Applying methyl jasmonate can mimic the defense response to insect damage in broccoli and enhances the production of glucosinolates, especially inducible indolyl GS-neoglucobrassicin. Previous studies have suggested that glucosinolates and their hydrolysis products are anti-carcinogenic. Therefore, MeJA treatment may increase the nutritional quality of broccoli. However, there are few reports on the sensory evaluation and consumer acceptance of MeJA-treated broccoli. In this study, an untrained consumer panel could not detect any taste differences between steamed MeJA-treated and untreated broccoli, even though the steamed MeJA-treated broccoli contained 50% more glucosinolates than untreated broccoli. The partial least square-regression model suggested that neoglucobrassicin-derived hydrolysis compounds were the major metabolites that determined overall preference for raw MeJA-treated broccoli potentially due to their potential negative sensory qualities. The results imply that MeJA treatment can increase the nutritional quality of broccoli without sacrificing taste in precooked meals or frozen vegetables.

In this work, the effect of different elicitors and culture conditions on the production of glucosinolates in broccoli cell cultures was studied. The results showed that 0.5 μM coronatine was the bes...
The use of methyl jasmonate, alone or in combination with cyclic oligosaccharides such as cyclodextrins, has proved to be a successful strategy for increasing the production of trans-resveratrol in Vi...
Elicitation is an economic and sustainable technique for increasing the content of secondary metabolites, mainly bioactive compounds, in plants grown for better human nutrition. The aim of this study ...
Induction of essential oil production in Mentha x piperita by plant growth promoting bacteria was correlated with an increase in jasmonate and salicylate levels and a higher density of glandular trichomes.
Plant growth promoting bacteria (PGPB) are agriculturally important soil bacteria that increase plant growth. We subjected peppermint to inoculation with three species of PGPB. After inoculation, the ...
Typically, broccoli arrives at the store within 7-14 days of harvest and is kept refrigerated until purchased or considered waste. To date, information has been limited on how this time on the shelf o...
The objectives of the study are 1) to characterize plasma and urinary metabolites that originate from glucobrassicin, 1-methoxyglucobrassicin, 4-methoxyglucobrassicin, and 4-hydroxyglucobr...
Nowadays there is an increasing demand by consumers on healthy food products prepared in convenient forms, simple to use and not containing additives. In this sense, broccoli sprouts (Bras...
The primary objective of this study is to determine the effects of different methods of broccoli preparation on levels of urinary glucosinolate metabolites. The secondary objective is to d...
To determine whether dietary sulforaphane (SFN), naturally available from eating broccoli, improves pain in people with knee osteoarthritis (OA), the trial will compare broccoli soup (rich...
This randomized early phase I trial studies how well broccoli sprout/broccoli seed extract supplement works in decreasing toxicity in heavy smokers. Broccoli sprout/broccoli seed extract s...
The sum total of measures taken and regulatory policies enacted to ensure the safe use of consumer products.
The field devoted in Informatics from multiple consumer or patient views.
A group of conditions due to overexposure to or overexertion in excess environmental temperature. It includes heat cramps, which are non-emergent and treated by salt replacement; HEAT EXHAUSTION, which is more serious, treated with fluid and salt replacement; and HEAT STROKE, a condition most commonly affecting extremes of age, especially the elderly, accompanied by convulsions, delusions, or coma and treated with cooling the body and replacement of fluids and salts. (From Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
3-((4-Amino-2-methyl-5-pyrimidinyl)methyl)-4-methyl-5-(4,6,8,8-tetrahydroxy-3,5,7-trioxa-4,6,8-triphosphaoct-1-yl)thiazolium hydroxide, inner salt, P,P',P''-trioxide. The triphosphate ester of thiamine. In Leigh's disease, this compound is present in decreased amounts in the brain due to a metabolic block in its formation.
A system of therapeutics founded by Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), based on the Law of Similars where "like cures like". Diseases are treated by highly diluted substances that cause, in healthy persons, symptoms like those of the disease to be treated. The dilutions are repeated so many times that there is less than one molecule per dose and it is suggested that benefit is from the energetic life force of the original substance.
