Production of structured triacylglycerols (sTAG) containing eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) at the sn-1 (or 3) position using Lipozyme in a solvent-free system was studied. Optimal water activity (a w) for the synthesis of the sTAG was investigated. Vacuum was applied to shift reaction equilibrium toward the synthesis reaction by removing by-products.
