    Abstract: The present invention provides a preparation method of deglycosylated ginsenosides, which uses the supercritical fluid technology to conduct the deglycosylation of ginsenosides extract in supercritical solvent under preset pressure and temperature conditions. Under the same operational conditions, the deglycosylated ginsenosides extract and solvent at supercritical state are input into an adsorption tank at the preset volume flow rate ratio for the adsorption of ginsenosides. Then, the adsorbed ginsenosides are applied with gradient eluent by using the ethanol solution. Finally, the pressure is lowered for the separation and purification of ginsenosides to get the deglycosylated ginsenosides of high concentration.

    Abstract: Method for extracting puree, or juice, from a starting product based on vegetable or animal food comprising a starting treatment step, for example a step of softening the food product obtaining a treated product (101). A deviation step follows (102), during which the treated product is selectively directed towards a cold extraction (110), or towards a hot extraction (200). If the treated product is directed towards a cold extraction, it follows firstly an extraction step (103), in which the treated product at the inlet is separated into a main product comprising the puree, or the juice (103a) and into a waste material (103b). The main product is then subjected to an enzymatic inactivation step which provides quickly heating the treated product up to a determined temperature T (104).

  • Patent number: 9149064
    Abstract: The invention provides a method for making nanofibrillar cellulose with high absorptivity to fat and cholate. According to the invention, dietary fiber material is activated by steam flash explosion and hydrolyzed sequentially by xylanase, laccase and cellulase. Nanofibrillar cellulose is obtained by subjecting the hydrolyzed fiber to high pressure homogenization. Nanofibrillar cellulose is further modified by octenyl succinic anhydride or glycidyl methacrylate to increase its ability to absorb fat and cholate. The method of the invention is safe, clean and environment-friendly. It avoids using toxic reagents, strong acids and bases in the process of preparing nanofibrillar cellulose, making it safe to be used as dietary products. The nanofibrillar cellulose made by the invented method has an oil absorption rate of 20-35 g/g, a water absorption rate of 20-30 g/g, expansivity of 40-70 mL/g, and sodium deoxycholate absorption rate of 0.01-0.2 mmoL/100 mg.

  • Publication number: 20150104557
    Abstract: The invention relates to an optimized method for cultivating microorganisms of the genus Thraustochytriales, according to which the microorganisms are cultivated in a low salt medium without adding sodium salts and chloride salts, the total salt content being less than 3.5 g/L (corresponding to less than 10 percent of sea water salt content), whereupon the PUFAs are isolated from the microorganisms and/or the medium. The invention especially relates to novel optimized media having a substantially reduced total salt content, above all a particularly reduced NaCl content. The production of PUFAs can be substantially improved and significantly simplified by using a novel combination of different salts as a media composition in which the overall weight ratios of ions do not exceed 1.75 g/L. Furthermore, said medium preferably contains no added sodium salt and chloride salt at all, which helps prevent environmental damages caused by wastewaters containing salt.

  • Publication number: 20150105255
    Abstract: Derivatives of Agrobacterium vitis strain F2/5 are disclosed. These derivatives were generated following homologous recombination with an internal fragment of targeted genes resulting in gene disruption by insertion of a copy of suicide vector pVIK165. The genes disrupted were F-avi5813 encoding a phosphopantetheinyltransferase, F-avi4329 encoding an aminotransferase and F-avi0838 (rirA) encoding an iron responsive transcriptional regulator. Such derivatives control crown gall on grapevines. In addition, these derivatives did not induce roots necrosis but enhanced root development and callus formation. On young stem explants, it was shown as well that the F2/5 derivatives are necrosis-negative.

  • Publication number: 20150099711
    Abstract: A method for modifying a quality of a fruit includes cutting a live stem attached to a live fruit at a cut distance from the fruit, producing a cut end of the stem, contacting only the cut end of the stem with a solution comprising at least one mobile and quality-modifying food ingredient while protecting the fruit from contact with the solution, and keeping the cut end of the stem in contact with the solution for an incubation time sufficient to allow absorption and transport of the food ingredient into the fruit, the food ingredient conferring a modified quality upon the fruit. A system for practicing the method and an edible raw plant product produced by the method are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 8999416
    Abstract: A method to stabilized and impart color to strawberries, which can be fresh, or optionally IQF treated. This method comprises several stages including cuticle removal, alkalinization of the fruit pulp, infusion of a soluble stabilizing agent by immersion in an alkaline media to give the necessary firmness and texture integrity, infusion of dyeing agents by immersion in an alkaline color solution, fixation of said color and stabilizing agents in an acidic solution that has been enriched with polyvalent cations, and ulterior processes to preserve and extend the shelf life.

  • Patent number: 8999422
    Abstract: Improved processes for the production of engineered feed or food ingredients by extrusion comprise the steps of directing a dry fraction and a byproduct slurry fraction in serial order through a preconditioner and twin-screw extruder in order to create a wet extrudate, which is thereafter dried. The dry fraction is selected from sources of plant-derived starch and/or protein, sources of animal-derived functional proteins, and mixtures thereof. The slurry fraction comprises aqueous byproduct slurries from meat, dairy, vegetable, and fruit processing. The extrusion processes yield high-quality ingredients without the need for conventional rendering.
