      Evaluation of selected parameters related to proteolysis in dry-aged loins showed that sonication followed by inoculation with L. casei ŁOCK 0900 could be used as an effective measure to speed up the proteolytic changes in dry-aged meat cuts.

      Article first published online: 2 JUN 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/ijfs.12577

      The estimated percentage of total antioxidant capacity (TAC) of a reference Spanish standard diet covered by juices, nectars and fresh meat is 6.9% (juices and nectar) and 12.8% (fresh meat). Such data, coupled with an appropriate questionnaire to estimate antioxidant intake, will allow the investigation of the relation between dietary antioxidants and oxidative stress–induced diseases.

      The upper half of graphical abstract image showed that the cell morphology and structure of the untreated bacteria remained intact and regular. However, cells treated with the ethanol extracts were damaged in different degrees. The lower part of image was the HPLC chromatogram of the ethanol extract from R. rubescens.

    5. Influence of sonication and high hydrostatic pressure on the quality of carrot juice

      Saqib Jabbar, Muhammad Abid, Bing Hu, Malik Muhammad Hashim, Muhammad Saeeduddin, Shicheng Lei, Tao Wu and Xiaoxiong Zeng

      Article first published online: 2 JUN 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/ijfs.12567

      The study was conducted to evaluate the effects of combined treatments of US and HHP on quality of carrot juice in comparison with WB treatment. Both WB and US-HHP treatments resulted in improvements in colouring pigments as well as the inactivation of microbes and enzymes. But WB treatment causes reduction in ascorbic acid, total phenols, total flavonoids and tannins, while the US-HHP treatments enhance these compounds with the highest level at 450 MPa. It may be inferred that the combination of US-HHP450 could be utilised for the processing of carrot juice with improved quality and safety in terms of retention of desirable compounds and inactivation of microbes and enzymes.

    6. Development of a flavour fingerprint by GC-MS and GC-O combined with chemometric methods for the quality control of Korla pear (Pyrus serotina Reld)

      Honglei Tian, Ping Zhan, Zeyuan Deng, Haiyan Yan and Xinrong Zhu

      Article first published online: 2 JUN 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/ijfs.12584

      The compositions and contents of volatile compounds with active-odour in pears were significant different. Thus, a flavour fingerprint can be used to evaluate the quality of Korla pear. The clustering analysis was applied to ensure the fingerprint, while scores plot of PCA was performed to provide a visual determination of the similarity among the samples.

    11. Reduction of Listeria monocytogenes in cold-smoked salmon by bacteriophage P100, nisin and lauric arginate, singly or in combinations

      Kamlesh A. Soni, Qian Shen and Ramakrishna Nannapaneni

      Article first published online: 22 MAY 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/ijfs.12581

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      This study provides insight into the potential for combining chemical antimicrobial agents such as nisin and lauric arginate with a biological control agent, bacteriophage P100, for controlling L. monocytogenes in cold-smoked salmon. Cold-smoked salmon is one of the top 10 ready-to-eat (RTE) food products with the highest risk of L. monocytogenes contamination. Several reports have suggested that there is a high prevalence of L. monocytogenes in cold-smoked salmon in the USA and Europe. Our study demonstrated the effectiveness of single and combinations of GRAS antimicrobials (lauric arginate, bacteriophage and nisin) for inactivating the initial load of L. monocytogenes in cold-smoked salmon.

      The strains were isolated from the soy sauce. The strains a1 and a2 were isolated from sample A1, A2 and C2; strain b1 was isolated from B2; strain c1 was isolated from C2. In our study, we found that four lactic acid bacteria (LAB) including Lactobacillus acidipiscis, L. pobuzihii, Lactococcus piscium and Lactobacillus sp. and three Bacillus strains such as B. subtilis, B. oleronius and B. flexus were presented in the swollen canned soy sauce, whereas much less bacterial contaminants were detected in the normal samples.

    16. Slicing increases antioxidant capacity of fresh-cut lotus root (Nelumbo nucifera G.) slices by accumulating total phenols

      Jinqiang Hu, Lianzhi Yang, Wenjiang Wu, Ying Li and Lijuan Zhan

      Article first published online: 16 MAY 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/ijfs.12563

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Slicing induced 130.5% more total phenol (TP) in fresh cut lotus root slices (FLS) than intact ones after 7 d cool storage. These de novo synthesised TP were considered to contribute to increases in antioxidant capacity (AC) values, as a positive correlations between TP and AC was observed in FLS samples.

    18. American India Pale Ale matrix rich in xanthohumol is potent in suppressing proliferation and elevating apoptosis of human colon cancer cells

      Twila Henley, Lavanya Reddivari, Corey D. Broeckling, Marisa Bunning, Jeff Miller, John S. Avens, Martha Stone, Jessica E. Prenni and Jairam Vanamala

      Article first published online: 10 MAY 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/ijfs.12570

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Beer is the dietary source of bioactive xanthohumol (XN). Addition of dark malts and dry hopping not only elevated the xanthohumol content but also potentiated the anti-proliferaive and pro-apototic properties of beer matrices against human colon cancer (HCT116) cells. Whole beer matrices were more potent than isolated (XN and Isoxanthohunol; IX) compounds.

    19. Effects of chloride, thiocyanate and sulphate salts on β-lactoglobulin–pectin associative complexes

      Stacey Hirt and Owen G. Jones

      Article first published online: 10 MAY 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/ijfs.12560

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Sulphate and thiocyanate salts, apart from typically observed influences of ionic strength, were found to significantly influence the formation and phase behaviour of complexes between beta-lactoglobulin and pectin. Influences of these salts implied direct specific ion behaviour, which contrasted with inverse specific ion behaviour for the pure protein in the same conditions.
