In order to explore the effects of antagonistic bacterium treatment on the preservation effect and protective enzyme activity of muskmelon, this study selected Xizhoumi 25 melon as the research object, and inoculated the melon surface with Bacillus velezensis BG-2 at 25 ℃ and 4 ℃. The colonization characteristics, preservation effect, Peroxidase (POD), polyphenol oxidase (PPO) and Phenylalnine ammonialyase (PAL) of antagonistic bacteria on melon surface during storage were determined. Under the conditions of 25 ℃ and 4 ℃, the number of antagonistic bacteria on melon surface increased firstly and then decreased. The fresh-keeping effect, pH and soluble solid content decreased of muskmelon inoculated with antagonistic bacteria were significantly better than those of control group. POD and PAL activities increased first and then decreased, PPO activity increased first and then decreased at room temperature, and slowly increased at 4 ℃. At 25 ℃, the enzyme activity of POD, PAL and PPO in antagonistic treatment group was the highest on the 20th day, and the highest on the 10th day; Under 4 ℃, POD and PAL activity were the highest on the 20th day. The highest enzyme activity on the 40th day of PPO treatment. The enzyme activity of the antagonistic bacterium treatment was always higher than pathogen treatment. Bacillus BG-2 could stably colony on the epidermal of muskmelon at both 25 ℃ and 4 ℃, inhibited the decaed of muskmelon during storage, delayed the decreased of pH, soluble solids content, POD, PPO and PAL enzyme activities, and the combinated of BG-2 and low temperature had better effect on the above. This study provided a theoretical basis for prolonged the storage period of Xinjiang muskmelon and provided technical support for the antagonistic bacterium effect of muskmelon after harvest.

The antioxidant peptides were prepared from Volvariella volvacea protein by protease hydrolysis. Based on the single-factor test, the extraction conditions of antioxidant peptides from V. volvacea protein were optimized using response surface methodology. At the same time, peptides with different retention molecular weights were isolated by ultrafitration, and their antioxidant activity were detected through 2,2-dipheny1-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical scavenging activity, Fe2+ chelating ability and reducing power. The results showed that the optimum enzyme for enzymatic hydrolysis was neutral protease, and the optimum process for antioxidant peptide was as follows: The enzymatic hydrolysis time was 3.70 h, the enzyme dosage was 3.81%, and the substrate mass concentration was 3.11 g/100 mL. Under the optimal enzymalysis conditions, DPPH free radical scavenging rate of the optimal hydrolysis products was 69.85%±2.52%. The F1 fraction with the lowest molecular weight (<3 kDa) exhibited the highest antioxidant activity. DPPH free radical scavenging rate, Fe2+ chelating ability and reducing power of F1 were 78.81%±1.56%, 91.05%±1.65%, 0.47±0.02. The antioxidant peptides from V. volvacea protein can be explored as a potential natural antioxidant.

The purpose of this paper is to prepare a sturgeon cartilage product from sturgeon cartilage and explore its effect on inflammation of human chondrocytes. A kind of sturgeon cartilage product was prepared by thermal liquefaction of sturgeon cartilage and dragon tendon at high temperature and high pressure. The optimum preparation conditions were determined by single factor and orthogonal test. Human chondrocytes were cultured by preparing drug-containing serum and the effects of sturgeon cartilage products on Interleukin 1β (IL-1β)-induced cell inflammatory model were investigated by MTT, Alsinland staining and ELISA. The results showed that the best preparation conditions of sturgeon cartilage products were as follows: Hot liquefaction temperature was 120 ℃, hot liquefaction time was 20 min, boiling temperature was 80 ℃, boiling time was 30 min. Under this condition, the sensory score of the product was 59.69. The drug-containing serum of sturgeon cartilage products group had no cytotoxicity and could stimulate chondrocytes to secrete collagen and proteoglycan and other extracellular matrix. Meanwhile, the product could significantly increase the proliferation activity of inflammatory cells by 156% (P<0.05), and significantly inhibited the expression levels of NO, INOS, IL-6, COX-2 and PGE2 in the inflammatory chondrocytes (P<0.05).

The effects of grain water content on the properties of sweet buckwheat and Agriophyllum squarrosum (A. squarrosum) flour were studied. The results showed that the starch content of whole buckwheat flour was significantly (P<0.05) higher than that of whole A. squarrosum flour, while the protein, fat and crude fiber contents of buckwheat flour were significantly (P<0.05) lower than that of which. The grain size, oil absorption and expansion power of two kind flours increased with the increase of grain water content. The water absorption and elastic modulus of whole buckwheat flour decreased significantly (P<0.05) with the increase of grain water content, but the changes of the two characteristic values of A. squarrosum flour were opposite. Grain water content had no significant effect on damaged starch content of whole buckwheat flour, but the damaged starch content of whole A. squarrosum flour decreased significantly (P<0.05) with the increase of grain water content. The values of gelatinization viscosity and gel hardness of buckwheat flour were higher than that of whole A. squarrosum flour, while the viscoelasticity and enthalpy of buckwheat flour were lower than that of whole A. squarrosum flour. The difference of damaged starch content and grain size of whole A. squarrosum flour with different water content had significant (P<0.05) effects on its expansion degree, solubility, gelatinization characteristic value, gelatinization enthalpy and dough rheological properties. These results indicated that the properties of whole A. squarrosum flour were different from buckwheat flour, and the processing properties of whole A. squarrosum flour could be controlled by changing the grain water content. This study will provide theoretical support for the high-value utilization of A. squarrosum seeds as a new food resource and help ensure national food security.

