For the purpose of improving sweetness and a further study on the structure-sweetness relationship of steviol glycosides, transglycosylation of stevioside by a variety of commercial glucosidases was investigated. It was revealed that two alpha-glucosidases gave glucosylated products. Transglucosylation of stevioside by Pullulanase and pullulan exclusively afforded three products, 13-O-[beta-maltotriosyl-(1----2)-beta-D-glucosyl]-19-O-beta-D-g luc osyl- steviol (1), 13-O-[beta-maltosyl-(1----2… CONTINUE READING
