The influence of blanching on the phenolics composition, antioxidant activity, and inhibitory ability of methanol extract of A. digitata leaves on the activities of some key enzymes implicated in the pathology and complications of type 2 diabetes (T2D) was evaluated in vitro. The raw leaves had appreciable levels of health-benefiting flavonoids and phenolic acids, displayed antioxidant activity and inhibited some key enzymes implicated in the pathology and complications of T2D. However, blanching decreased these functionalities of the leaves.

Wasiu A. Olaniyi, Olukayode A. Makinde and Ofelia G. Omitogun
Version of Record online: 25 MAY 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.391
The study determined the preference of Clariid catfish species of Clarias gariepinus, Heterobranchus bidorsalis, and their hybrids based on sensory – cognitive and qualitative parameters, and nutritional quality – proximate composition. In addition to the general cognitive features, the study employed the recent characteristic taste ‘umami’ in its assessment, and concluded that the catfish products are good sources of high protein, fat, and minerals that are indispensable in human diets; and also the parent catfish species possess better sensory qualities than hybrids, but all species need exogenous enhancement to their natural sensory components.

Version of Record online: 25 MAY 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.389
Effects of pussy willow extract (PWE) and PW essential oil (PWEO) on oxidative products like peroxide value (PV) and carbonyl value (CV) of sunflower oil during ambient storage were evaluated.

The aim of this study was to verify the activation details and products of human lymphomonocytes, stimulated by different β-glucans, that is Euglena paramylon, MacroGard®, and lipopolysaccharide. Our results indicate that linear fibrous Euglena β-glucan, obtained by sonication and alkaline treatment can act as safe and effective coadjutant of the innate immune system response.
- You have full text access to this OnlineOpen articleThe relationship between agricultural biodiversity, dietary diversity, household food security, and stunting of children in rural Kenya
Florence K. M'Kaibi, Nelia P. Steyn, Sophie A. Ochola and Lissane Du Plessis
Version of Record online: 20 MAY 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.387
Data indicate that households with children with stunted growth and those without are significantly different in dietary diversity score and household food insecurity access scale but not with agricultural biodiversity. This suggests some potential in using dietary diversity score and household food insecurity access scale as proxy measures for stunting.
