Researchers at Purdue University have developed a low pH, low sugar gel from arabinoxylan complexes in corn. It is non-toxic, biocompatible, and increases satiety upon consumption. This novel soluble gel is combined in a beverage for heightened post-meal energy and encapsulation and slow distribution of bioactives. These properties make these gels well suited for food, biomedical, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic applications.

Advantages:

-Low pH
-Increased post-meal energy
-Controlled release of bioactive

Potential Applications:

-Food and beverages
-Nutraceuticals for drug delivery
-Cosmetics
