Aijun Yang, Heather Smyth, Mridusmita Chaliha and Andrew James
Article first published online: 26 AUG 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.274
Traditional and nontraditional soy users had different preferences for soymilk and tofu produced from soybeans with or without lipoxygenase. The soy products from soybeans lacking lipoxygenases had significantly reduced rancid and bitterness odor and increased sweetness note and are therefore likely more acceptable to consumers.

Article first published online: 18 AUG 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.265
Settling depth of apple was determined by a water column and a digital camera. The depth was experimentally modeled using multivariate regression using a coded program in MATLAB software. The best models were based on the density, dropping height volume/mass with coefficient of determination and mean square error of 0.90 and 4.08, respectively.

The effect of freeze–thaw cycles on the nutritional quality of selected Nigerian soups was investigated. The soups were packaged in plastic and aluminum containers, frozen at −20°C, and thawed with microwave oven, hot water (100°C), and at ambient condition for four cycles of 5-day interval. Microwave-thawed plastic soups had limited nutritional losses when compared with other thawing methods, and should not be extended beyond the third cycle because of increasing reduction in fat and protein, indicating deterioration.

Yixiang Xu, Sheanell Burton, Chyer Kim and Edward Sismour
Article first published online: 7 AUG 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.264
Significant differences were found among the pomaces from four Virginia-grown grape varieties in relation to the concentrations of total phenolics, total flavonoids, total anthocyanins, tannins, and condensed tannins and to DPPH• and ABTS•+ free radical scavenging assays. All pomace extracts exhibited antibacterial activity against L. monocytogenes ATCC 7644 and S. aureus ATCC 29213, but not against E. coli O157:H7 ATCC 3510 or S. typhimurium ATCC 14028.
