  2. 2. Lipase in oat endosperm: The effect of freeze-drying and oven-drying

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för kemi och biomedicin (KOB)

    Author : Ilham Hassan; [2021]
    Keywords : Lipase; oat endosperm; whole grain oat flour; water activity.;

    Abstract : The project was carried out in collaboration with Lantmännen with the aim to analyse the lipase activity in oat endosperm, non-heat-treated whole grain oat flour and heat-treated whole grain oat flour and to investigate whether lipase activity could be inactivated in oat endosperm by reducing water activity by various methods such as oven drying and freeze drying to extend oat shelf life. Lipase activity was measured by a wet extraction of the flour and an artificial substrate that gives a coloured product if lipase enzymes are active in the extract. READ MORE
