Abstract: Cereus triangularis is a cactus belonging to the sub-family of Cactoideae. Its cladodes are used in food decoction as a traditional medicine in Madagascar.The chemical structure of polysaccharide extracted from its cladodes is a type I arabinogalactan with a high molecular weight.In this study we have investigated its physicochemical properties, the rheological properties and prebiotic property of the oligo- or polysaccharides cladodes of Cereus triangularis. The rheological properties of this galactan are characteristic of a pseudoplastic fluid with a weak gel behavior. Storage modulus (G′) and loss modulus (G″) of the polysaccharide in 0.5 M NaCl and KCl 0.5 M revealed the viscoelastic properties.Its enzymatic degradation using a fungal galactanase led to the production of oligomers and low molecular weight polysaccharides which have been successfully tested as prebiotics.
