    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Domestic sciences; Product quality; Production quality; Sustainability; Organic farming; Wheat; Organic Food; Bread; Milling; Breadmaking; Sensory analysis; Consumers; Information; Values; Food acceptance; Hushållsvetenskap; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS Domestic science and nutrition; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN Hushålls- och kostvetenskap;

    Abstract : In order to study the effect of production systems aimed at sustainability on product quality and of sensory and non-sensory factors on product acceptance – the effect of farming system, year, milling and baking techniques on the sensory qualities of wheat bread as a model product was investigated using a descriptive test, and the effect of information and values on liking of bread using consumer tests.Whole wheat and white breads were baked with wheat grown in six lots in established conventional and organic farming systems in field trails, in two subsequent years for the white bread.

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Nematofaga svampar förekommer inom många grupper i svampriket och har den gemensamma förmågan att döda nematoder (millimeterstora rundmaskar) och använda dem som näring. Vissa arter är obligata parasiter, medan andra är fakultativa saprofyter, vilket innebär att de förutom att parasitera nematoder lever av dött organiskt material. READ MORE
