In order to quickly detect the quality of frying oil from western-style fast food restaurants, calibration models of acid value and total polar compounds were established using near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) combined with partial least squares (PLS) to evaluate the frying oil quality. The findings presented that the correction coefficient of calibration model of acid value and total polar compounds were both 0.9974. The root mean square error of cross-validation (RMSEC) were 0.111 and 0.359, respectively. The root mean square error of prediction (RMSEP) were 0.171 and 0.562, respectively. The results of blind samples verification showed that the correlation coefficients between prediction value and true value for acid value and total polar compounds of frying oil were 0.9944 and 0.9761, respectively; the precision test showed that the relative standard deviations (RSD) of acid value and total polar components using the calibration models for the same frying oil sample were 0.934% and 1.278%, respectively, which indicated that the models of quantitative analysis of acid value and total polar compounds of frying oils were good with excellent prediction abilities and reproducibility. Therefore, the rapid detection model based on near infrared spectroscopy could rapidly and accurately detect the quality of frying oil from western-style fast food restaurants.

Abstract(41) HTML (12) PDF(14)
Due to various influences in the process of origin, processing, storage and transportation, food products are complex and changeable. Therefore, it is challenging to analyze and determine the adulteration and traceability of food. The existing food adulteration traceability methods mainly focus on physical and chemical testing and molecular biology technology, and the accuracy of relevant identification needs to be improved. The combination of metabonomics technology based on 1H NMR and multivariate statistical analysis can describe the overall characteristics of food and collect food origin and quality information. Recently, it has been widely used in the food field and has become a powerful tool for food adulteration and traceability analysis. Therefore, this paper describes the progress of 1H NMR omics technology in the adulteration and traceability analysis of food. Based on the overview of the principle of 1H NMR technology, the combination and application of 1H NMR and chemometrics analysis are introduced, and the applications of adulteration and traceability in typical food products are summarized, providing theoretical reference for the research and application of 1H NMR omics technology in food quality analysis.

In order to explore the key metabolites of Bifidobacterium animalis spp. lactis BB-12 metabolizing polysaccharides of Poria cocos, a non-targeted metabolomics method based on liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) was used, and glucose was used as a control. The effects of polysaccharides of Poria cocos on key metabolites of Bifidobacterium animalis spp. lactis BB-12 were analyzed. The results showed that polysaccharides of Poria cocos could significantly promote the growth of Bifidobacterium BB-12. By using component analysis (PCA) and orthogonal partial least squares discriminant analysis (OPLS-DA), some representative differential metabolites were screened out such as palmatine and ganolucidic acid, etc. There were 12 kinds of key differential metabolites, and 17 differential metabolic pathways were significantly enriched such as ABC transporters, linoleic acid metabolism, and galactose metabolism. These metabolites and pathways demonstrated that Bifidobacterium BB-12 exhibited better growth performance and prebiotic efficacy in the case of fermenting polysaccharides of Poria cocos. This experiment analyzed the metabolites produced by polysaccharides of Poria cocos from the level of small molecular metabolites which were metabolized by Bifidobacterium animalis spp. lactis BB-12. The results provide the theoretical basis and guidance for further study on the probiotic effect of polysaccharides of Poria cocos and Bifidobacterium animalis spp. lactis BB-12 in human bodies.

Immunochromatographic Test Strip (ICTS), a detection technology based on capillary column chromatography and specific immune interaction between antibody and antigen, is widely utilized in the field of rapid detection of food safety detection due to its cost-effectiveness, easy operation, non-professional personnel, short assay time, high specificity and naked eye visualization. Conventional spherical gold nanoparticles-based ICTS is the most common detection method. However, the conventional ICTS can help achieve simple qualitative or semiquantitative analysis, its low sensitivity is an obstacle to meet the current detection requirements. Therefore, there has been a growing interest focusing on the signal amplification method to improve the sensitivity of ICTS devices. This paper summarizes signal amplification strategies to enhance the sensitivity of ICTS and proposes the future perspectives, which provides technical references for the development of rapid detection methods for food safety.

