Publication date: Available online 9 August 2019Source: Food ChemistryAuthor(s): Ziye Zhang, Xiu-Min Li, Hang Xiao, Anna Nowak-Wegrzyn, Peng ZhouAbstractTropomyosin (TM) is the main allergen of shrimp. Glycation was reportedly reduced the allergenicity of TM, while the allergenicity reduction was heavily dependent upon the sources of saccharides. In this work, how glycation of tropomyosin by functional oligosaccharides affected the allergenicity was investigated. Compared to TM, the TM glycated by galacto-oligosaccharide (TM-GOS), mannan-oligosaccharide (TM-MOS) and maltopentaose (TM-MPS) had lower allergenicity and perfor...

Authors: Haragi M, Ishikawa H, Kiuchi T Abstract Visual representation methods have long been used as tools to communicate information in health education settings, and their effect on improving health literacy has been investigated.
