    A method for enhancing the nutritional value of plant tissue by reaction with supercritical water is disclosed. The method comprises: conveying a selected plant tissue material through an extruder, wherein the extruder is configured to continuously convey the plant tissue material to a supercritical fluid reaction zone; injecting hot compressed water into the supercritical fluid reaction zone, while the extruder is conveying the selected plant tissue material into the supercritical fluid reaction zone so as to yield a mixture; retaining the mixture within the reaction zone for a period of time sufficient to yield a plurality of plant tissue reaction products. The reaction zone may be characterized by a tubular reactor having an adjustably positionable inner tubular spear, wherein the tubular reactor and the inner tubular spear further define an annular space within the reaction zone, and wherein the mixture flows through the annular space and into a reaction products chamber or vessel.

    Disclosed is a process for extracting an antioxidant cocktail (containing a number of antioxidative molecules including but not limited to superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase, glutathione, glutathione peroxidase) from animal sources (i.e., blood or liver) so that it can be used as a food and feed preservative in a non-purified state to prevent rancidity. The antioxidant can also be used in other products such as oils, paint, caulking, plastics, or any other product exposed to oxidation. The disclosed antioxidant cocktail can be used in an unpurified state, yet can still function as a potent antioxidant without having to undergo purification via complex, expensive methods such as chromatography or gel filtration.

    The present invention is directed to a frozen sauce component having a high dissolved solids equivalent content and sufficient hardness in manufacturing to permit unitization thereof by cutting. The sauce composition makes use of oil encapsulated solids in a system comprising oil, water, and flavoring ingredients as required by a frozen dish wherein it is incorporated. The freezing point and the necessary hardness of the sauce pellet is about 10 deg. F. to about 19 deg. F. despite the high dissolved solids equivalent content.

    A process for mechanical destructuring of starch-based biomass was developed that makes use of a short application of high compression, impact, and shearing forces. The biomass may be destructured using a specific energy input that is less than 40% of the total combustible energy of the biomass. The destructured starch-based biomass, with or without saccharification and/or in-feed glycosyl hydrolase enzymes, may be used in feed applications. The destructured starch-based may saccharified to produce syrups and fermentable sugars, and for production of products including ethanol using a biocatalyst.

    There is disclosed a method for processing a biomass (for example straw) containing lignocellulose such that cellulose and hemicellulose are made accessible for further processing, typically by decomposition, without needing energy-consuming dissolution of the biomass in water. The method includes repeated compressions of the biomass in a reciprocating piston press, where loose biomass is continuously fed into a piston chamber in front of a piston which moves the loose biomass into a tubular reaction chamber in which the biomass is compressed for producing a vapour explosion and autohydrolysis under simultaneous displacement of compressed biomass through the reaction chamber. After compression, to the biomass can be added fluid livestock manure, fluid waste water sludge etc. in a biogas plant for subsequent biogas processing.
