Reverse micelles, a possible alternative as a protein liquid-liquid extraction method from jackfruit seed, are surfactant molecule aggregates of nanometric size, with their polar groups concentrated in the interior, while their hydrophobic parts extend into and are surrounded by the organic solvent, thermodynamically stable and optically transparent system (Silber, Biasutti, Abuin, & Lissi, 1999; Nandini & Rastogi, 2009).
Since jackfruit seeds are not employed in food industries and since there is a lack of studies on protein extraction from jackfruit seeds by reverse micelles, current research develops an alternative method for protein extraction from jackfruit seed flour using reverse micelles, with sodium dodecyl sulphate (SDS) as surfactant and butanol as organic solvent.
