Abstract(7) HTML](2) PDF(3)
Probiotics are widely used in the food field because they are beneficial to human health, while they are susceptible to adverse environmental factors such as temperature, oxygen, humidity, pressure, stomach acid and bile salts. In order to maintain high survival rate of probiotics during processing, storage and digestion, different microencapsulation technologies have been used for encapsulation and protection of probiotics. Probiotic microencapsulation technology can improve the resistance of probiotics to adverse environment by creating a physical barrier, and reduce the damage of probiotics in the protective matrix, so that they can reach the target site at full potency. The review article summarizes the source, type and efficacy of probiotics, and mainly summarizes the fundamental principles, advantages and disadvantages of the common probiotic microencapsulation technologies, including extrusion, emulsification, spray drying, freeze drying, spray chilling, complex coacervation, electrospinning, electrospraying and impinging aerosols. Furthermore, an overview of the application advantages and possibilities of probiotic microencapsulation technologies in dairy products, meat products, non-milk beverages and baked products are discussed. Although many studies in vitro digestion, there are still some limitations. As for the existing problems, it is necessary to expand the microencapsulation technologies, carry out in vivo experiments, and establish a systematic database to meet the industrial production needs of probiotic food. It provides theoretical reference for developing new probiotic food.

Aim to evaluate the uncertain factors which may influence the accuracy of detection of pesticide residues in fresh tea leaves, a case study of dichlorvos, dimethoate, malathion and fenitrothion residues in fresh tea leaves was carried out using gas chromatography with external standard method. According to the relevant standard and protocol, a mathematical model has been studied. The uncertainties created by the entire experimental process were evaluated systematically. Three A-type evaluation components, including reproducibility of determination, fitness of standard curve and recovery rate, and four B-type evaluation components, including preparation of standard solution, sample weighing and pretreatment, and the measurement of instrument were investigated. The results revealed that the expanded uncertainty of measured values of dichlorvos, dimethoate, malathion and fenitrothion in the spiked tea leaves were 0.021, 0.073, 0.036 and 0.023 mg/kg (k=2, confidence interval P=95%), while the theoretical content were 0.096, 0.39, 0.19 and 0.19 mg/kg, respectively. Preparation of standard solution and fitness of standard curve contributed to the major effect on uncertainty, which should be paid more attention for future determination. Our study provides a reference for the accuracy assessment of method in detection of four organophosphorus pesticide residues in fresh tea leaves.

A new type of distilled liquor was brewed using Hovenia acerba and sorghum as raw materials, medium-temperature Daqu as starter. Fermentation parameters were optimized by single factors experiment and orthogonal test. The flavor components were detected and analyzed by headspace solid phase microextraction gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (HS-SPME-GC-MS) and odor activity threshold (OAV). And the antioxidant capacity was evaluated. The results showed that the optimal preparation conditions were determined as follows: Addition of Hovenia acerba was 20% and Daqu was 15%, and fermentation time was 35 d. Under the optimized conditions, the sensory score of 93.91, the product yield of 40.21%. A total of 48 flavor substances were identified in the liquor prepared under the optimized conditions, of which 20 were OAV>1. Ethyl butyrate, ethyl octanate, ethyl hexanoate ethyl and guaiacol were considered as the characteristic flavor substances of the Hovenia acerba-sorghum co-fermented distilled liquor. Compared with pure sorghum distilled liquor, phenylethanol, 2,3-butanadiol, 9-ethyl decanolate, 10-bromodecanoic acid ethyl ester and other volatile components were special in the Hovenia acerba-sorghum co-fermented distilled liquor. In addition, the total phenol content, DPPH and ABTS free radical scavenging ability, and total reducing power of the Hovenia acerba-sorghum co-fermented distilled liquor were higher than the pure sorghum distilled liquor. This study provides a scientific reference for the industrial production of liquor and a new idea for the development of new health distilled spirits.

Abstract(21) HTML](5) PDF(1)
In this research, the compositional changes of key aroma compounds of ‘Guire No. 82’ mangoes before and after dehydration at green, semi-ripe and fully ripe stages were assessed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). The results revealed that the key aroma compounds of fresh fruit in ‘Guire No. 82’, such as β-pinene, 2-carene, β-myrcene, 3-hexene-1-alcohol, etc., possessed the highest content in the green ripening stage, which also suffer a great loss accompanying with the processing, and even not at all for decyl aldehyde. Meanwhile, the content of β-pinene and β-myrcene gradually decreased with the mango ripening, but the content of ethyl caproate and ethyl butyrate increased and reached the middle value at the half-ripe stage, and its content remained the highest after processing. Additionally, the content of ethyl hexanoate, ethyl butyrate and phenethyl alcohol reached the peak value at the full ripening stage, however, the loss of its content after processing was also very obvious, especially for ethyl hexanoate. O-cymene was only detected at the half-ripening stage, which remained after processing. The content of β-ionone was the highest in the half-ripening stage and remained at the highest level after processing. From the analysis of main aroma components, the 14 main aroma components of half-ripe mango did not disappear after processing, and the retention rate of main aroma components (original fruit flavor) reached 100%. Therefore, compared with other ripening stages, the key aroma compounds of mangoes processed into original dried fruit at the half-ripening stage of ‘Guire No. 82’ were better than those of the other two stages.