Abstract: Objective: The protective effects of hydroxytyrosol from Phyllanthus emblica Linn leaves (PHT) on CS2-induced testicular injury in mice were studied. Methods: The experimental mice were randomly divided into control group (distilled water), CS2 exposure group (50 mg/m3) and PHT intervention groups (450, 150 and 50 mg/kg). The exposure group and intervention group were exposed to static inhalation for 2 hours a day, 5 days a week for 4 weeks. The intervention group received PHT intragastric intervention every day. The exposure group and the control group were perfused with distilled water. After 4 weeks, the testicular organ coefficient, sperm quality, superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) activity and malondialdehyde (MDA) content in testicular homogenate were tested, and the pathological sections of testis were observed. Western blot was used to detect the expression of apoptosis-related factors in testis. Results: After the intervention, the testicular organ coefficients of mice in the medium and high-dose PHT groups were higher than those in the CS2 group (P<0.01). There was no statistical difference between high-dose PHT group and control group (P>0.05); The sperm count and sperm motility in each PHT dose group were higher than those in the CS2 group (P<0.01), but lower than those in the control group (P<0.01). The sperm deformity rate of each PHT dose group was lower than that of CS2 group (P<0.01), and there was no significant difference between high-dose PHT group and control group (P>0.05). The pathological sections of testis showed that the morphology of testis in each PHT dose group was improved compared with CS2 group. No significant difference was observed under microscope between the high-dose PHT group and the control group; The expression of oxidative stress and apoptosis related factor protein showed that MDA content in testis of each PHT dose group was lower than that of CS2 group (P<0.01), and there was no significant difference between high-dose PHT group and control group (P>0.05); The activity of SOD and GSH-Px in testis tissue of each PHT dose group was higher than that of CS2 group (P<0.05), but lower than that of control group (P<0.01); The expression of Bax and Caspase-3 in testis tissue of each PHT dose group was lower than that of CS2 group, the expression of Bcl-2 was increased (P<0.01), and there was difference between each PHT dose group and control group (P<0.05). Conclusion: CS2 can induce oxidative damage of testis in mice, and PHT can antagonize the testicular tissue damage induced by CS2. The mechanism may be related to the strong antioxidant activity of PHT, which maintains the activity of some antioxidant enzymes, alleviates the oxidative damage and reduces the formation of apoptotic factors.

Objective: To explore the anti-aging function and mechanism of pond turtle protein-derived peptides (PTPDP) on Drosophila melanogaster. Methods: PTPDP were obtained by enzymatic hydrolysis of turtle meat. Nutrients content, molecular weight distribution and amino acid composition of PTPDP were determined. D. melanogaster were fed with 0.2%, 0.4%, and 0.8% PTPDP. The activities of superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase (CAT), along with the content of malondialdehyde (MDA) were determined to analyze the anti-aging function of PTPDP. The anti-aging mechanism was explored by measuring the expression of antioxidant genes (Sod1, Sod2 and Cat) and lifespan-related genes (mth and Rpn11) in female D. melanogaster fed with 0.8% PTPDP. Results: The enzymatic hydrolysis products of turtle meat were mainly composed of small molecule peptides less than 1000 Da. PTPDP were rich in amino acids with antioxidant activity, such as glycine, glutamic acid and proline. In the survival experiment, the average lifespans of female and male D. melanogaster were significantly prolonged by 18.92% and 9.37% (P<0.01), respectively. In the antioxidant activity experiment, the SOD activity of female and male D. melanogaster increased significantly by 7.13% and 7.37% (P<0.05); the CAT activity of female and male D. melanogaster increased significantly by 42.14% and 84.66% (P<0.01); the MDA content of female and male D. melanogaster decreased significantly by 22.22% and 23.08% (P<0.05). In female D. melanogaster fed with 0.8% PTPDP, the expression of anti-oxidant related genes Sod1, Sod2 (P<0.05) and Cat (P<0.01) were significantly up-regulated, and genes (mth and Rpn11) related to lifespan also showed different degrees of regulation (P<0.01). Conclusion: PTPDP increase the antioxidant activity of D. melanogaster by affecting the expression of antioxidant genes and lifespan-related genes, thereby prolonging the lifespan of D. melanogaster. This mechanism implies that PTPDP has potential anti-aging effects.

