Contents on the CD Rom

  • Zein is a major storage protein and makes up approximately 45-50% of the protein found in corn
  • Corn gluten is subjected to the combination of enzymatic starch hydrolysis, alkaline treatment, alcohol washing and alcohol extraction to produce a substantially starch-free, deflavored and decolored zein which is suitable for use in foods and pharmaceuticals
  • Dry mill ethanol production leaves a by-product called Dry Distillers Grains with Solubles (DDGS). Zein, a protein in corn, is left in the DDGS. Removing the zein from DDGS, could increase the supply of this protein available for commercial uses
  • Zein is the main protein present in corn and is potentially a large co-product of the bio-ethanol industry
  • Zein applications include: specialty coatings for pharmaceutical tablets, candies, nuts, and paper products, chewing gum, adhesives and binders, ink, cosmetics, fibers and textiles, resins and biodegradable plastics and high-value biomedical application
  • Currently, zein can be extracted from corn gluten meal, a by-product of the wet milling process. However, current extraction and purification technologies are such that the price of zein limits current market applications. Yet, there are several technology companies/institutions currently working to develop an economically viable extraction and/or purification process.
