Approaches to Enhance Stability, Delivery and Antimicrobial Activity of Natural Bioactives
The significance of this work is the development of natural antimicrobial systems that will preserve self life of natural products without the use of artificial preservatives. Because natural products have not be able to use effective preservatives they faces shorter shelf lives or the need for being in the frozen case. These new systems make natural products preform with longer shelf lives making their costs similar to other artificial items.
Enzyme-assisted Aqueous Extraction Processing: A Sustainable Approach
Dr. Bell is at the start of developing techniques the will eliminate the need to extract products like stevia using hexane. Hexane and other solvents being used today to make a variety of natural products should be prohibited shortly which will leave no way to produce these important items in the natural products marketplace. Juliana has found methods to get the same results without the use of questionable solvents.
