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.
Grasshoppers: Food Security & Nutrition - Paul, Aman; Danthine, Sabine; Frederich, Michel; Uyttenbroeck, Roel; Francis, Frédéric
Rising economies and rapid urbanization in developing countries, particularly in Asia, are creating shifts in the composition of global food demand, so it is necessary to explore new sources of food with better nutritional profile. Among the alternative food that exists are the grasshoppers, about 80 species of which are consumed worldwide. Grasshoppers are not only rich source of proteins and lipids but also some important minor component like vitamins and minerals. Apart from being nutritionally superior to most conventional meats their production results in lower emission of greenhouse gases & ammonia, risk of zoonotic infections in humans is much...
Physicochemical properties of lipids extracted from Tenebrio molitor larvae - Danthine, Sabine; Blecker, Christophe; Paul, Aman; Frederich, Michel; Alabi, Taofic; Lognay, Georges; Fauconnier, Marie-Laure; Francis, Frédéric
Objectives: To determine the physicochemical properties of the oil obtained from Tenebrio molitor Larvae and explore its potential as edible oil.
Methodology: Oils obtained from five batches of Tenebrio molitor Larvae were investigated. Among the samples, three were produced directly in the lab (3 different productions) and 2 were purchased from a local supplier. In addition to the total lipid content (solvent extraction), both FA (GC) and TAG (HPLC) profiles were determined. Thermal properties by DSC were also estimated.
Results and conclusion: The fresh Larvae from the lab contained 52% of total proteins (% dry matter). Their total fat content was...
