  • Effect of Plasma Activated Water (PAW) on Fruits and Vegetables

    • Authors: Harsh P. Sharma; Arpit H Patel, Mahendra Pal
      Pages: 60 - 68
      Abstract: In recent time, the consumption of fruits and vegetables has raised, the variety of pathogens of fresh fruits and vegetables has enhanced, and it's believed that pathogens are capable to resisting the stress conditions that are major causes of fresh produce related food-borne ill health. In order to ensure microbial safety and reduce nutrient loss, non-thermal plasma technology has received increasing attention in food preservation applications. Non-thermal plasma has high reactivity and has potential applications in food safety, nutritional quality and environmental safety. Plasma activated water (PAW) abundant source of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and reactive nitrogen species, which can inactive the microorganisms. In addition to its bactericidal activity, it can also be used to degrade pesticide residues and antibiotic residues in water and packaging materials. Non-thermal plasma is applied to water to generate plasma-activated water, potentially applied in fruits and vegetables in recent years. PAW has been successfully applied as washing agent or disinfect agent in fruits and vegetables. In addition, it can inactivate food-borne pathogens on fruit and vegetable contact surfaces and on fruits and vegetables without adverse effect on the environment and human health. Reported findings indicates that plasma activated water has the least affect the sensory parameters and quality of fruits and vegetables. Therefore, it can be potentially applied in fruits and vegetables industry as substitute of traditional washing agent i.e. chlorinated water, quaternary ammonium salts etc. Furthermore, High bactericidal ability and easy to produce plasma activated water function can be used in every food field, such as meat, dairy products, fruits and vegetables and grains. However, the chemistry of PAW is taken into account to be extraordinarily complicated, and controlling the reaction is one in all the challenges for future analysis. Furthermore, it also requires from regulatory agencies to generally recognize as a safe (GRAS) status.

  • Determination of the Flavoring Components in Vitex doniana Fruit Following
           Hydrodistillation Extraction

    • Authors: Imoisi Chinyere; Iyasele U. Julius, Okhale E. Samuel
      Pages: 69 - 75
      Abstract: In traditional medicine and aromatherapy, use of essential oils and their flavor compounds have been known for the management of various human diseases. The flavor structures of black plum (Vitex doniana) sweet fruit are unavailable though widely eaten by natives. Therefore, this research is aimed at using spectroscopic techniques to identify the chemical structure of the specific flavor in the syrup responsible for its unique aroma and taste. Hydrodistillation (HD) in a Clevenger-type apparatus and GC-MS (HD-GC-MS) were used to extract the essential oil and analyse the volatile compounds (VOCs) respectively from Vitex doniana sweet fruit. 24 different volatile compounds (VOCs) were identified and grouped into eight classes of organic compounds comprising of 6 terpenes, 5 carboxylic acids, 3 ethers, 2 alcohols, 2 ketones, 2 lactones, 2 aldehydes and 2 esters. It is noteworthy that GC-MS following hydrodistillation offers invaluable information about the aroma components of the fruit, because fingerprints of volatile compounds profiles using novel extraction methods are currently highly valued due to its importance to sensory properties of foodstuffs. Therefore, characterization of the aroma compounds as markers in putrefied and fresh fruits and their products are of great importance as a quality control parameter. The sugars were then identified using a combination of 1D 1H NMR and GC-MS. Characterization of the specific sugars in black plum fruit was done using GC-MS spectroscopic techniques via derivatization. This method converts the sugars in the sample to the respective trimethylsilyl-derivatives of the sugars, which are thermally stable, volatile and amenable for GC-MS analysis. The sugars identified are Alpha.-D-Glucopyranose, Glucopyranose, D-Glucose, d-(+)-Xylose, 2-Deoxy-pentose, Glucofuranoside, beta.-D-Galactopyranoside, D-Fructose, alpha.-DL-Arabinofuranoside, alpha.-DL-Lyxofuranoside, Ribitol, 2-Keto-d-gluconic acid, D-Xylofuranose and alpha.-D-Galactopyranose as obtained from their raw area percentage based on the total ion current. In conclusion, derivatization along with the coupling of GC with MS allows invaluable information about the composition and structure of sugars.

