20150915 Wageningen University B.V. – Mrs. Lena Jankowiak – “Isolations of Isoflavones from Okara”

This directly transmitted Webinar from Chili presents the development at WUR of a sustainable non-toxic solvent process to recover isoflavones from Okara a byproduct of soymilk. Okara is rich in dietary fiber, proteins, vegetable oils and food ingredients, amongst which 0,1%. Isoflavones comprising 4 groups of each 3 beneficial compounds. From the physical properties of the compounds, the best approach was extraction combined with a modified adsorbent.

The non-toxic solvent of choice appeared not to be the best in a combined system, because it has to function more as a carrier. Combined A/E however increases yield, while allowing a drastic decrease of liquid-solid ratio. Implementing the technology is feasible. https://www.wageningenur.nl/en/Publication-details.htm?publicationId=publication-way-343536333533
