We developed a rapid isolation method for fractionation of polysaccharides with different characteristics, and optimized it for the polysaccharide mixture from Korean citrus peels. A crude polysaccharide mixture, citrus-peel-enzyme (CPE) fraction was isolated from the citrus peels digested with pectinase and ethanol precipitation. CPE was further fractionated with serially diluted ethanol solution (ethanol:deionized water
