The newly developed process incorporates ferulie acid into soybean oil, producing water- resistant feruloyl soy gylcerides capable of absorbing UVA and LWB light.
Scientists have developed a new method for converting soybean oil into a highly effective bio-based sunscreen active ingredient, called feruloyl soy glycerides (FSG), which does not carry the potential health concerns of ingredients in some existing sunscreens.
These cross-links involve oxidative coupling of polysaccharides and glycoproteins by phenollic groups of feruloyl or p-coumaroyl or isodityrosine bridges, and of the monolignols (Cassab & Varner 1988).
Whereas, feruloyl esterase production from Bacillus pumillus was checked in the range of 3 to 46 hours and found that, maximum enzyme production was achieved at 226 hours incubation and reduced with further incubation (44).
Five phenylpropanoids (sinapoyl malate feruloyl malate caffeoyl malate coumaroyl malate 5-hydroxyferuloyl malate) and two glucosinolates (glucobrassicin and neoglucobrassicin) were identified in aromatic region as previously reported by our group [25 26].
