Production of enzymatic hydrolysates with antioxidant and angiotensin-I converting enzyme inhibitory activity from pumpkin oil cake protein isolate
Abstract Protein isolate from pumpkin oil cake (PuOC PI) was hydrolysed by alcalase, flavourzyme and by sequential use of these enzymes, respectively, and the antioxidant properties and angiotensin-IExpand
Optimization of chitosan biofilm properties by addition of caraway essential oil and beeswax
Abstract Caraway essential oil and beeswax were added to chitosan in an attempt to design natural, biodegradable, bioactive (antioxidant and antimicrobial) packaging film with good barrier propertiesExpand
Evaluation of edible film-forming ability of pumpkin oil cake; effect of pH and temperature
Abstract This study was conducted to evaluate the feasibility of pumpkin oil cake (PuOC) to form biodegradable films. The effect of heating treatment and pH of film solutions on films properties wasExpand
Antioxidative and Functional Properties of Pumpkin Oil Cake Globulin Hydrolysates
Cucurbitin extracted from pumpkin (Cucurbita pepo) oil cake was enzymatically hydrolysed with three different enzymes viz. alcalase, flavourzyme and pepsin. Antioxidative and functional properties ofExpand
Pumpkin oil cake protein isolate films as potential gas barrier coating
Abstract This work was aimed to investigate the potential of PuOC protein isolate (PuOC PI) in preparation of biodegradable films at different pH values (2–12) and plasticizer content (0.3–0.6 gExpand
Maltodextrin as a carrier of health benefit compounds in Satureja montana dry powder extract obtained by spray drying technique
Abstract In this study, the spray drying process of S. montana liquid extract was investigated. The influence of maltodextrin (as a carrier and drying agent) in concentrations of 10%, 30% and 50% onExpand
Antioxidant and angiotensin-I converting enzyme inhibitory activity in the water-soluble protein extract from Petrovac Sausage (Petrovská Kolbása)
Abstract Petrovac Sausage ( Petrovska Kolbasa ) is a traditional dry fermented sausage from Backi Petrovac (province Vojvodina, Serbia). In this study, the in vitro antioxidant and angiotensin-IExpand
Role of Myeloperoxidase in Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease
The potential role of the myeloperoxidase enzyme in the production of reactive/chlorinating intermediates and their role in oxidative damage to biomolecules in the body of patients with chronic kidney disease and end-stage renal disease is presented. Expand
The biological activity of fermented dairy products obtained by kombucha and conventional starter cultures during storage
The effects of kombucha inoculum as a new starter culture for milk fermentation were investigated, during 14 days of storage. The antioxidant capacity, angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitoryExpand
Effect of the addition of pumpkin oil cake to gelatin to produce biodegradable composite films.
Summary This study was conducted to evaluate the possibility of pumpkin oil cake (PuOC) addition to gelatin in attempt to form biodegradable composite films. Different amounts of PuOC (40–95%)Expand
