The importance of key floral bioactive compounds to honey bees for the detection and attraction of hybrid vegetable crops and increased seed yield

BACKGROUND Crop breeding programmes generally select for traits for improved yield and human consumption preferences. Yet, they often overlook one fundamental trait essential for insect‐pollinated...

Effect of ultrasound dielectric pretreatment on the oxidation resistance of vacuum fried apple chips

BACKGROUND In order to investigate ultrasound dielectric pretreatment effect on oxidation resistance of vacuum fried apple chips, apple slices were pretreated at ultrasonic power for 150, 250 and...

The Effect of Greenhouse Covering Materials on Phytochemical Composition and Antioxidant Capacity of Tomato Cultivars

BACKGROUND The effect of light transmission (direct and diffuse) on the phenolic compounds of five tomato cultivars was investigated under controlled conditions in greenhouses covered with...

Solid state fermentation and crude cellulase based bioconversion of potential bamboo biomass to reducing sugar for bioenergy production

BACKGROUND Lignocellulosic biomass from bamboo appears as an attractive feedstock for bioethanol industry due to its high cellulosic content and fast growth rate. Therefore, powdery biomass was...

A novel, simple, economic and effective method for retarding maize tortilla staling

Background Staling of maize tortilla is a major drawback affecting their manufacture, commercialization and consumption. The development of methods that may help retard staling of maize tortilla...

Improved Potassium Nutrition Retrieves Phosphorus Induced Decrease in Uptake and Grain Zinc Concentration of Wheat

BACKGROUND The negative effect of soil applied phosphorus (P) on zinc (Zn) uptake by plants and concentration in food grains could be a possible reason of low dietary intake of Zn. Likewise its...

An ultrasensitive chemiluminescence immunoassay for fumonisin B1 detection in cereals based on gold‐coated magnetic nanoparticles

BACKGROUND In this work, a novel highly sensitive magnetic enzyme chemiluminescence immunoassay (MECLIA) was developed to detect fumonisin B1 (FB1) in cereal samples. The gold‐coated magnetic...
