Potential of microalga Isochrysis galbana: Bioactivity and bioaccessibility
The lipid composition and anti-inflammatory activity of the microalga Isochrysis galbana were studied. Moreover, the influence of bioaccessibility on composition and bioactivity was evaluated through the application of an ...
Retention and pre-colon bioaccessibility of oleuropein in starchy food matrices, and the effect of microencapsulation by using inulin
Oleuropein is a phenolic compound that is present in fruits and olive tree leaves, which has shown enormous health benefits. This study aimed to assess the effects of the baking and boiling cooking methods and the ...
Predicting bioaccessibility of contaminants of emerging concern in marine sediments using chemical methods
Purpose: A comparison was made between three chemical methods to predict bioaccessibility of triclosan (TCS), bisphenol A (BPA), and 17α-ethynylestradiol (EE2) in marine sediments, involving an exchangeable (E) value, ...
Bioaccessibility of lignans from flaxseed (Linum usitatissimum L.) determined by single-batch in vitro simulation of the digestive process
BACKGROUND: Flaxseed is an important source of lignan secoisolariciresinol diglucoside (SDG) and its aglycone, secoisolariciresinol (SECO). These phenolic compounds can be metabolized to the mammalian lignans enterodiol ...
Evaluation of the bioaccessible fractions of Fe, Zn, Cu and Mn in baby foods
(Elsevier Science BvAmsterdamHolanda, 2013)
Is the bioaccessibility of minerals affected by the processing steps of juçara fruit (Euterpe edulis Mart.)?
The objective of this study was to verify if the processing steps of juçara fruit (Euterpe edulis Martius) affect mineral bioaccessibility using in vitro gastrointestinal digestion (IVG) followed by inductively coupled ...
Effects of Soy Protein and Calcium Levels on Mineral Bioaccessibility and Protein Digestibility from Enteral Formulas
Enteral formulas (EF) are complex food systems which have all the nutrients in their matrix for the complete human nourishment. However, there are components in EF which can interact with minerals, reducing their absorption, ...
Evaluation of the bioaccessible gastric and intestinal fractions of heavy metals in contaminated soils by means of a simple bioaccessibility extraction test
(Elsevier Ltd, 2017)
© 2017 Elsevier Ltd A study is made to evaluate the bioaccessibility of heavy metals in contaminated soils through a simple bioaccessibility extraction test (SBET), applied to the analysis of both the gastric and intestinal ...
