  1. 1. Fatty acid composition in Arctic char (Salvelinus alpinus) fed with red yeast biomass : a comparison between large and small specimens

    University essay from SLU/Department of Molecular Sciences

    Author : Sofia Jacobsson; [2022]
    Keywords : Fatty acid composition; lipid content; oleaginous yeast; Arctic char Salvelinus alpinus ; aquaculture;

    Abstract : Oleaginous yeast has shown to be a promising alternative to replace vegetable oils in fish feed. A problem in aquaculture is that different growth rates can be observed among farm-raised fish, supressing the productions full potential. When different growth rates are observed, it can be questioned if the fish assimilate the feed to the same extent. READ MORE

  2. 2. Lipid content and profile of Rhodotorula toruloides during fermentation

    University essay from SLU/Department of Molecular Sciences

    Author : Khairul Kibria; [2021]
    Keywords : Rhodotorula toruloides; fatty acids; lipid class; triglycerides; phospholipid; gas chromatography;

    Abstract : Oleaginous yeast such as Rhodotorula toruloides is a promising organism for production of lipids from lignocellulosic substrates. Microbial lipids have potential applications in energy, food, feed and pharmaceutical industry, because most of the lipids are triglycerides with long chain fatty acids that are comparable to typical vegetable oils and can be obtained without arable land requirement.

  3. 3. Growth of filamentous fungi in pure olive oil : a fundamental study for application to vegetable oil-derived waste streams

    University essay from Högskolan i Borås/Akademin för textil, teknik och ekonomi

    Author : Tahir Muhammad Nazir; [2020]
    Keywords : filamentous fungi; oleaginous fungi; Aspergillus oryzae; Neurospora intermedia; olive oil; fat; fungal biomass;

    Abstract : Vegetable oil is more difficult to degrade by microorganisms in comparison to carbohydrates and protein. Thus, it creates serious environmental and health concerns if oil-derived waste streams produced by restaurants and industries remain untreated. READ MORE

  4. 4. Evaluation of the antagonistic activity of Rhodotorula babjevae and its extracellular compounds towards postharvest pathogens

    University essay from SLU/Department of Molecular Sciences

    Author : Caroline Sandberg; [2019]
    Keywords : Rhodotorula babjevae; PEFA; postharvest pathogens; yeast; mold;

    Abstract : The growing population ultimately puts pressure on the food industry to become more effi-cient and to reduce postharvest food waste. The leading method of reducing postharvest decay of fruits has been through fungicide application. READ MORE

  5. 5. Establishing a predictive model for total fat content in Lipomyces starkeyi CBS 1807 by FT-NIR analysis

    University essay from SLU/Department of Molecular Sciences

    Author : Irina Ehnström; [2018]
    Keywords : Oleaginous microorganisms; SCO; biofuels; FT-NIR; lipid extraction; prediction; validation;

    Abstract : This study investigates the potential of using near- infrared spectroscopy (FT-NIR) to establish a predictive model for total fat content in the oleaginous yeast Lipomyces strakeyi CBS 1807. FT-NIR- based quantification allows for rapid lipid determination compared to traditional extraction methods. READ MORE
