In this study, we investigated the antimicrobial effect of tea polyphenols (TP) against Serratia marcescens and examined the related mechanism. Morphology changes of S. marcescens were first observed by transmission electron microscopy after treatment with TP, which indicated that the primary inhibition action of TP was to damage the bacterial cell(More)
BACKGROUND A procedure based on headspace solid phase microextraction (HS-SPME) and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS)was developed for the study of the volatile profile characteristics of turbot during refrigerated storage at 4°C for 20 days in order to find possible markers of freshness or spoilage. RESULTS A total of 61 volatile compounds(More)
BACKGROUND Surimi is produced from deboned fish muscle through washing to remove blood, lipids, sarcoplasmic proteins and other impurities. There is an increasing interest in the fortification of surimi with ω-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids because of their health benefits. However, lipid oxidation should be considered as an important factor during storage.(More)
BACKGROUND The presence of lipid oxidation products in the Maillard reaction pathway is of particular interest today. The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of lard and its oxidation products on the formation of volatiles from cysteine and xylose model systems. RESULTS Headspace volatiles generated in reaction mixtures were examined by(More)
The potential use of Brettanomyces anomalus PSY-001 as an additional starter culture for the production of Rice-steamed sponge cake (RSSC), a traditional fermented food in China, was investigated. Two productions of RSSC, each containing batches of experimental cakes with Brettanomyces added and reference cakes with the leavened liquid added were carried(More)
