Analysis of the effects of food and of digestive secretions on the small intestine of the rat. 1. Mucosal morphology and epithelial replacement. (1/3041)

A modified Roux-en-Y repositioning of rat small intestine was performed so that the proximal segment of bowel (A) received only bile and pancreastic secretions, the second (B) received food direct from the stomach, and these two segments drained into a third (C). Four to five weeks after operation, cell production was assessed by injection of vincristine into operated, sham-operated and unoperated rats, and counts of blocked metaphases were made on isolated microdissected crypts. Villus height, crypt depth, and the number of crypts per villus (crypt/villus ratio) were also measured. Most of segment A showed no significant differences from sham-operated intestine, although the normal proximo-distal gradient of villus height was abolished. At the distal end (near the anastomosis with segments B and C), crypt depth and cell production were increased. The villus height gradient in segment B was also abolished, although crypt depth and cell production were significantly increased, especially at the proximal end. Crypt/villus ratio was also increased. Segment C showed all the characteristics of small bowel promoted to a more proximal position: increased villus height, crypt depth and cell production. Increased crypt/villus ratio was also observed. These results are discussed in terms of the role of food and of digestive secretions in the control of mucosal morphology and epithelial replacement.  (+info)

Post-ingestive feedbacks and associative learning regulate the intake of unsuitable sterols in a generalist grasshopper. (2/3041)

Behavioural studies of the grasshopper Schistocerca americana were undertaken to identify the mechanisms that regulate the intake of dietary sterols. In the first experiment, grasshoppers were allowed to feed on spinach, a plant containing only unsuitable sterols; immediately after this first meal, a suitable or unsuitable sterol was injected into the haemolymph. Grasshoppers injected with unsuitable sterols had second meals on spinach that were significantly shorter than those of grasshoppers injected with suitable sterols, indicating that unsuitable dietary sterols are detected post-ingestively. In the second experiment, grasshoppers were fed food containing only unsuitable sterols and were then presented with glass-fibre discs containing different concentrations of a suitable sterol or sucrose only (the control). The results suggest that grasshoppers do not use a direct feedback operating on mouthpart chemoreceptors to regulate their intake of suitable sterols. In the third experiment, grasshoppers were presented with artificial diets containing different sterols and flavours, and feeding was observed over a sequence of meals. The results from both the first and last experiments suggest a role for associative learning in regulating the intake of unsuitable sterols.  (+info)

Muscarinic blockade inhibits gastric emptying of mixed-nutrient meal: effects of weight and gender. (3/3041)

We compared the vagal contribution to gastric emptying in lean and obese subjects by monitoring gastric emptying of a meal during muscarinic blockade. Lean (n = 6) and obese subjects (n = 6) underwent two treatments: 1) saline infusion and 2) atropine infusion [0.4 mg/m2 bolus, 0.4 mg. (m2)-1. h-1] for 2 h, initiated 30 min before ingestion of a 600-kcal breakfast (64% carbohydrate, 23% fat, 13% protein) composed of orange juice (labeled with Indium-111), egg sandwich (labeled with Technetium-99m), cereal, milk, and banana. Anterior and posterior images were taken every 90 s for 90 min using a dual-headed camera. Atropine significantly delayed emptying of both solid (P < 0.007) and liquid (P < 0.002). Obese subjects exhibited a greater delay in liquid emptying during muscarinic blockade compared with lean subjects (P < 0.02). Female subjects exhibited a slower rate of gastric emptying and were less sensitive to atropine. These data suggest that obese subjects exhibit altered gastric cholinergic activity compared with lean subjects and that gender differences in gastric emptying rate may be due to differences in autonomic tone.  (+info)

Needs assessment following hurricane Georges--Dominican Republic, 1998. (4/3041)

Hurricane Georges struck the Carribean Islands in September 1998, causing numerous deaths and extensive damage throughout the region. The Dominican Republic was hardest hit, with approximately 300 deaths; extensive infrastructure damage; and severe agricultural losses, including staple crops of rice, plantain, and cassava. Two months after the hurricane, the American Red Cross (ARC) was asked to provide food to an estimated 170,000 families affected by the storm throughout the country. To assist in directing relief efforts, CDC performed a needs assessment to estimate the food and water availability, sanitation, and medical needs of the hurricane-affected population. This report summarizes the results of that assessment, which indicate that, 2 months after the disaster, 40% of selected families had insufficient food > or =5 days per and 28% of families reported someone in need of medical attention.  (+info)

