An independent state in the Lesser Antilles in the West Indies, north of Venezuela, comprising the islands of Trinidad and Tobago. Its capital is Port of Spain. Both islands were discovered by Columbus in 1498. The Spanish, English, Dutch, and French figure in their history over four centuries. Trinidad and Tobago united in 1898 and were made part of the British colony of Trinidad and Tobago in 1899. The colony became an independent state in 1962. Trinidad was so named by Columbus either because he arrived on Trinity Sunday or because three mountain peaks suggested the Holy Trinity. Tobago was given the name by Columbus from the Haitian tambaku, pipe, from the natives' habit of smoking tobacco leaves.

Absorption, excretion, and distribution of dietary antioxidant betalains in LDLs: potential health effects of betalains in humans. (1/4)

BACKGROUND: Betalains were recently identified as natural antioxidants. However, little is known about their bioavailability from dietary sources. OBJECTIVE: The objective was to evaluate the bioavailability of betalains from dietary sources. DESIGN: The plasma kinetics and urinary excretion of betalains were studied in healthy volunteers (n = 8) after a single ingestion of 500 g cactus pear fruit pulp, which provided 28 and 16 mg indicaxanthin and betanin, respectively. The incorporation of betalains in LDL and the resistance of the particles to ex vivo-induced oxidation was also researched. RESULTS: Betanin and indicaxanthin reached their maximum plasma concentrations 3 h after the fruit meal and declined according to first-order kinetics. The half-life of betanin (0.94 +/- 0.07 h) was shorter than that of indicaxanthin (2.36 +/- 0.17 h). Both compounds had disappeared from plasma by 12 h after intake. The urinary excretion of indicaxanthin and betanin over 12 h represented 76 +/- 3.0% and 3.7 +/- 0.2%, respectively, of the ingested compounds. LDL isolated 3 and 5 h after the fruit meal incorporated betalains at concentrations of 100.5 +/- 11 and 50 +/- 7.2 pmol/mg LDL protein, respectively. In addition, the particles appeared more resistant to ex vivo-induced oxidative injury than did the samples isolated before fruit ingestion (P < 0.05)-the higher the amount of betalains incorporated, the higher the resistance. The concentrations of vitamin E and beta-carotene in LDL did not change significantly after fruit ingestion. CONCLUSION: Our results show that cactus pear fruit is a source of bioavailable betalains and suggest that indicaxanthin and betanin may be involved in the observed protection of LDL against ex vivo-induced oxidative modifications.  (+info)

Monitoring by liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry the impact of pH and temperature on the pigment pattern of cactus pear fruit extracts. (2/4)

The influence of pH and moderate heating (50 degrees C) on the color and individual betacyanin content of pigment extracts from cactus pear fruits (Opuntia stricta) is studied in the course of this paper. The study is carried out by using a high-performance liquid chromatograph equipped with a photodiode array detector and coupled to a mass spectrometer. The results point to a pH-dependent degradation mechanism, which is reflected in the chromatographic patterns obtained at different exposure times (0-28 h). At pH 3, 15-descarboxy-betanin is the most resistant betacyanin derivative. At pH 5, seven peaks are detected after 8 h, the most prominent being betanin, cyclo-dopa-5-O-beta-glucoside, and betalamic. In the assay conducted at pH 7, rapid color loss affects all the pigments, except for betanin.  (+info)

