1. Using GDL as a protein coagulant to produce tofu, the texture of tofu is white and tender, the bitter taste of useless brine or gypsum, no protein loss, high tofu yield, and easy to use.

2.It is used for the production of yogurt or cheese. In industrial use, the gel strength of milk formed by acidification with GDL is about twice that of the fermented type. The amount of 0.025% to 1.5% added to the milk can make the product reach the required level. The pH of the curd and the milk gel prepared by incubation at 30°C with the addition of 3% had a similar structure to the gel prepared by lactic acid fermentation.

At the same time, GDL also has emulsifying and antiseptic effects, thereby improving the quality of canned meat. , the maximum dosage is 0.3%.
