Enzymatic procedure is one of the advantageous methods for the industrial production of L-amino acids. In this review, the enzymatic resolution of DL-amino acid and other enzymatic methods mainly studied by the author are described. Some of the results of the application of amino acids to foods are also discussed.
The under-water experiment of cereals storage was designed and carried out at well and pond. Practical usefullness of laminates as packing materials has been well recognized in laboratory scale experiments but not evaluated yet in a practical scale. A large-scale experiment for practical use of this new storage method was carried out at Lake Biwa over a rainy season in order to ascertain the usefullness of the packing materials and to investigate the possible changes that might occur in the cereals stored under such a closed system. Experimental conditions, place, method, kinds of cereals, packing materials and storage system (open, air, CO2), selected or determined in this paper were found satisfactory for the purpose.
