2016-09-07· Castor oil, produced from castor beans, has long been considered to be of important commercial value primarily for the manufacturing of soaps, lubricants, and coatings, among others. Global castor oil production is concentrated primarily in a
Worldwide, plant protein contributes substantially as a food resource because it contains essential amino acids for meeting human physiological requirements. However, many versatile plant proteins are used as medicinal agents as they are produced by using molecular tools of biotechnology. Proteins
2018-01-01· India is 3rd largest producer of coconut after Indonesia and Philippines. The dried coconut kernel is known as copera. It contains 65–75% oil hence it is used for oil extraction besides other food uses (DebMandal & Mandal, 2011).Coconut oil is preferred in southern part of India particularly in Kerala.
The soybean or soya bean (Glycine max) is a species of legume native to East Asia, widely grown for its edible bean, which has numerous uses.. Traditional unfermented food uses of soybeans include soy milk, from which tofu and tofu skin are made. Fermented soy foods include soy sauce, fermented bean paste, nattō, and tempeh.Fat-free (defatted) soybean meal is a significant and cheap source of
2018-04-17· Natural medicines were the only option for the prevention and treatment of human diseases for thousands of years. Natural products are important sources for drug development. The amounts of bioactive natural products in natural medicines are always fairly low. Today, it is very crucial to develop effective and selective methods for the extraction and isolation of those bioactive natural products.
Dr. Héctor Autino, Bunge South America & ASAGA, Argentina The presentation is based on a detailed description of the production of grains, oilseeds, oils and by-products within the international context and in particular of the extended Mercosur, including a detailed analysis of the most relevant countries, as well as who are the main exporters and importers worldwide.
1. Introduction. The use of herbal parts (raw materials) for medicinal formulations, cosmetics, fragrances, nutrition and food additives (spices) implies also the need for sophisticated analytical techniques and methods to assess their quality .The World Health Organization (WHO) has accepted fingerprint analysis as a methodology for assessing herbal quality and in safety evaluation of
The solubility of proteins is considered as that proportion of nitrogen in a protein product which is in the soluble state under specific conditions. Solubility is the amount of protein in a sample...
This reverse reaction form glycerides from fatty acids and glycerol through esterification reaction. Lipases are also used to catalyze the transesterification reaction using alcohol together with fats, oils and free fatty acids to produce alkyl esters (biodiesel). The use of lipases to catalyze the transesterification of fatty acids to alkyl esters for use as biodiesel has not yet been

Kenya, sunflower seeds grow vastly well in the south-west regions that include areas surrounding the Lake Victoria. This project was based on extraction of oil from sunflower seeds, analysis of physico-chemical properties of the oil, production of methyl esters from the oil using
This project was based on extraction of oil from sunflower seeds, analysis of physico-chemical properties of the oil, production of methyl esters from the oil using base-catalyzed trans-esterification and studying the physico-chemical characteristics of the methyl esters while comparing them with ASTM D6751(American Society for Testing
A simple procedure for the extraction of the lipolytic activity from sunflower seed has been developed. Various conditions of extraction have been optimized in order to obtain maximum yield of lipase.
In this article, the enzymatic aqueous extraction (EAE) of sunflower seed oil was investigated. The effects of the operational variables (temperature, water seed mass ratio, and enzyme concentration) were evaluated in order to define the conditions that maximize the free oil yield (FOY).
Extraction and characterization of seed oil - SpringerLink Warm and cold presses extract oil from sunflower seeds with slightly different flavors in the finished product. In a cold press, the hulls are removed; the seeds are broken into smaller pieces and run through steel rollers or a piston-like cylinder to squeeze out the oil.
used in frying. Blending Ben oil with sunflower oil and soybean oil enhances the oxidative stability of the mix- ture. Mani . et al.  say that comparing its chemical properties, Moringa seed oil is considered equivalent to olive oil, and may be used for human consumption. Also, the oil from Moringa seeds has shown the strongest anti-
The extraction and characterization of oil from Neem seeds, leaves and bark was studied. The results obtained showed that the moisture content of Neem seeds, leaves, and bark are 41.0%, 57.6% and 34.2% respectively, which indicates that Neem leaves possesses the highest amount of oil…
Squash seed oil extraction and characterization Acta Agronómica 58(3)-2009. 2 Introduction The squash (Cucurbita moschata Duch) is a horticultural crop native to the Americas (Whitaker & Bemis, 1975). In Colombia it is widely cultivated, particularly in home gardens.
seed oil of C. excelsa. The high percentage of linoleic and palmitic acids in the oil indicated several potential uses for the oil of C. excelsa. Kar and Mital (1999) reported that shea butter is a natural fat obtained from the seeds of the shea tree Butyrespermum parkii, The shea butter fat was extracted from the seeds
Conclusions. GC-MS was used for the characterization of the various classes of three different seed oil waxes. The results indicated that seed oil wax has the potential to be used in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry due to its better composition of long chain fatty acids and fatty alcohols.