A gas chromatography method was established to simultaneously detect 26 kinds of organophosphorus pesticide residuesin wheat germ samples, such as dichlorvos, ethoprophos, and cadusafos. By optimizing the pretreating procedures of samples and test conditions of gas chromatography, the target organophosphorus pesticide residues were separated by DB-17 capillary column and temperature programming, and corresponding amounts were detected using flame photometric detector (FPD). The results showed that the concentrations of all organophosphorus pesticide residues were linearly related to their peak areas with correlation coefficients of over 0.999 in the concentration 0.010~1.0 μg/mL, and the minimum quantitative concentrations of all organophosphorus pesticide residues were between 0.005 mg/kg and 0.010 mg/kg, respectively. The recoveries of spiked samples at 3 levels ranged from 80.61% to 116.19% with relative standard deviations between 0.62%~6.83%. This method had been successfully applied in qualitative screening and quantitative detection of 26 kinds of organophosphorus pesticide residues in wheat germ samples. Alathion, chlorpyrifos-methyl and fenitrothion were detected in actual samples, and the contents of positive organophosphorus pesticides were 0.074±0.005, 0.062±0.004, 0.043±0.002 mg/kg.

Objective: To determine the content of 16 phenolic compounds in 24 batches of Prunella vulgaris by liquid chromatography- tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) and to investigate the correlation between phenolic compounds and antioxidant activity by grey relational analysis (GRA) and partial least squares regression (PLSR) analysis. Methods: The sample was extracted with 80% methanol by the ultrasonic extraction. A method for the determination of 16 phenolic compounds in Prunella vulgaris was established by LC-MS/MS. The Waters ACQUITY UPLC BEH C18 column (2.1 mm×100 mm, 1.7 μm) was selected as the stationary phase. The gradient elution was performed with the mobile phase of 0.1% formic acid-acetonitrile at the flow rate of 0.4 mL/min. The eluted compounds were detected in the negative ion mode with multiple reaction monitoring technology. The antioxidant activities were evaluated by DPPH free radical scavenging capacity, ABTS free radical scavenging capacity and ferric reducing antioxidant power. Results: There were significant linear relationship of 16 phenolic compounds in the range of their concentration with the correlation coefficient (r) greater than 0.99. The precision, repeatability, stability and recovery were good. In vitro antioxidant experiments showed that Prunella vulgaris had strong ability to scavenge ABTS, DPPH free radicals and ferric reduction. The results of GRA and PLSR indicated that rosmarinic acid, caffeic acid, rutin, hyperoside and isoquercitrin were the primary compounds contributing to the antioxidant capacity. Conclusion: A LC-MS/MS method for simultaneous determination of 16 phenolic compounds in Prunella vulgaris was established and the primary antioxidant active components were further investigated by correlation analysis, so as to provide scientific basis for quality control, development and utilization of Prunella vulgaris.

Abstract(13) HTML](4) PDF(4)
By using headspace-solid phase microextraction-gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (HS-SPME-GC-MS), the volatile flavor compounds were determined for 15 Zaobaijian black tea samples harvested in spring, summer and autumn in Junlian, Sichuan Province. Subsequently, a discriminant model partial least square-discriminant analysis (PLS-DA) was used and a hierarchical cluster analysis of the dendroid heat map was drawn to determine the distribution of key aroma components from different harvest seasons. Results showed that the alcohol content (113.05 μg/g) and esters (34.91 μg/g) in the spring samples were significantly higher than those from the summer and autumn samples, while the aldehydes (23.86 μg/g) were significantly lower than those in the summer and autumn samples. The established PLS-DA model could distinguish between tea samples harvested in spring and those harvested in summer and autumn. Moreover, the heat map cluster analysis showed that hyacinthin, nerol and (Z)-geraniol were the key aroma component that distinguished the spring tea samples from the summer and autumn tea samples. Cis-linalool oxide and trans-linalool oxide (furanoid) were the key aroma components that distinguished the summer tea samples from autumn tea samples. This study provides basic research data for analyzing the aroma components of Zaobaijian black tea from different seasons and lays a foundation for further exploration into the key aroma formation mechanism of Junlian Zaobaijian black tea.

To improve the storage stability and bioavailability of traditional yak ghee, sodium alginate and CaCl2 were used as composite wall materials in this experiment, and yak ghee microcapsules were prepared using the sharp hole method. The optimal ghee microcapsule process parameters were determined using single factor experiment and orthogonal test with embedding rate as an index. Differential scanning calorimeter (DSC), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), scanning electron microscope (SEM), and laser particle size analyzer were used to determine the physicochemical properties of ghee microcapsules. Finally, the characteristics of ghee microcapsule release and storage stability in gastroenteric fluid were investigated. The results showed that when the sodium alginate concentration was 1.5%, the CaCl2 concentration was 2.5%, the core to wall mass ratio was 1.5:1, the emulsification temperature was 50 °C, and the curing time was 30 minutes, the maximum encapsulation rate of microcapsules was 89.41%. The water content, solubility, angle of repose and average particle size of the microcapsules were 5.25%, 57.22%, 20.6° and 929.773 µm, respectively. After microencapsulation, thermal stability of ghee improved. In the release test, microcapsules were released at rates of 11.52% and 96.44% in stomach and intestinal liquids. Microcapsules had a substantially longer shelf life than yak ghee.

In this study, the heat-moisture treatment was used to decrease the glycemic index (GI) value of glutinous rice flour, and then relevant indexes were compared with those of other treatments. Based on the influence of moisture content, temperature and treatment time on amylose content and digestion characteristics of glutinous rice flour, the single factor ranges were determined, and then the Box-Behnken design was used to optimize the heat-moisture treatment process with amylose content (which is significantly negative correlation with GI value) as a crucial index. Finally, the in vitro digestion characteristics and GI value of glutinous rice flour obtained by optimal heat-moisture treatment process (HMT), by ordinary process (WR), and only by enzymatic hydrolysis process (ER) respectively were compared to investigate the influence on GI value and other relevant indexes. The optimum heat-moisture conditions were: The treatment time was 2.3 h, the temperature was 116 ℃, and the moisture content was 20%. Under the optimum heat-moisture treatment conditions, the amylose content was 3.62%±0.01%, and it was confirmed that the average measured value was consistent with the theoretical value (3.62%), indicating that the model could be used to optimize the heat-moisture treatment process of glutinous rice flour. Compared with WR, the content of rapidly digestible starch and hydrolysis index were decreased significantly, and the contents of slow digestible starch and resistant starch were increased significantly, and GI value decreased by 30.1% in HMT. Taken altogether, the glutinous rice flour prepared by this heat-moisture treatment method had a relatively low GI value, which could provide experimental reference for the further development of low GI glutinous rice flour.

