Example text

Together with pectin, the hemicelluloses form the matrix of the plant cell wall in which are enmeshed cellulose fibers. The hemicelluloses are not digested in the small intestine but are broken down by microorganisms in the colon more readily than cellulose. Heteroglycans — Polysaccharides that hydrolyze to two, three, or more monosaccharides. They have prefixes of di-, tri- , and so on to indicate the number of different types of sugar residues. Hexoses — Monosaccharides with each molecule containing six carbon atoms.

1. Galactans — Polysaccharides which, on hydrolysis, give galactose. They occur in wood and in many algae. The most important galactan is agar. Galactomannans — Polysaccharides that have both galactose and mannose in the chain, in varying proportions. Guar gum (guaram) is a representative example. Galactomannans are part of the hemicellulose fraction of the plant cell wall. Glucofructans — Linear polymers with both fructose and glucose in the chain. They are found in the hemicellulose section of the cell wall and form the storage polysaccharides in many temperateclimate grasses.

Solubility Solubility is a major factor in the nutritional properties of dietary fiber, generally speaking. So what determines whether a particular fiber fraction is soluble or insoluble? 3). Many different structures are possible with different linkage geometries and different monosaccharide units. 14 This is illustrated by comparing two forms of poly-D-glucose familiar from other chapters of this book — cellulose, which is insoluble, and the water-soluble β-glucans from barley and oat bran. Cellulose has exclusively β(1−4) linkages, whereas the β-glucans have mixed β(1−4) and β(1−3) linkages.
