  • The Nutritional Quality of Dried Salted Cod: the Effect of Processing and
           Polyphosphates Addition

    • Authors: Bárbara Teixeira; Rogério Mendes
      Pages: 304 - 312
      Abstract: This work investigated the effect of the industrial and domestic processing, including the use of polyphosphates, in the amino acids profile of dried salted cod. Amino acids contents fluctuated throughout the processing. The loss of nutritional quality (e.g. decrease of glutamic acid and taurine) could be due to solubilization of free amino acids, peptides, and proteins in brine, in drained water during dry-salting, and also in the desalting water. Changes in the amino acids contents were also related with variations in moisture and salt contents of cod products. The use of polyphosphates also affected amino acids contents in wet salted cod, dried salted cod, and desalted cod. In general, fresh cod and desalted cod presented similar and well-balanced amino acids compositions, with high amounts of glutamic acid (2.5-2.8 g/100g ww), aspartic acid (1.6-1.8 g/100g ww), leucine (1.2-1.4 g/100g ww), and lysine (1.1-1.2 g/100g ww), while histidine had the lowest amino acid score. The data obtained can be used by nutritionists for more informed diet recommendations in response to consumer demand for healthy habits.

  • Chlorogenic Acid Decreases Lipid Accumulation in 3T3-L1 Adipocytes by
           Modulating the Transcription Factors

    • Authors: Ching-Chih Liu; Jen-Yin Chen, Chin-Chen Chu, Shih-Ying Chen, Heuy-Ling Chu, Pin-Der Duh
      Pages: 313 - 319
      Abstract: The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of chlorogenic acid (CA) on 3T3-L1 adipocytes and its mechanism action. CA at 1-25 μM showed no cytotoxicity to 3T3-L1 pre-adipocytes and 3T3-L1 adipocytes. CA significantly inhibited oil red O-stained material (OROSM) and intracellular triglyceride levels in 3T3-L1 adipocytes in a concentration-dependent manner. In addition, CA down-regulated the glycerol-3–phosphate dehydrogenase (GPDH) and peroxisome proliferator–activated receptor γ (PPARγ) activity. A real-time polymerase chain reaction revealed that CA inhibited the PPARγ, CCAAT/enhancer-binding protein alpha (C/EBPα), sterol regulatory element binding protein-1c (SREBP-1c), and fatty acid synthase (FAS) gene expression, which may in part account for anti-adipogenesis of CA. Thus, CA could act as a potential lipid lowering functional resource.

  • Prevalence and Risk Factors of Malnutrition among Children of Ages 6 to 59
           Months in Manyovu, Buhigwe District Kigoma-Tanzania

    • Authors: Yvonne Tshiya; Happy Magoha
      Pages: 320 - 328
      Abstract: Malnutrition among children below 5 years is a recognized problem worldwide and more so in sub-Saharan Africa. This study aimed at finding the prevalence and risk factors of malnutrition among children of ages 6 to 59 months in Manyovu, Buhigwe District Kigoma, Tanzania. Knowledge of the prevalence of malnutrition and their risk factors in the community will serve the purpose of designing and implementing a program that targets this challenge with a view to ameliorating it. A total number of 362 children and their mothers were involved. Anthropometric data of children, breastfeeding practices, 24h dietary recall of both mothers and children and socio demographic/economic status of both parents and children were taken. The findings were as follows: underweight 9.7 %, stunting 43.1%, and 3.6% wasting. The risk factors found to be significant were education level of both parents, and earnings per month of both parents. Breastfeeding and dietary assessment did not have any statistical effect to malnutrition of the children possibly because of poor knowledge of nutrition and feeding practices. The children in the study were already consuming other food and were not only breastfeeding at the time they were recruited in the present study. Therefore, this study confirms the existence of child malnutrition in Manyovu and the surrounding communities. The level of malnutrition in this community is relatively high and requires a closer look with a view to determining strategies for mitigating them.

