The potential of cassava as a biomaterial for different industries depends on its yield and starch content, and consequently starch yield. Also, cassava use for food is constrained by its cyanide content. This study aimed at identifying suitable cultivars and optimum time of harvest to maximize starch production across three environments. Also, cyanogenic potential of cassava landraces as affected by environmental conditions have been established.

Bifidobacterium animalis ssp. lactis GCL2505 can withstand the effects of secondary bile acids, which appear to allow it to proliferate. We evaluated physiological functions such as IgA production and mucin secretion, which may affect gastrointestinal function such as bowel movements in order to counteract constipation and found that it is a useful probiotic.

Karishma Moktan and Pravin Ojha
Article first published online: 20 JAN 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.342
The germination of horse gram resulted in an increase in protein, fiber, total polyphenol content, and antioxidant activity of horse gram flour, whereas antinutritional factor such as tannin, phytate, and oxalate decreased. Bread prepared with incorporation up to 6% gram flour was found to be acceptable by sensory evaluation. Total polyphenol and antioxidant activity along with mineral like calcium and iron content was increased significantly for 6% incorporated bread.
