The implementation of a risk analysis program as risk assessment and critical control points (RACCP) is most necessary in order to accomplish the foodborne industries current objective of total quality. The novelty of this technique, when compared to actual hazard analysis and critical control points (HACCP) and its extension to incorporate elements of(More)
Recently many review papers regarding antioxidants from different sources and different extraction and quantification procedures have been published. However none of them has all the information regarding antioxidants (chemistry, sources, extraction and quantification). This article tries to take a different perspective on antioxidants for the new(More)
Water blanching and the use of additives (potassium sorbate and citric acid) combined with different types of packaging (air, vacuum "VP" and modified atmosphere packaging "MAP": 60% CO(2), 30% N(2) and 10% O(2)), were studied as new methods of preservation of chilled desalted cod. Microbial counts and total volatile basic nitrogen (TVB-N) analyses were(More)
Total antioxidant activity, physicochemical parameters, and the profile of flavonoids and phenolic acid compounds were evaluated for: their ability to distinguish between the botanical origins of four types of Spanish honey, the impact of industrial thermal treatment, and the effect of the year of collection. Citrus honey had the lowest levels of all the(More)
Stevia, a non-caloric natural sweetener with beneficial properties and considerable antioxidants and amino acids, is increasingly consumed as an infusion. This work evaluates the influence of the conditions (temperature: 50, 70 or 90 °C and time: 1, 5, 20 or 40 min) applied to obtain Stevia infusions, on antioxidants (total phenols, flavonoids and(More)
BACKGROUND Volatile fraction profile and physicochemical parameters were studied with the aim of evaluating their effectiveness for the differentiation between lemon blossom honey (Citrus limon L.) and orange blossom honey (Citrus spp.). They would be useful complementary tools to the traditional analysis based on the percentage of pollen. RESULTS A(More)
We report on the development of an electronic tongue as potential tool for fish freshness determination. The studies were carried out following the evolution with time on fillet of cultured sea bream (Sparus Auratus). The electronic tongue consists of 16 potentiometric electrodes of the type metal, metal oxide and insoluble metal salts. Graphite was also(More)
BACKGROUND The development of fruit-based foods that maintain the nutritional and sensory properties of fresh fruit may help to stimulate fruit consumption by consumers. The possibility of formulating a fruit-gel product with osmodehydrated fruit and the reused osmotic solution (OS) obtained from the dehydration step has been demonstrated. However, the(More)
Chitosan coatings containing lemon essential oils were described as effective at controlling fruit fungal decay at 20°C during 7 days. In this work, GC-MS was used to characterise the volatile compounds of strawberries during cold storage in order to analyse the influence of fruit coatings with chitosan, containing or not containing lemon essential oil, on(More)
