In this paper, several yeast extracts (YE) were taken as the main material to explore their function in salt reduction and effect in reducing salt in stock flavoring powder. Firstly, through physical and chemical index detection of different YE and comparative sensory analysis of saltiness intensity, the optimal effect of salt reduction YE was determined; then the molecular weight distribution of the peptide was detected, and different peptides were applied in the compound salt reduction model solution to explore the mechanism of salt reduction; finally, the effect of salt reducing was verified in the stock flavoring powder. According to the results, it showed that there were differences in salt reduction effect and flavor modification effect of different yeast extracts on low sodium salt, among which strong YE-2 had a better effect of reducing 20% salt in model experiment than other test YE. The components of 1000~2000 Da peptide in dense YE-2 had a significant sense of denseness and effect in saltiness enhancement. The application of strong YE-2 in the seasoning of stock powder could help reduce salt, improve umami taste and strong taste, and enhance the sense of overall coordination. YE products with stronger salt-reducing effect can be developed by increasing the content of 1000~2000 Da peptides in YE-2 products.

In order to understand the effects of different processes on the nutritional quality and flavor characteristics of fish head soup, this experiment used the bone and flesh mud of the head of the leather catfish as the raw material, used ordinary boil (OB) and ultrasound-assisted ordinary boil (U-OB), enzymatic hydrolysis (Eh) and ultrasonic-assisted enzymatic hydrolysis (U-Eh) four processes to prepare four groups of fish head soup, and nutrition, GC-MS, GC-IMS, and electronic nose were analyzed. The test results showed that the water-soluble protein content of ultrasonic-assisted treatment (U-OB) was significantly higher than that of the non-ultrasonic treatment group (OB); The calcium content and selenium content in the Eh and U-Eh groups were significantly higher compared with OB and U-OB; The amino acid content of Eh and U-Eh was much higher than that of OB and U-OB, but the content of bitter amino acids was higher than that of umami and sweet amino acids. Taurine, carnosine and other substances were also detected in fish head soup. The results of the electronic nose showed that the odors of the four fish head soups were clearly distinguished, and there was no overlap. The U-Eh flavor profile was far away from the other three samples, and the flavor was relatively rich; GC-IMS technology identified 33 substances, mainly aldehydes and ketones. Compared between OB and U-OB and between Eh and U-Eh, their volatile organic compounds (VOCs) were similar in type but different in content. The common VOCs among the four groups of samples were only nonanal (dimer), 2-heptanone, nonanal (monomer), all of which had a good modification effect on the flavor of fish head soup.

In order to improve the quality of fresh-cut apples and prolong the shelf life, the optimal parameters and fresh-keeping effect of ultrasonic-ε-polylysine hydrochloride compound treatment of fresh-cut apple were explored. Box-Behnken design was used to determine the optimal parameters of ultrasonic-ε-polylysine hydrochloride compound treatment of fresh-cut apples with the growth of the total number of colonies as the response value by response surface method. According to the results of the total number of colonies, mold and yeast, color difference and VC content, the fresh-keeping effect of ultrasonic-ε-polylysine hydrochloride compound treatment on fresh-cut apples during storage was evaluated. The results showed that the optimal parameters of ultrasonic-ε-polylysine hydrochloride compound treatment for fresh-cut apples were as follows: Ultrasonic time 10 min, ultrasonic temperature 40 ℃, ε-polylysine hydrochloride concentration 0.2 g/L. The actual values of before and after cutting were 1.59 lg CFU/g and 1.71 lg CFU/g, respectively, and the relative errors with the predicted values were 3.92% and 5.59%, respectively, indicating the high degree of fitting and reliability of the models. During storage at 4 ℃, the growth rates of bacteria, mold and yeast in the fresh-cut apples treated with optimized conditions were significantly lower than that in the CK (P<0.05), and VC was not significantly damaged. The color difference rise rate was lower in the ultrasound-ε-polylysine hydrochloride compound treatment group before cutting than that of the CK. The combined treatment of fresh-cut apples with ultrasonic-ε-polylysine hydrochloride optimized by response surface method was feasible, and the effect of ultrasonic treatment before cutting was better, and the shelf life was longer 4 days than that of the CK.

