Curdlan is a naturally occurring polysaccharide, a linear β-(1→3)-glucan, produced by a bacterium known as Alcaligenes faecalis. It's unique among polysaccharides due to its ability to form a firm, heat-stable gel under certain conditions, specifically when it is heated in suspension at temperatures above 80°C.
This biopolymer exhibits a triple-helical structure in neutral and alkaline aqueous solutions, which is essential for its gelation properties. The gel formed by curdlan has distinctive characteristics, such as thermal stability, non-melting behavior, and the ability to maintain its structure even in the presence of salts or sugars, which sets it apart from most other polysaccharides.
Due to its unique characteristics, curdlan has wide-ranging applications. It is used in the food industry as a texturizer, gelling agent, and stabilizer, and it also has potential uses in the biomedical field, including drug delivery and tissue engineering.
