In the YouTube video "Pó de Urucum pode ter produção intensificada após novos estudos" (Urucum Powder: Intensified Production After New Studies), researcher Eliane Fab from the Institute of Agronomic Economics of São Paulo discusses the growth of the Urucum market due to rising demand and new studies. Brazil, the world's largest producer, with over 6,000 tons produced annually, has seen expansion through increased demand, additional purchases, and innovative production methods. Eliane highlights the importance of ongoing research to optimize this continually transforming plant's potential. Recent studies uncover the potential for Urucum beyond conventional dye production. Particularly noteworthy are Urucum powder and oil. The former is employed in corante production and contains valuable compounds like tocotrienol and geranil geraniol, prized by the Pharmaceutical Industry. A recent USP-led study discovered the presence of corante throughout the Urucum plant, raising hopes for more productive processing methods and methods for utilizing other parts of the plant. With over 378 genotypes in their germoplasma bank, researchers aim to improve yields and address industry challenges. This breakthrough marks a significant leap forward for the Urucum sector.

  • 00:00:00 In this section of the YouTube video titled "Pó de Urucum pode ter produção intensificada após novos estudos," Eliane Fab, a researcher from the Institute of Agronomic Economics of São Paulo, discusses the recent growth in the Urucum market due to increased demand and new studies. Brazil is the leading producer of Urucum with nearly 6,000 tons produced annually. The market has experienced expansion due to higher demand, more purchases, and new production methods. The Urucum tree is in a continuous state of transformation, and any research that contributes to this cadeia is crucial. New studies suggest the potential for increased production and utilization of Urucum beyond just leaf extraction for the production of dyes. Urucum powder, a lesser-known form of the product, is commonly used in the production of corants, particularly the well-known "coloral." However, the studies also show the potential use of Urucum oil from the seed, which contains active principles of interest to the Pharmaceutical Industry such as tocotrienol and geranil geraniol.
  • 00:05:00 In this section of the video, Eliane Fabl, a researcher from IEA, discusses the potential for increased production of Urucum poupū (butter of Urucum) following new studies. She explains that the long process of extracting and making it commercially viable for various industries has made the role of researchers essential for expansion. The state of São Paulo currently leads in Urucum production, with nearly 6,000 tonnes harvested in 2022 from around 5,000 hectares. Researchers have now found that the cornique (corante) circulates throughout the plant, not just in the seeds. A recent study by researchers at USP and other institutions aimed to clarify the formation and location of this corante within the plant. This discovery could lead to more viable methods for processing other parts of the plant and potentially increase productivity for the industry. The research team, led by Thais Menezes, also maintains a vast germoplasma bank with over 378 genotypes from various locations, which is crucial for improving yields and finding solutions for the sector. Overall, these new findings represent an important development for the Urucum industry.
