ORBi Open Repository and Bibliography
In may 2007, the ULg's Administrative Board (joined in June 2007 by the FUSAGx) decided to create an institutional repository and defined a strong institutional self-archiving policy to increase the visibility, accessibility and impact of the University's publications (Board's decision).
This decision led to the official launch, in November 2008, of the ORBi platform including both the Academic Bibliography and the Institutional Repository of the Wallonia-Europe University Academy.
Etude des propriétés de surface et techno-fonctionnelles des fractions protéose-peptones - Karamoko, Gaoussou
The total proteose-peptone fractions are complex heterogeneous mixture of thermoresistant proteins of whey. The general objective of this work was to contribute to a better knowledge and understanding of surface properties and techno-functional properties (foaming and emulsifying properties) and well as setting a relationship between the different properties. In this work, PPT fractions were extracted according to a classical approach and other industrially transposable by considering respectively the skimmed UHT milk and whey protein concentrate (WPC) as raw materials. The using of such both sources allowed to highlight the fundamental differences in the composition of the extracts of PPT. This...
Locusts and Grasshoppers: Future Foods? - Paul, Aman; Frederich, Michel; Uyttenbroeck, Roel; Hatt, Séverin; Blecker, Christophe; Francis, Frédéric; Monty, Arnaud; Haubruge, Eric; Danthine, Sabine
Consuming locusts and grasshoppers as food is not a new concept, because some people have been doing it for a long time and there are many references in the religious literature to support this. About 80 locust and grasshopper species are consumed worldwide, and the large majority of grasshopper species are edible. From the nutritional point of view they are an excellent source of proteins, lipids and other minor components like vitamins and minerals. They are an excellent source of amino acids and their lipids contain a large majority of unsaturated fatty acids. Environmentalists have supported human consumption of grasshoppers...
Chemical analyses of the seeds from Prunella vulgaris: A chemotaxonomic approach - Paul, Aman; Frederich, Michel; Cieckiewicz, Ewa; Blecker, Christophe; Heuskin, Stéphanie; Lognay, Georges; Danthine, Sabine
Common self-heal (Prunella vulgaris) plants are traditionally sown along the border of crops to enhance the biodiversity. Besides enhancing the biodiversity, they can also be a source of interesting compounds which could be important for food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. The seeds of Common Yarrow were investigated for proteins, fatty acid compositions and polyphenolic compounds. The protein content was analyzed according to Dumas method, the extraction of oil was done using a cold extraction technique employing 2:1 chloroform/methanol as solvent, the fatty acid composition was determined using the gas chromatography and the amount of polyphenolic compounds were estimated using the...
