TL;DR: The development of biorefineries represents the key for access to an integrated production of food, feed, chemicals, materials, goods, and fuels of the future.
Abstract: The development of biorefineries represents the key for access to an integrated production of food, feed, chemicals, materials, goods, and fuels of the future [1]. Biorefineries combine the necessary technologies of the biogenic raw materials with those of intermediates and final products. The main focus is directed at the precursors carbohydrates, lignin, oils, and proteins and the combination between biotechnological and chemical conversion of substances. Currently the lignocellulosic feedstock biorefinery, green biorefinery, whole corn biorefinery, and the so-called two-platform concept are favored in research, development, and industrial implementation.

TL;DR: Small changes in diet can alter the balance of colonic bacteria towards a potentially healthier microflora, and a 15-g.day-1 dietary addition of oligofructose or inulin led to Bifidobacterium becoming the numerically predominant genus in feces.

TL;DR: In this article, an edible wheat gluten film was developed and effects of gluten concentration, ethanol concentration (ET) and pH of the film-forming solution on various film properties were evaluated using Response Surface Methodology.
Abstract: An edible wheat gluten film was developed and effects of gluten concentration, ethanol concentration (ET) and pH of the film-forming solution on various film properties were evaluated using Response Surface Methodology. pH and ethanol concentration had strong interactive effects on film opacity, water solubility and water vapor permeability. A simultaneous variation of ethanol concentration and pH between 32.5% ET, pH 4 and 45% ET, pH 2 resulted in homogeneous and transparent film with relatively low water solubility. The lowest water vapor permeability would be expected with 20% ethanol concentration and pH 6. Mechanical properties were mainly affected by gluten concentration and pH. The most resistant film was obtained at high gluten concentration (12.5%) and pH 5.

TL;DR: In this article, the glycerol ameliore l'extensibilite mais reduit la resistance a la rupture, l'elasticite, les proprietes barriere a la vapeur d'eau.
Abstract: Le glycerol ameliore l'extensibilite mais reduit la resistance a la rupture, l'elasticite, les proprietes barriere a la vapeur d'eau. L'effet plastifiant est tres dependant de la teneur en eau du film. Au cours de la rehydratation du film de gluten on observe une diminution importante de la resistance a la rupture, de l'elasticite et une augmentation de l'extensibilite et de la transmission de vapeur d'eau, pour des temperatures 5, 30 et 50¼C avec respectivement des teneurs en eau de 30 (0,8 aw), 15 (0,7 aw) et 5% (0,4 aw). Ceci peut-etre correlle a la rupture de liaison polymere-eau ainsi qu'au phenomene de transition vitreuse