  • New Low Glycemic U.S. Rice, Its Nutritional Profile, Cooking, and Grain

    • Authors: Herry S. Utomo; Ida Wenefrida, Bob Butcher
      Pages: 76 - 81
      Abstract: Rice (Oryza sativa L.) is generally categorized as a high glycemic index (GI) food source. The cornerstone to manage and prevent diabetes heavily relies on dietary and nutrition management. Low glycemic rice can be used in the diets to minimize the spikes in blood sugar and insulin levels crucial in diabetes management and prevention. Low glycemic rice with a GI of 41±9 has been successfully developed for commercial applications in the United States (U.S.) rice industry. It is a non-GMO long grain rice with cereal chemistry, cooking, and grain characteristics of typical U.S. long grain rice. The low glycemic rice has an amylose (%), calorie (per 100 g white rice), and carbohydrates content (%) of 21.8 ± 1.1, 360 ± 3.2, 79 ± 2.1, respectively, and mills well with a % milling yield of 63 ± 2.1. Its nutritional profile is like that of typical long-grain rice with a total fat (%) of 0.8 ± 0.3, and a total dietary fiber (%) of 0.44 ± 0.12, having a higher protein content (10.5%) than rice in general (6-7%). It has a cooking and physical grain appearance of typical U.S. long grain rice. The overall grain quality specifications of the low glycemic rice are very similar to the grain quality standards recognized by the U.S. long-grain rice consumers and this will help in marketing and may assist rapid adoption of low glycemic rice into the diets of rice consumers who need it.

  • Blood Biochemical Parameters Exploration in Broilers and Local Chickens in
           Korhogo, Côte d’Ivoire

    • Authors: Baudouin Angoua KOKORE; Nahounou Mathieu BLEYERE, Soualio KAMAGATE, Paul Angoué YAPO
      Pages: 82 - 86
      Abstract: Serum biochemical profile provides valuable information about health and immune status of animals. These biochemical parameters values are influenced by species, age, sex, season, geographic region, nutrition and physiological conditions. The aim of the work is to explore the blood biochemical parameters of broilers and local chickens for consumption in the city of Korhogo. To do this, a venous blood sample was taken from 64 chickens, including 32 local chickens and 32 broiler seemingly healthy chickens for the biochemical tests. The mean values of glucose and phosphorus are within the international reference ranges. In contrast, total protein was higher and uric acid and calcium were below these ranges for both groups of chickens. ASAT (Aspartate aminotransferase) levels were significantly higher in females of local chickens than in males. In contrast, uric acid and phosphorus levels were higher in males than in females in both groups of chicken. Hypocalcemia was observed in all local chickens. Some parameters are within the reference ranges and others are not. They are generally higher in broilers than in local chickens.

  • Assessment of Anthropometric Indices and Micronutrient Status of Children
           under Five in Orphanages of Kaduna Metropolis

    • Authors: Umar A.T; Anigo K.M, Nwajagu I.U, Okoye N.G, Kahu J.C, Hassan S.M
      Pages: 87 - 95
      Abstract: Children who are orphaned are faced with an increasing risk of malnutrition, which is attributed from poor feeding practices, inadequate food supply, utilization coupled with limited access to treatment facilities. In this study, the Anthropometric indices and Micronutrient status of children under five in orphanages of Kaduna metropolis, was assessed. Some standard methods were used for the sampling, anthropometric measurements and micronutrient analysis. Results revealed that the demographic characteristics of the orphan children were mostly aged between 13 to 24 months (37.93%) with the female (52.87%) and the male (47.13%). Anthropometric measurements of the children in the orphanages revealed mean z scores for Weight for Height (WHZ/Acute Malnutrition) as -1.74±1.84, -2.59±1.65 for Weight for Age (WAZ/Underweight) and -2.32±2.23 for Height for Age (HAZ/Stunting). Prevalence of Severe Acute Malnutrition among the orphans was (36%), Severe Underweight (36.1%) and severely stunted (44.8%). Micronutrient status of the under five orphan children indicate mean concentrations of Vitamin A (26.88ug/l ± 66.54), Iron (21.78ug/l ± 12.85) and Zinc (62.65 ± 29.25 ug/dl). The orphans’ micronutrient status and anthropometric indices showed significant association between the Iron and Vitamin A concentrations, WHZ and WAZ (r = 0.681) and between WAZ and HAZ (r = 0.467). The outcome of this research will contribute to improving the nutritional status and address micronutrient deficiencies among orphans in orphanages of Kaduna Metropolis.