In order to clarify the status of pesticide residues in watermelon fruits produced by different cultivation methods and their differences, this paper took 65 watermelon samples produced in three cultivation methods: Large shed, small arch shed, and open field as the research object, and 60 pesticide residues in the completed samples. On the basis of quantitative analysis, through technical methods such as chronic and acute dietary risk analysis and risk ranking, the differences of pesticide residues in watermelon fruits produced by the three planting methods were discussed. The results showed that: Some samples had residual pesticides, but their chronic and acute dietary risks were not high; among the three planting methods, the open field planting method had the largest number of residual pesticides, with 9 types, and the proportion of very lowrisk samples was also low. In the other two methods, it reached 76%; in addition, the three types of planting methods need to focus on the relatively high risk of different types of residual pesticides. The green house used triazophos, and the small arch house used difenoconazole, profenofos, and chlorofluoro cyanurate. Pyrethrin was grown in the open as triazophos, profenofos, and prochloraz. Based on the above analysis, it could be concluded that among the three planting methods, the risk of pesticide residues in watermelon grown in open field was relatively high, and supervision should be strengthened according to the differences in the types of pesticide residues with relatively high risks.

Abstract(13) HTML](0) PDF(0)
To guide consumers to choose a healthier roasted seeds and nuts food, this study attempted to improve "Healthy Choice" labeling in China by referring to the recommended nutrition evaluation standard of heart-check mark. It was verified by using 21 kinds of roasted nuts, seeds and kernels/seed kernels included in Chinese Food Composition Table (Volume 1, 6th edition) and found that only chestnuts (cooked), hazelnuts (cooked), peanuts (fried), pumpkin seeds (fried) [white melon seeds] and watermelon seeds (fried) met the nutritional evaluation criteria of saturated fatty acid ≤8 g/100 g, sodium ≤120 mg/100 g, and at least one rich in protein, dietary fiber, vitamin A, iron and calcium. Pine nuts (stir-fry) and hazelnuts (stir-fry) labeled with the "Healthy Choice" labeling originally were removed. Therefore, the improved "Healthy Choice" labeling could assist consumers in identifying the nut products with "three cuts" (less salt, less oil and less sugar) and choosing high nutrient-dense foods rich in protein or dietary fiber.

2022, 43(13): 1-8.   doi: 10.13386/j.issn1002-0306.2021120153
Abstract(16) HTML(10) PDF(4)
Grape is one of the largest agricultural products exported from China to ASEAN. Grapes are prone to diseases and insect pests in the production process, and a variety of pesticides are used on them. Pesticide residue is an important factor affecting the quality and safety of grapes. Both China and ASEAN countries have set the maximum residue limit (MRL) of pesticides on grapes. This paper compares the pesticide MRL on grapes in China, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia and Myanmar, and analyses the risk of excessive pesticide residues in China's export of grapes to ASEAN. The conclusion shows that mancozeb, thiram, azoxystrobin, dimethomorph which are registered on grapes, and fenpropathrin, fenvalerate, fipronil, malathion, deltamethrin, trichlorfon which are unregistered on grapes, have a high risk of excessive pesticide residues when exporting grapes. In addition, Thailand and Malaysia have set a default limit of 0.01 mg/kg, for the pesticides which are registered on grapes in China and have no standard in these two counties and Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC), should also be concerned when exporting grapes.

Abstract(16) HTML(4) PDF(6)
Lactones are widely used in confectionery, beverages, dairy products, baking and other foods due to their typical creamy, floral and fruity aromas. In recent years, because consumers prefer the natural properties of products, the preparation and biological regulation of lactones by microbial transformation has attracted much attention. The microbial transformation mechanisms of γ- and δ-lactones are reviewed in this paper, including the way of fatty acids entering mitochondria, β-oxidation, cyclization and degradation metabolic pathways. The existing regulation methods of microbial transformation are also summarized, such as gene regulation based on genomics, dissolved oxygen, substrate batch culture, cell immobilization and strain mutagenesis. The research direction of regulation of lactones is prospected, which can provide reference for more economical and efficient microbial transformation of lactones.