Abbreviated measures of food sufficiency validly estimate the food security level of poor households: measuring household food security. (5/3041)

This study was designed to develop an abbreviated method that captures both the qualitative and quantitative dimensions of household food security (HFS). Women in poor and very poor households (n = 238) in a peri-urban barrio in Caracas, Venezuela, provided data on food availability and their perception of food resource constraints and hunger experiences within the home. Socioeconomic data and food-related behavior that may predict HFS levels were gathered. On average, the top 12 food contributors of energy provided 81% and predicted more than 90% of the variation in households' total energy availability using stepwise regression analysis. On the other hand, a 4-point 12-item scale was shown to have face, content and construct validity with reiterative testing, factor analysis and a Chronbach's alpha coefficient of 0.92. Assessing predictors of energy availability together with a self-perceived HFS scale may provide a valid and reliable method for identifying and monitoring food security levels among poor urban households.  (+info)

Dietary determinants of colorectal proliferation in the normal mucosa of subjects with previous colon adenomas. (7/3041)

Dietary determinants of colorectal mucosa proliferation were studied in 69 subjects previously operated for at least two sporadic colon adenomas. Information on recent dietary habits was collected by a validated food frequency questionnaire, and proliferation was measured by [3H]thymidine incorporation in colorectal biopsies by determining the labeling index (LI) and the percentage of LI in the upper part of the crypt, two parameters that are increased in subjects at high risk of colon cancer. The LI was significantly higher in women as compared with men (P = 0.01). Diet showed several associations with colorectal mucosa proliferation: (a) subjects in the highest tertile of fish consumption had a significantly lower LI (P = 0.0013) compared with those in the lower tertiles [5.20 +/- 1.87 versus 6.80 +/- 2.18 (mean +/- SD)]; (b) subjects with a low red meat consumption had lower proliferation in the upper part of the crypt [2.38 +/- 2.10, 5.30 +/- 4.62, and 5.89 +/- 4.82 in the low, middle, and high tertile of consumption, respectively (mean +/- SD); P = 0.0093]; (c) according to estimated nutrient intakes, the LI was lower in subjects reporting a high intake of starch (P = 0.006) and higher in subjects with a low intake of beta-carotene (P = 0.002). The results show that subjects reporting a diet rich in fish, starch, and beta-carotene and low in red meat had lower colorectal mucosa proliferation and a normal pattern of proliferation along the crypt. Given the correlation between colorectal proliferative activity and colon cancer risk, such a dietary pattern might be beneficial for subjects at high risk of colon cancer.  (+info)

Food groups and colorectal cancer risk. (8/3041)

Most studies of diet and colorectal cancer have considered nutrients and micronutrients, but the role of foods or food groups remains open to debate. To elucidate the issue, we examined data from a case-control study conducted between 1992 and 1997 in the Swiss canton of Vaud. Cases were 223 patients (142 men, 81 women) with incident, histologically confirmed colon (n= 119) or rectal (n= 104) cancer (median age 63 years), linked with the Cancer Registry of the Swiss Canton of Vaud, and controls were 491 subjects (211 men, 280 women, median age 58 years) admitted to the same university hospital for a wide spectrum of acute non-neoplastic conditions unrelated to long-term modifications of diet. Odds ratios (OR) were obtained after allowance for age, sex, education, smoking, alcohol, body mass index, physical activity and total energy intake. Significant associations were observed for refined grain (OR = 1.32 for an increase of one serving per day), and red meat (OR = 1.54), pork and processed meat (OR = 1.27), alcohol (OR = 1.28), and significant protections for whole grain (OR = 0.85), raw (OR = 0.85) and cooked vegetables (OR = 0.69), citrus (OR = 0.86) and other fruits (OR = 0.85), and for coffee (OR = 0.73). Garlic was also protective (OR = 0.32 for the highest tertile of intake). These findings in a central European population support the hypothesis that a diet rich in refined grains and red meat increases the risk of colorectal cancer; they, therefore, support the recommendation to substitute whole grains for refined grain, to limit meat intake, and to increase fruit and vegetable consumption.  (+info)

In a policy outlook, Rising Food Prices, Poverty, and the Doha Round, Sandra Polaski examines the role of a Doha agreement in light of rising food prices and their impact on global poverty. She finds that conventional wisdom about the price rises, their effect on the poor, and how best to respond is largely wrong.. Polaski reviews the causes of high food prices that are susceptible to action by governments, including several that grew out of past policy mistakes. She presents recent evidence on how food prices affect the poor.. Polaski points out that all sophisticated models of the Doha Round conclude that it would raise food prices modestly, but she argues that a carefully crafted agreement could nonetheless play a positive role in improving global food security and reducing future hunger and poverty. However, proper diagnosis of the problem will be required to avoid counterproductive measures that could have disastrous results ...

