    Antibacterial activity of jalapeño pepper (Capsicum annuum var. annuum) extract fractions against select foodborne pathogens

    Karleigh Bacon, Renee Boyer, Cynthia Denbow, Sean O'Keefe, Andrew Neilson and Robert Williams

    Version of Record online: 13 FEB 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.453

    In this study, fractions were collected from jalapeño pepper extracts using reverse-phase HPLC and tested for antibacterial activity using the disk diffusion method. Following initial fractionation, two fractions (E and F) displayed antibacterial activity against all three pathogens (p > .05). The only fraction to display clear inhibition using both each was fraction E1, inhibiting the growth of L. monocytogenes, and was found to contain compounds belonging to a group of C. annuum-specific compounds called capsianosides.

    Fresh preservation of alfalfa sprouts and mushroom slices by soaking with thymol and resveratrol solutions

    Li-Jung Lai, Ju-Min Chiu and Robin Y.-Y. Chiou

    Version of Record online: 9 FEB 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.458

    Thymol and resveratrol exhibited potent inhibitory activities against growth of Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli. When cells of S. aureus were treated with thymol combined with resveratrol, both at 250 ppm, its 3LR value was <5 min. A synergistic antibacterial activity between thymol and resveratrol was apparent and known health beneficial activity of resveratrol is of virtue.

    Optimization of the extraction of the p-menthadienol isomers and aristolone contained in the essential oil from Elyonurus hensii using a 23 full factorial design

    Aubin Nestor Loumouamou, Kévin Bikindou, Ernest Bitemou, Pierre Chalard, Thomas Silou and Gilles Figueredo

    Version of Record online: 9 FEB 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.459

    The residual water content is the most important factor which significantly influences the average yield of the essential oil and the content of the major constituents. Regarding the aerial part, a low residual water content of the plant material increases the essential oil yield and the content of cis and trans-p-mentha-2.8-dien-1-ol. To the roots, the samples which have a very low residual water content should provide extracts richer in aristolone.

    Which product characteristics are preferred by Chinese consumers when choosing pork? A conjoint analysis on perceived quality of selected pork attributes

    Xiu Q. Ma, Julia M. Verkuil, Helene C. Reinbach and Lene Meinert

    Version of Record online: 22 JAN 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.457

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    A questionnaire was distributed among a group of Chinese consumers (n = 81). This showed that processing is the most important determinant of pork choice (36%) followed by fat content (27%), origin (18%), price (12%), and packaging (6.6%).