2022, 43(11): 45-51. doi: 10.13386/j.issn1002-0306.2021080087
Abstract(76) HTML (13) PDF(16)
Hemicellulose was extracted from corncob and further modified by acetylation. Ultrasonic-assisted alkali method was employed for the extraction, in which sulfuric acid (H2SO4) and elemental iodine (I2) were used as co-catalyst for the acetylation of hemicellulose, respectively. Corncob hemicellulose and its acetylated products were characterized by infrared spectroscopy (IR), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). The yield and extraction rate of corncob hemicellulose were 33.7% and 81.0%, and the hemicellulose content reached 85.3wt%. The acetylation of corncob hemicellulose gave 84.6% yield and 1.27 degree of substitution (DS), respectively. The separation of hemicellulose from corncob using alkali method was effectively shortened by ultrasonic assistance, and the yield and extraction rate of corncob hemicellulose were improved. Concentrated sulfuric acid (H2SO4) and elemental iodine (I2) were effective co-catalyst for the acetylation of corncob hemicellulose. The results of IR and NMR showed that hemicelluloses were acetylated successfully, and TGA revealed that the thermal stability of the acetylated hemicellulose was improved. Moreover, the DS value of the acetylated product was moderate. Therefore, the acetylated product is expected to be used to prepare biodegradable materials for food packaging.

Abstract(88) HTML (23) PDF(11)
In order to understand the effect of deep eutectic solvents (DESs) extraction conditions on the properties changes and antioxidant activity in vitro of Polygonatum sibiricum polysaccharides (PSP), Polygonatum sibiricum was taken as the main raw material, and the relative molecular weight, monosaccharide composition and antioxidant activities of polysaccharides extracted with DESs were analyzed. The results showed that compared with the traditional water extraction method, the yield of polysaccharides extracted by 70 ℃ DESs was 18%, which was 36% higher than that by traditional water extraction. The molecular weight of PSP decreased and the galactose content increased; the molecular weight of HDPSP which extracted at 100 ℃ was lower, and the main component was glucose. The scavenging rates of hydroxyl free radical and DPPH free radical and the total antioxidant capacity of Polygonatum sibiricum polysaccharide showed that the antioxidant capacity of Polygonatum sibiricum polysaccharide extracted with DESs at 70 ℃ was significantly higher than that of polysaccharide extracted at 100 ℃ and water extraction. When the concentration was 3.0 mg/mL, the total antioxidant capacity of polysaccharides extracted at 70 ℃ was 4.5 U/mL, 4.3 times that of water-extracted polysaccharides, and 7.4 times that of polysaccharides extracted at 100 ℃. Deep eutectic solvent can reduce molecular weight and improve antioxidant activity of Polygonatum sibiricum polysaccharide. The results can provide reference for the application of deep eutectic solvent in polysaccharide extraction.

2022, 43(11): 58-64. doi: 10.13386/j.issn1002-0306.2021080327
Abstract(48) HTML (10) PDF(11)
In order to improve the drying efficiency and quality of potato chips, and to control the shrinkage deformation during hot air drying, the effects of temperature (45, 55, 65, 75 ℃) and slice thickness (3, 5, 7, 9 mm) on the drying characteristic curve, effective moisture diffusivity and activation energy of potato chips were studied. The results showed that the drying rate would increase with the increase of the hot air temperature or the decrease of the slice thickness of potato chips. Within the scope of the study, the effective moisture diffusivity of potato chips was between the range of 5.02×10−10~11.53×10−10 m2/s. And its value would increase with the increase of the hot air temperature and/or the decrease of slice thickness. Besides, it was found that the Weibull distribution function could describe the reduction rate stage of drying and shrinkage dynamics model of potato chips. According to Arrhenius equation, the activation energy of drying and shrinkage of potato slices were 27.35 and 46.44 kJ/mol, respectively, indicating that the activation energy of drying was less than that of shrinkage of potato slices. This work provided theoretical basis and technical support for the prediction of moisture transfer and shrinkage deformation of potato chips during hot air drying.

