The aim of the work was to study the feasibility of using aqueous extracts from rowanberry, blue-berried honeysuckle, and chokeberry pomace for the formulation of fish gelatin films with antioxidant and antimicrobial activity as well as improved mechanical and water barrier properties. The predominant phenolic components in rowanberry and chokeberry extracts were hydroxycinnamates, and in blue-berried honeysuckle extract antho cyanins. Although...
Evaluation of candidate reference material obtained from selenium - enriched sprouts for the purpose of selenium speciation analysisPublication
Selenium is an essential element in animals and humans. Diet supplementation with selenium-rich vegetables has better chemoprotective effect than Se (IV) and SeMet. The production of selenium-enriched vegetables requires a preliminary stage in soil preparation, which may subsequently pose a risk of soil contamination. It seems that the sprouting of seeds under controlled conditions would be a good solution for delivering SeMetSeCys...
The study verifies the possibility of application of juices from selected fruits characterized by the high antioxidant potential as natural acidity regulators with improved nutritional properties. The tested non-typical fruits included mirabelle plum, sea buckthorn and blue-berried honeysuckle. Beetroot juice whose pH is about 6.0 served as a model food product. Potentiometric titration was used to compare the efficacy of tested...
Quantitative assessment of the main antioxidant compounds, antioxidant activities and FTIR spectra from commonly consumed fruits, compared to standard kiwi fruitPublication
Bioactive compounds (polyphenols and ascorbic acid) and dietary fibers, and related antioxidant activities of commonly consumed apples, bananas, peaches, pears, blond and red grapefruits, pomelos, oranges, lemons, red plums, white grapes, mango, persimmon and strawberries grown in the same geographical and climatic conditions were compared with standard kiwi fruit. The presence of polyphenols was studied by Fourier transform infrared...
Determining pesticide contamination in honey by LC-ESI-MS/MS - Comparison of pesticide recoveries of two liquid-liquid extraction based approachesPublication
Honey, a valuable food product, may be contaminated by xenobiotics during its production and/or harvest. The determination of trace levels of contaminants in a complex matrix like honey still presents a challenge to analytical chemists. The aim of this work was to assess and compare the extraction efficiencies of 30 pesticide residues (acaricides, insecticides, herbicides, fungicides), belonging to over 15 different chemical classes....
Native potato starch was sulfated, selenated, borated, silicated and zincatated by means of microwave-assisted reactions with varying doses of relevant reagents. Resulting products were characterized involving rheological behavior of pastes, their weight-average molecular weight (Mw), and radius of gyration (Rg). Most of the pastes showed shear-thinning behavior, with the flow behavior index (n) below unity. The pastes of starch...
The termostability, bioactive compounds and antioxidant activity of some vegetables subjected to different durations of boiling: investigation in vitro.Publication
This research was performed in order to compare the water and acetone extracts of raw and boiled for 10, 20, 40 and 60 min Korean lotus roots (KLR) and Polish white onion (PWO) in the contents of theirbioactive compounds, antioxidant activity and thermostability. It was found that polyphenols (mg GAE/g), flavanols (mg GAE/g), flavonoids (mg CE/g), anthocyanins(mg CGE/kg) and tannins (mg CE/g) in water extract of raw lotus roots...

Partial characterization of white cabbages (Brassica oleracea var. capitata f. alba) from different regions by glucosinolates, bioactive compounds, total antioxidant activities and proteinsPublication
W pracy przedstawiono wyniki oznaczeń glukozynolanów (GLS), aktywności przeciwutleniającej (TRSA) oraz białek w próbkach białej kapusty pochodzącej z różnych rejonów geograficznych Europy. Glukobrassycyna i sinigryna były dominującymi GLS we wszystkich próbkach kapusty. Całkowita zawartość GLS mieściła się w zakresie od 3,3-7,7 µmol/g sm. Aktywność przeciwulteniająca próbek kapusty została oszacowana za pomocą testów ABTS,...
The quality indices of Atlantic mackerel, hot smoked at core temperature not exceeding 60°C, containing 14–27 g salt and 580–670 g water per kg meat, was determined just after smoking and during storage. The aerobic plate count after smoking, chilling and packing in cardboard boxes was 0–12 cfu/25 cm2of the skin of the smoked fish and 10–240 cfu/g of flesh. It was 1.9 log cycle lower than that in the frozen raw material. At 2°C,...
