Carotenoid intakes, assessed by dietary questionnaire, are associated with plasma carotenoid concentrations in an elderly population. (1/2539)

High intakes of fruits and vegetables and of carotenoids are associated with a lower risk for a variety of chronic diseases. It is therefore important to test the validity of dietary questionnaires that assess these intakes. We compared intakes of five carotenoids, as calculated from responses to the Willett 126-item food-frequency questionnaire, with corresponding biochemical measures. Subjects included 346 women and 201 men, aged 67-93 y, in the Framingham Heart Study. Unadjusted correlations were higher among women than men as follows: alpha-carotene 0.33 and 0.18, beta-carotene, 0.36 and 0.25; beta-cryptoxanthin, 0.44 and 0.32; lycopene, 0.35 and 0.21; and lutein + zeaxanthin, 0.27 and 0.10, respectively. Adjustment for age, energy intake, body mass index (BMI, kg/m2), plasma cholesterol concentrations and smoking reduced the gender differences, respectively, to the following: alpha-carotene 0.30 and 0.28; beta-carotene, 0.34 and 0.31; beta-cryptoxanthin, 0.45 and 0.36; lycopene, 0.36 and 0.31; and lutein + zeaxanthin, 0.24 and 0.14. Plots of adjusted mean plasma carotenoid concentration by quintile of respective carotenoid intake show apparent greater responsiveness among women, compared with men, to dietary intake of alpha- and beta-carotene and beta-cryptoxanthin, but similar blood-diet relationships for lycopene and lutein + zeaxanthin. Reported daily intake of fruits and vegetables correlated most strongly with plasma beta-cryptoxanthin and beta-carotene among women and with plasma alpha- and beta-carotene among men. With the exception of lutein + zeaxanthin, this dietary questionnaire does provide reasonable rankings of carotenoid status among elderly subjects, with the strongest correlations for beta-cryptoxanthin. Appropriate adjustment of confounders is necessary to clarify these associations among men.  (+info)

Glutathione-S-transferase (GSTM1) genetic polymorphisms do not affect human breast cancer risk, regardless of dietary antioxidants. (2/2539)

Glutathione-S-transferases catalyze the detoxication of carcinogen metabolites and reactive oxygen species (ROS) produced through a number of mechanisms. Glutathione-S-transferase (GST) M1 is polymorphic, and the null allele results in a lack of enzyme activity. Because there are indications that ROS may be involved in breast carcinogenesis, we sought to determine whether the GSTM1 null allele was associated with increased breast cancer, particularly among women with lower consumption of dietary sources of alpha-tocopherol, carotenoids and ascorbic acid. In a study of diet and cancer in western New York, women with primary, incident, histologically confirmed breast cancer (n = 740) and community controls (n = 810) were interviewed and an extensive food-frequency questionnaire administered. A subset of these women provided a blood specimen. DNA was extracted and genotyping performed for GSTM1. Data were available for 279 cases and 340 controls. The null allele did not increase breast cancer risk, regardless of menopausal status. There were also no differences in associations between the polymorphism and risk among lower and higher consumers of dietary sources of antioxidants or smokers and nonsmokers. These results indicate that GSTM1 genetic polymorphisms are not associated with breast cancer risk, even in an environment low in antioxidant defenses.  (+info)

Dietary variety within food groups: association with energy intake and body fatness in men and women. (3/2539)

BACKGROUND: Short-term experimental studies suggest that dietary variety may influence body fatness but no long-term human studies have been reported. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine whether dietary variety within food groups influences energy intake and body fatness. DESIGN: Seventy-one healthy men and women (aged 20-80 y), who provided accurate reports of dietary intake and completed a body-composition assessment, were studied. RESULTS: Dietary variety was positively associated with energy intake within each of 10 food groups (r = 0.27-0.56, P < 0.05). In multiple regression analysis with age and sex controlled for, dietary variety of sweets, snacks, condiments, entrees, and carbohydrates (as a group) was positively associated with body fatness (partial r = 0.38, P = 0.001) whereas variety from vegetables was negatively associated (partial r = -0.31, P = 0.01) (R2 = 0.46, P < 0.0001). In separate models, both a variety ratio (variety of vegetables/variety of sweets, snacks, condiments, entrees, and carbohydrates) and percentage dietary fat were significant predictors of body fatness (controlled for age and sex, partial r = -0.39 and 0.31, respectively, P < 0.01). However, dietary fat was no longer significantly associated with body fatness when the variety ratio and dietary fat were included in the same model. CONCLUSIONS: Our data, coupled with those of previous short-term studies, suggest that a high variety of sweets, snacks, condiments, entrees, and carbohydrates coupled with a low variety of vegetables promotes long-term increases in energy intake and body fatness. These findings may help explain the rising prevalence of obesity.  (+info)

