Commercial smoke flavorings were extracted with dichloromethane and the remaining aqueous phase was evaporated at room temperature; the residues obtained were dissolved in methanol and studied by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry. The composition of these residues was totally different from that of the dichloromethane extracts, constituting a small(More)
BACKGROUND Farmed and wild European sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) could be distinguished by its volatile metabolites, an issue not addressed until now. The aim of this work was to study these metabolites by solid-phase microextraction followed by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (SPME-GC/MS). RESULTS Both farmed and wild sea bass have a great number(More)
The fraction extractable with dichloromethane of the aerial parts of sage (Salvia lavandulifolia) and the liquid smoke obtained from this plant are studied by means of gas chromatography/mass spectrometry and gas chromatography. The extract of the aerial parts of the sage plant contains not only terpene, sesquiterpene hydrocarbons, and their oxygenated(More)
This article focuses on the impact of several experimental factors, including gastric acidification, intestinal transit time, presence of gastric lipase, sample/digestive fluids ratio, concentration and nature of the enzymes in intestinal juice, and bile concentration, on the extent of in vitro lipolysis when using a static model that simulates human(More)
Proton Nuclear Magnetic Resonance ((1)H NMR) is proved to be, for the first time, a very useful technique in monitoring the extent of lipid hydrolysis in digestion processes. Sunflower oil and minced fish flesh, as model foods, were subjected to different in vitro digestion experiments and the lipolysis levels reached were evaluated using (1)H NMR spectral(More)
BACKGROUND Fish shelf-life extension is a topic of great interest. In this study the behaviour of salted and unsalted farmed and wild European sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) fillets during storage was analysed through the evolution of their volatile metabolites. Farmed and wild sea bass fillets were brine-salted for 15 or 75 min, or dry-salted,(More)
A study of the various chemical reactions which take place during fish in vitro digestion and the potential effect of fish salting on their extent is addressed for the first time. Farmed European sea bass fillets, raw, brine-salted or dry-salted, were digested using a gastrointestinal in vitro model. Fish lipid extracts before and after digestion were(More)
This study aims to shed light on the changes provoked by boiling, steaming and sous-vide cooking on the lipids and volatile profile of farmed and wild European sea bass meat. None of the cooking techniques provoked changes due to hydrolytic or oxidation processes detectable by 1H NMR on sea bass lipids. The lipid profile of main and minor lipidic components(More)
Both fresh and slightly oxidized sunflower oils, as models of omega-6 rich lipids, were submitted to in vitro gastrointestinal digestion and studied by 1H NMR and SPME-GC/MS. Changes in lipolysis degree, lipid composition and oxidative level were studied by 1H NMR. Three quantitative approaches were used and several equations were newly developed. In(More)
Proton Nuclear Magnetic Resonance ((1)H NMR) spectroscopy was employed to study the lipids of farmed and wild European sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax). This technique provided a great deal of detailed information on sea bass lipids composition and, once the spectra signals have been assigned, the simple observation of the spectra enables one to distinguish(More)