2022, 43(13): 25-33.   doi: 10.13386/j.issn1002-0306.2021070377
Abstract(20) HTML(7) PDF(5)
In order to prevent the oxidative rancidity of highland barley, three common treatment methods of microwave, roasting and superheated steam were used to inactivate the enzyme of black highland barley. Then the changes of microstructure, nutrient composition, phenolic compounds and antioxidant capacity before and after inactivation of enzymes treatment were evaluated when the same enzyme inactivation effect was achieved. The experimental results showed that different methods of inactivating enzyme resulted in different degrees of expansion and browning of highland barley. The color change and equivalent radius of highland barley roasted at 175 ℃ for 20 min was the largest, the equivalent radius of highland barley grain was similar after microwave and superheated steam treatment. By observing the electron microscope of highland barley treated with different methods of inactivating enzyme, it could be found that there were gaps and pores in the cross section of grain, and even large holes in vascular bundles. In addition, total phenols (decreased by 14.71%~20.52%) and total flavonoids (decreased by 11.39%~45.15%) decreased significantly after three treatments, and the content of flavonoids and phenols in highland barley roasted at 150 ℃ for 20 min was the lowest. While the effect of microwave treatment on the content of total phenols was lower than the other two treatments, and the effect of superheated steam treatment on the content of total flavonoids was the least. But DPPH free radical scavenging rate, ABTS+ scavenging rate and antioxidant activity increased except microwave treatment. However, the change trend of antioxidant capacity of highland barley after different enzyme inactivation treatments was not completely consistent with the change trend of total phenol and total flavonoids. Under the treatment conditions of enzyme inactivation rate of 50% and 60%, the antioxidant capacity of highland barley treated with superheated steam was the highest, followed by roasting treatment, and the antioxidant capacity of microwave treatment was the lowest. In summary, it can be concluded that the three treatments can be used to inactivate enzyme and can effectively improve the nutritional quality of highland barley. However, the comprehensive evaluation shows that superheated steam treatment is the best choice among the three treatments.

Abstract(26) HTML(11) PDF(7)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the construction of curcumin encapsulated nanocomposite based on bovine serum albumin (BSA) could be a potential strategy to improve the ripening quality of yak cheese. The moisture, ash, crude protein, crude fat, pH value, pH4.6 acetate buffer soluble nitrogen, 12% trichloroacetic acid solution soluble nitrogen, thiobarbituric acid reactant, acid value and sensory index of yak milk cheese were determined. The results showed that the presence of curcumin-BSA nanocomplex could significantly improve the moisture and protein content of yak milk cheese (P<0.05), promote the proliferation of lactic acid bacteria and inhibit the growth of hybrid bacteria, contribute to the decomposition of fat and protein in yak milk cheese, and form short-chain fatty acids and polypeptides, presenting a good unique flavor. However, the high addition of complex would weaken the probiotic effect, reduce the decomposition efficiency of fat and protein, and also cause the cheese to turn yellow and reduce the sensory score. In the early stage of the maturation process, the sensory score was significantly improved due to the occurrence of proteolysis reaction and lipolysis reaction (P<0.05), but too long maturation period would lead to accumulation of bitter peptides and other substances, forming bad flavors and affecting sensory quality. In general, curcumin-bovine serum albumin complex can improve the quality of yak milk cheese, and the best quality of yak milk cheese is obtained when the compound supplemental level is 4% and the maturation time is 60 d.

In this study, three different starch-lipid complexes were prepared using corn starch and stearic acid with different straight branch ratios as raw materials. Then the external morphology, crystal structure, digestibility, sustained release and other characteristics of the starch-lipid complex were determined by scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction and fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. The results showed that: Compared with the original starch, the volume of the compound was increased, and the surface was uneven by scanning electron microscope. Infrared spectroscopy proved the formation of starch-lipid complexes, and the increase in hydrogen bonds might lead to an increase in resistant starch content. The complexs generated a diffraction angle of the V-type crystal structure. After treatment, normal corn starch (normal) and high amylose corn starch (G60) reduced the content of rapidly digestible starch (RDS), increased the content of slowly digestible starch (SDS), and increased the content of resistant starch (RS). The content of resistant starch reached to 52.0% and 52.4%. The release of stearic acid in the compound was divided into two stages, showing a trend of fast first and then slow, and the increase of amylose content could significantly improve the sustained release ability of the compound for stearic acid. This article could provide a reference for further improving the application scope of amylose.

In order to meet the demand of high mechanical strength hydrogels in the food field, broken rice protein and sodium alginate were used as the main raw materials to prepare a food-grade broken rice protein (RP)-sodium alginate (SA) interpenetrating polymer network (IPN) hydrogels with high mechanical properties through heat treatment and ion cross-linking in this study. The mechanical properties of IPN hydrogels were adjusted by changing the concentration of rice protein (80, 100, 120, 140, 160 mg/mL) in the gel system of rice protein and sodium alginate, and the properties of the hydrogels, such as texture, rheological properties, whiteness, swelling and water content, were measured after the mixture was heated and Ca2+ cross linked. The results showed that: With the increase of the concentration of broken rice protein in the gel system, the storage modulus G', loss modulus G" and gel hardness of RP-SA IPN hydrogels increased. When the broken rice protein concentration was 140 mg/mL, the increase of gel hardness became smaller. The swelling property of hydrogels first decreased and then tended to be flat, but the water distribution was more uniform. Therefore, proper amount of broken rice protein could fill the RP-SA IPN hydrogels network very well, and the morphology of the hydrogel was not changed greatly. At the same time, the mechanical properties of hydrogels could be regulated by regulating the amount of protein added. This study provides a theoretical basis for the application of rice protein in the field of food.