Betanin, a natural pigment that presents ubiquitously in plants, has been reported to show biological effects. However, not much is known on the effectiveness of betanin in regulating fat accumulation. Therefore, the aim of this study is to explore the inhibitory effect of betanin on adipogenesis in 3T3-L1 adipocytes and its mechanism action. The results show betanin significantly inhibited oil red O-stained material (OROSM) and triglyceride levels in 3T3-L1 adipocytes, indicating betanin inhibited lipid accumulation in 3T3-L1 adipocytes. In addition, the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ (PPARγ) expression was significantly inhibited in the betanin-treated adipocytes, implying that betanin suppressed the cellular PPARγexpression in 3T3-L1 adipocytes. Moreover, the suppression of lipid accumulation by betanin occurred by decreasing the gene expression of PPARγ, CCAAT-enhancer-binding protein α (C/EBPα) and sterol regulatory element binding protein 1c (SREBP-1c). Taken together, these
Application Note - Fractionation of Betanin Food Dyes on RENSA® PY ». Food colorants are important ingredients in food and beverage, and also pharmaceutical and cosmetic products. The trend within these industries is strongly moving away from artificial towards natural dyes originating preferably from plants, beetroot being one important source. The most important and most studied color compound in beetroot is betanin, also called beetroot red (E number E162).. This proof-of-concept investigation demonstrates that the resin RENSA® PY can separate betanin in an aqueous beetroot juice, and fractionate the dye compounds with the potential to retrieve a targeted fraction of a certain dye type. The process conditions are mild and neither salt gradients nor organic solvents are required for the dye separation.. Other resin types used for betanin retention such as reversed phase resins or ion exchangers typically do not display sufficient retention of the highly polar betanin, and require organic ...
Stem surface of a prickly pear cactus (Opuntia spp.) showing sunken stomata, scanning electron micrograph (SEM). Cacti typically have sunken stomata, which are an adaptation to drought conditions. An additional adaptation to a harsh environment is the fine covering of wax across the leaf or stem surface. Stomata (plural of stoma) are tiny openings in the epidermis of a plant that are surrounded by pairs of crescent-shaped cells, called guard cells (specialized parenchyma cells), that facilitate gas exchange. Stomata are present in the sporophyte generation of all land plant groups except liverworts. Prickly pear cacti typically grow with flat, rounded platyclades that are armed with two kinds of spines; large, smooth, fixed spines and small, hair like spines called glochids that easily penetrate skin and detach from the plant.

Ruminal fermentation is accompanied by production of methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2) which are greenhouses making the Earth warmer. Therefore, the sustainable production of CH4 and CO2 as well as fermentation kinetics when corn grain (CG) was replaced with prickly pear cactus flour (PC) was investigated. Besides, the effect of different levels of organic acid salts (OAS) was studied. Three total mixed rations used as substrates were prepared where CG was replaced with PC at three levels (/kg): 0 g (Control), 75 g (PC75) or 150 g (PC150). The OAS was used at three levels: 0, 5 and 10 mg/g dry matter (DM) of substrates. Asymptotic gas (GP), CH4, and CO2 productions as well as lag time had linear responses (P , 0.05) as PC level increased in the ration. Fractional rate of GP (P ¼ 0.007), GP, organic matter degradability, short chain fatty acid, and microbial biomass production (P , 0.001) were increased with increasing level of PC. Fermentation pH (P , 0.001), and DM degradability (P ¼ ...

Betalains represent a natural and safe alternative to colour synthetic additives that are used currently in food industry. In addition to the colouring property, betalains are of particular interest because of their importance in health: antimicrobial and antioxidant activity, radio-protective, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and detoxifying effect. This study compares different classics methods of betalains extraction, using water and weak acid solutions from fresh, dried and lyophilized beetroot. The highest content of betanin (20 mg /g) has been obtained from lyophilized beet using 0.5% citric acid and 0.1% ascorbic acid as solvents. In this study temperature, pH, liquid/solid ratio were considered the main factors which influence the performance of extraction process and stability of betanin. The extraction is better at high temperatures (70 C), regardless of the other two parameters. At low temperature it is necessary to increase the liquid/solid ratio and decrease the pH for getting a good ...
Researchers in the field of metabolic engineering aim to develop processes to produce. useful chemicals, sustainably and responsibly, using biotechnology. These processes are. often designed to replace products derived from fossil fuels, which are unsustainable and. contribute to climate change, or plant-based products, which compete with food. production for scarce land and are subject to supply uncertainty due to weather, crop. disease, and climate change. Here, we present two research projects in metabolic. engineering. First, we demonstrate microbial production of the red food dye betanin by. engineering the betalain biosynthesis pathway into yeast. Betanin is currently. manufactured through extraction from red beets specifically grown for dye production.. We achieved betanin production levels of 17 mg/L, which is equivalent to the amount of. betanin found in 10 g/L of beet extract. With further production improvements, this. bioprocess may become cost-competitive with agricultural ...

