1. Effect of cooking on enrofloxacin residues in chicken tissue.
Match Strength: 8.491
The aim of this study was to determine the effect of different cooking processes (microwaving, roasting, boiling, grilling and frying) on naturally incurred enrofloxacin residues in chicken muscle. Enrofloxacin and its metabolite, ciprofloxacin, were analysed using a validated LC-MS method with limits of detection (LOD) and quantification (LOQ), respectively, of 2 and 5 ng g-1 quinolones in muscle samples. The method was shown to be linear over the range 5-500 ng g-1. Mean intra-day relative standard deviation (RSD) at a concentration of 50 ng g-1 (n = 6) was 6%; inter-day RSD was 12%. A ...

2. Indoor air pollution in rural China: cooking fuels, stoves, and health status.
Match Strength: 7.775
Solid fuels are a major source of indoor air pollution, but in less developed countries the short-term health effects of indoor air pollution are poorly understood. The authors conducted a large cross-sectional study of rural Chinese households to determine associations between individual health status and domestic cooking as a source of indoor air pollution. The study included measures of health status as well as measures of indoor air-pollution sources, such as solid cooking fuels and cooking stoves. Compared with other fuel types, coal was associated with a lower health status, including ... Read More »

3. Determination of carboxyl content in high-yield kraft pulps using photoacoustic rapid-scan fourier transform infrared spectroscopy.
Match Strength: 3.451
Pinus radiata kraft pulps with varying carboxyl content were studied using Fourier transform infrared photoacoustic spectroscopy (FT-IR-PAS). The examined pulp samples, with Kappa number ranging from 20.8 to 128, originated from pulping experiments conducted in flow-through reactors utilizing varying effective alkali, temperature, and cooking time. A partial least-squares (PLS) analysis was used to formulate a model that correlates the spectral data with the carboxyl content of pulp. Using three principal components, the resultant PLS model could explain approximately 98.5% of the variance in ... Read More »

4. Effects of chitosan and a low-molecular-weight chitosan on Bacillus cereus and application in the preservation of cooked rice.
Match Strength: 3.311
Shrimp chitosan with 95% deacetylation and low-molecular-weight chitosan (LMWC) isolated from chitosan hydrolysate were investigated for their effects on the growth of Bacillus cereus and for use in the preservation of cooked rice. Four strains of Bacillus cereus were used: standard strain BCRC 10603 and three isolates (nos. 1 through 3) from cooked rice. The antibacterial activity of chitosan against B. cereus was greatly decreased when the reaction pH was changed from 6.0 to 7.0, but LMWC activity was less affected by this pH change. The susceptibility of B. cereus cells to chitosan ... Read More »

5. Effect of industrial dehydration on the soluble carbohydrates and dietary fiber fractions in legumes.
Match Strength: 3.309
The effects of soaking, cooking, and industrial dehydration treatments on soluble carbohydrates, including raffinose family oligosaccharides (RFOs), and also on total dietary fiber (TDF), insoluble dietary fiber (IDF), and soluble (SDF) dietary fiber fractions were studied in legumes (lentil and chickpea). Ciceritol and stachyose were the main alpha-galactosides for chickpea and lentil, respectively. The processing involved a drastic reduction of soluble carbohydrates of these legumes, 85% in the case of lentil and 57% in the case of chickpea. The processed legume flours presented low residual ... Read More »

6. A pilot study of open label sesame oil in hypertensive diabetics.
Match Strength: 2.516
The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of sesame oil in hypertensive diabetics medicated with atenolol (beta-blocker) and glibenclamide (sulfonylurea). This open label trial with two intervention periods comprised 22 male and 18 female patients, 45-65 years old, with mild to moderate hypertension and diabetes. Sesame oil (Idhayam Gingelly oil, V.V.V. & Sons, Virudhunagar, Tamilnadu, India) was supplied to the patients, who were instructed to use it in place of other cooking oils for 45 days. Blood pressure (BP), anthropometric measurements, plasma glucose, glycated ... Read More »