  • Promotion of Human Milk Substitutes in the Opinion of Mothers of Young
           Children

    • Authors: Barbara Baranowska; Antonina Doroszewska, Dorota Sys, Iwona Kiersnowska, Agata Aleksandrowicz, Urszula Bernatowicz-Łojko, Michał Rabijewski, Anna Kajdy, Aleksandra Wesołowska
      Pages: 329 - 336
      Abstract: Background. The International Code of Marketing of Breast-milk Substitutes was established to reduce the detrimental effect of promotional activities of companies producing BMS on attitudes towards breastfeeding. Objective. The study was carried out to assess maternal opinions on promotional activities related to BMS in medical facilities, participation of medical staff in advising mothers to feed children with BMS, and other promotional activities related to those products. Design. This study was part of the Netcode survey. Data was collected via structured interviews and the results were analyzed with the use of descriptive statistics and Chi-Square Post-Hoc analysis using the program SPPS. Settings. Poland. Participants. Women caring for children age 0-36 months (N =380). Results. More than one third of the interviewed women (35%) declared that they were informed to give milk products other than human milk to children below 6 months of age (n=132). Among people recommending these types of products, women mostly indicated health care professionals. In health centers mothers were mainly exposed to brochures and have received free samples of BMS. Conclusions. The investigation has shown a substantial exposition of women to marketing of BMS, with significant involvement of medical professionals. Promoting BMS to mothers who can feed naturally, without providing them enough support to continue natural feeding is unethical. Measures should be implemented to better adhere to the Code.

  • A Critical Review of the Association between Nutrition and Health in
           Modern Chinese Diet

    • Authors: Shengwei Sun; Huajia Li, Guo Liu, Jian Zhang
      Pages: 337 - 346
      Abstract: Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), obesity, diabetes, cancers and other chronic diseases are becoming main contributors to the global burden of disease, even as nutritional deficiencies are receding as leading contributors to mortality and disability. Diet is closely related to nutrition and health, which has been extensively investigated as risk factors for major chronic diseases. The past two decades have witnessed rapid changes in dietary pattern in China. However, a critical thinking of Chinese diet behind these changes is less emphasized. Given the causal relationship between nutrition and disease, lack of adequate nutrition and unhealthy diet habits might be responsible for the high incidence of chronic diseases in China in recent years. To this end, we will critically review some open problems in current diet compositions and the importance of regular mealtimes. The intake level of dietary supplements in China will also be discussed.

  • Persistent Inadequacies in Infant and Young Child Feeding Practices and
           Their Determinants

    • Authors: Mariam Anees; Atta -ur-Rehman, Abdul Momin Rizwan Ahmad, Sidra Bukhari, Muhammad Hamid Siddique, Umar Farooq, Aneesa Sultan, Iram Murtaza, Riffat Aysha Anis
      Pages: 347 - 354
      Abstract: Background: Malnutrition is a major public health problem and is directly associated with poor infant and young child feeding (IYCF) practices. The study aimed to identify the inadequacies in the feeding practices for children aged 0-23 months through a cross-sectional KAP survey. Methods: Data was collected on demographic indicators, IYCF practices, 24 hours dietary recall, childhood illnesses and anthropometrics and compared with WHO guidelines. Results: Only 44.8% mothers timely initiated breastfeeding, 57% fed colostrum and 32.9% practiced exclusive breastfeeding. Only 63.2% children were breastfed beyond first year and 42.2% up to second year. Nearly half of the children were introduced to complementary feeding at 6-8 months. Minimum meal frequency (MMF) was offered to 57.5%, minimum dietary diversity (MDD) to 53.2% and minimum acceptable diet (MAD) to 37.1%. Prevalence of childhood illnesses was high. Prevalence of stunting, wasting and underweight was 19.1%, 4% and 11.4%, respectively. Mother’s working status was positively associated with timely initiation of breastfeeding (OR 1.82; 95% CI 1.17, 2.83) and MDD (OR 1.53; 95% CI 0.93, 2.51) but inversely associated with exclusive breastfeeding (OR 0.52; 95% CI 0.16, 1.66). Colostrum was given by mothers with better socioeconomic status (OR 1.3; 95% CI 0.84, 2.04) and higher education level (OR 1.22; 95% CI 0.71, 2.08). Socioeconomic status directly affected MDD (OR 2.32; 95% CI 1.40, 3.83) and MAD (OR 1.51; 95% CI 0.90, 2.54). The health status of children was positively impacted by exclusive breastfeeding (OR 2.33; 95% CI 0.89, 6.14), timely introduction of complementary feeding (OR 1.39; 95% CI 0.86, 2.26), MMF (OR 1.38; 95% CI 0.82, 2.32) and MAD (OR 1.30, 95% CI 0.77, 2.20) and negatively impacted by bottle feeding (OR 0.79; 95% CI 0.50, 1.27). Conclusions: The mothers showed moderate to low compliance to WHO IYCF indicators despite high educational status. The inadequacies in IYCF practices demand for immediate awareness interventions.

