Different biological preparations of P. biglobosa seeds were comparatively analyzed to ascertain physicochemical properties, hence, nutraceutical potential. The protein isolate exhibited the best nutraceutical potential with a high protein content; low fat, carbohydrate, and antinutrient contents. The results from this study implies that the protein isolate from P. biglobosa seeds can be developed into a nutraceutical toward prevention, treatment, and management of metabolic diseases such as diabetes.

Daniel B. Hannon, Jerry T. Thompson, Christina Khoo, Vijaya Juturu and John P. Vanden Heuvel
Article first published online: 25 APR 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.374
The purpose of the present studies was to determine if cranberry extracts (CEs) contain phytochemicals that exert anti-inflammatory effects. The human monocytic cell line THP-1 was treated with two CEs (CE and 90MX) and subsequently challenged with Lipopolysaccharides (LPS). Based on the changes in gene expression observed, this data indicates that CEs contain bioactive components that have anti-inflammatory effects and may protect cells from oxidative damage.

Judith Kanensi Okoth, Sophie Atieno Ochola, Nicholas K. Gikonyo and Anselimo Makokha
Article first published online: 22 APR 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.367
In developing countries, children in the age group 6–23 months have high rates of under nourishment. This is partly due to the complementary foods which are poor both in quality and quantity compared to the children's high nutrient requirement to support rapid growth and development. Steeping and germinating amaranth and sorghum grains can enhance the nutrient density of complementary foods thereby contributing to food-based efforts to alleviate this challenge.