In this paper, we present an approach to format national food consumption data at raw agricultural commodity (RAC) level. In this way, the data is both formatted in a harmonised way given the comparability of RACs between countries, and suitable to assess the dietary exposure to chemicals analysed in RACs at a European level. In this approach, consumption data needs to be converted to edible part of RAC (e-RAC) level using a RAC conversion database. To subsequently use this data in exposure assessments, both e-RACs and RACs analysed in chemical control programmes should be classified via a uniform system. Furthermore, chemical concentrations in RACs may need to be converted to e-RAC level using processing factors. To illustrate the use of this approach, we describe how the Dutch RAC conversion database was used to convert consumption data of four national consumption surveys to e-RAC level, and the use of the FAO/WHO Codex Classification system of Foods and Animal Feeds to harmonise the ...
OBJECTIVE To assess the validity of nutrient profiling Model WXYfm - developed for the purpose of regulating the promotion of less healthy foods to children. The model ranks foods according to their healthiness and categorises foods into healthier and less healthy foods. DESIGN Convergent and discriminant validity was tested by comparing the way Model WXYfm categorises foods with the way the UKs national food guide - the Balance of Good Health (BGH) - categorises foods. Construct validity was assessed by testing a hypothesis relating the constructs of healthiness of foods (as measured by Model WXYfm) and the healthiness of diets (measured using the Diet Quality Index) and assessing whether this hypothesis was confirmed or refuted by using data on the dietary patterns of subjects (n = 1117) of the National Diet and Nutrition Survey of adults carried out in Great Britain in 2000-01. RESULTS Model WXYfm showed good convergent and discriminant validity: the level of agreement between the way

Food price increases are posing a threat to household food security in many developing countries - particularly among children and pregnant women.. Poor households spending as much as 70 per cent of their income on food are most at risk. The most vulnerable populations include people depending on humanitarian assistance, orphans, those affected by HIV and AIDS, refugees and poor urban families.. UNICEFs principal concern is to address nutrition insecurity of these vulnerable populations. At the household level, the rise in food prices can impact food availability and food choice, especially in poor households that already lack food. Children are at a higher risk of being adversely affected as they need a high quality and nutritiously diversified diet. Women are also at great risk as they may reduce their own caloric intake in favour of their children, pregnant and lactating women being most vulnerable due to high nutritional needs. Apart from the nutritional, health and other consequences ...

Various dietary components may modify chronic inflammatory processes at the stage of cytokine production, amplification of nuclear factor-κB-mediated inflammatory gene expression, and the release of anti-inflammatory cytokine, transforming growth factor-β. This review provides a synopsis of the strengths and weaknesses of the evidence that specific bioactive food components influence inflammation-related targets linked to cancer. A target repeatedly surfacing as a site of action for several dietary components is transforming growth factor β. Whereas the use of dietary intervention strategies offers intriguing possibilities for maintaining normal cell function by modifying a process that is essential for cancer development and progression, more information is needed to characterize the minimum quantity of the bioactive food components required to bring about a change in inflammation-mediated cancer, the ideal time for intervention, and the importance of genetics in determining the response. ...

Did you know that the foods and drinks you put in your mouth have a lot to do with how moody, bitchy, tired, emotional or psychotic you feel? This is a good thing! Not only does it mean that you arent really Cruella De Vils long-lost sibling, but that you can start to balance your moods just by paying attention to what is on your plate.. Here are five ways food can mess with your moods. 1. Adrenal fatigue. This one has to do with more than what you eat, as stress is a major player when it comes to grinding on your adrenals. But eating a poor quality diet makes you much more susceptible to adrenal fatigue. The finger can mainly be pointed at drinking lots of coffee, eating refined sugars (white sugar) and refined carbohydrates (white bread, pasta, rice, cakes etc.) and eating meal after meal of processed, chemical-laden food like substances. Your adrenal glands are super important for a healthy immune system. They are necessary for proper thyroid function, balancing your hormones, maintaining ...