Abstract(13) HTML](2) PDF(6)
In this study, silver carp scale antifreeze peptides (ScAFPs) were prepared by enzymatic hydrolysis. Taking the freeze-thawing survival rate of Streptococcus thermophilus as the main index and the degree of hydrolysis as the auxiliary index, the optimal enzymolysis preparation process of ScAFPs was obtained through single factor and response surface optimization. At the same time, the basic properties of ScAFPs and their influence on the gel stability of surimi were studied. The results showed that the selected enzyme preparation was trypsin, substrate concentration of 5.0%, enzyme dosage of 3.8%, enzymolysis temperature of 37 ºC, enzymolysis time of 3.5 h. Under these conditions, the frozen survival rate of ScAFPs against Streptococcus thermophilus was (82.19±1.03) % and the degree of hydrolysis was (7.54±0.43) %. The relative molecular weight of ScAFPs was mainly in the range of 180~3000 Da, and its isoelectric point was around 4.2. Moreover, ScAFPs had strong hydrophilicity and good thermal stability, which could effectively reduce the ice crystal content in the system. The effect of ScAFPs on gel properties of freezing-thawing surimi showed that after five freezing-thawing cycles, the decrease of gel whiteness, hardness, chewiness and gel strength of surimi treated by ScAFPs was significantly (P<0.05) lower than that of surimi without cryoprotecter. When the addition of ScAFPs exceeded 2%, the freeze-thaw protection effect of ScAFPs on surimi was better than that of commercial antifreeze agents (4% sucrose and 4% sorbitol mixture). This study lays a theoretical foundation for the high-value utilization of silver carp scales and the application of ScAFPs as a new type of cryoprotectant in frozen surimi and its gel products.

Abstract(16) HTML(8) PDF(2)
In order to achieve accurate identification of rice varieties, a rice variety identification method based on terahertz time-domain spectroscopy (THz-TDS) technology was proposed. To select the terahertz band by Interval partial least square (iPLS) and standard deviation (SD), which determined the absorption spectrum data of the 0.53~1.21 THz band as the input data of the classification model. Then to use the decision tree (DT) identified absorption spectra of four kinds of rice and the model parameters was obtained by combining with the grid search algorithm. In order to increase the experimental contrast, logistic regression models and support vector machine models were used separately for comparative experiments, and the model classification accuracy was 80.75% and 88.75%, respectively. Experimental results showed that the terahertz time-domain spectroscopy technology combined with SD, iPLS and DT methods can realize the accurate identification of rice varieties with an accuracy rate of up to 95%, providing a new identification method for the identification of agricultural varieties.

In this study, using angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitory peptides PHP1 and PHP2 as the parent peptides, the hydrophobicity and electrical properties of target polypeptides were altered by substituting amino acid residues. In addition, the potential bioactivity of these polypeptides was assessed using bioinformatics tools. Following this analysis, 19 polypeptide analogues were designed and synthesized using solid-phase synthesis, and their bioactivities were detected in vitro. The results revealed that the polypeptide analogues showed relatively high ACE inhibitory activities, PHP1A-6 (IC50=3.87 μmol/L), PHP2A-3 (IC50=3.33 μmol/L), PHP2A-4 (IC50=2.86 μmol/L), and PHP2A-7 (IC50=4.58 μmol/L) exhibited the highest ACE inhibitory activity levels, significantly higher than the parent peptides (P<0.05). PHP1A-3, PHP1A-4, PHP1A-7, PHP2A-1 and PHP2A-10 displayed equal levels of inhibitory activity in comparison to the parent peptides (IC50<10 μmol/L). Compared with the parent peptides, the α-glucosidase inhibitory activity levels demonstrated by most of the polypeptide analogues were significantly enhanced, PHP1A-3 (IC50=3.09 μmol/L), PHP1A-7 (IC50=9.51 μmol/L), PHP2A-6 (IC50=5.58 μmol/L), PHP2A-11 (IC50=2.35 μmol/L), and PHP2A-12 (IC50=3.98 μmol/L) exhibited the highest activities. Additionally, PHP1A-3 and PHP1A-7 displayed relatively strong inhibitory activity against both ACE and α-glucosidase. At concentrations of 1 mg/mL, the polypeptides containing Cys displayed an ABTS+· scavenging rate of higher than 85%, demonstrating a potential antioxidant activity. The structure-activity relationship between the ACE inhibitory peptides and ACE were explored using molecular docking. The results reflected that inhibitory peptides produced multiple stable hydrogen bonds, hydrophobic interactions, π-π stacking interactions, and salt bridges with ACE amino acid residues, thereby improving the inhibitory effects exerted on ACE.

