(IN) TORTA DE ALGODÃO Processo de destoxificação de torta de semente de algodão

Cottonseed cake

Detoxification process of cottonseed cake 


  • Animal nutrition (monogastric and polygastric).


Degradation process of antinutritional or toxic compounds (gossypol and phytate) present in cottonseed cake by cultivation of macrofungi, with formation of bioactive metabolites (polysaccharides, proteins, sterols, carotenoids, among others) in the pretreated biomass.


  • Increased digestibility and metabolizable energy of the feedstock through partial delignification and depolymerization of biomass.
  • Alternative treatment of oilseed cakes with restricted use due to toxic factors in animal nutrition.
  • Bioenrichment of cottonseed cake with incorporation of bioactive microbial metabolites.
  • Reuse of residues.
