Microbial quality of oysters sold in Western Trinidad and potential health risk to consumers. (1/85)

The prevalence and characteristics of Escherichia coli and Salmonella spp. as well as counts of E. coli in raw oysters, condiments/spices, and raw oyster cocktails sampled from 72 vendors across Western Trinidad were determined. The microbial quality of the water used in the preparation of raw oysters was also investigated. Of 200 samples each of raw oysters, condiments/spices and oyster cocktails tested, 154 (77.0%), 89 (44.5%) and 154 (77.0%) respectively yielded E. coli. The differences were statistically significant (P = < 0.001; chi square = 62.91). The mean E. coli count per g in the ready-to-eat oyster cocktail ranged from 1.5 x 10(3) +/- 2.7 x 10(3) in Couva to 8.7x10(6) +/- 4.9x10(7) in San Fernando. One hundred and forty-six (73.0%) oyster cocktails contaminated with E. coli had counts that exceeded the recommended standard of 16 per g. Of a total of 590 E. coli isolates from various sources tested, 24 (4.1%), 20 (3.4%) and 69 (11.7%) were mucoid, haemolytic and non-sorbitol fermenters respectively. Twelve (2.0%) isolates of E. coli were O157 strains, while 92 (46.0%) of 200 E. coli isolates tested belonged to enteropathogenic serogroups. Ninety (45.0%) and 73 (36.5%) of 200 water samples contained total coliforms and faecal coliforms respectively, with counts that exceeded 2.2 coliforms per 100 ml. Salmonella spp. were isolated from 7 (3.5%), 1 (0.5%) and 2 (1.0%) of 200 samples each, of raw oysters, condiments/spices and oyster cocktails respectively. Oysters pose a health risk to consumers in Trinidad, particularly from colibacillosis and salmonellosis, and the need for increased public awareness of this hazard cannot be over-emphasized.  (+info)

Curcumin-containing diet inhibits diethylnitrosamine-induced murine hepatocarcinogenesis. (2/85)

Curcumin has been widely used as a spice and coloring agent in foods. Recently, curcumin was found to possess chemopreventive effects against skin cancer, forestomach cancer, colon cancer and oral cancer in mice. Clinical trials of curcumin for prevention of human cancers are currently ongoing. In this study, we examine the chemopreventive effect of curcumin on murine hepatocarcinogenesis. C3H/HeN mice were injected i.p. with N-diethylnitrosamine (DEN) at the age of 5 weeks. The curcumin group started eating 0.2% curcumin-containing diet 4 days before DEN injection until death. The mice were then serially killed at the scheduled times to examine the development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and changes in intermediate biological markers. At the age of 42 weeks, the curcumin group, as compared with the control group (DEN alone), had an 81% reduction in multiplicity (0.5 versus 2.57) and a 62% reduction in incidence (38 versus 100%) of development of HCC. A series of intermediate biological markers were examined by western blot. While hepatic tissues obtained from the DEN-treated mice showed a remarkable increase in the levels of p21(ras), PCNA and CDC2 proteins, eating a curcumin-containing diet reversed the levels to normal values. These results indicate that curcumin effectively inhibits DEN-induced hepatocarcinogenesis in the mouse. The underlying mechanisms of the phenomenon and the feasibility of using curcumin in the chemoprevention of human HCC should be further explored.  (+info)

Alpha-glucosidase inhibitors from clove (Syzgium aromaticum). (3/85)

The ellagitannins, casuarictin and eugeniin, were isolated as rat intestinal maltase inhibitors from methanol extracts of clove (Syzgium aromaticum). Eugeniin showed inhibitory activity with an IC50 value of 10(-3) M. A structure-activity relationship study among the isolates and their related compound, penta-O-galloyl-beta-D-glucose, indicates that an increasing number of galloyl units in the molecule might lead to an increase in the inhibitory activity. Eugeniin also inhibited maltase activity toward the human intestinal epithelial cell line, Caco-2.  (+info)

The curry spice curcumin reduces oxidative damage and amyloid pathology in an Alzheimer transgenic mouse. (4/85)

