Abstract

Pretreatment of orange peels with fungal enzyme preparations rich in xylanase, pectinase and cellulases was found to enhance extractability of oil by steam distillation. Gas chromatographic studies revealed a several fold increase in limonene in the extract. Similar pretreatment of defatted seed meals (mustard cake, sesame cake, sunflower seed, soybean meal, groundnut meal, baker's yeast) led to significant increases in the amount of protein extracted.
