In order to examine the quality of different types and different brands of plant-based meat, sensory evaluation and instrument testing were performed on 18 commercially available plant-based meat products, and the correlation analysis between the sensory evaluation results and the instrumental analysis results was carried out, and instrumental analysis results were analyzed to further explore the risk of allergens. The appearance, flavor and taste of the indicators could effectively evaluate the authenticity of the plant-based chicken nuggets, plant-based beef patties, and plant-based meat filling categories. The chewiness and shear force in the texture profile analysis (TPA) parameters could effectively evaluate the sensory indicators. The cohesiveness, chewiness (instrument) and shear force results of the plant-based meat could be used to predict the sensory softness, hardness, juiciness, firmness, graininess, fiber, elasticity (sensory) changes of the samples. There were significant differences in the color a* value of different types of plant-based chicken nuggets and plant-based beef patties before cooking (P<0.05), and the color L* value of different brands of plant-based meat filling before cooking was less different than a* and b* values. There were significant differences in the cooking loss rate of different brands of plant-based chicken nuggets (P<0.05). Among different brands of plant-based meat products, products containing soybean trypsi inhibutor (STI) accounted for 57.14% of the tested samples, products containing β-conglycinin accounted for 64.29% of the tested samples, products containing glycinin accounted for 57.14% of the tested samples, and products containing gluten accounted for 85.71% of the tested samples. This experiment compared the different brands of plant-based meat on the market, and would provide atheoretical reference for the establishment of evaluation indicators for plant-based meat products and potential allergen risk assessment.

In the reserch, a method for rapid identification of Xishui brown goat by rapid evaporative ionization mass spectrometry (REIMS) was established. This study obtained a real-time traceability detection method for Xishui brown goat conducting optimization of instrument parameters (The voltage was set to 40 V, the length was 2 cm, the incision depth was 0.5 cm, and the cutting time was 2 to 3 s) and model building after collection of lamb samples from different origins. Models were established using principal component analysis and partial least squares discriminant analysis, and marker compounds with variable weight value (VIP) >1 and ANOVA non-parametric test P value ≤0.05 were selected to establish identification component score plots, Loadings plots and abundance plots to identify the characteristic markers with large differences. The results showed that the model had good clustering separation effect and could be distinguished from other groupings with the identification accuracy of 97.32%. A number of characterized compounds with large difference were identified by LIPID MAPS database including sphingosine, phosphatidylinositol, heptadecadienoic acid, eicosadienoic acid and succinic acid. The developed testing method would provide a new identification idea for the origin traceability of Xishui brown goat with various advantages of pre-treatment free, short detection time, high recognition rate and stability.

Abstract(14) HTML](3) PDF(5)
In order to understand the variation rule of flavor compounds, the physical and chemical components, taste substances like free amino acids, nucleotides and their degradation products and volatile flavor components of cold-eating rabbits were studied during storage at room temperature (0, 3, 6, 9, 12, 15 d). The experimental results showed that the content of sodium chloride was above the threshold value during the storage at normal temperature, which could effectively present obvious saltiness. The main umami nucleotide in cold-eating rabbits was 5'-IMP, the content of which had no significant change after 0~12 d. The total content of flavor nucleotide decreased significantly (P<0.05), and there was no significant change from 0 to 6 days, according to the analysis of the change of total nucleotide content, 6 days of storage could be regarded as the key time point for the change of taste nucleotide. Asp, Glu, 5'-IMP, 5'-AMP and 5'-GMP synergistic effect enhanced the taste of cold eating rabbits. Combined with equivalent umami concentration, it was not significantly decreased from 0 to 6 days (P>0.05), and significantly decreased from 9 to 15 days (P<0.05). 6 d could be used as the key time point for the loss of cold-eating rabbit taste. A total of 62 compounds in 10 categories were detected by volatile flavor detection, the types of compounds increased from 0~6 d, and decreased from 6~15 d. Of which 19 compounds were found throughout the storage period, and the contents of linalool and anisole were the highest. Therefore, having cold-eating rabbits before 6 days had better flavor.

Abstract(17) HTML](6) PDF(3)
To study the effects of different storage temperatures (25, 15, 4 ℃) after harvest on the sugar components and related enzyme activities of "Shixia" longan fruits. The longan pulp soluble solid content (SSC), the content of three main sugars and the changes in the activities of sugar metabolism-related enzymes were measured. Principal component analysis and load factor analysis were performed on samples at different storage temperatures and various periods, and the correlation analysis of each index was performed. The results showed that the SSC of longan stored at 25 ℃ decreased the fastest, from 23.5% to 22.0% after 8 days of storage, and the sucrose content decreased the fastest, but the glucose and fructose content showed an upward trend; both 15 and 4 ℃ could effectively delay SSC. The decrease in SSC of longan stored at 4 ℃ was slower and the sucrose and glucose content decreased the slowest, but the decrease in fructose content was faster than 15 ℃. The acid invertase (AI), neutral invertase (NI) and sucrose synthase (SS) activities of longan pulp stored at different temperatures all increase with the storage time, the amplitude and speed of the increase is the fastest at 25 °C, at 15 °C Secondly, the 4 ℃ rise was the most gentle, indicating that low temperature significantly inhibited the increase in the activity of sucrose metabolizing enzymes. Correlation analysis shows that the sucrose content of longan stored at different temperatures had a very significant positive correlation with SSC, indicating that SSC could reflect the sucrose content to a certain extent; the sucrose content had a significant positive correlation with the glucose content, and it was also significant with AI, NI, and SS. Negative correlation, it was inferred that glucose and fructose were degraded from sucrose; glucose content and fructose content were extremely significantly positively correlated, but the two decline patterns in 15 ℃ and 4 ℃ storage fruits were inconsistent, suggesting that the consumption of the two was different. The above results indicate that low temperature can significantly inhibit the increase of sugar metabolism and related enzyme activities in longan fruit, thereby slowing down the decomposition of sugar during storage and prolonging the storage time. Among them, the storage effect at 4 ℃ is the best.

Objective: To study the antioxidant activity of Pueraria lobata polysaccharide and its hypoglycemic effect. Method: The polysaccharides of Pueraria lobata were extracted by water extraction and alcohol precipitation method, and the polysaccharide content and the antioxidant capacity of Pueraria lobata polysaccharides were determined. Rats were intraperitoneally injected with streptozotocin (STZ) to establish a type 1 diabetes model (T1DM), which was divided into normal group (distilled water 100 mg/kg), model group (distilled water 100 mg/kg), high-dose Pueraria lobata polysaccharide group (100 mg/kg), Pueraria lobata polysaccharide low-dose group (50 mg/kg), positive group (metformin 100 mg/kg), the rats' body weight and fasting blood glucose (FBG) were measured regularly for 8 weeks. In the last week, an oral glucose tolerance (OGTT) test was performed, and rat serum and liver were taken to determine the changes in lipid metabolism indexes and related oxidases in rats. Results: The content of Pueraria lobata polysaccharide was 87.80%, and the scavenging abilities of DPPH·, ABTS+·, ·OH, and PTIO were 90.2%, 83.3%, 81.3%, and 89.0% at a concentration of 1000 μg/mL, respectively. Compared with the model group, Pueraria lobata polysaccharide could effectively alleviate the weight loss of T1DM rats, significantly reduced their FBG (P<0.05), and significantly increased the level of OGTT (P<0.05). After high-dose treatment with Pueraria lobata polysaccharide, TC, TG, the levels of LDL-C and MDA decreased significantly, and the levels of HDL-C, SOD, GSH and CAT increased significantly (P<0.05). All indicators were dose-dependent. Conclusion: Pueraria lobata polysaccharide has good antioxidant properties and can reduce blood sugar by improving lipid metabolism and oxidative stress in T1DM rats.

