Product Description

Food And Pharmaceutical Grade 9057-02-7 Pure Pullulan Powder For Confectionery And Capsule


                                        -------APIs & Food Additives



Pullulan is natural water-soluble polysaccharide, fermented by Auveobasidium Pullulans. It consists mainly of maltotriose units linked through α-1, 6 - glucosidic bonds. The average molecular weight is 2×105 Da. Pullulan can be developed into various products.


Pullulan is an excellent filmformer, producing a film which is heat sealable with good oxygen barrier properties. It can be used widely in both the pharmaceutical and food industries, such as encapsulating agents, adhesives, thickening, and extending agent.


Pullulan has been used as a food ingredient for over 20 years in Japan. It has Generally Regarded As Safe .

Pullulan is non-toxic, non-mutagenic, odorless, tasteless, and edible.

Pullulan powders are white and non-hygroscopic and dissolve readily in hot or cold water. Pullulan solutions are of relatively low viscosity. The viscosity of pullulan solutions is stable to heating, changes in pH, and most metal ions, including sodium chloride.


Pullulan is safe, heat-resisting, salt-tolerant, acid and alkali resistant, with good viscosity and heat stability, strong plasticity; it can form film and has good gas isolation and strong moisture permeability. It is also with adhesiveness, adhesion, decomposability. It can improve physical property; maintain moisture, forming property, spinning property and others.

In the nature, Pullulan can be degraded and used by microorganism and doesn’t cause environmental pollution, so that it honored as pollution-free plastic. It has widely application in cosmetic, medicine, food, chemical industry, environmental protection, and pesticides.


In food industry, Pullulan is usually used as preservative, forming agent, quality improver, emulsifier, thickening agent, etc.

Pullulan can be used as either an innovative or decorative film or used in granule form for:


Tabletting: Pullulan is an excellent tabletting excipient.

Pan coating: Pullulan with its excellent adhesive properties and extremely low viscosity is ideally suited for pan-coating chewing gum,chocolate and candies. Agglomeration: Pullulan has about double the adhesive strength of food starch. This property combined with its lack of flavor enables it to be used effectively in typical agglomeration processes.

Sauces and dressings: Due to its ‘adhesive properties’ use of granular pullulan in sauces improves their ‘on product’ retention without unduly increasing sauce viscosity.

Innovative soft candy: Incorporation of 2-3% Pullulan, enables innovative soft chewy candies to be made by a cold extrusion process without resorting to conventional boiling. This enables heart sensitive materials to be used in these products.

Coatings: Pullulan solutions which are odorless and flavorless can be used as a coating for a wide range of food products to improve appearance, reduce blemishes and increase shelf life.

Capsules: Pullulan can be formed into capsules for use with pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products. Its non-animal origin ensures there are no safely concerns with consumers and it is suitability for all consumers groups.


In pharmaceuticals industry, it may be used for producing capsule, tablet, non-crystalline medicine, haemostatic, plasma volume expander, X-ray perspective contrast media; toxoid and vaccine protective agent; wound suture line; artificial organs and blood anticoagulant medical materials, etc. Compared with other capsule, pullulan capsule is with obvious advantages: ① The oxygen permeability of pullulan capsule is nearly 1/8 of gelatin capsule, 1/300 of HPMC capsule, so that it can effectively protect the contents from oxidation and prolong storage period; ② Its transparency corresponds to animal capsule, so that the filled contents are clearly visible; ③ It doesn’t contain animal protein and fat, so that it is hard to breed microorganism and with stable quality; ④ it doesn’t contain animal ingredients, and is free of worries for bovine spongiform encephalopathy, foot-and-mouth disease and other zoonoses; ⑤ It is made by nature vegetal materials so that it is with no limit in religion or vegetarian diet.


In cosmetics industry, it can be used for producing incense powder, shampoo, astringent, face mask, skin protective agent, hairspray and others.
