Journal Article
De Chirico, S., Di Bari, V., Foster, T., & Gray, D. A. (2018). Enhancing the recovery of oilseed rape seed oil bodies (oleosomes) using bicarbonate-based soaking and grinding media. Food Chemistry, 241, doi:10.1016/j.foodchem.2017.09.008. ISSN 0308-8146

An aqueous process for the recovery of oil bodies from rapeseed using sodium bicarbonate-based soaking and grinding media (pH 9.5) was investigated. The effect of the ratio between seed and mass of media during grinding and molarity of the medium use... Read More