Abstract(45) HTML (13) PDF(14)
In this study, mung bean protein, methyl cellulose, κ-carrageenan (KC) and high acyl gellan gum (HA) were used as raw materials to construct a simulated egg liquid system based on mung bean protein. The effects of the ratios of KC and HA on the textural properties, rheological properties, water holding capacity (WHC) and microstructure of simulated egg liquid were investigated by measuring the textural results, dynamic rheology, WHC and microstructure. The textural analysis and WHC results suggested that KC was the decisive factor for the gel strength and hardness of the simulated egg liquid gels, HA contributed significantly to the springiness, cohesiveness, chewiness and WHC. The temperature scanning results showed that G′ and G" of the simulated egg liquid and natrual egg liquid increased gradually during heating and cooling, and G' was always greater than G", indicating that the two systems were dominated by elasticity. As the proportion of HA increased, the viscosity, the storage modulus (G′) and loss modulus (G″) of the compound sol system increased, showing that HA could improve viscoelasticity properties of the simulated egg liquid sol. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) results showed that KC and HA might form separate and interpenetrating polymer networks and the gel network structure was formed due to the certain compatibility and crosslinking between KC and HA. The sensory evaluation results showed that when the KC/HA ratio was 1.2:0.4, the comprehensive sensory score of the simulated fried egg was the highest, which was the closest to the natural fried egg in terms of taste, structure and flavor. In summary, this study could provide theoretical basis for the development and utilization of plant-based egg simulation products by investigating mechanical properties and interaction mechanism of simulated egg liquid system with different ratios of KC/HA.

Pearson correlation analysis showed that the hardness was negatively correlated with stable time and farinograph property (P<0.05), steamed bread flavor was negatively correlated with wet gluten content and softening degree (P<0.05), and positively correlated with gluten index and stable time (P<0.05). Thus, the objectives of mutation breeding were determined according to sensitivity of materials and doses.

Abstract(74) HTML (20) PDF(18)
The objective of this work was to study the difference of physical and chemical indexes and sensory indexes between set-style yogurt with TG enzyme and plain set-style yogurt (without TG enzyme) in the fermentation process. The changes of acidity, viscosity, hardness, water holding capacity and viable count of yogurt during fermentation were measured by phenolphthalein indicator method, rheometer, texture analyzer, centrifugation and plate counting method, respectively. The changes of color, taste and smell were measured by electronic eye, electronic tongue and electronic nose, respectively, and sensory evaluation was carried out. The results showed that adding 0~5 U TG enzyme per gram of milk protein, the acidity of yogurt at the end of fermentation was within the range of 71.12~73.64 oT, and there was no significant difference in the acidity of yogurt (P>0.05). During the fermentation process, the viscosity and hardness increased significantly after 3 h (P<0.05), and the viscosity and hardness of set-style yogurt with TG enzyme increased significantly at the end of fermentation (P<0.05). With the increase of TG enzyme content, the water holding capacity increased significantly (P<0.05). Adding different concentrations of TG enzyme had no significant effect on the number of viable bacteria in set-style yogurt (P>0.05). The main color number of TG enzyme set-style yoghurt and common set-style yoghurt were both 4095, and there was no significant difference in color at the end of fermentation (P>0.05). By principal component analysis, adding different concentrations of TG enzyme after fermentation had no significant effect on the taste and smell of yogurt (P>0.05). According to sensory evaluation, yogurt that 1 g milk protein supplemented with 2 U TG enzyme had the best sensory. Therefore, compared with the plain set-style yogurt without TG enzyme, the coagulated yogurt with TG enzyme was not significantly different in acidity, live bacteria count, color, taste and odor (P>0.05); it was significantly higher in viscosity, hardness and water-holding capacity (P<0.05), and the addition of appropriate amount of TG enzyme was beneficial to the improvement of the quality of coagulated yogurt.

