Rapeseed and sunflower are two of the world’s major oilseeds. Rapeseed and sunflower meal (RSM and SFM), the by-products of oil extraction, are produced in large quantities. They are mainly composed of proteins, lignocellulosic fibres and minerals. They were initially used as a protein complement in animal feed rations and sometimes as fertilizer or as combustible source. More recently, new alternatives to these traditional uses have been developed that draw on the structure and physicochemical… Expand
Preliminary Characterisation of Wastes Generated from the Rapeseed and Sunflower Protein Isolation Process and Their Valorisation in Delaying Oil Oxidation
Since rapeseed and sunflower meals are two of the most representative oilseed crops in the world, this study was focused on ethanol-wash solutes (EWS) obtained as wastes from the protein isolationExpand
Sinapinic and protocatechuic acids found in rapeseed: isolation, characterisation and potential benefits for human health as functional food ingredients
Abstract Rapeseed is one of the world’s major oilseeds, and rapeseed oil is produced by pressing of the seeds. This process results in the production of a low-economic-value by-product, rapeseedExpand
Production of an enzymatic protein hydrolyzate from defatted sunflower seed meal for potential application as a plant biostimulant
Abstract An extensive protein hydrolyzate was produced starting from sunflower defatted seed meal, an abundant by-product of biodiesel chain oil extraction. Two-step enzymatic hydrolysis was carriedExpand
Rapeseed meal valorization strategies via nitrogen- and oxygen-limited production of polyhydroxyalkanoates with Pseudomonas putida.
Insight is provided into the degrees of freedom available in the design of a holistic valorization scheme of rapeseed meal, and high protein lignocellulosic biomass in general. Expand
Physicochemical Properties Analysis and Secretome of Aspergillus niger in Fermented Rapeseed Meal
Results of the present study indicated that SSF had significant effects on chemical composition of RSM and suggested that A. niger is able to secrete many extracellular degradation enzymes (especially lignocellulosic hydrolyzing enzymes, acid proteases and phytase) during fermentation, thus altering chemical composition and physicochemical properties of R SM. Expand
Solid state fermentation of rapeseed cake with Aspergillus niger for degrading glucosinolates and upgrading nutritional value
The results indicate that the solid state fermentation offers an effective approach to improving the quality of proteins sources such as rapeseed cake. Expand
Microbial oil produced from the fermentation of microwave-depolymerised rapeseed meal
Abstract Rapeseed meal is high in protein and carbohydrate and is a promising feedstock for microbial valorisation, however, the fibrous structure is difficult to breakdown and involves multipleExpand
High throughput process development for the purification of rapeseed proteins napin and cruciferin by ion exchange chromatography
Abstract Proteins derived from plant resources such as oilseed meals, canola and sunflower, are considered a viable alternative to animal proteins for food consumption. This work presents a rationalExpand
Release of phenolic acids from sunflower and rapeseed meals using different carboxylic esters hydrolases from Aspergillus niger
Abstract Sunflower and rapeseed meals are agro-industrial coproducts that contain high amount of phenolics (1–4 % dry matter), mostly as esters of caffeic acid (CA) and sinapic acid (SA),Expand
Oilseeds beyond oil: Press cakes and meals supplying global protein requirements
Abstract Background The world's demand for animal protein is expected to double by 2050. The environmental and health concerns about its production and consumption have thus promoted the evaluationExpand


Bioconversion of rapeseed meal for the production of a generic microbial feedstock
Rapeseed meal has been used as a low-cost raw material for the production of a generic microbial feedstock through a consolidated bioconversion process and nutritional similarity between the feedstock and a mixture of commercial peptone and yeast extract was confirmed. Expand
Composition and fractionation of sunflower meal: use of the lignocellulosic fraction as substrate in solid-state fermentation.
Abstract The chemical composition of undehulled sunflower meal (SFM) was studied in order to evaluate its biotechnological potential as a fermentation source. SFM can be fractionated into three mainExpand
Decrease of the chlorogenic acid content in commercial sunflower meal using a polyphenol oxidase preparation secreted by the white‐rot fungus Trametes versicolor ATCC 42530
BACKGROUND: Sunflower meal (SFM) is a by-product from the oil extraction process from sunflower seeds. The meal is used as a protein supplement in the livestock diet. However, relatively high levelsExpand
Oil cakes and their biotechnological applications--a review.
Various applications of oil cakes in fermentation and biotechnological processes, their value addition by implementation in feed and energy source (for the production of biogas, bio-oil) as well are discussed. Expand

Hemicelluloses obtaining from rapeseed cake residue generated in the biodiesel production process
Abstract The processing of rapeseed oil seeds for biodiesel production generates huge amounts of lignocellulosic cake residue mainly composed by cellulose, hemicelluloses and lignin. In this work,Expand
Valorization of some lignocellulosic agro-industrial residues to obtain biopolyols.

Solid-state fermentation of lignocellulosic plant residues from Brassica napus by Pleurotus ostreatus
Solid-state fermentation (SSF) of inedible parts of rapeseed was carried out using a white-rot fungus, Pleurotus ostreatus, to degrade lignocellulosic material for mycelial-single cell protein (SCP)Expand
Sunflower cake as a natural composite: composition and plastic properties.
The determination of the composition of sunflower cake (SFC) and also the characterization of its components showed that SFC can be considered a natural composite, which has similar rheological properties and other physicochemical properties compatible with shaping or molding behaviors of plastic-processing machinery.
