SmartBio project – sensor technology for process optimization

Published: 06, 16, 2020 | Updated: 09, 02, 2020

Raw materials often show variation in their composition. For enzymatic hydrolysis it is important that the enzymes can work under the best process conditions. What the best conditions are, will depend on the composition of the raw materials. The SmartBio project helps Bioco to make use of sensor technology to match the process conditions with the composition of the raw materials.

Thomas Aquinas Aloysius defended his PhD thesis 13 September 2019 for the PhD at the University of Bergen (UiB): Chicken protein hydrolysates and chicken oil influence lipid metabolism and inflammation in relation to obesity and atherosclerosis. The doctoral student is from Jaffna in Sri Lanka. He has a Master of Science degree in molecular biology from UiB.

Chicken bones may help fight diabetes in the future

Approximately 8% of the world population has diabetes type 2. This is a condition in which the body is not able to handle the sugars from food efficiently. The body does not make enough insulin and has lost some of its sensitivity to insulin, and therefore blood sugar levels are too high over longer periods, which can be bad for health on the long term. A future solution may be found in chicken peptides.

Can multi-step enzymatic processing unlock the full potential of our raw materials?

Published: 01, 16, 2019 | Updated: 06, 08, 2020

Enzymatic hydrolysis is an important technology for Bioco - it is used to create our poultry protein and oil ingredients. This technology is efficient and creates high quality ingredients – but what if adding additional processing steps could unlock even more of the raw material benefits for our customers? Investigating the potential and added value of multi-step enzymatic hydrolysis processing, or in other words, cascade technology, is the focus of the Notably research project, led by Nofima AS.