Abstract(7) HTML](2) PDF(1)
To explore the protective effect and possible mechanism of probiotics combined with resveratrol on chronic alcoholic liver injury, C57BL/6J mice were used to construct chronic alcoholic liver injury model. Mice were randomly divided into the control group (Con group), themodel group (Mod group), three intervention groups of probiotics combined with resveratrol (Res) (Lactobacillus paracasei J5+Res (J5+Res), Lactobacillus casei YRL577+Res (YRL577+Res), Bifidobacterium animalis F1-7+Res (F1-7+Res)) groups, and the positive drug tiopronin group (LP group). After the experiment, the liver lipid content, alcohol metabolism enzyme activities, oxidative stress level and other indexes of mice were investigated. In order to further explore the mechanism of the combined action, the mRNA expressions of oxidative stress related genes CYP2E1, nuclear factor erythroid-2-related factor 2 (Nrf2) and heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) in liver were analyzed. The results showed that compared with Mod group, probiotics combined with resveratrol could significantly reduce the contents of triglyceride, total cholesterol, serum aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase activites in liver of mice (P<0.05), increase the activities of alcohol metabolism enzymes alcohol dehydrogenase and acetaldehyde dehydrogenase in liver, inhibit the activity of CYP2E1 and its mRNA expression in liver. In addition, the contents of glutathione as well as the activities of superoxide dismutase and catalase in liver were significantly increased (P<0.05), the Nrf2/HO-1 pathway was effectively activated compared with Mod group (P<0.05). Nrf2 mRNA expression was up-regulated by 2.6, 3.7 and 2.7 times in J5+Res, YRL577+Res and F1-7+Res groups, and HO-1 was up-regulated by 2.0, 6.2 and 4.0 times, respectively. Therefore, probiotics combined with resveratrol mayprevente chronic alcoholic liver injury through the Nrf2/HO-1 pathway.

Objective: To explore the inhibitive effect and underlying mechanism of Morinda officinalis (MO) on human colorectal cancer cell HCT-116 xenograft tumor model. Methods: Xenograft tumor model was established through transplanting human colorectal cancer cell into the armpits of male nude mice. Four groups were divided for appropriate administration, including control group (water, once a day), 5-Fluorouracil (30 mg/kg, once per three days) group, ethanol extract of Morinda Officinalis (EEMO) group (12 mg/kg/d) and crude drug of Morinda Officinalis (CDMO) group (200 mg/kg/d). The administration of drugs was lasted for 23 days. Tumor weight, tumor volume and pathological changes were detected. Protein expression of Hypoxia inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α), Cyclooxygenase-2/Prostaglandin E2 (COX-2/PGE2) pathway and macrophage polarization were determined after the experiment. Results: Both EEMO and CDMO could significantly inhibited the weight and growth of HCT-116 xenograft tumor (P<0.01), lowered the content of PGE2 (P<0.05), reduced the expression of HIF-1α, COX-2 and VEGF in tumor (P<0.01 and P<0.05). Additionally, EEMO and CDMO could remarkably increase the ratio of M1-like macrophage phenotype in tumor microenvironment (P<0.01). Conclusion: MO exerted anti-tumor effect partly via inhibiting expression of HIF-1α, COX-2/PGE2 pathway and polarizing tumor-associated macrophages toward M1-like macrophage phenotype.

Abstract(7) HTML](8) PDF(2)
In order to investigate the effects of different thawing methods (microwave thawing, ultrasonic-assisted thawing, saline thawing and low temperature thawing) on the freshness and volatile flavor compounds of anchovy, the thawing time, water-holding capacity, total viable counts and volatile base nitrogen (TVB-N) of the samples with different thawing methods were analyzed, and electronic nose analysis and detection of volatile flavor compounds was also performed. The results showed that the microwave thawing time was the shortest (22.4 min). Samples thawed in microwave oven maintained the largest water holding capacity, total viable counts and TVB-N value. The ultrasonic-assisted thawing group had the lowest total viable counts and TVB-N value and highest sensory score. The electronic nose could distinguish the odor of anchovy under different thawing methods. The odor of the refrigerator thawing was the biggest difference with the other three groups and the freshness was poor. 36, 41, 45 and 43 volatile compounds were identified in anchovy under four thawing methods, mainly aldehydes and alcohols. Among them, hexanal, heptanal, octanal, nonanal, decanal, phenylacetaldehyde, 1-penten-3-ol, 1-octen-3-ol, benzene and trimethylamine played an important role in the overall flavor formation of anchovy after thawing. Combined with thawing efficiency, freshness index and volatile flavor compounds, ultrasonic assisted thawing was determined to be a better thawing method for frozen anchovy. This study can provide a theoretical basis for processing, transportation and comprehensive utilization of anchovy.

The results showed that the content of catechins in different types of white tea varied greatly, the total catechin content of Gongmei was the highest and that of Shoumei was the lowest, which were 66.84 and 32.66 mg/g respectively, and a total of fifty aroma substances were detected in all white tea, the main aroma components consisted of hexanal, (E)-2-hexenal, benzaldehyde, linalool and its oxides (I, II). The aroma composition and content of Baihaoyinzhen, Baimudan, Gongmei and Shoumei were different from those of the New White tea. Among them, eight aroma components such as (E)-2-pentenoaldehyde and 2-heptanone existed in a large number in the four traditional white tea, but they were not detected in the New White tea. Through multi-component chemometric analysis, it was found that there were significant differences in catechins and aroma metabolites between Baihaoyinzhen, Baimudan, Gongmei and New White tea, but there was little difference between Shoumei and New White tea. This study preliminarily proved the quality differences of different types of white tea, which provided a theoretical basis for the regulation of white tea flavor quality.

Abstract(29) HTML(6) PDF(6)
The molecule self-assembly technology was used to prepare astaxanthin/whey protein nanocomplex, and the interaction mechanism between astaxanthin (AST) and whey protein was studied. By controlling the proportion of astaxanthin organic solution and whey protein aqueous phase, whey protein (α-lactalbumin, β-lactoglobulin, whey protein concentrate and bovine serum albumin) and astaxanthin were used for preparing well formed H aggregates or J aggregates astaxanthin/bovine serum albumin nanocomplexes, the resultant H/J AWC-NPs were spherical with 150~430 nm diameter, polydispersity index (PDI) showed good dispersity and −12~−1 mV Zeta potential measured by dynamic light scattering (DLS). Both H aggregates and J aggregates astaxanthin/whey protein nanocomplexes were near spherical with clear and smooth edges by transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The analysis by ultraviolet-visible absorption spectra revealed that the absorption maximum λmax of astaxanthin H aggregates was shifted from 480 nm of astaxanthin monomer blue to 388 nm, and the absorption maximum λmax of astaxanthin J aggregates was shifted red, showing a parallel peak at about 519 and 556 nm. The fluorescence spectrum analysis showed that the fluorescence intensity of astaxanthin/whey protein nanocomplex was significantly enhanced due to the specific structure of astaxanthin aggregates, and hydrophobic amino acids and hydrophobic regions in whey protein were exposed. In this study, the water dispersion of astaxanthin and its aggregates and the characteristics of whey protein carrier were investigated to provide theoretical basis for its subsequent development and application in the field of food and medicine.

