Unofficial 2015 Impact Factor

While Food Science & Nutrition is under evaluation to be included in the Science Citation Index, the editorial office has estimated an unofficial Impact Factor of over 1.000 for the 2015 JCR year.

Food Science & Nutrition included in New Emerging Sources Citation Index

We are pleased to announce that Food Science & Nutrition has been accepted to the new Emerging Sources Citation Index. This is a new resource provided by Thomson Reuters' in Web of Science, which compiles high quality, peer-reviewed publications, and makes important content visible even if it has not yet shown an international citation impact.

All items contained within the index are searchable, discoverable and citable.

    Effects of different ozonized slurry-ice treatments and superchilling storage (−1°C) on microbial spoilage of two important pelagic fish species

    Slurry-iced superchilling storage of current study is contextualized with those of ice-stored/refrigerated storage situations previously reported. We do this by schematic illustration of estimated proliferation increment(s)/trend(s) of some (relevant/specific) bacterial species detected in (some) small pelagic fishery products as affected by different storage temperatures and times (days). Trends A–E shows the different proliferation patterns of bacterial species such as Enterobacteriaceae, Lactobacillus, Pseudomonas spp., Shewanella as it proliferates at different rates under varying cold storage temperature conditions.

    Viscoelastic properties of sweet potato complementary porridges as influenced by endogenous amylases

    Agnes Nabubuya, Agnes Namutebi, Yusuf Byaruhanga, Reidar B. Schuller, Judith Narvhus and Trude Wicklund

    The study evaluated the effect of sweetpotato varieties, postharvest handling conditions and slurry solids content on the viscoelastic properties of sweetpotato weaning porridges. Activation of amylases at 75⁰C caused changes in the viscoelastic parameters; phase angle (δ) and complex viscosity (η*). Increase in slurry solids content caused reduction in the phase angle values and increase in the viscosity of the sweetpotato porridges. The viscosity of the porridges decreased with storage of sweetpotato roots.

    Monosodium glutamate as a tool to reduce sodium in foodstuffs: Technological and safety aspects

    Hellen D. B. Maluly, Adriana P. Arisseto-Bragotto and Felix G. R. Reyes

    Version of Record online: 13 JUL 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.499

    Monosodium glutamate monohydrate (MSG·H2O) is the world's most widely used flavor enhancer. It has been considered one of the options among food additives since it promotes the umami taste. Some studies were reviewed to corroborate the information regarding the contribution of MSG·H2O in reducing sodium in foodstuffs and to improve the sensorial quality and acceptance of products with reduced sodium.