My first identification consideration was that it was the Opuntia ficus indica which are indigenous throughout Tropical America. One reason that this seemed a good candidate was that the pads of one of its several varieties take on a more reddish hue, as have mine. However, while its large flowers (mine are more mid-sized) are yellow in color, generally their stamens are as well while the centers of mine are green.. Next I looked at what with consideration of its flowers has been described as one of the most beautiful members of the genus the, also yellow-flowered, Opuntia gosseliniana. But, during the course of careful perusal, I noted that its pads are more discshaped. Opuntia tomentosa became my next candidate, but then I realized it sports flowers of orange-red with red perianth (the outer part of a flower) segments. Then, upon first seeing the flowers of the Opuntia humifusa, my initial inclination was Eureka, Ive found it! But, no, I realized that its flower petal tips were markedly ...

Papaya was the only studied food found to halt breast cancer. Scientists studied 14 plant foods commonly consumed in Mexico to determine their ability to halt breast cancer cell growth. These included avocado, black sapote, fuava, mango, prickly pear cactus (nopal), pineapple, grapes, tomato, and papaya. They also evaluated beta-carotene, total plant phenolics, and gallic acid contents and antioxidant capacity. They found that only papaya had a significant effect on stopping breast cancer cell growth. (International Journal of Food Science and Nutrition, May). Papaya is a store-house of cancer fighting lycopene. The intense orangey-pink color of papaya means it is chock full of cancer fighting carotenoids. Not only beta carotene, but lycopene is found in abundance. The construction of lycopene makes it highly reactive toward oxygen and free radicals. Scientists at the University of Illinois think this anti-oxidant activity contributes to its effectiveness as a cancer fighting agent. ...
In fact it is hard to imagine that they ever thought of having any other plant as their state flower when they began the selection process in 1901. Someone suggested the cotton boll, as cotton was certainly king at the time. Another wanted the prickly pear cactus. In the end it was the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America who put forward the buffalo clover or bluebonnet, Lupinus subcarnosus. And so this diminutive bluebonnet which grows in the sandy soils of the south Texas plains became the state flower. Now began the arguments. Others wanted L.texensis, a far more showy bluebonnet, to be the state flower. It took 70 years before the argument was settled. In 1971 the legislature combined the two species and any other variety not heretofore recorded There are actually three more species, L. havardii, L. cocinnus and L. plattensis. ...

The aim of this study was to map electrical activity over the ventricular epicardial surface during ventricular fibrillation (VF) in the human heart, and to document changes associated with ischaemia and reperfusion. In 5 patients undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass VF was induced by burst pacing, and three 30 s episodes of epicardial activity were recorded at 1 kHz using an epicardial sock with 256 unipolar contact electrodes. The first episode of activity was recorded at the start of VF, the second after 2 minutes of ischaemia, and the third during coronary reperfusion. Following 2 minutes of ischaemia the mean dominant frequency (DF) of the epicardial signals fell from 5.6 Hz to 4.5 Hz, and the mean number of epicardial phase singularities increased from 7.8 to 10.5. Following coronary reperfusion the mean DF increased to 6.5 Hz, but there was no significant change in the mean number of epicardial phase singularities.
This publication summarizes 25 years of heretofore unreported efforts to effect the biological control of prickly pear cacti infesting rangeland on Santa Cruz Island, situated off the coast of southern California. To date, partial to substantial biological control of the pest cacti, Opuntia littoralis (Engelmann) Cockerell, O. oricola Philbrick, and their hybrids, has been achieved. The principal biological control agent is a cochineal insect, Dactylopius sp., which is native to the southern California mainland. It was introduced to the island free of its principal natural enemies-Hyperaspis taeniata significanis Casey and Laetilia coccidivora (Comstock)-and has multiplied markedly, at the same time destroying numerous clumps of cacti throughout the island. Effective range management practices, i.e., eradication of wild sheep and restrained cattle grazing, have aided the biological control efforts, and both have resulted
The aim of study was investigation the impact of boiling and spontaneous fermentation on profile and content of betalains and antioxidant capacity of red beetroot. Betalains were analyzed by micro-HPLC-TOF-MS/MS method, while antioxidant capacity by three in vitro assays. Red beet products were abounded in betalains, with betanin, isobetanin, betanidin and vulgaxanthin I predominating among twenty two pigments identified. Boiling and fermentation of red beet reduced the content of betalains by 51-61% and 61-88%, respectively, however, this decline was limited when the peel was present. Microbial activity and softening of the matrix induced by the fermentation process led to the release of betalains responsible for strong antioxidant capacity of the juice formed. Generally, the treatment applied maintained and/or lowered antioxidant capacity of red beet materials obtained. Our findings indicate that red beet-derived products are valuable source of betalains, with their profile, content and ...