Beth*. Its true that chewing starts the digestive process. Even if you spit a food out, your saliva has already begun to break down the sugars.. People who chew and spit out food can end up with dental problems, including cavities and gum disease. Chewing food also signals stomach acids to kick in, ready to do their job of digesting food. But without the actual food to digest, this may cause stomach problems.. Some calories in the food you chew will be absorbed into your body - how many depends on the type of food, how long the food is in your mouth, and how much you might swallow. Whats interesting is that many people who chew and spit food end up gaining, not losing, weight. Why? Experts dont know for sure, but its likely that people who try too hard to restrict calories or certain foods end up compensating by overeating later. And, depending on how often you chew and spit, your body may not be getting the nutrients it needs.. Chewing and spitting out food is a sign of disordered eating. A ...
Specific Aims: Environmental factors contributing to overconsumption, such as larger food portion sizes, may be contributing to the obesity epidemic. The objective of the proposed study is to examine the independent and combined effects of portion size and quantity of food on intake in normal weight males and females. Participants will be randomly assigned to one of four conditions varying in the portion size and quantity of junk food provided: small quantity of food packaged in small portions (SSP), small quantity of food packaged in large portions (SLP), large quantity of food packaged in small portions (LSP), and large quantity of food packaged in large portions (LLP). A box containing four different junk foods, packaged according to one of the four conditions, will be given to participants to take home for three days. The total amount of food consumed from the box over the three days will be measured. It is anticipated that portion size and quantity of food, both independently and combined, ...
He says: Arthritis is no more an age-related disorder and does not affect only those above 45 years. This is basically more relevant to the teenage generations who are not particular about their timings of the food, their content of the food. Osteoporosis means a lack of calcium in bones even in young patients. So young patients form to get early arthritis.. He lists down a few food items that can worsen your condition:. Refined Sugars: Sugary food can be a risk factor for arthritis. Chocolates, ice-cream, aerated drinks, all sweets to be avoided. Red meat: Red meat can worsen your problem. It is a source of inflammation in arthritis.. Excessive salt intake: Avoid canned soups and foods that have excessive use of salt.. Deep-fried foods: Fried foods can be inflammatory and excessively worsen arthritis because it is made of high Omega fatty acids.. Foods to be taken on the regular basis ...
Food enzymes present in raw food are present in the diet. Food enzymes digest the food in the stomach and it works for one hour before digestive systems start its work. Therefore, food enzymes are considered essential nutrients for the human body. Globally, the food enzymes are in the growth phase and it will have promising CAGR in the coming future. Increasing consumer interest in processed food and increasing the use of food enzymes to make processing food healthier and environment-friendly drive the growth of food enzymes market. In addition to this the growing adoption of food enzymes in processed, packaged and frozen food manufacturing fuel the demand for food enzymes market. Globally, due to various research programs done on food enzymes increased the awareness of its benefits which enhance the market growth.
Economic growth in developing countries and globalization of the food sector is leading to increasingly similar food consumption patterns worldwide. The aim of this study was to describe similarities and differences in the contributions of main food groups to energy and nutrient intakes in five developed countries across three continents. We obtained summary reports of national food consumption survey data from Australia, France, Denmark, the Netherlands, and the United States. Survey years spanned 2003-2012; sample size ranged from 1444 to 17,386. To mitigate heterogeneity of food groups across countries, we recategorized each surveys reported food groups and subgroups into eight main food groups and, for three countries, a ninth
Michael Bloomberg, the mayor of NYC, has just signed several bills into law which will reform the food system by promoting urban farming, sustainable, and local food.. This package of legislation is a key component of City Council Speaker Christine Quinns highly praised Food Works plan, which is designed to significantly overhaul our regional food system.. Two of the bills promote rooftop gardens, which makes sense in a city with a seemingly unlimited sea of big buildings. Imagine if the majority of the rooftops were growing food, that would go a long way to feed the citizens and stimulate the economy.. This is great news, and perhaps will spark a trend in many other cities. With rising food costs and a weak economy, local food makes more and more sense.. ...
Health Canada recommends infants be exclusively breastfed for the first six months with the gradual introduction of solid foods around six months of age; with continued breastfeeding until 2 years and beyond, or for as long as the mother and child desire.. It is recommended that babies are offered iron-rich nutritious foods as part of their first foods. Foods can be introduced in any order, provided iron-rich foods are included and the food textures are suitable and safe for the infants age and stage of development.. It can be an exciting time where babies explore new flavours and textures, parents learn about their babys feeding cues and food preferences. So go ahead and grab your camera, and prepare to relax and have a messy fun time! Keep in mind!. ...

