This book presents the state of the art on the topic of enzymatic synthesis of structured triglycerides (STs) and diglycerides (SDs). It is focused on special fats and oils that involve a distribution of the fatty acids in specific positions of the glycerol backbone, taking into account the most recent available literature from 2010 through 2016.The current brief addresses the issue of STs and SDs covering scientific and technological aspects, and considering the production, applications, industrial processes and the market. This contribution is divided into six chapters. Chapter 1 reviews several important aspects of structured tri- (TGs) and diglycerides (DGs). The metabolic fate of TGs, as well as the health benefits and nutritional properties of STs and SDs are presented. Several approaches to the reactions leading to STs and SDs are briefly described including chemical and enzymatic interesterification.Chapter 2 focuses on the enzymatic synthesis of STs and SDs considering single/multiple stages and discussing the use of solvents or solvent-free synthesis. The main substrates are presented and critically reviewed. Chapter 3 describes the batch and continuous reactors used in ST synthesis, and analyzes and discusses the several problems found in the literature and in the practical settings for the production ofSTs, especially when a scale-up is considered. Chapter 4 evaluates the potential solutions to the several drawbacks related to laboratory testing of lipases in ST and SD synthesis; economic aspects are also considered here. Chapter 5 contemplates the industrial perspectives on the topic focusing on the feasibility of a stronger interactionbetween industry and academia in order to focus the research on the solution of current problems. Finally, Chap. 6 describes and analyzes the success of some industrial applications of enzymes towards the production of STs and SDs.No se incluye el archivo completo debido a que está publicado en Springer.
