Camelina Biotechnology

Summary: The transesterification method of 2‐MAGs from vegetable omega‐3 sources like camelina oil, with marine EPA and DHA FAEEs, opens new approaches for developing VLC‐PUFA fortified functional foods. Results demonstrate the efficiency of this enzymatic method for enriching camelina oil in EPA and DHA, and offer a very effective strategy for the development of omega‐3 enriched products from other vegetable oil sources like chia or echium as ingredients for functional foods with recognized health claims for applications in nutraceutical and food industries. Camelina oil proved to be an excellent source to enzymatically produce 2‐MAGs enriched in omega‐3 ALA. Moreover, lipase...