Background: Recent detailed analyses of data on dietary sources of energy and nutrients in US children are lacking. The objective of this study was to identify food sources of energy and 28 nutrients for children in the United States. Methods: Analyses of food sources were conducted using a single 24-h recall collected from children 2 to 18 years old (n = 7332) in the 2003-2006 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. Sources of nutrients contained in foods were determined using nutrient composition databases. Food grouping included ingredients from disaggregated mixtures. Mean energy and nutrient intakes from the total diet and from each food group were adjusted for the sample design using appropriate weights. Percentages of the total dietary intake that food sources contributed were tabulated by rank order. Results: The two top ranked food/food group sources of energy and nutrients were: energy - milk (7% of energy) and cake/cookies/quick bread/pastry/pie (7%); protein - milk (13.2%) and

On Phase One of The Kaufmann Diet, you are eliminating many of the foods people eat on a daily basis, including sugar, grains, corn, peanuts and soy. While these do not seem like a huge group of foods, when you look at the wide variety of foods containing these as ingredients, you realize the scope of foods eliminated from the diet. These foods include breads, cakes, crackers, candy, most snack foods and processed foods. These relatively few ingredients make up an enormous section of our industrialized food system. Unfortunately, these relatively few ingredients are among a group of foods most likely to be contaminated with mold poisons; this means that if you eat these foods or processed foods containing these few ingredients on a regular basis, the likelihood is high that you are exposing yourself to energy and health-sucking mold toxins. Conversely, there are some foods that you absolutely should be eating every day as part of Phase One of the Kaufmann Diet for the inherent health benefits. ...

In 1988, California passed its first law to limit the liability of food donors to nonprofit charitable organizations and food banks.[1] In October 2017, the Legislature passed a bill known as the California Good Samaritan Food Donation Act (the Act)[2] to further encourage food donations and to clarify and expand the existing protections for food donors. The Act is effective as of January 1, 2018.. The Act provides limitations on liability for food donations made by any person, gleaner or food facility.[3] Under the Act, a person, gleaner, or food facility that donates food that is fit for human consumption is not liable for any injury resulting from the consumption of donated food. Liability results only if the injury is the result of the gross negligence or intentional misconduct of the donor in the preparation or handling of the donated food.[4] Gross negligence, the more lenient of these two standards, requires a lack of even scant care or an extreme departure from the ordinary standard of ...
My first year on SCD involved a lot of trial and error and cutting out certain foods. I discovered nuts didnt agree with me in large amounts. Too many vegetables, even if cooked, would aggravate digestive issues. Too much fruit or honey and I was a raving lunatic craving carbs (even dreaming about them!). So I spent a lot of time cutting out food and narrowing down to a base safe diet.. The second year on SCD, after reading articles from a number of sources like the Weston A. Price Foundation, I started to change my thinking. Rather than focusing on cutting out food, I realized I needed to add more nutrient-dense food to my diet. I could cut out all the food that irritated my already damaged gut, but until I got enough nutrients to repair and heal that damaged gut, I would not be able to truly be healthy. SCD alone is a very nourishing diet, but focusing on a few key foods can really bring about a lot of healing.. I was surprised when I had been on SCD for over a year and stopped taking B ...

The truth is that I have no problem at all gaining weight when I overeat on junk food or processed food in general. I can guarantee you that if I was overeating on those foods during the 6 weeks, I would have gained a massive amount of weight..

A healthy and balanced diet regimen produces a healthy life, when paired with a regular exercise regimen and appropriate sleep. While we may be at convenience consuming a variety of healthy and balanced foods at a young age, our bodies go through change as we age, consequently ensuring apparently healthy foods much less suitable to our health and wellness. Usually, we disregard the effect that age carries our capability to process particular foods, thus affecting our physiological functioning in the future.. As the years roll by, our body organs slowly start to lose their nimble fixing power, making recovery from the effects of specific foods fairly tiring on our wellness.

Processed foods get a lot of bad press especially if you have arthritis. From French fries and hot dogs, to bacon and breakfast cereals, highly processed foods can fuel inflammation and, consequently, your joint pain, research suggests. üWhile what constitutes a processed food seems clear, the reality is that processed foods aren t just junk food and microwave meals. The term processed food applies to more foods than you think, says registered dietitian Lillian Craggs-Dino, DHA, RDN, with Cleveland Clinic Florida s Bariatric and Metabolic Institute.