Abstract(18) HTML(6) PDF(6)
This paper aimed to explore the effect of Lactobacillus plantarum microcapsules fermentation on the quality of carrot chips, and the change of viable cell count under freeze-drying and simulated gastric juice conditions. In this study, Lactobacillus plantarum microcapsules were prepared by extrusion method using sodium alginate and isolated whey protein as wall materials. The carrot chips fermented with Lactobacillus plantarum microcapsules were used as experimental group and the carrot chips fermented without microcapsules were used as control group. The results showed that there were no significant differences in texture, color, total sugar content, carotene content and ascorbic acid content between test group and control group (P>0.05). In freeze-drying and simulated gastric juice environment, the number of viable bacteria in the test group was significantly higher than that in the control group, which remained (8.47±0.02) and (8.31±0.01) lg(CFU/g), respectively. Microencapsulated Lactobacillus plantarum fermentation had no prominent effect on the quality of carrot chips and could improve the resistance of Lactobacillus plantarum to adverse environments (such as freeze-drying and gastric juice).

Abstract(18) HTML(7) PDF(4)
In order to increase and stabilize the content of tetramethylpyrazine in liquor, 13 strains of Bacillus were isolated from Maotai Daqu samples, and 5 strains with excellent protease production were selected through the preliminary screening of protease transparent circle test. After a liquid fermentation test, a functional bacterium with high yield of tetramethylpyrazine was screened out. The content of tetramethylpyrazine in the fermentation broth was 12.22 mg/L, which was identified as Bacillus licheniformis GTBL-168. The seed culture solution of this strain was inoculated into the sauce-flavor liquor accumulation culture at 0%, 3%, 5%, and 7% (v/w) to synergize the fermentation with traditional Daqu, and accumulate acetoin and tetramethyl in the glutinous rice grains. The content of pyrazine increased, and the increasing was the largest when the inoculation amount was 7%, and the yield of tetramethylpyrazine increased by 24.88% compared with the control group, the overall changes in physical and chemical indexes were obvious, and the amino nitrogen and total acid increased, the addition of Bacillus licheniformis GTBL-168 had little effect on the microbial structure of the accumulated fermented grains. With the increasing of the inoculation amount, the abundance of Bacillus and other dominant bacteria in the fermented grains also increased. It would lay a foundation for the application of functional bacteria in the process of stacking fermentation.

In order to explore the origin differences of black tea metabolites, the metabolites in black tea produced in Fu 'an and Youxi of Fujian province were compared and analyzed by using sensory evaluation method and extensive targeting metabolomic determination method of ultra-performance liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS). The results showed that, Fu'an black tea mainly tasted of “mellow and soft”, while Youxi black tea of “mellow and sweet”. A total of 937 metabolites including of flavonoids, phenolic acids, lipids, organic acids, amino acids and their derivatives were identified by metabonomics in the black tea of the two regions, through the principal component analysis (PCA) and orthogonal partial least-squares discriminant analysis (OPLS-DA) could significantly distinguish different producing area of black tea, and identified 410 species of metabolites with significant difference. The relative content of 291 different metabolites in Youxi black tea was higher than that of Fu 'an black tea, among which Astragalin, EC, L-glutamine, L-aspartic acid, L-lysine, L-tryptophan, L-glutamic acid, chlorogenic acid, phenethylamine, vitexin-2''-O-rhamnoside might have important contributions to the formation of different taste and quality of black tea from the two regions. Metabolic pathway analysis showed that the metabolism levels of amino acids and flavonoids of black tea between the two places were significantly different, which might be the reason for the difference in the taste and quality of black tea between the two places. The research would provide a theoretical basis for the identification of tea origin.

Abstract(20) HTML(7) PDF(7)
In order to quickly and accurately non-destructive real-time monitoring of fish freshness, a visual colorimetric array sensor was constructed in this study based on anodized aluminum flakes as the substrate and 13 indicators selected as gas-sensitive materials. The freshness of turbot during storage was measured by using the constructed colorimetric array sensor. The results showed that the total volatile basic nitrogen (TVB-N) value of turbot reached 32.85 mg/100 g when the storage time was more than 22 h at 25 ℃, and the fish was rotten. At this time, the color of the array points in the colorimetric sensor array changed. The RGB values of sensor array points before and after response were extracted and subtracted, and the clustering analysis and principal component analysis were carried out. The results showed that the colorimetric array sensor was able to accurately distinguish the freshness of fish in different storage time periods. In addition, the array sensor was applied to detect the freshness of carp and American redfish at different storage times, and the results showed that there was no significant difference between the TVB-N values predicted by the colorimetric array sensor and the actual measured values. Therefore, it is feasible to apply the sensor to fish freshness monitoring.

Abstract(47) HTML(9) PDF(12)
Wheat germ powder was hydrolyzed by compound protease, and the effects of ratio of material to liquid, amount of enzyme and hydrolysis time on the quality characteristics of wheat germ powder were analyzed. At the same time, three groups of enzyme hydrolyzed powder with the highest water solubility index of wheat germ hydrolyzed powder and milk powder were compounded and sensory evaluation was made to determine the best compound ratio. The results showed that the quality of wheat germ powder hydrolyzed by protease was better than that of wheat germ ultrafine powder. When the ratio of material to liquid was 1:5 g/mL, the amount of enzyme was 4400 U/g and the reaction time was 2.5 h, the water solubility index of wheat germ powder reached the maximum, which was 60.6 g/g. Compared with the water solubility index 30.22 and 30.65 g/g of raw powder and ultra-fine powder, the water solubility index of wheat germ powder increased by about two times after enzymatic hydrolysis. When the ratio of material to liquid was 1:4 g/mL, the amount of enzyme was 4400 U/g and the reaction time was 2.5 h, the absorbance value decreased from 0.501 to 0.348 of unhydrolyzed wheat germ powder, and the lipase activity in enzymatic hydrolyzed wheat germ powder reached the minimum. After enzymatic hydrolysis with compound protease, the water solubility index of wheat germ powder was greatly increased, the lipase activity of wheat germ powder decreased, and the effect of enzymatic hydrolysis on the color difference of wheat germ powder was not significant. In the experiment of compounding with milk powder, whether it was wheat germ powder, ultra-fine powder or enzyme hydrolyzed powder, the highest sensory scores was obtained when the addition amount was 30%.

Using the response surface method, with proportion of neutral protease/alkaline protease, pH, substrate concentration, enzymolysis temperature, digestion time as test factors, the optimum enzymatic hydrolysis parameters of ACE inhibitory peptide from jujube kernel were optimized. The results showed that neutral protease and alkaline protease were selected as complex enzymes, and the optimal amount of enzyme was determined to be 6000 U/g. The order of influence of five factors on the ACE inhibition rate and hydrolysis degree was: Enzymatic hydrolysis temperature, enzymatic hydrolysis time, pH, ratio of neutral protease to alkaline protease, substrate concentration.

