Description: Pullulan is a neutral polymer composed of α-(1,6)-linked maltotriose residues, which in turn are composed of three glucose molecules connected to each other by an α-(1,4) glycosidic bond. It is non-toxic, non-immunogenic, non-carcinogenic and non-mutagenic in nature. The structure of pullulan consist unique linkage pattern with two α-(1 → 4) and one α-(1 → 6) glycosidic bonds in maltotriose repeating units (G3). Pullulan endows distinctive physical traits due to the presence of nine hydroxyl groups on glucopyranose rings of G3 units. It can be derivatized in various forms by substituting these hydroxyl groups to enhance its utility in biomedical applications. Beta-alanine is a non-proteogenic amino acid that is produced endogenously in the liver. Beta-alanine has been identified as the rate-limiting precursor to carnosine synthesis, and has been consistently shown to increase levels of carnosine in human skeletal muscle. Over the past ten years, beta-alanine has grown to become one of the most popular sports nutrition ingredients.
