Abstract

Microbial lipases from Candida cylindracea, Pseudomonas sp., Mucor miehei and Candida antarctica were screened for their ability to incorporate conjugated linoleic acid into butteroil triacylglycerides. The lipase from Candida antarctica was employed in a substrates-only medium to increase the conjugated linoleic acid content of the acylglycerides from 0.6 to 15 g/100 g fat.
