This paper reports the efficient enzymatic synthesis of a homologous series of isomaltulose-derived oligosaccharides with degrees of polymerization ranging from 3 to 9 through the transglucosylation reaction using a dextransucrase from Leuconostoc mesenteroides B-512F. The total oligosaccharide yield obtained under optimal conditions was 41-42% (in weight with respect to the initial amount of isomaltulose) after 24-48 h of reaction. Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) structural characterization… CONTINUE READING
