hemicellulose is a polysaccharide.--81.199.94.119 00:34, 28 Jul 2004 (UTC)

I've read that this material is generally edible Is there a most structurally strong version that is human digestable I'd like to make a high calorie edible grass like narrow diameter sugarcane where the structural hemipolystarch is human digestable yet strong

any notes on high AMU hemipolystarches that are digestable is appreciated —Preceding unsigned comment added by Beanangel300 (talkcontribs) 00:38, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
