  • Accumulation and speciation of selenium in biofortified vegetables grown
           under high boron and saline field conditions

    • Abstract: Publication date: 30 March 2020Source: Food Chemistry: X, Volume 5Author(s): Gary S. Bañuelos, John Freeman, Irvin ArroyoAbstractSelenium (Se) biofortification, as an agronomic-based strategy, is utilized to produce Se-enriched food products for increasing Se intake in inhabitants in Se-deficient regions. This strategy can be accomplished by soil and foliar application of Se or by growing crops in soils naturally high in Se. In this study, different cruciferous vegetables were field-grown in high boron (B) and saline soils of central California containing naturally high levels of Se. We investigated whether Se biofortification occurs in salt- and B-tolerant vegetables grown in poor-quality soil. The uptake of Se and other elements occurred in all vegetables. In plant tissues, Se speciation analyses showed greatest percentages of Se-containing compounds were contained in organic Se forms (monomethylated) and as selenate in the inorganic Se forms. Selenium-enriched vegetables produced from saline soils high in B and Se can be a natural source of Se-biofortified food that can be consumed as bioactive food products.
       
  • Influence of storage conditions and packaging of fortified wheat flour on
           microbial load and stability of folate and vitamin B12

    • Abstract: Publication date: 30 March 2020Source: Food Chemistry: X, Volume 5Author(s): Youna M. Hemery, Laura Fontan, Arnaud Laillou, Vincent Jallier, Regina Moench-Pfanner, Sylvie Avallone, Jacques BergerAbstractFlour fortification with folic acid (FA) is implemented in many countries, and the fortification of flour with vitamin B12 has been planned. However, vitamins losses can occur during storage. In this study, fortified wheat flour was packaged either in paper bags or multilayer aluminum/PET bags, and stored in controlled conditions of temperature (25 °C or 40 °C) and relative humidity (65% or 85% RH) for 6 months. FA content, cyanocobalamin content, and microbial quality were regularly assessed. In flours packed in multilayer bags (non-permeable to oxygen and humidity), no significant FA and cyanocobalamin losses were observed, irrespective of temperature and RH. In flours packed in permeable paper bags, the microbial quality deteriorated in flours stored at 85% RH, FA loss reached 22–53% after 6 months at 85% RH, whereas cyanocobalamin loss reached 49–63% after 6 months at 65% RH. This shows that, depending on environmental conditions, packaging choice is of critical importance.
       
  • Potassium bicarbonate improves dough and cookie characteristics through
           influencing physicochemical and conformation properties of wheat gluten

    • Abstract: Publication date: 30 March 2020Source: Food Chemistry: X, Volume 5Author(s): Gengjun Chen, Ruijia Hu, Yonghui LiAbstractBaking soda (NaHCO3) has critical technological functions in cookie products. Health concern on excessive sodium consumption is increasing; therefore, it is necessary to explore NaHCO3 alternatives, such as KHCO3, for bakery products. This study investigated the impact of KHCO3 on the technological behaviors of cookie dough and end-uses in comparison with control samples prepared with NaHCO3 and explore the changes of physicochemical and conformation properties of soft wheat gluten during the process. Dough rheological measurements demonstrated that addition of KHCO3 reduced dough stickiness, and adding KHCO3 achieved similar dough and baking performances as using NaHCO3, which were partially attributed to the decrease of gliadin to glutenin ratio, changes of secondary structure, and intensive aggregation of gluten by introducing KHCO3. Cookie sensory attributes were also not adversely affected by using KHCO3. Therefore, partially replacing NaHCO3 with KHCO3 in cookie products can be an effective approach for sodium reduction.
       
  • Active food packaging through controlled in situ production and
           release of hexanal

    • Abstract: Publication date: 30 March 2020Source: Food Chemistry: X, Volume 5Author(s): Mari Lehtonen, Sonja Kekäläinen, Ida Nikkilä, Petri Kilpeläinen, Maija Tenkanen, Kirsi S. MikkonenAbstractTransportation and storage of vegetables and fruits, including berries, is increasing to meet growing consumer demand for fresh foods. Ripening and softening of plant tissues may be slowed down by hexanal, a safe volatile compound that also has antimicrobial properties. Thus hexanal could be applied during the food distribution chain to slow down the spoilage of plant-based products and reduce food waste. Nonetheless, due to the rapid evaporation of hexanal, a constant supply is needed. Our aim was to develop a concept to incorporate food-grade sunflower oil in a polysaccharide aerogel matrix for controlled in situ production and release of hexanal. We compared enzyme- and light-catalyzed lipid oxidation reactions, determined the release of hexanal at different conditions, and performed storage stability tests of blueberries and cherry tomatoes. The lipid-loaded aerogels assessed here are a potential novel delivery matrix for controlled hexanal formation to extend the shelf life of plant-based products.
       