Objective: To explore a rapid determination method of heavy metal contaminated shellfish based on enzymatic hydrolysis and temperature-dependent near infrared spectroscopy. Methods: Shellfish of Tegillarca granosa was reared artificially and used in this paper. Three heavy metals, including copper (Cu), cadmium (Cd) and lead (Pb), were used to contaminate Tegillarca granosa. The full protein supernatant samples of heavy metal-contaminated and healthy Tegillarca granosa were extracted by enzymolysis and centrifugation pretreatments. Fourier transform near-infrared spectroscopy (FT-NIR) was employed to collect spectra of each sample under the process of elevating temperature with each 5 ℃ interval in the range of 25~60 ℃, and a discriminant model was constructed to distinguish these samples contaminated with heavy metals. Results: Partial least square-discrimination analysis (PLS-DA) was used to identify the heavy metals contaminated Tegillarca granosa under each temperature. The accuracy rate was influenced by the temperature first increasing and then decreasing with raising the temperature. When the temperature of sample was kept at 40 ℃, the accuracy of discriminant model was 92%, and it can be improved up to 98% by the optimized parameters through variable selection methods. Conclusion: With the help of chemo-metrics, near infrared spectroscopy and enzymatic hydrolysis, the heavy metals-contaminated Tegillarca granosa can be quickly identified and the detection methods of heavy metal pollution of shellfish can be enriched.

This paper studied the influence of salt concentration on the volatile flavor compounds during the fermentation of Northeast farmhouse soybean paste. HS-SPME-GC-MS combined with electronic nose technology were used to analyze the changes of volatile flavor substances and flavor characteristics of soybean paste with different salt concentrations (8%, 10%, 12%) during the fermentation process (0, 30, 60 d). The differences between samples were statistically analyzed through PCA and cluster analysis. The results of HS-SPME-GC-MS showed that there were 2 flavors with OAV≥0.1 at 0 days of fermentation. At the time of 30 days, 8%, 10% and 12% salt concentration samples of flavor substances with OAV≥0.1 increased to 12, 8 and 8, respectively. At the time of 60 days, 8%, 10% and 12% salt concentration samples of the flavor substances with OAV≥0.1 increased to 19, 11 and 10, respectively. And the OAV values of most flavor substances decreased with the increase of salt concentration. This indicated that salt concentration affected the type and content of volatile flavor compounds. The results of the electronic nose showed that the increase in salt concentration would promote the production of organic sulfur compounds and inhibit the production of alkanes, alcohols and hydride compounds. With the extension of the fermentation time, the methyl, alcohol, aldehyde and ketone compounds in the soybean paste would gradually increase, while the ammonia, short-chain alkanes and organic sulfides would gradually decrease. The results of PCA and cluster analysis showed that the difference between samples with different salt concentrations fermented for 0 days was very small, and with the extension of the fermentation time, the difference between the soybean paste with different salt concentrations would become more and more significant. To sum up, the salt concentration has a significant effect on the volatile flavor components in the Northeast farmhouse soybean paste.

Abstract(3) HTML](8) PDF(2)
The effect of exogenous γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and GABA synthesis inhibitor 3-mercaptopropionic acid (3-MP) on GABA metabolism and quality in fresh-cut pumpkin was investigated, and the possible mechanism was studied. The results indicated that exogenous GABA induced the accumulation of endogenous GABA and promoted the conversion of glutamic acid to GABA in fresh-cut pumpkin through the catalytic conversion of highly active glutamate decarboxylase (GAD). The 3-MP-treated pumpkin retained lower GABA content than the control, and the activities of GAD and GABA transaminase (GABA-T) were inhibited. The GABA-treated pumpkins possessed relatively lower polyamines (putrescine, spermine and spermidine) contents in comparison with the control during storage. 3-MP treatment restrained the activities of polyamine oxidase (PAO), diamine oxidase (DAO) and amino aldehyde decarboxylase (AMADH). These results demonstrated that GABA treatment could activate the polyamine degradation pathway and promote GABA enrichment in pumpkin. Meanwhile, no significant differences in maximum colony count, color, β-carotene content and soluble solids content were observed among treatments during storage, which suggested that exogenous GABA had little effect on the quality of fresh-cut pumpkin.

In order to screen and verify the key genes that isomaltulose reduces liver fat accumulation in mice, in this study, the Limma package was used to analyze the liver transcriptome data of male mice fed with isomaltose and sucrose for 22 weeks (GSE54723, n=14). A total of 49 DEGs were screened out, and then were analyzed by Metascape software for GO functional enrichment analysis and KEGG signaling pathways analysis. Cytoscape and WGCNA software were used to construct gene co-expression network, overlapping genes were picked up for searching for key node genes, and 10 key node genes Pnliprp1, Prss2, Clps, Tff2, Pnlip, Ctrl, Cpa1, Cel, Dmbt1, Vil1 were screened out, gene functional analysis showed Pnlip, Pnliprp1, Cel, Clps were related to lipid metabolism. The qPCR results showed that the expression of these four genes related to lipid metabolism in liver tissue of isomaltulose group was significantly (P<0.05) higher than that of sucrose group, by comparing the expression of the above genes in the liver transcriptome data of normal people and NAFLD patients (GSE163211, n=318), Pnlip, Pnliprp1, Cel and Clps were also expressed significantly higher in normal people than in NAFLD patients. This study revealed that isomaltulose promoted lipolysis by up regulating the synthesis of Pnlip, Pnliprp1, Cel and Clps, so as to reduce the accumulation of liver lipids, which would provide a theoretical support for the study of the molecular mechanism of isomaltulose affecting liver lipid metabolism.