Chemoprevention of cancer by isothiocyanates, modifiers of carcinogen metabolism. (4/2539)

Substantial quantities of isothiocyanates are released upon consumption of normal amounts of a number of cruciferous vegetables. Some of these naturally occurring isothiocyanates such as phenethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC), benzyl isothiocyanate (BITC) and sulforaphane are effective inhibitors of cancer induction in rodents treated with carcinogens. A large amount of data demonstrate that isothiocyanates act as cancer chemopreventive agents by favorably modifying carcinogen metabolism via inhibition of Phase 1 enzymes and/or induction of Phase 2 enzymes. These effects are quite specific, depending on the structure of the isothiocyanate and carcinogen. One of the most thoroughly studied examples of isothiocyanate inhibition of rodent carcinogenesis is inhibition of 4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone (NNK)-induced lung tumorigenesis by PEITC. This occurs because PEITC blocks the metabolic activation of NNK, resulting in increased urinary excretion of detoxified metabolites. Similar effects on NNK metabolism have been observed in smokers who consumed watercress, a source of PEITC. On the basis of these observations and knowledge of the carcinogenic constituents of cigarette smoke, a strategy for chemoprevention of lung cancer can be developed.  (+info)

Pancreatic cancer risk and nutrition-related methyl-group availability indicators in male smokers. (5/2539)

BACKGROUND: Few risk factors for pancreatic cancer have been identified, with age and cigarette smoking being the most consistent. The protective effect associated with consumption of fruits and vegetables-the major dietary sources of folate-is suggestive of a role for factors influencing cellular methylation reactions; however, to our knowledge, no study has investigated this relationship. Whether biochemical indicators of methyl-group availability are associated with exocrine pancreatic cancer risk was the focus of this investigation. METHODS: We conducted a nested case-control study within the Alpha-Tocopherol, Beta-Carotene Cancer Prevention Study cohort of 29133 male Finnish smokers aged 50-69 years. One hundred twenty-six subjects with incident exocrine pancreatic cancer were matched by date of baseline blood draw (+/-30 days), study center, age (+/-5 years), trial intervention group, and completion of dietary history to 247 control subjects, who were alive and free from cancer at the time the case subjects were diagnosed. Odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were determined by use of conditional logistic regression. Reported P values are two-tailed. RESULTS: Serum folate and pyridoxal-5'-phosphate (PLP) concentrations showed statistically significant inverse dose-response relationships with pancreatic cancer risk, with the highest serum tertiles having approximately half the risk of the lowest (folate: OR = 0.45; 95% CI = 0.24-0.82; P for trend = .009, and PLP: OR = 0.48; 95% CI = 0.26-0.88; P for trend = .02). An increased pancreatic cancer risk was also observed with greater exposure to cigarettes (e.g., pack-years [number of packs smoked per day x number of years of smoking], highest versus lowest quartile: OR = 2.13; 95% CI = 1.13-3.99; P for trend = .04). CONCLUSIONS: These results support the hypothesis that maintaining adequate folate and pyridoxine status may reduce the risk of pancreatic cancer and confirm the risk previously associated with cigarette smoking.  (+info)

Comparison of serum carotenoid responses between women consuming vegetable juice and women consuming raw or cooked vegetables. (6/2539)

The objective of this study was to examine serum concentrations of alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, lutein, lycopene, and beta-cryptoxanthin due to consumption of vegetable juice versus raw or cooked vegetables. Subjects included female breast cancer patients who had undergone surgical resection and who were enrolled in a feasibility study for a trial examining the influence of diet on breast cancer recurrence. A high-vegetable, low-fat diet was the focus of the intervention, and some of the subjects were specifically encouraged to consume vegetable juice. At 12 months, blood samples were collected and analyzed for carotenoid concentrations via high-performance liquid chromatography methodology. Matched analysis and paired t test were conducted on two groups: those who consumed vegetable juice (the juice group) and those who consumed raw or cooked vegetables (no juice group). Serum concentrations of alpha-carotene and lutein were significantly higher in the vegetable juice group than in the raw or cooked vegetable group (P < 0.05 and P = 0.05, respectively). Paired t test analysis did not demonstrate a significant difference in serum values of beta-carotene, lycopene, and beta-cryptoxanthin between subjects consuming juice and those not consuming any juice. These results suggest that alpha-carotene and lutein appear to be more bioavailable in the juice form than in raw or cooked vegetables. Therefore, the food form consumed may contribute to the variability in serum carotenoid response to vegetable and fruit interventions in clinical studies.  (+info)

