  1. 1. Effects of Pulsed Electric Fields on Plant Tissue

    University dissertation from Food Technology, Lund University

    Author : Yongyut Chalermchat; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Technological sciences; Electropermeabilization; Pulsed electric fields; Plant Tissue; Teknik;

    Abstract : The interaction between biological cells and external electric fields has been of interest by scientists for several decades. Exposure of the cells to electric fields leads to various kinds of biophysical and biochemical responses. These responses can be used to characterize cell properties and/or to manipulate cell characteristics. READ MORE

  4. 4. Antioxidants in Andean food and meals

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Archaeological Research Laboratory, Stockholm University

    Author : Leslie Tejeda; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Antioxidant capacity; polyphenolic compounds; anthocyanidins; individual food; meals; ans and stan genes;

    Abstract : Abstract The constant need to improve health and to prevent disease in Bolivia, especially in the Andean region with its extreme environmental conditions (high altitude and lower temperatures), motivated us to extend studies of antioxidant sources in foods and plants, since antioxidants are believed to have major health benefits. Spectrophotometric methods, such as ABTS (2, 2’- azinobis-3-ethylbenzotiazoline-6-sulfonic acid) and FRAP (ferric reduction antioxidant power), were used to evaluate antioxidant activity. READ MORE

  5. 5. People-plant interrelationships : historical plant use in native Sami societies

    University dissertation from ; Department of Forest Ecology and Management, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

    Author : Anna-Maria Rautio; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES;

    Abstract : Different plants have played an important role historically in the subsistence of the native Sami people of northern Fennoscandia. Generally, their use of plants have however been regarded as less vital in their overall subsistence and in comparison to the domesticated reindeer and the hunted game and fish. READ MORE
