Physico chemical and bioactive properties of honeys from Northwestern Argentina
The results showed that the honeys had good properties of stability and freshness, and the antioxidant and antimicrobial properties found in honeys from the Argentinean Northwest make them products of high added value and excellent quality. Expand
Evaluation of antioxidant capacity, genotoxicity and polyphenol content of non conventional foods: Prosopis flour
Fruits such as Prosopis pod have been food sources (patay, arrope, chicha or aloja) of inhabitants of arid and semi-arid lands in South America. The aims of the present study were determine someExpand
Antimicrobial activity of selected plant species from "the Argentine Puna" against sensitive and multi-resistant bacteria.
The presence of antibacterial activity in Puna plant extracts against multi-resistant bacteria give support to their traditional use for treating conditions associated with microorganisms in humans and animals and consequently seems promising for the treatment of multi- resistant bacteria. Expand
Anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activities, functional properties and mutagenicity studies of protein and protein hydrolysate obtained from Prosopis alba seed flour.
P. alba cotyledon flour could be a new alternative in the formulation of functional foods not only for its high protein content but also by the biological and functional properties of its proteins and protein hydrolysates. Expand
Production of tannase from wood-degrading fungus using as substrate plant residues: purification and characterization
This paper is the first communication of tannase production by wood-degrading fungi and Fermentation technology to produce tann enzyme using plant residues and xylophagous fungi could be very important in order to take advantage of plant industrial waste. Expand
Evaluation of the cytotoxicity, genotoxicity, mutagenicity, and antimutagenicity of propolis from Tucuman, Argentina.
The results suggest a potential anticarcinogenic activity of Amaicha del Valle propolis and the chalcone isolated from it and may be inferred to contain some chemical compounds capable of inhibiting the mutagenicity of direct-acting and indirect-acting mutagens. Expand
Polyphenolic compounds and anthocyanin content of Prosopis nigra and Prosopis alba pods flour and their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory capacities.
Algarrobo pods meal contained biologically active polyphenols, with a positive impact on human health, and the phenolic composition of two South American algarrobos pod flour is presented for the first time. Expand
Antifungal activity of extracts of extremophile plants from the Argentine Puna to control citrus postharvest pathogens and green mold
The aim of this work was to screen extremophile plants from the Argentine Puna in order to select species with antifungal activity against Penicillium digitatum and Geotrichum citri-aurantii, two very important fungal species causing citrus postharvest disease. Expand
Evaluation of antioxidant activity and genotoxicity of alcoholic and aqueous beverages and pomace derived from ripe fruits of Cyphomandra betacea Sendt.
The data presented in this study demonstrate that C. betacea ripe fruits, aqueous and ethanolic preparations, and pomace may be a good source of antioxidant compounds in nutraceutical or functional-food products. Expand
