What is it about?
Edible insects are rich in oil and protein resources, and has it become increasingly important to develop them reasonably when resources are increasingly scarce. However, due to the challenges in recovering enzymes in the enzyme-assisted aqueous extraction technique and the remaining organic solvents in the extraction process based on organic solvent, it is difficult to achieve simultaneous utilization of oil and protein from edible insects. Hence, an improved enzyme-assisted aqueous extraction process based on the assistance of chitosan cross-linked Fe3O4 nanoparticles (CNPs) immobilized enzymes and divalent copper ions chelation, CNPs@Cu-Trypsin-assisted aqueous extraction technique, was first proposed.