Abstract(11) HTML(4) PDF(4)
The changes of structure and function of pork myofibrillar protein induced by oxidation and its ability to bind flavor substances under different ionic conditions were studied. 2-methyl-butanal, 3-methyl-butanal, hexanal, octanal and nonanal were selected as volatile compounds in the experiment. The ability of myofibrillar protein to bind volatile compounds was observed by headspace combined gas chromatography. The results confirmed that the secondary structure and function of oxidized myofibrillar protein changed. Oxidized myofibrillar protein could promote the release of 2-methyl-butanal and nonanal. Moreover, the effect of oxidized myofibrillar protein on 3-methyl-butanal, hexanal and octanal was dependent on AAPH concentration. The addition of Na+ promoted the release of hexanal, while the addition of Na+, K+, Ca2+ and Mg2+ promoted the absorption of 2-methyl-butanal, 3-methyl-butanal, octanal and nonal. Consequently, during the processing and storage of meat and meat products, oxidation of meat protein could change its structure and function, and then affect the ability of protein to combine flavor substances. In addition, sodium chloride is partially replaced by other salts in meat products, resulting in changes in the ionic environment of proteins, resulting in changes in the ability of proteins to combine flavor substances, thus changing the flavor of meat products.

Carotenoids have numerous biological activities which are beneficial for human health, and can be spontaneously aggregated to different aggregates in certain conditions. In this paper, the effects of different proportions of hydrated organic solutions and different adding sequences on the types of carotenoids aggregates (H aggregates, M monomer and J aggregates), formation conditions and stability of three carotenoids (astaxanthin, lutein and β-carotene) were investigated. The astaxanthin acetone solution, lutein ethanol solution and β-carotene acetone solution were mixed in two different dropping sequences: Water into organic and organic into water, according to the proportion of organic solvents in the total volume from 10% to 90%, and the resulting sample was observed and analyzed by the UV-vis absorption spectrum. These results showed that when the astaxanthin, lutein and β-carotene formed H aggregates the volume ratios of organic solvents were 10%~20%, 10%~50% and 10%~40%, respectively. Astaxanthin formed J aggregates at 30% and β-carotene formed J aggregates at 50%~70%, respectively. Lutein was a lutein monomer when organic solvent takes up 60%~90% of the total volume. The conditions for the formation of aggregates were similar to those of organic water in addition sequence. However, it was found that the movement of absorption peak in UV-vis spectrum was more obvious under the sequence of organic water addition. After the samples were placed at room temperature (25 ℃) for 24 h and 48 h, the stability of aggregates was investigated. The H aggregates of lutein remains unchanged, however the H aggregates of astaxanthin and β-carotene gradually transformed into J aggregates. This study provides data support for the formation conditions and stability of carotenoid aggregates, thus offering theoretical basis for the application of carotenoids and their aggregates in food, medicine, cosmetics and other fields.

To improve the quality of mango puree, this study adopted three non-thermal processing methods of ultra-high pressure, irradiation and low-temperature plasma to treat mango puree and analyzed and compared the sterilization effects of different methods. The effect of the optimum method (ultrahigh pressure) on the flavor, color, content of soluble solids and storage stability of mango puree was further studied. The results showed that both ultrahigh pressure (≥200 MPa) and irradiation (≥3 kGy) had good bactericidal effect on mango puree, and the total number of bacteria in mango puree ≤2 lg(CFU/g), reached the commercial sterile standard. However, the effect of low temperature plasma treatment was not ideal. When the treatment time was less than 6 min, the total number of bacteria in fruit puree did not reach the commercial sterile standard. The results showed that the taste of mango puree was similar to that of the control sample. The storage life of mango puree treated with pressure greater than 500 MPa was stable, especially the storage life of samples treated with 600 MPa could reach at least 9 months. The results showed that the high pressure could not only killed the harmful microorganisms in mango puree, but also improved the stability of mango puree, and maintained the original quality of mango puree to the maximum extent. This study provided some theoretical basis and method guidance for the application of ultrahigh pressure technology in food processing.

This research was to obtain stable myofibrillar protein emulsion. Myofibrillar protein was extracted from frozen silver carp surimi, and the effects of heat treatment (85 ℃ for 10 min) and protein concentrations (5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 mg/mL) on the aggregation ratio, particle size, zeta-potential and microstructure of myofibrillar protein and structure, apparent viscosity and color of soybean oil-myofibrillar protein emulsion were investigated. The results showed that heat treatment led to the increase of particle size and decrease of apparent viscosity of myofibrillar protein, namely protein aggregation. While emulsion prepared with thermal treated myofibrillar protein displayed high L* and b* value and low hydrophobicity. With the increase of myofibrillar protein concentration, the apparent viscosity increased, and the zeta-potential fluctuate increased, no matter the myofibrillar protein solution subjected to heat treatment or not. The minimum particle size of un-heated and heated myofibrillar protein solution was obtained when the protein concentration was 10 and 25 mg/mL, respectively. Besides, the optical microscopy observed that the number of oil droplets involved in emulsification gradually increased, the particle size of oil droplets gradually decreased, the coalescence among oil droplets gradually reduced, when the concentration of myofibrillar protein increased. Therefore, when the protein concentration was in the range of 10~20 mg/mL and the oil ratio was 0.6, the emulsion prepared with thermal treated myofibrillar protein showed high stability and expressed as small and dispersed emulsion droplets and low apparent viscosity. This study is of great significance for the development of stable myofibrillar protein emulsion.

Abstract(10) HTML(9) PDF(1)
Artemisia sphaerocephala Krasch gum (ASKG) can be carboxymethylated and greasy-based emulsified to improve its water solubility and emulsifying property, while the effect of modified ASKG on wheat flour processing as a gluten enhancer remains largely unknown. In this study, we investigated the gluten-increasing effect of ASKG in the formation of wheat flour dough and the production of greasy dough through its carboxymethylation and emulsification modification. The results showed that the carboxymethylation could reduce the optimum addition amount of ASKG from 1.0% to 0.4% in wheat flour. Carboxymethyl ASKG (C-ASKG) increased the wet gluten content, gluten index, water absorption, dough development time, dough stability time, and reduced the weakening degree. However, C-ASKG did not show better reinforcement in greasy dough than ASKG. In comparison, ASKG emulsified (E-ASKG) by wheat germ oil and palm stearin fat was shown to be more suitable for greasy dough modulation. The addition of 1.0% of ASKG and 5% of oil or fat in flour by emulsification manner reduced the difference between the oil and fat during the formation of gluten and improve the evaluation indexes of dough texture. This study demonstrated that carboxymethylation could reduce the dosage of ASKG used in wheat flour as a gluten enhancer, while emulsive ASKG was suitable for the gluten reinforcement of water-oiled dough.

