The magic of maca: a fertility-boosting food

Date: Apr 7, 2016

Author: Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

Maca is hailed as a superfood with fertility enhancing effects, but its active ingredients are poorly understood. This study explored maca samples from China and Peru using liquid chromatography and chemometrics. The researchers were able to separate the samples based on their chemical fingerprint, a method that could be used for labelling and authentication in the future.

Method of detecting mould in air: a new tool for mushroom growers?

Date: Mar 21, 2016

Author: Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

Despite being fungi themselves, mushrooms are susceptible to fungal diseases, which can lead to serious yield losses. Now, researchers have developed a rapid and simple method to identify the disease-causing pathogens in air, which could be the basis for a new quality control system.

Foodomics in action: finding contaminated baby food

Date: Mar 10, 2016

Author: Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

Foodomics – a comprehensive and high throughput approach to analysing food – is emerging as a powerful tool for dietary risk assessment. Scientists from Japan report use of the approach to detect contaminated baby food, identifying pesticides and heavy metals.

Journal Highlight: Multivariate analysis for the safety assessment of genetically modified rices in the anti-nutrients and phenolic compounds

Date: Mar 7, 2016

Author: separationsNOW

Safety assessments of genetically modified and drought-tolerant rices were conducted by comparing with their non-GM comparators using phytic acid, trypsin inhibitors and phenolic acids as indicators.

Reading the tea leaves: quality markers for green tea

Date: Feb 12, 2016

Author: Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

Green tea has well-reported health benefits, but the compounds responsible for these effects are still not fully understood. This study used a combination of chromatography and chemometrics to identify the two most important compounds in Brazilian green tea samples, which could be used as quality markers.

Journal Highlight: The use of 'Omics technology to rationally improve industrial mammalian cell line performance

Date: Feb 8, 2016

Author: separationsNOW

The intersection of systems biology, 'Omics technologies and mammalian bioprocess sciences have been discussed to see how these can better characterize and understand host cell culture state.

Moroccan olive oil – preventing cheap imitations

Date: Feb 1, 2016

Author: Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

Morocco is one of the biggest producers of olive oil in Africa, but currently lacks protection. This paper is the first to use lipid composition to characterise olive oils grown in the country, paving the way to proper quality assurance.

The origins of pompia: An Italian citrus delicacy

Date: Jan 13, 2016

Author: Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

Citrus monstruosa is one of the rarest citrus fruits in the world. Grown in a small region of Italy and used in sweets and liqueurs, its origin and taxonomy remain unknown. Using chemometrics, researchers have now identified its closest siblings, including oranges and grapefruit.

Journal Highlight: Relationships between volatile compounds and sensory characteristics in virgin olive oil by analytical and chemometric approaches

Date: Jan 11, 2016

Author: separationsNOW

The compositions of the volatile fractions of 25 extra virgin olive oils from different regions were analysed and the relationships between chemical composition and sensory characteristics were evaluated using chemometrics.