The study of feeding regimens (pasture, grazing supplementary and confinement) on slaughter performance, meat quality in the longissimus dorsi muscle of Sunit sheep were determined. Afterwards, quantitative classification of muscle fiber types was conducted by ATPase histochemical staining and real-time fluorescence quantitative quantification to explore the difference of feeding patterns on types composition of muscle fiber , in order to explore the internal reasons for the difference of meat quality in different feeding methods. The experimental results indicated that the slaughter performance indexes such as total weight gain, net meat weight, net meat rate, slaughter rate and meat production rate, and carcass quality indexes such as backfat thickness and carcass weight of the the grazing supplementary and confinement feeding patterns were increased remarkably than those of the pasture pattern (P < 0.05), the ratio of bone to meat of the pasture pattern was significantly higher than that in confinement and grazing supplementary feeding patterns (P < 0.05). The pH24 h of the confinement pattern was remarkable lower than that of the pasture and grazing supplementary feeding patterns (P < 0.05), and the shear force of the pasture pattern was remarkable lower than that of the confinement pattern (P < 0.05). The diameter and area proportion of typeⅡb muscle fiber in pasture pattern and grazing supplementary feeding pattern were significantly higher than those in confinement pattern (P < 0.05), and the gene expression of MyHCⅡb mRNA was significantly lowr than that in confinement pattern (P < 0.05). The diameter, cross section area of typeⅠandⅡa muscle fibers, the enzyme activity of LDH in the confinement pattern were significantly elevated than those in the pasture pattern (P < 0.05), the number and area percentage of Ⅱa, the gene expression of MyHCⅠmRNA, the muscle fiber density and the enzyme activity of MDH in the confinement pattern were markedly lower than those in the grazing supplementary feeding and pasture pattern (P<0.05), the genes expression level of MyHCⅡx, MyHCⅡa mRNA and the enzyme activity of SDH in confinement pattern were reduced significantly than those in pasture pattern (P < 0.05). Therefore, different feeding regimens of Sunit sheep have their own advantages, and the slaughter performance and carcass quality of Sunit sheep under confinement and grazing supplementary feeding are better. Pasture and grazing supplementary feeding have better meat quality due to their ability to enhance muscle oxidative metabolism and higher proportion of oxidized muscle fibers.

Abstract(33) HTML (11) PDF(13)
In order to investigate the corporate effect of vacuum mixing and freezing-thawing treatment on microstructure and quality of quick-frozen Youtiao dough and fritters, frozen Youtiao dough was prepared under the vacuum mixing (0~0.08 MPa) and freezing-thawing treatment (0~3 times). Combined analytical methods covering multiple instruments (e.g., low field nuclear magnetic resonance, scanning electron microscopy, and fourier infrared spectrum analyzer) were used to investigate the water distribution, microstructure, and secondary structure of treated frozen Youtiao dough. Meanwhile, the oil content, water content, specific volume and textural quality of Youtiao were analyzed. Results showed that freezing-thawing treatment destroyed the structure of the dough, declined the strong bonding water content of dough and α-helical content in gluten (14.80%~13.61%), resulting in the loose and disordered protein structure. However, with the increase of vacuum degree, the strong bonding water content in quick-frozen Youtiao dough gradually increased, and the ordered degree of protein network structure in dough also improved. Furthermore, freezing-thawing treatment could also decrease the volume (1.82 cm3/g~1.47 cm3/g), increase the oil content (15.08%~16.88%) and reduce the textural quality of Youtiao, while vacuum mixing could effectively decrease the oil content (15.08%~12.64%), improve volume (1.82 cm3/g~2.38 cm3/g), reduce hardness and improve other qualities of Youtiao. These results indicated that vacuum mixing could reduce the quality deterioration caused by freezing-thawing treatment by regulating the water distribution and protein structure in quick-frozen Youtiao dough. Therefore, this study can provide theoretical basis and guidance for large-scale production of quick-frozen Youtiao.