To study the effect of fortified Zygosaccharomyces rouxii (JL-02) on the quality of soy sauce, salt tolerance characteristic of strain JL-02, pH and neutral proteinase activity of koji, the physicochemical properties and volatile flavor substances of two soy sauces in different brewing processes were analyzed. The results showed that salt tolerance of the strain JL-02 was up to 16%, the pH of koji was 6.85±0.08, and the neutral proteinase activity reached to (2109.2±45.2) U/g. Compared with the control group, the soy sauce treated with fortified Zygosaccharomyces rouxii exhibited the increased total acid content ((1.14±0.01) g/100 mL), decreased reducing sugar content ((1.06±0.01) g/100 mL) and pH value (5.09±0.03). But there was no significant difference in the content of amino nitrogen, and all samples reached the standard of special grade soy sauce. In addition, there were 15, 52 and 57 volatile flavor compounds in the koji, control group, and experimental group, respectively. And the furan flavor substances (2-pentylfuran, 4-methoxy-2,5-dimethyl-3(2H)-furanone and 2,3-dihydrobenzofuran) were increased in the experimental group. The principal component analysis of the volatile flavor compounds in the three groups of samples showed a good result. This research provides a theoretical basis and technical reference for the soy sauce enterprises to carry out the intensified yeast strain brewing soy sauce technology in the future.

Abstract(22) HTML(7) PDF(5)
Objective: The stability of antioxidant peptide activity of safflower seed protein with different molecular weight was studied. Methods: Using shelled safflower seed meal as experimental material, antioxidant peptides were prepared by compound enzymatic hydrolysis. The scavenging ability of 1-diphenyl-2-trinitrophenylhydrazine (DPPH) free radical, superoxide anion radical (O2·) and hydroxyl radical (·OH) were used as indexes. The effects of environmental factors such as temperature, pH, food raw materials, metal ions and simulated gastrointestinal digestion on the activity of antioxidant peptides from safflower seeds with different molecular weight were studied. Results: The activities of the protease hydrolysates <3 kDa (SSPH-Ⅰ) and 3~5 kDa (SSPH-Ⅱ) of safflower seeds were significantly higher than those before separation (P<0.05), while the activities of SSPH-Ⅲ (5~10 kDa) and SSPH-Ⅳ (>10 kDa) were significantly lower than those before separation (P<0.05). It was found that the antioxidant activity of SSPH-Ⅰ was more stable and could maintain its activity under the condition of 60 to 121 ℃ and weak acid and weak base of pH 6~8, and the free radical scavenging rate maintenance rate was more than 90%. 10 g/100 mL NaCl, glucose and 0.2 g/100 mL citric acid enhanced the antioxidant activity of SSPH-Ⅰ. The free radical scavenging rate maintenance rate was to about 105%. Sucrose of 10 g/100 mL and preservatives of 0.2 g/100 mL had little effect on the antioxidant activity. The addition of Cu2+, Zn2+ and K+ metal ions significantly decreased the antioxidant stability of SSPH-I and the order of effect was as follows: Cu2+>Zn2+>K+>Mg2+>Ca2+, was stable after simulated gastrointestinal digestion, and the maintenance rate was 80% (P<0.05). Conclusion: The antioxidant peptides of <3 kDa safflower seed protein showed high activity and stability, which provided theoretical basis for its industrial production and application.

Abstract(15) HTML(6) PDF(5)
To study the effects of different types of aquatic products and gastrointestinal digestion on tropomyosin (TM), this article selects three crustaceans (Litopenaeus vannamei, Penaeus monodon and Eriocheir sisensis) and two shellfish (Venerupis philippinarum and Sinonovacula constricta) as the research object. Simulated gastric fluid (SGF) and intestinal fluid (SIF) were used to digest the boiled muscles of 5 kinds of aquatic products, the protein composition and immune activity of the subtracted products were analyzed by SDS-PAGE and ELISA. The results showed that all samples were digested faster in SIF, and intestinal was the main place where TM activity was lost. And shellfish (stomach: 86.5%~86.8%, intestine: 90.8%~92.2%) had a significantly better immune activity reduction effect than crustacean aquatic products (stomach: 64.7%~67.7%, intestine: 89.0%~91.5%). By electron microscopy, the myofibrils of crustaceans (156.4~185.8 μm) were significantly longer than that of shellfish (125.0~134.6 μm), and its width was about 3 times that of shellfish. This study found that the type of aquatic products will affect the digestive ability of the gastrointestinal tract of TM. The difference in the muscle tissue structure of crustaceans and shellfish is one of the reasons for the difference in digestibility and immune activity of crustaceans and shellfish. This study can provide a scientific basis for exploring the mechanism of gastrointestinal digestion to reduce the allergenicity of aquatic products.