Food groups and colorectal cancer risk. (7/2539)

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)

Potassium, magnesium, and fruit and vegetable intakes are associated with greater bone mineral density in elderly men and women. (8/2539)

BACKGROUND: Osteoporosis and related fractures will be growing public health problems as the population ages. It is therefore of great importance to identify modifiable risk factors. OBJECTIVE: We investigated associations between dietary components contributing to an alkaline environment (dietary potassium, magnesium, and fruit and vegetables) and bone mineral density (BMD) in elderly subjects. DESIGN: Dietary intake measures were associated with both cross-sectional (baseline) and 4-y longitudinal change in BMD among surviving members of the original cohort of the Framingham Heart Study. Dietary and supplement intakes were assessed by food-frequency questionnaire, and BMD was measured at 3 hip sites and 1 forearm site. RESULTS: Greater potassium intake was significantly associated with greater BMD at all 4 sites for men and at 3 sites for women (P < 0.05). Magnesium intake was associated with greater BMD at one hip site for both men and women and in the forearm for men. Fruit and vegetable intake was associated with BMD at 3 sites for men and 2 for women. Greater intakes of potassium and magnesium were also each associated with less decline in BMD at 2 hip sites, and greater fruit and vegetable intake was associated with less decline at 1 hip site, in men. There were no significant associations between baseline diet and subsequent bone loss in women. CONCLUSION: These results support the hypothesis that alkaline-producing dietary components, specifically, potassium, magnesium, and fruit and vegetables, contribute to maintenance of BMD.  (+info)

In the past, bean pods often contained a string, a hard fibrous strand running the length of the pod. This was removed before cooking, or made edible by cutting the pod into short segments. Modern, commercially grown green bean varieties lack strings.. Green beans are eaten around the world, and are marketed canned, frozen, and fresh. Green beans are often steamed, boiled, stir-fried, or baked in casseroles. A dish with green beans popular throughout the United States, particularly at Thanksgiving, is green bean casserole, which consists of green beans, cream of mushroom soup, and French fried onions.[7]. Some US restaurants serve green beans that are battered and fried, and some Japanese restaurants serve green bean tempura. Green beans are also sold dried, and fried with vegetables such as carrots, corn, and peas, as vegetable chips.. The flavonol miquelianin (Quercetin 3-O-glucuronide) can be found in green beans.[8]. ...
In this study, serum concentrations of five carotenoids were examined in a study population consuming vegetable juice versus raw or cooked vegetables. The study population consisted of women at risk for breast cancer recurrence who were participating in a feasibility study for a trial examining the influence of diet on breast cancer recurrence. The daily dietary prescription in the intervention group included consumption of two 8-ounce portions of vegetable juice and a diet high in vegetables, fruits, and fiber and low in fat. Because any combination of vegetables could be selected when preparing the vegetable juice, direct comparison of serum carotenoid concentrations between juice and no juice subjects could only be made by matching the two groups on dietary intake of the respective carotenoids. The matched analysis produced similar dietary consumption of carotenoids between the juice and no juice group. We found, for this study population, that women who were consuming vegetable juice had ...