In order to explore the structural characterization and anti-digestion characteristics of mung bean resistant dextrin, mung bean starch was used as raw material to prepare mung bean resistant dextrin by acid heat method. Its surface morphology, crystal form, polarized light, functional groups and glycosidic bonds were characterized, and its anti-digestion characteristics were explored by simulating in vitro digestion. The results showed that compared with mung bean starch, the structure of mung bean resistant dextrin was fragmented with different sizes and irregular shapes. The polarized light cross disappeared, and the chemical groups were similar. The peak positions of each functional group remained unchanged and no new peaks were generated. The crystal structure was amorphous, and the molecular weight MW of molecular degradation was 5.24×103 g/mol. The glycosidic bond was broken and a new digestion-resistant glycosidic bond was generated. The simulated in vitro digestion experiment showed that mung bean resistant dextrin had strong anti-digestion ability, and the anti-digestion content was 92.28%. This experiment aims to provide theoretical and data support for the development of functional dietary fiber.

Abstract(58) HTML (18) PDF(11)
In this paper, the effects of three kinds of microwave (MVD, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5 min) and hot air (HAD) drying at 60 ℃ on the drying characteristics and quality of jasmine were compared and analyzed. The results showed that in microwave drying stage, the water content of jasmine decreased rapidly, which accelerated the moisture decline in jasmine in hot air drying stage. The water-soluble extract, hydroxyl radical inhibitory ability, total amino acid and essential amino acid content of jasmine flower dried by combined microwave and hot air drying were higher than those of HAD group. The color and peak area of total volatile components, benzyl alcohol and α-fendene and of jasmine flowers in MVD2.0+HAD and MVD2.5+HAD groups were higher than those in HAD, which indicated that the typical fragrance of jasmine dried by MVD1.5+HAD and MVD2.0+HAD could be better retained. The difference of volatile components of jasmine dried by combined microwave and hot air drying could be distinguished by LDA analysis in electronic nose. In conclusion, jasmine dried by MVD2.0+HAD had the best quality.

In order to compare the composition and antioxidant properties of sea cucumber peptides prepared by different methods, sea cucumber peptides were prepared by endogenous enzyme (sea cucumber autolysis) and compared with those prepared by exogenous enzyme (neutral protease, alkaline protease and trypsin). The results showed that the degree of hydrolysis of sea cucumber crude peptide prepared by autolysis method was autolysis 8 h method>autolysis 4 h method>autolysis 2 h method, and the degree of hydrolysis of sea cucumber crude peptide prepared by exogenous enzyme was trypsin method>alkaline protease method>neutral protease method. More than 94% of sea cucumber peptides produced by autolysis for 2, 4 and 8 h were less than 314 Da. The molecular weight of sea cucumber peptides prepared by enzymatic hydrolysis was mainly distributed in 1~8.5 kDa; With the increase of autolysis time, the types of amino acids of sea cucumber peptides prepared by autolysis gradually increased, and the content of flavor amino acids was higher at 8 h. The sea cucumber peptides prepared by autolysis for 2, 4 and 8 h had better hydroxyl radical scavenging ability, DPPH radical scavenging ability and Fe3+ reducing ability than those prepared by enzymatic hydrolysis. At the concentration of 10 mg/mL, the hydroxyl radical scavenging rate of autolysis for 8 h was 93.4%, DPPH radical scavenging rate was 85.8% and Fe3+ reducing force was 0.740. In conclusion, sea cucumber peptides prepared by autolysis method had their own unique advantages. This study can provide theoretical support for the preparation of sea cucumber peptides.

Abstract(45) HTML (11) PDF(13)
In this paper, the effects of adding ginseng extract with concentrations (w/v) of 0‰, 1‰, 3‰, 5‰, 8‰, and 10‰ to the culture medium on the strain characteristics and tolerance of stress cultured Lactobacillus paracasei JLUs66 were studied. The results showed that after adding different concentrations of ginseng extract, the growth rate, viable count, acid production rate and heat tolerance of Lactobacillus paracasei JLUs66 were negatively correlated with ginseng extract. However, the extracellular polysaccharide production, low temperature tolerance and bile salt tolerance increased with the increase of the ginseng extract concentration in the low concentration range. The low pH tolerance and NaCl tolerance of the strain showed a trend of increasing and then decreasing with the increase of ginseng extract concentration. Through comprehensive comparison, it could be concluded that the stress cultured Lactobacillus paracasei JLUs66 by 3‰ concentration of ginseng extrac had the best strain characteristics and the strongest tolerance.

