Production, Properties and Applications of Xylooligosaccharides (XOS): A Review
Asian Journal of Applied Chemistry Research,
Xylooligosaccharides derived from Xylan, significant component of hemicellulose in lignocellulosic plant biomass, are essential raw materials used in the food, pharmaceutical and agricultural industries. They find application in these industries due to their unique physicochemical properties such as pH stability, growth regulatory ability, and anti-allergic property. In addition, they have been shown to exhibit promising antimicrobial, anti-cancer, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. Xylooligosaccharides convert waste into valuable foods, pharmaceuticals, and agricultural products, promoting health, the economy, and the environment.
