Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer is the capital of the Camargue, located east of Montpellier, with a population of 2500 (50.000+ during summer holidays).

The town is not only a sea resort, it is also a pilgrimage destination for Roma (Gypsies), who gather yearly for a religious festival in honor of Saint Sarah. Dark-skinned Saint Sarah is said to have possibly been the Egyptian servant of the three Marys.

The day of the pilgrimage honouring Sarah is May 24; her statue is carried down to the sea on this day to re-enact her arrival in France.

According to various legends, during a persecution of early Christians, commonly placed in the year 42, Lazarus, his sisters Mary Magdalene and Martha, Mary Salome (the mother of the Apostles John and James), Mary Jacobe and Maximin were sent out to sea in a boat.

They arrived safely on the southern shore of Gaul at the place later called Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. In another version Sarah was a local woman who welcomed the three Marys on their arrival.

A statue of Ste. Sarah is in the crypt of the church, which also encloses a 4th-century BC pagan altar.

The three saints Mary Magdalene, Mary Salome and Mary Jacobe, whose relics are the focus of the devotions of pilgrims, are believed to be the women who were the first witnesses to the empty tomb at the resurrection of Jesus.

Graphical Abstracts are now part of the electronic article version

In addition to the inclusion of Graphical Abstracts in eTOC, Graphical Abstracts are now displayed on Wiley Online Library both in the abstract only version for readers with no access to full-text and in the full-text HTML and enhanced HTML versions. This has been implemented in Early View and in Issues starting with the current July issue.

Review: Tiger nut oil

Tiger nut is considered an under researched food plant by the United Nations but the oil has considerable potential for exploitation: it has a high content of monounsaturated fatty acids and its fatty acid composition is similar to olive oil. This Review by researchers from University of Readingthe University of Reading, UK presents the current knowledge and research trends concerning tiger nut oil.

Lipid Technology

Mimicking natural oil bodies for stabilising oil-in-water food emulsions

This Feature describes a novel technique which has the potential to prevent lipid oxidation in food emulsions. Highly unsaturated fatty acids which are constituents of oilseeds can be incorporated in to food emulsions in the form of intact oil bodies. The oil body technology can be applied to any oil, including oils which do not constitute natural oil bodies such as fish oil.

The use of lipids as phase change materials for thermal energy storage

Phase change materials are capable of absorbing and releasing large amounts of thermal energy as latent heat at constant temperature as they undergo a phase transition, commonly between solid and liquid phases. This Feature gives a brief overview of phase change materials, highlights the various types of lipid substances examined for PCM applications, and suggests potential future areas of study.

Short Course: Fundamentals of Edible Oil Refining, Processing and Quality Management

3th Practical Short Course

Fundamentals of Edible Oil Refining, Processing and Quality Management
Crowne Plaza Montpellier Corum - Montpellier, France - 13-14 September 2014


A program dedicated to technical and new plant personnel, R&D, formulation and marketing staff, active in Oils & Fats processing and formulation. As part of the Advanced Oil Processing series, Smart Short Courses joins with the 12th EuroFedLipid Conference in Montpellier, France, with the fully updated "Fundamentals of Oil Processing" program.

This 1.5-day short course will bring together industry experts from around the world offering practical information on oilseed and oil processing and quality issues and how to integrate these in downstream products. The program is directed at plant engineers, chemists, technicians, managers, and superintendents from the Americas.

The course material will also serve as a useful reference for processors, product formulators, chemists and technicians as well as business managers familiar with oils & fats processing, and the production of finished products.
