1. What is konjac and konjac powder?
Konjac gum, sometimes called konjac powder, is a hydrogelatinous polysaccharide extracted from the underground tubers of the perennial araceae herb konjac, and its main component is glucomannan (KGM). When the konjac powder particles meet water, they dissolve into a translucent solution and release the konjac glucomannan polymer, which looks like jelly.
In fact, Konjac gum is a highly processed Konjac Powder that contains more than 90% KGM. Konjac Gum is a kind of soluble dietary fiber with high viscosity, which can also provide a certain amount of high-quality dietary fiber even if a small amount is added to food. Due to its high coefficient of water absorption and expansion, konjac gum can form a unique and stable water-holding network structure in the product, so it is added to meat products, dairy products and ice cream to replace fat and sugar to effectively reduce the content of fat and sugar.
Compared with konjac powder, konjac gum has higher purity, fineness (100 ~ 300 mesh), particle size, its dissolution rate and formation of gel reaction faster, is widely used in food, medicine, chemical industry, petroleum, cosmetics, textile printing and dyeing and other fields. Konjac gum is also approved as a food additive by the FOOD and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States, along with other plant source gums such as jelga gum, seaweed gum, carrageenan, pectin, guar gum, locust bean gum, acacia gum, yarrow gum, tamarind gum and so on.