Abstract(1) HTML(1) PDF(1)
In order to study the influence of different pretreatment methods on viscosity and gel strength of curdlan, investigate the effects of pretreated curdlan on water-holding capacity and texture properties of low fat beef sausage, the influence of high speed cutting and alkali-neutralization on viscosity and gel strength of curdlan was studied. Furthermore, in the preparation of the low fat beef sausage, curdlan pretreated by high speed cutting and alkali-neutralization was added at 0.1%, 0.3%, 0.5% and 0.7%. The effects were investigated by measuring cooking loss, water-holding capacity, textural properties and sensory score. The results showed that pretreatments of high speed cutting and alkali-neutralization enhanced viscosity and gel strength of curdlan significantly (P<0.05). Moreover, curdlan pretreated by alkali-neutralization showed higher viscosity and gel strength. Pretreatments of high speed cutting and alkali dissolving were optimal within 5 and 15 min respectively. Cooking loss of low fat beef sausage decreased significantly (P<0.05), non-expressible water, water-holding capacity, hardness, chewiness and sensory score of low fat beef sausage increased obviously with the increased addition of curdlan treated by high speed cutting and alkali-neutralization (P<0.05), in comparison to low fat beef sausage with non-treated curdlan powder. Furthermore, low fat beef sausage added curdlan treated by alkali-neutralization performed better in cooking loss, water-holding capacity, hardness, chewiness and sensory score. Therefore, pretreatments of high speed cutting and alkali-neutralization could be used to improve the viscosity, gel strength and application of curdlan effectively. Meanwhile, alkali-neutralization was the better one.

In order to explore the composition and diversity of bacterial flora in air-dried yak meat on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, high-throughput sequencing technology was used to analyze the differences in the composition and diversity of bacterial flora in air-dried yak meat in different regions of Tibet. In this study, the ordered sequences of Nagqu, Qamdo, Xigaze, Lhasa, and Shannan in Tibet were: 56869, 110798, 71633, 86532, 60861, OTU numbers were: 1887, 1567, 2234, 6021, 2190. In the phylum classification, the dominant strains of Nagqu, Xigaze, Lhasa, and Shannan groups were Firmicutes and Actinomycetes, and Qamdo was Proteobacteria and Firmicutes. In terms of family classification, the dominant strain of Naqu group was Lactobacillus, Qamdo group was Enterobacteriaceae, Shigatse group was Intrasporangiaceae, Lhasa group was Micrococcaceae, and Shannan group was Corynebacteriaceae. In terms of genus classification, the Naqu group belonged to the genus Lactobacillus, the Qamdo group belonged to the genus Pseudomonas, the Xigaze and Shannan groups belonged to the genus Corynebacterium, and the Lhasa belonged to the genus Arthrobacter, indicating the colony composition and abundance of air-dried yak meat in different areas of Tibet the above was different. The results found that there were beneficial bacteria for quality formation and flavor production in air-dried yak meat, as well as dominant spoilage bacteria and pathogenic bacteria. This had a lot to do with the pre-processing of raw meat and the production environment of farmers in Tibetan areas. The results provide a certain reference for the subsequent production of air-dried yak meat, to understand the food pathogenic bacteria and the food hazards of pathogenic bacteria, and to improve the awareness of the production and processing hygiene and safety of farmers in Tibetan areas.

Abstract(19) HTML(8) PDF(4)
Objective: The α-amylase from Thermomyces dupontii was modified by direct evolution to improve its thermostability and expression level. Methods: A mutation library of α-amylase (Td-amy) from Thermomyces dupontii was constructed by error-prone PCR. The mutants with higher thermostability and specific activity were selected through high-throughput screening, analysis of the mutants by site-directed mutagenesis and homologous structure simulation, and expression in Pichia pastoris. Results: A positive mutant (mTd-amy) was selected. The optimal temperature of mTd-amy was 60 ℃, which was higher than that of the wild type enzyme Td-amy (55 ℃) by 5 ℃. The specific activity of mTd-amy (466.3 U/mg) was 2.0 times higher than that of Td-amy (227.9 U/mg). Sequence and mutation analysis revealed that four sites (Ala4Val, Ala122Val, Lys194Arg and Ala468Asp) in mTd-amy were mutated, and Ala122 Val and Ala468Asp played a key role in the specific activity and optimal temperature of the mutant. mTd-amy was further expressed in Pichia pastoris, and its expression level was up to 64696 U/mL through high cell density fermentation. Conclusion: Through directed evolution, a positive mutant of with high optimal temperature and specific activity was obtained. It provides a theoretical basis for the molecular modification and industrial application of α-amylase.

