Potentiality of Lipase in the Bioconversion Processes of Vegetable Oils from the Amazon


Amazonian vegetable oils can be used as raw materials for cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and human and animal feeding. The region has long provided natural, unprocessed raw materials with no additional value. As a result, developing (bio) technical processing of these inputs and commercialising them with high added value is strategic. The industrial scale synthesis and manufacturing of molecules with high added value, such as lipases, dyes, functional foods, and cosmetics, might support the sensible use of Amazonian biodiversity as a source of “fine chemicals,” so consolidating the region’s modern bioindustry.