Leaf vegetables are leaves from various plants that are edible with some leaves having tender shoots, such as beet greens, attached. Leaf vegetables are very high in nutrition and may be used in various culinary dishes.. While there are over a thousand species of leaf vegetables, they generally come from plants that are short-lived such as lettuce and spinach. Leaf vegetables are high in vitamin K which is caused from the photosynthesis that takes place during the growing phase. Anyone on anticoagulant therapy such as Coumadin will need to monitor their intake of leaf vegetables, as they will interfere with the anticoagulant levels in the blood stream.. Other benefits of eating leaf vegetables is that they are low in fat and calories, high in protein and fiber, high iron and calcium content as well as vitamin C, folate, magnesium, and carotenoids.. During periods of famine, leaves from fodder crops such as alfalfa, clover, and most grasses, can also be eaten. The leaves can be dried or ground ...
Frozen vegetables go through a process of scalding and freezing few hours after harvest, compared with fresh vegetables that sold in market days after harvest.. The freezing condition of the vegetables has a significant implications for the conservation and vitamins. The lower the freezing temperature is, so the preservation of vitamins during the freeze gets better. In general, vegetables are kept frozen at about minus 86 °F (or 30 °C).. The fiber content in vegetables is not damaged at all by the freezing process, and even found a small increase in their contents.. The mineral content of vegetables is not affected as-well by the freezing process. Moreover, frozen vegetables require a shorter cooking time than fresh vegetables, and thus have significant impact of the antioxidant vitamins passed through the cooking compared to when you cook fresh vegetables.. Another advantage of frozen vegetables is that they are available all year round. However, frozen vegetables lose some of their ...

AU - Freitas, Maria do Carmo. AU - Pacheco, Adriano M.G.. PY - 2009/1/1. Y1 - 2009/1/1. N2 - The selenium content in fruit and vegetable samples from two regions in Portugal were analysed using hydride generation atomic fluorescence spectrometry (HG-AFS) and radiochemical nuclear activation analysis (RNAA) - two analytical methods with very low limits of detection. The lower detection limits of HG-AFS, 3 mu g kg(-1) and 8 mu g kg(-1) (according to conditions used for digestion), and for RNAA, 10 mu g kg(-1), meant that it was possible to determine selenium in samples previously analysed using the replicate sample instrumental nuclear activation analysis (RSINAA) with a higher detection limit associated. The results obtained with the HG-AFS method were similar to those obtained using either RNAA or RSINAA, although in the ...

The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend that individuals consume 4.5 to 5 cups fruits and vegetables daily. However, at current intake levels, fruit consumption will have to improve by more than 100% and vegetable intake by 50% to meet this recommendation. Importantly, intake of brightly colored fruits and vegetables is even lower when potatoes are not considered. It is possible that improved fruit and vegetable intake will have beneficial health effects. For example, higher intakes of fruits and vegetables, and particularly cruciferous vegetables (e.g., broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, etc.), are associated with lower rates of many degenerative diseases, including some cancers, yet this group of vegetables may continue to be under-consumed due to their strong flavors. A supplement made from these vegetables (Cruciferous CompleteTM made by Standard Process Inc. Palmyra, WI) contains a group of phytochemicals called glucosinolates that can shift estrogen metabolism in a ...

A vegetable oil-based polyol is made by adding a peroxyacid to vegetable oil wherein said peroxyacid reacts with said vegetable oil to form epoxidized vegetable oil and adding said epoxidized vegetable oil to a mixture of an alcohol, water, and a catalytic amount of fluoboric acid so as to form a vegetable oil-based polyol. A further embodiment of the present invention involves making a vegetable oil-based polyol using an epoxidized vegetable oil as the starting material. The epoxidized vegetable oil undergoes hydroxylation by the same process as outlined above. According to another aspect of the present invention, the vegetable oil-based polyol formed by the novel methods of this invention may be reacted with an isocyanate to form a polyurethane. Alternatively, a filler such as silica may be combined with the vegetable oil-based polyol before it is reacted with the isocyanate. These polyurethanes made from vegetable oil-based polyols may be used to form electroinsulating casting resins.

Hi - thanks for your email. I have heard of the Green Bean Diet to help dogs loose weight. This is basically how it works. You cut back on your dogs food and substitute a portion of their food with green beans. It should be started and stopped gradually. When used, it is recommended that you decrease the food quantity by 10% and replace with an equal amount of green beans. After 2 to 3 days, decrease the food quantity of dog food by another 10%, again replacing the dog food for the same quantity of green beans. You do this until you are feeding about 50% of their regular good quantity and 50% green beans. The green beans are to help the dog feel full while supplying few calories. Once the dog reaches its ideal weight, you can begin cutting out the green beans and returning them to a maintenance amount of food. Ive heard other vets do it by gradually decreasing the food intake by 50% and substituting it with 1 can of green beans per day. This will really vary with the size of the dog. It seems ...

