An efficient preparative separation of polyphenols from thinned young apples (TYA) has been developed in the present study. X-5 resin was verified to offer the best adsorption capacity and desorption ratio for total polyphenols among the eight macroporous resins investigated. Influential factors, such as pH value and concentration of feeding solution,(More)
Water-soluble apple peel polysaccharides (APP) and apple flesh polysaccharides (AFP) were isolated from Pink Lady fruits, and their in vitro antioxidant capacities were characterised by DPPH(), HO(), and O(2)(-) systems, and ferric-reducing antioxidant power assay. Oral administration of APP at 250 and 500 mg/kg bw in mice was shown to be as effective as(More)
Young apple polyphenols (YAP) and nine types of phenolic compounds were investigated regarding the inhibitory activity against porcine pancreatic α-amylase (PPA) in vitro. Tannic acid, chlorogenic acid and caffeic acid in YAP showed relatively high inhibition with the IC50 values of 0.30, 1.96 and 3.69mg/mL, respectively. A detailed kinetics of inhibition(More)
This study was designed to investigate the inhibition effect and mechanism of total flavonoids, myricetin and quercetin extracted from Hovenia dulcis Thunb. on α-amylase and α-glucosidase in order to explore the potential use of Hovenia flavonoids in alleviating postprandial hyperglycemia. The results demonstrate that total flavonoids, myricetin, and(More)
Thiamine dilaurylsulphate (TLS), synthesised by a new method, was developed for a formulation with a wide antimicrobial spectrum and evaluated in apple juice and milk. The result of a disc diffusion method showed that TLS, which was synthesised from sodium lauryl sulphate and thiamine hydrochloride, had strong growth-inhibitory effects on Gram-positive(More)
BACKGROUND Nitric oxide (NO) has been recognized as pivotal for color and color stability of meat products and has an evident effect on inhibiting microbial growth in processed meat. The use of indirect NO (nitrate/nitrite) in industrial meat curing has potential deleterious effects and great concerns have been expressed over residual nitrite in meat after(More)
The method for separating and purifying chlorogenic acid (CA), epicatechin (EC), hyperoside (HY) and phlorizin (PH) simutaneously from young Qinguan apples by successive use of X-5 and polyamide resins has been developed in this study. The order of adsorption capacities of X-5 for the four phenolics was PH>HY>EC>CA, and the adsorption equilibriums of the(More)
SCOPE Apple pomace polysaccharides (APP), a free radical scavenger, is one of the major compounds derived from apple pomace. However, whether APP has beneficial effects on metabolic disorders is still unknown. METHODS AND RESULTS In the present study, water-soluble APP was isolated from the pomace of the locally abundant "Qinguan" apple and chemically(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of young apple polyphenols (YAP) on the quality of grass cap surimi (GCS) during storage at 4°C. The addition of YAP into GCS was found to be effective in delaying lipid oxidation, soluble myofibrillar protein (SMP) degradation and changes of L∗, a∗ and b∗ values of GCS. Chlorogenic acid was screened to(More)
