  1. 1. Fermentation of quinoa, canihua and amaranth to degrade phytate and improve mineral bioavailability

    University dissertation from Department of Food Technology, Lund University

    Author : Vanesa Castro-Alba; [2019-09-27]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Quinoa; Canihua; Amaranth; Iron; Zinc; Calcium; Phytate; Fermentation; Accessibility; Bioavailability;

    Abstract : Plant-based diets are the main source of nutrients for vegetarians worldwide and for low-income inhabitants of developing countries, such as in rural areas of Bolivia. These diets may contain high levels of mineral inhibitors such as phytate that impairs mineral absorption in the human gut. READ MORE

  2. 2. Molecular interactions between quinoa, the biocontrol agent Trichoderma and the pathogen Peronospora variabilis

    University dissertation from Printed in Sweden by Media-Tryck, Lund University

    Author : Oscar Miguel Rollano Penaloza; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Chenopodium quinoa; Peronospora variabilis; Trichoderma harzianum; Molecular interactions; qRT-PCR; RNA-seq; Plant growth promotion; Chenopodium quinoa; Peronospora variabilis; Trichoderma harzianum; RNA-seq; qRT-PCR; molekylära interaktioner;

    Abstract : Plants have developed complex molecular mechanisms to recognize and respond to the different microorganisms present in their surroundings. The most studied response mechanisms are plant defense responses. These defense response mechanisms share many similar components with the plant response mechanisms to beneficial microbes. READ MORE

  3. 3. Quinoa Stalks Glucuronoarabinoxylan : Biorefinery,xylooligosaccharides production and potential applications

    University dissertation from Department of Biotechnology, Lund University

    Author : Daniel Salas Veizaga; [2019-04-25]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Quinoa stalks; Glucuronoarabinoxylan; Xylooligosaccharides; Xylanases; Probiotics;

    Abstract : Quinoa stalks were used as a source of hemicellulose for XOs production and further as prebiotic source for probiotic bacteria. Three methods for extraction of hemicellulose were used, of which alkaline extraction (NaOH [0.5 M]) was the optimum method. READ MORE

  4. 4. Lignocellulosic Ethanol Production: Studies on Sugarcane Bagasse, Paja Brava, Wheat Straw, Quinoa Stalks and Curupaú

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Cristhian Carrasco; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Steam pretreatment; ethanol production; SSCF; arabinosylated aromatics; SO2; H2SO4; sugarcane bagasse; paja brava; wheat straw; quinoa stalks; Anadenanthera colubrina;

    Abstract : Lignocellulosic biomass refers to plant material that is composed mainly of cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin. These materials are today of large interest to researchers in the field of biofuel and bioenergy. READ MORE

  5. 5. The Challenges of Analyzing the Molecular Properties of Starch

    University dissertation from Lund University (Media-Tryck)

    Author : Daysi Pérez; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Amaranthus caudatus; Chenopodium quinoa; Chenopodium pallidicaule; Canna indica; Lepidium meyenii; Xanthosoma sagittifolium; Manihot esculenta; starch; amylose; amylopectin; field-flow fractionation; size distribution; dissolution;

    Abstract : Both the nutritional and functional properties of starch are directly influenced by the molecular structure of its polymers: amylose and amylopectin. It is therefore important to have reproducible methods for quantifying the molecular size. READ MORE
