A sensitive method for the determination and confirmation of the sum of malachite green (MG) and leucomalachite green (LMG) in salmon muscle has been developed. It is based on the use of an oxidative pre-column reaction which converts LMG into MG previous to liquid chromatography-atmospheric pressure chemical ionisation-mass spectrometry (LC-APCI-MS)(More)
We studied the dynamic behavior of wild yeasts during spontaneous wine fermentation at a winery in the Valais region of Switzerland. Wild yeasts in the winery environment were characterized using a PCR-RFLP method. Up to 11 different yeast species were isolated from the vineyard air, whereas only seven were recovered from the grapes surface. We initially(More)
Total carotenoid content and composition of carotenoids of six varieties of Bactris gasipaes were determined by spectrophotometry and HPLC, with photodiode array detector. Significant differences in total carotenoid content (1.1 to 22.3 mg/100g) were detected among these varieties. Boiling the fruits for 30 minutes did not affect total carotenoid content,(More)
This paper analyzes the socio-economic and demographic factors associated with the digital divide in the province of Cordoba. Specifically we see to what extent factors such as gender, age, education level, socioeconomic status, industry, combined and are associated with e-inclusion.

The aim of this study was to examine the effects of two levels of energy intakes and two levels of fat at breakfast, on the food and energy intakes in subsequent meal (lunch). The study was performed in 51 children both genders, with ages ranging from 24 to 48 months, attending a day care center. The children selected had normal nutritional status(More)
Studies according to OECD 308 and OECD 309 are performed to simulate the biodegradation of chemicals in water-sediment systems in support of persistence assessment and exposure modeling. However, several shortcomings of OECD 308 have been identified that hamper data evaluation and interpretation, and its relation to OECD 309 is still unclear. The present(More)
Three preloads: high in simple carbohydrates (fruit juice), high in complex carbohydrates (banana) and high in protein (chicken meat), were tested in two groups of preschool children (56), aged 2 to 4 years from both genders. One group had a normal weight for height and the other high weight for height. The preload were given thirty minutes before lunch.(More)
