“This study evaluates the influence of information on the health benefits for acceptance of four exotic tropical fruit juices: acai, camu-camu, caja and umbu. One hundred and six evaluators participated in the tests and sensory acceptability of the four juices in relation to the overall impression was assessed using a hedonic scale of nine points. Testing was conducted in three
stages: the first with no information, the second with the information on juice flavor and the last with the information on health benefits from consumption of such juice. Between the second and third session the evaluators were asked to fill out a questionnaire in order to obtain its socioeconomic and cultural profile. It was observed by internal preference mapping that the caja and umbu juices showed higher sensory acceptance in all sessions. Camu-camu juice had the highest sensory rejection. It was found that the information on the taste of gal and caja juices positively
influenced consumer acceptance. However the influence of information on health benefits can be observed Smoothened Agonist for all evaluated juices, but despite this information the camu-camu A-1155463 juice continued in the area of sensory rejection (hedonic scores below 5). In the questionnaire it can be observed that the main factor of motivation for consumption of fruit juice is taste, and not the health benefits. It was concluded that the information of health benefits can positively influence sensory acceptance, provided there
is sensory pleasure. (C) 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.”
“The role of intravenous iron in contributing to oxidative stress and endothelial dysfunction in chronic kidney disease (CKD) is debatable. The present study assessed differences in fasting plasma malondialdehyde (pMDA) levels 30 minutes before and after intravenous infusion of low molecular weight iron dextran (ID) (n = 19), iron-sucrose (IS) (n = 20), and sodium ferrigluconate complex (SFGC) (n = 20) in stage 3 and 4 CKD patients. Post-infusion pMDA levels were significantly raised with respect to baseline (p 0.001). pMDA was significantly higher in the SFGC group vs. IS (3.02 0.84 mol/L vs. 2.82 0.44 mol/L, p = 0.034) or SFGC vs. ID (3.02 0.84 mol/L vs. 2.92 0.20 mol/L, p = 0.048). There was no difference between IS vs. ID (2.82 0.44 mol/L vs. 2.92 0.20 mol/L, p = 0.21). To conclude, all forms of parenteral iron, especially SFGC, significantly raise pMDA levels in the immediate post-transfusion period.”