The results showed that electrophoretic pure chitinase was obtained by centrifugation, ammonium sulfate precipitation and dextran G-100 gel chromatography from fermentation broth of the strain Bt028, with the specific activity of 681.78 U/mg, the purification factor of 3.21 and enzymatic activity recovery of 15.52%, and the molecular mass of the chitinase was determined to be 65 kDa by SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. The enzymatic characteristics study results showed that the optimum reaction temperature of the chitinase was 60 ℃ with good stability when temperature lower than 60 ℃; and the optimum reaction pH was 6.5 with good stability at pH5.5~7.5. Mg2+, Ca2+, Hg2+ and Co2+ had inhibitory effect on the enzyme activity, while Cu2+ and Fe3+ had a certain promotion effect. Low concentrations of methanol, ethanol, n-propanol and dimethyl sulfoxide increased the enzymatic activity, however, the chitinase would be inhibited when the concentration of these organic solvents were increased to a certain level. The chitinase could be activated by acetone but inhibited by formaldehyde. Under the optimal catalytic conditions, the value of Km, Vmax and Kcat of the chitinase-catalyzed reaction were 29.533 mg/mL, 108.696 μmoL/(L·min) and 0.527/min, respectively. Research results provide technical parameters for the practical application of the chitinase.

The results showed that 26 of the 32 mineral elements in the dried tangerine peel samples had significant differences between Guangdong and other two producing areas, and 11 of them had significant differences between the three different regions. After principal component analysis, four principal components could be extracted from the 32 mineral elements, representing 70.0% of the total index. Based on the principal component analysis, the dried tangerine peel samples could be preliminarily clustered according to their different origin. The main variables of the first two principal components were Dy, Sm, Gd, Pr, Nd, Y, La, Fe, Be, V, Ce, Sc, Co, P, Mo, As, Pb and B. Through linear discriminant analysis, 21 mineral elements K, P, Ca, Co, Cu, Mn, Mo, V, Ni, B, Li, Pb, As, Sr, Ti, Th, Gd, Sc, Nd, Pr and Y were determined as effective traceability indexes of the dried tangerine peel. Additionally, based on the discriminant model established by orthogonal partial least squares discriminant analysis, the importance of 13 elements Sc, B, Y, Co, Nd, La, Pr, Be, Gd, Dy, Sm, Mo and Fe were determined. For the discrimination models established by the two above-mentioned discrimination analysis methods, their overall correct discrimination rates of cross validation and external sample validation were both 100%, which basically achieved the origin discrimination of dried tangerine peel. The research suggested that the mineral element fingerprint analysis technology can be used for the origin traceability discrimination of dried tangerine peel.

Abstract(66) HTML (24) PDF(19)
In order to promote the edible utilization of broccoli stalks and leaves, as well as solve environmental issues from broccoli residues, the whole broccoli was chosen as materials and divided into florets, stalks and leaves to analyze the nutrients and minerals contents, thermal stability and the morphology of freeze-dried broccoli flours. The chromaticity, density, swelling capacity, water-holding and oil-holding capacities of broccoli florets, stalks and leaves were also measured. The results showed that the content of flavone in broccoli leaves was 19.82±0.86 mg/g, chlorophyll of 11.35±0.65 mg/g, calcium of 11.27±0.48 mg/g, copper of 20.23±0.81 μg/g, manganese of 29.62±0.71 μg/g, which were all higher than those in stalks and florets significantly (P<0.05). There were differences in particle size and specific surface area among samples at the same mesh, in which broccoli stalks had the highest size and lowest specific surface area. The compressibility of three samples increased with decreasing in particle size. The broccoli leaves and stalks had higher compressibility under 180-mesh than florets. However, the compressibility of leaves at 180-mesh was different from stalks insignificantly (P>0.05). The leaves and florets had high swelling capacity, but stalks and florets had high water-holding and oil-holding capacities. The florets had the highest water-holding and oil-holding capacities among three samples at 140-mesh, which were 13.18±0.46 g/g and 1.77±0.13 g/g, respectively. With consideration of processing costs, 140-mesh was the optimum size for florets, stalks and leaves of broccoli flours.

