Near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy has been successfully utilized for the rapid identification of green, black and Oolong teas. The spectral features of each category are reasonably differentiated in the NIR region, and the spectral differences provided enough qualitative spectral information for identification. Support vector machine as a pattern recognition(More)
This paper attempted the feasibility to determine content total polyphenols content in green tea with near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy coupled with an appropriate multivariate calibration method. Partial least squares (PLS), interval PLS (iPLS) and synergy interval PLS (siPLS) algorithms were performed comparatively to calibrate regression model. The number(More)
Near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy has been successfully utilized for the rapid identification of green, black and Oolong tea. The spectral features of each tea category are reasonably differentiated in the NIR region, and the spectral differences provided enough qualitative spectral information for the identification of tea.

In this work, the effects of medium composition and fermentation parameters on the simultaneous production of mycelial biomass and exopolymer by medicinal mushroom Hericium erinaceus CZ-2 were investigated in shake flask cultures using one-factor-at-a-time method and orthogonal array design. Results showed that the most suitable carbon, nitrogen, mineral(More)
Total acid content (TAC) and soluble salt-free solids content (SSFSC) in Chinese vinegar are 2 important indicators in the assessment of its quality. This paper shows the feasibility to determine TAC and SSFSC in Chinese vinegar by near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy. Synergy interval partial least square (Si-PLS) algorithm was performed to calibrate the(More)
To rapidly and efficiently measure antioxidant activity (AA) in green tea, near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy was employed with the help of a regression tool in this work. Three different linear and nonlinear regressions tools (i.e. partial least squares (PLS), back propagation artificial neural network (BP-ANN), and support vector machine regression (SVMR)),(More)
In the Xiangxi region of western Hunan province, China, 335 taxa belonging to 87 families and 119 genera are utilised as wild vegetables. In order to take advantage of this naturally occurring resource we examined the horticultural and the associated socio-economic aspects of these taxa. Wild vegetables, as the mainstay of human diet and Chinese traditional(More)
A quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) model of angiotensin-converting enzyme- (ACE-) inhibitory peptides was built with an artificial neural network (ANN) approach based on structural or activity data of 58 dipeptides (including peptide activity, hydrophilic amino acids content, three-dimensional shape, size, and electrical parameters), the(More)
This study attempted the feasibility to use near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy as a rapid analysis method to qualitative and quantitative assessment of the tea quality. NIR spectroscopy with soft independent modeling of class analogy (SIMCA) method was proposed to identify rapidly tea varieties in this paper. In the experiment, four tea varieties from(More)
High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) was identified green tea's quality level by measurement of catechins and caffeine content. Four grades of roast green teas were attempted in this work. Five main catechins ((-)-epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), (-)-epigallocatechin (EGC), (-)-epicatechin gallate (ECG), (-)-epicatechin (EC), and (+)-catechin (C))(More)