We found that ∼1 in 3 6-year-old children consumed fruit less than once daily and ∼1 in 5 consumed vegetables less than once daily. After adjustment for several factors, children in our study who consumed fruits and vegetables less than once daily during late infancy had a 2.5 times higher odds of eating fruit, and 2.4 times higher odds of eating vegetables less than once daily at age 6 years. These findings highlight the importance of infant feeding guidance that encourages the intake of fruits and vegetables.. Our finding from a national cohort of infants that the infrequent intake of fruits and vegetables during infancy is associated with intake in childhood is consistent with 2 previous, yet smaller, studies.17,18 There are several possible explanations for these findings. Infants consuming fruits and vegetables more frequently during late infancy may have been offered fruits and vegetables more frequently, establishing a taste preference and familiarity for fruits and vegetables that ...

Download transcript. The same oil we cook with can also be used as an alternative source of fuel to run a car engine.. Rudolf Diesel, Mechanical engineer. As early as 1900, Rudolf Diesel - designer of the diesel engine - proved his car engine could run on peanut oil at the Paris World Fair. This is because all vegetable oils are made up of long chains of carbon atoms. A very similar molecular structure to diesel and gasoline.. Pure vegetable oil used as a fuel is known as SVO - Straight Vegetable Oil.. Straight vegetable oil = SVO. Normally, old vegetable oil is converted chemically into biodiesel. This is a renewable fuel that can be mixed with diesel, to give off safer emissions than diesel alone.. It is also possible to reuse pure vegetable oil for cooking, as long as you filter the oil first.. The main problem with both pure and mixed vegetable oils as fuels is that vegetable oil is very thick and viscous, and can damage the engine.. One solution is to use separate diesel and vegetable oil ...

While some fruits and vegetables can easily lose flavor when frozen, others become sweeter when exposed to very low temperatures. Frozen fruits and vegetables makes you fit, boosts your antioxidant intake and saves you money. During the winter season in most countries, the produce and supply of fresh fruits and vegetables becomes limited hence most people will tend to consume frozen and canned fruits and veggies. According to researchers, canned food loses a lot of nutrients in the preservation process. On the contrary frozen vegetables are thought to be healthier than fresh produce sold in groceries and supermarkets. Once a vegetable or fruit has been plucked or picked from the farm, it starts to slowly lose nutrients and how long it takes for you to eat it after it has been plucked or picked, determines the nutritional value you are going to get from it. Freezing of fruits or vegetables helps retain their freshness at the same time locking the essential nutrients found in them. The following ...
Leaf vegetables, also called leafy greens, salad greens, pot herbs, vegetable greens, or simply greens, are plant leaves eaten as a vegetable, sometimes accompanied by tender petioles and shoots. Although they come from a very wide variety of plants, most share a great deal with other leaf vegetables in nutrition and cooking methods. Nearly one thousand species of plants with edible leaves are known. Leaf vegetables most often come from short-lived herbaceous plants, such as lettuce and spinach. Woody plants of various species also provide edible leaves. The leaves of many fodder crops are also edible for humans, but usually only eaten under famine conditions. Examples include; alfalfa, clover, most grasses, including wheat and barley. These plants are often much more prolific than traditional leaf vegetables, but exploitation of their rich nutrition is difficult, due to their high fiber content. This can be overcome by further processing such as drying and grinding into powder or pulping and ...

Green VegetablesGreen vegetables, especially green leafy vegetables exhibit unusual wide anti-cancer powers. A recent Italian study showed a powerful protection from the frequent consumption of green vegetables against the risk of most cancers. Green vegetables such as spinach, fenugreek, dark green lettuce and broccoli, are full of many different antioxidants, including beta carotene and folic acid, as well as lutein - a little-known antioxidant. Some scientists believe that lutein may even be as powerful as beta carotene in blocking cancer. Green leafy vegetables are rich in lutein. Darkest green vegetables should be chosen to derive maximum carotenoids and other anticancer agents. According to Frederick Khachik, Ph.D., a research scientist at the Department of Agriculture, The darker green they are the most cancer preventing carotenoids they have. He also says lutein and other carotenoids are not lost during cooking or freezing, although heat exercises harmful effects on more fragile ...
The mechanism by which certain vegetables can slow the growth of cancer cells was detailed in a recent article in the scientific journal Carcinogenesis. The articles author, Leslie Wilson, is a professor of biochemistry and pharmacology at UCSB. His research discovered how the compounds from broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables - that is, edible plants in the family Brassicaceae, which also includes many leafy greens - work on a cellular level to inhibit the growth of breast cancer.. There are many active cancer-fighting agents in these vegetables, Wilson said. The cancer-fighting compounds, known as isothiocyanates, come from a substance known as glucoraphanin, which is particularly abundant in broccoli and cauliflower. It is especially prevalent in the young sprouts of these two vegetables, but is also present in many cruciferous vegetables including cabbage, kale, and collard greens. When the vegetables are chewed, the isothiocyanates are produced.. The particular compound Wilsons ...

