Download citation | studies on the mucil | okra fruits and baobab leaves are just two examples of foods used to give a mucilaginous quality to west african food dishes the mucilages were extracted from both foods and purified preliminary studies have been conducted to characterise the mucil. The total synthesis of the unsaturated disaccharide, lepidimoide 4-deoxy-beta-l- threo-hex-4-enopyranuronosyl-(1--2)-l-rhamnopyranose sodium salt, has been carried out from d-glucose and l-rhamnose (tetrahedron lett 1993, 34, 2653), but the process is very long and complicated a method for more easily producing. The emulsifying properties of extracted okra (abelmoschus esculentus l) mucilage at different maturity indices (1, 2 and 3) were studied the okra mucilage was prepared using water extraction method and was determined their viscosity at different temperature (10, 30 50 and 70°c), water holding capacity ( whc). In this present study we have developed the protocol for highly purity dna isolation from the fresh leaves of abelmoschus esculentus and pcr analysis for resultant dna okra is quite difficult to work because of highly acidic polysaccharides (mucilage) and polyphenols present in whole plant, mainly in leaves & fruits. Summary: okra (abelmoschus esculentus) is a perishable fruit with an extremely short post-harvesting period in the present study we have investigated the development of edible films obtained from mucilage of rejected okra fruits the obtained okra mucilage was characterized by ftir, percentage yield, swelling index. In the present study the aqueous seed extract of okra mucilage was used to examined for alpha amylase inhibition activity different concentrations of extracts were incubated with enzyme substrate solution.
The mucilages were extracted and preliminary studies conducted to characterise them physically the ph values of a 1% solution of the mucilages varied from 6 - 7 for okra and taro, 7 –7 for jew's mellow, and 5 -6 for fenugreek, depending upon extraction conditions the highest viscosity was observed in okra. Okra, also called gumbo or lady's finger, is a tall, flowering plant that is cultivated in tropical, subtropical, and temperate regions around the world it has been prized for centuries for its edible green pods, which transform into a thick, gooey mucilage once cooked however, many cultures like to cook okra. Extraction of mucilages from the leaves of hibiscus and pods of okra (ladies finger) was carried out by a cold maceration process the extracted mucilages were subjected to various physicochemical properties for its suitability as an excipient in the formulation of tablet dosage form different concentrations (10, 8, 5, 2 and. Naproxen sodium tablets were prepared by using okra gum as a binder and were evaluated for the higher binding ability of okra gum probably linked with its chemical composition as it mainly farooq, u malviya, r sharma, pk extraction and characterization of okra mucilage as pharmaceutical.
Okra pods are known as “mucilaginous,” which results in a slimy or gooey mouthfeel when cooked this “mucilage” or slime contains soluble fiber that we can digest some folks enjoy this texture, while others try to mask the slippery nature of the pods keeping the pods intact and briefly cooking (think stir. Wet granulation method and direct compression by using okra mucilage as binding agent the powdered mucilaginous substances were isolated from ae by ethanol precipitation method  and identification tests of pectin in the natural mucilaginous extracts were done  the identification tests shows the presence of.
Natural drag reducing agent was prepared and extracted from okra fruit and it was tested in a closed loop of turbulence water flowing system flow tests were conducted using water as the carrying liquid the experimental work starts by pumping water from reservoir tank that had mixed with mucilage was pumped with six. Determination of viscosity the viscosities of samples of the okra mucilage were determined on brookfield rheometer (dv-iii + model, brookfield engineering, usa) using cpe 40 according to the method described by ogaji. It's not snot: animals make a glycoprotein-based complex mucus, whereas plants make mucilage okra mucilage is produced in large specialized cells scattered throughout the plant body, and it pours forth from chopped pods, clinging persistently to knives and cutting boards although okra slime is soluble. Figure 1: okra fruit 735891fig002 figure 2: chemical structure of polysaccharide of okra mucilage propranolol hydrochloride was chosen as a model drug in this study it is an antihypertensive, antianginal, and antiarrhythmic, agent and is also used for the treatment of migraine propranolol hcl has a.
Okra gum contains random coil polysaccharides consisting of galactose, rhamnose, and galacturonic acid (figure 2) the repeating units of the gum were found to be (1-2)-rhamnose and (1-4)-galacturonic acid residues with disaccharide side chains and a degree of acetylation (da = 58)  when extracted in water, these.

Key words: abelmoschus spp accessions brabender viscograph e mucilage okra introduction mucilages are water-soluble polysaccharides inherent in several plant species and in some microorganisms (national academies press, 2006 woolfe et al, 1977), generating tremendous interest in recent. Chia seeds, flaxseeds, and agar agar all contain a fiber called mucilage that swells up and becomes gelatinous and gooey when it makes contact with water flaxseeds chia seeds psyllium aloe vera kelp okra figs agar agar (algae) cactus pads (aka nopales—a great wild edible) fenugreek. In the present communication, the synthesis and characterization of okra mucilage, a food grade and water-soluble polysaccharide, based-materials are described okra mucilage has been modified by grafting acrylamide (aam) for developing the new green polymeric materials of specialty applications. Section the testing sections were 15 m long and it was located about 50 times of pipe diameter to ensure the turbulent flows are fully developed before the testing point two sets of baumer differential pressure gauge were used to detect the pressure drop in pipelines with maximum differential pressure reading up to 010.
