Abstract Gums are a class of naturally occurring polysaccharides/carbohydrate polymers derived from renewable sources, which have the capacity to hydrate in water either by forming a gel or stabilizing emulsion systems. Among the substitutes recently considered to replace the application of petroleum-derived polymers against postharvest diseases and shelf life extension, gums and their derivatives have been considered as promising biocontrol products. Polysaccharide gum coatings provide a semipe...

Abstract This study was performed to develop a low-cost smart system for identification and quantification of adulterated edible bird's nest (EBN). The smart system was constructed with a colorimetric sensor array (CSA), a smartphone and a multi-layered network model. The CSA were used to collect the odor character of EBN and the response signals of CSA were captured by the smartphone systems. The principal component analysis (PCA) and hierarchical cluster analysis (HAC) were used to inquiry the...

Nowadays, progresses in data processing software have promoted the application of infrared (e.g., FT-IR, NIR, MIR), Raman, and hyperspectral imaging (HSI) techniques for quantitative analysis of biological material and/or aroma compounds in foods. In this review, applications of vibrational spectroscopy combined with chemometrics are summarized including analysis of total polyphenol, individual polyphenols, vitamins, and aromatic compounds in raw and some processed products. Laboratory-based and...

The marketability of blueberries over long distances has been limited because of their highly perishability. To prolong the postharvest shelf life and conserve quality properties of blueberry, various alternatives have been evaluated. We studied the influence of gum arabic (GA) alone or GA enhanced with African baobab (AB) fruit extract on blueberry during cold storage (4 °C) for 21 days. Physico-chemical properties (e.g. pH, color, firmness, and weight loss), microbial decay, antioxidant proper...

A smart handheld device based on colorimetric sensor array and smart cellphone was constructed to discriminate geographical origins of edible bird’s nest (EBN). Three hundred and twenty EBN samples were collected from Malaysia and Indonesia. The colorimetric sensor array consists of chemo-response dyes and was used to capture the odor molecule. The smart cellphone was used to obtain images and to extract red, green and blue colors using in-house software before and after contact with each sample...

The present work aimed at evaluating the efficacy of gum Arabic–based edible coating enriched with red and white roselle extracts, on the postharvest quality of blueberry fruits during storage at 4 ± 0.5 °C. Physicochemical, phytochemicals, antioxidant capability, decay percent, and microbiological analyses of coated and uncoated blueberries were performed. The change rates of polyphenol oxidase (PPO) and guaiacol peroxidase (POD) activity were also measured. The coatings (gum Arabic with or wit...

The feasibility of rapid identification of Lactobacillus species using near-infrared spectral features coupled with chemometrics was investigated. First, bacterial colonies of 11 Lactobacillus strains covering four species (Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus reuteri, Lactobacillus brevis, and Lactobacillus fermentum) were cultured using the spread-plate technique. Near-infrared spectra data of the Lactobacillus species were collected directly from the bacterial colonies. Second, 10 wavenumbers w...

Abstract The utilization of natural compounds to preserve fruit quality and extend the shelf life has gained great interest worldwide. African Baobab (AB) fruit (Adansonia digitata L.) produces some of these natural compounds, which contain several bioactive antioxidants with ascorbic acid being the major component. Sporidiobolus pararoseus Y16 combined with African Baobab extract (100 mg/ml) significantly inhibited the growth of Penicillium expansum infection than either yeast or African Baobab...

A comparative study of three chemometric algorithms combined with NIR spectroscopy with the aim of determining the best performing algorithm for quantitative prediction of iodine value, saponification value, free fatty acids content, and peroxide values of unrefined shea butter. Multivariate calibrations were developed for each parameter using supervised partial least squares, interval partial least squares, and genetic-algorithm partial least square regression methods to establish a linear rela...