Inflammation in Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients is characterized by increased cytokines and activated microglia. Epidemiological studies suggest reduced AD risk associates with long-term use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Whereas chronic ibuprofen suppressed inflammation and plaque-related pathology in an Alzheimer transgenic APPSw mouse model (Tg2576), excessive use of NSAIDs targeting cyclooxygenase I can cause gastrointestinal, liver, and renal toxicity. One alternative NSAID is curcumin, derived from the curry spice turmeric. Curcumin has an extensive history as a food additive and herbal medicine in India and is also a potent polyphenolic antioxidant. To evaluate whether it could affect Alzheimer-like pathology in the APPSw mice, we tested a low (160 ppm) and a high dose of dietary curcumin (5000 ppm) on inflammation, oxidative damage, and plaque pathology. Low and high doses of curcumin significantly lowered oxidized proteins and interleukin-1beta, a proinflammatory cytokine elevated in the brains of these mice. With low-dose but not high-dose curcumin treatment, the astrocytic marker GFAP was reduced, and insoluble beta-amyloid (Abeta), soluble Abeta, and plaque burden were significantly decreased by 43-50%. However, levels of amyloid precursor (APP) in the membrane fraction were not reduced. Microgliosis was also suppressed in neuronal layers but not adjacent to plaques. In view of its efficacy and apparent low toxicity, this Indian spice component shows promise for the prevention of Alzheimer's disease.  (+info)

Effects of seasoning and heating device on mutagenicity and heterocyclic amines in cooked beef. (5/85)

Pan-roasted beef showed a lower mutagenicity after various degrees of cooking than charcoaled one. The high mutagenicity of charcoaled beef was due to the formation of more heterocyclic amines, especially AalphaC (2-amino-9H-pyrido- [2,3-b]indole) and PhIP (2-amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo[4,5-b]pyridine) because of rapid and direct heating on the surface of the meat at a high temperature. Seasoning decreased mutagenicity of pan-roasted beef except the very well done sample with unchanged heterocyclic amine contents, but increased mutagenicity of charcoaled beef with decreased levels of AalphaC and PhIP, probably due to the change of heterocyclic amine precursors or alternatively to the occurrence of other mutagens.  (+info)

Release characteristics of flavor from spray-dried powder in boiling water and during rice cooking. (6/85)

The release characteristics of flavor in boiling water and the flavor retention in the rice after cooking were investigated by using spray dried powder in encapsulated in or emulsified with d-limonene or ethyl n-hexanoate in cyclodextrin and maltodextrin, or in gum arabic and maltodextrin. The behavior of flavor release into the boiling water was well simulated by Avrami's equation. The retention of d-limonene and ethyl n-hexanoate in cooked rice was correlated in each case with the flavor amount of spray-dried powder added.  (+info)

Determination of antioxidant activity of herbs by ESR. (7/85)

Water extracts of 32 herbs that are constituents of curry and curry powder were screened for superoxide anion radical (O2.-) scavenging activity. Among the screened samples, only clove, allspice, and basil were shown to decrease DMPO-O2.- adduct yields by more than 50% at 0.25 mg/mL as measured by an ESR spin trapping technique based on the HPX-XOD reaction. To study the mechanism of the O2.- scavenging activity, Km values were obtained from a Lineweaver-Burk plot for XOD in the presence of different concentrations of HPX, and the IC50 values at different DMPO concentrations were compared. Clove and basil directly eliminated O2.- like superoxide dismutase (SOD), whereas allspice reduced the amount of O2.- by inhibition of formation of O2.-.  (+info)

Polyphenols from some foodstuffs as inhibitors of ovalbumin permeation through caco-2 cell monolayers. (8/85)

Some spices showed high inhibitory activity against ovalbumin permeation through Caco-2 cell monolayers. Pimentol from allspice, rosmarinic acid and luteolin-7-O-beta-glucuronide from thyme, quercetin-3-O-beta-glucuronide from coriander and rutin from tarragon were identified as the active principles. A structure-activity relationship study among the active isolates and their related compounds indicated that the presence of a catechol structure played an important role in the inhibitory activity of each compound.  (+info)

Whole Spices. Today, much of the imported spices are shipped to spice facilities in the same fashion that has been done from the beginning of the spice trade. Spices are picked by hand, dehydrated, placed in burlap bags and shipped to their destinations in their whole natural dried state. Most spice dehydration is done in the field, known in the spice trade as sun drying. Other spices are air dried in hot air drying tunnels. Drying reduces moisture content making it less costly to ship.. Much of the rigorous processing of the modern day spice house centers around the cleaning and decontamination of any undesirable adulterants. First and foremost spices have to be cleaned. The spices pass through metal detectors and destoners to remove foreign material or debris. They are then sifted through many sifting screens so that any small contaminants or insects will be ferreted out. This process is only the initial stage of modern day spice house cleaning.. Spices often have to be micro biologically ...