Abstract(34) HTML(8) PDF(10)
In this paper, a two-step hot air and microwave drying method was used to dry Porphyra, and the drying process was optimized. Taking the total drying time of Porphyra, the contents of protein and total sugar in dried Porphyra as indexes, the optimal drying process was obtained by using central composite design, model fitting by either quadratic polynomial or neural network, and genetic algorithm optimization. The results showed that the total drying time for sequential hot air drying(first) and microwave drying(later) was shorter than that for sequential microwave drying and hot air drying. In the case of sequential hot air drying(first) and microwave drying(later), the total drying time required to reduce the moisture content to 0.1 g/g DM was the shortest (62.5±1.4 min), if the hot air drying temperature and time were 65 ℃ and 1 h, and the subsequent microwave power was 400 W. Comparing the contents of protein and total sugar in dried Porphyra obtained under the optimal process conditions of the two drying methods, the quality of dried Porphyra obtained by sequential hot air drying(first) and microwave drying(later) was better than sequential microwave drying(first) and hot air drying(later). A highest protein content of 68.82±1.46 mg/g DM was obtained, when the hot air drying temperature and time were 48 ℃ and 3 h, and the subsequent microwave power was 240 W. Moreover, if the samples were first air dried at 65 ℃ for 2 h and then microwave processed at 240 W to the end, the total sugar content was the highest (124.72±7.17 mg/g DM). Generally, the sequential hot air drying(first) and microwave drying(later) would be suitable for the dehydration of Porphyra in terms of drying time and product quality.

The polysaccharide was degraded by ascorbic acid and hydrogen peroxide, and the optimal degradation conditions were obtained by the index of DPPH free radical scavenging rate. Then the degradation products were classified by ultrafiltration to obtain different molecular weight components, and their activities were analyzed. The optimal degradation conditions were H2O2-VC 20 mmol/L, 45 ℃ and 3 h. Under these conditions, the DPPH free radical scavenging rate reached 61.23%, and the yield of degradation products was 73.16%. Electrophoretic results showed that the bands of the degraded polysaccharides were obviously in the low molecular weight region. Then the degradation products were classified into four different molecular weight fractions, as <5 kDa, 5~10 kDa, 10~30 kDa and >30 kDa by ultrafiltration. There were significant differences among the molecular weight segments (P<0.05), especially the <5 kDa component (main component 2.140×103 Da, 29.6%) had the best biological activity. The DPPH free radical scavenging rate was 59.27%, and the moisture retention rate was 75.75% after 60 h, the tyrosinase inhibition rate was 65.28%. The content of uronic acid of the <5 kDa component decreased slightly compared with polysaccharides. The results could provide theoretical basis for the application of polysaccharides in functional food and other fields.

Using tapioca starch as raw material, starch nanoparticles were prepared by ultrasonic stirring, and characterized by scanning electron microscopy, laser nanoparticle sizer, and X-ray diffraction. In the sedimentation stage of starch nanoparticles, kaempferol solution was used as the non-solvent phase with 0.7 mg/mL kaempferol solution to simultaneously embed kaempferol to prepare kaempferol starch nanoparticles. The influence of ethanol concentration on the embedding rate of kaempferol was explored, and the release rate and stability of kaempferol after embedding were investigated. The results showed that when the ethanol concentration was 60%, starch nanoparticles were formed, and the size was uniformly distributed between 50 and 200 nm, when the ethanol concentration was less than 40%, V-shaped starch particles were formed. When the ethanol concentration was 30%, the entrapment rate of kaempferol was the highest, at 62.94%, and the embedding amount was 3.78 mg/g. In a simulated body fluid environment, the kaempferol starch nanoparticles can continuously release the drug for 20 h. The release rate was 88.75%, while the original kaempferol was almost completely released in 3 h, the release rate was 93.75%, and the release rate increased with the increasing of the ethanol concentration of the sustained-release medium. Compared with the aqueous solution of kaempferol, the retention rate of kaempferol increased from 43.17% to 75% when the kaempferol starch nanoparticles were allowed to stand at room temperature for 5 h, which had a stable embedding effect. It could be seen that the simultaneous embedding preparation technology would have a good embedding slow-release effect and stabilizing effect on kaempferol.

Abstract(15) HTML(5) PDF(1)
The contents of cyanogenic glycosides (Cyanogenic Glycosides, CNGs) are very important to evaluate the safety of sweet cassava roots and their products. Using cassava roots and cassava products as test materials in this study, a method for rapid extraction and high performance liquid chromatography-evaporative light scattering (HPLC-ELSD) detection of two kinds of cyanogenic glycosides was established. The content of CNGs in different varieties of cassava roots, cassava flour, and their products were analyzed. The results showed that the optimal extraction concentrations of sulfuric acid solution for these two GNSs from cassava roots and flour were 0.025 and 0.100 mol/L, respectively. The HPLC-ELSD method was effective in the separation of linamarin and lotaustralin. The linear correlation was good in the range of 4.1 to 820.0 mg/L and 2.5 to 250.0 mg/L, which correlation coefficients (r) reached 0.9996 and 0.9993 respectively. The LOD was 2.1 and 0.5 mg/L, and the LOQ was 8.2 and 2.0 mg/kg, respectively. The relative standard deviation (RSD) of repeatability and sample stability are both less than 5.0%. The average recovery rates of two CNGs in cassava roots and cassava products were between 89.3%~96.3% and 107.5%~114.9%, respectively. And the RSD of the repeatability of the recovery was less than 3.4%. The results of sample verification showed that the content of CNGs in different cassava varieties were quite different, The content of CNGs was lower in cassava flour which was prepared from cassava grown for 8~9 months, and the cooking method could effectively remove CNGs in cassava food. This method was simple, stable and accurate, and had a strong application prospect in the analysis and evaluation of CNGs in sweet cassava roots and their products.

A method was established for the detection of nonylphenol migration in instant noodle barrel by high performance liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC/MS/MS). Using this method, we conduct risk analysis and assessment to marketed instant noodle barrels. The chromatographic separation and solid phase extraction conditions were optimized. The calibration curves of the nonylphenol showed good linear relationship in the range of 1~500 μg/L. The limits of detection ranged from 0.002~0.004 μg/L. The recoveries of real samples migration fluid at different spiked levels were in the range of 79.8%~105.2%, and the relative standard deviations (RSDs) were 1.74%~9.88%. 54 batches commercial instant noodle barrel were determined with this method, 45 samples detected nonylphenol, and nonylphenol content was 0.006~0.079 µg/L. According to the test results, the safety of nonyphenol in the instant noodle barrel was analyzed. The maximum daily intake of nonyphenol was 0.0237 µg/d, which was far lower than the health guidance value of nonyphenol (3 µg/d), indicating that the instant noodle barrel in the market is relatively safe and has a low risk to human health.

Mature corn grains is an important food ration for residents in our country, but its edible flavor quality was rarely reported. The volatile organic components (VOCs) in whole grain powder with different treatment of 5 high-quality yellow grain maize varieties were detected with gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS), the results showed that a total of 101 species of VOCs were identified, but only 60~70 species were found in a single variety. These VOCs could be divided into 12 categories, of which, the number of esters, alkanes and ketones were more, followed by alcohols, aldehydes and amides. When the composition of VOCs were analyzed, it was also found that there were about 20 species of components with high content at the level of over 106 peak area, which constituted 80% of the total volatile substances content, in these high content components, 13 were co-owned which were present in all samples, and 4~16 were specific which varied among varieties. There were two species of high content components at the level of 107 peak area, n-dodecane and tert-butanol were identified, which were considered to be important volatile substances in corn. The detection results also showed that the relative total content of VOCs in the samples distributed from 36.660 to 68.001 mg/kg. When they were compared each other, it was also found that the total content of VOCs was significantly different among varieties and samples, including different storage time and packages. The content of aroma substances in newly harvested grains was the highest. The ears or grains was stored naturally 1 year, its VOCs lost about 1/5. While the whole powder was stored naturally 1 year, its VOCs lost nearly a third. But the powder being stored in vacuum bags and under the low temperature 3 years, the loss of VOCs was slightly. These results suggested that the aroma substances content in corn was a variety characteristic. Excellent varieties and special production areas could effectively increase the kinds and the content of aroma substances in grains. Storage time and storage conditions could significantly affect the quality of aroma. Storage under the conditions of low temperature and vacuum could effectively maintain the quality of aroma. These results provided important reference data for quality evaluation of high quality edible corn.

