    Evaluation of the proximate composition, antioxidant potential, and antimicrobial activity of mango seed kernel extracts

    Jane K. Mutua, Samuel Imathiu and Willis Owino

    Version of Record online: 25 JUN 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.399

    Mango seed kernels can be ideal raw materials for obtaining extracts rich in bioactive compounds with good antioxidant properties. In order to determine their potential use, this study evaluated some of the biochemical characteristics and antimicrobial potential of mango seed kernel extracts on medically important human bacterial and fungal pathogens. This study demonstrates that mango seed powder is an abundant and cost-effective potential natural antibiotic and antifungal that can be utilized in addressing the challenge of food poisoning and infections caused by pathogenic microorganisms in the food industry.

    Effects of maturity stage and lactic acid bacteria on the fermentation quality and aerobic stability of Siberian wildrye silage

    Ping Li, Shiqie Bai, Minghong You and Yixin Shen

    Version of Record online: 21 JUN 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.312

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    The number of indigenous LAB on ensiling materials was less than that of yeasts and molds, and LAB species showed specification adapted to low temperature. LAB inoculated silages had lower (P < 0.05) pH value, NH3-N/TN and butyric acid content compared with control silage. Silage treated with LB had higher concentrations of acetic acid, propionic acid, WSC, and CP. However, the aerobic stability of silages inoculated with LAB did not differed significantly between stages (P > 0.05). When fermentation characteristics, chemical composition, and aerobic stability were considered, treatment with L. plantarum resulted in high quality of Siberian wildrye silage harvested at the flowering stage in the alpine region.

    Acceptability and solubility of iron and zinc contents of modified Moringa oleifera sauces consumed in the Far-north region of Cameroon

    Saliou Mawouma, Roger Ponka and Carl Moses Mbofung

    Version of Record online: 21 JUN 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.398

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    The effect of acidulant and Moringa leaf powder on acceptability and iron and zinc solubility of a standard Moringa sauce were assessed. The Lime juice-acidulated sauce was the most acceptable formulation. Our study confirm the beneficial effect of lime juice in improving iron and zinc bioavailability.
