Statistical modeling and optimization of enzymatic milk fat splitting by soybean lecithin using response surface methodology

Fat splitting using enzyme is important in reducing the fat content of human body. Hence in the present work, fat splitting of milk butter was attempted using soybean lecithin. A 3-level central composite design was used for optimization of process variables such as of initial butter, initial enzyme concentration, temperature and digestion time on percentage fat splitting using soybean lecithin. The influence of...

Oxidative stress in the liver of exercised rats supplemented with creatine

This study examined the effects of aerobic training and creatine supplementation on biomarkers of oxidative stress in the liver of rats. Ninety-day-old adult male Wistar rats were divided into four groups: 1) Trained Supplemented (TS), 2) Trained (T), 3) Control Supplemented (CS) and 4) Control (C). Trained rats ran on a treadmill for 40 min a day, 5 days a week, at a speed equivalent to their individual Maximal Lactate...