  • The impact of hybrid yeasts on the aroma profile of cool climate Riesling
           wines

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 28 November 2019Source: Food Chemistry: XAuthor(s): Jean-Philippe Kanter, Santiago Benito, Silvia Brezina, Beata bei-sert, Stefanie Fritsch, Claus-Dieter Patz, Doris RauhutAbstractThe current study highlights the effects of intra- and interspecific hybrid yeasts of the genus Saccharomyces (S.) on the alcoholic fermentation and formation of aroma compounds in cool climate Riesling wines. Three different hybrid yeasts: S. cerevisiae x S. paradoxus (SC x SP), S. cerevisiae x S. kudriavzevii (SC x SK) and S. cerevisiae var. cerevisiae x S. cerevisiae var. bayanus (SC x SB) were investigated. The species S. cerevisiae var. bayanus (SB) was chosen as control variant. It has been demonstrated that the hybrid yeasts have the ability to preserve positive properties while, suppressing undesired properties from the parental yeast species. The hybrid SC x SK showed an increase of desired acetate esters and monoterpenes. The concentrations of higher alcohols were higher in wines fermented by SC x SP, compared to the other variants. SC x SP fermentations resulted in decreased concentrations of L-malate and sulphites.
       
  • Photo-stability of lutein in surfactant-free lutein-zein composite
           colloidal particles

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 27 November 2019Source: Food Chemistry: XAuthor(s): Frankjen Ynske De Boer, Arnout Imhof, Krassimir Petkov VelikovAbstractThe ability of nanoparticles from the plant protein zein to protect lutein from light degradation was studied under various conditions. Lutein-zein nanoparticles were synthesized, after zein purification, by anti-solvent precipitation. Particle sizes, ranging from 25 to 75 nm, measured by dynamic light scattering, were tuned by varying zein concentrations in the solvent phase (before anti-solvent precipitation), which was linked to the encapsulation efficiency. However, changes in particle sizes did not result in significant changes in photo-stability. Zein-lutein nanoparticles showed increased photo-stability of lutein when compared to lutein dispersions in water. To further promote the lutein stability, ascorbic acid was used as an antioxidant in the aqueous dispersion. The addition of ascorbic acid to lutein-zein particles resulted in dispersions with similar properties. However, the photo-stability of lutein in dispersions stabilized with ascorbic acid improved significantly compared to samples without ascorbic acid or to pure lutein dispersions (about 25% increased relative stability).
       
  • Non-Saccharomyces Yeast and Lactic Acid Bacteria in Co-Inoculated
           Fermentations with Two Saccharomyces cerevisiae Yeast Strains: a Strategy
           to Improve the Phenolic Content of Syrah Wine

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 11 October 2019Source: Food Chemistry: XAuthor(s): P.P. Minnaar, H.W. du Plessis, N.P. Jolly, M. van der Rijst, M. du ToitAbstractSyrah must was co-inoculated with mixed cultures of Saccharomyces+O. oeni/Lb. plantarum and Saccharomyces+non-Saccharomyces+O. oeni/Lb. plantarum to evaluate the effect on phenolics and sensory attributes. Reference wines were produced by S. cerevisiae. Malvidin-3-O-glucoside, flavan-3-ols, flavonols and phenolic acids were quantified using a RP-HPLC technique. Physicochemical characteristics and sensory attributes were measured. Total acidity and alcohol in mixed co-inoculations were different from reference wines. The concentration of L-malic acid was 7-times less in mixed co-inoculations. Mixed co-inoculations had ca. 1.3-times more malvidin-3-O-glucoside and phenolic acids than reference wines. Flavan-3-ols and flavonols were not different between mixed co-inoculations and reference wines. Acidity and astringency were least in mixed co-inoculations. Mouthfeel and bitterness least in S. cerevisiae wines. Tasters preferred mixed co-inoculated wines. Mixed co-inoculation is a strategy to contemplate for Syrah vinification but the modalities of inoculation need further investigation. Success depends on a suitable combination of yeast/bacteria and consideration of strain variation.
       
