Enhancement of storage stability of wheat germ oil by encapsulation

2018-04-01
Wheat germ oil which is a rich source of a-tocopherol is susceptible to oxidation. The main objective of this study was to encapsulate wheat germ oil to enhance its oxidation stability. It was also aimed to investigate the effects of different homogenization methods on physicochemical properties and storage stability of encapsulated wheat germ oil. As homogenization methods, silent crusher (SC), microfluidization (MF) and ultrasonication (US) were used. SC and MF techniques created more stable emulsions than US. The effects of maltodextrin (MD) in combination with sodium caseinate (NaCa), gum arabic (GA), chitosan (CS) or whey protein concentrate (WPC) and also WPC:CS combination at different ratios on encapsulation efficiency of capsules were studied. Sodium caseinate (NaCa) was found to be better coating material than chitosan (CS), whey protein concentrate (WPC) and gum arabic (GA) for the encapsulation of wheat germ oil in terms of encapsulation efficiency. The rate of increase in totox values of fresh oil was apparently higher than that of microcapsules. The loss of alpha-tocopherol in encapsulated oil was found to be lower than that in fresh oil during storage at both 15 degrees C and 45 degrees C for 24 days.

Wheat germ oil is a rich source of omega 3 and omega 6-fatty acids, octacosanol and tocopherol which has vitamin E activity. Due to these properties it is very beneficial for health but it is prone to oxidation in free form. Encapsulation provides protection of food ingredients from environmental stresses and increases the stability and functionality of the ingredient, which makes it possible to be used in functional foods. The main objective of this study was to encapsulate wheat germ oil and to investigat...
Microencapsulation of wheat germ oil

Wheat germ oil (WGO) is beneficial for health since it is a rich source of omega-3, omega-6 and tocopherol. However, as it contains polyunsaturated fatty acids, it is prone to oxidation. The aim of this study was to encapsulate wheat germ oil and determine the effects of core to coating ratio, coating materials ratio and ultrasonication time on particle size distribution of emulsions and encapsulation efficiency (EE) and surface morphology of capsules. Maltodextrin (MD) and whey protein concentrate (WPC) at...

In this study, wheat straw was pretreated with a microfluidizer to improve its enzymatic hydrolysis and ethanol yields. The pretreatment was performed at various pressures (500, 1000, and 1500bar) and solid loadings (1, 2, and 3%). The microfluidized biomass was then subjected to hydrolysis and simultaneous saccharification and co-fermentation (SSCF) experiments at different enzyme loadings (5, 10, and 15 FPU/g dry wheat straw) using a mutant yeast. The results indicated that the microfluidization method al...

Wheat germ oil is a rich source of omega 3 and omega 6, octacosanol and tocopherol which has vitamin E activity. Due to these properties it is beneficial for health but it is prone to oxidation in free form. The aim of this study was to encapsulate wheat germ oil in micron size and determine the best encapsulation conditions by analysing encapsulation efficiency, particle size distribution and surface morphology of the capsules. The effects of core to coating ratio, coating materials ratio and ultrasonicati...
Improvement of biohydrogen production by genetic manipulations in rhodobacter sphaeroides O.U.001
Kars, Gökhan; Gündüz, Ufuk; Department of Biotechnology (2008)
Rhodobacter sphaeroides O.U.001 is a purple non-sulphur bacterium producing hydrogen under photoheterotrophic, nitrogen limited conditions. Hydrogen is produced by Mo-nitrogenase but substantial amount of H2 is reoxidized by a membrane bound uptake hydrogenase. In this study, hydrogen production and the expression of structural nitrogenase genes were investigated by varying molybdenum and iron ion concentrations. These two elements are found in the structure of Mo-nitrogenase and they are important for func...
