  3. 3. Utilization of Hempseed Press Cake: Optimization of Protein Isolation and Ice Cream Formulation

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Livsmedelsteknik och nutrition (master)

    Author : Erica Forsén; [2020]
    Keywords : Food engineering; Livsmedelsteknik; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Hempseeds, a by-product from hemp fiber production, have a very good nutritional profile, both for essential fatty acids and amino acids, increasing the interest to use hempseeds as a food source. The aims of this project were to optimize the extraction of proteins from hempseed press cake, characterize the functions of the proteins and determine if an ice cream formulation can be created.

  4. 4. Optimization of Protein Recovery from Rapeseed Press Cake

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Livsmedelsteknik och nutrition (master)

    Author : Cecilia Ahlström; [2019]
    Keywords : Food engineering; Livsmedelsteknik; Technology and Engineering; Agriculture and Food Sciences;

    Abstract : Due to the world’s growing population and an increase in food demand, new innovative food products need to be developed to maximize the use of limited farmland. Because of global warming and the fact that plant based products generate less greenhouse gases than meat based products, research should focus on new plant-based protein sources. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modelling the effects of land cover and climate change on watershed hydrology in south-western Ethiopia

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Nicklas Simonsen; [2019]
    Keywords : Hydrological model; Soil Water Assessment Tool; SWAT; Land use Land cover; LULC; climate change; erosion; Ethiopian highlands; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Degradation of the hydrological regime is a pressing issue in the Ethiopian Highlands. It is one of the most rapidly degrading landscapes due to its topography and large amounts of annual precipitation. This problem has been exacerbated through anthropogenic influence from land use/land cover (LULC) and climate change. READ MORE
