  1. 1. On yeasts from traditional fermented foods - Characterization, phytate degradation, strain improvement and applications

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Linnea Qvirist; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Goat Milk; Saccharomyces cerevisiae; Food Fermentation; Phenotypic Characterization; Phytate; Kluyveromyces marxianus; Phytase; Pichia kudriavzevii; Yaghnob Valley;

    Abstract : Plant materials naturally contain minerals of iron, zinc and calcium. However, plants also contain a compound called phytic acid, which can chelate the minerals and form insoluble complexes. Minerals from plant foods are unavailable for intestinal uptake when they are bound in phytate complexes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Factors Influencing Phytate Degradation in Piglets. Feed phytate behaviour and degradation by microbial phytases

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Katrine Pontoppidan; [2009]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; pigs; in vitro digestion; P. lycii; inositol phosphates; phytate; phytase;

    Abstract : Phytate, the main storage form of phosphorus (P) in plant feedstuffs, is indigestible for monogastric animals, and phytases are therefore used as feed additives to increase the digestibility of phytate-P and limit the inclusion of inorganic P. However, new and improved phytases are needed to obtain better phytate digestibility and allow for lower inclusions of inorganic P. READ MORE
