Bearded capuchin monkeys` and a human`s efficiency at cracking palm nuts with stone tools: field experiments
(ACADEMIC PRESS LTD- ELSEVIER SCIENCE LTD, 2010)
Wild bearded capuchins, Cebus libidinosus, in Fazenda Boa Vista, Brazil crack tough palm nuts using hammer stones. We analysed the contribution of intrinsic factors (body weight, behaviour), size of the nuts and the anvil ...
Mycoflora and mycotoxins in field samples of Brazil nuts
(ELSEVIER SCI LTDOXFORD, 2012)
Fungal and mycotoxin contamination was investigated in field samples of nuts, shells and pods of the Brazil nut collected during different periods in Itacoatiara, State of Amazonas, Brazil: day 0, samples still on the tree: ...
Monitoring and determination of fungi and mycotoxins in stored Brazil nuts
(International Association for Food ProtectionIowa, 2013-08-01)
Brazil nut (Bertholletia excelsa) is an important commodity from the Brazilian Amazon, and approximately 37,000 tons (3.36 × 10⁷ kg) of Brazil nuts are harvested each year. However, substantial nut contamination by Aspergillus ...
Extrusion of Brazil nut and cassava flour mixtures
(Soc Brasileira Ciencia Tecnologia AlimentosCampinasBrasil, 2008)
Correlation between sensory and chemical markers in the evaluation of Brazil nut oxidative shelf-life
Sensory analysis is one of the most suitable processes for measuring oxidative damage and determining the shelf-life of nuts, but it is an expensive and time-consuming methodology. Thus, our objective was to correlate ...
Molecular analysis of Aspergillus section Flavi isolated from Brazil nuts
(SPRINGERNEW YORK, 2012)
Brazil nuts are an important export market in its main producing countries, including Brazil, Bolivia, and Peru. Approximately 30,000 tons of Brazil nuts are harvested each year. However, substantial nut contamination by ...
Comparison of phenol content and antioxidant capacity of nuts
(Sociedade Brasileira de Ciência e Tecnologia de Alimentos, 2010)
Frequent nut intake is associated with protective effects against cardiovascular diseases. In addition to the generally high contents of unsaturated fatty acids, polyphenol compounds seem to be also implicated in health ...
Distribution of potential suitable hammers and transport of hammer tools and nuts by wild capuchin monkeys
(SPRINGER TOKYO, 2009)
Selection and transport of objects to use as tools at a distant site are considered to reflect planning. Ancestral humans transported tools and tool-making materials as well as food items. Wild chimpanzees also transport ...
Water-soluble Cu, Fe, Mn and Zn species in nuts and seeds
(ACADEMIC PRESS INC ELSEVIER SCIENCE, 2010)
An approach was developed to estimate molecular weight distribution of water-soluble Cu, Fe, Mn and Zn species in Brazil nut, cupuassu seed and coconut pulp by size exclusion chromatography (SEC) coupled on-line to ...