With todays continued focus on healthy eating and the dangers of high blood pressure, seasoning and cooking with salt has decreased. Alternative seasonings such as herbs and spices are excellent additions to any dish without the dreaded sodium. Herbs and spices are easy to use and can add a variety of delicious flavor combinations to any family favorite.. The difference between an herb and a spice is the part of the plant used. Herbs come from the leaves and soft stems of the plant. Spices are taken from the roots, seeds, bark, fruit, or flowers of the plant. Spices tend to have a stronger flavor than herbs, and are usually used in smaller quantities.. Besides being a healthy substitute for salt, herbs and spices can also replace added fat and sugar without contributing extra calories. Instead of adding extra sugar to oatmeal, for example, try using cinnamon or allspice.. Add cumin or ground black pepper to more savory dishes instead of reaching for the salt shaker or butter. Try seasoning ...
Benefits of Spicy Food. Spicy meals are enjoyed throughout the world since spices add a considerable amount of taste to food. Adding some spices to your meals can offer your numerous health benefits. This is an added advantage to people who really enjoy eating meals like chilies, hot sauces and curry. Further below are benefits of eating spicy food.. 1. Encourage weight loss. Hot peppers comprise of capsaicin, which speeds up the metabolism and assists the body to burn calories at a faster rate. Capsaicin works by increasing the temperature in the body, contributing to a significant increase in heart rate. In addition, studies clearly show that individuals who consume spicy foods only consume small portions of food, which lowers their overall intake of calories.. 2. Cardiovascular benefits. Spicy food can also help to enhance heart health through improving the capability of the body of dissolving blood clots. Scientists found that LDL cholesterol resisted oxidation, which causes arterial ...
We live in a time where we have access to almost all cuisines from across the globe and wine is no longer being overlooked as a compliment for spicy or ethnic foods. In the past spicy food wine pairings were limited to white wines but there are wonderful options among rosés and reds. For spice loving foodies its time to start sipping outside the box!. Spicy foods are as varied as the wines they can be paired with. Low alcohol wines are best for the spiciest dishes, since spice can accentuate alcohol and make high alcohol wines taste hot and abrasive. Spice can also enhance the astringency of tannins in wine, so heavy red wines are not a good choice with fiery dishes. The spice of ginger, with citrus and lemongrass, is balanced well by wines with crisp acidity and floral aromas, like Sauvignon Blanc and other aromatic whites. Savory spice like garlic, onions, oregano, sage and rosemary are right at home with deep spicy reds like Zinfandel and Petite Sirah. Brown, earthy spice like cumin, ...

Here are top Indian Spices, which can turn an ordinary meal to an extraordinary one by adding potential health benefits to it.. ...
Whole spices dont spoil, but they do begin to lose their flavor after four years. Ground spices fade in less than half that time.. The same wisdom applies to storing spices as to most things: Store your spices in a cool dark place and in a sealed container. Oxidation is the greatest enemy of spices. I havent been able to find any authoritative research on the relative advantages of keeping spices in the freezer. One school of thought says that any advantages will be offset by the exposure to moisture when the container is taken out of the freezer and opened. Others, of course, claim this is an excellent practice.. Glass containers protect the contents but make sure they also have strong air tight lids. To guard against cross contamination of odors and flavors, avoid putting bags of different spices in the same sealed container. Some people even take the trouble to vacuum seal spices in mason jars, which makes good sense when maintaining a large reservoir, then refilling smaller containers for ...
Spice companies do not just use whole or ground spices. Spice extractions, such as essential oils and oleoresins, are fundamental to this burgeoning industry.. The extraction of essential oils and oleoresins provides food technologists with many advantages, as food manufacturers can select the specific flavor profiles with much greater precision than if they were to simply use blends of whole spices. In addition, hygienic concerns as well as transportation costs are greatly reduced if the oils and oleoresins are extracted close to the areas where the spices are grown.. Typically, oleoresins use an organic solvent such as hexane to extract the resin from the spice. The solvent is then drawn off leaving the spice oleoresin behind. In the event that alcohol is used to extract the oleoresin, is the alcohol kosher and Kosher for Passover, and are the oleoresins stabilized with any non-kosher ingredients?. Essential spice oils are usually cold pressed or extracted with steam generally without the use ...

