Oyster mushroom (Pleurotus sajor-caju) cultivated in the laboratory was studied for nutritional constituents, flavor components, antioxidant and antibacterial properties. Nutritional constituents estimated per 100 g dry weight (d.w.) include protein (29.3 g), carbohydrate (62.97 g), crude fat (0.91 g), ash (6.82 g) and crude fiber (12.3 g). Energy value of(More)
There is a growing interest to find alternate bioresources for production of ethanol, apart from cane/sugar beet molasses and starchy crops like sweet sorghum, cassava and sweet potato. Mahula (Madhuca latifolia L.) is a forest tree abundantly available in the Indian subcontinent and its flowers are very rich in fermentable sugars (28.1-36.3 g 100 g(-1)).(More)
of soils, their formation related to climate, relief, organisms, parent materials and time. KNOWLEDGE on the potential of soil resource and its limitations , present use and the methods of management for sustained production, is vital for the use of soil for production purposes. India can be called a land of paradoxes because of the large variety of soils.(More)
Papad is familiarly known as an Indian food adjunct or snack food. In this study, attempts have been made to increase the protein, minerals and crude fibre content of the papad with incorporation of Pleurotus sajor-caju powder to develop a novel snack food. Mushroom powder was added in different proportions with other ingredients of the papad and the(More)
INTRODUCTION Prophylactic gastrocnemius flap with primary rotating hinge knee is technically demanding in a case of neglected post-traumatic, infective arthritis of the knee, with challenges of compromised skin and soft tissues, articular bone defect, limb mal-alignment, gross instability, retained hardware and a contracted extensor mechanism with the(More)
The present work reports on attempts to develop mini-papads containing cheese powder to create a novel taste, with potential for urban and export markets. Cheese powder was added to black gram flour at 0-50% levels and papads were prepared in the conventional manner by rolling the dough and drying. These papads were deep-fat fried at 180 degrees C. Upto 20%(More)
A study was undertaken in the established benchmark (BM) soil series in different agro-ecological sub-regions of Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGPs), India with an objective to assess the urease activity and its kinetics at different soil depths. The urease activity declined with increase in soil depth in all the selected BM soils of IGP. The mean urea hydrolysis(More)
This study aims to determine nutritional as well as medicinal properties of Moringa oleifera (Drumstick) and Cicer arietinum (Chick pea) leaves. The possible health benefits of these underutilized leafy vegetables were explored by determining total phenolic content by Folin-Ciocalteau reagent, free radical-scavenging activity by 2,(More)
Indian shad, Tenualosa ilisha, is a commercially important anadromous fish representing major catch in Indo-pacific region. The present study evaluated partial Cytochrome b (Cyt b) gene sequence of mtDNA in T. ilisha for determining genetic variation from Bay of Bengal and Arabian Sea origins. The genomic DNA extracted from T. ilisha samples representing(More)
