Review of non-food, non-feed applications of protein fraction of canola.

Usage Study details Reference

Salt soluble canola protein at pH 7 was made into films with glycerol, sorbitol Chang and Nickerson, 2014
Films with  or PEG 400 as plasticizer with or with genipin as cross linking agent by solution
water barrier  casting, evaluated for physical properties and moisture resistance.
properties Salt soluble canola protein isolate made into solution casted films with glycerol as Shi and Dumont, 2014
 plasticizer, and SDS and stearic acid co-plasticizer. Property evaluation with water
 absorption properties.

Hydrogel Hydrogels prepared from hydrolysed canola proteins graft copolymerization of
as  acrylic acid monomers, structural evaluation and property identification, showed Shi et al., 2014
superabsorbent  very high water absorbing ability with swelling and response to pH and salt.

Protein-based Amino groups of the canola protein hydrolysate peptides acylated with C10 and C12 Sánchez-Vioque et al., 2001
surfactants/foams/  chains assessed for foam generation and stabilization.
interface active Grafting long aliphatic hydrocarbon chains and arylsulfonyl groups to lysyl residues Gerbanowski et al., 1999;
molecules  of canola cruciferin or napin, efficient way of hydrophobicizing to improve surface Krause, 2002
 tension reduction in air/water interface and wettability of thin protein films.

Protein-based plastics Canola protein isolates (alkali extracted and acid precipitated) denatured with Na Manamperi et al., 2010;
 dodecyl sulfate or Na dodecyl benzene sulfonate and plastic-type material prepared Manamperi and Pryor, 2011
 by thermal extrusion and injection moulding process with glycerol as plasticizer and
 with co-polyester, and co-stabilizer PVP and zinc sulfate cross linker and evaluated
 for material properties.
Canola napin isolates (pH 3 extracted) plasticized with glycerol and cross linked Mitra and Wanasundara, 2013
 with HCHO of NaHSO3, made by compression moulding was studied for
 mechanical properties and water vapor barrier properties.

Protein-based Canola protein isolates – poly (glycidyl methacrylate) conjugated formed by free Wang et al., 2014
adhesives  radical polymerization evaluated for mechanical properties and water resistance.

Nanoparticles for control Cruciferin nanoparticles prepared from Ca-induced cold gelation, details of structure Akbari and Wu, 2016
delivery of bioactivities  and using nanoparticles for encapsulating β-carotene for control release.
