      Sensory characteristics of high-amylose maize-resistant starch in three food products (pages 117–124)

      Mindy Maziarz, Melanie Sherrard, Shanil Juma, Chandan Prasad, Victorine Imrhan and Parakat Vijayagopal

      Article first published online: 20 DEC 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.15

      This study shows that high-amylose maize (HMA-RS2) can completely or partially replace all-purpose (AP) flour in food prepared commercially or in the home without significantly altering most sensory characteristics. The functional ingredient HAM-RS2 can be used to increase dietary fiber content of certain foods with minimal impact of product acceptability.

      Mass modeling of fig (Ficus carica L.) fruit with some physical characteristics (pages 125–129)

      Feizollah Shahbazi and Satar Rahmati

      Article first published online: 25 DEC 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.20

      According to the results obtained in this study, the Quadratic model could predict the relationships among the mass and some physical properties of fig fruit with proper value for determination coefficient. So we suggest the Quadratic model for prediction the mass of fig fruit based on first projected area (PA1) to design and development of grading systems, from economical standpoint of view.

      Shelf life of air and modified atmosphere-packaged fresh tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) fillets stored under chilled and superchilled conditions (pages 130–140)

      Odoli Cyprian, Hélène L. Lauzon, Ragnar Jóhannsson, Kolbrún Sveinsdóttir, Sigurjón Arason and Emilía Martinsdóttir

      Article first published online: 26 DEC 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.18

      The rapidly developing retail market of tilapia fillets and demand for fresh products emphasize the need for prolonged shelf life of fresh fillets. In this study, different storage conditions for fresh fillets are assessed to establish optimal storage conditions. The study shows that air packaged in a high-barrier film bag combined with low-temperature storage maintains superior fillet quality longer and prolonged the shelf life of fillets stored at −1°C by 5–7 days as compared with storage at +1°C.

      Noni juice reduces lipid peroxidation–derived DNA adducts in heavy smokers (pages 141–149)

      Mian-Ying Wang, Lin Peng, Claude J. Jensen, Shixin Deng and Brett J. West

      Article first published online: 7 JAN 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.21

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial revealed that noni juice may reduce lipid peroxidation–derived DNA adducts in the lymphocytes of heavy smokers. This effect is associated with antioxidant activity of noni juice and the presence of iridoids, the major phytochemical constituents of noni fruit.

      Estimating bulk density of compacted grains in storage bins and modifications of Janssen's load equations as affected by bulk density (pages 150–156)

      Ekramul Haque

      Article first published online: 7 JAN 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.23

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A mathematical model relating the bulk density of a granular material in storage bins with the packed bed depth has been developed. This model was incorporated in the widely accepted Janssen's load equations to show that increase of the bulk density caused increase in the Janssen's load equations. Modifications of Janssen's load equations were suggested.

      Emulsion stabilizing capacity of intact starch granules modified by heat treatment or octenyl succinic anhydride (pages 157–171)

      Anna Timgren, Marilyn Rayner, Petr Dejmek, Diana Marku and Malin Sjöö

      Article first published online: 7 FEB 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.17

      Intact starch granules are an interesting stabilizer candidate for food grade Pickering emulsions. The stabilizing capacity of seven different intact starch granules for making oil-in-water emulsions has been the topic of this screening study. Among all types of starch studied quinoa had the predominantly best emulsifying properties and surprising long term stability over 2 years of storage.

      The synergistic effect of ribose, carnosine, and ascorbic acid on the sensory and physico-chemical characteristics of minced bison meat (pages 172–183)

      Michel Aliani, Donna Ryland, Jennifer Williamson and Natalie Rempel

      Article first published online: 14 FEB 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.25

      The synergistic effect of ribose, carnosine, and ascorbic acid may positively affect the aroma and color of minced bison meat leading to higher overall acceptability without compromising sensory and physico-chemical quality.

      Biological and functional properties of proteolytic enzyme-modified egg protein by-products (pages 184–195)

      Marta Pokora, Ewelina Eckert, Aleksandra Zambrowicz, Łukasz Bobak, Marek Szołtysik, Anna Dąbrowska, Józefa Chrzanowska, Antoni Polanowski and Tadeusz Trziszka

      Article first published online: 14 FEB 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.27

      Enzymatic hydrolysis significantly improved functional properties and biological activity of protein by-products. Improved functional properties and high levels of antioxidant and antihypertensive activity were obtained for egg-protein hydrolysates. This study indicated that egg-protein by-products hydrolysates could be used in foods as natural antioxidants and functionality enhancers.

      Polyphenols are responsible for the proapoptotic properties of pomegranate juice on leukemia cell lines (pages 196–208)

      Haytham Dahlawi, Nicola Jordan-Mahy, Malcolm Clench, Gordon J. McDougall and Christine Lyn Le Maitre

      Article first published online: 20 FEB 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.26

      Pomegranates have shown great promise as anti-cancer agents in a number of cancers including clinical trials in prostate cancer. Here we demonstrate the agents responsible for induction of apoptosis and cell cycle arrest in leukaemia cell lines are contained within the polyphenol rich fractions from pomegranate. The increased concentrations of ellagatanins and hydrocyanimic acids within these fractions were identified as the potential bioactive agents.
