Pure ferulic acid description

Ferulic acid is an aromatic acid ubiquitous in the plant kingdom. It is a component of suberin. It rarely exists in a free state in plants, and mainly forms a combined state with oligosaccharides, polyamines, lipids and polysaccharides.

Ferulic acid powder purpose

Ferulic acid has many health functions, such as scavenging free radicals, antithrombotic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, inhibiting tumor, preventing and treating hypertension, heart disease, enhancing sperm vitality, etc; It has low toxicity and is easy to be metabolized by human body. It can be used as a food preservative and has a wide range of uses in food, medicine and other aspects.

Ferulic acid functions and applications

1. Lowering blood fat: ferulic acid can competitively inhibit the activity of valonate-5-pyrophosphate dehydrogenase in the liver, and inhibit the synthesis of cholesterol in the liver, so as to achieve the purpose of lowering blood fat.

2. Bacteriostatic effect: the inhibitory effect of ferulic acid on bacteria is more extensive. It has been found that ferulic acid can inhibit the proliferation of pathogenic bacteria such as Shigella sonnei, Pneumonia, Enterobacter, Escherichia coli, Citrobacter, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and 11 kinds of microorganisms that cause food corruption.

3. Application in food industry: ferulic acid is widely used in medicine, and has been approved as a food additive in some countries. Japan has allowed the use of food antioxidants, while the United States and some European countries allow the use of some herbs, coffee, vanilla beans, etc. with high ferulic acid content as antioxidants. Ferulic acid is mainly used in the food industry to prepare natural vanillin, antioxidant, preservative, cross-linking agent and function promoter.

Ferulic acid preparation method

1. Extract from plant raw materials with high content of ferulic acid, such as angelica sinensis, vanilla beans, wheat bran and rice bran, and then obtain ferulic acid through alkaline hydrolysis or enzymatic hydrolysis.

2. Chemical synthesis method: Vanillin and malonic acid are used as raw materials to synthesize through Kno - evngael reaction.

3. Biosynthesis: some microorganisms are used to transform the precursor of ferulic acid to obtain ferulic acid.