Abstract(9) HTML(2) PDF(2)
In order to explore the effect of edible mushroom on the protein flavor adsorption capacity of meat products, beef myofibrillar protein (MP) was treated with Volvariella volvacea extract (VV) and the changes of MP protein intermolecular force and flavor adsorption capacity before and after VV treated were analyzed. The results showed that the extract improved the adsorption capacity of MP to phenylacetaldehyde, 1-octen-3-ol, 2-heptanone, benzaldehyde and D-limonene in different degrees. After VV incorporated, the proportion of the above flavor substances in the MP-extract system decreased by 2.09%, 6.1%, 6.41%, 9.85% and 11.66%, respectively, compared with the untreated group. Urea, guanidine hydrochloride, propylene glycol and β-mercaptoethanol were used to destroy the protein interaction force, and it was found that the hydrophobic force between protein molecules played a dominant role in the process of flavor adsorption, followed by hydrogen bond, covalent bond and ionic bond. VV may improve the adsorption capacity of MP on 2-heptanone, 1-octen-3-ol and D-limonene by enhancing the non-covalent bond between MP molecules, and improve the adsorption capacity of MP on benzaldehyde by enhancing the covalent interaction between MP molecules.

Abstract(10) HTML(2) PDF(0)
This paper aimed to study the extraction and purification of phycocyanin from Synechococcus sp. PCC7002 (hereinafter referred to as “Synechococcus”) and its heat-induced fading mechanism. Phycocyanin was extracted and purified through high-pressure homogenization, chitosan flocculation and ammonium sulfate salting out. And its fading mechanism during heat treatment (50 ℃, 60 ℃, 70 ℃, 80 ℃, 90 ℃, 30 min) was studied by color index, UV-Vis spectrum, fluorescence emission spectrum, particle size and potential, FTIR spectrum and SDS-PAGE electrophoresis. The results showed that optimal extraction conditions of phycocyanin were to dissolve algal power in 0.04 mol/L NaCl solution to make the concentration reach 2 mg/mL and homogenize it at 80 MPa for 7 min, and the resulting yield of phycocyanin was 10.5081%±0.0936%. After flocculation by 0.15 mg/mL chitosan and salting out by 50% saturated ammonium sulfate, phycocyanin purity could be increased from 0.6950 ± 0.0043 to 1.9084±0.2621. Further research on thermal-induced fading mechanism of phycocyanin found: Destruction of spatial structure of the apoprotein started from 60 ℃, which led to transformation of natural conformation of phycocyanobilin chromophore maintained by protein backbone and a significant decrease in ultraviolet absorption and characteristic fluorescence of phycocyanin, therefore blue hue of phycocyanin was greatly destroyed. Particle size results indicated that phycocyanin molecules began to aggregate at 60 ℃, while larger aggregates formed at 80 ℃ may lead tetrapyrrole chromophore to be buried in it, deepening fading degree of phycocyanin color. In addition, FTIR spectroscopy and SDS-PAGE indicated that β subunit of phycocyanin was probably damaged more serious than α subunit during heat treatment, and the damaged structure were mainly α-helix. In summary, maintaining structural stability of apoprotein or protein segment near the phycocyanin chromophore was the key factor of keeping phycocyanin tone stable during the heat treatment. This research would provide certain theoretical basis for the study of phycocyanin color protection technology during the heat treatment process.

In order to explore the effect of key technology on crayfish product quality, crayfish was used as raw material through texture analysis, low field nuclear magnetic resonance and sensory evaluation methods. The water-retaining agent (1%, 1.5% phosphate-free water-retaining agent and 1.2% sodium bicarbonate+4% trehalose), drying conditions (temperature: 70, 80, 90 ℃. Time: 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2 h) and sterilization conditions (100, 115, 121 ℃, 15 min) on its moisture, texture properties and sensory scores were researched, while to optimize the processing technology of flexible packaged ready-to-eat crayfish and explore the relationship between moisture and texture. The results showed that the addition of water-retaining agent (1.2% sodium bicarbonate+4% trehalose) increased the content of non-flowing water and free water in crayfish meat, significantly improved the water holding capacity of crayfish meat, and reduced crayfish meat hardness (P<0.05), and with the increasing of drying temperature and time, the moisture content of crayfish meat decreased significantly (P<0.05), and the hardness and chewiness increased. While too high sterilization temperature destroyed the internal fiber structure of crayfish meat, resulting in poor chewiness of crayfish meat. The results also showed that the water content of crayfish meat products significantly affected the quality of crayfish products, and the optimum processing conditions of ready-to-eat crayfish were determined, that was, the sensory quality of crayfish meat was better when adding water-retaining agent (1.2% sodium bicarbonate+4% trehalose) and drying at 70 ℃ for 1 h and sterilizing 15 min at 115 ℃, and increased pyrazine compounds which had the unique flavor of fried crayfish. The research results could provide theoretical reference for the quality improvement and industrialization of ready-to-eat crayfish in soft packaging.