The isolation and purification, structure characterization and antioxidant activity of Zizyphus jujuba cv. Junzao polysaccharides were studied. The crude polysaccharide HZPC was extracted from Zizyphus jujuba cv. Junzao by water extraction and ethanol precipitation, and then separated and purified by DEAE-52 anionic chromatography column and Sephadex G-100 dexan gel column. The molecular weight and monosaccharide composition of HZPC-2 were determined by high performance gel chromatography (HPGPC) and ion chromatography (IC), and the structural characteristics of HZPC-2 were studied by ULTRAVIOLET spectrum, infrared spectrum and scanning electron microscope. Finally, the antioxidant activities of HZPC-2 were evaluated. The results showed that HZPC-2 polysaccharide was a neutral polysaccharide with α-glucopyranoside framework (JDP-N), its molecular weight was 3.25×104 Da. It was composed of rhamnose (Rha), arabinose (Ara), galactose (Gal), glucose (Glc), xylose (Xyl), mannose (Man) and galacturonic acid (GalA). The mole ratio was 0.05:0.34:0.29:0.15:0.08:0.02:0.06. Scanning electron microscopy showed that the surface of HZPC-2 was furry-shaped and extended in all directions, and the interior of HZPC-2 was embedded with porous structures. In vitro antioxidant tests showed that HZPC-2 had the strongest scavenging activity against DPPH radical, followed by hydroxyl radical, and the weakest scavenging activity against ABTS radical. It can be used as a potential antioxidant and provide a basis for the development of food with the function of Zizyphus jujuba cv. Junzao polysaccharides.

Abstract(68) HTML(19) PDF(22)
In order to study the interaction between betanin and whey protein isolate (WPI) and the effect of whey protein isolate on the thermal stability of betanin, WPI-Betanin complex was constructed by self-assembly method. UV-vis spectroscopy was used to verify the formation of complex. The mechanism of complex formation and the changes of protein structure were investigated by fluorescence spectroscopy and circular dichroism, and the complex was visualized by molecular simulation technology. The results showed that betanin and whey protein isolate formed a complex mainly through van der Waals force and hydrogen bond, and the number of binding sites was about 1. The formation of the complex resulted in increased turbidity and decreased surface hydrophobicity of the protein, and the quenching mechanism was static, with a quenching constant of 1.78×103 L/mol at room temperature. The interaction changed secondary structure contents and the microenvironment of tryptophan and tyrosine in whey protein isolate. Moreover, the thermal stability of betanin was improved by WPI. The retention rate of betanin increased from 6.17% to 27.26% after heating at 80 ℃ for 1 h. This study provides a theoretical basis for the application and development of functional protein pigment complex and the color protection of betanin.

Abstract(62) HTML(14) PDF(20)
Objective: By comparing and analyzing the quality of agate red cherries in different regions of Guizhou Province, the quality differences of these cherries in different areas could be obtained. Methods: The fresh fruits of agate red cherries from Kaiyang, Nayong and Zhijin were picked at the same maturity period, then the fruit weight, soluble solids, total flavonoids, polyphenol and related enzyme activities were measured. Results: From the appearance of the fruit, there was no significant difference in the size of the cherry fruit in the three regions, but the color of the cherry fruit in Nayong was relatively red. In terms of texture, the hardness of cherry fruit in Nayong area was 861.14 g, which was 1.82 times and 1.5 times of Zhijin and Kaiyang respectively. From the nutritional value, the highest free amino acid content of cherry fruit in Zhijin was 46.01 mg∙100 g−1. For the determination of metal ions, the selenium content in Kaiyang area was 153.51 μg/g, which was 11 times of Nayong and 1.27 times of Zhijin. From different aspects, the cherry fruits in the three regions had their own advantages, and the appearance of cherry fruits in Nayong region was relatively good, while the free amino acid and metal ion content of cherry fruits in Zhijin and Kaiyang areas were relatively high. This may be due to the differences in geographical location, climatic conditions and other factors, resulting in certain differences in nutritional value and fruit shape of cherry fruits in the three regions.

Abstract(17) HTML(14) PDF(5)
The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of different salting methods (wet salting, dry salting, ultrasonic assisted wet salting) on quality traits (color, texture, water retention capacity), histomorphology and protein structure of cooked pork steaks. Longissimus thoracis et lumborum (LTL) muscles of pork were selected as experimental material, and the meat samples were salted by different methods and then cooked. Meat quality, water distribution, histomorphology, protein surface hydrophobicity and protein secondary structure of cooked meat were determined. The results showed that different salting methods had significant influences on the quality traits of cooked pork steaks. In comparison with the other two salting methods, the sample salted by ultrasonic had the lowest cooking loss, the highest redness value, and the highest viscosity and tenderness. The results of water distribution showed that the longitudinal (T1) and transverse (T2) relaxation intensity were the highest in samples of ultrasonic assisted salting. Meanwhile, the transverse relaxation time was the longest in cooked samples of ultrasonic-assisted salting, the proportion of immobilized water was the highest, and the proportion of free water was the lowest. Ultrasonic assisted salting increased muscle fiber swelling, and individual myofibers in the salted tissue could be discerned, perhaps due to the degradation of connective tissue during salting. Additionally, the cooked meat samples of ultrasonic assisted salting had the strongest protein hydrophobicity ability. Protein secondary structure analyses showed that the meat samples in ultrasonic assisted salting group exhibited the lowest content of α-helix and β-turn, and the highest content of β-sheet and random coil, indicating the highest degree of protein unfolding. Moreover, protein structural changes in cooked meat were significantly correlated with meat quality traits.

