Abstract: We studied the effect of adding 5 g/100 mL glucose on the color and residual water content of freeze-dried hemoglobin and explored the influences of pH, temperature and NaCl concentration on the stability of freeze-dried hemoglobin. The results showed that glucose could improve the L* and a* values of hemoglobin, and decrease the relative content of methemoglobin. Besides, glucose could significantly enhance the stability of hemoglobin to pH, temperature and NaCl concentration. Meanwhile, the stability of glucose-treated hemoglobin was the highest under the conditions of pH 7, temperatures below 60 ℃ and NaCl concentration of 0.6 mol/L.

Key words: hemoglobin, glucose, freeze-drying, stability
