Description: Aloe-emodin is an ingredient from aloe and Rheum palmatum. Aloe-emodin has anti-proliferative effects and induces cellular apoptosis. Aloe-emodin has anti-cancer activity in neuroectodermal tumors, nasopharyngeal carcinoma, lung squamous cell carcinoma, hepatoma cells, gastric cancer and prostate cancer. Aloe-emodin induces apoptotic cell death by oxidative stress and sustained c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) activation. Starches modified with octenyl succinic anhydride (OSA) have been used in a range of industrial applications, particularly as a food additive, for more than half a century. Interest in these products has grown in recent years as a result of new methods and applications becoming available. Due to a combination of OSA’s hydrophobic and steric contribution and starch’s peculiar highly branched macromolecular structure, these starch derivatives display useful stabilizing, encapsulating, interfacial, thermal, nutritional and rheological properties.