The nutritional composition, physicochemical indexes and harmful substance contents of flaxseed oil during frying process under conventional frying condition were studied in this paper, and its frying performance was comprehensively analyzed by principal component analysis. The results showed that the unsaturation of flaxseed oil without frying was 81.77%. The content of α-linolenic acid was 47.50%, which was a kind of high nutritional value edible oil. During the 60 h (5 d)170 ℃ continuous frying, the color, acid value, peroxide value, refractive index, carbonyl value, polar components, tocopherol content and fatty acid composition of flaxseed oil changed significantly (P<0.05) , and there was no Benzo (α) pyrene produced in the whole frying process. The content of five main fatty acids (α-linolenic acid, oleic acid, linoleic acid, palmitic acid and stearic acid) all showed downward trend, and the content of five saturated fatty acids which were below C17:0 (octanoic acid, capric acid, lauric acid, myristic acid and palmitic acid) increased gradually with frying time extended, the content of other fatty acids decreased. The analysis of frying performance showed that the acid value of flaxseed oil after 35 h frying had exceeded the national limit, and other indexes were within the national limits. Frying for 30 h had basically reached the frying limit of flaxseed oil. It would not be recommended to use flaxseed oil for frying beyond the limit, it would be a healthy frying oil within 30 h.

Abstract(5) HTML(5) PDF(1)
In this paper, the oil-in-water Pickering emulsion of citral was prepared by a high-speed homogenization method with β-cyclodextrin as emulsifier and xanthan gum as external phase stabilizer, and the emulsion obtained was mixed with chitosan solution to make citral emulsion film by the casting method, then the effects of xanthan gum on the preparation and characteristics of the emulsion film were investigated. The results showed that the addition of 0.2% and 0.4% xanthan gum in the emulsion could reduce the particle size of citral droplets in the film from 2.06 μm to 0.71 and 0.61 μm, respectively, effectively increase the distribution density of oil droplets and prevent the occurrence of oil separation in the process of emulsion film making, and at the same time, the light transmittance of the emulsion film increased from 39% to 43%~44%. Compared with the films without xanthan gum, although the water vapor permeability of the films with 0.2% and 0.4% xanthan gum was increased from 12.02 g·mm/(dm2kPa) to 13.58 and 14.32 g·mm/(dm2kPa), respectively, the tensile strength of the film was improved from 5.85 MPa to 6.96 and 8.77 MPa, respectively, and the elongation at break of the film was also enhanced from 28.87% to 29.43% and 32.16%, respectively, indicating that the addition of xanthan gum in the emulsion could significantly improve the mechanical properties while also reduced the moisture resistance of the film. The citral release experiment of the film showed that the addition of xanthan gum could enhance the slow release effect of citral from the emulsion film.

Hong Guo Shen Guo (HGSG) are the fruits of Campanumoea lancifolia (Roxb.) Merr, which are mainly cultivated in Southwest China. This study was to investigate the ingredients from HGSG extracts and their α-glucosidase inhibition in vitro. The contents of polysaccharide, total flavonoids, total anthocyanins and total phenols in extracts from HGSG were measured using UV spectrophotometry. Chemical ingredients were further analyzed applying ultra-high performance liquid chromatography-time of flight-tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-QTOF-MS). The results showed that the content of crude polysaccharide in five batches of HGSG was 27.59%~37.59%. The total flavone content of ethanol extract was 1.22%~1.77%, the total anthocyanin content was 0.90%~1.14%, and the total polyphenol content was 13.11%~18.85%. Twenty one compounds were identified from HGSG, including 10 flavonoids, 3 phenolic acids, 3 organic acids, 3 anthocyanins, 1 amino acid and 1 polyacetylene. The ethanol extract, crude polysaccharide and luteolin of HGSG exhibited potent α-glucosidase inhibitory activities with IC50 values of 7.52, 37.43 and 8.03 μg/mL, respectively, which were significantly higher than that of acarbose (616.17 μg/mL). This study preliminarily defined the material basis of HGSG, and reported for the first time that HGSG had potential anti diabetes activity, which would provide a theoretical reference for the development and utilization of HGSG.

