The semi-solid wastes (pomace or alperujo) produced in the two-phase olive oil extraction process contains extremely high organic load and phenolic substances. Efficient treatment of such kinds of wastes using membrane filtration, should be sought to reduce the hazardous effects to the environment. On the other hand, phenolic compounds can be isolated and purified up to a level of commercial exploitation using the membrane technology. Firstly, the extraction process with mixtures of water and ethanol was optimized by testing extraction parameters (e...

BACKGROUND: Controlling the interfacial concentrations of antioxidants (AOs) in O/W emulsions can be regarded as an unique approach for increasing the efficiency of AOs in inhibiting the oxidation of lipids. Classical methods to determine the AO distribution in binary systems cannot be employed and their distribution needs to be assessed in the intact emulsion. RESULTS: We have employed a well-established kinetic method to determine the distribution of a homologous series of AOs derived of chlorogenic acid in olive oil-in-water emulsions and analyse the effects of AO hydrophobicity on their distributions and their efficiencies...

Saturated fatty acids, such as palmitate, lead to circadian disruption in cell culture. Moreover, information regarding the effects of unsaturated fatty acids on circadian parameters is scarce. We aimed at studying the effects of low doses of saturated as well as unsaturated fatty acids on circadian metabolism in vivo and at deciphering the mechanism by which fatty acids convey their effect. Mice were fed non-obesogenic doses of palm or olive oil and hepatocytes were treated with palmitate and oleate. Mice fed non-obesogenic doses of palm oil showed increased signaling towards fatty acid synthesis, while olive oil increased signaling towards fatty acid oxidation...

Vegetation plays an important role in the partitioning, transport, and fate of semivolatile hydrophobic organic chemicals (HOCs) in the environment. Leaf/air partition ratios ( Kleaf/air ) of HOCs are highly variable for different plant species. The differences cannot be fully explained by the fraction of lipids in the leaves or the thickness of the cuticle. Our goal was to elucidate the importance of nonpolymeric lipids in determining Kleaf/air . To do this, we extracted organic matter from 7 plant species using solvents that do not extract the polymeric lipids cutin and cutan, to yield extractable organic matter (EOM)...

Olive mill wastewaters (OMW) are the major effluent deriving from olive oil production and are considered as one of the most challenging agro-industrial wastes to treat. Crude glycerol is the main by-product of alcoholic beverage and oleochemical production activities including biodiesel production. The tremendous quantities of glycerol produced worldwide represent a serious environmental challenge. The aim of this study was to assess the ability of Yarrowia lipolytica strain ACA-DC 5029 to grow on nitrogen-limited submerged shake-flask cultures, in crude glycerol and OMW blends as well as in media with high initial glycerol concentration and produce biomass, cellular lipids, citric acid and polyols...

The two-phase continuous centrifugation process for olive oil extraction generates high amounts of olive oil mill wastewater (OMW), characterized by containing large concentrations of numerous contaminant compounds for the environment. An integral process based on physico-chemical (flocculation, photolysis and microfiltration) and microalgal growth stages was proposed for its treatment. Chemical oxygen demand (COD) removal percentages were 57.5%, 88.8% and 20.5% for flocculation, photolysis and microfiltration, respectively...

Droplet-stabilized emulsions use fine protein-coated lipid droplets - the shell - to emulsify larger droplets of a second lipid - the core. This study investigated the oxidation resistance of polyunsaturated fatty acid oil (PUFA oil) within droplet-stabilised emulsions, using shell lipids with a range of melting points: olive oil (low melting), trimyristin (high-melting) and palmolein oil (intermediate melting point). Oxidation of PUFA oil was accelerated with a fluorescent lamp in the presence of ferrous iron (100 μM) for nine days, and PUFA oxidation was monitored via conjugated dienes, lipid hydroperoxides and hexanal levels...

The induction period for crystallization, defined as the time required to crystallize, was discussed during isothermal storage at -5 to -45°C for various vegetable oils; olive, safflower, rapeseed, corn, rice bran, soybean, and linseed oils. The induction periods, largely dependent on the oil type and storage temperature, were classified into two groups. The induction periods of corn, rice bran, soybean, and linseed oils were monotonically shortened as the storage temperature decreased. On the other hand, the induction periods for rapeseed, olive, safflower oils and the mixtures of rapeseed and soybean oils, and of olive and safflower oils did not simply change or elongate with a decrease in storage temperature...
