Cellodextrin

Structural description

Cellodextrins are glucose polymers of two or more glucose monomers resulting from the breakdown of cellulose (from cotton linters as raw material).

Cellodextrins consist of repeating β(1-4) linked D-glucose monomers. The most common cellodextrins are:

  • cellobiose (DP=2)
  • cellotriaose (DP=3)
  • cellotetraose (DP=4)
  • cellopentaose (DP=5)
  • cellohexaose (DP=6)

The degree of polymerization (DP) indicates the number of linked glucose monomers it contains.

Activities and Uses

Cellodextrins are found a wide range of applications in functional food (probiotic benefits), pharmaceutical and chemical industries as well as agriculture and environmental engineering.
