See something of interest? Please share our postings with colleagues in your institutions! Spotlight All NNLM MAR funding opportunities are currently closed. In February, we will announce opportunities to apply for projects starting May 15, 2018. Now is the perfect time to start meeting with potential partners and consulting with NNLM MAR staff on health information outreach ideas. Contact us to set up a consultation. National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week® begins on Monday! If your organization is getting involved with busting myths about drug use or addiction, tell us about it! NNLM MAR is always interested in learning about health outreach projects and activities that are happening in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey and Delaware. National Network of Libraries of Medicine News The National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) is partnering with the Public Library Association (PLA) to present a full-day preconference in conjunction with PLA 2018 in Philadelphia, PA. This preconference will review core competencies of providing health and wellness services, coach you through understanding your community’s needs, and explore how to create fun and informative health-related programming for different age groups and special populations. Details. Promoting Healthy Communities: as part of our joint consumer health initiative with the Public Library Association, we are encouraging network members to submit a brief write-up about their health and wellness programs to AL...

Publication date: Available online 20 January 2020Source: Trends in Food Science &TechnologyAuthor(s): I.P. Shanura Fernando, BoMi Ryu, Ginnae Ahn, In-Kyu Yeo, You-Jin JeonAbstractBackgroundMetabolic syndrome (MS) defines a group of severe comorbidities, including insulin resistance, abnormal fat accumulation, and high blood pressure that lead to obesity, diabetes, and heart diseases. MS has received a growing concern due to its rising prevalence in many countries. The consumption of high-calorie food, sedentary lifestyle habits, genetic factors, and stress conditions aggravate risk factors for developing metabolic syn...

The objective of this study was to develop a simple method for detecting lipid oxidation through the color change of a composite film. Schiff's reagent which can form color compound with lipid oxidation products—aldehydes was incorporated into polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) to form the composite film. The effects of PVA molecular weight (Mw), Schiff's reagent/PVA ratio and glycerol content on the response of the composite film to aldehyde were investigated. Sunflower seed oil with various extent of oxidation was used to evaluate the effectiveness of the composite film for lipid oxidation detection. The results showed that t...

Publication date: Available online 20 January 2020Source: LWTAuthor(s): Derong Lin, Xiaomei Long, Yichen Huang, Yuanmeng Yang, Zhijun Wu, Hong Chen, Qing Zhang, Dingtao Wu, Wen Qin, Zongcai TuAbstractThe effects of mixed fermentation by lactic acid bacteria and Neurospora crassa, and microwave treatment on the composition, structure, and functional properties of okara DF were studied. The results of SEM and EDX showed that the honeycomb structure was more obvious and the content of elemental components was changed after fermentation and microwave treatment. The result of TGA-DSC showed that the thermal stability of the sam...

The objective of this work was to evaluate the physicochemical characteristics and technological functional properties of okara flours (OFs) obtained by different drying processes in forced air oven (FAD at 40, 50, 60, and 70 °C), microwave (MWD), and freeze drying (FRD). The OFs showed acidity range of 3–5.7 mEq NaOH/100 g, pH of 5.4–5.9, soluble solid of 0.6–1.3 ºBrix, luminosity of 78–85, and good technological functional properties (MWD-OF and FRD-OF showed ↑oil absorption capacity and ↑emulsifying capacity and FRD-OF showed foam capacity). The FAD70-OF, MWD-OF, and FRD-OF...

Publication date: Available online 21 January 2020Source: Food ChemistryAuthor(s): Congcong Sun, Xuefeng Wu, Xiaoju Chen, Xingjiang Li, Zhi Zheng, Suwei JiangAbstractOkara dietary fiber was prepared by liquid fermentation with Monascus anka (M. anka). Infrared spectra results indicated that there were more oligosaccharides because of the hydrogen bond cleavage of the polysaccharides in okara Monascus dietary fiber (OMDF). Scanning electron microscopy and X-ray analyses showed that the structures of OMDF were altered as compared to that of the control. The UV-visible spectrum of the M. anka seed broth (MSB) contained three ...

Publication date: Available online 21 January 2020Source: Ticks and Tick-borne DiseasesAuthor(s): Sándor Hornok, Andrea Grima, Nóra Takács, Sándor Szekeres, JenŐ KontschánAbstractThe Maltese islands are situated south of mainland Europe and north of Africa, therefore are expected to share tick species and tick-borne pathogens with both continents. This situation highlights the importance of studying ticks in this country. Nevertheless, the tick fauna of Malta appears to be a seldom investigated issue, with hitherto only five tick species reported in the country. Here, as part of a tick c...