Abstract(15) HTML(11) PDF(6)
Twelve varieties of kiwifruit from the three major lines of Meiwei, Zhonghua and Ruanzao from the two main producing areas of Shaanxi and Sichuan provinces were used as test materials. The main antioxidant active substances, polyphenols, flavonoids, VC, and the content of monomer phenols in fruit were determined. The antioxidant activity in vitro was compared, and the correlation analysis between the antioxidant activity and the antioxidant capacity of fruit juice was carried out, and the varieties with high antioxidant content and strong antioxidant activity were screened out. Results showed that there were significant differences in the antioxidant activity content and antioxidant capacity of different varieties of kiwifruit (P<0.05). The content of VC varied greatly among different varieties, ranging from 27.300 to 130.380 mg/100 g. The content of flavonoids in two varieties of Ruanzao (Yiyu and Lvmi) was significantly higher than that of other varieties (P<0.05). Protocatechin, catechin, chlorogenic acid, and epicatechin were the main polyphenol compounds in kiwifruit. Hongyang, Cuixiang, Yate, and Huayou had strong scavenging ability on DPPH· and ABTS+·, while Yiyu and Lvmi had strong scavenging ability and total reducing power on ·OH. The content of polyphenols in each kiwifruit had a significant correlation with the total reducing power (P<0.05), and there were also correlations between the content of monophenols, and between monophenols and antioxidant activity. According to cluster analysis based on antioxidant activity, twelve varieties of kiwifruit could be divided into six categories. Comprehensive analysis showed that among the 12 varieties, Ruanzao had the strongest antioxidant activity. The research results would provide a scientific basis for the selection of kiwifruit varieties with high antioxidant activity during fresh food and processing.

Abstract(16) HTML(9) PDF(4)
In order to study the volatile composition of onion, the volatile flavoring substances of the onion were extracted by headspace solid phase microextraction and determined by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. The effects of extraction fiber head, extraction temperature, extraction time and desorption time on the total peak area and the number of effective compounds were investigated. The optimum extraction conditions were determined as follows: Extraction fiber 50/30 μm DVB/CAR/PDMS, extraction temperature 60 ℃, extraction time 60 min and desorption time 5 min. Under the optimum experimental conditions, the volatile compounds of onion with three different colors were analyzed and identified. The results showed that a total of 61 kinds of volatile flavor compounds were identified. A total of 37, 40 and 49 volatile flavor compounds were detected in the white, red, and yellow onions, respectively, and the peak area content of these volatile flavor compounds accounted for 70.29%, 81.92% and 79.03% of the total volatile components, respectively. In the 61 volatile flavor compounds, 27 were sulfur compounds, 13 were aldehydes, 13 were alcohols, 4 were ketones and 4 were others. There were 22 kinds of volatile components in the three color onions, of which sulfur-containing compounds account for a relatively large proportion, especially the relative content of diisopropyl disulfide and (E)-1-propenyl-2-propenyl disulfide. The sum of the volatile components of the three color onions accounted for more than 20%, which contributed a lot to the formation of the characteristic flavor of onions. The relative content of sulfur compounds in red and yellow onions was much higher than that of white onions. The relative content of 2-methyl-2-pentenoaldehyde in red onions was higher than that of white and yellow onions.

Abstract(19) HTML(8) PDF(1)
In order to evaluate the quality parameters for short-term stored paddy with slightly high moisture, this study determined the changes in intergranular air relative humidity (RH) and wetbulb temperature of grain bulk with an equilibrium moisture model and Newton-Raphson method, and analyzed the effect of their accumulation amount during storage on thermal and thermo-mechanical properties, and lipid components, and appearance quality indexes in milled rice. The japonica paddy with 15.3% MC was put into warehouse in winter and stored for 163 days, when the average dry temperature in bulk increased from 8.3 to 22.9°C, the average RH in bulk layer 1, 2, 3, and 4 respectively increased 3.6%, 3.0%, 2.9%, and 2.9% from 75.1%, and wetbulb temperature respectively increased 15.21, 13.57, 13.47 and 13.29 °C from 6.2 °C, showing no damage from stored insects and fungi. The gelatinization peak temperature of rice flour measured by DSC remained unchanged. A Mixolab analysis showed, during paddy storage from 45 to 213 d, dough development time and stability time, and starch setback torque gradually increased, but enzymatic speed decreased. GC-MS analysis showed the percent of the main fatty acid species kept unchanged during 213 d paddy storage. External indexes like accumulation of grain bulk maximum temperature, and accumulation of wetbulb temperature corresponding to bulk maximum temperature, and internal indexes such as the temperature, area and height of rice flour gelatinization peak measured by DSC, and dough development time and stability time, gelatinization peak torque and enzymatic speed in rice flour measured by a Mixolab, and fatty acid components (C14:1, C14:0, C20:5n3, C20:3n6, C20:2, C20:1, C24:1, C24:0), as well as rice appearance quality indexes like head rice percentage, small broken kernel rate, and kernel size could be used as the evaluation indexes for the low temperature storage of a japonica paddy with slightly high moisture.

Objective: Evaluating the effects of plasma-activated water (PAW) used as a thawing medium on the microbial safety and fresh quality of beef. Methods: The PAW was prepared by treating the 300 mL deionized water with the plasma jet for various times (40, 60, 80, 100, 120 s). Using the PAW, which was placed at room temperature (25 ℃) to thaw the frozen beef tendon meat for 10 min, and the mass ratio of PAW to beef was 4:1. The beef’s and the thawing media’s physicochemical properties such as the total number of colonies, nitrite, and pH were assessed, and water retention (purge loss, water holding capacity), lipid oxidation, and protein loss of beef were evaluated. Results: As the preparation time of plasma-activated water prolonged, the antibacterial activity of PAW significantly increased (P<0.05), and the number of total viable bacteria in beef after thawing treatment was reduced by 0.91 lg (CFU/g). PAW treatment significantly enhanced the water holding capacity of beef (P<0.05). After thawing, the juice leakage, lipid oxidation and protein loss were reduced by 1.83%, 0.0944 mg/kg and 0.085 mg/mL, respectively. After thawing, the maximum content of nitrite content in beef was 3.38 mg/kg, which was still lower than the limit of quantification, while the pH value of thawed meat only increased by 0.06. The results showed that such a treatment had no significant effect on the nitrite content and pH of beef (P<0.05). This study would provide a theoretical basis and data reference for the application of PAW in the thawing of frozen meat products.

