Abstract This study aimed to evaluate the necessity of enzymatic hydrolysis for walnut peptide preparation based on a novel evaluation approach. Defatted walnut meal hydrolysate (DWMH) was prepared by hydrolyzing defatted walnut meal (DWM) with alcalase, and gastrointestinal digestion of DWM and DWMH was simulated in vitro using pepsin and pancreatin. The peptide and free amino acid (FAA) contents, angiotensin-I-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitory activity, 2,2-Diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) ra...
Abstract Ethnopharmacological relevance Mealworm larvae (MWL) (Tenebrio molitor) have been traditionally used in Asian countries for the treatment of liver diseases, including cancer. However, to date, there is marginal information on the mechanisms underlying the anticancer activity of MWL oil. Aim of the study This study aims to determine the in vitro effect of MWL oil on human hepatocellular carcinoma (HepG2) and colorectal adenocarcinoma (Caco-2) cells growth in order to produce insect-deriv...
Abstract The objective of this study was to evaluate the differences in ex-situ (starch treated by ultrasonication and oxidation sequentially, U-OS) and in-situ (starch treated by ultrasonication and oxidation simultaneously, UOS) ultrasonic assisted oxidation process of corn starch, which were studied in contrast to the traditional oxidized starches (OS). Fourier-transform infrared spectra confirmed the successful oxidation of all modified starches samples. In comparison to the OS, the carboxyl...

Abstract To ascertain the preliminary structural characteristics and biological activity of different fractions of polysaccharides from Sagittaria sagittifolia L. (SPCs) by ultrasonic assisted extraction (UAE), four new polysaccharides (SPC-60, SPC-70, SPC-80 and SPC-90) were successively fractionated by ethanol. The results implied that except for neutral sugar, four contained proteins and uronic acids in their structure, which were further confirmed by the ultraviolet and infrared spectra. Mol...
Abstract Herein Bacillus tequilensis was chosen as a representative strain isolated from aerogenic vinegar produced by solid-state fermentation (SSF) for the purpose of this research to elucidate the bacterial inactivation mechanisms of intense pulsed light (IPL) at cellular and molecular levels. The optimum sterilization conditions of IPL for this strain were obtained by using response surface methodology (RSM), resulting in an average lethality of 99.98%. The results showed that IPL at the opt...
Abstract Background Because of the important role of bioactive compounds in functional foods and health care, more and more attention has been paid to the active components extracted by green extraction methods. However, how to ensure the extraction yield and biological activity during the extraction process is an urgent problem to be solved. Subcritical water extraction (SWE) is a promising engineering method, which provides an environmentally friendly technology for extracting various bioactiv...

Abstract The objective of the current investigation was to assess the microbial quality, physicochemical parameters, volatiles profile and sensory quality of fresh-cut Chinese cabbage samples exposed to dual frequency ultrasound (DFU1: 20–40 kHz; DFU2: 20–60 kHz; and DFU3: 40–60 kHz) and triple frequency ultrasound (TFU: 20–40–60 kHz) washing processes. The natural microbiota (total bacteria, yeasts and molds), physicochemical quality (instrumental colour, texture, electrolyte leakage, and micro...
