Amounts of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) in German foods and evaluation of daily intake
Abstract The quantities of the biologically active isomer of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) – C18:2 c9t11 – in 139 German foods were analysed by capillary gas chromatography (results are given as a %Expand
Natural occurrence of steroid hormones in food
The natural occurrence of the sex steroid hormones progesterone, testosterone, 17β-estradiol and estrone in food was investigated in a survey of the German market basket and particular attention was paid to DHEA, which is said to have anti-aging properties. Expand
Consensus meeting: monosodium glutamate – an update
The general use of glutamate salts (monosodium-L-glutamate and others) as food additive can be regarded as harmless for the whole population and further research work should be done concerning the effects of high doses of a bolus supply at presence of an impaired blood brain barrier function.

Conjugated linoleic acid in milk fat: High variation depending on production system
There is a growing interest in CLA, considered to be beneficial in prevention of carcinogenesis, and its percentage in milk products can be increased through a suitable dietary regimen. Expand
N‐3 fatty acids and conjugated linoleic acids of longissimus muscle in beef cattle
Despite biohydrogenation in the rumen, linolenic acid (C18:3n-3) contained in grass was absorbed and deposited into the lipids of muscle and led to a significantly (p ≤ 0.05) higher content of n-3 fatty acids in the muscle Lipids of grazing cattle. Expand
Peroxidase-dependent cross-linking reactions of p-hydroxycinnamates in plant cell walls
AbstractPeroxidases are heavily implicated in plant cell wall cross-linking reactions, altering the properties of the wall and impacting its utilization. Polysaccharide-polysaccharide cross-linkingExpand
Effect of pasture vs. concentrate diet on CLA isomer distribution in different tissue lipids of beef cattle
Overall, pasture feeding resulted in significantly increased concentrations of the sum of CLA isomers in the lipids of longissimus, muscle, subcutaneous fat, heart and liver muscle of German Holstein and German Simmental bulls, but not in semitendinosus muscle. Expand
Biogenic amines in fish and soy sauces
Abstract. Biogenic amines were determined in 45 commercial fish sauces from the Far East by RP-HPLC with pre-column derivatization and fluorometric detection. The sauces were found to contain theExpand
The potential anticarcinogenic conjugated linoleic acid, cis-9,trans-11 C18:2, in milk of different species: Cow, goat, ewe, sow, mare, woman
CLA in milk of all ruminants was season-dependent and there exists a close positive correlation to trans vaccenic acid, which is inversely correlated to the content of PUFA and partly to MUFA. Expand
Aluminium levels of fish fillets baked and grilled in aluminium foil
Abstract During storage and preparation of food, aluminium foil is often used for wrapping heat-sensitive raw food for protection against direct heat, e.g. grilled or baked fish fillets. In thisExpand
