Abstract Staphylococcus aureus, a foodborne pathogen, poses serious problems to the food industries owing to biofilm formation, and over 25% of the foodborne illnesses in China have been attributed to S. aureus only. Phytochemicals are widely used as anti-biofilm agents with promising efficacy, and most of them are widely available and safe. This study reported the anti-biofilm efficacy of (+)-nootkatone, a sesquiterpene ketone found in a common fruit grapefruit, against multidrug-resistant S. a...

Novel alternative antibacterial compounds have been persistently explored from plants as natural sources to overcome antibiotic resistance leading to serious foodborne bacterial illnesses. In this study, the ethanolic extracts from 239 traditional Chinese medicinal plants (TCMP)’ materials were screened to discover promising candidates that have strong antibacterial properties against multidrug-resistant Staphylococcus (S.) aureus and low cytotoxicity. The results revealed that 74 extracts exhib...

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 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...

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 ph...

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...
