production. Expand

Arabinosyl and glucosyl residues as structural features of acetylated galactomannans from green and roasted coffee infusions.
TLDR
