What Is Curdlan?
Curdlan is a kind of neutral water-insoluble microbial exopolysaccharide, which has thermal-gelation property and has numerous applications as a gelling agent in the food, construction, and pharmaceutical industries.

In 1996, U. S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approve and allow curdlan gum to be added directly in food as a food additive. In 2006, curdlan gel has been approved by the Chinese administration as a new food additive.

In 2008, Yiming, as a professional curdlan gum supplier, had built its second manufacturing plant in Shuyang, Jiangsu Province, thus realizing the mass production of curdlan (over 500 tons/year). For now, curdlan gum has been widely applied in the food processing industry (e.g. bean products, surimi products, flour products, artificial seafood, meat products, etc.) as a gelling agent, water-holding agent, film-forming agent, thickener, binder, and stabilizer, and can improve food texture, elasticity, and water-holding property.

Cordlan Physical properties
Cordlan is mostly powder, insoluble in water and alcohol, soluble in alkaline solution and dimethyl sulfite.

The suspension of cordlan can form a colorless and odorless gel after heating. Its gel strength is high. Under cold or high temperature sterilization conditions, the gel performance is basically unchanged in the range of Ph2~11.

Cordlan Chemical properities
Cordlan has unique gel characteristics. Its aqueous solution can form thermoreversible gel and thermoirreversible gel according to the heating temperature. It can be used as a swelling agent or a substitute for natural vegetable gum when preparing foods that require thickening product.

Cordlan is degraded into oligosaccharides by enzymatic degradation or chemical methods, which increases water solubility, expands the scope of application, and improves biological activity. The degradation of Kotlan polysaccharides to curdlan oligomers (CRDO) leads to the destruction of tertiary structure and the decrease of molecular weight, and its water solubility is greatly enhanced.

Curdlan FAQs
Is curdlan safe?
Various tests have shown that curdlan is safe. The LD50-oral rat is greater than 10g/kg. In 1996, U. S. FDA approve and allow curdlan gum to add directly in food as food additive. In 2006, it has been approved by Chinese administration as a new food additive.

What are the storage conditions of curdlan?
Curdlan has a limited shelf life (normally 1 year). You need to keep it at cool temperatures or refrigerated until you use it. Once it is opened, you need to wrap it tightly and store it in the freezer.

What are the applications of curdlan?
At present, Curdlan can be widely used in the food processing industry as a gelling agent, water-holding agent, film-forming agent, thickener, binder, and stabilizer, and can improve food texture, elasticity, and water holding property.

What are the characteristics of curdlan?
Its unique characteristic is its ability to form a firm, resilient and thermo-irreversible gel when heated in an aqueous suspension higher than 80°C. Also, the curdlan gel does not melt even when it is heated to above 100°C. Moreover, curdlan gel is stable against freezing and thawing.

Re: COE prices $100,000

Totally get it, my daughter just got her license a little over a month ago and is now really excited about the prospect of going back to the US because she really wants her own car. There I could see it happening but here we drive a used Hyundai. It’s a nice car, not beat up and not old at all but it’s just too expensive to justify owning anything nicer here. It’s not even about having the means, it just doesn’t make sense when you consider all of the other costs that you have to pay in addition to the cost of the car.

And that is the thing many in Singapore do not understand… having financial means does not equate to being able to enjoy it. Singapore is not a place where you get bang for your buck — and it’s not just expensive, it’s also greatly limited in terms of .....

❰❰ Quote:The difference in places like the US is that the public transport system is not nearly as advanced as it is in Singapore so a lot of times if you don’t have a car you quite literally have no way of getting around. Whereas in Singapore the problem is the converse where we have too many cars and not enough room on the road so they need to price things so high that only those who truly truly are willing to make the financial sacrifice are able to get a car.

If Singapore wanted to make car ownership "fair", they'd dump the COE system and go to a simple lottery. They know exactly how many COE's will be issued. A lottery would permit poorer people to buy a car OR sell the COE to someone else willing to pay for it. Time limits could be set for lottery winners... use it or sell it .....

Re: Fridge Leaking; (a) repair person ? or (b) buy 2nd hand ?

I think depends on:

1. Cost of repair for the leak
2. Possibility of recurrence
3. Age of current fridge

vs cost of a new set

I am not certain if you should buy a 2nd hand one because it's used and does not carry a warranty and you would end up repairs again.

Re: Neighbour's helper bringing foreign worker home

Don’t you worry about what might happen to the helper if your neighbor gets truly upset about it? I personally wouldn’t be able to live with myself if I knew I was the reason the helper got sent back to her home country, they work very hard and for very little money, I can’t help but feel for them.

And if that foreign worker likes what he sees in the house that can afford to keep his GF in luxury and not in a Workers cramped, smelly workers quarters and decides to help himself behind the helper's back. Still feel sorry for the helper when 'she' is accused of a theft she knows nothing about? I have to side with smoulder on this. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and the helper will possibly have learned a hard lesson, or a lesson. In either case, one she .....

Re: What’s the deal with HDB cats?

they would claim those are community cats if pushed. I think the HDB is turning a blind eye.