Abstract(11) HTML(4) PDF(2)
Objective: To investigate the effects of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) on lipid accumulation and intestinal microbiota in obese rats. Methods: Forty SPF male SD rats were randomly divided into four groups according to body weight, 10 rats in each group. The ND group was fed with ordinary diet, and the other groups were fed with high-fat diet. Among them, the ND group was intragastrically administered with peanut oil 1 g/kg, the model group (HD group) was intragastrically administered with peanut oil 1 g/kg, the low-dose group (LC group) was intragastrically administered with 0.2% conjugated linoleic acid 1 g/kg, and the high-dose group (HC group) was intragastrically administered with 2% conjugated linoleic acid 1 g/kg for 9 weeks of intervention. Bacterial DNA was extracted from feces of mice after collection of feces at the end of the experiment followed by 16S rDNA sequencing, after which blood was collected and sacrificed under anesthesia, and organ and visceral fat were taken and stored at −80 ℃. Results: The body weight, visceral fat, serum and liver triglycerides and total cholesterol of rats in the HD group were significantly higher than those in the ND group (P<0.05), and high-dose CLA intervention could significantly reduce the body weight, serum triglycerides, total cholesterol and liver total cholesterol of rats (P<0.05). High-fat diet could increase the relative abundance of Eubacterium_coprostanoligenes_group, Psychrobacter, Corynebacterium_1 and Staphylococcus in the intestinal microbiota level of rats. High-dose CLA could change the composition of intestinal microbiota in obese rats, such as significantly increasing the relative abundance of Bifidobacterium, Butyrivibrio and Ruminococcaceae_UCG-014 at the genus level (P<0.05) and reducing the relative abundance of Staphylococcus and Corynebacterium_1 (P<0.05). Conclusion: Conjugated linoleic acid could reduce body weight and lipid accumulation of obese rats induced by high fat diet, which might be related to the regulation of intestinal microbiotal diversity.

Abstract(30) HTML(3) PDF(10)
Using absolute ethanol as an inducer, a rat model of acute gastric mucosal injury was constructed, and the protective effects of Hericium erinaceus crude extract prepared in several different ways on the model of acute gastric mucosal injury induced by absolute ethanol were studied. Female SD rats were randomly divided into 7 groups (n=12): Normal control group (NC), model control group (ETH), Hericium erinaceus fruit body polysaccharide intervention group(WEH1), Hericium erinaceus mycelium polysaccharide intervention group (WEH2), Hericium erinaceus water extract intervention group (WEH3), liquid fermentation water extract intervention group (WEH4) and bismuth potassium citrate granule drug group (YWZ). In each sample groups, the gavage dose (10 mL/kg) of the sample was adjusted according to the weight change, and the sample was given 167 mg/kg, bismuth potassium citrate granules (0.24 g/kg, containing 24.1 mg of bismuth) for continuous intragastric administration for 30 days. Then the normal control group and the model group were directly given distilled water, and 5 mL/kg of absolute ethanol was used to make the model. The degree of injury of gastric mucosal tissue slices, the level of inflammatory factors and the antioxidant capacity were compared. Finally the results showed that comparing with the model group, the experimental group had significantly reduced gastric mucosal bleeding, congestion, necrosis, and pathology, and the total pathological scores were significantly different (P<0.05), the activities of superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione (GSH) were significantly increased (P<0.05), the content of malondialdehyde (MDA), tumor necrosis factor-α in serum and gastric tissue (TNF-α), interleukin-6(IL-6), interleukin-1β (IL-1β) inflammatory factors levels were significantly reduced (P<0.05). So the tests showed that several Hericium erinaceus extracts had varying degrees of protection against gastric mucosal damage in rats induced by absolute ethanol, among of them, the Hericium erinaceus mycelium polysaccharide had the best protective effect, while its mechanism of action might be similar to that of anti- oxidation was related to anti-inflammatory effects. The research results could provide a research foundation for the development and promotion of functional products of different Hericium erinaceus extracts.

Abstract(11) HTML(2) PDF(1)
Objective: To investigate the protective effect of Baihe Wuyao decoction (BWD) on mice with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) and liver damage, and to reveal its underlying mechanism. Methods: Ten of 70 mice were randomly selected as the blank group, and the rest were induced with intra-peritoneally (ip) streptozotocin (STZ) to induce T1DM. After successful modeling, the mice were randomly divided into 6 groups: Model group, positive control group and BWD groups (15, 5, 2.5, 1.25 g·kg−1·d−1). The mice in each group were given continuous administration for 6 weeks. The contents of alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) in the serum of mice were measured, and the contents of superoxidedismutase (SOD) and malonaldehyde (MDA) in liver tissue homogenate were detected. The pathological changes of mouse liver were observed. The expression of Protein kinase B (AKT) in mouse liver was detected, the mRNA level of manganese superoxide dismutase (Mn-SOD) and nitric oxide synthase (iNOS), inflammatory factors including tumor necrosis factor (TNF-α), nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB), interleukin-1β (IL-1β), interleukin-6 (IL-6), interleukin-8 (IL-8), apoptosis factors including B-cell lymphoma-2 (Bcl2), Bcl2-associated X protein (Bax), Caspase 3 (CASP3) were measured. Results: BWD exhibited a good hepatic protection with ameliorating hepatic pathological morphology in T1DM mice. Compared with the model group, the levels of ALT and AST in each dose group were significantly reduced (P<0.01, P<0.05), and the effect of the low 1 dose group was more obvious. The low 1 dose of BWD could significantly up-regulate p-AKT/AKT(P<0.05), low dose 1 could significantly down-regulate MDA, iNOS, and up-regulate SOD and Mn-SOD content(P<0.01, P<0.05). Comparing with the model group, the ratio of Bcl2/Bax at the low dose increased significantly, Bax and CASP3 were down-regulated, the low dose significantly reduced the expression of TNF-α, NF-κB, IL-1β, IL-6 and IL-8 at the gene level (P<0.01, P<0.05). Conclusion: The BWD would have a good hepatic protective effect during T1DM, which underlying mechanisms through improving insulin resistance and suppresses oxidative stress, apoptosis, inflammation and promotion of cell proliferation.

Abstract(7) HTML(3) PDF(1)
To study the mechanism of curcumin and/or aerobic exercise improving pyroptosis in myocardium of hyperlipidemic rats. Fifty 5-week-old male SD rats were randomly divided into normal diet control group (RDC), high fat diet control group (HDC), high fat diet with curcumin group (HDCC), high fat diet with aerobic exercise group (HDM), high fat diet with curcumin and aerobic exercise group (HDCM), ten in each group. From the third week, group HDCC and HDCM were injected intragastrically with curcumin at 400 g/(kg·d), and the other groups were given an equal volume of 0.5% sodium carboxymethylcellulose. Group HDM and HDCM performed aerobic exercise intervention, and the other groups did not. Twenty-four hours after the end of 6-week-intervention, the myocardial microstructure in each group was observed, blood and myocardium related biochemical indicators were tested. The results showed that, serum total cholesterol (TC), triglyceride (TG), low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), HDC were significantly higher than RDC (P<0.01). Serum TC and TG, HDCC, HDM and HDCM were significantly lower than HDC (P<0.01). Serum TC, HDCM decreased significantly compared with HDCC and HDM (P<0.05 or P<0.01). Serum LDL-C, HDCC and HDCM were significantly lower than HDC (P<0.05 or P<0.01), HDCM was significantly lower than HDCC and HDM (P<0.05 or P<0.01). Serum high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), HDC was significantly lower than RDC (P<0.05), HDCC, HDM and HDCM significantly were higher than HDC (P<0.05 or P<0.01), HDCM was significantly higher than HDM (P<0.01). The myocardial microstructure of RDC was normal, there were inflammatory injury in myocardium of HDC, injury in HDCC, HDM, HDCM were improved significantly, and HDCM was the most significant in the three. Myocardial interleukin-1β (IL-1β) and interleukin-18 (IL-18), HDC was significantly higher than RDC (P<0.01), HDCC, HDM and HDCM were significantly lower than HDC group (P<0.01), HDCC and HDM were significantly higher than HDCM (P<0.05 or P<0.01). Myocardial injury marker creatine kinase-MB (CK-MB), HDC was significantly higher than RDC (P<0.01), HDCC, HDM and HDCM were significantly lower than HDC (P<0.01), HDCM was significantly lower than HDCC and HDM (P<0.01). The H-score of myocardial NOD-like receptor protein 3 (NLRP3), apoptosis-associated speck-like protein containing CARD (ASC) and cysteinyl aspartate specific proteinase 1 (Caspase1), HDC was significantly lower than RDC (P<0.01), HDCC, HDM and HDCM were significantly higher than HDC (P<0.05 or P<0.01), HDCC and HDM were significantly lower than HDCM (P<0.05 or P<0.01). Therefore, the 6-week curcumin and/or aerobic exercise intervention could improve pyroptosis in myocardium of hyperlipidemic rats, inhibit excessive inflammatory response, and protect the heart function/structure, which might be related to inhibiting NLRP3/Caspase1 pathway. The effect of combined intervention was better.

