  • Green Tea Intake Effect on Lipoprotein, Liver Enzymes, Body Mass Index,
           and Liver Cancer: A Meta-analysis

    • Authors: Mingzhen Li; Yunjie Duan, Ying Wang, Lei Chen, Mohamed EA Abdelrahim, Jun Yan
      Pages: 321 - 328
      Abstract: Introduction: Green tea is related to the reduction of liver enzymes, lipoprotein, and body mass index. However, some reports related green tea to the risk of developing liver cancer, but their outcomes were conflicting. Hence, the present study aimed to determine the relationship between green tea intake and lipoprotein, liver enzymes, body mass index, and liver cancer. Methods: A systematic literature search up to January 2020 was performed and 22 studies included 169599 subjects with 97316 of them use green tea intake. Odds ratio (OR) or mean difference (MD) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) was calculated to evaluate the relationship between green tea intake and lipoprotein, liver enzymes, body mass index, and liver cancer using the dichotomous or the contentious method with a fixed effect or a random effect models. Results: Green tea intake significantly lowered the risk of developing liver cancer, and body mass index compared to no green tea intake. Also, there was a significant lowering effect of green tea intake on liver enzymes, lipoprotein compared to no green tea intake. However, no significant different was found between green tea intake and no green tea intake on high-density lipoprotein. Conclusions: Based on this meta-analysis, green tea intake had a significant lowering effect on the risk of developing liver cancer and had a significantly improving effect on body mass index, liver enzymes, and lipoprotein compared to no green tea intake. These results suggest that green tea may be added to the daily dietary program to improve cardiovascular status with no possible risk of liver cancer. It even may have a protecting effect against liver cancer in the usual daily number of cups.

      Abstract: Unripe banana is rich with resistant starch (RS) and this non-processed food confers many health benefits. However, unripe banana is not consumed directly and when cooked its native RS is rendered digestible. We have developed macaroni from chemically modified unripe banana flour (RS4), which maintains their content of resistant starch after being cooked, with and without the supplementation of turmeric extract. We hypothesized that consuming our banana RS4 macaroni would confer beneficial effects on metabolic profiles. Healthy Wistar rats were fed for 6 weeks with cooked banana RS4 macaroni, with and without the turmeric extract supplementation, and compared to rats fed with standard wheat macaroni. No significant physiological differences between groups were observed except rats that consumed banana RS4 macaroni had significantly smaller stomachs (p

  • Estimating Forage Yield and Nutritive Value of Maize-Legume Intercropping
           Systems in Paddy Fields During Summer

    • Authors: Yowook Song; Md Atikur Rahman, Sang-Hoon Lee, Ji Hye Kim, Ki-Won Lee
      Pages: 342 - 349
      Abstract: The aim of the present study was to evaluate the forage yield and nutritive value of maize–legume intercropping systems in non-cultivating paddy fields. The fields were sprayed with 210 kg ha-1 of nitrogen composite fertilizer [NPK (21-17-17)] before seeding. Maize cv. ‘32P75’ was simultaneously cultivated with two cultivars of soybean (‘Chookdu 1’ and ‘Chookdu 2’) and lablab (cv. ‘Rongai’) from 2018 to 2019 at the National Institute of Animal Science, Cheonan, Republic of Korea. After seeding, pendimethalin herbicide was sprayed on the fields, and soil and plant parameters, including soil chemical composition, plant characteristics, productivity, and feed values, were estimated. The soil in the intercropping treatments had higher nitrogen content and P2O5 utilization rate than the maize monoculture. The productivity [dry matter yield (DMY) and total digestible nutrients] of the fields under the intercropping and monoculture treatments during 2018 were not significantly different. However, the field productivity of the intercropping treatments during 2019 were remarkably higher than that of the maize monoculture; the productivity of M × S1 field was the highest (p < 0.05) among all the treatments, with 9.5% of the total DMY resulting from the intercropped soybean cultivar. Moreover, the feed value of intercropped legumes was higher than the monocrop maize stalks; the crude protein yields of M × S1 and M × S2 fields were significantly higher than that of the maize monocrop during 2019 (p < 0.05). In addition, the feed value, except crude protein content, of the treatment with intercropped lablab was higher than that with the maize monocrop. Thus, these findings provide an insight into the role of alternative cropping in improving the forage yield of paddy fields.

