Radical scavenging activity of different floral origin honey and beebread phenolic extracts
Phenolic extracts were isolated from 35 honey and nine beebread samples obtained from different sources in Lithuania by using Amberlite XAD-2 resin. The antioxidant properties of extracts wereExpand
Screening of radical scavenging activity of some medicinal and aromatic plant extracts
Extracts of 12 medicinal and aromatic plants were investigated for their radical scavenging activity using DPPH and ABTS assays: Salvia sclarea, Salvia glutinosa, Salvia pratensis, LavandulaExpand
Nutritional Components of Amaranth Seeds and Vegetables: A Review on Composition, Properties, and Uses.
A few decades ago Amaranthus was rediscovered as a most promising plant genus that may provide high-quality protein, unsaturated oil, and various other valuable constituents, as well as applications and health effects. Expand
Effect of drying on the volatile constituents of thyme (Thymus vulgaris L.) and sage (Salvia officinalis L.)
Abstract The losses of volatile constituents in herbs and spices depend mainly on drying parameters and biological characteristics of the plants. In the present study, two methods were applied in theExpand
Properties of oregano (Origanum vulgare L.), citronella (Cymbopogon nardus G.) and marjoram (Majorana hortensis L.) flavors encapsulated into milk protein-based matrices
Abstract Encapsulating properties of skimmed milk powder (SMP) and whey protein concentrate (WPC) for the coating of the essential oil (EO) of oregano ( Origanum vulgare L.) and aroma extracts (AE)Expand
Influence of nitrogen fertilizers on the yield and composition of thyme (Thymus vulgaris).
It was determined that nitrogen fertilizers influence the amount of nitrates, which was highest in the second-year-first-harvest, and the highest amounts of sugars and sucrose, in particular, were determined in the first year of thyme cultivation. Expand
Floral Markers in Honey of Various Botanical and Geographic Origins: A Review.
It is demonstrated that currently it is rather difficult to find reliable chemical markers for the discrimination of honey collected from different floral sources because the chemical composition of honey also depends on several other factors, such as geographic origin, collection season, mode of storage, bee species, and even interactions between chemical compounds and enzymes in the honey.

Carbohydrate composition and electrical conductivity of different origin honeys from Lithuania
Abstract The main task of this study was to characterize Lithuanian honeys obtained from various sources by their carbohydrate composition and electrical conductivity and to determine if there is anyExpand
Assessment of the influence of some spice extracts on the formation of heterocyclic amines in meat
Beef meat samples were heated in the presence of basil, oregano, marjoram, rosemary, sweet grass, savory, thyme and coriander extracts and the effects on the formation of heterocyclic amines (HAs)Expand
Variation of total phenolics, anthocyanins, ellagic acid and radical scavenging capacity in various raspberry (Rubus spp.) cultivars.
The results of this study expand the knowledge about variation in the content of valuable bioactive compounds in raspberries and may help for the selection and validation of the most productive cultivars. Expand