Vegetables have remarkable nutritional and health benefits. There are good reasons to include vegetables in human diet since they are enriched in bioactive compounds and by this reason they may help reduce the risk of some diseases. In this paper it was analyzed the nutrition quality and effect on disease prevention of vegetables. Each vegetable family and each vegetable contain a unique combination of bioactive compounds. The health benefit of vegetables should not be linked to one type of vegetable. It is presented some experimental research evidences that vegetables exert anti-oxidative, anti-carcinogenic, anti-diabetic and cardiovascular disease lowering effects. The mechanism by which vegetable bioactive compounds decrease the risk of some of these diseases is complex and sometimes unknown.
Fruits and vegetables are full of vitamins and minerals. Eating more fruits and vegetables may even help protect against many illnesses. Fresh produce is not always available, and frozen varieties are convenient and are available 12 months out of their years and maybe cheaper to families that are starting out. Fresh may not be as fresh as you think and frozen is usually frozen when it is fresher than the fresh varieties you buy on the shelves because they are processed before transport. Fruits and vegetables will be frozen after harvesting at their peak ripeness when the vegetables and fruits are at their peak of vitamins and minerals. Once they are harvested, the vegetables are often washed, blanched, cut, frozen, and packaged quickly. Most modern frozen food is flash frozen. Simply, it is frozen very quickly. Simply put, the food was frozen more slowly years ago and it might have resulted in a loss of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Anti-oxidants, vitamins, and minerals are the nutrients ...
It’s no great secret that vegetables are vital for good health, but the problem is, fresh produce tends to have a very short shelf life. There’s nothing worse than buying a bag of seasonal runner beans or a bunch of beautiful chantenay carrots only to forget about them, then find them languishing at the bottom of the fridge weeks past their use-by date. To keep your favourite ingredients at their best for longer and cut out potential food waste, why not consider freezing vegetables? You can freeze almost any type of vegetable, but smaller veg like sweetcorn, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and runner beans tend to freeze best as they have low water content. Winter greens such as spinach and kale also freeze well for the same reason. First of all, wash and prepare your fresh vegetables (for example, you might like to cut broccoli into small florets or dice swede or root vegetables into chunks). Next, wrap in cling film, then a layer of tin foil to prevent freezer burn.
A 12-week pilot intervention was designed to promote fruit and vegetable intake among 4th to 6th grade children (n=93) attending a YMCA summer camp. Children participated in garden-based activities twice per week. Children reported high levels of enjoyment in the intervention activities. Most children (97.8%) enjoyed taste-testing fruits and vegetables. Children also liked preparing fruit and vegetable snacks (93.4%), working in their garden (95.6%), and learning about fruits and vegetables (91.3%). Impact data suggest that the intervention led to an increase in the number of fruits and vegetables ever eaten (P,0.001), vegetable preferences (P,0.001), and fruit and vegetable asking behavior at home (P,0.002). ...

We studied the factors that predict liking for vegetables and preference for a variety of vegetables among schoolchildren. Additionally, we examined if there were gender differences in the predictors that explain the hypothesized higher scores in liking vegetables and preferences among girls. The data from the PRO GREENS project included 424 Finnish children (response rate 77%) aged 11 to 12. The children completed validated measures about social and environmental factors related to their liking for vegetables and preferences both at baseline 2009 and follow-up 2010. The associations were examined with regression and mediation analyses. The strongest predictors of both girls and boys liking and preferences were higher levels of eating vegetables together with the family, previous vegetable intake and a lower level of perceived barriers. Liking was additionally predicted by a lower level of parental demand that their child should eat vegetables. Girls reported higher levels of liking and ...