  • Effect of Feeding Regime on Meat Quality of Elk Deer Loin during Aging

    • Authors: Kwan-Woo Kim; Hye-Jin Kim, Hee-Jin Kim, Sung-Soo Lee, Eun-Do Lee, Dong-Kyo Kim, Sang-Hoon Lee, Aera Jang, Jinwook Lee
      Pages: 355 - 361
      Abstract: The study aimed to investigate the effects of feeding regimes on chemical composition, meat quality, and fatty acid composition of elk deer loin (EDL) while aging at 4°C. Sixteen 3-year-old elk hinds were randomly assigned to one of two dietary treatments: pasture grazing (PG) and barn feeding (BF). While eight elks grazed on pastures with supplementary feed of 1.0% of body weight (PG), the remaining eight elks were fed 1.0% of concentrate with hay ad libitum for 5 months in a barn (BF). After slaughtering, EDL was dissected and aged for 56 days at 4°C under vacuum packaging. Proximate composition, physicochemical characteristics, and fatty acid composition of EDL were determined thereafter. Proximate composition of EDL showed no significant difference between feeding regimes and across aging period. The pH values of EDL increased with increase of storage days. Drip loss increased by day 14, compared to that on the first day, and shear force decreased during aging. Water holding capacity and cooking loss were not significantly affected by feeding regime or aging period. Lightness (L*) and redness (a*) were decreased on day 56 compared to the initial day. Yellowness (b*) of EDL decreased with increase of aging time. The α-linolenic acid, eicosapentaenoic acid, and docosahexaenoic acid content was higher in PG treatment and increased with aging duration. Both feeding regimes and aging were found to affect meat quality and fatty acid profiles.

           Secondary Metabolites

    • Authors: Nasiruddin; Guangying Chen, Yu Zhangxin, Ting Zhao
      Pages: 362 - 377
      Abstract: Endophytes are plant inhabiting microorganisms that possess a big and untapped source of natural products with unique chemical structures and biological activities for pharmaceutical and agriculture industry. About, several hundred of endophytes are associated with plants. Metabolites isolated from endophytes with diverse structures belong to alkaloids, steroids, terpenoids, flavonoids, phenols, flavonoids and others. The discovery of an array of therapeutic products has diverted the scientist’s interest from plants to these microorganisms. Hundreds of natural compounds have been obtained and structurally classified while other new active metabolites are under investigation. This present review is an approach to summarize some chemical classes of bioactive compounds obtained from these microorganisms and paving the way for future work.

  • Antoxidative Activities and Liver-protective Effects of Myelophycus
           simplex Extract

    • Authors: Sang Jae Kwak; Hyun Woo Kang
      Pages: 378 - 381
      Abstract: The free radical scavenging activity of extracts prepared from Myelophycus simplex was evaluated by using an ESR spectrometer. For this study, Myelophycus simplex was 70% ethanol extraction was performed. Myelophycus simplex extracts scavenged DPPH, hydroxyl, superoxide, and alkyl radicals. Especially, the extracts exhibited the highest scavenging activity on hydroxyl radical, which is deemed of the strongest radical. In addition, we also evaluated the protective effects of Myelophycus simplex extract on 3.5% alcohol-induced damage (oxidative stress) in normal liver cells. The Myelophycus simplex extract inhibited productions of reactive oxygen species (ROS), and cell death against alcohol-induced liver cell damage. It was presumed that the Myelophycus simplex extract was involved in regulation of apoptosis-related pathway in the cell environments. These results indicate that Myelophycus simplex extract possess antioxidative activity on liver cells.