A compound found in beetroot that gives the vegetable its distinctive red colour could help prevent Alzheimers, finds a study that could lead to the development of drugs for treating the disease.. The findings showed that the compound betanin in beetroot extract could eventually help slow the accumulation of misfolded proteins in the brain, a process that is associated with Alzheimers disease.. Our data suggest that betanin shows some promise as an inhibitor of certain chemical reactions in the brain that are involved in the progression of Alzheimers disease, said Li-June Ming, from the University of South Florida.. Beta-amyloid is a sticky protein fragment, or peptide, that accumulates in the brain, disrupting communication between brain cells called neurons.. Much of the damage occurs, when beta-amyloid attaches itself to metals such as iron or copper.. These metals can cause beta-amyloid peptides to misfold and bind together in clumps that can promote inflammation and oxidation - a ...
Dear Friends. As we learned in last fridays Forward Thinking, epidemiological studies have suggested that reduction in cardiovascular disease, cancer risk and a range of other chronic disease conditions is linked to consumption of anthocyanins, betalains, chlorophylls and carotenoids (Mary Ann Lila 2004)-the primary pigments of colorful fruits and vegetables. Quite simply we need to eat 5-13 servings of vegetables and fruits a day (Harvard School of Public Health, see Green Facts below).. Last week we looked at betalains derived from red beetroot and cactus pears and their multitude of benefits. This week well look at anthocyanins and the protection they provide for a diverse array of diseases.. Heart Disease. Pure anthocyanins are up to seven times more effective as antioxidants inhibiting lipid peroxidation than alpha tocopherol. Anthocyanins in red wines and grape juice contributed to the ability of these dietary sources to inhibit heart attacks, by virtue of their antithrombotic potential, ...

any especially eagle eyed dg readers out there may think this scene looks a little familiar, thats because these are the Opunita I blogged about last year, when they were all tied up). Finally a week went by and it was obvious that the owner wasnt going to pick up this broken Opuntia paddle so I told my husband I was going to. You cant…its not yours was his response. Ok. He has a point. Its not. Just because I can see its not being loved doesnt mean that the owner doesnt have a higher and better use in mind, and just hasnt gotten around to it yet. It would be very bad plant karma to just pick it up and take it. Still I wondered and wanted ...