Abstract(17) HTML(3) PDF(2)
The objective of this study was to investigate the impacts of four thermal treatments on the stability of astaxanthin-enriched eggs (hot spring, soft-boiled, hard-boiled and pan-fried eggs). And a simulated gastrointestinal tract model was designed to evaluate the lipid and protein digestibility, molecular weight distribution of protein, biostability and bioaccessibility of astaxanthin. Results showed that thermal treatment led to the degradation of astaxanthin. Among these, soft-boiled had the highest retention ratio, 97.21%. Compared with raw eggs, boiled eggs had higher lipid and protein digestibility. Soft-boiled and hot spring eggs exhibited the highest digestibility, however, a lower digestibility was observed on the pan-fried eggs. These results were confirmed by electrophoresis analysis that the fractions with high molecular weight in the soft-boiled and hot spring eggs disappeared. There was no significant difference on the biostability of eggs astaxanthin under different thermal treatment, which was 48.76%~49.47%, while boiling eggs could effectively improve the bioaccessibility as compared with raw eggs. The soft-boiled and hot spring eggs exhibited relatively higher bioaccessibility, 48.76% and 47.71%, respectively. These results suggested that soft-boiled astaxanthin-enriched eggs could be used as a promising approach for natural astaxanthin supplementation.

In order to investigate the effects of fermentation with single and co-culture of Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus on the quality of yogurt, the fermentation characteristics, sensory features, rheology and texture of yogurt produced by the above two fermentation approaches were tested. The results showed that the curdling time of co-culture fermented yogurt was 8 h, which was shorter than that of single-strain fermented yogurt, and reached the end point of fermentation at 70 °T earlier. Sensory evaluation evaluated that the scores of co-culture fermentation yogurt were higher than that of single culture yogurt. Moreover, the ratio of Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus was 3:7 with the highest score. The measurement results of rheological properties showed that the apparent viscosity of co-culture fermented yogurt was 0.4~0.5 Pa·s lower than that of single-bacteria fermented yogurt of 1.6~1.9 Pa·s. As for texture analysis, the hardness, viscosity and absolute value of cohesiveness of co-culture fermented yogurt were significantly lower than that of single culture yogurt (P<0.05). The data of electronic nose showed that the odor of co-culture fermented yogurt was stronger than that of single bacteria fermented yogurt. In addition, electronic tongue test showed that the co-culture fermented yogurt exhibited more balanced in terms of different tastes. Electronic nose and electronic tongue could effectively distinguish the difference between single and co-culture fermented yogurt through principal component analysis. Based on the above results, the taste and flavor of co-culture fermented yogurt are better than that of single bacteria fermented ones.

In order to explore the correlation between physicochemical indexes, volatile flavor and microbial diversity during the fermentation of red millet Huangjiu, high throughput sequencing of microorganisms, physicochemical index detection and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry were used and SPSS software was applied for correlation analysis. The results showed that during the progress of fermentation, the content of reducing sugar decreased rapidly at first and then became stabilized gradually, while the trend of alcohol content was opposite; the content of total acid increased rapidly in the early stage, then decreased and finally increased again, while the pH value stayed at a same level; the alteration of amino acid nitrogen level was volatility rised in the beginning and then increased fast, while soluble solids content first declined quickly and then kept stabilized. A total of 14 bacterial phyla and 228 bacterial genera, 7 fungal phyla and 108 fungal genera were detected in 10 stages (1~7, 10, 20, 30 days) during fermentation. At the genus level, the bacterial community could be clustered in 3 types, and the fungal community could be clustered in 5 types. Bacteria genus levels were positively correlated with total acid (P<0.05) while negatively correlated with reducing sugar (P<0.05), and fungi genus levels were positively correlated with amino nitrogen (P<0.05). 2,3-Butanediol and ethyl lactate were positively correlated with most of the bacteria (P<0.05). Klebsiella was negatively correlated with ethyl octanoate (P<0.05), while Lactococcus was negatively correlated with ethanol, 2-butanol, isobutanol, phenylethanol and ethyl palmitate (P<0.05). Monascus was significantly negatively correlated with ethyl lactate (P<0.05), while Apiotrichum was negatively correlated with 2-butanol, isobutanol and isoamyl alcohol (P<0.05). Our results indicated that the microbial diversity significantly changed during the fermentation of red millet Huangjiu, which had a certain correlation with the physicochemical indicators and flavor variations. These findings provided a theoretical reference for the subsequent study on quality improvement and deve-lopment of red millet Huangjiu.

In present study, Rhizopus chinensis 12 mixed fermentation with Bacillus sp. DU-106 were performed to improve the quality and flavor of Semen Sojae Praeparatum (SSP). The levels of physicochemical characteristics, bioactive compounds, free amino acids, and volatile components during the mixed fermentation process were monitored. Compared to SSP fermented only with R. chinensis 12, the levels of physicochemical characteristics were not obviously changed after mixed fermentation. However, thrombolytic enzyme activity and soy isoflavone content after mixed fermentation were significantly higher when compared to those of SSP fermented only with R. chinensis 12, and reached to 3927.84 IU/g and 3.91 mg/g, respectively. The amount of bitter amino acids and umami amino acids after mixed fermentation slightly lower than those of SSP fermented only with R. chinensis 12. The contents of flavor composition were considerably altered after mixed fermentation, of which, the pyrazine prevailed in SSP fermented only with R. chinensis 12, while, alkane predominated in SSP after mixed fermentation. Overall, the Rhizopus chinensis 12 mixed fermentation with Bacillus sp. DU-106 contributed to improve the thrombolytic activity, free amino acid content, and flavors of SSP.

