  • Effects of Picking Methods and Cultivation Areas on Biochemical
           Composition of Leaves from Longleaf Morphotype of Lippia multiflora Grown
           in Côte d’Ivoire

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2018Source: Food and Public Health, Volume 8, Number 4Fako Kane, Kouakou M. Dje, Tia J. Gonnety, Irié A. Zoro Bi, Albert Yao-Kouame, Patrice Lucien KouameThe effect of three cultivation areas and two picking methods were evaluated on the biochemical composition of longleaf morphotype of Lippia multiflora (llmLM), to determine how areas and picking method provide leaves with good quality for the production of tea. Results revealed significant variability of leaves composition according to areas and picking method. Leaves from Korhogo were rich in most essential compound such as fat (8.36 mg/100g dw), total phenolic compounds (TPC) (2233.33 mg/100g dw), caffeine (20.97 mg/100g dw), catechin (59.51 mg/100g dw), tannins (14.33 mg/100g dw) and quercetin (1.06 mg/100 g dw), than those from Béoumi and Bondoukou. Fine picking (LsFP) which consist in removing the bud and the two leaves below, provided the highest amount of the majority of compound than leaf samples of coarse picking (LsCP) that concerned picking from buds to fourth leaves below. Ca (7301-10833 ppm), K (1557-7950 ppm), Mg (3060-5449 ppm), Na (1047-1319 ppm) were the most abundant mineral in llmLM leaves. However, result showed that leaves mineral content depend to the cultivation zone. This study revealed that Korhogo is the best area for growing llmLM. Furthermore, fine picking method is the best way to collect the leaves for a good quality tea.
       
  • The Association between Residence in a Food Desert Census Tract and
           Adherence to Dietary Patterns in the REGARDS Cohort

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2018Source: Food and Public Health, Volume 8, Number 4Marquita S. Gray, Sindhu Lakkur, Virginia J. Howard, Keith Pearson, James M. Shikany, Monika Safford, Orlando M. Gutiérrez, Natalie Colabianchi, Suzanne E. JuddIncreased interest in determining areas in need of improved food access led the U.S Department of Agriculture (USDA) to define food desert census tracts; however, no nationwide studies have compared dietary patterns in food desert tracts to other tracts. Our objective was to examine dietary patterns in residents of food desert and non-food desert census tracts. We performed a cross-sectional analysis of 19,179 participants in the REasons for Geographic and Racial Differences in Stroke (REGARDS) study enrolled January 2003-October 2007. We used participants’ geocoded address with USDA Food Desert Locator to identify food deserts and multivariable-adjusted odds ratios (ORs) to calculate adherence to Southern, Plant-based, and Mediterranean dietary patterns. Odds of adherence to the Southern dietary pattern were higher among white high school graduates (OR=1.41; 95% CI: 1.20-1.67), white college graduates (OR=1.91; 95% CI: 1.55-2.35) and black college graduates (OR=1.38; 95% CI: 1.14-1.68) who reside in a food desert versus non-food desert. Odds of adherence to the Plant-based dietary pattern were 15% lower among non-southeastern residents (OR=0.85; 95% CI: 0.72-0.99), who reside in food desert versus non-food desert. No statistically significant differences were observed for the Mediterranean dietary pattern. Residents living in food deserts had lower adherence to healthy dietary pattern than residents not living in food deserts; the association may vary by race, education, and region.
       
  • Nutritive Value of Bark Extracts from the “White Variety” of Byttneria
           Catalpifolia, a Wild Edible Plant, Consumed as Stem Vegetable in Western
           of Côte d’Ivoire

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2018Source: Food and Public Health, Volume 8, Number 3Gonou Aline Tokpa, Chépo Ghislaine Dan, Tia Jean Gonnety, Meuwiah Betty Faulet, Kouadio Ignace Kouassi, Adama Bakayoko, Kouakou BrouAnalysis of bark extracts from “white variety” of Byttneria catalpifolia were assessed in order to provide consumers with information on the nutritive potential of this wild edible plant. Ash, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, fat and moisture were measured using AOAC methods in bark and mucilage. The minerals were analyzed by a variable pressure Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), the amino acid by HPLC and iodine was determined by titrimetry. The bark powder of Byttneria catalpifolia presented the highest percentage of ashes (9.04 ± 0.15% DM), crude fiber (54.50 ± 0.50% DM), total sugar (164.02 ± 0.00 mg/100g DM) and vitamin B9 (254.10 ± 7.50 mg/100g DM). Valine, methionine, arginine, threonine, tyrosine and lysine are more concentrated in mucilage than others extracts. The predominant minerals were Ca (990.04 mg / 100 g DM) and K (995.07mg / 100 g DM) in the bark. But, iodine rates were in the bark, the pellet and mucilage (13.12; 12.70 and 6.35 μg/100g DM) respectively. Thus, the consumption of the bark powder would be more advantageous because it could contribute more to the nutritional requirements of consumers than the mucilage.
       
