  • Under Weightiness among Ever-married Non-pregnant Women in Bangladesh: A
           Population Based Study

    • Abstract: Publication date:  May 2015
      Source:Universal Journal of Food and Nutrition Science  Volume  3  Number  2  Md. Shafiur Rahman   Md. Nazrul Islam Mondal   Md. Rafiqul Islam   Kazi Mohiuddin Ahmed   Md. Reazul Karim   and Md. Shamsher Alam   The increasing prevalence of under weightiness among young women is a growing public health concern. This paper identified the determinant factors of under weightiness among non-pregnant ever-married women in Bangladesh. Data and necessary information of 16,206 non-pregnant ever-married women were extracted from the Bangladesh Demographic and Health Survey 2011. The chi-square test and binary logistic regression analysis were used as the statistical tools to analyze the data. The results revealed that the women are found underweight around two times more (15.4% in urban, and 28% in rural) in the rural areas than that of urban areas in Bangladesh. Almost all the factors are found statistically significantly associated with underweight for both urban and rural areas. The binary logistic regression model identified the higher risk of being underweight in the younger age group (15-24 years), illiteracy, husband's illiteracy, having more children, poor economic condition, not having exposure to mass media, household food unsecured, and genital discharged women for both urban and rural areas. The under weightiness among non-pregnant ever-married women for both urban and rural areas are prevalent. Therefore, there is a need for public health programs related to nutrition that are able to address both the areas simultaneously.

  • Effect of Pre-treatments and Drying Methods on Dehydration and Rehydration
           Characteristics of Carrot

    • Abstract: Publication date:  May 2015
      Source:Universal Journal of Food and Nutrition Science  Volume  3  Number  2  Muhammad Al-Amin   Md. Sajjad Hossain   and Abdullah Iqbal   The study was conducted to evaluate the effect of pre-treatments (0.1%KMS, 0.2%KMS, 0.3%KMS and blanching) and drying methods (mechanical drying and solar drying) on the dehydration and rehydration characteristics of carrot. The two drying methods yielded dehydrated products with different dehydration ratio, rehydration ratio, co-efficient of reconstitution and moisture content in both the dehydrated and rehydrated materials. It was seen that the drying time has been influenced by pre-treatments and drying methods. Pre-treatments increased drying time (for 0.3%KMS) and higher drying time (for 0.3%KMS) was required in solar drying. Pre-treatment, drying methods and boiling time affected the various rehydration properties. Highest rehydration ratio (3.70) and co-efficient of reconstitution (0.48) values were found for 0.1% KMS pre-treated mechanically dried and 0.2% KMS pre-treated solar dried carrots, respectively. Mechanical drying method was found better both for dehydration and rehydration properties for all the pre-treatments for example, 0.1%KMS pre-treated carrot gave co-efficient of reconstitution 0.48, while this value was 0.45 for same pre-treatment in solar drying.

  • Comparative Analysis of the Physico-chemical and Antioxidant Properties of
           Honey Available in Tangail, Bangladesh

    • Abstract: Publication date:  Feb 2015
      Source:Universal Journal of Food and Nutrition Science  Volume  3  Number  1  MR Linkon   Utpal Kumar Prodhan   Toufiq Elahi   Jalal Talukdar   and Md. Abdul Alim   The aim of the current study was the comparative analysis of the physical, biochemical and antioxidant properties of Mustard, Litchi, and Nigella honey. The physical parameters include the mean moisture content of Mustard, Litchi and Nigella honey were found 14.32%, 15.27%, and 14.12% respectively; PH content were 6.97, 5.8, 4.78; the TSS content were71%, 70%, and 73% respectively. The biochemical parameters including protein content were 1.103%, 0.57% and 0.985%; mean ash content were 0.2%, 0.19%, and0.188%, total carbohydrate content were 84.377%, 83.97% and 84.496% and the minerals contents Na were 539.238 ppm, 424.3565 ppm and 588 ppm; K were 239.216 ppm, 219.017 ppm and1063.774 ppm; Ca were 1710.499 ppm, 611.4852 ppm and 75.4 ppm for the Mustard, Litchi and Nigella honey respectively. The Antioxidant properties such as polyphenol content were found 42.572 ± 0.00529 mg gallic acid/50 ml, 30.625 ± 0.00529 mg gallic acid/50 ml and 95.5 ± 0.00529 mg gallic acid/50 ml; flavonoid content were found 1.052 ± 0.000577 mg catechin/50 ml, 0.6 ± 0.000577 mg catechin/50 ml and 2.66 ± 0.000577 mg catechin/50 ml and vitamin C content were 0.41 mg/100ml, 0.63 mg/100ml and 0.7 mg/100ml for Mustard, Litchi and Nigella honey respectively.

  • Changes in Lipid Profile of Wistar Rats after Sustained Consumption of
           Different Types of Commercial Vegetable Oil: A Preliminary Study

Ferriz   Elsa Gutiérrez   Konigsmar Escobar   Araceli Aguilera   M. Aracely Anaya   Teresa García-Gasca   Olga P. García   and Jorge L. Rosado   The amount of lipids in a diet and their source are determining factors of the lipid profile. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the addition of six types of different commercial vegetable oils (avocado, canola, high oleic safflower, soybean, grape seed and partially hydrogenated vegetable oil) to the diet of Wistar rats at two different concentrations (14.4% and 25.6% of energy intake from each added oil) and check rats’ tolerance and lipid profile effect following consumption for 5 weeks. Rats fed with soybean and avocado oils had significantly lower LDL (29.27 ±8.85 and 26.51±10.85 mg/dL, respectively) and total cholesterol values (48.10±11.41 and 45.83±5.78 mg/dL, respectively) vs. treatment with hydrogenated oil (p

  • Prevalence and Determinants of Anaemia among Adolescent Girls in Secondary
           Schools in Yala Division Siaya District, Kenya

    • Abstract: Publication date:  Feb 2015
      Source:Universal Journal of Food and Nutrition Science  Volume  3  Number  1  Damaris Nelima   Approximately half of adolescent girls living in Sub-Saharan Africa are anemic. Anaemia is associated with lower physical work capacity, impaired cognitive functioning and lower school achievement among adolescents. This study was done to determine factors associated with the prevalence of anaemia among adolescent girls aged 14-18 years old within Yala division, Siaya District, Kenya. A mixed method multistage sampling was used to select 230 female students. Blood and stool samples were analysed for anaemia, malaria and worm infestation respectively. Questionnaires were used to assess intake of dietary iron. Results showed 26.5% , 41.3%, 7.4% prevalence anaemia (Hb