Have you ever had a strong craving for a food that you know is bad for you? For many of us, we experience strong cravings for some type of food on a daily basis. Sometimes these cravings are so strong that the particular food we are craving becomes all we can think about or focus on until that food is consumed. These cravings are usually triggered by something in our environment that reminds us of the specific food and they can lead to overeating.. A recent study, conducted by Carey Morewedge, a psychologist at Carnegie Mellon University, concluded that by imagining yourself eating a specific food, you can reduce your interest in that food and therefore eat less of it. This is known as habituation and is thought to occur naturally when we eat. Habituation was previously thought to only occur while you are actually eating but Morewedges study has found that this can occur through the power of your own mind.. The answer to stopping a food craving does not come by thinking just about how the food ...

Having studied Classical Asian food cures for years, I regard food as substances that have an effect on the body/mind. All foods, without exception, have an energetic quality that in premodern cultures was used medicinally - both preventatively and as cure...this is how food was at one point regarded in most cultures, not as entertainment or just as fuel. It was known that some foods are dampening, some are drying, some are cooling, some induce heat, some are diuretic, some are stimulants or sedatives, etc... For example: green beans are a diuretic, black beans are an internal lubricant, honey lubricates the intestines but has an overall drying effect on the body, buckwheat can overstimulate the mind, sweeteners can dull the mind. Some foods have specific effects on specific organs of the body. Everything we ingest has some sort of energetic qualitative effect on the body and internal energetic processes. The body also does better with certain foods/herbs/tastes in certain seasons - this is ...

We all know how influential nourishment is to our healthiness and well-being. The food stuff that we have offers all of the essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that are vital to our long-standing physical condition. Consuming vitamins, minerals and antioxidants as supplements is also useful to our health but science has exposed that consuming a beneficial and diverse nutritional regime is more valuable to our wellbeing because of the synergy between foodstuff.. The foods located in nature are rich in phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. When they are pooled all together they function even more effectively. Combining particular foods can exponentially swell the wellbeing benefits of each food compared to taking the foods on their own. The nutritional synergy expands the health-promoting capabilities.. This nutritional synergy from mixing foods appears to be something that cannot be copied in a lab. Even the most advanced multivitamin cant copy this nutritional synergy. ...
Evidence is rapidly accumulating that specific components of food, alone or in combination with one another, have potent effects upon prevention of a wide variety of neoplasms. Bioactive food components in cancer prevention have been studied, and the complexity of the issue is daunting. Reviewing the potential nutrient modifiers of prostate cancer illustrates the complexity, especially given the difficulties in using blood levels to measure their response, their intake, and their actions. Nutrient modifiers being studied for prostate cancer include: allylsulfides, considered the most important potential nutrient modifier; calcium and Vitamin D (the latter causes differentiation and regulates calcium metabolism); epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), obtained from tea and related compounds (this modifier has been related to prostate cancer prevalence); fatty acids found in fish, which appear to relate to the decrease in prostate cancer with fish intake; genistein from soy, which has estrogenic ...

  • Additives are needed to ensure processed food remains safe and in good condition throughout its journey from factories or industrial kitchens, during transportation to warehouses and shops, and finally to consumers. (
  • The use of food additives is only justified when their use has a technological need, does not mislead consumers, and serves a well-defined technological function, such as to preserve the nutritional quality of the food or enhance the stability of the food. (

  • We lack the enzyme to break down a FODMAP in these foods, so our gut bacteria must digest them, which produces gas. (
  • E. coli (Escherichia coli) is a type of bacteria that lives in the digestive tracts of warm-blooded organisms and can cause serious health impacts to people who are exposed-often through contaminated food and water. (
  • Food scientist Lili He and colleagues at the University of Massachusetts Amherst report that they have developed a new, rapid and low-cost method for detecting bacteria in water or a food sample. (
  • A summer high school student in He's food science laboratory developed a simple smart phone app that visually detects bacteria in samples that contain the chip. (
  • The standard method for culturing bacteria from food samples, known as an aerobic plate count (APC) takes two days, He explains. (
  • To address the food interference problem, the researchers designed the UMass Amherst chip to attract only bacteria but not sugars, fats and proteins in food or dirt. (
