  • Patent number: 11326187
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a process for reducing and/or preventing an increase in lactic acid levels in a fermentation product production process, such as especially ethanol production, wherein a lytic polysaccharide monooxygenase (LPMO) or an enzyme composition comprising an LPMO is added before or during saccharification and/or fermentation, or before or during propagation, to reduce and/or prevent an increase in lactic acid levels.
    Type: Grant

    Date of Patent: May 10, 2022
    Assignee: NOVOZYMES A/S
    Inventors: Armindo Ribeiro Gaspar, Victor Gabriel Guadalupe Medina, Xin Li, Kelly Cristina Leite Mulder, Angela Shows
  • Publication number: 20220002690
    Abstract: Provided are improved methods for treating wheat flour with lipase. Further provided are methods for separating wheat flour to provide a gluten fraction, a starch fraction and a fibre fraction where the wheat flour is treated with a selected lipase. Polypeptides having lipase activity, nucleic acid constructs, vectors, and host cells comprising the polynucleotides as well as methods of producing and using the polypeptides are also provided.

  • Publication number: 20210269833
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to processes for producing fermentation products from starch-containing material, wherein a triacylglyceride lipase (e.g., a thermostable triacylglyceride lipase) is present and/or added during liquefaction, pre-saccharification, saccharification, fermentation, simultaneous saccharification and fermentation, or any combination thereof, to increase enzymatically accessible starch, for example by reducing starch retrogradation, and/or increase fermentation product yield, such as ethanol yield. The disclosure also relates to the use of a triacylglyceride lipase in processes of the disclosure, for example, to increase enzymatically accessible starch and/or fermentation product yield, such as ethanol yield.