  • Monitoring of selective androgen receptor modulators in bovine muscle
           tissue by ultra-high performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass
           spectrometry

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 24 September 2019Source: Food Chemistry: XAuthor(s): Anna Gadaj, Emiliano Ventura, Alexis Ripoche, Mark H. MooneyAbstractSelective androgen receptor modulators (SARMs) are non-steroidal compounds widely reported as drugs of abuse in human and animal sports, with potential for misuse as growth promoters in animal-based food production. In this study, a first analytical methodology to simultaneous screen for a panel of emerging SARMs in bovine muscle was developed, validated (CCβ values from 0.5 - 5 ng g-1), and applied to detect 15 structurally diverse compounds from nine SARM families. Muscle samples (200 mg) were homogenized in extraction solvent (MeCN:H2O, 4:1, v/v) before clean-up (end-capped C18 dSPE), defatting (n-hexane pre-saturated with MeCN partitioning) and concentration prior to UHPLC-MS/MS analysis. In the absence of incurred bovine muscle, method applicability was demonstrated by the analysis of rodent muscle tissue. The developed screening assay serves as a rapid, simple and cost-effective tool for surveillance monitoring of SARM abuse in livestock production systems as a pre-emptive measure ensuring food safety.
       
  • High Throughput Nutritional Profiling of Pea Seeds using Fourier Transform
           Mid-Infrared Spectroscopy

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 18 September 2019Source: Food Chemistry: XAuthor(s): Chithra Karunakaran, Perumal Vijayan, Jarvis Stobbs, Ramandeep Kaur Bamrah, Gene Arganosa, Thomas D. WarkentinAbstractSeed samples from 117 genetically diverse pea breeding lines were used to determine the robustness of Fourier transform mid-infrared spectroscopy (FT-MIR) for the rapid nutritional profiling of seeds. The FT-MIR results were compared to wet chemistry methods for assessing the concentrations of total protein, starch, fiber, phytic acid, and carotenoids in pea seed samples. Of the five partial least square regression models (PLSR) developed, protein, fiber and phytic acid concentrations predicted by the models exhibited correlation coefficients greater than 0.83 when compared with data obtained using the wet chemistry methods for both the calibration and validation sets. The starch PLSR model had a correlation greater than 0.75, and carotenoids had correlation of 0.71 for the validation sets. The methods implemented in this research show the novelty and usefulness of FT-MIR as a simple, fast, and cost-effective technique to determine multiple seed constituents simultaneously.
       
  • In vitro and in vivo antioxidant properties of bioactive compounds from
           Green Propolis obtained by ultrasound-assisted extraction

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 17 September 2019Source: Food Chemistry: XAuthor(s): Renata Iara Cavalaro, Richtier Gonçalves da Cruz, Sebastien Dupont, Juliana Maria Leite Nóbrega De Moura Bell, Thais Maria Ferreira de Souza VieiraAbstractGreen propolis presents a potential source of bioactive compounds, responsible for its antioxidant capacity. The effects of ethanol concentration, solid-solvent ratio, and extraction time were evaluated in regard to the total phenolic content (TPC) and antioxidant capacity of the extracts by the use of central composite rotatable designs. Optimum extraction conditions lead to significant reduction of extraction time compared to conventional extraction methods. Under optimum conditions, extracts were composed of 1614.80 mg GAE. g-1 and 807 mg artepillin C. g-1. Extracts were effective in retarding the oxidation in oil-in-water emulsions subjected to accelerated tests. Green propolis extracts (up to 200 mg.kg-1) did not increase Saccharomyces cerevisiae cell damage after 4 hours of exposure, indicating its antioxidant effect and potential innocuity. Results demonstrated the antioxidant properties of the propolis extract was similar or better than the ones from synthetic antioxidants and warrant further investigation to determine its potential industrial application.
       
  • Inhibition of apricot polyphenol oxidase by combinations of plant
           proteases and ascorbic acid

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 11 September 2019Source: Food Chemistry: XAuthor(s): Ala eddine Derardja, Matthias Pretzler, Ioannis Kampatsikas, Malika Barkat, Annette RompelAbstractThe present research investigates the long term inhibition of enzymatic browning by inactivating the polyphenol oxidase (PPO) of apricot, using combinations of plant proteases and ascorbic acid (AA). The selected proteases were able to inactivate PPO at pH 4.5, with the degree of inactivation proportional to incubation time and protease concentration. Papain was the most effective protease, with 50 μg completely inactivating PPO in less than one hour. AA prevented browning reactions that occur before or during PPO inactivation by protease. The combinations of AA/proteases were highly effective in vitro, where 2 mM AA/500 μg proteases inhibited PPO activity completely over 24 hours. The combination of AA/proteases was also effective in vivo, as treated apricot purees preserved their color (p< 0.0001, compared to untreated samples after 10 days of storage). The results demonstrate that AA/proteases combinations constitute a promising practical anti-browning method with feasible application in the food industry.
