Abstract Background Due to renowned medicinal properties, Ginger rhizomes (Zingiber officinale Roscoe) used traditionally in the treatment of arthritis, rheumatism, muscular aches, constipation, indigestion, hypertension, dementia, fever, and infectious diseases. As an antiemetic, Ginger is consumed by approximately 80% of pregnant women to treat nausea and vomiting of early pregnancy. Purpose The aim of this study is to evaluate the impact of ginger extract on the oestrous cycle and implantatio...

ABSTRACT Synthetic food additives generate a negative perception in consumers. Therefore, food manufacturers search for safer natural alternatives such as those involving phytochemicals and plant essential oils. These bioactive compounds have antimicrobial activities widely proven in in vitro tests. Foodborne diseases cause thousands of deaths and millions of infections every year, mainly due to pathogenic bacteria such as Salmonella spp., Campylobacter spp., Escherichia coli, Bacillus cereus, L...

Abstract Ethnopharmacological relevance Ginger ( Zingiber officinale Roscoe) is a well known anti-inflammatory drug in the Egyptian, Indian and Chinese folk medicines, yet its mechanism of action is unclear. Aim of the study To explore its mechanism of action and to correlate it to its biophytochemicals. Materials and methods Various extracts viz. water, 50%, 70%, 80%, and 90% ethanol were prepared from ginger rhizomes. Fractionation of the aqueous extract (AE) was accomplished using Diaion HP-2...

Abstract The objective of this study was to determine the potential use of Trans -cinnamaldehyde (TC), (−)-Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) and [10]-Gingerol (GI) to inhibit the growth of B. cereus in infant rice cereal reconstituted with infant formula. Samples were inoculated with either vegetative cells or spores of B. cereus (ATCC 14579), and they were treated with 500 ppm (mg/L) TC, EGCG and GI. They were stored at 7 °C, 23 °C, or 37 °C for 0, 4, 8 and 24 h to simulate advance preparation, h...

Abstract Nanoemulsion-based edible sodium caseinate coating containing ginger essential oil (GEO) (3 and 6% wt) was applied onto chicken breast fillet to extend its shelf life. GC-MS analysis showed that the most components of GEO were α-zingiberene (24.96%) and then β-sesquiphellandrene (12.74%). Comparison between conventional emulsion and nanoemulsion-based coatings was applied by particle size, polydispersity index and ζ-potential analyses. Antibacterial potential of active coatings was more...

Abstract Lipid oxidation—a major cause of food product deterioration—necessitates the use of food additives to inhibit food oxidation. Ginger extract (GE) has been reported to possess antioxidant properties. However, components isolated from ginger have been rarely reported to inhibit fat oxidation. Herein, antioxidant properties of GE and four pure components derived from it (6-gingerol, 8-gingerol, 10-gingerol, and 6-shogaol) were examined and their properties were compared to those of butylat...

Abstract The present paper aims to review the natural food preservatives with antimicrobial properties emphasizing their importance for the future of food manufacturing and consumers' health. The extraction procedures applied to natural antimicrobials will be considered, followed by the description of some natural preservatives' antimicrobial mechanism of action, including (i) membrane rupture with ATP-ase activity inhibition, (ii) leakage of essential biomolecules from the cell, (iii) disruptio...

Abstract The phenomenon of bioluminescence is the most widely investigated model of quorum sensing (QS) that occurs in various strains of Vibrio. Of lately, most of the virulence exhibited by other microbes is also attributed by similar quorum sensing pathways. Any leap towards blocking of such mechanisms is the need of the hour which is hypothesized to be achieved by interfering with normal QS interactions between ligands and their receptors. Gingerol, a pungent oil easily available from ginger...

Abstract The present study was designed to investigate the dietary effects of ginger extract (Zingiber officinale) on common carp (Cyprinus carpio). Three hundred and sixty fish weighing 10.9 ± 0.17g were randomly divided into four experimental treatments in triplicates. Four experimental diets were designed containing different inclusion levels of ginger extract as 0% (control), 0.1%, 0.2%, and 0.4% named T1, T2, T3, and T4, respectively, and fish were fed 3% of body weight daily for 60 days. F...

Abstract Good transparency, antimicrobial, physical, and tensile properties of the biodegradable film can be necessary for food packaging. The aim of this study is to characterize these properties of the PVA/GF bionanocomposite film. This nanofiber of 0.21, 0.31 and 0.41 g in suspensions, was mixed with PVA gel using ultrasonication. After addition of ginger nanofibers, the bionanocomposite film shows antibacterial activity but does not have fungi activity. Increasing the nanofiber into PVA incr...

For the first time, the pre- and post-harvest diseases of Mango (Mangifera indica L.) could be managed in an eco-friendly manner by utilization of botanicals extracts. Different concentrations (5, 7 and 8%) of botanicals of Indian lilac (Azadirachta indica), eucalyptus (Eucalyptus camaldulensis), garlic (Allium sativum), ginger (Zingiber officinale) and rubber bush (Calotropis procera) were utilized for spraying. After foliar application, at the pre-harvest stage of mango production, all of the ...
