Evening snacks are as important as other meals of the day to meet the energy requirement of one third day of the day. Even after full we craved for snacks. We room into kitchen to satisfy our taste buds. Just last evening I got a client he was so curious for snacks he was so worried if can’t take this and that then what should I eat for snacking. Frustration is quite conspicuous. So, this write up is all about evening snacks for heart patients. Here are some easy and simple oil free and less oil snacks for heart patients.

Published: May 09, 2022

Rhopalosiphum padi is an important pest in agricultural production. In order to reduce the use of chemical pesticides and improve the control effect, the study reported the insecticidal activity of the crude extract from 18 strains Epichloë bromicola isolated from Elymus tangutorum. The results showed that the crude extract of E. bromicola displayed insecticidal activity against R. padi. The results showed that 6strains with good activity were strains 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, and 18, and their mortality rate (65%, 71.7%, 75%, 88.3%, 60%, and 70.0%) reached more than 60% at 48h. However, the five strains of 4, 13-15, and 17 had no insecticidal activity, but could promote the growth of R. padi. Among them, strain 7 had the best insecticidal activity at 48h, and the mortality rate reached 88.3%. At the same time, the mortality rate of 48h was significantly higher than that of 24h. In conclusion, the crude extract of strain 7 with significant insecticidal activity will be of great significance for the biological control of R. padi in the future.

Sailing through the uncharted waters of the COVID-19 pandemic the world seems to have come together in support of their Health workers who are diligently providing care to the patients despite the severe lack of resources and dangers to their own health. The so-called ceremonial ‘Covid warriors’ started captaining this sinking ship from the start of the outbreak donning anything from cotton masks, bandanas to Raincoats and suit made of Garbage polyethene. In an underfunded creaky public health system of developing countries like India COVID 19 has exposed all the patch works. While the World Health Organization recommends a doctor patient ratio of 1:1,000, there are fewer than one doctor available for every 1,457 Indians [1]. These extraordinary times have increased the pressure on already overworked health care workers manifold.

The essential oils of Cymbopogon distans from Gansu and Sichuan were obtained by dynamic headspace method and analyzed by gas chromatography and mass spectrometry for different storage periods (1 month, 3 months, 6 months, and 12 months). The types of chemical constituents of essential oil from Gansu C. distans with different storage periods are alkanes, esters, amides, and ketones. In addition to the above four, compounds of Sichuan C. distans essential oil also include aldehydes, benzenes, and carboxylic acids. Alkanes of the essential oil collected from the two regions increased with storage time. After 12 months of
storage, amides was the largest in the essential oil of Gansu, while that of Sichuan was ketones. The essential oils of Gansu and Sichuan C. distans were identified 24 and 27 compounds, respectively. Among these compounds, hexadecane and heneicosane are the major compounds inessential oil of Gansu and Sichuan C. distans, respectively. Dibutyl phthalate, hexacosane, and heneicosane were produced in the two places in the same period, which can be used to identify the chemical fingerprint of C. distans. Six differential metabolites (nonadecane, heptadecane, octadecane, dibutyl phthalate, 2-methyl-hexacosane, and heneicosane) can be used as a basis for judging the origin of C. distans.

To live a healthy life style and be free from diseases, fruits must be incorporated in one’s daily food. Fruits are of high nutritional value and provide the body with the required daily allowance. They are highly perishable, but can be made into different products to make them available all year round. They can be processed into products which includes; fruit juice, jellies, marmalades, candies, fruit bars and jams. This study analyses jam produced using date powder and compared it with commercial jam produced using table sugar. The percentage compositions of the blends considered were 50%:50%; 70%:30%; 30%:70% of orange and apple pulps respectively with constant amount of date powder (50%). In addition to the pulp blends, 2.9% commercial pectin was added together with citric acid, and date powder. The entire mixture was heated at 120°C for 25 mins to enhance the viscosity of the blends. Proximate, microbial, physico-chemical analyses, sensory evaluation and Vitamin constituents of the experimental samples and the commercial jam were evaluated. The commercial jam was found best having higher scores in all the sensory parameters. However, in respect to proximate composition, the experimental samples had the highest in protein, ash, moisture, and fibre while the commercial jam only scored high in fat, carbohydrate. In respect to microbial count minimum fungal and bacterial growth, 1.00 cfu X 103 g-1 and 1.00 cfu X 105 g-1 respectively were recorded in the experimental samples at 3 weeks after production. The control sample had the highest value in vitamin A content (130.35mg/100g) and the least in vitamin C content (1.64mg/100g).The nutritional analysis and sensory evaluation obtained proved that the orange and apple jam samples made with date powder is a promising functional product which can be consumed by both young and adults.

The Human Senses and Elderly

Published: July 10, 2022

The loss of human senses is one of the many consequences of aging. This new way of coping with life sometimes makes the elderly vulnerable to disease, especially when it comes to the gastrointestinal system.
The onset of anorexia, malabsorption, hypertension or diabetes are closely related to poor nutrition that can lead to the loss of the sense of taste or smell; an endless cycle between age, sensory losses and poor nutrition.
In Cuba, the population over 65 years of age has been increasing over time, being at this moment one of the most aged countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. Studies on nutrition in the elderly, as well as the creation of new products for this age group have been increasing. Therefore, it is necessary to understand the whole process of sensory losses and their influence on nutrition.

Nutritional aspects for sustainable development of livestock systems based on tropical pastures and fodders
Nutritional aspects of livestock production in concern to sustainable development is under review are reviewed. This represents a meaningful challenge to stockman, technicians, directors and researchers of the area. Application of sustainable animal production concepts and nutritional principles for milk and meat production mediate in the interpretation and management of biological factors that rule sustainable tropical livestock production. Emphasis is on potential and limits of tropical roughages and basic aspects of digestive physiology and metabolism of ruminants in order to increase its alimentary efficiency. This way converges to matching ruminant production systems with available resources and the placement for establishment adequate feeding systems. The goal is to design production systems based on grazing, trees and shrubs for forage, byproducts, farming crops and its residues, as adequate supplements and complements. Objectives will be diversify, integrate and alimentary self-sufficiency, based on scientific, economic, social and environmental elements. Tropical livestock sustainable production at farm level and its rural and environmental bounds, posse a decisive space where principles for nutrition, feeding, management of animals and plants, could increase productivity, stability, resilience and step up economic feasibility. A sustainable agriculture requirement goes to the development of human resources and not only enterprising and technical items. The importance of a rational use of natural and environment resources and an increase of human capability in order to an agricultural development with sustainable basis is irrecusably.

Published: July 21, 2022

This systematic review study aimed to analyze the effects of glutamine on irritable bowel syndrome, demonstrating the adequate dose of glutamine for the treatment of IBS and identifying which clinical symptoms are improved with glutamine supplementation that include a relationship with the restoration of the intestinal wall, increase of immune cells, among other effects. Forth research, a systematic literature review of articles published between 2011 and 2021 was carried out. The research demonstrated that glutamine supplementation helps to protect the intestinal mucosa, increasing the capacity of immune cells, decreasing the translocation of bacteria and toxins after intestinal injury, preventing infections and inflammation, improving the symptoms of individuals with IBS. It is concluded that glutamine supplementation enhances the synthesis of this amino acid, which is extremely important in situations of metabolic stress and to exercise activities related to intestinal villi, consequently improving nutrient absorption.