Powdered infant formula (PIF) is the main source of Cronobacter spp. contamination, among which the addition of raw and auxiliary materials and the processing environment are the most important routes of transmission. In order to effectively prevent and control Cronobacter spp. to ensure the safety of dairy products, eight strains of Cronobacter spp. isolated from PIF and its processing environment were used as the research objects. Their heat resistance, acid and alkali resistance, dryness resistance and permeability resistance were studied, and the differences of environmental resistance of different strains were analyzed. The results showed that Cronobacter spp. had different heat resistance. The strains isolated from the end products had relatively stronger heat resistance. Cronobacter spp. generally had the characteristics of acid resistance but not alkali resistance. Under the acidic conditions at pH1.5, all strains could still survive being treated for 30 s. Cronobacter spp. had strong resistance to desiccation. The bacterial count of all strains decreased from an initial concentration of 108 CFU/mL to 105 CFU/mL over the course of the 7-month test at room temperature with a relative air humidity of 20.7%. The slow decreasing trend indicated that Cronobacter spp. had a strong ability to resist dry environment. Cronobacter spp. had a strong resistance to osmosis. We found that all strains grew slowly when the concentration of NaCl was over 8% and the tolerance of Cronobacter spp. to sorbitol was stronger than that to NaCl under isotonic conditions.

Abstract(6) HTML(2) PDF(3)
In order to explore the types of dominant spoilage biogenic amine-producing bacteria in skipjack tuna, three dominant bacteria were screened from refrigerated skipjack tuna. The strains were identified by 16S rDNA molecular identification technology, which were Pseudomonas fluorescens, Citrobacter freundii and Aeromonas hydrophila. The dominant spoilage biogenic amine-producing bacteria were inoculated onto sterile fish and stored at 4 ℃. By measuring the total number of colonies and the value of volatile base nitrogen (TVB-N), we used the yield factor (YTVB-N/CFU) of spoilage metabolites to analyze the spoilage ability of the three dominant spoilage biogenic amine-producing bacteria. The production ability of bacteria was compared by detecting the content of biogenic amines in the samples. The results showed that the total number of colonies in the groups inoculated with P. fluorescens, C. freundii and A. hydrophila were 8.36, 8.27 and 8.13 lg CFU/g at the end of storage, respectively. The TVB-N values reached 28.21, 30.30 and 31.29 mg/100 g, respectively. The spoilage ability of the three dominant spoilage amine-producing bacteria were A. hydrophila>C. freundii>P. fluorescence. On the 8th day of storage, the histamine contents of the P. fluorescens, C. freundii and A. hydrophila groups reached 196.23, 83.43 and 261.22 mg/kg, respectively. The total biogenic amine contents of the three groups of samples at the end of storage were A. hydrophila>P. fluorescens>C. freundii. The combined comparison concluded that A. hydrophila had the highest spoilage biogenic amine-producing ability in skipjack tuna. This study increased the knowledge and provided a partial theoretical basis for the dominant spoilage biogenic amine producing species in refrigerated skipjack tuna.

Abstract(38) HTML(9) PDF(9)
To study the extraction rate of soluble dietary fiber (soluble dietary fiber, SDF) contained in the artichoke after ultrafine crushing and high pressure homogenization composite modification, single factor experiment was conducted to investigate the homogenization temperature, homogenization pressure and material concentration on artichoke SDF yield. The response surface method was used to optimize the artichoke SDF extraction process with three factors and three levels. The model between artichoke SDF extraction conditions and yield was established and analyzed to obtain the optimal process parameters and improve the artichoke SDF yield. The results showed that after ultrafine crushing and high pressure homogenization compound modification, the yield of artichoke SDF was significantly affected by the compound modification. The best process for extracting artichoke SDF was a homogenization temperature of 41 ℃ and a homo-genization pressure of 97 MPa, material concentration 2.5%.

In order to optimize the decolorization process of Antarctic krill peptides and improve the product quality, activated carbon adsorption method was used to remove the pigment from the Antarctic krill peptides solution. Taking the decolorization rate and protein retention rate as the evaluation indexes, the influence of four independent variables including dosage of activated carbon, pH, decolorization temperature and decolorization time on the decolorization effect were investigated respectively. On the basis of single factor experiment, three independent variables including dosage of activated carbon, pH and decolorization time were optimized by the response surface methodology under the decolorization temperature of 50 ℃. Results showed that powdered activated carbon was more suitable for the removal of pigment from Antarctic krill peptides when compared with granular activated carbon, and the optimal conditions determined by response surface methodology were as follows: dosage of activated carbon 4.0%, pH1.5 and decolorization time 1.0 h. Under the optimal conditions, the decolorization rate was 82.19%±0.20% and the protein retention rate was 90.93%±2.28%. The decolorization treatment had no obvious effects on the proportion of essential amino acids and nonessential amino acids in the amino acid compositions as well as the molecular weight distribution of Antarctic krill peptides.