Polysaccharide from Ziziphus jujube Mill. (ZJP) was extracted by ultrasound-assisted extraction. Taking the extraction rate as the evaluation index, the extraction process of polysaccharide was optimized by Design-Expert8.0 and orthogonal experiment on the basis of single-factor test. Subsequently, DPPH free radical and hydroxyl free radical scavenging abilities were used as indicators to evaluate the antioxidant effect of polysaccharides, and the inhibitory rates of α-amylase and α-glucosidase were used as indicators to prove that jujube polysaccharides had the potential of reducing blood sugar. Finally, an external model was established to explore its hypoglycemic mechanism. The optimum parameters were as follows: ultrasonic time of 40 min, solid-liquid ratio of 1:20, ultrasonic power of 80 W, water-bath incubation time of 30 min. Under these conditions the extraction rate of ZJP was 6.58%, which was consistent with the theoretical prediction value of 6.71%. Moreover, the antioxidant activity of ZJP was determined by DPPH free radical and hydroxyl free radical scavenging system and iron-reducing power. In addition, when the polysaccharide concentration reached 14 mg/mL, the inhibition rate of α-glucosidase was 51.56%, and when the concentration was 4 mg/mL, the inhibition rate of α-amylase was 28.43%, respectively, confirming that jujube polysaccharide had obvious hypoglycemic activity. On this basis, the insulin resistance HepG2 cell model was used to detect the glucose consumption effect of different concentrations of jujube polysaccharides by glucose kit and MTT method. The results showed that when the concentration of the drug was 1.0 mg/mL, the cell's consumption of glucose was the largest, GT/MTT reached 154.2% of the model group. Western blotting was used to detect the protein expression level of PI3K/Akt pathway in insulin-resistant HepG2 cells, and it was determined that ZJP could alleviate insulin resistance and exert cytoprotective effect by activating PI3K/Akt pathway. In summary, the extraction method of jujube polysaccharide was optimized, and it was confirmed that jujube polysaccharide had anti-oxidant activity and hypoglycemic activity in vitro, and could be used as a potential anti-oxidant or functional food with a homology of medicine and food.

Abstract(11) HTML(8) PDF(6)
To explore an effective solution for high-value utilization of fish viscera, ultrasound coupled with subcritical water extraction (USCWE) was used to separate fish oil from Spanish mackerel viscera. The results were compared with those from enzymatic extraction (EE), ultrasonic-assisted organic solvent extraction (UOSE), and supercritical carbon dioxide extraction (SCE). Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) was applied to analyze the fatty acid composition of the fish oil. The conversion rate of hydrothermal liquefaction (CRHL) of Spanish mackerel visceral stroma protein (SMVSP) was determined to explore the chemical mechanism of USCWE. Scanning electron microscope (SEM) was applied to observe the destructive action of ultrasonic physical effect coupled with subcritical water hydrothermal liquefaction on the network structure composed of stroma protein. The optimal conditions for USCWE of fish oil were consistent with that for the CRHL of SMVSP. The maximum extraction yield (EY, 59.87%±2.86%) of fish oil and CRHL of SMVSP (92.37%±3.12%) were obtained at 260 ℃ and 10 MPa with ultrasound enhancement (250 W/L, 20 kHz) for 60 min. Compared with the other three extraction methods, the EY of fish oil by USCWE was the highest. Moreover, the contents of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in fish oil were also the highest, which were (46.01±0.31) mg/g and (116.78±0.91) mg/g, respectively. The fish oil obtained by SCE showed the lowest acid value (AV, (7.15±0.33) mg KOH/g), peroxide value (POV, (1.83±0.13) mmol/kg), and carbonyl group value (CGV, (2.01±0.21) mEq/kg). USCWE could effectively destruct the network structure composed of stroma protein and fully released the fish oil wrapped in the mesh which had the advantages of environmental protection, short extraction time, high extraction yield and high content of EPA or DHA. The oxidation stability of fish oil by SCE was the highest, but the extraction time of SCE was longer and the EY was lower. This study elucidated the mechanism of USCWE of fish oil from Spanish mackerel viscera and provided experimental and theoretical basis for the precise use of this technology.

Abstract(109) HTML(19) PDF(17)
To investigate the changes of flavor compounds of chicken liver by different deodorization methods, the volatile flavor compounds of raw and cooked chicken liver samples were analyzed by sensory evaluation, electronic nose and headspace-solid phase microextraction-gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (HS-SPME-GC-MS). The results showed that deodorization methods of ginger juice/alcohol immersion, β-cyclodextrin embedding and yeast fermentation could significantly reduce the odor value (P<0.05). The radar chart of electronic nose response value showed that the overall odor of chicken liver was mainly sulfide, aromatic components, alcohols, aldehydes and ketones. Deodorization by immersing liver into ginger juice/alcohol could change the original flavor contour of chicken liver, and principal component analysis (PCA) could better distinguish each sample. A total of 124 volatile flavor compounds were detected by HS-SPME-GC-MS. After deodorization process of ginger juice/alcohol immersion and yeast fermentation, the contents of aldehydes and many odorous compounds in chicken liver decreased significantly. After the chicken liver was cooked, benzaldehyde was the main flavor of chicken liver. The ethanol content in ginger juice/alcohol immersion group was obviously higher than that of control group and yeast fermentation group, which was the factor to maintain good flavor after cooking. The paper suggested that ginger juice/alcohol immersion and yeast fermentation could better improve the flavor of chicken liver.

