This study was carried out to investigate the antioxidant properties of synbiotic product, Lactobacillus acidophilus supplemented with 2.5% royal jelly in skim milk and Bifi dobacterium bifi dum supplemented with 7.5% royal jelly in skim milk, using DPPH (1,1-Diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl) radical scavenging assay, reducing power, total antioxidant in linoleic acid system and formation of diene-conjugation assay. Results showed that the synbiotic effect of royal jelly and probiotic bacteria provided substantial antioxidant activities. Milk samples fermented by B. bifi dum supplemented with 7.5% royal jelly and L. acidophilus supplemented with 2.5% royal jelly exhibited high scavenging activity with 96.8 and 93.3%, respectively, at a concentration of 500 μg/mL. IC50 values were estimated at 226.7 μg/mL for B. bifi dum supplemented with 7.5% royal jelly and at 210.2 μg/ml for L. acidophilus supplemented with 2.5% royal jelly. On the other hand, L. acidophilus supplemented with 2.5% royal jelly and B. bifi dum supplemented with 7.5% royal jelly exhibited signifi cantly high reducing power at a concentration of 1000 μg/mL. The percentages of peroxide inhibition of L. acidophilus supplemented with 2.5% royal jelly and B. bifi dum with 7.5% royal jelly were 52% and 42%, respectively. Signifi cant inhibitions were found in the formation of conjugated diene at 66.9% and 65.8% for L. acidophilus with 2.5% royal jelly and B. bifi dum with 7.5% royal jelly, respectively. These results were compared with standards BHT, ascorbic acid and Trolox. Original article Section: Food Chemistry

The objectives of this study were to determine phenolic content and antioxidant activities of chloroform, acetone, methanol and hot water extracts of Bauhinia vahlii leaves. The hot water extract afforded the highest yield (6.3%) while the lowest yield was obtained from the chloroform extract (2.1%). The methanol extract contains higher levels of total phenolics (48.7 ± 0.7 g GAE/100 g extract), tannins (21.7 ± 0.7 g GAE/100 g extract) and flavonoids (10.3 ± 0.2 RE/100 g extract). The extracts w...

Abstract Functional food is considered to be any food or food component that provides health benefits beyond basic nutrition. Recently, a great deal of interest has been paid by the consumers towards natural bioactive compounds as functional ingredients in the diets due to their various health beneficial effects. Notably, marine resources have been recognized as rich sources of structurally diverse biologically active compounds with great application potential in marine functional foods. Among t...

Thirty-four strains of lactic acid bacteria (seven Bifidobacterium, 11 Lactobacillus, six Lactococcus, and 10 Streptococcus thermophilus) were assayed in vitro for antioxidant activity against ascorbic and linolenic acid oxidation (TAAAA and TAALA), trolox-equivalent antioxidant capacity (TEAC), intracellular glutathione (TGSH), and superoxide dismutase (SOD). Wide dispersion of each of TAAAA, TAALA, TEAC, TGSH, and SOD occurred within bacterial groups, indicating that antioxidative properties a...

Total phenolic contents (TPC), total flavonoid contents (TFC), related antioxidative and antiradical capabilities of grape cane extracts from 11 varieties (five V. vinifera cultivars and six Chinese wild grapes) widely grown in China were evaluated. Antioxidant properties were determined as DPPH and ABTS radical-scavenging abilities, superoxide anion and hydroxyl radical and hydrogen peroxide scavenging assays, as well as reducing power. Phenolic profiles of the extracts were characterized by us...

The present paper presents the literature data regarding the chemical composition and antimicrobial activity of RoyalJelly. Royal Jelly is a secretion from the hypofaringeal glands of worker bees which serves as a food for queen beeand to the growing up larvae. Having biological properties already proven, Royal Jelly has considerable commercialappeal and is today used in many sectors (pharmaceutical, food industries and cosmetic products). Thephysicochemical composition of pure royal jelly are a...

Summary Eight Lactobacillus isolates obtained from five indigenous fermented foods (ogi, ogi baba, wara, kunnu and ugba) were investigated. Wara is a dairy-based food while the others are not dairy-based. The bacteria were isolated on MRS agar and purified by successive streaking on the same medium. The whey fraction of skimmed milk fermented with each isolate was assayed for radical scavenging effects using 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical. All the whey fractions showed radical scav...

The intestinal microbiota includes a diverse group of functional microorganisms, including candidate probiotics or viable microorganisms that benefit the host. Beneficial effects of probiotics include enhancing intestinal epithelial cell function, protecting against physiologic stress, modulating cytokine secretion profiles, influencing T lymphocyte populations, and enhancing antibody secretion. Probiotics have demonstrated significant potential as therapeutic options for a variety of diseases, ...

Cytochrome P450 monooxygenases (P450) in the honey bee, Apis mellifera , detoxify phytochemicals in honey and pollen. The flavonol quercetin is found ubiquitously and abundantly in pollen and frequently at lower concentrations in honey. Worker jelly consumed during the first 3 d of larval development typically contains flavonols at very low levels, however. RNA-Seq analysis of gene expression in neonates reared for three days on diets with and without quercetin revealed that, in addition to up-r...

Royal jelly (RJ) has been used since ancient times in traditional medicine. It is a honeybee hypopharyngeal and mandibular gland secretion of young workers called nurses, and is a yellowish, creamy, acidic material with a slightly pungent odor and taste. RJ is primarily involved in prolonging the lifespan of the queen bee and for feeding young larvae. The composition of RJ varies depending on seasonal and regional conditions; it may contain proteins, lipids, sugars, vitamins (A, B5, C, D, E) and...
