  1. 1. Cassava Processing: Safety and Protein Fortification

    Author : Lucas Tivana; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Cassava; Cyanogenic glycosides; aquacyano-cobyrinic acid; processing; amylose; amylopectin; protein; texture;

    Abstract : Cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz) is an important and cheap source of carbohydrate in tropical regions, particularly in Sub-Sahara Africa. Cassava as a human food is a good source of energy as it has a comparable high energy density of about 610 kJ/100 g fresh root. READ MORE

  2. 2. A Molecular Approach for Investigation of the Prevalence and Neurotoxin Formation of Clostridium botulinum in Food Safety Assessment

    University dissertation from Applied Microbiology (LTH)

    Author : Maria Lövenklev; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; neurotoxin gene expression; neurotoxin; food safety assessment; food preservation; Clostridium botulinum; enrichment PCR; Food and drink technology; qRT-PCR; Livsmedelsteknik; prevalence;

    Abstract : In the development of new food products, more knowledge is needed about the occurrence and quantity of food-borne pathogens in the food chain to be able to implement effective control measures and assure food safety. In addition, improved understanding of how environmental factors and food preservatives effect the microbial virulence expression in foods will enable the formulation of new strategies for food preservation and risk assessment.

  3. 3. Frame dynamics and stakeholders in risk governance

    University dissertation from Lund University (Media-Tryck)

    Author : Beatrice Bengtsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; GMOs; framing; EU; stakeholders; expertise; governance rationalities; policy; feed; boundary framing; frame extension; intertextuality; food chain; participation; EFSA; DG SANCO; risk assessment; risk management; threshold; risks.;

    Abstract : The EU governance of food safety and GM food and feed has gone through significant changes since the BSE crisis and food scares during the 1990s. This work focuses on one particular new feature; the role of stakeholders representing the food chain: biotech associations, farmer organizations, food and feed processors, consumer organizations and environmental NGOs.

  4. 4. Improving assessment of cardiovascular arrhythmic safety of new pharmacologic agents

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Lars Johannesen; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Fourteen drugs have been removed from the market worldwide due to an increased risk of torsade de pointes (TdP), a potentially fatal ventricular arrhythmia. Almost all of the removed drugs that have been linked to an increased risk for TdP have been shown to block the human ether-à-go-go-related gene (hERG) potassium channel. READ MORE

  5. 5. Foraging behaviour in benthivorous fish

    University dissertation from Department of Ecology, Lund University

    Author : Marika Stenberg; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Marinbiologi; resource assessment; giving-up densities; predation risk; foraging behaviour; limnology; marine biology; Ekologi; akvatisk ekologi; limnologi; group foraging; benthivorous fish; aquatic ecology; Hydrobiology; Ecology;

    Abstract : The foraging ability of an organism is essential since it affects various traits, e.g. growth, reproduction effort, social status and, ultimately, fitness. READ MORE
