Coffee infusion mannans are acetylated polysaccharides containing single Galp and Araf residues as side chains of a beta-(1 --> 4)-Manp backbone. These mannans are structurally similar to the bioactive acetylated mannans from Aloe vera (AV). In this study, acetylated mannans were obtained from two coffee infusions prepared from light and dark roasted beans. These samples were tested for their immunostimulatory activity and compared with an extract of AV mannan and with locust bean gum (LBG… Expand
Structure-function relationship of immunostimulatory polysaccharides
Coffee polysaccharides, namely the arabinogalactans present in instant coffee and the galactomannans of coffee infusions have in vitro immunostimulatory activity, shown by an inflammatory response.Expand
Structural features of partially acetylated coffee galactomannans presenting immunostimulatory activity
Abstract The galactomannans purified from coffee infusions have been shown to present in vitro immunostimulatory activity on murine B- and T-lymphocytes. These properties have also been shownExpand
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
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
Influence of molecular weight on in vitro immunostimulatory properties of instant coffee.
TLDR
The surface expression of CD69 (early activation marker) on different lymphocyte sub-populations showed that the fraction with 1-5kDa was able to induce activation of B-lymphocytes, since all the other fractions failed, even when higher concentrations were used. 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
Polysaccharides in Coffee and Their Relationship to Health: An Overview
Abstract Sucrose is the predominant low-molecular-weight sugar in green coffee beans. Type II arabinogalactans (AGPs) and acetylated (galacto)mannans are the predominant polysaccharides. During theExpand
Structure, antioxidant and immunomodulatory activity of a polysaccharide extracted from Sacha inchi seeds.
TLDR
PVLP-1 possessed immune-enhancing bioactivities and could be functional food or adjuvant drug to improve biological immunity of immunodeficiency diseases and hypoimmunity. Expand
Isolation, structural elucidation, and immunoregulation properties of an arabinofuranan from the rinds of Garcinia mangostana.
TLDR
In vitro cell screening was performed and GMP90-1 was found to significantly enhance the phagocytic uptake of neutral red and improve the secreted level of nitric oxide, interleukin (IL)-6, IL-1β, and tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) of macrophages, which suggested that GMP80-1 with immunomodulatory effects could be considered as a potential immunommodulatory for immune diseases.

Characterization of polysaccharides from green and roasted Coffea arabica beans
Abstract Polysaccharides were sequentially extracted from green and roasted Coffea arabica beans with water (90 °C), EDTA, 0.05, 1, and 4 M NaOH and characterized chemically. Additionally, the beansExpand
Arabinosyl and glucosyl residues as structural features of acetylated galactomannans from green and roasted coffee infusions.
TLDR
Methylation analysis, hydrolysis with specific glycosidases and GC-EIMS analysis of the reduced and methylated oligosaccharides allowed to conclude that beta-(1-->4)-linked glucose residues are also structural features of green and roasted coffee galactomannans (6 and 1 mol%, respectively). Expand
Characterization of high molecular weight coffee fractions and their fermentation by human intestinal microbiota.
TLDR
The production of high amounts of acetate and propionate is in accordance with a role of these bacteria in the degradation of high M(r) components from coffee. Expand
Chemical characterization of galactomannans and arabinogalactans from two arabica coffee infusions as affected by the degree of roast.
TLDR
The degree of polymerization and the degree of branching of the galactomannans decreased with the increase of the DR, and the terminally linked galactosyl residues increased. Expand
Characterization of galactomannan derivatives in roasted coffee beverages.
In this work, the galactomannans from roasted coffee infusions were purified by 50% ethanol precipitation, anion exchange chromatography, and phenylboronic acid-immobilized Sepharose chromatography.Expand
Effect of roasting on the carbohydrate composition of Coffea arabica beans
Abstract Coffee beans (arabica) with different degrees of roast were sequentially extracted with water (90 °C, 1 h), water (170 °C, 30 min), and 0.05 M NaOH (0 °C, 1 h). The amount and composition ofExpand
Effect of roasting on degradation and structural features of polysaccharides in Arabica coffee beans.
TLDR
Polysaccharide degradation during roasting is more marked than previously documented, and points to roasting induced changes to the polysaccharides as major factors in the changing physicochemical profile of the coffee bean during processing. Expand
Polysaccharides of green Arabica and Robusta coffee beans.
TLDR
It is concluded that there was no detectable difference between the Arabica and Robusta varieties of this study in their absolute polysaccharide content or in the gross structural features of their galactomannans. Expand
Dietary fiber from coffee beverage: degradation by human fecal microbiota.
TLDR
The impact of coffee fiber on numerically dominant population groups of the intestinal microbiota was investigated by fluorescence in situ hybridization combined with flow cytometry (FISH-FC) and structural units composed of (1-->5)-linked arabinosyl residues were least degradable, whereas terminally linked arabinogalactans residues were easily utilized.