  • Evaluation of Growth Characteristics, Productivity, and Feed Value of
           Different 26 Alfalfa Cultivars in Central Region of South Korea

    • Authors: Yowook Song; Sang-Hoon Lee, Md Atikur Rahman, Hyung Soo Park, Jae Hoon Woo, Bo Ram Choi, Eun A Lim, Ki-Won Lee
      Pages: 350 - 356
      Abstract: This study was conducted in Cheonan of central region in South Korea to identify alfalfa cultivars with superior adaptability to the local environment. To evaluate the growth characteristics, productivity, and feed value of 26 alfalfa cultivars, field experiments were conducted with a randomized block design (three replicates) for three years. Among the 26 alfalfa cultivars, “Natsuwakaba” showed the highest dry matter yield (DMY, 37,083 kg/ha), with a significantly higher three-year average than that of other cultivars. Furthermore, the three-year-average DMYs of “Alfalfa short” (31,044 kg/ha) and “Radar II Brand” (31,163 kg/ha) were significantly higher than those of other cultivars. In addition, differences among the feed values of the alfalfa cultivars were relatively less significant than the differences among their productivity, as the feed value was less influenced by the cultivation conditions and cultivars. Although “Jin Huang Hou” and “Certified organic” exhibited the highest feed values when cultivated in central region in South Korea, “Natsuwakaba” outperformed all cultivars in both productivity and feed value. The acid and neutral detergent fiber (ADF and NDF, respectively) contents of “Jin Huang Hou” (38.9% and 47.26%, respectively) were significantly lower than those of other cultivars. In contrast, the ADF and NDF contents of “Burgaltai” (46.52% and 55.56%, respectively) implied poor feed value upon cultivation in South Korea. The crude protein (CP) content in the alfalfa cultivars ranged from 14.95% to 19.44% during early flowering, and the highest CP content was observed for “Certified organic.” The in-vitro digestibility of alfalfa was approximately 70% for all cultivars during early flowering, indicating good digestibility of most of the cultivars.

  • Effects of Melissa officinalis L. (Lemon Balm) Extract Supplementation on
           Cardiovascular Risk Factors: A Pooled Analysis of Randomized Controlled

    • Authors: Dan Liao; Yanyan Liu, Zhiwei Ouyang, Polin Feng, Cuifen Li
      Pages: 357 - 362
      Abstract: Several clinical trials have investigated the effects of Melissa officinalis (lemon balm) on cardiovascular risk factors, but have yielded conflicting results and had only modest sample sizes. The aim of this pool analysis was to summarize the evidence of the effects of Melissa officinalis supplementation on plasma lipid profiles, body weight, blood pressure and glucose levels. Original randomized controlled trials (RCTs) that assessed the clinical effects of Melissa officinalis consumption in human participants and published before June 2020 were identified by searching online databases, including PubMed, Scopus, Web of Science and Google Scholar databases. The quality of trials was assessed using the Cochrane Risk of Bias Tool. Quantitative data analysis was performed using weighed mean difference (WMD) and 95% confidence interval (CI) as summary statistics. Standard methods for assessing statistical heterogeneity and publication bias were used, respectively. Four trials with 244 participants were included in the final analysis. Pooling of results showed that Melissa officinalis significantly lowered total cholesterol (TC) (WMD, -7.55 mg/dL; 95% CI -14.99, -0.12; P=0.045), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) (WMD, -11.33 mg/dL; 95% CI -19.46, -3.21; P=0.006), glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) (WMD, -0.35 %; 95% CI -0.64, -0.07; P=0.01), and Systolic blood pressure (SBP) (WMD, -0.89 mmHg; 95% CI-1.69, -0.09; P=0.03). The use of Melissa officinalis did not appear to significantly alter any other study endpoints. The present findings showed that supplementation with Melissa officinalis extract were associated with a significant reduction in TC, LDL-C, HbA1c, and SBP in humans.

  • Effects of Reduced Crude Protein Level in Total Mixed Ration on the Growth
           Performance and Carcass Characteristics of Hanwoo Steers

    • Authors: Chae Hwa Ryu; Byeonghyeon Kim, Hyunjung Jung, Seoul Lee, Youl Chang Baek
      Pages: 363 - 366
      Abstract: This study aimed to determine the effect of regulating crude protein (CP) levels in total mixed ration (TMR) on the growth performance and carcass characteristics of Hanwoo steers. The regimens were divided into a control group (TMR with 15% CP) and treatment group (TMR with 12.5% CP). The viable cell count and fermentation potential of the prepared experimental feed and the nutrient digestibility were evaluated. Growth performance and carcass characteristics were confirmed by evaluating the weight and intake of Hanwoo steers, and an economic analysis was performed. Only CP digestibility was higher in the control group than in the treatment group (p0.05). There were no significant differences in carcass weight, yield index, back fat thickness, and loin area (p>0.05), but the appearance rate of quality grade A was higher in the treatment group than in the control group. In addition, there was no difference in the meat quality characteristics, such as marbling, meat color, fat color, texture, and maturity (p>0.05), and the treatment group had a higher rate of 1++ grade than the control group. Economic analysis showed that when 10 cattle were shipped, the control group received a price of 100,041 thousand won, and the treatment group received a price of 102,033 thousand won. When the income for each group was calculated, the production cost of the treatment group was 8% lower than that of the control group; thus, a higher net profit could be expected considering the low feed cost. Therefore, the economic feasibility of steer raising could be improved while maintaining productivity by controlling CP levels in feed. In addition, this study provides useful basic data for precisely adjusting the CP levels in feed for Hanwoo steers.

