Biochemical data for purified and characterized phytases isolated from more than 23 plant species are presented, the dephosphorylation pathways of phytic acid by different classes ofphytases are compared, and the application of phytase in food and feed is discussed.
The problems of using one-dimensional methods to evaluate multifunctional food and biological antioxidants
There is a great need to standardise antioxidant testing to minimise the present chaos in the methodologies used to evaluate antioxidants.
Antioxidant activity of berry phenolics on human low-density lipoprotein and liposome oxidation
The antioxidant activity of phenolic compounds present in berries was investigated by two copper-catalyzed in vitro oxidation assays: human low-density lipoproteins (LDL) and lecithin liposomes. The…

The reactions subjected to gradual loading of substrate or substrate plus enzymes to increase the substrate levels from 5 to 15% w/w DM, consistently provided lower concentrations of glucose after 72 h of reaction; however, the initial rates of conversion varied in the different reactions.
Inhibition of Human Low-Density Lipoprotein Oxidation in Relation to Composition of Phenolic Antioxidants in Grapes (Vitis vinifera)
Antioxidant activities of phenolic extracts from fourteen different types of fresh grapes were investigated by measuring the inhibition of human low-density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidation in vitro. The…