Abstract(12) HTML(8) PDF(6)
In order to explore the effect of hammering time on the quality of beef gel, beef gel prepared by beating process was used as control group, the color difference, myofibrillar protein oxidation degree, cooking loss rate, fat exudation rate and texture characteristics of beef gel with different beating time were determined, and the mechanism of the impact of beat time on beef gel quality was studied through observing the changes of meat size, protein two level structure and microstructure of beef gel. The results showed that with the extension of beating time, the L* value and W value first decreased and then increased, and the a* value and b* value increased first and then decreased. The oxidation degree of myofibrillar protein increased, total thiol decreased, the carbonyl value and bromphenol blue binding capacity increased, cooking loss rate decreased and then increased with fat exudation, and the hardness and chewiness of gel texture increased gradually. Resilience, cohesion and resilience increased first and then decreased. 30 min was the cut-off point, and the gel quality of 30 min was on the rise, which was more than 30 min. The increasing of gel quality was due to the decreasing of meat particle size and the increasing of protein two level structure beta fold. The degradation of gel quality after 30 min was due to the deepening of protein oxidation and the change of gel microstructure. The results showed that the hammering process could improve the quality of minced meat, but excessive hammering could cause the quality deterioration of minced meat.

Abstract(6) HTML(2) PDF(1)
This study explored the effect of six different cooking methods (steaming, roasting, microwave, combined mode, inductor cooker steaming and inductor cooker) on the retention and absorption of vitamin C and nitrate of broccoli during in-vitro simulated gastrointestinal digestion, in search of healthy cooking technology which was easy to digestion and absorption. The results showed that the cooking time of the induction cooker (1~3 min) was the shortest while the one for roasting (6~11 min) was the longest in achieving the same maturity of broccoli. In addition, the samples treated with microwave or steaming had the highest retention and digestion of vitamin C, and the samples of roasted, combined mode or induction cooker steaming displayed the highest retention and absorption rate of nitrate. Therefore, inductor cooker steaming mode (P5 and P9) was considered the most suitable method in cooking broccoli to obtain the most appropriate digestion and absorption of vitamin C and nitrate.

Abstract(14) HTML(3) PDF(0)
In order to clarify the degradation pathway of anthocyanins in blueberry during storage and processing, the mechanism of coupled oxidation of anthocyanins-polyphenol oxidase-catechol was systematically studied, and the dose-response relationship among them was discussed. The enzymatic oxidation of catechol to quinones and the oxidation of anthocyanins with quinones were two main reactions in the coupled oxidation system. The coupled oxidation of anthocyanins degradation followed the first-order reaction kinetic model. Moreover, although the degradation rate of anthocyanins increased with the increasing of catechol concentration, when catechol concentration was higher than 1.33 mmol/L, the effect of catechol concentration on the degradation rate of anthocyanins decreased. The higher the initial concentration of anthocyanins, the lower the oxidation rate of catechol and the degradation rate of anthocyanins. The degradation rate of anthocyanins increased linearly with the increasing of enzyme concentration. It could be inferred that during the storage and processing of blueberry, PPO in the tissue would combine with its phenolic substrates to produce corresponding quinones, which would lead to the degradation of anthocyanins in blueberry through coupled oxidation reaction, and eventually lead to browning of fruit or related products. The browning rate was closely related to enzyme activity, phenolic substrate and anthocyanin content.

Abstract(8) HTML(2) PDF(1)
Taking fresh water surimi and Poria cocos full powder as research subjects, different contents of Poria cocos full powder(0, 1%, 2%, 3%, 4%, 5%) were added into the surimi of silver carp to analyze the effects of water retention, cooking degree, gel strength, whiteness value and texture profile analysis(TPA) index. The results showed that with the increasing of Poria cocos full powder, the water holding capacity, cooking rate and whiteness value of the surimi products all increased first and then decreased. Compared with the blank group, the addition of Poria cocos full powder could significantly improve the gel strength, hardness, elasticity and chewiness of surimi gel. When the Poria cocos full powder was 2%, the best water holding capacity of silver carp surimi products was 80.73%, the maximum gel strength was 642.886 g·cm, the minimum cooking loss rate was 6.94%, and the maximum whiteness value was 79.93. The hardness, elasticity, cohesion, and chewiness all reached the maximum, which were 2299.245 g, 0.973%, 0.859 g, and 1838.410 g, respectively, with the best textural properties. This experiment would provide a theoretical basis for the production of freshwater surimi products.

In order to study the changes of protein oxidation during heat processing, cattle tendon and shoulder were treated at different temperatures (40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100 ℃, holding time 30 min) and at 70 kPa high pressure for different times (15, 20, 25, 30, 35 min). The changes of carbonyl content, sulfhydryl content, protein particle size, surface hydrophobicity, SDS-PAGE electrophoresis and protein secondary structure were analyzed. The results showed that temperature could lead to the increasing of protein carbonyl content, sulfhydryl content first increased and then decreased, protein particle size increased, protein surface hydrophobicity first increased and then decreased. High pressure resulted in the increasing of protein carbonyl content, the decreasing of protein sulfhydryl content, the increasing of protein particle size and the increasing of protein hydrophobicity. In addition, myofibrillar proteins were degraded and aggregated obviously under different heat treatments, and a large number of small molecular proteins appeared. Infrared studies showed that the secondary structure of myofibrillar protein changes during heat processing, which urged the formation of the secondary structure of myofibrillar protein α-spiral β-the conversion between folding and irregular curling. It was concluded that temperature and pressure could promote the oxidation of beef protein and change the chemical force and secondary structure of beef protein. This study would provide a theoretical basis for the industrial regulation of low-temperature beef products.

In order to explore the effect of heating method and heating time on physicochemical properties of fish gelatin, the protein composition, viscosity, rheological properties and thermal stability of heated gelatin solutions, and the gel strength, texture profile analysis (TPA) parameters and microstructure of gelatin gels were analyzed and compared. The results showed that the viscosity, rheological properties and thermal stability of fish gelatin solutions decreased significantly with the increase of heating time, while the change extents of these properties in the intermittent heated gelatin were less than those in the continuous heated gelatin. When gelatin was heated for 48 h continuously, the β band disappeared in the electrophoresis pattern, and the α1 and α2 subunits degraded obviously after being heated for 96 h. When gelatin was heated for 96 h intermittently, the β band disappeared. The gel strength and TPA parameters of the gel prepared by fish gelatin gradually decreased with the increase of heating time, whereas the gel properties of the intermittent heated gelatin were superior to those of the continuous heated gelatin. Scanning electron microscope results showed that the surfaces of continuous heated gels were smooth and flat, while the structure of gel prepared by intermittent heated gelatin was rougher and more porous. The results suggested that intermittent heating and the heating less than 12 h could reduce the heat degradation of gelatin.

