Refining of amino sugar and acidic sugarProducts

Amino Sugar and Acidic Sugar Refining

As amino sugars such as glucosamine and acidic sugars such as uronic acids have an ionic functional group, they can adsorb to ion exchange resins.
This enables the separation from neutral sugars and other non-adsorbent impurities.
