Stachyose Uses

As one non-reducing oligosaccharide, stachyose, under normal conditions, will not react with other chemical substances such as food additives and host crystal, nor affect special smells and flavour of other substances; therefore, it is a perfect functional ingredient. Human intestines can’t digest galactosidase, stachyose will not be destroyed in digestive Read more…

Stachyose synthesis in leaves of Cucurbita pepo

An enzyme synthesizing stachyose, galactinol-raffinose galactosyltransferase (EC2.4.1.67), has been purified ca 40-fold from mature leaves of Cucurbita pepo using ammonium sulphate precipitation, Sephadex gel filtration and DEAE-Sephadex gel chromatography. The purified enzyme fraction was separated from all but 2 % of the total,α-galactosidase activity extracted from the tissue. The enzyme Read more…

FOOD RES INT: Stachyose improves the intestinal barrier function of sterile mice after human fecal transplantation and reduces intestinal inflammation

The colonization mode of tract microorganisms in young children directly affects the diversity of microorganisms, physiological development and the development of the immune system, which in turn has a long-term impact on the risk of disease. Bacteroides and Enterobacter are the dominant intestinal microbes in 3-month-old breastfed infants, while the Read more…

Phytochemistry

An enzyme synthesizing stachyose, galactinol-raffinose galactosyltransferase (EC2.4.1.67), has been purified ca 40-fold from mature leaves of Cucurbita pepo using ammonium sulphate precipitation, Sephadex gel filtration and DEAE-Sephadex gel chromatography. The purified enzyme fraction was separated from all but 2 % of the total,α-galactosidase activity extracted from the tissue. The enzyme was optimally active at Read more…

The function and application of stachyose

Stachyose is a tetrasaccharide naturally occurring in nature composed of two α-galactoses combined with α-1,6 glycosidic bonds on the glucosyl side of sucrose. Widely distributed in legumes and some Labiatae plants, it belongs to the non-reducing functional oligosaccharides of the raffinose genus galactosides. It can significantly promote the proliferation of Read more…
