  • Patent number: 10472316
    Abstract: Disclosed are processes for obtaining a microbial oil comprising one or more polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) from one or more microbial cells by lysing the cells to form a lysed cell composition and then recovering the oil from the lysed cell composition. Further disclosed is microbial oil comprising one or more PUFAs that is recovered from microbial cells by at least one process described.
    Type: Grant

  • Publication number: 20050202149
    Abstract: An emulsion system and method for controlling the digestion of a fat or an oil component is provided including a substantially hydrophobic food-grade component, and at least one of an emulsifier component, and one or more of polymeric components, wherein at least one of the emulsifier component and the polymeric component comprises a substantially indigestible food-grade material, such as an indigestible dietary fiber. The emulsifier component and/or the polymeric component can be selected so that the overall interfacial membrane is indigestible to humans and/or animals.