Approximately 180,000 acres of vegetables are grown in Georgia annually with a farm-gate value in 2003 of over $900 million. The estimated control costs and crop damage associated with vegetable insect and other arthropod pests averages about 3-9% of the farm-gate value over all vegetables, so insect management is critical to profitable vegetable production in the State. Insect management in vegetables is very dynamic in Georgia because of the diversity of crops, the 10°F average temperature difference between the north and south, and the multiple, overlapping growing seasons. The use of integrated pest management (IPM) is recommended, but this requires considerable information about the pests. The following information on insect biology and the type of damage by vegetable insects should assist vegetable pest managers in their efforts to economically reduce insect problems using a biologically based approach. Select the crop below to link to photos of insects that can be found on the crop and ...

Fresh vegetables are considered as vital nutrients of a healthy diet as they supply the body with essential supplements. The consumption of raw vegetables is the main way for transmission of intestinal parasitic organisms. This study was aimed at detecting the parasitic contamination in fresh vegetables sold in two central open-aired markets in Khartoum state, Sudan. In this prospective cross-sectional study, a total of 260 fresh vegetable samples and 50 water samples used to sprinkle vegetable(s) were collected from two central open-aired markets (namely; Elshaabi and Central markets) during November 2011 to May 2012. The samples were microscopically examined for detection of parasitic life forms using standardized parasitological techniques for protozoans and helminthes worms. Of the 260 fresh vegetable samples, 35 (13.5 %) were microscopically positive for intestinal parasites whereas 7/50 (14 %) of water samples used to sprinkle vegetable(s) were found positives. Remarkably, high level of
Vegetables contain 90‒96% water; the remainder is composed of components such as carbohydrates, proteins and nutrients. In vegetal cells, water is present in different forms; part of this water can easily be removed and a part cannot. Depending on their size, the substances of which vegetables are composed form different kinds of solutions in combination with water. Most of the organic load and nutrients of the vegetables processed were released into water from the peeling of root vegetables, whereas the volume of the water came primarily from the rinsing and washing of vegetables. Wash-ing is an important step in fresh-cut vegetable processing; it removes soil and debris, and reduces microbial populations residing on the vegetable surface. Washing is often the only step that can remove foreign material and tissue exudates, as well as inactivate pathogens. Water plays a dual role in the fresh-cut vegetable processing: it both reduces and transmits microorganisms to vegetables. The high quality ...

