Phytoglycogen is a natural polysaccharide produced in the form of dense, 35 nm diameter nanoparticles by some varieties of plants such as sweet corn. The highly-branched, dendrimeric structure of phytoglycogen leads to interesting and useful properties such as softness and deformability of the particles, and a strong interaction with water. These properties… CONTINUE READING
