Basic Info

What is Zein?

Corn alcohol is the primary protein in corn gluten powder. Due to the fact that it is insoluble in water, does not have important amino acids such as lysine as well as tryptophan, and has problems such as color as well as scent, it is rarely used as a food resources. Nonetheless, zein alcohol has excellent film-forming residential or commercial properties, gelling buildings as well as strong oxidation resistance. With the advancement of high decolorization and deodorization innovation, its application variety has actually been greatly widened, making it a commonly made use of commercial basic material.

Corn gluten dish, also called corn gluten, is a spin-off of the manufacturing of starch from corn. The healthy protein web content of this sort of corn gluten powder is about 60%, yet as a result of the absence of crucial amino acids such as lysine and tryptophan, its biological value is reduced. Currently, it is mostly sold as low-value feed healthy protein, and also many factories do not even make any kind of use it., Allow it be discharged with the waste liquid, which not only creates a waste of sources, however additionally seriously pollutes the setting.

Zein Uses

Corn healthy protein, commonly called millet gum tissue, is the healthy protein in corn, white or light yellow granules or resinous compounds. Reasonably steady to warmth in completely dry state. It can be extensively used in the manufacture of plastics, coverings, adhesives, inks and also emulsifiers.

The zein solution has film-forming properties. When the solvent evaporates, the protein aggregates to form a smooth, transparent zein film with the characteristics of moisture resistance, oxygen resistance, and enteric solubility. Because zein is insoluble in water, lacks lysine and tryptophan, and has color and odor problems, it is rarely used as a food raw material. However, its unique solubility and film-forming properties make it widely used in medicine, hygiene and Food chemical industry and other fields have broad market prospects. At present, zein is mainly used as a pharmaceutical excipient, used as a tablet coating and sustained-release wall material, and can also be applied to candy coating, fruit and meat product fresh-keeping coating, oil embedding wall material, bioavailable Degradation of plastics, adhesives, etc.

Application of Zein

As the bioethanol industry continues to grow and the production of zein alcohol continues to increase, it is necessary to continuously develop new uses of this material based on different technologies. Because zeatol can form a tough, smooth, and hydrophobic film, it is widely used in the fields of industry, food, and medicine.

Application of Zein in Pharmaceutical Preparations

Existing water-soluble polymer materials mainly include natural water-soluble polymers extracted from natural animals and plants as raw materials, such as vegetable glue, animal glue, etc.; there are also chemically modified natural polymers, mainly modified starch and modified starch. Sexual cellulose, such as carboxymethyl starch, starch acetate, hydroxymethyl cellulose, carboxymethyl cellulose, etc.; and synthetic water-soluble polymer materials, such as polyethylene glycol, polyvinyl alcohol, etc.

In the present invention, after corn gluten is grafted with highly hydrophilic polyethylene glycol, the modified material can be completely dissolved in water. The expansion of fields has opened up new ways for the effective use of natural resources. At the same time, water-soluble zein can be widely used in the field of pharmaceutical preparations, especially as a new drug-loading material for insoluble drugs, which can effectively improve the bioavailability of insoluble drugs; it can be used as a long-circulation nanomicelle drug delivery system. Will produce greater social value and economic value.