In this study, the defatted jujube kernel residue was extracted by alkali solubilization and acid seperation method to obtain jujube kernel protein, and the angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitory peptide was obtained by enzymatic hydrolysis of neutral protease and alkaline protease. Taking jujube kernel as the research object, the physicochemical properties of ACE inhibitory peptide were studied. In this paper, the functional activity and nutritional value of ACE inhibitory peptide in defatted jujube kernel were demonstrated from the aspect of amino acids by analyzing the basic nutrients of defatted jujube kernel and the amino acid composition of ACE inhibitory peptide in enzymolyzed jujube kernel. The enzymatic hydrolysis effect of jujube kernel protein was proved by molecular weight distribution, particle size distribution and microscopic structure observation. Finally, the physical and chemical properties of jujube seed, including solubility, thermal stability, water and oil retention, foaming and foaming stability, emulsification and emulsification stability, and sensory characteristics before and after proteolysis, were compared and analyzed. It was found that the protein content of defatted jujube kernel was (73.40±0.23) g/100 g, and the protein content was higher. The essential amino acid content and hydrophobic amino acid content in ACE inhibitory peptide of jujube kernel were 36.48% and 51.14%, and the content of glutamate was the highest. The molecular weight of ACE inhibitory peptides in Zizyphus jujube kernel was mainly in the range of 1000~3000 Da, accounting for 97.50%, and the polydispersity index was 1.088, indicating a narrow molecular weight distribution. The protein structure of jujube kernel was broken before and after enzymolysis of ACE inhibitory peptides, and the enzymolysis was sufficient. The study of physical and chemical properties showed that compared with the protein before enzymolysis, the thermal stability, solubility, water holding capacity, oil holding capacity and emulsification stability of the ACE inhibitory peptide of jujube kernel were significantly improved, while the foaming, foaming stability and emulsification ability significantly decreased(P<0.05). The results showed that the physicochemical properties of ACE inhibitory peptides in jujube kernel were significantly improved compared with those before enzymolysis(P<0.05). The discovery of related physicochemical properties laid a research foundation for the follow-up research, and provided a theoretical basis for the production and application of ACE inhibitory peptides in jujube kernel.

Abstract(14) HTML(5) PDF(1)
In this study, sugar-citric acid reaction systems were applied to study the formation of 3-deoxyglucosone(3-DG) and 5-hydroxymethylfurfural(5-HMF). Fructose/sucrose/glucose-citric acid reaction systems were constructed, the effects of sugar type, pH, temperature, types of metal ions and compounds with different valences of sulfur on the formation of 3-DG and 5-HMF were evaluated. The formation kinetics of 3-DG and 5-HMF were analyzed. Results indicated that the three types of sugar had different effects on the formation of 3-DG and 5-HMF. The amounts of 3-DG and 5-HMF produced in fructose and sucrose reaction systems were much higher than those in glucose reaction system. The amounts of 3-DG and 5-HMF in the fructose-citric acid reaction system increased with the decreasing of pH and the increasing of temperature. Ca2+, Mg2+ and Al3+ promoted the formation of 3-DG and 5-HMF. K+ accelerated the formation of 3-DG, but had no significant effect on the formation of 5-HMF(P>0.05). Na2S2O3 and Na2SO3 inhibited 3-DG and 5-HMF formation, while Na2S2O5 had no significant effect on 3-DG formation, but it inhibited the formation of 5-HMF(P<0.05). Na2SO4 promoted 3-DG and 5-HMF formation. The formation kinetics of 3-DG were in accordance with zero-order kinetics model at 70~90 oC while it followed second-order kinetics model at 100 oC. The formation of 5-HMF followed zero-order kinetics model at 70~100 oC.

Abstract(16) HTML(7) PDF(1)
In order to understand the effect of air-borne ultrasound on the catabolic pathway of glucosinolates in broccoli florets during air drying, the drying property, contents of key components (glucosinolates, sulforaphane, ascorbic acid, Fe2+ and phenolic acids), myrosinase activity and antioxidant capacity in vitro in broccoli florets during air drying at 60 oC coupled with air-borne ultrasound (20 kHz, 125.2 and 180.1 W/dm2) were analyzed. The results showed that air-borne sonication accelerated the drying process. The drying times were shortened by 11.1% and 17.8% under sonication at 125.2 and 180.1 W/dm2, respectively. Meanwhile, glucobrassicin content and myrosinase activity increased during ultrasound-intensified air drying. In the end of drying, the contents of glucobrassicin and sulforaphane as well as myrosinase activity in ultrasound-treated samples at 180.1 W/dm2 were 10.7%, 26.0% and 15.2% higher than those in samples dried without sonication, respectively. Reversely, sonicated samples at 180.1 W/dm2 possessed 8.1% less amount of Fe2+ than only air-dried samples after drying. The results implied that ultrasound treatment alleviated the interference of Fe2+ on the enzymatic degradation of glucosinolates, as well as promoted the degradation of glucoraphanin to sulforaphane. Besides, air-borne sonication had no significant influence on the contents of ascorbic acid and phenolic acids, and antioxidant capacity in vitro of broccoli under air drying. This study demonstrated that air-borne ultrasound assisted-air drying could not only speed up the drying process of broccoli florets, but also promote the conversion of glucoraphanin and preserve the bioactive components in certain aspects.

Abstract(19) HTML(6) PDF(3)
Under different storage conditions, rapid viscosity analysis (RVA) properties of indica rice were studied. Samples of Liangyou 234 type indica with 13.5%, 14.5% and 15.5% moisture content were chosen to store under 15, 20, 25, 30 and 35 ℃ for 720 d, respectively. RVA eigenvalues of the corresponding rice samples were measured by rapid viscosity analyzer every 60 days. The results showed that the storage temperature, storage time and moisture content of rice had very significant effect on RVA eigenvalues (P<0.01), in which the temperature affected mainly. With the extension of storage time, the peak viscosity and breakdown viscosity of rice increased at the early stage of the storage, and decreased in the late storage period. Moreover, the peak viscosity of rice and breakdown viscosity at 30 and 35 ℃ temperature in late apparently decreased faster than the others. Final viscosity, consistence viscosity, setback value, pasting temperature increased during the storage period, in which these three eigenvalues under the high temperature (30 and 35 ℃) storage were greater than the normal temperature and quasi-low temperature storage (25, 20 and 15 ℃). It reflected the quality of rice eating during storage period. With the increasing of storage temperature and the prolonging of storage time, the edible quality of rice decreased significantly, and the deterioration accelerated when the storage temperature exceeded 25 ℃. It could be used as reference conditions for the control of rice storage.

Methods: TP with a total sugar content of 92.45% was obtained by alkaline extraction from dried Tremella fuciformis, enzymatic deproteinization and column chromatography separation in turn. The inhibitory effect of TP on pancreatic α-amylase and α-glucosidase was measured by visible spectrophotometry, and its action on the structures of these two enzymes was characterized by fluorescence spectrometry and circular dichroism. Results: TP could inhibit the activities of these two enzymes, and its inhibition on pancreatic α-amylase was significantly higher than that on α-glucosidase, and its half inhibitory concentrations (IC50) on these two enzymes were 7.6835 and 16.9306 mg/mL, respectively. TP inhibited the activity of the enzymes by interacting with them. TP interacted strongly with pancreatic α-amylase. It could statically quench pancreatic α-amylase and change its secondary structure. However, TP interacted weakly with α-glucosidase and could not change its secondary structure. Conclusion: TP inhibited the activity of starch-digestive enzymes by interacting with them.
