Detecting Fake Parmesan Cheeses
Scientists report on a way to catch adulteration of the regional artisanal products.
Cancer-Fighting Properties Of Horseradish Revealed
Horseradish contains cancer-fighting compounds known as glucosinolates. Glucosinolate type and quantity vary depending on size and quality of the horseradish root. For the first time, the activation of cancer-fighting enzymes by glucosinolate products in horseradish has been documented.
Process Analysis in Real Time
With a real-time mass spectrometer developed by Fraunhofer researchers, it has become possible for the first time to analyze up to 30 components simultaneously from the gas phase and a liquid, including in-situ analysis.
An E.coli Detector May be in Your Hands Soon
Hand-held device that can be used to detect a variety of pathogens—including foodborne pathogens like E. coli—at all stages in the food supply chain, from fields to restaurants may be available soon.
Three Quarters of the Population Believe That Food in Germany is Safe
According to the latest survey results, consumers rate climate change and / or environmental pollution as the most significant risks to health.
Why do Tomatoes Smell "Grassy"?
Researchers identify enzymes that convert the grassy smell of tomatoes into a sweeter scent.
Compounds Found in Fruits Could Treat Diseases
Fruit discovery could provide new treatments for obesity, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Sticky Molecules to Tackle Obesity and Diabetes
Researchers at Okayama University have reported that the overexpression of an adhesion molecule found on the surface of fat cells appears to protect mice from developing obesity and diabetes.
Process Contaminants in Vegetable Oils and Foods
Glycerol-based process contaminants found in palm oil, but also in other vegetable oils, margarines and some processed foods, raise potential health concerns for average consumers of these foods in all young age groups, and for high consumers in all age groups.
Apricot Kernels Pose Risk of Cyanide Poisoning
Eating more than three small raw apricot kernels, or less than half of one large kernel, in a serving can exceed safe levels. Toddlers consuming even one small apricot kernel risk being over the safe level.

Measurement of Phenolic Compounds in Red Wines Using the SpectraMax® Plus384 Microplate Reader

Molecular Devices

Measurement of tannin, iron-reactive phenolics, anthocyanin and polymeric pigment in red wine is an important part of quality control in the wine industry. Precise and reliable measurement of phenolic compounds in wine is critical for making decisions during fermentation, maceration, pressing and blending. Harbertson et al. developed a comprehensive red wine phenolics assay in 2003.1 Traditionally this assay is performed using a cuvette-based UV-vis spectrophotometer. It is a time-consuming and laborious process of reading individual samples in separate cuvettes, recording the results, and analyzing the data. Identifying the need for a rapid and cost-effective way of performing the assay, Heredia et al. adapted the assay for a microplate platform. This approach increases the throughput with respect to labor, time and sample volume. The assay widens the capacity to monitor the fermentations for extraction of phenolic compounds in an average-sized winery. Here we describe the use of MDS Analytical Technologies’ SpectraMax® Plus384 microplate reader and SoftMax® Pro software to efficiently collect and analyze the data for this assay.
