The aim of this research was to evaluate strategies for the development of a virgin olive oil (VOO) enriched with aqueous extracts of olive leaf and cake to increase the necessary dose in the diet of phenolic compounds with a natural product, as phenolic compounds are involved on the healthy properties of olive oil. Different extraction procedures were(More)
The aim of this work consists of developing a technological process for elaborating a virgin olive oil enriched in lutein-zeaxanthin extracted from spinach, studying different parameters like temperature, time of extraction and different ratios (spinach-oil). It was observed that the amount of carotenoids extracted increased up to a maximum after 24 hours(More)
Although grape seed extract (GSE) has proven to be effective against various cancers, few studies have investigated the effects of GSE on human leukemia. In this study, we analysed the mechanisms involved in the apoptotic effects induced by GSE on human promyelocytic leukemia HL-60 cells. Thus, GSE treatment succeeded in activating caspase-3 (P < 0.05), the(More)
Physicochemical parameters, bioactive compounds' content (carotenoids and total phenols), total antioxidant activity, and enzymatic activity of polyphenol oxidase (PPO) were evaluated after high pressure processing (HPP) on a pumpkin purée (cv. 'Butternut'). Three pressure levels (400, 500, and 600 MPa) were combined with three holding times (200, 400, and(More)

(2013): Effects of several sanitisers for improving quality attributes of minimally processed Fragaria vesca strawberry. Czech J. Food Sci., 31: 49–54. In order to decrease microbial contamination, fresh-cut industry commonly uses sodium hypochlorite as a(More)
The effect of high pressure processing (HPP) (400 and 600 MPa for 1 and 5 min) and the stability during storage were studied in two ready to heat vegetable meals: meal A, mainly composed by pumpkin and broccoli, and meal B, mainly composed by eggplant, zucchini, chard and spinach. The treatment at 600 MPa/5 min was the most effective to reduce the initial(More)
The growing interest in the substitution of synthetic food antioxidants and antimicrobial additives by natural ones has fostered research on vegetable sources and on the screening of raw materials, for identifying new antioxidants and antimicrobial natural agents. The aim of the present study was to assess total phenolic contents and determine polyphenolic(More)
Moderate intensity pulse electric fields were applied in plum with the aim to increase bioactive compounds content of the fruit, while high-hydrostatic pressure was applied to preserve the purées. High-hydrostatic pressure treatment was compared with an equivalent thermal treatment. The addition of ascorbic acid during purée manufacture was also evaluated.(More)
A high performance liquid chromatography method, coupled to diode-array and fluorescence detectors, with a previous solid-liquid extraction, has been developed for the simultaneous detection and quantification of polyphenolic compounds in table olives and in olive paste. The effects of extraction variables have been studied by response surface methodology.(More)
