Amylopectin is a glucose-based, highly-branched polysaccharide which together with amylose makes starch. The glucosidic bonds of amylopectin are α-1,4 in the glucan chain and α-1,6 at the branch points. Amylopectin from maize differs in structure form amylopectin from other plant species and is used in the study of the development of starches.
Prebiotic food components typically consist of polysaccharides and oligosaccharides. They can be found in milk (galactooligosaccharides or GOS) and plants with dietary fibers, and they are often prod...