The design of enzyme-carrier complexes with high stability and selectivity is the focus of research in the field of immobilized enzymes. In this study, magnetic nanoparticles were prepared by precipitation using epichlorohydrin as surfactant and coated with chitosan to immobilize cellulase. Scanning electron microscope (SEM), vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM) and Fourier transform infrared spectrometer (FTIR infrared spectroscopy) were used to characterize Fe3O4 chitosan magnetic nanoparticles, and the characterization and enzymatic properties of immobilized cellulase were studied. Results showed that the prepared magnetic nanoparticles were crystallographically intact and the cellulase was effectively immobilized on the Fe3O4-chitosan carrier surface. In addition, immobilised cellulase had better acid-base stability and thermal stability than free cellulase. It had good activity in the range of pH2~9, and also with better thermostability, remained nearly 50% activity for 4 h at 60 and 70 ℃. After 10 cycles of recycling, the immobilized cellulase remained at a high activity of 52.6%, indicating that Fe3O4-chitosan could be used as an effective carrier for immobilized cellulase, providing a reference for further applications of the immobilized enzyme.

Refined conditions of konjac glucomannan (KGM), physicochemical properties and structural characterization of KGM before and after refining and its blend with κ-carrageenan were explored in this study. Furthermore, the correlation between physicochemical properties of KGM and gel properties of the blend was also determined. The result showed that refined conditions of KGM were as follows: Refined ethanol concentration 60%, swelling time 2 h, swelling temperature 50 ℃. With this treatment, the glucomannan content, viscosity, brightness and whiteness of KGM were increased by 34.43%, 128.55%, 17.94% and 28.29%, respectively. Gel strength, hardness, chewiness and gumminess of its blend with κ-carrageenan were significantly increased by 47.39%, 60.47%, 55.44%, and 45.87%(P < 0.05), respectively. The best gel properties of the blend were obtained with the enhanced hydrogen bond force, smoother and tighter gel network structure. In addition, physicochemical properties of KGM e.g. glucomannan content, viscosity, color and flavor were considered to be the key factors to improve quality of the blend gel. This study could provide an efficient and simple refined method for development of KGM and carrageenan blend with high gel strength, and lay a theoretical foundation for the industrial production of refined KGM in future.

Abstract(7) HTML(2) PDF(2)
In order to study the effects of heat treatment and antioxidant addition on the digestive characteristics of meat oil of Antarctic krill, an in vitro gastrointestinal digestion model was established to measue the changes of peroxide value, acid value, malondialdehyde content, astaxanthin content and fatty acid composition of the oil in untreated blank group, 85 ℃ heat treatment group and 85 ℃ heat treatment with tert-butylhydroquinone (TBHQ) group after digestion. The results showed as follows: After gastrointestinal digestion, the peroxide value, acid value and malondialdehyde content of oil in blank group significantly increased (P<0.05), while astaxanthin content significantly decreased (P<0.05), fatty acid composition had no significant change, indicating that gastrointestinal digestion could accelerate the primary and secondary oxidation processes of oil. The changes of peroxide value, malondialdehyde content, acid value, astaxanthin content and fatty acid composition of oil digested by gastrointestinal tract in the 85 ℃ heat treatment group were basically consistent with that in the blank group. However, compared with the blank group, the malondialdehyde content in the 85 ℃ heat treatment group was significantly higher than that in the blank group after intestinal digestion (P<0.05), indicating that the 85 ℃ heat treatment accelerated the secondary oxidation process of lipid digestion. The changes of peroxide value, malondialdehyde content, acid value, astaxanthin content and fatty acid composition in TBHQ group after gastrointestinal digestion were basically consistent with those in 85 ℃ heat treatment group. However, after digestion by gastrointestinal tract, the peroxide value and malondialdehyde content decreased, indicating that TBHQ played an antioxidant role in this process. These results indicated that the gastrointestinal digestion process promoted the oxidation of meat oil of Antarctic krill, and heat treatment intensified the secondary oxidation process of meat oil of Antarctic krill in the gastrointestinal tract, and the addition of TBHQ could effectively slow down the oxidation of oil caused by heat treatment in the gastrointestinal tract.

