Why my samples havn't been digested compeletly?
- Mohammed Al-Qazzaz
I have samples of food waste, consist of rice and chicken meat waste, . I want to digest the samples to analysis crud protein. Also, I ash some samples before I digest to analyize Ca and P. For cude protein samples,the problems are the samples can not digest completely in spite of I use one tablet, H2O2 and H2so4. the temperture for first hour is 220 C and for the second hour is 410 C.The samples become milky color and still like this even I keep them in digester for 4 to 5 hours. Also, after I ash some samples to Ca and P analysis. The samples are still black color after I have digested for 10 hours in spit of it should be less than 30 minutes

What happened to my procedure to result in a very low yield of XOS production from rice bran?
- Pannapapol Jaichakan
My hemicellulose extraction step;
1) defatted rice bran
2) destarch by amylase (termamyl)
3) deprotein by NaOH at pH 11
4) alkali treatment for hemicellulose extraction by 1.25 N of NaOH for 24 hr at room temp. Then the supernatant was adjust to pH 4.8. The resides was not recover. Then 3 volume of EtOH 95% add for precipitation hemicellulose.
5) 3% of extracted hemicellulose of 10 ml mix with endo-xyalanse from Neocallimastix
Please recommend me, there is any step was wrong or not?
