Abstract: The present teachings provide modified enzymes, preferably phytases, which have increased stability, hypothesized to arise from increased glycosylation. The enzymes can be modified to introduce or increase the number of glycosylation sites in the amino acid sequence, or glycosylation can be increased by the use of specific host production methods, or both. The enzymes of the present teachings have an increased stability after treatment at elevated temperature, which can be measured by inactivity reversibility or percent recovery following a treatment such as heating. The enzymes of the present teachings find application for example in food, feed, and feed pelleting.

Abstract: Systems, techniques and methods for estimating the metabolic state or flux, e.g., the body energy state (“BES”) of a patient, are disclosed. The BES provides a deep insight into the nutritional needs of the patient, thus allowing for a sort of exquisite glycemic control with regard to the patient. The invention discloses systems and methods for estimating fractional gluconeogenesis. The invention also discloses systems and methods for estimating and targeting patient blood lactate concentration, both as a target itself and as an intermediate step to estimating and targeting patient fractional gluconeogenesis glucose production. Nutritional support methods and formulations are also disclosed. The invention is suitable for any sort of patient, including those who are injured, such as with traumatic brain injury, ill, or have other conditions that stress the metabolic system.

Abstract: A food container is disclosed. Embodiments of the food container include a repository composed of inelastic, flexible material and a fitment with an opening sufficiently wide to permit extrusion of moderately cohesive foods with moderate to high viscosity, and sufficiently narrow to prevent such foods from spilling from the fitment opening. In some embodiments, the fitment opening bears a tamper-evident hermetic seal or a replaceable cap, which may also have a tamper-evident seal. Methods are disclosed for manufacturing the food container by assembling it and filling it with food. Other methods involve using the container to eat by squeezing it.

Abstract: Fusion-proteins containing an enzyme, preferably a feed or food enzyme, coupled to a gut surface-binding domain are presented. The fusion-proteins can be used to promote feed utilization in animals. In a particular example, a Fusion enzyme according to the invention comprising a gut-surface-binding polypeptide segment linked to a phytase show an increased resident time in the gut, which leads to an increased amount of time given to the enzyme to catalyse the corresponding reaction which finally leads to improved feed utilisation.
