Abstract Animal glue-based cigarette breakable capsule is less accepted on the international market due to the material used in preparation process and short storable period. Therefore, animal glue is replaced by plant glue for capsule wall in this study. The singlefactor test and orthogonal test balance optimization are conducted to evaluate the effects of four factors including sol temperature, stirring speed, carrageenan addition ratio and glycerol addition ratio. The results showed that①sol temperature, stirring speed, carrageenan addition ratio and glycerol addition ratio all had significant effects on the quality of plant glue wall material. The order of influence was:stirring speed > glycerol addition ratio > carrageenan addition ratio > sol temperature. ②The optimal process parameters of the plant glue-based cigarette breakable capsule sol should be controlled at sol temperature of 80℃, stirring speed of 180 r·min-1, carrageenan addition ratio of 0.5%, and glycerol addition ratio of 0.9‰. ③By increasing the sol temperature, stirring speed and addition ratio, the molding quality of the cigarette breakable capsule with plant glue wall can be better than that of the cigarette breakable capsule with animal glue wall, and the storage period can be significantly prolonged.
