- ... The shear and extensional rheology of β-glucan and mucin mixtures have been studied as to probe the functionality-related thickening effects of consumed β-glucan during food digestion. Mucins, the main viscosity-inducing components of oral and gastrointestinal fluids, can increase the shear viscosity of β-glucan solutions, e.g. when 3% mucin is added into 1% β-glucan, the shear viscosity increases ...
