|[en] rapeseed meal ; hemicellulose ; fractionation|
|[en] Rapeseed meal is one of the main industrial co-products from agriculture in Belgium, with more than 30 000 T produced each year. Beside its agricultural and energetic applications, new paths of valorization are being developed in order to add value to the rapeseed meal, usually by extraction of interesting molecules.
In this thesis project, the aimed molecules are hemicelluloses, which are obtained via a global fractionation method that is being developed and optimized, constituting the first part of this project. Indeed, while rapeseed meals are globally already well exploited (mainly for their feed value), rapeseed hemicelluloses have not yet been studied for food application. Yet, hemicelluloses can be used as food additives (thickener, stabilizer, etc) mainly in bakery products. The literature being incomplete regarding the chemical structure of rapeseed hemicelluloses, one of the objectives of this project is to study their physicochemical properties, in regard with their technofunctional properties.
Rapeseed hemicelluloses can also be used as raw material to produce an emergent type of prebiotic: xylooligosaccharides (XOS). These molecules can be introduced as well in the food supplement sector. Their production will be achieved by enzymatic hydrolysis, for a polymerization degree between two and five. Thus, the production and the physicochemical and technofunctional characterization of rapeseed XOS constitute the last objective of this project.
This thesis is part of the SYNBIOFOR project, which aim is to create new symbiotic ingredients.