To establish an accurate determination method of metal elements in oils, 5 edible oils and 2 gutter oils were chose as raw material, and a new microwave digestion method was established to pretreat oils in this paper. The contents of metals were determined by flame atomic absorption spectrometry. The programs and conditions of microwave digestion were designed and optimized, and finally a new program for microwave digestion containing 5 steps was obtained, which was with a maximum digestion pressure of 35 atm, a maximum temperature of 190 ℃ and a retention time of 20 min. The performances of the established method were investigated and listed as follows: The linear relations of 9 metal elements were good in their concentration ranges, the determination coefficient ranged was from 0.9982 to 0.9994, the limits of detection was ranged from 0.0013 to 0.0122 μg/mL, and the standard recoveries of samples were ranged from 98.94% to 101.45%, RSD≤4% (n=6). The contents of 9 metal elements in 7 oil samples were determined using this method. The results showed that the nutritional elements in 5 edible oils were rich, and the contents of Cr , Cd and Pb were not detected, therefore, estimated preliminary, the nutritional value and safety of the oils were high. However, Cr, Cd and Pb in gutter oils were all detected, and the contents of Pb are far higher than the threshold limit value of national standard, so the gutter oils are not suitable for consumption.

Abstract(32) HTML (14) PDF(8)
In order to study the effects of freezing-thawing times on the quality characteristics of frozen mutton. After freezing and thawing repeatedly for 0, 1, 3, 5 times and then refrigerated at 4 ℃ for 1, 3, 5, 7 days, the nutritional quality, edible quality, texture characteristics and lipid oxidation degree of Oula Tibetan mutton were determined. The results showed that with the increase of freeze-thaw times, the nutritional quality of Tibetan mutton deteriorated significantly, the moisture content and protein content decreased significantly (P < 0.05); The overall eating quality of Tibetan mutton decreased significantly, especially after 5 freeze-thaw cycles, the color stability and water holding capacity decreased significantly (P < 0.05), the tenderness decreased slightly, but the change was not significant, and the meat hardness and chewiness decreased, while the viscosity, elasticity and adhesiveness increased; Meanwhile, peroxide value (POV) and thiobarbituric acid value (TBARS) reached the maximum after 5 freeze-thaw cycles (P < 0.05), indicating that the degree of lipid oxidation increased with the increase of freeze-thaw cycles; At the same time, the longer the cold storage time, the worse the meat quality. The above results showed that the increase of freeze-thaw cycles had a great impact on the meat quality, and the repeated freeze-thaw phenomenon should be avoided in the actual production, processing and transportation of meat.

Abstract(74) HTML (8) PDF(21)
In order to ensure the quality and safety of salmon, changes of biogenic amines and quality of salmon slices were studied in this paper at 25, 4, 0 ℃ and −20 ℃. The salmon slices were stored at 25, 4, 0 ℃ and −20 ℃, respectively, and the biogenic amine content, total viablecount, TBA, pH and sensory score were determined. The results showed that the main biogenic amine in salmon slices were phenethylamine, putrescine, cadaverine, tyramine and histamine, and the five biogenic amine in salmon slices were all at low levels at the beginning of storage. As storage time increased, the contents of biogenic amines increased significantly at 25, 4 and 0 ℃. At 25 ℃, the contents of biogenic amines increased 5.6, 32.65, 15.81, 7.22 times and 54.12 times at the end of storage, respectively. Spermine and spermidine did not change significantly during storage. During −20 ℃ storage, there was no significant change in biogenic amine content, which remained at a low level all the time. At 25, 4 and 0 ℃, the microbial and thiobarbituric acid values of salmon slices showed a significant increase trend, and the higher the temperature, the faster the increase. Sensory score showed a downward trend, and the lower the temperature, the slower the decrease. The freshness indexes of salmon slices stored at −20 ℃ were better than those stored at 25, 4 and 0 ℃. Temperature has a significant effect on the changes of biogenic amines in salmon slices during storage, and low temperature storage can effectively control the production of biogenic amines in salmon filletsand slow down the deterioration of quality.

