Beneficial effects of three brown seaweed polysaccharides on gut microbiota and their structural characteristics: An overview
(Wiley on behalf of the Institute of Food Science and Technology, 2019-10-06)
The gut microbiota appears critical in the metabolic health and anti-disease activity. In this review, we discuss three brown seaweed polysaccharides (alginate, laminarin, fucoidan) for their structural information, the ...
Antimicrobial activity of Arg–Ser–Ser against the food-borne pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa
(Wiley on behalf of Institute of Food Science and Technology, 2019-07-15)
We had previously reported a peptide sequence, Arg–Ser–Ser (RSS), which was identified after coincubation of an edible orchid species, Dendrobium aphyllum, with Lactobacillus amylolyticus. In this study, we investigated ...

Effects of pulsed electric fields pretreatment on the quality of jujube wine
(Wiley-Blackwell for Institute of Food Science and Technology, 2019-05-30)
Pulsed electric fields (PEF) accounts for one of the novel non-thermal processing and preservation technologies and is regarded as an emerging application with the advantage of minimising the loss of valued bioactive ...
Hydrophobicity-modulating self-assembled morphologies of α-zein in aqueous ethanol
(Wiley Online on behalf of the Institute of Food Science and Technology, 2016-12)
Protein fibrillation serves a broad range of biological functions from surface colonising to mechanically reinforcing structures; it is also associated with the development of neurodegenerative disorders. Although fibrillation ...
Preparation and characterisation of novelty food preservatives by Maillard reaction between ε-polylysine and reducing sugars
(Wiley on behalf of the Institute of Food Science and Technology, 2019-05)
In order to enhance the application scope and usage effect of ε-polylysine, it was modified by Maillard reaction through endowing antioxidant activity. Characterisations of different type of reaction systems were investigated. ...
A randomized trial investigation an iron-rich bread as a prophylaxis against iron deficiency in pregnancy
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of Informa Healthcare, 2012-06)
The iron-rich bread (2.2 mg iron per 50 g slice) used in the study was developed using Eragrostis tef flour, naturally rich in iron. Iron deficiency is prevalent in pregnancy and compliance with supplements can be low. In ...
The sensory acceptance of fibre-enriched cereal foods: A meta-analysis
(Wiley on behalf of the Institute of Food Science and Technology, 2016-01)
Improved understanding of the sensory responses to fibre fortification may assist manufacturers and health promotion efforts. The effects of fibre fortification (or modified ingredients) on sensory acceptability of baked ...
Effect of thermal processing on phenolic profiles and antioxidant activities in Castanea mollissima
(Wiley on behalf of the Institute of Food Science and Technology, 2017-02)
The effect of three domestic thermal processing methods on chestnut fruit was analysed in this study. By evaluating the changes of the contents of free and bound phenolic profiles as well as the antioxidant activity in ...
Temperature alters the structure of membrane lipids and pulsed electric field (PEF) resistance of Salmonella typhimurium
(Wiley Online on behalf of the Institute of Food Science and Technology, 2017-02)
The effect of culture temperature on the conformation of membrane lipid of Salmonella typhimurium as well as their pulsed electric field (PEF) resistance was investigated. Results revealed that S. typhimurium cells cultured ...
