    Physicochemical, functional, and nutritional characteristics of stabilized rice bran form tarom cultivar

    Ali Rafe, Alireza Sadeghian and Seyedeh Zohreh Hoseini-Yazdi

    Version of Record online: 11 JUL 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.407

    Indeed, many works have been accomplished on the stabilization of rice bran and the effect of extrusion on some functional properties of food has been studied, but there is still lack of knowledge concerning the evaluation of stabilized rice bran and surveying of its functional and nutritional properties. Therefore, the main aim of the current work is to compare the functional, nutritional and biophysical characteristics of rice bran before and after stabilization. Certainly, these evaluations can be vital to utilize rice bran as a food ingredient for the human diet. From a commercial perspective, when there is a growing market for rice bran with added value and more scientific information available about its benefits, industries are expected to show more interest in processing the product for human consumption besides its current use as animal feed.

    Migration of nonylphenol and plasticizers from polyvinyl chloride stretch film into food simulants, rapeseed oil, and foods

    Yoko Kawamura, Yuko Ogawa and Motoh Mutsuga

    Version of Record online: 5 JUL 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.404

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Nonylphenol (NP) more easily migrated from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) stretch film into aqueous foods than diisononyl adipate (DINA) and di-n-alkyl adipate (DAA). The migration ratio of NP, DINA, and DAA into fatty foods, such as minced tuna and pork, came to 15%–37% of their contents in PVC films at 5°C for 24 hr. The estimated daily intakes of NP and DINA for Japanese individuals around the year 2000 were 35 and 1,050 µg, respectively, and should be no safety concern.
