Extraction and characterization of volatile compounds and fatty acids from red and green macroalgae from the Romanian Black Sea in order to obtain valuable bioadditives and biopreservatives
TLDR
Three species of macroalgae, Ceramium virgatum, Ulva intestinalis, and Cladophora vagabunda, harvested from the Romanian Black Sea coast, were studied as sources of valuable compounds that could be used as additives and biopreservatives. Expand
Production of medium chain saturated fatty acids with enhanced antimicrobial activity from crude coconut fat by solid state cultivation of Yarrowia lipolytica.
TLDR
The results provide substantial evidence for obtaining biopreservative effects by coconut fat enzymatic hydrolysis and antimicrobial activity of fatty acids against some food-borne pathogens was evaluated. Expand
Evaluation of bioactive compounds in extracts obtained from three romanian marine algae species
Algae are used for many purposes: in food industry, animal feeding, medicine, cosmetic industry and for soil enrichment. There are also many secondary ways for using algae: producing alginates andExpand
ANTIMICROBIAL COATINGS BASED ON CHITOSAN DERIVATIVES AND QUATERNARY AMMONIUM SALTS FOR PACKAGING PAPER APPLICATIONS
* Dunărea de Jos University of Galaţi, Faculty of Engineering and Agronomy, Călăraşi 29, 810019, Braila, Romania ** “Gheorghe Asachi” Technical University of Iasi, Faculty of Chemical Engineering andExpand
Synthesis and in Vitro Antimicrobial Evaluation of New N-Heterocyclic Diquaternary Pyridinium Compounds
TLDR
A series of bis-pyridinium quaternary ammonium salts with different aryl and heteroaryl moieties were synthesized and their antimicrobial activity investigated; the activities were expressed as the minimum inhibitory concentrations (MIC). Expand
Confirmation and identification of Listeria species from fresh lettuce
TLDR
The contamination of Listeria monocytogenes found in Romanian fresh lettuce samples was identified on the lettuce grown in glass houses where the soil was fertilized with sheep feces and also in the sample from Supermarket C. Expand
Active and biodegradable food packaging systems
The packaging system has become a major element in the food chain, due to that most food products reach the consumer with some type of packaging technology. Among many of the packaging materialExpand
EVALUATION OF SOME BIOTECHNOLOGICAL PARAMETERS INFLUENCING THE PLEUROTUS OSTREATUS BIOMASS PRODUCTION BY SUBMERGED CULTIVATION
The submerged culture of mushrooms represents a future for biotechnological processes at industrial level, in order to obtain biomass with economical value (food and ingredients, nutraceuticals andExpand
Lipolytic activity of lipases from different strains of Yarrowia lipolytica in hydrolysed vegetable fats at low temperature and water activity
TLDR
The aim of this research was to evaluate the ability of different Yarrowia lipolytica strains, having different origin, to grow and to produce the lipases at low temperature (4°C) and to show a higher specificity of palm kernel fat and shea fat. Expand
