Allergic reactions to foods influence a remarkable amount of population and are related with significant wellbeing results. It is one of the most significant issues that have expanding consideration. Current comprehension of the turn of events and utilization of allergenic capability of certain types of food proteins is restricted. In spite of the...

Butyric acid plays an important role in the prevention of colon cancer. Based on the functional role, the GPR109A receptor can be considered as one of the major drug targets for colorectal cancer. The objective of this study was to explore the anti-cancer potential of butyric acid derivatives by analyzing the interaction with the GPR109A receptor a...

Introduction. Purpose of the work – to identify suitable conditions for the extraction of pectin from stem pith of banana and to investigate how it affects rheological and textural properties of fruit jams. Materials and methods. Stem pith of local banana cultivar. Pectin extracted using hot water acidified with sulfuric acid. Yield was studied and...
Article
Full-text available
Pectin was extracted from underground stem of banana (Musa species). Optimum conditions of extraction required for maximum yield, were examined. Structural features were analysed. Pineapple jam, prepared using this pectin, was analysed for rheological and textural features. Banana pectin was made in to a viscous solution using sucrose and the visco...

Abstract The present study focused on the use of pineapple plant stem, which is an agro-waste, for the production of starch (11.08 % ± 0.77). Characters were studied using X-ray diffraction, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR), fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), differential scanning calori...

Abstract Biochemical and mineral composition of 13 traditional rice varieties of Kerala was studied in comparison to two popular high yielding varieties under cultivation, viz., Jyothi and Kanchana. Results showed that traditional varieties Thavalakannan and Rakthasali had significantly higher crude protein, crude lipids and insoluble dietary fibre...

The present study involves investigations on the collagen peptides obtained through bromelain hydrolysis. The collagen produced from Nitta Gelatin India Limited-Gelatin-H 1303080 was hydrolysed with bromelain extracted from pineapple stem. Collagen is the most important structural protein in the body, which gives the strength to build our body. Ful...

Pectin is extracted from peel of banana (Musa species). Its structural, rheological and textural features are studied. Optimum conditions of extraction upon yield was also examined. There was significant yield under the given set of experimental conditions. Degree of methylation was about 62 while percentage of anhydrouronic acid was slightly above...

Background/Aim: Butyric acid, a short chain fatty acid, plays an important role in the prevention of colon cancer. The aim of this study was to analyze the growth inhibitory and apoptotic effect of butyric acid derivatives in colorectal cancer cells. Materials and Methods: Human colorectal carcinoma HCT116 cells, were treated with the IC50 concentr...

The effects of fiber isolated from black gram (Phaseolus mungo) and coconut (Cocos nucifera) kernel on the metabolic activity of intestinal and fecal beta glucuronidase activity during 1,2-dimethylhydrazine induced colon carcinogenesis were studied. The results indicated that the inclusion of fiber from black gram and coconut kernel generally suppo...
Article
Full-text available
The influence of dietary fiber from coconut kernel isolated by the neutral detergent fiber method on the antioxidant status in rats treated with the colon specific carcinogen 1,2-dimethylhydrazine (DMH) was studied in rats fed a high-fat diet for 15 weeks. The DMH-treated fiber group showed higher levels of lipid peroxides than the control group tr...

Full-text available
The present study analysed surface architecture of normal, premalignant and malignant oral mucosa using scanning electron microscopy to evaluate its role in early diagnosis of potentially malignant oral lesions. The surface ultrastructure of the buccal mucosa in tobacco chewers showed variations from that of non-chewers. Homogenous leukoplakia demo...

The effect of dietary fiber isolated from Coconut (Cocos nucifera) and Blackgram (Phaseolus mungo) on the metabolic activity of microflora in the intestine and colon of the rats fed a high protein high fat diet was studied. The bacterial ß-glucuronidase activity was found to be decreased in the fiber fed groups when compared to the control group. T...
Article
Full-text available
Effect of feeding coconut and blackgram fiber isolated as neutral detergent fiber (NDF) on the levels of lipids and lipid peroxides was studied in rats given a high fat diet. Concentration of cholesterol, free falty acid and phospholipids showed significant decrease in the serum, liver aorta and intestine of coconut and blackgram fiber groups. Conc...
