  • Patent number: 11206847
    Abstract: Rice-bran oil of superior quality can be obtained from rice bran in high yields, and defatted rice bran of superior quality can be obtained as well. The process of the invention comprises a first processing step of bringing overheated steam in contact with fresh rice bran obtained just after rice polishing to deactivate enzymes, a second processing step of extracting rice-bran oil from the rice bran obtained in the first processing step, and a third processing step of isolating and obtaining defatted rice bran. Preferably in the first processing step, overheated steam of 250° C. to 650° C. is brought in contact with rice bran for 0.5 to 60 seconds. The extracted rice-bran oil has a low acid number, and the obtained defatted rice bran is free of bacteria and nasty smells, providing a meal of superior edible quality.

  • Patent number: 9421216
    Abstract: Borocarbohydrate complex containing compositions are presented that have an improved di-complex to boric acid ratio. In some embodiments, compositions are characterized by a di-complex to boric acid ratio of at least 5:1 and more typically at least 10:1 in liquid form, and at least 20:1 in dried form. In other embodiments, compositions are characterized by a minimum content of 80 wt % di-complex and a boric acid content of less than 15 wt %, and more typically less than 5 wt %. Contemplated compositions are thought to have improved biological activity and reduced content of undesired components.

  • Patent number: 9237759
    Abstract: Methods and compositions are provided for increasing the feed intake of lactating animals. Incorporation of sodium sulfate decahydrate (glauber salts) into animal feed enhances the feed intake of lactating animals. Glauber salts are particularly effective as feed intake enhancers when the lactating animals are under heat stress conditions. Lactating animals provided with a diet supplemented with glauber salts in the farrowing crate until weaning show an increase in the average daily feed intake compared to animals without glauber salts in their diet.
