  • Patent number: 10278949
    Abstract: A biotechnology process that employs membrane technology for obtaining an extract rich in tannins of ellagic acid from blackberries (Rubus spp.) and from other fruits that contain these compounds, as well as to the extract obtained using this method. The method is essentially based on baromembrane technologies that allow mechanical separation and effective fractionation between the polyphenol compounds, by interactions between the physico-chemical properties thereof, the material of the membrane and the molar mass of same, thereby allowing enrichment of a fraction of the natural extract with ellagic acid tannins and modification of the content thereof in terms of anthocyanins and other compounds such as sugars and acids.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: May 11, 2012
    Date of Patent: May 7, 2019

  • Patent number: 10028970
    Abstract: The invention concerns a cashew apple extract and a composition comprising a cashew apple extract and optionally a carrier, in particular for use for allowing reduction of body weight gain or limitation of increasing body weight, reduction or limitation of fat storage, of fatty liver, of liver triglycerides level, of hypertriglyceridemia, of glycemia level, of insulinemia, of insulin resistance, and/or of one or several factors of metabolic syndrome.

  • Patent number: 9480639
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for extracting phenolic compounds with low molecular weights from olive fruit water; the invention also relates to compositions enriched with phenolic compounds including at least 40% of dry matter, said dry matter consisting of at least 30% hydroxytyrosol; the invention also relates to a method for drying said compositions by spraying using grape polyphenol extracts as a drying medium as well as to powders titrated with phenolic compounds of olives and grapes obtained after drying.
    Type: Grant
