Abstract

Acrylamide (AA) is a neurotoxin and carcinogen which is mainly formed in foods containing large quantities of starch processed at high temperatures and its determination is very important to control the quality of foods. In this work, a novel electrochemical biosensor based on...

Abstract

In an effort to achieve high sensitive and selective detection of pesticide residues, numerous nanomaterial-based aptasensors are currently being developed for acetamiprid analysis. Recently, aptamers as a potent alternative of antibodies are used in biosensing platforms. There is tremendous...

Abstract

Nano-emulsions (typically droplet diameter <1 µm) are common in foods, and have been extensively reported to present antimicrobial activity, however, the mechanism is not well defined, and some studies reported no effect. A review of the literature was conducted and revealed strongly contradictory reports regarding the antimicrobial effect of nano-emulsions even in reference to similar microbial species and formulations. Following up, this study aimed to investigate the effect of nano-emulsions on four bacterial species (Staphylococcus epidermidis, Bacillus cereus, Lactobacillus acidophilus and ...

Abstract

The effect of nitrate and the combination of nitrate/nitrite on Listeria innocua (as surrogate of Listeria monocytogenes). And two selected spoilage microorganisms (Proteus vulgaris and Serratia liquefaciens) was studied in dry-cured ham. Hams were manufactured with different concentrations of...

Abstract

Poly(β-L-malic acid) (PMA) production by Aureobasidium pullulans HA-4D was carried out through solid-state fermentation (SSF) using agro-industrial residues. Maximum PMA production (75.4 mg/g substrate) was obtained from a mixed substrate of sweet potato residue and wheat bran (1:1, w/w)...

Abstract

Totarol is a natural antimicrobial compound extracted from the heartwood of Podocarpus totara, a conifer native to New Zealand. The effects of whey protein-totarol nanoparticles treated with ultrasound on the physiochemical properties and the growth of Staphylococcus aureus were investigated. The...

Abstract

Obesity is a global health threat on the rise, and its prevalence continues to grow. Yet suitable biomedical sensors to monitor body fat burn rates in situ, to guide physical activity or dietary interventions toward efficient weight loss, are missing. Here, we introduce a compact and inexpensive...
