  • In this paper, the compound coating of chitosan combined with β -cyclodextrin was prepared and applied in fresh grape preservation. (hindawi.com)
  • There is no report about the edible coating of chitosan combined with β -cyclodextrin at present, and we hope to explore a new method for fresh grape preservation. (hindawi.com)
  • In this experimental design, the effects of single coating of chitosan or β -cyclodextrin and compound coating of chitosan combined with β -cyclodextrin on grape preservation were investigated, respectively. (hindawi.com)

  • Discovery
  • (Revolutionary Discovery: Chitosan) The producers of chitosan-based products also try to claim that since a person taking chitosan continues to eat some sort of fats and is able to continue eating these types of food, the body does not crave such fattening foods nor is it starving or feeling any added sense of hunger. (vanderbilt.edu)
  • Following the discovery of chitin, the name "chitosan" emerged in the scene. (fitnesstipsforlife.com)
  • dose
  • An 8-week, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of 51 women found that use of chitosan at a dose of 1,200 mg twice daily slightly reduced LDL ("bad") cholesterol as compared to placebo, but did not affect total or HDL ("good") cholesterol levels. (tristarhealth.com)