In order to improve the stability and water solubility of astaxanthin, the snailase was used for the wall-breaking extraction of astaxanthin from Haematococcus pluvialis, and gum arabic and whey protein powder (rich in milk fat globule membrane) were used as wall materials to prepare astaxanthin nanoparticles using a complex coacervation method, in addition, the stability of the nanoparticles was investigated. The results showed that the optimum conditions for the preparation of astaxanthin nanoparticles were pH4.0, protein/gum arabic mass ratio of 2:1 and astaxanthin concentration of 60 μmol/L. The encapsulation rate of astaxanthin under these conditions was 92.93%±0.19%. The average particle size was 265.71±0.55 nm and the Zeta potential was ?13.44±0.14 mV. The nanoparticles showed good storage stability with only 6.1% increased in size, 90.78%±0.25% retention of astaxanthin and 79.31%±0.18% clearance of DPPH after 15 d storage at 4 ℃. This study would improve the stability and water solubility of astaxanthin and provide technical support for the efficient utilization of astaxanthin.

The activity of probiotic products would reduce to a certain extent during storage and in the gastrointestinal tract, resulting in weakened potential probiotic properties, in this study, Lactobacillus fermentum LTP1332 from the feces of centenarians in Bama, Guangxi was microencapsulated. In this experiment, gelatin (GEL) and chitosan (CS) were introduced for compounding based on sodium alginate (SA) and CaCl2 as the main wall materials. The key factors affecting the embedding rate were found by single-factor test, the radial basis function (RBF) was constructed by using Box-Behnken design (BBD), and the encapsulation process of Lactobacillus fermentum LTP1332 microcapsules was optimized by using genetic algorithms (GA). The optimized capsules were characterized using SEM scanning electron microscopy and other methods, and the in vitro simulated digestion tests was carried out. Results showed that, the optimum preparation parameters of the microcapsule were as follows: 2.210% sodium alginate, 4.451% CaCl2, 0.1% gelatin, 13.529 min curing time. Under such conditions, the measured average embedding rate was 95.08%±0.25%. The cell survival rate of CS-GEL-SA microcapsule under the optimized processing conditions could still reach 22.48%±0.78% after being treated with simulated gastric juice for 120 min. The maximum rate of probiotic release could be reached at 90 min of digestion with simulated intestinal juice, which had good intestinal solubility. Therefore, it is considered that the long-lived elderly source probiotic microcapsule prepared under this processing condition would have a good bacterial protection effect and good prospects in development and application.

Abstract(8) HTML(3) PDF(1)
Objective: To study phage applications in the control of bacteria contaminations, Pseudomonas aeruginosa phage K4 was characterized for its biological characteristics and inhibition effects of bacterial growth. Methods: One-step growth curve, phage stability, genome sequencing, comparative genomics analysis, and growth inhibition curve were conducted in this work. Results: One-step growth curve showed that phage K4 had a latent phase of 15 min and a burst size of about 85 PFU/infection center, displaying a strong infectivity. Under different MOIs (multiplicity of infection), phage K4 efficiently inhibited the growth of the host cells. Genomic analysis revealed that phage K4 had a genome of 50358 bp with 77 coding sequences and 1 tRNA-Arg gene. Comparative genomics showed that the genome of phage K4 shared an identity of 95.08% with Pseudomonas virus PA11 which belongs to the Paundecimvirus genus of the Zobellviridae family, suggesting that phage K4 might be a new member of the Paundecimvirus genus. In application assays, phage K4 could significantly control the growth of the host cells in sterilized milk and ready-to-eat beef samples along with obvious reproductions of phage K4. In conclusion, the data suggested that phage K4 was a lytic virus that replicated rapidly with relatively high bactericidal activity. Conclusion: The genome of phage K4 did not carry genes for integration, antibiotic resistance, and virulence, appropriately to be selected as a biocontrol agent in the control and prevention of P. aeruginosa contaminations in foods.

Based on the Illumina Miseq sequencing technology, the bacterial and fungal flora of the fresh Chaotian pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) and the line pepper (Capsicum frutescens L.) in Shandong and Shanxi province were sequenced during origin pre-processing. The diversity of bacterial and fungal community structure was analyzed, and the rationality and scientific of processing technology in different producing areas were also discussed. The results showed that the bacterial and fungal flora attached to the raw materials of the two red peppers were significantly different (P<0.05). After salting process, there were still significant differences in bacterial flora between the two kinds of pepper, while the differences in fungal flora gradually decreased with the progress of processing. According to the results of the count of cultivable microorganisms, the number of cultivable bacteria and fungi in the line pepper samples increased to 2.6×106 and 1.6×106 CFU/g after two-stage cleaning. However, in Chaotian pepper samples, the number of culturable bacteria and fungi after cleaning decreased to 9.0×104 and 6.6×103 CFU/g, respectively. It indicated that the same equipment was used to clean the line pepper with low applicability, resulting in the accumulation of microorganisms during the cleaning process. After salt mixing, the number of culturable bacteria and fungi decreased to 102~104 CFU/g. This study would reveal the community structure and diversity of microorganism during the primary processing of fresh red pepper, and provide a scientific basis for improving the processing level, the optimization of equipment, and quality control.

