How To Fabricate Mucilage Nanofibers By Electrospinning Machine?
Basil seed mucilage (BSM) extracted from basil (Ocimum basilicum L.) seeds that grow in Asia, Africa, and America has been applied to fabricate nanofibers in previous studies. Because of the potential applications of the mucilage for thickening and stabilizing, it is a new source of edible hydrocolloid as a functional ingredient in the food industry. However, BSM cannot be spun alone, and PVA is the most commonly used electrospinning aid agent for BSM electrospinning. Mucilage nanofibers can be utilized as a food additive.
