Abstract In this study, response surface methodology (RSM) and two artificial neural networks (ANN), multi-layer perceptron (MLP) and radial basis function (RBF), were used for the first time to model and optimize the extraction conditions of phenolic compounds in kidney beans in order to compare and establish effective prediction models. A total of 40 experiments were performed to screen for variables. The highest amount of polyphenols (917.2 mg GAE/100 g DW) and the strongest antioxidant activ...

Although spice extracts are well known to exhibit antibacterial properties, there is lack of a comprehensive evaluation of the antibacterial effect of spices against antibiotic-resistant bacteria. In the present study, ethanolic extracts from a total of 67 spices were comprehensively investigated for their in vitro antibacterial activities by agar well diffusion against two common food-borne bacteria, Staphylococcus aureus and Salmonella enteritidis, with multi-drug resistance. Results showed th...

The feasibility of improving the extraction rate of common bean antioxidants by ultrasonic treatment was investigated. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and spectrum Fourier transform infrared spectrophotometer (FT-IR) analysis revealed that ultrasonic treatment substantially altered the cellular structure of common bean seed, resulting in increased surface area, eroded cell walls, and greater exposure of cellulose and hemicellulose. The highest antioxidant activity was obtained at optimal extr...

AbstractEpigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is a natural phenolic compound found in many plants, especially in green tea, which is a popular and restorative beverage with many claimed health benefits such as antioxidant, anti-cancer, anti-microbial, anti-diabetic, and anti-obesity activities. Despite its great curative potential, the poor bioavailability of EGCG restricts its clinical applcation. However, nanoformulations of EGCG are emerging as new alternatives to traditional formulations. This rev...

Abstract Sprouted grains are widely consumed all over the world. Through simple sprouting procedures, many grains, including cereals and legumes, can develop improved nutritional value(s) in a short time. Understanding the main bioactive compounds of sprouted grains can be helpful to better utilize the sprouted grains as functional foods. Herein, we summarize recent studies on the content and composition of bioactive compounds in sprouted grains, focusing on vitamins, γ -aminobutyric acid, and p...

Tea and coffee are caffeinated beverages commonly consumed around the world in daily life. Tea from Camellia sinensis is widely available and is a good source of caffeine and other bioactive compounds (e.g., polyphenols and carotenoids). Other tea-like beverages, such as those from the genus Ilex, the large-leaved Kudingcha (Ilex latifolia Thunb and Ilex kudingcha C.J. Tseng), Yerba Mate (Ilex paraguariensis A. St.-Hil), Yaupon Holly (Ilex vomitoria), and Guayusa (Ilex guayusa Loes) are also tra...

Background: Carvacrol is an aromatic phenolic terpenoid widely existing in the volatile oils of thyme, oregano, and some other aromatic plants. Recent studies have found that carvacrol possesses excellent antibacterial activity. In order to provide an updated information about the antibacterial potentials of carvacrol, herein, we summarized recent publications about the antibacterial activity of carvacrol, with special attention paid to its antibacterial molecular mechanisms, including desruptin...