Many molecules that are considered to be "dietary fiber" are so because humans lack the necessary enzymes to split the glycosidic bond and they reach the large intestine. Many foods contain varying types of dietary fibers, all of which contribute to health in different ways. Dietary fibers make three primary contributions: bulking, viscosity and fermentation.[49] Different fibers have different effects, suggesting that a variety of dietary fibers contribute to overall health. Some fibers contribute through one primary mechanism. For instance, cellulose and wheat bran provide excellent bulking effects, but are minimally fermented. Alternatively, many dietary fibers can contribute to health through more than one of these mechanisms. For instance, psyllium provides bulking as well as viscosity. Bulking fibers can be soluble (i.e., psyllium) or insoluble (i.e., cellulose and hemicellulose). They absorb water and can significantly increase stool weight and regularity. Most bulking fibers are not ...
In soils, it is assumed that larger amounts of phenols are released from decomposing plant litter rather than from throughfall in any natural plant community.[citation needed] Decomposition of dead plant material causes complex organic compounds to be slowly oxidized lignin-like humus or to break down into simpler forms (sugars and amino sugars, aliphatic and phenolic organic acids), which are further transformed into microbial biomass (microbial humus) or are reorganized, and further oxidized, into humic assemblages (fulvic and humic acids), which bind to clay minerals and metal hydroxides.[citation needed] There has been a long debate about the ability of plants to uptake humic substances from their root systems and to metabolize them.[citation needed] There is now a consensus about how humus plays a hormonal role rather than simply a nutritional role in plant physiology.[citation needed] In the soil, soluble phenols face four different fates. They might be degraded and mineralized as a carbon ...
The term carotene (also carotin, from the Latin carota, "carrot"[1][2]) is used for many related unsaturated hydrocarbon substances having the formula C40Hx, which are synthesized by plants but in general cannot be made by animals (with the exception of some aphids and spider mites which acquired the synthesizing genes from fungi).[3] Carotenes are photosynthetic pigments important for photosynthesis. Carotenes contain no oxygen atoms. They absorb ultraviolet, violet, and blue light and scatter orange or red light, and (in low concentrations) yellow light. Carotenes are responsible for the orange colour of the carrot, for which this class of chemicals is named, and for the colours of many other fruits, vegetables and fungi (for example, sweet potatoes, chanterelle and orange cantaloupe melon). Carotenes are also responsible for the orange (but not all of the yellow) colours in dry foliage. They also (in lower concentrations) impart the yellow coloration to milk-fat and butter. Omnivorous animal ...
The highest recorded amount appears to be specifically in the seed coat of black soybean (Glycine max L. Merr.) containing approximately 2 g per 100 g,[27] in purple corn kernels and husks, and in the skins and pulp of black chokeberry (Aronia melanocarpa L.) (see table). Due to critical differences in sample origin, preparation, and extraction methods determining anthocyanin content,[28][29] the values presented in the adjoining table are not directly comparable. Nature, traditional agriculture methods, and plant breeding have produced various uncommon crops containing anthocyanins, including blue- or red-flesh potatoes and purple or red broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, carrots, and corn. Garden tomatoes have been subjected to a breeding program using introgression lines of genetically modified organisms (but not incorporating them in the final purple tomato) to define the genetic basis of purple coloration in wild species that originally were from Chile and the Galapagos Islands.[30] The ...
Condensed tannins can be characterised by a number of techniques including depolymerisation, asymmetric flow field flow fractionation or small-angle X-ray scattering. DMACA is a dye used for localization of procyanidin compounds in plant histology. The use of the reagent results in blue staining.[11] It can also be used to titrate procyanidins. Total phenols (or antioxidant effect) can be measured using the Folin-Ciocalteu reaction. Results are typically expressed as gallic acid equivalents (GAE). Procyanidins from field beans (Vicia faba)[12] or barley[13] have been estimated using the vanillin-HCl method, resulting in a red color of the test in the presence of catechin or proanthocyanidins. Procyanidins can be titrated using the Procyanidolic Index (also called the Bates-Smith Assay). It is a testing method that measures the change in color when the product is mixed with certain chemicals. The greater the color changes, the higher the PCOs content is. However, the Procyanidolic Index is a ...
True polyphenols from the tannin and other WBSSH types are routinely biosynthesized in the natural sources from which they derive; their 'chemical' syntheses (using standard "bench" organic chemical methods) were somewhat limited until the first decade of the new millennium because these syntheses involve challenging regioselectivity and stereoselectivity issues.[11] Early work focused on the achiral synthesis of phenolic-related components of polyphenols in the late 70's,[12] and the Nelson and Meyers synthesis of the permethyled derivative of the ubiquitous diphenic acid core of ellagitannins in 1994[13] followed by stereoselective synthesis of more complex permethylated structures such as a (+)-tellimagrandin II derivative by Lipshutz and coworkers in the same year,[14] and Itoh and coworker's synthesis of a permethylated pedunculagin with particular attention to axial symmetry issues in 1996.[15] The total synthesis of a fully unmasked polyphenol, that of the ellagitannin tellimagrandin I, ...

Carotenoids are a type of terpenoid (sometimes referred to as isoprenoids), which are hydrocarbons resulting from the combination of several five-carbon isoprene units. Specifically, they are tetraterpenoids, which means they are derived from 8 isoprene units-meaning they typically contain 40 carbon atoms. Structurally they are in the form of a polyene chain that is sometimes terminated by rings. Polyenes are poly-unsaturated organic compounds that contain one or more sequences of alternating double and single carbon-carbon bonds. These double carbon-carbon bonds interact in a process known as conjugation, which results in an overall lower energy state of the molecule. Carotenoids are mainly aliphatic and aliphatic-alicyclic polyenes, with a few aromatic polyenes (McGraw-Hill 2005). (Aromatic compounds contain benzene rings or similar rings of atoms, while aliphatic compounds, such as fat and oil, do not contain aromatic rings; alicyclic are organic compounds that are both aliphatic and cyclic.) ...