To analyze systematically the effects of marinated in eggs on edible quality of different meats during cooking of several traditional Chinese dishes, marinated in whole egg or egg white, and different egg white addition were chosen to analyze the effects on the edible quality of pork patties, beef patties, and lamb patties. The results showed that, at the addition of 10% and marinated for 30 min, when marinated in egg white, the water content of the pork patties and lamb patties were significantly increased (P<0.05), while the cooking loss, shear forces and hardness values were significantly reduced (P<0.05), indicated that the edible quality of the two meat loaves were effectively improved. However, marinated in whole egg was more suitable for the beef patties, which to a certain extent, improved its edible quality. The effects of different egg white additions on edible qualities of three meat loaves were different. When marinated for 30 min, 10% of egg white addition was suitable for the pork patties and lamb patties, while 5% was more suitable for beef patties. Under these conditions, the water holding capacity of the meat loaves was excellent, and the tenderness, color, and texture characteristics were preferred, which were suitable for promotion to use as a best addition condition for egg white marinating in the daily cooking process. The present study provides the theoretical support for the egg marinating conditions before cooking in traditional Chinese meat dishes.

Abstract(24) HTML(5) PDF(10)
To investigate the cryoprotective effect of tara gum on myofibrillar proteins, the influences of tara gum on the freezing curve of myofibrillar proteins of grass carp were studied using a commercial cryoprotectant (4% sucrose+4% sorbitol) as a control in this study. The effects of tara gum on the freezing stability of myofibrillar proteins during frozen storage (0~28 days) were investigated by assessing Ca2+-ATPase activity, sulfhydryl content, surface hydrophobicity, endogenous fluorescence spectra and water mobility. The results showed that the freezing temperature of myofibrillar proteins solution added with 1% tara gum and commercial cryoprotectant were −8.3 ℃ and −7.3 ℃, respectively, which were significantly lower than that of the control (−5.5 ℃). After 28 d of frozen storage, the Ca2+-ATPase activity, total sulfhydryl content, and active sulfhydryl content of myofibrillar proteins with the addition of 1% tara gum and commercial cryoprotectant decreased by 45.69% and 45.17%, 24.49% and 42.28%, 25.13% and 39.79%, and the surface hydrophobicity increased by 176.00% and 122.23%, respectively. The changes were significantly lower than those of the blank control. Additionally, the results of LF-NMR showed that the addition of 1% gum and commercial cryoprotectant significantly inhibited the increase of water mobility of myofibrillar protein solution after thawing. Therefore, the 1% tara gum could enhance the stability of myofibrillar proteins of grass carp during frozen storage.

Abstract(28) HTML(6) PDF(11)
Objective: To investigate the anti-glioma effect and mechanism of AND on human glioma U251 cells via network pharmacology, bioinformatics and in vitro experiments. Methods: Network pharmacology was used to predict glioma-related targets based on the structure of AND. The hub genes were selected by bioinformatics, analyzed by gene ontology (GO) molecular function and kyoto encyclopedia of genes and genomes enrichment analysis (KEGG) to determine their related signaling pathways. Molecular docking was conducted to study the binding activity of AND with the above targets. Finally, gene set enrichment analysis (GSEA) was performed, analyzing the expression differences of hub genes and the Kaplan-Meier survival curve by comparing glioma samples with normal samples. On the above basis, the effects of AND on the growth and morphological changes of human glioma U251 cells were observed, the effects of AND on the PI3K/AKT pathway were detected. Results: A total of 40 glioma related targets of AND were identified by network pharmacology, and 10 hub genes were screened out by bioinformatics method. AND had high binding activity to hub genes. GO and KEGG enrichment analysis results showed that the hub genes were related to biological processes such as the regulation of neuronal apoptosis, reactive oxygen metabolism, and were related to PI3K/AKT signaling pathways. GSEA enrichment analysis suggested that PI3K/AKT-mTOR and other signaling pathways were significantly up-regulated in glioma cells. Among the hub genes, HSP90AA1, HSP90AB1, RHOA, CDK2 and MET showed significant differences between glioma samples and normal samples. Kaplan-Meier survival curve showed that low expression of genes like BCL2L1, CDK2, SOD2 and MET had higher survival rates. In the in vitro studies, AND inhibited the growth of U251 cells in both time-dependent and dose-dependent manners. After the administration of AND, U251 cells became round and shriveled, which significantly decreased the expression of p-PI3K, p-AKT, p-PI3K/PI3K, p-AKT/AKT to the PI3K/AKT pathway. Conclusion: AND can inhibit the proliferation of human glioma U251 cells, which mechanism is related to the PI3K/AKT signaling pathway.

In order to study the antioxidant activity of Tricholoma matsutake polysaccharides (TMP), its antioxidant capacity in vitro was investigated using superoxide anion radical (O2 · ) scavenging capacity, total reducing capacity and ABTS radical scavenging capacity as indicators; and then the mouse model of ethanol oxidative damage was established, and the antioxidant activity of Tricholoma matsutake polysaccharides in vivo were measured by measuring alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alkaline phosphatase (AKP) in the serum of mice and the activity of catalase (CAT), malondialdehyde (MDA), superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) in the liver. In vitro antioxidant results showed that Tricholoma matsutake polysaccharides had better scavenging ability on superoxide anion free radical and ABTS free radical, and the scavenging rate reached 56.67% and 96.60% when the concentration was 1 mg/mL. However, the total reducing ability of Tricholoma matsutake polysaccharides was not obvious. When the concentration was 1 mg/mL, the absorbance value could reach 0.163. Animal experiment results showed that after four weeks of continuous gastric administration, compared with the model control group, Tricholoma matsutake polysaccharides could significantly reduce ALT, AST and AKP viability in mice serum (P<0.05); it also significantly increased the levels of CAT, SOD and GSH-Px in liver (P<0.05), when the content of MDA was significantly reduced (P<0.05). All these indicators showed a dose-response relationship. The experimental results showed that Tricholoma matsutake polysaccharides had certain antioxidant activity, hoping to provide ideas for the subsequent development and application of Tricholoma matsutake polysaccharides.
