Abstract Background There is a renewed interest in the utilisation of agricultural by-products, particularly those from crop plants, as a source of functional ingredients. The banana (Musa spp.) is a popular food crop worldwide but its inflorescence is often undervalued, similar to other agricultural by-products. As the banana inflorescence is traditionally consumed as food and medicine, it has the potential to be developed into functional foods. Scope and approach The present review systematica...

Mango (Mangifera indica L.) is respiratory climacteric fruit that ripens and decomposes quickly following their harvest. 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP) is known to affect the ripening of fruit, delaying the decay of mango stored under ambient conditions. The objective of this study was to clarify the role of 1-MCP in the regulation of ethylene biosynthesis and ethylene receptor gene expression in mango. 1-MCP significantly inhibited the 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic acid (ACC) content. The acti...

Abstract In this study, the phytochemical and essential oil profiles, and bioactivities of an underutilized wild fruit Cili (Rosa roxburghii) were analyzed. Cili fruit was found to have higher antioxidant activities, ascorbic acid content (122 mg LAA/g DW), total phenolics (173 mg GAE/g DW), and total flavonoids (34.5 mg CE/g DW) than 11 selected common fruits and vegetables. Thirty phytochemical compounds were tentatively identified in the aqueous-ethanolic extract of Cili fruit using UPLC-QTOF...

Abstract Carotenoids from different food sources particularly fruits and vegetables are an important contributor to a healthy diet. These compounds have been associated with the reduced risks of several diseases such as cancer, cataracts, and macular degradations. Due to their multiple health prospects, carotenoids gain significant interest in the pharmaceutical and food industries. The composition and bioavailability of the carotenoids in food are significantly influenced by the method of extra...

Abstract Alternanthera sessilis (red) is an edible herb used by Malaysians to alleviate hyperlipidaemia. This study aimed to produce phytochemical- and antioxidant-rich A. sessilis (red) whole plant extracts using multiple extraction conditions. The lipid-lowering effects of the extracts against steatosis in HepG2 cells were assessed. Ethanolic extracts (100%, 50 °C, 24 h) showed the highest total phenolic content (83.5 mg GAE/g extract) while water extracts (50 °C, 24 h) had the highest extract...

Abstract Research is ongoing to develop and discover new medicinal products and new medicinal crops, as evidenced by a rapid increase in the number of scientific publications. Malaysia and the tropical regions are rich in flora and fauna, however, only a limited number of species have been scientifically researched and fully commercialised. This review described an indigenous plant named Barringtonia, which is less researched but nonetheless has great potential to be developed and commercialised...

Abstract Alternanthera sessilis (red) (ASR) is an edible herbal plant with many beneficial health effects. This study aimed to investigate the antioxidant components and antioxidant activities of the edible leaves and stems of ASR extracted using solvent of varying polarities namely water, ethanol, ethyl acetate and hexane. ASR leaf extracts showed higher in both antioxidant components and activities than the stem extracts. Among the antioxidant components, the ethanol leaf extract showed higher...

This study investigated the recovery of phytochemical antioxidants in Dacryodes rostrata fruit using different extraction solvents. The effects of solvent of varying polarities with sequential extraction method on the recovery of phenolics, flavonoids, carotenoids and anthocyanins from different parts of the fruit (seed, pulp and peel) were determined. Their antioxidant activities were further determined using DPPH radical, ferric reducing antioxidant power (FRAP), hydroxyl radical scavenging, s...
