Publication date: Available online 18 October 2019Source: Innovative Food Science &Emerging TechnologiesAuthor(s): H.M. Hernández-Hernández, L. Moreno-Vilet, S.J. Villanueva-RodríguezAbstractNon-thermal emerging technologies in the sector of food processing have often been cited by researchers as an alternative to conventionally heat treatments for food processing in order to develop safe foods with minimal damage to nutritional and sensory properties. Non-thermal emerging technologies for foods processing have been widely developed in Europe and U.S.A. However, the interest in these technologies a...

Herein, we developed an innovative method to achieve these expected effects using plant exine capsules, a kind of natural pollen grains, which could provide large internal cavities for loading and robust exine against harsh conditions. In our work, we firstly made a soluble mixture of glycerol monostearate (GM) and nobiletin (N...

Conclusion: Using thermal models deduced from low-powered test sonications, the proposed MPC algorithm provides good performance in phantoms. In direct comparison to the current state-of-the-art hyperthermia controller, MPC performs better due to the more finely tuned heating patterns and therefore constitutes an important step toward stable, uniform hyperthermia.

Alarcon-Rojo, Luis Carrillo-Lopez, Ivan Garcia-Galicia, Mariana Huerta-Jimenez, Larysa PaniwnykAbstractQuality of bovine longissimus lumborum, infraspinatus and cleidooccipitalis muscles after high-intensity ultrasound (HIU; 40 kHz and a power of 11 W/cm2 for 0, 40, 60, and 80 min) and aging (0, 7 and 14 d) was evaluated. The effects of HIU on pH and color of meat were not considered negative. HIU improved water holding capacity (WHC) of l. lumborum and infraspinatus only after aging. Whereas, the WHC ...
