The Properties of β-Glucans from Different Fractions of Hull-Less Barley
Crude β-glucans were prepared from hull-less barley roller-milled fractions by aqueous sodium carbonate ( pH10). β-Glucan preparations from hull-less barley roller-milled fractions had high purity (90.88-95.04%). The Mw of β-glucan preparations from roller-milled fractions was ranging from 117,600 to 852,400 g/mol, For the same hull-less barley cultivar, β-glucan from flour had higher Mw than shorts and bran, and β-glucan preparations from bran had the lowest Mw.