Paprika spices (Capsicium annuum) and black pepper spices (Piper nigrum) are very popular seasonings for culinary and industrial utilization due to the change of sensory quality (taste, aroma, color) of foods and meals with their addition; their health promoting properties; and also, relevant antioxidant activity. Polyphenols are often responsible for the antioxidant capacity of plant products therefore in our study the content of polyphenols (TP) and antioxidant activity (TAA) were assessed in two common culinary spices - paprika spices (12, ground powder spices) and pepper spices (20, unground and ground, black, green, white and colored spices) of Czech, Austrian, and Slovak producers. These parameters were determined using spectrometric method, for total polyphenols method with Folin-Ciocaulteu reagent; the antioxidant activity (TAA) of aqueous and ethanolic extracts of spices was measured by DPPH method with IC50 evaluation. For paprika the total polyphenol content ranged from 14.67 to 28.78 ...
This is not an exhaustive list - there are many other herbs and spices that are rich in antioxidants. I plan to expand this guide in the future when time permits.. Important Note: Adding herbs and spices can increase the health-protective effects of a nutritious diet, as well as replacing unhealthy ingredients such as artificial or high-calorie flavourings and toppings. However, although the small amounts of herbs and spices called for in most recipes are safe, large quantities of some spices and herbs can be toxic. Also, some people have allergies or sensitivities to certain herbs and spices (though this is quite rare), and some herbs and spices may interact with certain medications or be contraindicated with some medical conditions (this is uncommon, but not unheard of). Also, treating medical conditions solely with herbs and spices is not a good idea. Health concerns should be referred to a qualified doctor, and herbs and spices, if used as medicine, should be considered a complementary ...
Looking for a way to spice things up in the kitchen? Then look no further than the spice rack. Escape your comfort zone and try some of the more "exotic" spices. The old adage is true - variety is the spice of life, and adding spice to your food will not only add interesting flavors but also provides hidden health benefits.. In my opinion, the number one reason to use spices in your food - beyond adding plenty of flavor with no fat or sugar - is that most spices contain compounds that work as powerful anti-inflammatory agents (inflammation is the cause of many diseases from skin conditions to heart problems).. Most spices come from the seeds, buds, or bark of plants and trees and they are a naturally rich source of nutrients, antioxidants as well as other compounds that have unique healing properties. As trusted home remedies, they can help to alleviate the small aches and pains, such as bloating and heartburn, but are now being studying by the medical community in the fight against ...

Ah, yes-the million-dollar question. Can it be that the crocus of saffron, the seeds of a coriander plant, a vanilla bean and the drupes, or stone fruit, of a pepper plant all sit under the same umbrella term?Well, yes. Though the reason for that is a little fuzzy.. It is instructive that in his Book of Spice, John OConnell falls short of providing a single, clear definition of what spices are. He favours one by historian Jack Turner, in his Spice: The History of a Temptation. Namely: "A spice is not a herb, understood to mean the aromatic, herbaceous, green parts of the plant. Herbs are leafy, whereas spices are obtained from the other parts of the plant: bark, root, flower bud, gums and resins, seed, fruit or stigma.". This highlights, helpfully, the difference between the very herbal fresh coriander and the very obviously spice-like seeds which derive from the same plant and are used across a variety of cuisines. But leaving the definition as not a herb seems unsatisfactory.. OConnell ...

A plant-based diet protects against chronic oxidative stress-related diseases. Dietary plants contain variable chemical families and amounts of antioxidants. It has been hypothesized that plant antioxidants may contribute to the beneficial health effects of dietary plants. Our objective was to develop a comprehensive food database consisting of the total antioxidant content of typical foods as well as other dietary items such as traditional medicine plants, herbs and spices and dietary supplements. This database is intended for use in a wide range of nutritional research, from in vitro and cell and animal studies, to clinical trials and nutritional epidemiological studies. We procured samples from countries worldwide and assayed the samples for their total antioxidant content using a modified version of the FRAP assay. Results and sample information (such as country of origin, product and/or brand name) were registered for each individual food sample and constitute the Antioxidant Food Table. The

Its alarming because this turmeric spice is a regularly cooking ingredient for most homes in the United States.. Now lead is believed to be quite easily found in turmeric products including the powder and this is because the spice is predominantly grown in South Asia and in India to be precise. It has been discovered that the soil in which this spice is grown has high levels of lead and this heavy metal naturally forms a major part of the makeup of the spice..

