Abstract An Ultra-High Performance Liquid Chromatography combined with Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry (UHPLC–ToF-MS) method has been developed for determination of nine mycotoxins, namely aflatoxins (AFB1, AFB2, AFG1 and AFG2), ochratoxin A (OTA), zearalenone (ZEA), toxin T2 (T2) and fumonisins (FB1 and FB2) in maize. The method included a two-step extraction with acetonitrile 80% (v/v). After optimization, the analytical method was validated. The different concentrations tested take in accoun...
Abstract Tomato processing industries generate many byproducts that are mainly unexploited or underutilized. In order to convert tomato byproducts into added-value products, composite films made of sodium caseinate (NaCas), glycerol (25 wt%), and lipidic fraction of tomato pomace (LFTP) at different contents (0–40 wt%) were produced and characterized in terms of thermal stability, antioxidant activities, mechanical, hydrodynamic and optical properties. Our results showed that increasing LFTP con...

Abstract Biotechnology is an evolving research field that covers a broad range of topics. Here we aimed to evaluate the latest research literature, to identify prominent research themes, major contributors in terms of institutions, countries/regions, and journals. The Web of Science Core Collection online database was searched to retrieve biotechnology articles published since 2017. In total, 12,351 publications were identified and analyzed. Over 8,500 institutions contributed to these biotechno...

A biochip chemiluminescent immunoassay was validated for multi-mycotoxins screening in maize. Screened mycotoxins were aflatoxins B1 (AFB1) and G1 (AFG1) ochratoxin A (OTA), zearalenone (ZEA), toxin T2 (T2), fumonisins (sum of FB1 and FB2) and deoxynivalenol (DON). The method included a single extraction step with acetonitrile:methanol:water (50:40:10, v/v/v). Spiked samples were fortified at 250 μg/kg for FB1 + FB2, 1 μg/kg for AFB1 and AFG1, 1.5 μg/kg for OTA, 50 μg/kg for ZEA, 25 μg/kg for T2...

Active packaging is becoming progressively more significant as a response to the dynamic changes in current consumer demand and market tendencies. Active packaging is projected to interact directly with the packaged food or with the headspace within the package with the aim of maintaining or extending product quality and shelf-life. Aiming for sustainability, the potential application as biodegradable films of whey protein concentrate (WPC) was evaluated. Aromatic plant’s extracts present high a...

AbstractN-acetyl-5-methoxy-tryptamine (melatonin) is a natural substance produced both by plants, as a secondary metabolite, and animals, by the pineal gland and other tissues. In humans, melatonin participates in numerous functions including the regulation of mood, sleep, reproduction, promotion of immunomodulation, antioxidant defense and as an anti-inflammatory agent. The anti-inflammatory activity of melatonin could yield beneficial effects on intake, particularly against the chronic inflamm...

Abstract Background Tea is one of the most common functional drinks in our daily life. Emerging evidence from experimental, epidemiological, and interventional studies have shown that tea consumption is inversely associated with cardiovascular disease development by reducing cardiovascular risk factors, such as hyperlipidemia, hypertension, and hyperglycemia. Tea phytochemicals exert cardiovascular protection via its anti-LDL oxidation, anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-thrombotic, and endot...

Abstract Background About one-third of the world's food production is lost or wasted every year. Food waste is when foods, that are still good for human consumption, are thrown away by retailers or consumers, representing, according to FAO, 40% of food losses in developed countries. Frequently fruits reach the consumer in formulations such as juices and pastes instead of their whole form. The by-products of these formulations possess some powerful biological activities, making them potential sou...
