Abstract :
Transmission electron microscopy was employed to examine the hypothesis, reached earlier using rheological and thermal analysis, of the changing nature of a polysaccharide network with increasing levels of sugar. Mixtures of deacylated gellan (<1%) with low (0–20%) and high (80–85%) levels of sugar were prepared. Micrographs of the high sugar/gellan gels produced clear evidence of reduced crosslinking in the polysaccharide network, which exhibits a transition from rubber to glass-like consistency upon cooling.