Salmonella is a leading cause of foodborne diseases and the role of ready-to-eat products including plant-derived food is increasingly recognized. The present survey reviewed recent literature on Salmonella-related outbreaks caused by spices and herbs and on the occurrence of Salmonella in these food matrices. Spices and herbs contaminated with Salmonella were responsible for a variety of foodborne outbreaks in Europe and North America. Identified serovars did often not belong to those predominating in human illness. Moreover, in different survey studies, Salmonella belonging to a broad diversity of serovars were found in a variety of spices and herbs. The proportion of Salmonella-positive samples ranged from 0% to 8.4%, albeit detection rates were rather low in most studies. Higher prevalence rates were often obtained with regard to a specific spice or herb type. Due to high desiccation tolerance, Salmonella can survive for an extended period of time in spices and dried herbs. Thus, by the use ...

By Julie Upton. A pinch here and a dash there may be one of the best ways to improve your health.. Herbs and spices have been grown and cultivated for thousands of years-as far back as 5,000 BC-and have been used for their medicinal benefits since they were first cultivated.. Today, research shows that these culinary treasures do, in fact, provide protection against certain diseases with their antioxidant punch and can improve our diet by enhancing flavor without any extra calories, fat, sugar, or sodium. The words herb and spice are often used interchangeably, but the two are botanically different. Herbs are generally considered to be the leafy part of the plant, while spices are any other part of the plant, like the buds (cloves), bark (cinnamon), roots (ginger), berries (peppercorns), and aromatic seeds (cumin ...

My favorite Thai curry is Tofu Panang curry, which is a type of red curry, but its not as spicy. It also has some of the same spices that are featured in Indian curries, which I happen to like as well. The problem with making Thai curries at home is that so many ingredients are difficult to find in your regular supermarket. While many supermarkets to carry pre-made curry pastes, I dont like to eat all those preservatives. Tonight I challenged myself to make a Panang-inspired curry using ingredients that I can get from the local store (and, considering how caloric Thai curries tend to be, something that would be reduced in calories!). I substituted lime juice for the kaffir lime leaves and lemongrass, ginger for the galangal, and since this is a veg*n version, I used cashews for the shrimp paste that is so commonly featured in non-veg*n Panang curry. The cashews add body to the sauce that may be lost from not using the shrimp paste. I also used soy sauce instead of vegetarian fish sauce. This ...

THOUGH much is suspected, relatively little is known about the health effects of peppery foods. In general, hot, spicy foods are stimulants. They stimulate the circulation and raise body temperature. If you are living in a hot climate, the increase in body temperature can make you feel cooler by diminishing the difference between you and the surrounding air and by inducing sweating, which cools the body when the perspiration evaporates. Peppery foods are also believed to stimulate the appetite by setting off the flow of saliva and gastric juices, a nutritionally important effect for people in tropical areas where the oppressive heat acts as an appetite suppressant. And, anecdotally at least, they act as an overall stimulant, producing a titillating, awakening effect and increasing the acuity of the senses.

cassia (Cassia or Chinese cinnamon). Uses: Sprinkle on yogurt, apple slices, or oatmeal for an instant flavor boost. Add a pinch to your coffee or tea. Or try cinnamon as a rub for Middle Eastern-inspired lamb, chicken, or stew meats.. Nutmeg This warm, delicate spice, also known as "pala" in Indonesia, is most often commercially derived from an evergreen tree species in the Spice Islands of Indonesia.. Health Benefits: Nutmeg has traditionally been used as an antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory agent. Some believe that topically applying nutmeg will help soothe sore muscles. A word of caution though, a little goes a long way. In extremely large amounts, nutmeg can cause psychoactivity leading to heart palpitations and delirium, but a teaspoon here or there is just right for adding flavor to many dishes.. Types: While not technically two types of nutmeg, two types of spices are derived from the same tree. Nutmeg, which is the seed of the tree, and mace, which is the lace-like, red coating, or ...