Abstract(10) HTML(1) PDF(2)
Lactobacillus casei HDS-01, isolated from spent brine from sauerkraut, was added to construct a microbial ecosystem for sauerkraut fermentation. High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), acid-base titration, high-throughput sequencing and real-time quantitative PCR were adopted in combination with traditional enzymatic analysis to investigate the dynamic changes of physicochemical properties and bacterial communities during sauerkraut fermentation. Meanwile, sensory quality and safety of the sauerkraut were evaluated. Results showed that the pH of fermented sauerkraut with L. casei HDS-01 decreased to 3.15±0.08 on the third day and the lactic acid bacteria count was (7.63±0.19) lg CFU/mL at the beginning of fermentation. The key enzyme activities of the lactic acid metabolic pathway were higher in all periods of L. casei HDS-01 fermented sauerkraut than in natural fermented sauerkraut (P<0.05). At the end of fermentation, the lactic acid, total acid and VC contents were (7.88±0.38), (8.45±0.38) g/L and (445.02±10.53) mg/kg, respectively, and the nitrite content was (1.55±0.86) mg/kg. Sensory evaluation of sauerkraut samples showed that L. casei HDS-01 fermented sauerkraut was superior to naturally fermented sauerkraut in terms of clarity of fermentation broth, color, aroma, taste and crispness of sauerkraut. In addition, Lactobacillus remained consistently dominant in L. casei HDS-01 fermented sauerkraut (63.36% to 95.79%), reducing the abundance of pathogenic bacteria such as Enterobacter spp. (0.04% to 2.26%) and Pseudomonas spp. (0.28% to 25.84%), which regulated the diversity of flora and shortened the fermentation process. This study would have important practical significance for the development of strain resources and functional bacteria for fermentation.

In order to determine the suitable cooking time of Morchella soup, the sensory indexes, volatile flavor substances and amino acids of Morchella soup boiled for 20, 40, 60 and 120 min were quantitatively analyzed. The results show that the color, smell and taste of Morchella soup were the best and the score was the highest when boiled for 40 min, and the score was significantly higher than that of other cooking time (P<0.05). A total of 49 volatile flavor compounds were detected in the cooking process. 22, 35, 31 and 27 kinds were identified in the Morchella soup cooked for 20, 40, 60 and 120 min respectively. The total quality of aldehydes, acids, esters and hydrocarbons reached the highest at 40 min(P<0.05), reaching 171.93, 163.5, 245.89 and 34.35 mg/g respectively. The total content of fresh amino acids was the highest at 40 min, which was 21.54 mg/g. The content of total amino acids was the highest at 70.20 mg/g after 40 min of cooking, indicating that 40 min of cooking was the peak period of amino acid dissolution. The sensory index score, the kinds and total volatile flavor substances, and the contents and dissolution of amino acids in morchella soup increased during 0~40 min of cooking, decreased gradually during 40~60 min of cooking, and decreased sharply after 60 min of cooking. Too short or too long cooking time was not conducive to the presentation of volatile flavor substances and various amino acids. Under the experimental conditions, the cooking time of Morchella soup should be 40 min, and it was recommended not to exceed 60 min. This paper would provide a theoretical basis for the cooking time of Morchella soup.

Abstract(13) HTML(3) PDF(2)
The place of production is closely related to the quality, safety and nutritional quality of Lanzhou lily (Lilium davidii var. unicolor), and its geographical origin traceability and origin confirmation is beneficial to the implementation of the protection of the place of production, the fidelity of characteristic products and the sustainable development of the industry. In this study, isotope ratio mass spectrometry (IRMS) and inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) were used to determine the ratios of 3 stable isotopes (δ13C, δ15N, δ18O) and the content of 16 mineral elements (K, Mg, Ca, Na, B, Fe, Zn, Al, Mn, Cu, Mo, Cr, Cd, Se, As, Pb) in samples from the four main producing areas of Lanzhou lily. Combining principal component analysis (PCA), orthogonal partial least squares discrimination analysis (OPLS-DA) and linear discriminant analysis (linear discriminant analysis, LDA), the classification model of Lanzhou lily from different producing areas was constructed to verify the geographical origin traceability and origin confirmation. The results of the study showed that: δ13C, δ15N, K, Mg, Na, B, Fe, Mn, Cu, Mo, Cr, Cd were significantly different among the production areas (P<0.05). 5 principal components were extracted by PCA analysis, and the cumulative variance contribution rate was 84.36%. LDA original discrimination accuracy rate was 100%, leave-one-out cross validation (LOO-CV) discrimination accuracy rate was 88.89%. OPLS-DA model correct discrimination rate was 100%, of which the classification effect was optimal. This study would show that a multivariate statistical classification model based on the stable isotope and mineral element contents of Lanzhou lily could effectively distinguish lily from different production areas, and promote the establishment and improvement of its traceability system, and would be of great significance to the protection and quality control of Lanzhou lily's production area.