  • Nutritional Status of under Two Years Old Infants in the Pastoral
           Community of Somali Regional State, Ethiopia: Case of Awbare District

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2018Source: Food and Public Health, Volume 8, Number 3Mulubrhan Kahsay, Tadele Tuba, Yerega Belete, Anbisa Muleta, Natnael TadesseBackground: Infants are at increased risk of malnutrition afterward of six months, when breast milk alone is no longer sufficient to meet their nutritional requirements. However, there has limited published documents in the study area. Thus, study was aimed to assess the complementary feeding practices and nutritional status of infants and young children aged 6–23 months at Awbare district of Somali Region, Ethiopia. Method: A community-based cross sectional study was employed in Awbare district on 180 mother-child pairs. Anthropometric measurements were collected from children aged 6–23 months and analyzed using ENA software. The Descriptive statistics was used to express results by frequency, percent (%) and mean. Result: The result of our study indicated that 6.1%, 56.1%, 10.0% of children in Awbare district were wasting, stunting and underweight respectively. Conclusion: The prevalence of under nutrition; stunting, underweight and wasting, among under-two children is very high in the study area. Thus, an intervention should be done by governmental and non-governmental organizations that aim at improving children’s nutritional status.
       
  • Chemical and Nutrition Potential of Amazonian Seeds: Cupuassu and Tucuman

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2018Source: Food and Public Health, Volume 8, Number 3Luiza Silva, Rutelene Pinheiro, Ladyslene Paula, Katia Fernandes, Antonio RodriguesThe main chemical and nutritional compounds in the kernels of cupuassu (Theobroma grandiflorum) and tucuman (Astrocaryum aculeatum) were evaluated using analyses of centesimal composition, mineral content, ant nutritional factors, amino acid profile, fatty acid profile, and morphology. The chemical composition revealed that both kernels have high lipid content (>43%) made up of saturated and monounsaturated fatty acids, besides all essential amino acids. Potassium, phosphorus, and magnesium were found to be the main minerals present. Among the ant nutritional factors investigated, no hemagglutination activity, cyanogenic compounds, or trypsin or α-amylase inhibitors were found. High phenolic compound contents were found in both kernels. The constituents identified in the kernels are mainly made up of lipids, carbohydrates, and proteins, which makes them foods with high nutritional and energy values. Both can be directly consumed or added to the preparation of food products or may be applied in the food, cosmetic, and pharmaceutical industries.
       
  • Evaluation of Microbiological Quality and Safety of Milk and Dairy
           Products with Reference to European and Gulf Standards

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2018Source: Food and Public Health, Volume 8, Number 2Mohamed G. El-ZineyThis study investigated the microbiological quality and safety of milk and dairy products including pasteurized milk, pasteurized cream, cultured dairy products (labneh), a wide range of cheese varieties (fresh, soft, semi-hard, hard and processed cheese) and ice cream obtained from Qassim market, Saudi Arabia. The samples were evaluated for microbiological criteria; which included Salmonella sp., and Listeria monocytogenes; served assafety index criteriawhereas, aerobic plate count (APC), Enterobacteriaceae and Escherichia coli were considered as quality guideline criteria. The outcome results were checked in accordance with the European Regulation EC 2073/2005 and Gulf standards GSO /FDS 1016 / 2014. None of the samples tested contained Salmonella sp. or L. monocytogens with 100% compliance with the standards. Regards to APC level, unacceptable levels were only found in pasteurized cream samples (25%) whereas, processed cheese, pasteurized milk, and ice cream graded as satisfactory according to standards. The highest level of Enterobacteriaceae was detected in soft cheese while 42.85% and 23.8 were unacceptable according to Gulf standards and EU regulation respectively. Also, E. coli were existed only in soft cheese with 14.3% rejected samples. It worth noting, that critical processing evaluation and reevaluation of HACCP plan should be considered to improve the quality of soft cheese products.
       