Abstract(51) HTML(17) PDF(22)
In order to explore the effects of variety and late ripening stage on flavor of apple juice, volatile profile of apple juice obtained from five varieties and three late ripening stages were analyzed using headspace solid phase micro-extraction combined with gas chromatography-mass spectrometry followed by multivariate data analysis. The results showed that alcohols (2-methyl-1-butanol, 1-hexanol, etc.), aldehydes (hexanal, E-2-hexenal, etc.) and esters (2-methyl Butyl acetate, etc.) were the main volatile components of apple juice. Variety and late ripening stage had significant effects on the content and composition of key aroma components in apple juice. Granny Smith apple juice had the lowest contents of volatile components among samples and aldehydes were the main volatiles representing green grass flavor; Fuji, Gala, and Golden Delicious apple juices showed similar volatile profile with high amounts of esters, aldehydes, and alcohols. The volatile aroma components of Huashuo apple juice were mainly alcohols and aldehydes, and the whole juice showed a light taste. In addition, during late ripening stages, volatiles clearly changed in apple juice with different varieties. Volatiles of Fuji and Granny Smith apple juice were gradually accumulated and content of respective 28 and 15 volatile compounds increased significantly during late ripening. There was an increased but then decreased trend of volatile contents in Gala and Golden Delicious apple juice. However, Huashuo apple juice showed decreased volatiles contents during late ripening. The outcome of the research on flavor changes of apple cloudy juice could provide theoretical support for raw material selection of cloudy apple juice industry.

Abstract(24) HTML(11) PDF(5)
This study aimed to research the effectiveness and mode of the disease resistance induced by melatonin (MT) treatment in postharvest plum fruit. Plum fruit Cv ‘Fenghuang’ were treated with 10 mmol/L MT and/or inoculated with R. stolonifer, then stored for 5 days (20 ℃). Disease development, the contents of H2O2, total phenol and lignin and the activities of resistance-related enzyme were determined during the storage. The results showed that 10 mmol/L treatment effectively lowered the disease incidence and delayed the increase of lesion diameter of Rhizopus rot caused by R. stolonifer in plums. Single MT treatment could induce the activities of phenylpropanoid metabolic enzymes and the contents of total phenol and lignin in plums. MT treatment combined with R. tolonifer inoculation showed most significantly effects on the induction of H2O2 burst, and the activities of disease-resistance related enzymes such as chitinase, β-1,3-glucanase, phenylalanine ammonialyase (PAL), cinnamate-4-hydroxylase (C4H), 4-coumaric acid coenzyme A ligase (4-CL), peroxidase (POD) and polyphenol oxidase (PPO) as well as contents of total phenol and lignin in the samples during the storage. These results suggested that the MT treatment could activate the strong and rapid disease resistance upon the pathogenic infection by an induction of priming defence, by which the treatment resultantly maintained the overall quality in plums during the postharvest storage.

2022, 43(13): 345-352.   doi: 10.13386/j.issn1002-0306.2021100016
Abstract(30) HTML(11) PDF(7)
Objective: The anti-inflammatory activities of apigenin-7-O-β-D-glucopyranoside, apigenin 5-O-glucoside, vitexin and isovitexin were evaluated. Methods: Changes of protein in THP-1 cells pretreated with flavonoids were measured by Western blot test. The differences of cytokines were analyzed by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and fluorescence quantitative polymerase chain reaction. Results: It showed that all the flavonoids tested could repress the gene expression of IL-10 (P<0.01). Vitexin and isovitexin inhibited the production of cyclooxygenase-2 as well (P<0.01). What’s more, isovitexin significantly suppressed the increases of interleukin-1β (P<0.01) and interleukin-6 (P<0.01). Apigenin-7-O-β-D-glucopyranoside only significantly inhibited TNF-α (P<0.01). Apart from IL-10 mRNA, apigenin 5-O-glucoside displayed no anti-inflammatory effects according to the other results of cytokine analyses. Furthermore, the structure of apigenin-C-glycoside substituted at position 8, namely isovitexin showed the strongest inhibition on nuclear translocation of P65 (P<0.01). However, this suppression effect of isovitexin on P65 was not through inhibiting upstream regulation proteins such as IκBα and IKKβ. Conclusion: In a word, compared with apigenin-O-glycosides, apigenin-C-glycosides especially isovitexin had a better anti-inflammatory activity based on cell line THP-1. But the anti-inflamamtion of isovitexin was not IκBα -dependent NF- κB signal pathway.
