MetadataShow full item record
Kafirin purification process was developed to accommodate both sorghum grain and DDGS with “Quality by Design” (QbD) based approach that assures consistent product quality and facilitate scale-up to commercial scale and technology transfer. Purified kafirin was paired with different plasticizers to develop a screening platform. Kafirin-based biomaterials such as an enteric coat for pharmaceutical drugs, food-grade spray coat to increase shelf life of food materials, films and microparticles were developed and tested.

Optimizing prednisolone loading into distiller’s dried grain kafirin microparticles, and in vitro release for oral deliveryLau, E.; Johnson, Stuart; Williams, B.; Mikkelsen, D.; McCourt, E.; Stanley, R.; Mereddy, R.; Halley, P.; Steadman, K. (2017)Kafirin microparticles have potential as colon-targeted delivery systems because of their ability to protect encapsulated material from digestive processes of the upper gastrointestinal tract (GIT). The aim was to optimize ...
Effect of kafirin-based films incorporating citral and quercetin on storage of fresh chicken filletsGiteru, S.; Oey, I.; Ali, M.; Johnson, Stuart; Fang, Z. (2017)This study investigated mechanical and bioactive properties of kafirin films consisting of 2.5% citral (CK), 2% quercetin (QK) or 1.25% citral + 1% quercetin (CQK). Incorporation of citral reduced the maximum stress (smax) ...