  • Comparative Assessment of the Heavy and Trace Metal Levels in Honey
           Produced within Nsukka and Enugu Metropolis

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2018Source: Food and Public Health, Volume 8, Number 2Ezeh Ernest, Okeke Onyeka, Ozuah A. C., Nwoye BenardThe concentration of eight heavy and trace metals (Na, K, Hg, Cu, Zn, Cr, Cd and Pb) were determined in honeys produced within Nsukka and Enugu Metropolis using inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer after micro-wave assisted acid digestion. The concentrations of the metals analyzed in the honeys from the studied environments were compared using ANOVA. The study detected the eight heavy and trace metals in the honey samples at concentrations within their respective WHO permissible limits. The mean concentration of the metals in the honey produced within Nsukka metropolis decreased in the following order: K> Na> Cu> Zn> Cr> Pb> Cd> Hg, with values of 163.47 ± 18.10, 90.74 ± 10.33, 58.11 ± 6.94, 40.06 ± 9.63, 6.67 ± 0.61, 0.175 ± 0.030, 0.088 ± 0.026 and 0.046 ± 0.012 µg/g respectively. Also, the mean concentrations of the metals in the honey produced within Enugu metropolis decreased in the following order: K> Na> Cu> Zn> Cr> Pb> Hg> Cd, with values of 136.05 ± 11.26, 72.82 ± 8.14, 45.57 ± 6.46, 37.11 ± 7.30, 5.40 ± 0.95, 0.35 ± 0.08, 0.163 ± 0.03 and 0.130 ± 0.067 µg/g respectively. With the exception of Zn, the concentrations of the other studied metals in the honeys produced from the two environments were statistically significant at p< 0.05.
       
  • Technological Processes Itinerary and Socio-economic Impact Assessment of
           Borassus aethiopum Hypocotyles “Agonté” Produced in Centre of Benin
           Republic

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2018Source: Food and Public Health, Volume 8, Number 2Brice M. Ohin, Kifouli Adeoti, Pacôme A. Noumavo, Sonangnon H. S. Kouhounde, Kamal Garba, Noel S. Tovide, Sabine Ogoua, Lamine Baba-Moussa, Fatiou Toukourou, Farid Baba-MoussaSince a few years, Borassus aethiopum hypocotyle, called Agonté in Benin, is more and more produced, processed, marketed and consumed in the large urban centers of Benin. However, its diverse modes of consumption are not documented and thus are little known. In this context, this study was performed to investigate the derived products from the transformation of Agonté. Face-to-face interviews of 120 producers, sellers and transformers were conducted. The majority of those interviewed (96.67%) are women. The investigations concerned the production mode, the distribution channel, the consumption mode and the transformation processes of the hypocotyle. Data were analyzed using means, percentage, frequencies and Fischer’s test. The results show that Agonté is used as well in feeding as for therapeutic uses. The most wide-spread mode of consumption is the boiled shape. Besides this shape of consumption, Agonté is also transformed in a craft way into flour, couscous, dry ships, fufu, and gari. Half of the investigated people have an annual income ranged between 800 and 2000 $ US. Due to its importance, Agonté deserves a particular attention for a better processes assessment of derived products.
       
  • Genipap: A New Perspective on Natural Colorants for the Food Industry

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2018Source: Food and Public Health, Volume 8, Number 1Grazielle Náthia-Neves, M. Angela A. MeirelesThe colors in food attract the attention of consumers, trigger emotions and generate expectations about food. Currently, the use of synthetic colorants is more common than natural ones due to their lower cost and greater stability. However, the long-term use of these synthetic additives can cause serious damage to human health. Currently, no colorant with a natural source is used at an industrial scale for obtaining blue pigments. Therefore, it is highly important to find a new source of blue color because food industries use it in many products, such as ice cream, chocolate and candies, which are mainly products intended for children. This review focused on the use of genipap as an alternative for obtaining a natural blue pigment for use in food industries. Additionally, techniques are described for extraction, and the stability of blue pigments and health properties of genipin are discussed. At the end of the review, it was observed that a stable blue pigment can be obtained from genipap. In addition to coloring, these pigments have medicinal properties of great interest to the pharmaceutical industry.
       
  • Food Hygiene Awareness and Environmental Practices among Food Vendors in
           Basic Schools at Kintampo Township, Ghana

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2018Source: Food and Public Health, Volume 8, Number 1Dubik S. Dajaan, Henry O. Addo, Ojo Luke, Afoakwa Eugenia, Alhassan Amshawu, Nwolley A. KwasiCooked food are handled by several individuals, these therefore increases the chances of contamination due to inappropriate handling. Contaminated food can have severe consequences on the health of school children as children have poorly developed immunity compared to adults. The study therefore, assesses food hygiene awareness and environmental practices among food vendors in basic schools at Kintampo Township by specifically determining the level of food hygiene awareness among food vendors and by observing environmental practices among food vendors. The study utilized an institutional based cross sectional survey to collect quantitative data from 100 food vendors in 20 basic schools. The quantitative data were coded and analyzed using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) software, version 20.0. It was found that, 91% was aware of food hygiene practices but poor in practice. There was a statistical association between awareness of food hygiene and age (Chi-square=15.505, P
