Enzymatic production of diacylglycerol (DAG)-enriched oil has been investigated extensively due to its health benefits with total annual sales of approximately USD 200 million in Japan since its introduction in the late 1990s till 2009. Enzymatic catalysis had been proven to exhibit improved results with respect to yield, purity, reaction time, and stability in comparison with chemical catalysis. The cost of the enzymes, however, is the main hurdle to the widespread use of enzyme for commercial… 
Types and Concentrations of Catalysts in Chemical Glycerolysis for the Production of Monoacylglycerols and Diacylglycerols
Article history: Received: 09 December, 2020 Accepted: 23 January, 2021 Online: 30 January, 2021 Monoacylglycerol (MAG) and diacylglycerol (DAG) are structured lipids that have been widely used in
Diacylglycerol‐enriched oil production using chemical glycerolysis
Diacylglycerol (DAG)-enriched oils have been drawing increased global attention from researchers and food manufacturers. The production of DAG-enriched oils have been investigated extensively because
Sustainable Process for 1,3-Diolein Synthesis Catalyzed by Immobilized Lipase from Penicillium expansum
This work provided an alternative and sustainable process for 1,3-diacylglycerol synthesis catalyzed by immobilized lipase from Penicillium expansum (PEL) in which the esterification of oleic acid with glycerol for 1-3-diolein synthesis was employed as the model reaction.
A Feasible Industrialized Process for Producing High Purity Diacylglycerols with No Contaminants
Industrial production of high purity diacylglycerols (DAGs) is still a challenge around the world because of contaminant formation during DAG production, such as glycidyl esters (GEs),
Green enzymatic production of glyceryl monoundecylenate using immobilized Candida antarctica lipase B
Optimize GMU synthesis in the present study can be used as a useful reference for industrial synthesis of fatty acid esters of glycerol by the enzymatic route.
A Valuable Product of Microbial Cell Factories: Microbial Lipase
This mini-review will focus on the most up-to-date research on microbial lipases and their commercial and industrial applications, and discuss and predict future applications of these important technologies.
Immobilized Lipase in the Synthesis of High Purity Medium Chain Diacylglycerols Using a Bubble Column Reactor: Characterization and Application
The crystallization and melting peaks were shifted to higher temperature regions as the purity of the MCD was increased and dense needle-like crystals were observed in MCDs with high purities.


Improvement of mono and diacylglycerol production via enzymatic glycerolysis in tert-butanol system
In this work we report experimental data regarding the glycerolysis of olive oil using Novozym 435 in tert-butanol organic system aiming at the production of monoacylglycerols (MAG) and
Influence of silica gel in production of diacylglycerol via enzymatic glycerolysis of palm olein.
Enzymatic glycerolysis was explored in this paper for the production of diacylglycerol (DAG) oils from palm olein. Three commercial enzymes, Lipozyme TL IM, Lipozyme RM IM and Novozym 435 were used
Optimization of mono and diacylglycerols production from enzymatic glycerolysis in solvent-free systems
This work reports solvent-free enzymatic glycerolysis of olive oil with an immobilized lipase (Novozym 435) using Tween 40, Tween 65, Tween 80, Tween 85, Triton X-100, and soy lecithin as
The production of monoacylglycerols via enzymatic glycerolysis in a simple and efficient operation was evaluated, indicating that the operation could be used in practical applications.
Diacylglycerol synthesis by enzymatic glycerolysis: Screening of commercially available lipases
Seven lipases were screened for their ability to synthesize DAG in the glycerolysis of rapeseed oil and the result suggests that glycerol forms a layer around the hydrophilic lipase particles, limiting contact between the lipases and thehydrophobic oil phase.
Assessment of process parameters on the production of diglycerides rich in omega-3 fatty acids through the enzymatic glycerolysis of fish oil
The main objective of this work is to present new experimental information concerning the effect of relevant process parameters related to the production of diglycerides by enzymatic glycerolysis of
Optimization of reaction conditions for the production of DAG using immobilized 1,3-regiospecific lipase lipozyme RM IM
The yield as well as the purity of DAG gradually decreased because of the enhancement of acyl migration at later stages of the reaction after the 1,3-DAG concentration reached a maximum.
