Novel Corn Degerming Ethanol Fermentation Processes, Hui Wang, Tong Wang, Lawrence A. Johnson Oct 2010

Novel Corn Degerming Ethanol Fermentation Processes, Hui Wang, Tong Wang, Lawrence A. Johnson

Food Science and Human Nutrition Patents

The invention presents novel corn fermentation processes that remove the oil-rich fraction either during or after fermentation instead of before fermentation as usual. Besides recovery of high value oil-rich fraction of the corn, the processes also produce other value-added co-products such as that with high fiber or high protein but low oil contents.

Enzyme-Assisted De-Emulsification Of Aqueous Lipid Extracts, Christopher Penet, Peter Birschbach, Buddhi P. Lamsal, Lawrence A. Johnson, Stephanie E. Glatz, Charles E. Glatz, Cheng Zhang, Jianping Wu

Food Science and Human Nutrition Patents

Compositions and processes for destabilizing an oil-in-water emulsion resulting from the aqueous solvent extraction of plant oils are disclosed. The processes comprise the use of one or more enzyme activities including phospholipase and protease activity. The processes are useful for improving the extraction of oil from oilseeds, as well as for obtaining more desirable proteins from those oilseeds.
