The aim of this work was to valorise an industrial food by-product and to produce a microalgal biomass rich in phytochemicals at high added value for food and nutraceutical applications. The biochemical composition, in vitro digestibility and antioxidant activity of Galdieria sulphuraria biomass grown heterotrophically on standard medium (SM) and on spent Cherry-Brine Liquid (sCBL) were assessed and compared. The biomass produced in sCBL was characterized by a lower content of proteins and lipids, while showing an increase in carbohydrates and polyphenols (5.3 vs 1.6 mg g). The sCBL biomass lipid moiety had a lower palmitic and linoleic acid content and a higher oleic acid concentration than SM. The total protein digestibility of Galdieria grown in SM and sCBL was 79% and 63% respectively. The antioxidant activity (AA) of G. sulphuraria biomass grown in sCBL was significantly higher than that grown in SM. Studying the AA release for sCBL biomass during the digestion, the highest value was found in the intestinal phase. In conclusion, G. sulphuraria has a valuable nutritional profile and could become a valuable source of phytochemicals, depending on the cultivation media. Cultivation on sCBL would allow an environmentally and economically sustainable process, valorising the food by-product and producing a microalgal biomass rich in cherry anthocyanins with high AA released at the intestinal level.

The aim is to study the effects of flaxseed mucilage, rich in dietary fiber on apparent fat and energy digestibility in young adults.
Dietary fiber is a type of carbohydrate which is not digested in the human small intestine. Whole grains are a source of dietary fiber that are used to promote health; however, using whole...
The purpose of this study is to compare the development of human embryos grown in a conventional culture dish to those grown in a new embryo culture device known as the SMART System.
This study evaluates the effect of different methods of preparation (cooked and consumed hot vs cooked, cooled overnight and consumed cold) and variation in the activity of salivary amylas...
Cells grown in vitro from neoplastic tissue. If they can be established as a TUMOR CELL LINE, they can be propagated in cell culture indefinitely.
Devices used in a technique by which cells or tissues are grown in vitro or, by implantation, in vivo within chambers permeable to diffusion of solutes across the chamber walls. The chambers are used for studies of drug effects, osmotic responses, cytogenic and immunologic phenomena, metabolism, etc., and include tissue cages.
The malignant stem cells of TERATOCARCINOMAS, which resemble pluripotent stem cells of the BLASTOCYST INNER CELL MASS. The EC cells can be grown in vitro, and experimentally induced to differentiate. They are used as a model system for studying early embryonic cell differentiation.
A plant genus of the family BRASSICACEAE that is grown in rock gardens. T. arvense is grown for its large, round ornamental seed pods. The common name of pennycress usually refers to this genus but may also refer to the genus Microthlaspi.
A genus of gram-negative, aerobic, rod-shaped bacteria found in wet soil containing decaying organic material and in water. Cells tend to be pleomorphic if grown on media containing succinate or coccoid if grown in the presence of an alcohol as the sole carbon source. (From Bergey's Manual of Determinative Bacteriology, 9th ed)
Food is any substance consumed to provide nutritional support for the body. It is usually of plant or animal origin, and contains essential nutrients, such as carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, or minerals. The substance is ingested by an organism ...
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