  • Perspectives on Modes of Eating and Its Impact on Health in a
           Methodological Comparison

    • Authors: Bruna Menegassi; Camila Carla Souza do Prado, Mikelly Cristina do Amaral Alves, Virtude Lifante Carvalho dos Santos
      Pages: 367 - 374
      Abstract: This study analysed the meaning of what the act of eating is, and which modes of eating are seen as positive or negative for health, among a sample of Brazilian adults. The data were collected using an online questionnaire (OQ) (n = 25) and face-to-face interview (FI) (n = 10) and compared. The data were analysed using the exploratory content analysis. The results obtained from the analysis of the participant responses through OQ and FI were comparable. For the participants, the act of eating was, primarily, a basic need; the most evident positive and negative modes of eating were eating healthily and eating unhealthily, respectively. The findings suggest that the sample population responses to the act of eating and modes of eating may be in line with the Dietary Guidelines for the Brazilian Population. Our results are relevant to the international community since several countries are updating their food guidelines based on the Brazilian guideline.

    • Authors: Orawan Oupathumpanont; Sopida Wisansakkul
      Pages: 375 - 381
      Abstract: This research aimed to development modify glutinous rice powder by a pregelatinization method in a drum dryer to improve the physical quality of cooked high amylose rice (Sao Hai rice). Appropriate conditions in the pregelatinization method were studied, 2 factors in the study were gelatinization temperature modified at 3 levels of 120, 130, and 140°C, and the drum dryer speed modified at 2 levels of 1 and 2 rpm. Factorial in Completely Randomized Design (CRD) was used to design the experiment. The modified glutinous rice powder was subjected to physical, chemical, and microbial quality analysis. Next, appropriate conditions were studied for cooking using modified glutinous rice powder. Two factors in the study were the amount of modified glutinous rice powder, at 2 levels of 10% and 15%, and the time spent soaking the rice, at 2 levels of 20 and 30 minutes. The experiment was designed using factorial in CRD. Consumer acceptance of the modified glutinous rice powder was tested among 100 people. The experimental results revealed that the appropriate condition for modifying glutinous rice powder using the pregelatinization method was a gelatinization temperature of 130°C and a drum dryer speed of 2 rpm. In terms of physical quality, the water activity (aw) of the obtained modified glutinous rice powder was 0.26. With regard to chemical quality, amylose and amylopectin contents were 5.81% and 94.1%, respectively. In terms of microbial quality, the total plate count, yeast and mold met standards of dried food. The appropriate condition for using the modified glutinous rice powder to cook Sao Hai rice required 15% of modified glutinous rice powder with 30 minutes of soaking the rice. The overall consumer acceptance score was very high.

      Pages: 382 - 388
      Abstract: Lemon juice contains many bioactive compounds that have potential health benefits. In this study, two different lactic acid bacteria (LAB) strains were used as starter cultures, change in pH, viable cell count during fermentation and antimicrobial, immune boosting, anti-allergy properties were monitored. LAB strains were able to grow in the juice and their viable cell reached to 8.0 log CFU/mL after 72 h at 30°C. Fermentation of lemon juice with LAB had a 2+ inhibitory ability against Vibrio parahaemolyticus and 3+ inhibitory ability against uropathogenic Escherichia coli. The inhibitory action of lactic acid fermentation against the pathogens may be due to the accumulation of main primary metabolites and pH changed during the fermentation. In the adhesion assay, PL LP10069 and TL PM229 exhibited stronger adherence to the Caco-2 cell line. With the anti-allergy test, the expression of anti-allergy cytokine of lemon juice fermentation in PBMC cell lines. The result indicated the significant enhanced to IL-12 by 1% NE PM229. The conclusion showed that fermentation of Lemon juice by probiotic bacteria not only increase antibacterial and anti-allergy effects but also enhance health benefit.
