The antifungal activity of food additives or 'generally recognized as safe' (GRAS) compounds was tested in vitro against Botrytis cinerea and Alternaria alternata. Radial mycelial growth of each pathogen was measured in PDA Petri dishes amended with food preservatives at 0.2, 1.0, or 2.0% (v/v) after 3, 5, and 7 days of incubation at 25 °C. Selected(More)
This study evaluates the effect of different drying temperatures on the properties of semi-refined (SR) and refined (R) carrageenan extracted from Kappaphycus alvarezii cultivated in Brazil. Drying kinetics was studied in seaweeds under the following treatments: sun drying (control) and drying at 40, 60, and 90 °C in convective air dryer. Drying was carried(More)
BACKGROUND The state of Santa Catarina in Brazil is a large producer of Perna perna mussels. However, raw and processed mussels have a short shelf life because of their high microbiological count, such as Vibrio spp. This study evaluated the microbiological and physicochemical quality of raw and ready-to-eat mussels and the quality of water and ice used in(More)
The aim of this study was to measure the gas permeability of edible films using a homemade experimental apparatus and to determine the respiration rate of tomatoes (L. esculentun var. Cerasiforme) without (NC) and with (CC) edible coating at different temperatures. Permeability was determined using an experimental device according to the ASTM D1434 method(More)
Active biofilms of quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa, W.) starch were prepared by incorporating gold nanoparticles stabilised by an ionic silsesquioxane that contains the 1,4-diazoniabicyclo[2.2.2]octane chloride group. The biofilms were characterised and their antimicrobial activity was evaluated against Escherichiacoli and Staphylococcusaureus. The presence of(More)
This paper discusses the application of the dynamic method to measure the solubility in pseudo-ternary systems formed by vegetable raw materials (cellulosic structure+solute) and CO2. For aromatic, medicinal, and spice plants, the soluble portion of the solid is formed of essential oils, oleoresins, pigments, and various substances from several other(More)