Abstract(73) HTML (10) PDF(17)
In order to evaluate the anti-inflammatory effect of crude polysaccharide from Tibetan Opuntia ficus-indica stems, the impacts of crude polysaccharide contents on the foot swelling in mice caused by carrageenin, and on the contents of inflammatory factors in mice’s plasma were studied, through the infrared spectroscopy analysis of the crude polysaccharide from Opuntia ficus-indica stems, and the determination of the molecular weight and contents of total sugar as well as monosaccharide composition and contents. The results showed that the characteristic groups of crude polysaccharide from Tibetan Opuntia ficus-indica stems were mainly centered on stretching vibration and bending vibration. The stretching vibration was manifested as primary amine and -NH stretching vibration of primary amine, -C=C- and C-O stretching vibration; the bending vibration as -OH bending vibration, C-O asymmetric shrinking vibration and C-CO-C bending vibration in plane. The contents of total sugar was 405.724 mg/g, the molecular peak (Mp) of total sugar was 24915 Da, and the monosaccharide was mainly composed of D-glucose (Glc). In the range of 100~400 mg/kg, with the increasing of the polysaccharide dose, the degree of foot swelling of mice decreased and the inhibitory rate of foot swelling increased. The inhibitory rate of polysaccharide from the stem of Tibetan Opuntia ficus-indica on mouse foot swelling was better, showing a dose-dependent trend. The expression levels of IL-1β, IFN-γ and TNF-α inflammatory factors in the high-dose team of crude polysaccharide from stems were closest to the expression levels in its positive control dexamethasone acetate team. The expression levels of IL-1β, IFN-γ and TNF-α inflammatory factors decreased as the concentration of crude polysaccharide from stems increased, which explained that crude polysaccharide from Tibetan Opuntia ficus-indica stems had a favorable anti-inflammatory effect.

Abstract(44) HTML (8) PDF(16)
Animal fat of emulsified meat products plays an important role in the juiciness and flavor of the product. It contains lots of saturated fatty acids and cholesterol, which easily cause potential harm to the human body due to excessively intaking. However, simply reducing the fat content in the emulsified meat product will have a negative impact on the quality of the product. How to reduce the fat content in emulsified meat products and improve the quality of the products has become an urgent problem in the meat industry. Different sources (plant, animal, microbial, and synthetic) of hydrocolloids have good thickening, gelling, stability, water retention and emulsification capabilities. Hydrocolloids can ndow low-fat products with lubricating and mellow taste to reduce the fat content of emulsified meat products to a certain extent, improving the quality characteristics of the final product. Therefore, the mechanism and application of hydrocolloids to improve the quality of low-fat emulsified meat products are viewed comprehensively. This study will provide theoretical basis for the development of new healthy low fat emulsified meat products.

Food is abundant in phenolic compounds and phenols are perceived as a rich source of natural antioxidants and vital functional factors. Bound polyphenols are a form of phenolic compounds that exist in the residue from which free polyphenols have been extracted and are combined with other substances through ester bonds, glycosidic bonds, ether glycosidic bonds, etc. As the forefront of human immune defense, the intestine is prone to exogenous and metabolic oxygen radical damage, which triggers intestinal oxidative stress. Intestinal oxidative stress can disrupt the tight junctions between intestinal epithelial cells through various pathways, leading to intestinal epithelial barrier functional impairment and increasing intestinal permeability, which can induce various diseases. Bound polyphenols, as a natural antioxidant, have structural integrity and activity stability in the intestine. These components feature an ameliorative effect on intestinal oxidative stress as well as impaired intestinal barrier function by modulating immune function and regulating the expression of inflammatory factors, antioxidant enzymes and barrier proteins.
