Evaluation of postharvest calcium treatment and biopreservation with Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG on the quality of fresh-cut ‘Conference’ pears
(Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, 2018-03-25)
BACKGROUND Biological preservation with probiotic bacteria has arisen as an alternative to control the growth of foodborne pathogens on food. The objective of this work was to evaluate the effect of postharvest calcium ...
Unravelling the contribution of the Penicillium expansum PeSte12 transcription factor to virulence during apple fruit infection
(Food Microbiology, 2017-08-12)
Differential contribution of the two major polygalacturonases from Penicillium digitatum to virulence towards citrus fruit
(International Journal of Food Microbiology, 2018-05-31)
The fungus Penicillium digitatum is the causal agent of the citrus green mould, the major postharvest diseases of citrus fruit. Lesions on the surface of infected fruits first appear as soft areas around the inoculation ...
Efficacy of chlorine, peroxyacetic acid and mild-heat treatment on the reduction of natural microflora and maintenance of quality of fresh-cut calçots (Allium cepa L.)
(LWT - Food Science and Technology, 2018-05-04)
Calçots are the immature floral stems of the second-year onion (Allium cepa L.) resprouts with economic importance in Spain. The effect of sodium hypochlorite, peroxyacetic acid and mild heat treatment on the microbiological, ...
Evaluation of biocontrol capacity of Pseudomonas graminis CPA-7 against foodborne pathogens on fresh-cut pear and its effect on fruit volatile compounds
(Food Microbiology, 2018-04-27)
The application of microorganisms to control the growth of foodborne pathogens is an alternative to the use of chemical additives. In this work, Pseudomonas graminis CPA-7 was tested as a biocontrol agent against Salmonella ...
Impact of Pseudomonas graminis strain CPA-7 on respiration and ethylene production in fresh-cut ‘Golden delicious’ apple according to the maturity stage and the preservation strategy
(Postharvest Biology and Technology, 2018-05-25)
The effect of the biocontrol agent (BCA) Pseudomonas graminis CPA-7 on the accumulation of CO2 and ethylene (C2H4) in fresh-cut apples at two maturity stages was evaluated in refrigerated conditions. Factors involved in ...
Effect of steaming and sous vide processing on the total phenolic content, vitamin C and antioxidant potential of the genus Brassica
(Innovative Food Science and Emerging Technologies, 2018-04-12)
This study evaluated the effect of thermal processing on the antioxidant potential, vitamin C, and total phenoliccontent of various parts, including edible co-products, of severalBrassicavegetables. Overall, no ...
Decontamination of fresh-cut broccoli with a water–assisted UV-C technology and its combination with peroxyacetic acid
(Food Control, 2018-05-29)
The effectiveness of a water-assisted UV-C (WUV) technology for the decontamination of fresh-cut broccoli fromconventional and organic agricultural practices was evaluated as an alternative to chlorine sanitation. SeveralWUV ...
Steaming and sous-vide: Effects on antioxidant activity, vitamin C, and total phenolic content of Brassica vegetables
(International Journal of Gastronomy and Food Science, 2018-05-29)
The present study evaluated the effect of thermal processing on the colour, antioxidant activity, vitamin C content, and total phenols of six Brassica vegetables. The landrace Grelo was the best source of total phenols ...
Effects of thermal and non-thermal processing of cruciferous vegetables on glucosinolates and its derived forms
(Journal of Food Science and Technology, 2018-04-16)
Brassica vegetables, which include broccoli, kale, cauliflower, and Brussel sprouts, are known for their high glucosinolate content. Glucosinolates and their derived forms namely isothiocyanates are of special interest in ...
