    This paper dealt with the effects of culture time, culture-disturbing, and NaCl on protease activity of the mucor extracted. Several methods for the extraction of mucor protease with optimal absorb wavelength for detection of protease activity were also studied. The results were that: high composition protease activity could be obtained through 72h solid-medium cultivation, but one culture-farmed-over after 24h cultivation, extracted with distilled water in using NaCl in the culture would yield higher activity. The optimal absorb wavelength was 690nm.

    Natural antioxidant peptides are safer than synthetic food antioxidants, hence the growing interest in the substitution of synthetic food antioxidants by natural antioxidant peptides has focused research on their preparation from inexpensive or residual sources from agricultural industries. Except for antioxidant ability, other biological properties such as anticarcinogenicity, antimutagenicity and antiaging activity have been reported for natural antioxidant peptides. Hence antioxidant peptides are not exclusive concern for the food industry, which are widely needed to prevent deterioration of other oxidisable goods, such as cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and plastics. In the last few decades, antioxidant peptides have been given more and more attentions for its important function and become the focus of domestic and foreign studies. In this review, after presenting general aspects about natural source of antioxidant peptides, is to focus on the crude extraction and purification of antioxidant peptides from agricultural and industrial wastes, as well as to summarize the evaluating indicators and influencing factors of antioxidant activity. At last the application of antioxidant peptides is presented.

    Phenolic Content and Antioxidant Capacity of Strawberry, Blackberry and Blueberry
    FOOD SCIENCE    0, (): 130-133.  
    Abstract2066)   HTML0)    PDF(pc) (170KB)(2369)       Save
    Total phenolic content (TPC), total flavonoid content (TFC) and total proanthocyanin content (TAC) were determined in the whole berries, juice and pomace of strawberry, blackberry and blueberry. Meanwhile, their total antioxidant capacity (trolox equivalent antioxdant capacity, TEAC) was analyzed by an improved ABTS+ radical scavenging assay. The results showed that blueberry contained the highest levels of TPC, TFC and TAC, which were 9.44 mg gallic acid/100g dry , 36.08 mg rutin/g and 24.38 catechin mg/g, respectively. Blueberry also possessed the strongest total antioxidant capacity with a TEAC (trolox equivalent antioxidant capacity) value at 14.98 mmol Trolox /100 g. In contrast, strawberry contained the lowest levels of TPC, TFC and TAC as well as the lowest total antioxidant capacity. For all the three varieties of berries, the pomace contained the most TPC, TFC and TAC and revealed the highest level of TEAC, followed by the whole berry and juice. In addition, a significant linear correlation between TPC and TEAC was observed with a correlation coefficient (r)of 0.9704, suggesting that phenolic compounds in berries were mostly responsible for their antioxidant activity.

    According to the principle that slow freezing causes cell wall damage, a process for the production of kiwifruit juice was designed based on freezing and thawing for cell wall disruption and centrifugation. Optimal process conditions for freezing, thawing and centrifugation were investigated using single factor and orthogonal array design methods. Results indicated that the productivity, vitamin C content, transmittance and color of kiwifruit juice produced using this process were obviously superior to the juice from traditional squeezing. Slice thickness of 0.6 cm, freezing time of 10 h at -14 ℃, thawing time of 30 min at room temperature, centrifugation time of 20 min at 3000 r/min and filtration pore size of 100 mesh were found optimum.

    As two major constituents of starch, amylose and amylopectin are distinct in both molecular structures and molecular aggregation, which results in dissimilarity in their physico-chemical properties. Consequently, the application performance of starch is variable due to the ratio of amylose and amylopectin. Current progress in characterization such as purity, molecular structure, relative molecular weight, crystal characteristics, thermal enthalpy and viscosity of amylose and amylopectin has been reviewed in this paper, which will provide meaningful references for further investigations of structural and physicochemical characterization as well as the application of amylose and amylopectin.
