OBJECTIVE Regular strawberry consumption augmented plasma antioxidant activity and decreased lipid peroxidation suggests preventive potential of these fruits against oxidative stress-dependent disorders. Blood phagocytes are important source of oxidants that may contribute to systemic oxidative stress. We examined the effect of strawberry consumption on the(More)
The main objectives of this study were (1) to produce control cow’s yoghurt that will serve as basis of comparison for produced cow’s and soy yoghurts with added probiotic cultures and inulin as prebiotic, (2) to determine trend of change of pH values in yoghurt during the fermentation, (3) to investigate the changes of some physicochemical properties of(More)

Potato protein (PP) holds great promise as a non-allergenic food ingredient with high nutritional value. Attempts to modulate its functional properties by crosslinking have not been reported to date. The effect of tyrosinase-mediated crosslinking of PP on the properties of o/w emulsions was studied in the present work. Among the various PPs, protease(More)
The ability of whey protein concentrate (WPC) (1% w/v) and/or honey (2% and 4% w⁄v) to improve lactic acid bacteria (Streptococcus thermophilus and Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus) growth and viability in yoghurt during a 21 day period of storage was investigated. Another focus of this study was to examine fermentation kinetics and(More)