The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation between spiciness and saliva flow rate by measuring the saliva flow rate of subjects after consuming different concentrations of capsaicin solutions, and to establish a rapid method for determining the spiciness of foods. The physiological change caused by the increasing of saliva secretion after eating spicy food was used as the influential indicators of spicy taste intensity. The salivary flow rate was calculated by the salivary secretion of the subjects, and the relationship between the spicy intensity and salivary flow rate was fitted. Based on the fitting model, a new grading system for rapid and accurate calibration of spiciness was constructed, and the model grading results were verified by sensory evaluation method. The results showed that the intensity of spiciness significantly affects salivary flow rate (P<0.05), and the spiciness could be accurately and quickly graded by salivary flow rate. According to the salivary flow rate range, the spiciness was classified into 5 levels according to the salivary flow rate range: Grade 1 slightly spicy [Scoville heat units (SHU)10~500 (inclusive)]: Saliva flow rate (g/min) 0.496~1.395 (inclusive). Grade 2 light spicy [SHU500~1000 (inclusive)]: Saliva flow rate (g/min) 1.395~2.153 (inclusive). Grade 3 medium spicy [SHU1000~1500 (inclusive)]: Saliva flow rate (g/min) 2.153~2.749 (inclusive). Grade 4 heavy spicy [SHU1500~3000 (inclusive)]: Saliva flow rate (g/min) 2.749~3.569 (inclusive). Grade 5 hot (SHU>3000): Saliva flow rate (g/min)>3.569. By collecting the saliva secretion of 5~10 people after eating spicy food, the spiciness of the food tasted by the testers could be rated quickly by combining the quantitative relationship between spicy taste intensity and saliva flow rate. The saliva flow rate spiciness rating result was in the same spicy taste measurement level as the sensory rating result, which could basically reflect the real spiciness feeling of people after eating spicy food.

Abstract(13) HTML(1) PDF(2)
In order to determine the effect of phase temperature storage on the quality of fresh cut lotus root after anti browning agents treatment. Fresh cut lotus roots were treated with anti browning agent (mass fraction of 1.0% anhydrous citric acid+0.1% calcium ascorbate+0.2% L-aspartic acid) and stored at phase temperature (?0.5±0.1) ℃, ice temperature (?0.5±0.3) ℃ and cold storage (4±1) ℃. The effects of different precise temperature on apparent color, browning substrate and related enzyme activities, physiological indices and nutrient quality of fresh cut lotus root were studied. The results showed that precise temperature (phase temperature and ice temperature) could delay the decrease of L*, the increase of a* and browning degree, inhibit the decrease of total phenol and the activities of polyphenol oxidase and peroxidase when stored for 6 d, and the phase temperature storage was the best to maintain the original color of fresh-cut lotus root. In the storage process, the precise temperature (phase temperature and ice temperature) treatment could inhibit the increase of respiratory intensity, ethylene production rate, relative conductivity and malondialdehyde content, while delaying the increase of reducing sugar and the decrease of VC content in fresh cut lotus root. The comprehensive score of SPSS showed that the comprehensive score of phase temperature group was the highest. Principal component analysis showed that the correlation between phase temperature treatment group and polyphenol oxidase, relative conductivity, browning rate, malondialdehyde and a* was lower. Therefore, phase temperature storage could delay the browning and maintain the quality of fresh cut lotus root.

Osteoporosis is a systemic bone disease characterized by decreased bone mass, osteopenia, and bone microstructure degradation. The cause is that the activity of osteoclasts is greater than that of osteoblasts, resulting in bone resorption greater than bone formation. The current method of treating osteoporosis is mainly through calcium supplementation or drug treatment, but it would be accompanied by disadvantages such as poor absorption, insignificant effect, and large side effects. Plant natural active ingredients have the characteristics of wide sources, abundant structure and less adverse reactions. They could be used as new methods to prevent and treat osteoporosis. This article summarizes the anti-osteoporosis effects of osteoporosis and plant active ingredients. Through the analysis of related signal pathways, transcription factors, protein expression and other aspects, the anti-osteoporosis mechanism of plant active ingredients and related clinical research are described. On this basis, the anti-osteoporosis products of medicinal and edible plants are introduced, aiming to provide theoretical support for the development of new drugs and functional foods.
