The influence of disposal technology obtained with alkaline treatments on D-amino acid content of slaughterhouse waste
In our experiment the change in D-amino acid content of slaughterhouse waste due to the treatments was examined. The treatments were done with sodium and potassium hydroxide solution, respectively, for 2, 3 and 6 hours at 135, 150 and 153 °C. Summarized, it can be said that due to the heat and alkali combinations we used aspartic acid, glutamic acid, tryptophan and isoleucine transform in 40−50% into the D-isomer. Even though the hydrolysed product obtained this way met in other parameters the requirements of the modern feeding, one should be expect that most of the amino acids undergo full racemization during this process.
