Preparation and availability analysis of glycoprotein from canola meal

J Food Sci Technol. 2021 Jan;58(1):377-382. doi: 10.1007/s13197-020-04586-0. Epub 2020 Jun 23.


The purpose of this study is to examine the possibility of use in various fields such as cosmetics and food industry by extracting, separating, and purifying canola glycoprotein(hreinafter referred to as CNG) and comparing general characteristics and physiological activities with commercially available carrot glycoprotein(hreinafter referred to as CRG). The CNG had a protein content of 13.12%, which is higher than that of common vegetable glycoproteins, and much higher than the CRG of 2.36%. The molecular weight distribution of the CNG was 263-310 Da, which showed a lower molecular weight distribution than the 566-628 Da of the CRG. The total polyphenol content of the CNG was 29.89 mg/g, which was higher than that of the CRG measured at 1.76 mg g-1. The DPPP radical scavenging activity of CNG and carrot glycoprotein were 10.07 mg mL-1 and 7.76 mg mL-1, respectively, indicating that CNG had slightly higher electron donating ability than CRG. Total antioxidant activity of CNG was 26.84 mg AA eq/g and CRG was 10.53 mg AA eq/g.
