To study the impact of yeast populations on wine flavour and to better understand yeast growth dynamics, wines were produced by the (i) indigenous microflora, (ii) vigorous yeast starter EC1118 and (iii) slowly fermenting yeast Assmannshausen. Sensory analysis revealed that wines differed depending on the fermentation type. However, these yeast-related(More)
Forty-eight durum wheat samples from 5 locations in Austria were examined forFusarium infection andFusarium toxin content.F.gramlnearum andF.avenaceum were by far the prevailingFusarium species In durum wheat kernels, followed byEpoae, F.culmorum, andF.equlsetl. Ion-paired HPLC analyses of the samples showed moniliformin contents of kernels up to 0.88(More)
A representative survey was made of maize ears of the 1988 and 1989 crop in Austria to establish the influence of corn borer injuries onFusarium species involved in ear fusariosis andFusarium toxin production. TheFusarium species most frequently isolated from rot-damaged ears wereFsacchari var. subglutinans (about 50 %) andF. graminearum (about 30 %). There(More)
Fusarium avanacoum infected wheat and triticale heads in Poland in each season between 1985 and 1989. The average number of heads infected byF avonacaum was 26 % for wheat and 46 % for triticale out of all examined heads withFusarium head blight symptoms.Fusarium-damaged wheat grain, naturally infected byF avenaceum, contained an average of 15.9±7.7 mg(More)
Fusarium subglutinans has been identified as a prevailing pathogen of maize ears in Poland in the seasons 1985-1991. About 95-100% of ears with Fusarium ear rot symptoms were infected by this species. Moniliformin was present in all 57 ears with pink ear rot symptoms examined. Fusarium-damaged kernels contained an average of 130.9 mg/kg of moniliformin,(More)
BACKGROUND Although many bedside ethical dilemmas can be avoided if patients discuss their wishes regarding the use of life-prolonging treatment and aggressiveness of care, many physicians are reluctant to raise this issue with their patients. Physicians may wait for such discussions until a patient is ill or elderly or until the patient raises the issue(More)
When clinical ethicists are called upon to give a recommendation regarding patient care, they may be faced with a dilemma of their own. If their own personal opinion is not widely shared, the ethicist will have three options. These include: (1) giving their own opinion; (2) giving the widely shared opinion; and (3) giving both opinions, leaving the(More)
Based on representative analyses of Austrian cereals, a distinct shift in the spectrum of Fusarium toxins and Fusarium species has been observed since the middle of the eighties. Although in the case of maizeF subglutinans — apart fromF graminearum — proved to be the most frequent and constant contaminant over the entire range of test series, there has been(More)
