Milk Phospholipids Extraction Using Switchable Solvents, Kaavya Rathnakumar
Electronic Theses and Dissertations
Phospholipids (PLs) found in milk are of great interest due to their health and nutritional benefits associated with their consumption. By-products generated during the manufacture of dairy products represent a source of PLs with potential for value-added opportunities. Currently, the extraction of PLs from by-products results in overall lowefficiencies, and it involves subsequent solvent separation and lipid recovery. This dissertation studied the extraction of milk PLs from by-product streams with a tertiary anime (N, N-dimethyl cyclohexylamine, CyNMe2) as a switchable hydrophilicity solvent. This type of solvents can be reversibly switched between a hydrophobic and hydrophilic form in the presence or ...

Micro-Physiological Models To Mimic Mucosal Barrier Complexity Of The Human Intestine In Vitro, 2020 University of Massachusetts Amherst
Micro-Physiological Models To Mimic Mucosal Barrier Complexity Of The Human Intestine In Vitro, Abhinav Sharma
The mucosal barrier in the intestine is vital to maintain selective absorption of nutrients while protecting internal tissues and maintaining symbiotic relationship with luminal microbiota. This bio-barrier consists of a cellular epithelial barrier and an acellular mucus barrier. Secreted mucus regulates barrier function via in situ biochemical and biophysical interaction with luminal content that continually evolves during digestion and absorption. Increasing evidence suggests that a mucus barrier is indispensable to maintain homeostasis in the gastrointestinal tract. However, the importance of mucus barrier is largely underrated for in vitro mucosal tissue modeling. The major gap is the lack of experimental material ...
Consequences Of Gmo Labeling, 2020 University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa
Consequences Of Gmo Labeling, Danny Santos Domingo, Jr
Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) have been a hot topic of debate for decades. Granted, the biotechnology industry has seen opposition in many advances in terms of their ethical applications. Arguments have centered their safe incorporation into the food supply. It is difficult to honestly assess their safety since they have not been around for too long. That is why some extensively advocate for them to be labeled when incorporated into foods, to give consumers autonomy in making decisions on the foods they consume. Opponents, however, worry about public confusion, price increases and overall costs to producers, manufacturers, and consumers alike ...
Adsorptive Surface Modification Of Cellulose Nanocrystals To Stabilize Nutraceuticals Loaded Lipid Carriers For Food Application, Avinash S. Patel
Electronic Theses and Dissertations
Lipid carriers such as emulsions and liposomes have been widely studied as carriers for different nutraceuticals. However, lipid carriers' physicochemical instability results in the leakage of loaded nutraceuticals and the low solubility into the digestion medium, thus reducing the bioaccessibility. Cellulose nanocrystals (CNC) are nano-sized cellulose derivatives obtained after hydrolysis of cellulosic matrices that possess potential applications in functional foods and nutraceuticals. However, hydrophilicity, anionic surface potential, and poor re-dispersibility limit CNC’s applications. The primary objectives of this research were 1) to modify CNC via adsorbing polyethylene glycol (PEG) to stabilize liposomes and to study its physiochemical stability at ...
