Abstract

The present work describes the product driven process synthesis (PDPS) methodology for the conceptual design of extraction of intact oil bodies from soybeans. First, in this approach consumer needs are taken into account and based on these needs application of the final product (oil bodies) is defined to use extracted oil bodies for food industry as natural antioxidant agents. Furthermore, we defined fundamental tasks followed by an appropriate mechanism to convert an input (soybeans) into a desired output (intact oil body structure). Based on these fundamental tasks logical alternative process flow sheet was generated. The most promising of these alternatives were experimentally tested. It has been found that ultrasound reduced the remaining insoluble fraction and increased the amount of solids (around 60 %) extracted into the aqueous phase which also resulted into higher protein extraction up to 26 %. This has a positive effect on the stability of extracted oil bodies.
