  1. An Integrated Fermentation-Ultrafiltration Process for the Production of Xanthan Gum from Whey Lactose

    SBC: BIOPROCESSING INNOVATIVE COMPANY INC            Topic: N/A

    We have developed an enzyme process to produce GOS from whey lactose. GOS is a prebiotic with wide applications in human and animal foods. However, glucose and galactose are also produced in the process and must be removed from GOS because these monosaccharides do not have and can reduce the prebiotic effect. Xanthan gum is a microbial polysaccharide widely used as a suspending, stabilizing, and t ...

  2. Enhancing Pork Quality and Value Using Live Animal Ultrasound Technology for Better Breeding and Marketing Decisions

    SBC: BIOTRONICS, INC            Topic: N/A

    Over the past 15 years, the emphasis on selecting for leaner pigs with larger loineye areas and high percent lean cuts has resulted in meat with lower water-holding capacity, lower intramuscular fat (IMF), and lower scores for juiciness, flavor and overall pork quality. Swine breeders need a genetic selection tool to help reverse this trend. The purpose of this project is to build on several years ...

  4. TMI Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Operation on Animal-Waste Derived Ammonia Fuel

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY MANAGEMENT INC            Topic: N/A

    Biomass offers extremely high potential as a carbon-neutral fuel source for power generation. Ammonia pollution from agricultural sources, particularly animal waste presents a serious chronic problem. Technology Management, Inc (TMI) proposes to demonstrate how ammonia contaminated biogas produced from wet biomass can be converted into useful electricity and heat by employing the Solid Oxide Fuel ...

  5. Production and Storability of Capscium Baccatum, A Novel Specialty Pepper

    SBC: Wilson`s Cedar Point Farm            Topic: N/A

    Farmers in Kentucky are looking for ways to diversify their production and marketing. High value crops, such as specialty peppers may provide one avenue for diversification. However, storability of certain specialty peppers has not been determined, and if the peppers can not be stored, the opportunities for shipping to distant markets may be serverely limited. Opportunities for diversification may ...
