    Diffusion - FCS - Gastric digestion - GFP - Modeling - Pepsin - Whey protein gel

    During gastric digestion, hydrolysis of proteins by pepsin contributes largely to the breakdown of protein-rich food. We hypothesized that the effect of pepsin is limited by its diffusivity, which is co-determined by the food structure and the local pH in the food during digestion. To investigate the principle mechanism of enzyme diffusion in food matrices, we used enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP) as probe to study the diffusivity of proteins in whey protein isolate gels, using fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS). Gels made with different ionic strength showed distinctive elastic moduli but did not show differences in diffusivity of EGFP. Some models for diffusion in hydrogels yield good description of the obtained data, and can approximate the enzyme diffusion in diverse food matrices. However, the enzyme pepsin is more complicated than the probe EGFP, to yield more accurate predictions, electrostatic and enzyme-substrate interaction also need to be considered.

    Continuous purification - Downstream processing - Filtration - GOS - Membrane cascade - Spiral wound membrane

    BACKGROUND: Membrane filtration has the potential for purification of oligosaccharide mixtures. However, single stage performance is limited by the relatively low yield and purity that can be achieved. This paper explores the potential of a three-stage pilot-scale spiral wound membrane filtration cascade for the removal of monosaccharides and disaccharides from a galacto-oligosaccharide mixture. RESULTS: Two three-stage cascaded configurations with GH membranes were tested, one ideal-like configuration (cascade 1) and one adapted configuration (cascade 2). Cascade 1 performed well with regard to oligosaccharide yield (e.g. yield 84%, purity 0.46), while cascade 2 performed better in terms of oligosaccharide purity (e.g. yield 62%, purity 0.58). This might be compared with conventional single stage concentration which resulted in an oligosaccharide yield of 56% with a purity of 0.53. In addition these cascade configurations were explored using different membranes (GE and GK membranes) in each stage. CONCLUSION: The yield and purity in the cascaded systems were higher than the yield and purity of a single stage system with volume reduction. The yield and purity can be further enhanced by using an inhomogeneous cascade with different membranes in each stage.

    Continuous purification - Downstream processing - Filtration - Inulin - Membrane cascade - Spiral wound membrane

    This paper examines the use of a pilot-scale spiral wound nanofiltration cascade with regard to separation of mono- and disaccharides from a mixture of inulin of different polymer sizes. The choices of the membrane and operational conditions were based on single stage experiments. Two 3-stage cascade configurations with GE membranes were tested, a counter-current product recycle cascade (configuration 1) and an adapted cascade (configuration 2). The results show that the performance of the cascaded systems is significantly improved as compared to conventional single stage concentration and diafiltration. The yield increased from 77% in a conventional single stage system, to 89% in a single stage diafiltration system, to 99% in the cascaded systems. The yield is improved without any loss in purity. The purity of the inulin mixture was in the range of 94-96%.

    The nature of fatty acid modifies the equilibrium position in the esterification catalyzed by lipase
    Flores, M.V. ; Sewalt, J.J.W. ; Janssen, A.E.M. ; Padt, A. van der - \ 2000
    Biotechnology and Bioengineering 67 (2000)3. - ISSN 0006-3592 - p. 364 - 371.
    The equilibrium position in lipase mediated esterification of various fatty acids and butanol was studied. The influence of the chain length and the presence of unsaturations in the fatty acids on the equilibrium position was measured and predicted. To predict equilibrium position the program TREP extended (TREPEX) based on the UNIFAC group contribution method was used. Using an equilibrium constant of 35, calculated on the basis of thermodynamic activities, the equilibrium position between butanol and saturated and/or unsaturated fatty acids with different chain lengths can be predicted. The ester mole fraction at equilibrium increases with the fatty acid chain length, and for fatty acids with the same carbon number, the highest values are found for unsaturated fatty acids. For reaction systems containing two saturated fatty acids, a slightly higher mole fraction is obtained for the fatty acid with the higher chain length, while for mixtures consisting of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids, the mole fractions of the unsaturated esters are lower than those of the saturated ones, regardless the chain length of the fatty acid. These experimental results are in good agreement with the calculations with TREPEX
