Dear Reader,

the Euro Fed Lipid newsletter has been issued monthly since September 2005 and enjoys a continually growing number of subscribers ever since.

The newsletter archive is frequently visited by Internet users and is also a valuable resource.

The roots of our address database reach far beyond the internet age and but into analog times where terms like "data" or "data protection" were unheard of.

After 150 issues, each with the option to unsubscribe in a very simple way, it is safe to assume that nobody is on the list of recipients who does not want to be there.

However, in case you are (no longer) interested in information provided by us, we encourage you to unsubscribe by notifying us by E-mail (, phone (+49 69 7917 345), fax (+49 69 7917 564) or any other means of communication.

The last thing we want to do is to annoy recipients.

For those of you addicted to Euro Fed Lipid news we offer a special service: In addition to the monthly newsletter with general information we do further mailings to special interest groups. If we know that your scientific interest is Lipid Oxidation we are able to provide more detailed announcements in this special area. The same applies for most other areas of Lipid Science and Technology.

Please contact us if you wish to be placed on one or more of these special interest mailing lists.

Among other things Euro Fed Lipid is devoted to distribute knowledge about oils, fats and lipids and arousing public interest and understanding. Mailings to interested persons are an important way to achieve this.

Castles in Northern Ireland

Impressive picture-postcard castles pepper the Northern Ireland landscape, perched atop dramatic cliff edges and overlooking tranquil lakes and rivers. Here are eight stunners to look out for on your next holiday.

Belfast Castle The fairy-tale beauty of Belfast Castle is rivalled only by the sublime sea and city views looking out from its ornate towers and gardens. Originally completed in 1870 in the Scottish baronial style, this was always intended to be an exquisite mansion rather than a defensive fort. It now boasts an antiques shop, restaurant, visitor centre – and even a cat garden with a good story behind it. Belfast Castle estate is situated on the lower slopes of Cave Hill Country Park in north Belfast.

It contains both parkland and mature mixed woodland and offers superb views of the city from a variety of vantage points. The estate is home to many different species of wildlife, including long-eared owls, sparrowhawks and Belfast’s rarest plant, the town hall clock.

Dunluce Not to be missed on a trip through the Causeway Coastal Route, Dunluce Castle is one of Northern Ireland’s most famous and most photographed landmarks. The medieval ruin stands on the edge of a cliff and can be approached only by a bridge.

Dating from 1500, it has a fascinating history – it was once owned by Winston Churchill.
First built on the dramatic coastal cliffs of north County Antrim by the MacQuillan family around 1500, the earliest written record of the castle was in 1513.

It was seized by the ambitious MacDonnell clan in the 1550's, who set about stamping their mark on the castle under the leadership of the famous warrior chieftain Sorely Boy MacDonnell during an era of violence, intrigue and rebellion.

In the 17th century Dunluce was the seat of the earls of County Antrim and saw the establishment of a small town in 1608. Visitors can explore the findings of archaeological digs within the cobbled streets and stone merchants’ houses of the long-abandoned Dunluce Town.

The dramatic history of Dunluce is matched by tales of a banshee and how the castle kitchens fell into the sea one stormy night in 1639.

EJLST Highlights May

A Sustainable Tandem Catalysis Approach to Plant Oil-Based Polyols via Schenck-Ene Reaction and Epoxidation
Maike Unverferth and Michael A. R. Meier

A tandem catalytic approach to introduce three OH-groups per double bond of unsaturated fatty acid derivatives is described. The photocatalytic Schenck-Ene reaction of in situ produced 1O2 with allylic positions of the double bonds leads to hydroperoxides that subsequently serve as oxidant in a titanium(IV) isopropoxide catalyzed epoxidations. The thus obtained epoxy alcohols result in three OH-groups after hydrolysis.

Lipid Metabolism Milk Fat Globule in Ruminant: Major and Minor Compounds, Nutritional Regulation and Differences Among Species
Review Laurence Bernard, Muriel Bonnet, Carole Delavaud, Mylène Delosière, Anne Ferlay, Hélène Fougère and Benoît Graulet
Version of Record online: 3 APR 2018 | DOI:10.1002/ejlt.201700039

This review synthesizes data on the composition of the milk fat fraction in ruminant species, reports advances in nutritional strategies to alter their amounts and species-specific responses to nutrition, as well as the potential effects on human health of the major and minor components of this fraction.

Oxidative Stability

Storage Stability of DHA in Enriched Liquid Eggs
res1 Dorota Klensporf-Pawlik, Felix Aladedunye and Roman Przybylski
Version of Record online: 5 MAR 2018 | DOI:10.1002/ejlt.201700164

Liquid omega eggs are, unfortunately, more susceptible to oxidation than regular liquid eggs under simulated long time storage. The high concentration of unsaturated fatty acids improved their nutrition value but at the same time these products are less stable and unfavorable changes are more prominent. Therefore, the very long chain fatty acids in liquid omega eggs should be protected from undergoing deterioration. Although, the liquid omega eggs samples are stored at refrigerated temperature, significant changes are observed. The storage period led to a modification of the odor of liquid omega eggs, the increase in the fishy odor intensity is noticeable. And for the consumer, off-flavor is generally the first factor which will make the product unacceptable.
