The lipid-lowering effects of Vicia faba protein are well-known only from animal experiments. According to these studies Vicia faba protein is the most powerful cholesterol-lowering agents among vegetable proteins. Therefore we examined these effects in a group of patients with hypercholesterolemia (HLP type IIa). We observed a cholesterol-reducing efficacy(More)
The foaming ability (foam capacity and stability) of protein isolates from faba beans (Vicia faba L.) depends closely on the manner of isolation and treatment of the isolates. Unmodified isolates possess a moderate foaming ability with a maximum foam capacity of 210% in alkaline solution (pH 10.0) at concentrations of about 3%. The foam capacity and(More)
The perloline content of fodder grasses is genetically determined and strongly influenced by environmental factors. Tall fescue and meadow fescue show high, perennial and Italian ryegrass low concentrations of perloline. The perloline content of tall fescue can be diminished by bastardization to a level harmless in cattle feeding.
A colorimetric method for the quantitative determination of perloline in fodder grasses was established. The comparison with the internationally used spectrofluorimetric method shows that the established method is applicable as a routine method. The average variation coefficient of the colorimetric method is 4.9%. The average rediscovery quota was 95.8%(More)
