Practical Fermentation Technology

A hands-on ebook which starts by means of surroundings the context;- defining 'fermentation' and the potential makes use of of fermenters, and surroundings the scope for the booklet. It then proceeds in a methodical demeanour to hide the gear for learn scale fermentation labs, the differing kinds of fermenters to be had, their makes use of and modes of operation.

Bioactive Glasses. Materials, Properties and Applications

Because of their biocompatibility and bioactivity, bioactive glasses are used as powerful implant fabrics through the human physique to switch or fix broken tissue. therefore, they've been in non-stop use due to the fact that almost immediately after their invention within the past due Sixties and are the topic of intensive study all over the world.

Other more novel oils can be produced from plants and single-celled organisms through bio­ technology and may provide a solution to the public health problem of making these components available to all (Gillies et al. 2011). 3 Nutritionally Enhanced Feed Crops Besides contributing to human health, nutritionally enhanced crops to address improvements in livestock and poultry feed are being designed. As the human popu­ lation increases, so will the demand for meat consumption; as a result, more nutritious and environmentally friendly feed crops with lower undesirable components are under development.

1 Biotechnological Approaches for Nutritionally Enhanced Food Crop Production Kathleen L. 1 Introduction Human health can be directly attributed to the nutritional content of plants grown as food crops. The biologically active compounds found in food crops are high in number and wide in diversity. Food crops can however be nutri­ tionally enhanced to improve the content and bio­ availability of these essential nutrients. One approach that is rapidly gaining momentum is through the use of biotechnology.
