    In this research, the effect of sucrose replacement by stevioside-maltodextrin mixture on physiochemical properties of Nanbrenji (Iranian traditional cookie) was evaluated in four replacing levels including 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100%. This is significant because, nowadays consumption of sugar has increased rapidly; leading to an epidemic of obesity and other illnesses. As a whole, need to significantly reduce sugar intake to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Sugar substitutes can be a good option for sweetening foods with less calories.

    Exploring the flavor life cycle of beers with varying alcohol content

    Benjamin Missbach, Dorota Majchrzak, Raphael Sulzner, Brian Wansink, Martin Reichel and Juergen Koenig

    Version of Record online: 20 APR 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.472

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    This study analyzes the temporal flavor dominance of beer of varying alcohol content during consumption. The results show that in alcohol-free beers, worty-off flavor was most pronounced in dominating between 5 and 30 s and malty flavor increased after swallowing. The higher the alcohol content, the higher the flavor dominance, especially prior to swallowing. We offer some advice, based on these findings, to minimize unfavorable flavor experience during the consumption of beer with lower alcohol.

    Antibacterial electrospun chitosan-based nanofibers: A bacterial membrane perforator

    Mounia Arkoun, France Daigle, Marie-Claude Heuzey and Abdellah Ajji

    Version of Record online: 10 APR 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.468

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    This study investigates the antibacterial mechanism of action of chitosan nanofibers (CNFs). The results suggest a plausible mode of action and provide evidence in favor of CNFs as a bacterial membrane disruptor and perforator. The antibacterial CNFs can find promising applications as bioactive food packaging materials that can extend shelf life of food products along with inhibiting the spread of alteration flora and foodborne pathogens.
