    Blanching influences the phenolics composition, antioxidant activity, and inhibitory effect of Adansonia digitata leaves extract on α-amylase, α-glucosidase, and aldose reductase

    Emmanuel A. Irondi, Jacob K. Akintunde, Samson O. Agboola, Aline A. Boligon and Margareth L. Athayde

    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.

    Comparison of proximate composition and sensory attributes of Clariid catfish species of Clarias gariepinus, Heterobranchus bidorsalis, and their hybrids

    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.

    Euglena gracilis paramylon activates human lymphocytes by upregulating pro-inflammatory factors

    Rossella Russo, Laura Barsanti, Valter Evangelista, Anna M. Frassanito, Vincenzo Longo, Laura Pucci, Giuseppe Penno and Paolo Gualtieri

    Version of Record online: 20 MAY 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/fsn3.383

    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.

    The 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

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    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.
