NOVELTY – The process for obtaining inulin concentrate (fructose polysaccharide) involves reduction of temperature and physical separation. Tubercles of chicory are used as raw material and the following stages are involved in the process: (a) pre-processing; (b) extraction; (c) separation; (d) freezing; (e) de freezing; (f) separation; (g) drying; and (h) packing. USE – For obtaining inulin concentrate (fructose polysaccharide). DESCRIPTION OF DRAWING(S) – The drawing provides a block diagram of the details of the process. It contains non-English language text.
A11 (Polysaccharides; natural rubber; other natural polymers (only a restricted range of (modified) natural polymers are included. Thus starch would be excluded, but chemically modified starch included).)
