    Comparative study on proximate, functional, mineral, and antinutrient composition of fermented, defatted, and protein isolate of Parkia biglobosa seed

    Bolajoko I. Ogunyinka, Babatunji E. Oyinloye, Foluso O. Osunsanmi, Abidemi P. Kappo and Andrew R. Opoku

    Article first published online: 29 APR 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.373

    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.

    Effects of cranberry extracts on gene expression in THP-1 cells

    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.

    Development of a nutrient-dense complementary food using amaranth-sorghum grains

    Judith Kanensi Okoth, Sophie Atieno Ochola, Nicholas K. Gikonyo and Anselimo Makokha

    Article first published online: 22 APR 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.367

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    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.
