It is a highly branched polysaccha­ ride closely resembling glycogen, formed by the reaction between ethylene oxide and amylopectin in the presence of an alkaline cat­ alyst. The molecular weight and molar substitution can be adjusted by the degree of substitution of hydroxyl groups with hydroxyethyl groups at the C2, C3, and C6 positions on the glucose molecule. The greater the substitution on position C2 in relation to C6 (C2:C6 ratio), the slower the degradation of the molecule by a­mylase [116].