As part of the study, the researchers examined the data of more than 50 thousand people who participated in the Danish Diet, Cancer and Health Study for 23 years.. Research team Catherine Bondonno noted that they found that regular consumption of nitrate-rich vegetables lowers the risk of developing diseases such as the peripheral artery, heart attack, stroke, and heart failure, a type of heart disease known for the narrowing of the blood vessels in the legs.. Bondonno stated that a daily portion of the vegetables in question would be sufficient, and that more consumption had no effect on obtaining more efficient ...
Many people today suffer from diabetes, a disease in which the blood contains high levels of sugar.. Vegetables that have high water content may help lower your blood sugar.. Certain vegetables may help people with diabetes because the high amounts of water help to flush out toxin and other harmful wastes from the body, balancing the sugars in the blood.. If you have high blood sugar levels, you can take steps to help lower it. Foods such as avocados, cabbage, cucumbers, and tomatoes are all high in water content and fiber and have been shown to lower blood sugar in the body. These fruits and vegetables are not only good for you, but they are also low in calories.. By eating these vegetables with high water content, your body does not convert them into sugar quickly, but uses them as a source of fuel, slowly giving you energy throughout the day.. Another tip when you have high blood sugar is to avoid the vegetables with high starch content such as potatoes because the body quickly converts them ...
Diets low in fruit and vegetables are reportedly responsible for 2.7 million deaths annually from cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and certain cancers. A daily fruit and vegetable intake of five 80 g portions is recommended for chronic disease prevention. However, in the UK, average adult consumption is less than three portions. It is suggested that fruit juice should only count as one portion. However, fruit juices are a beneficial source of phytochemicals. The preliminary results of two randomized, controlled, crossover, dietary intervention studies investigating the effects of chronic and acute consumption of fruit and vegetable puree and juice based drinks (FVPJ) on bioavailability, antioxidant status, vascular reactivity, and risk factors for CVD are reported. In the first study, 39 volunteers consumed 200 ml FVPJ, or fruit-flavoured control, daily for six weeks. In the second study, 24 volunteers consumed 400 mL FVPJ, or sugar-matched control, on the morning of the study day. Blood and urine ...
Antibiotic resistance in campylobacter is an emerging global public health problem after MRSA and VRE. Fluoroquinolone and macrolide resistance have been found to be more common in this world leading foodborne pathogen. A total of fifty-six isolates of Campylobacter jejuni obtained from raw vegetables which are consumed as ulam (salad) in Malaysia, were tested with 12 antibiotics used clinically and agriculturally. The resistance was determined using the disk diffusion method. Results were determined by hierarchic numerical methods to cluster strains and antibiotics according to similarity profiles. Fifty five C. jejuni isolates from different isolation sites were all clustered together into ten groups. This indicates that the commodities (raw salad vegetables/ulam) where the isolates originated might share a similar source of cross-contamination along the production route. All antibiotics tested correlated and there were four groupings reflecting their mode of actions. Generally, C. jejuni ...
One of the uses of Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) is in the detection of pesticide residues in fruit and vegetables. In a high throughput laboratory there is the potential for sample swaps or mislabelling, as once a sample has been pre-processed to be injected into the GC-MS analyser, it is no longer distinguishable by eye. Possible consequences of such mistakes can be the destruction of large amounts of actually safe produce or pesticide-contaminated produce reaching the consumer. For the purposes of food safety and traceability, it can also be extremely valuable to know the source (country of origin) of a food product. This can help uncover fraudulent attempts of trying to sell food originating from countries deemed unsafe. In this study, we use the workflow environment ADAMS to examine whether we can determine the fruit/vegetable, and the country of origin of a sample from a GC-MS chromatogram. A workflow is used to generate data sets using different data pre-processing methods, ...
According to a recent survey, the number of Americans adults who say they are eating pretty much whatever they want is at an all-time high, which unfortunately includes too few fruits and vegetables, as well as too little variety. Half of all fruit servings are taken up by just six foods: orange juice, bananas, apple juice, apples, grapes, and watermelons. Only five foods-iceberg lettuce, frozen potatoes, fresh potatoes, potato chips, and canned tomatoes-make up half of all vegetable servings. Were not only eating too few fruits and veggies.

The researchers observed a significant increase over the summer in the number of different fruits and vegetables in the households of the intervention group compared with the control group. The intervention group also reported greater increases in fruit and vegetable consumption. Although the increases in fruit and vegetable consumption in the intervention group did not reach statistical significance, they did show a trend in the right direction, said Quandt. In a larger group, we would expect that the CSA program would make a noticeable impact on quality of the families diets.. Intervention participants reported a willingness to pay at least a portion of the CSA cost in the future. In an overall evaluation of the Farm Fresh Healthy Living program, the participants reported positively on the variety of the produce provided, the better flavor of the local produce compared with grocery store produce, the chance to expose children to new foods, as well as the chance to eat foods that were too ...

Many fresh vegetables and fruits retain their top quality only for a few days if they are not properly preserved. All green vegetables and fruits of high water content are best when fresh. If allowed to stand for a long period after gathering, they become wilted through loss of moisture by transpiration. The transpiration loss of water is one of the main processes that affect the commercial and physiological deterioration of fruits and vegetables after harvest. The moisture loss adversely affects the appearance, texture, flavour and weight of the products. Most notable effect of moisture loss is the softening of the tissues caused by the loss of turgidity. Storing them in the refrigerator can prevent this water loss. But the optimum storage temperature differs for vegetables and fruits ...

A pot experiment was conducted to study the influences of four phosphorus on yield,cadmium(Cd) absorption and accumulation in leaf vegetables(spinach,pakchoi,willow leaf and round leaf amaranth) and the Cd availability in soil.Results showed that phosphate treatments could significantly promote vegetables growth,reduce the Cd concentrations in vegetable shoots and roots and increase Cd accumulation in four vegetables shoots compared with the control treatment.However,the Cd accumulation in the shoots didnt varied significantly with the phosphate treatments.A significantly negative linear relationship was found between soil pH and the available Cd.The capability of four phosphates in acidifying soil varied in following order:SSP(superphosphate)MAP(monoammonium phosphate),DAP(diammonium phosphate)DCP(dicalcium phosphate).The DCP treatment exhibited the highest yield,the lowest content of Cd in vegetable,the highest pH and the lowest soil available Cd.
