Comparative study of carbohydrates in the two major species of jute corchorus capsularis and corchorus olitorius



Comparative study of carbohydrates in the two major species of jute corchorus capsularis and corchorus olitorius



Journal of the Science of Food & Agriculture 48(3): 305-310



Unretted and retetted bark and stem of Corchorus olitorius L and retted stem of C. capsularis L, two species of jute, were analysed for ash, lignin, low molecular weight carbohydrates and polysaccharides. The results are compared with those from C. capsularis published earlier. The unretted bark and stem of C. olitorius contained less low molecular weight carbohydrates than the corresponding fractions of C. capsularis. C. olitorius bark contained less cellulose and more hemicellulose than C. capsularis, particularly after retting. Xylans isolated from the retted fibre and stem of C. olitorius were found to have a similar composition to those from C. capsularis.
