The antioxidant activity and total phenolic content of some spices (M. piperita L., R. coriaria L., T. spicata, S. officinalis, R. officinalis L., C. ovata L., O. vulgare L., L. nobilis L. and C. annum L.) were determined. The higher TEAC values (mmol TE/g extract) were obtained for sage (1.783) and rosemary (1.241). The IC value (mg/ml) ranged between(More)
The chemical composition of the flower and unripe and ripe fruits from fennel (bitter) (Foeniculum vulgare ssp. piperitum) has been examined by gas chromatography and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. The main identified components of the flower and unripe and ripe fruit oils were estragole (53.08%, 56.11%, and 61.08%), fenchone (13.53%, 19.18%, and(More)
In this study, the antioxidant activity of 50% aqueous methanol extracts of Crataegus tanacetifolia (Lam.) Pers, Crataegus bornmuelleri Zaberi, Crataegus orientalis Pall. ex M.Bieb. var. orientalis, Crataegus szovitsii Pojark, Crataegus curvisepala Lindm., Crataegus monogyna Jacq. subsp. monogyna, Crataegus monogyna Jacq.subsp. azarella (Gris.) Franco,(More)
The approximate composition and mineral contents of carob fruit (Ceratonia siliqua), and the traditional foods produced from this fruit, carob flour and carob syrup, were studied. Protein, crude fiber and ash content and energy values of carob syrup were lower than the values of both carob fruit and carob flour. According to the results, the total sugar(More)
In this study, some compositional properties and mineral contents of Prangos ferulacea and Rheum ribes stems growing wild in Ağri and Elaziğ province in Turkey were investigated. Mineral contents were determined by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry. Moisture, crude oil, crude fiber, crude ash, crude protein, water-soluble and(More)
The mineral content of 43 honey samples from the middle regions of Turkey was investigated. Minerals were determined by inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectrophotometer. Calcium, potassium, sodium and phosphorus were the most abundant of the elements in all the studied honeys, with average concentrations ranging between 40.13 and 189.69 mg/kg(More)
The biosorption properties of APDC modified S. albus were tested in batch and column conditions. Effective experimental parameters such as pH, biosorbent dosage, contact time, temperature, initial lead(II) ion concentration, flow rate and bed height were investigated. The biosorption capacity of modified biosorbent was at maximum when lead(II) solution pH(More)
Some physical and chemical properties, mineral content and fatty acid compositions of kernel and oils of several walnut types (Büyük Oba, Kaman-2, Kaman-5) were determined. The oil yields from these kernels changed between 61.4% to 72.8%. The crude fibre contents of kernels ranged between 3.77% and 3.80%. In addition, crude protein contents of kernels(More)
BACKGROUND Aculus olearius Castagnoli is a recently recorded species that damages olive fruits in the Mediterranean basin of Turkey. Thus, the effects of Eriophyid mites (Aculus olearius Castagnoli and Aceria oleae (Nalepa) (Acarina: Eriophyidae) on the olive fruits from Ayvalık variety in southern Turkey were studied for the first time in terms of some(More)
Biochemical and technological properties were determined in developing Myrtus communis L. fruits (myrtle) from Mersin to investigate potential uses. Completely ripe black and white fruits contained ash, crude protein, crude oil, water- and alcohol soluble extracts, tartaric, malic and citric acids, and minerals including Ca, K, P, Mg and Na.
