The mineral content and color characteristics of 77 honey samples were analyzed. Eighteen minerals were quantified for each honey. Multiple linear regression (MLR) was used to establish equations relating the colorimetric CIELAB coordinates to the mineral data. The results obtained shown that lightness (L) was significantly correlated with S, Ca, Fe, As,(More)
Hyperspectral images of intact grapes during ripening were recorded using a near infrared hyperspectral imaging system (900-1700 nm). Spectral data have been correlated with grape skin total phenolic concentration, sugar concentration, titratable acidity and pH by modified partial least squares regression (MPLS) using a number of spectral pre-treatments and(More)
The phenolic composition of the extractable fraction of Zalema grape pomace has been analyzed by HPLC-DAD-MS and consisted of mainly flavanols and flavonols (122.75 and 23.11 mg/100 g dry pomace, respectively). The antioxidant activity has been determined by in vitro FRAP, ABTS, and ORAC assays (11.7, 34.9, and 63.6 mmol of Trolox equivalents (TE) per 100 g(More)
The effectiveness of seven phenolic compounds (catechin, epicatechin, procyanidin B2, caffeic acid, p-coumaric acid, myricitrin, and quercitrin) as copigments of malvidin 3-glucoside, the major anthocyanin in red wines from Vitis vinifera, using a copigment/pigment molar ratio of 1:1 was assayed in model wine solutions under the same conditions (pH=3.6, 12%(More)
The phenolics from different strawberry cultivars (Aromas, Camarosa, Diamante, Medina, and Ventana) cultivated in two different soilless systems (with and without recycling nutrient solution) were quantified to assess differences in their profiles as a function of both the variety and the cultivation system. Considering groups of phenols, it was found that(More)
Chemical composition of seeds changes during grape ripening and this affects the sensory properties of wine. In order to control the features of wines, the condition of seeds is becoming an important factor for deciding the moment of harvesting by winemakers. Sensory analysis is not easy to carry out and chemical analysis needs lengthy procedures, reagents,(More)
The potential of near-infrared hyperspectral imaging to determine anthocyanins in intact grape has been evaluated. The hyperspectral images of intact grapes during ripening were recorded using a near-infrared hyperspectral imaging covering the spectral range between 900 and 1700 nm. Reference values of anthocyanins were obtained by HPLC-DAD. A number of(More)
Different white winemaking byproducts (pomace, skins, seeds, and stems) were compared as natural sources of phenolic compounds having biological and sensory properties of enological interest. Antioxidant and copigmentation effects of these byproducts were studied in a wine-like model solution. RRLC-DAD was used to establish differences in the phenolic(More)
This paper presents a system architecture for reconstructing photorealistic and accurate 3D models of indoor environments. The system specifically targets large-scale and arbitrary-shaped environments and enables processing of data obtained with an arbitrary-chosen capturing path. The system extends the baseline Kinect Fusion algorithm with a buffering(More)
The stabilization of red wine color by the copigmentation phenomenon is a crucial process that does not always proceed favorably under natural conditions during the first stages of vinification. The impact of the prefermentative cold maceration technique on the phenolic composition and magnitude of the copigmentation level of organic Tempranillo wines(More)
