Summary of "Enzymatic preparation of food-grade l-α-glycerylphosphorylcholine from soy phosphatidylcholine or fractionated soy lecithin."

l-α-Glycerylphosphorylcholine (l-α-GPC) is a biosynthetic precursor for the neurotransmitter acetylcholine in humans, making it a useful as a cognitive enhancer for treating patients with stroke and dementia, including Alzheimer's disease. The aim of this study was to prepare l-α-GPC via Novozym 435 (an immobilized Candida antarctica lipase B)-catalyzed hydrolysis of soy phosphatidylcholine or a fractionated soy lecithin, from which triacylglycerols were completely removed, followed by food-grade solvent extraction of l-α-GPC from the reaction products. The reaction was performed in n-hexane-water biphasic media in a stirred-batch reactor. Phosphatidylcholine was completely hydrolyzed to l-α-GPC under optimal conditions: temperature, 55°C; water content, 100 wt% of the substrate weight; enzyme loading, 10 wt% of the substrate weight; and reaction time of 6 h (for soy phosphatidylcholine) or 8 h (for fractionated soy lecithin). Water-soluble fractions of the reaction products containing 98.6 area% l-α-GPC (from soy phosphatidylcholine) or 52.4 area% glycerophosphodiesters, including l-α-GPC (from fractionated soy lecithin), were obtained after phase separation of the media. The resulting products would be suitable for use as food-grade cognitive enhancers because of the use of enzymatic reaction and food-grade solvent extraction. This article is protected by copyright.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Functions, equipment, and facilities concerned with the preparation and distribution of ready-to-eat food.

Any aspect of the operations in the preparation, transport, storage, packaging, wrapping, exposure for sale, service, or delivery of food.

Prepared food that is ready to eat or partially prepared food that has a final preparation time of a few minutes or less.

Containers, packaging, and packaging materials for processed and raw foods and beverages. It includes packaging intended to be used for storage and also used for preparation of foods such as microwave food containers versus COOKING AND EATING UTENSILS. Packaging materials may be intended for food contact or designated non-contact, for example, shipping containers. FOOD LABELING is also available.

Compounds used in food or in food preparation to replace dietary fats. They may be carbohydrate-, protein-, or fat-based. Fat substitutes are usually lower in calories but provide the same texture as fats.
