Food Safety is of fundamental importance for the food processing industry, food retailers and distributors, as well as for the competent authorities because of its potentially direct impact on consumers' health. Next to the prevention of microbiological, chemical, and physical hazards increasing efforts are currently made to combat risks associated with food fraud or food authenticity. Food Safety Management Systems nowadays comprise food safety, food defense, and food fraud prevention measures trying to co...
In sub-Saharan Africa foodborne disease and foodborne disease outbreaks are frequently ascribed to poor personal hygiene of street food vendors and food handlers in food establishments. Evidence on the level of food hygiene practices and food safety measures among food handlers is required for proper planning and implementation of targeted interventions. In this study, we aimed to determine the level of food hygiene and safety measures among street food vendors and food handlers in food establishments of De...
The concept of food matrix has received much attention lately in reference to its effects on food processing, nutrition and health. However, the term matrix is used vaguely by food and nutrition scientists, often as synonymous of the food itself or its microstructure. This review analyses the concept of food matrix and proposes a classification for the major types of matrices found in foods. The food matrix may be viewed as a physical domain that contains and/or interacts with specific constituents of a foo...
Food allergies are on the rise and have a major impact on the quality of life of the food allergic child and their family. Currently, the mainstream treatment for food allergies is strict avoidance and elimination of the allergenic food(s) from the patient's diet in order to prevent an allergic reaction. However, recent advances in research have presented new therapeutic options for food allergic patients that are potentially becoming promising alternatives to traditional treatment. Food immunotherapy is th...
This review examines the current literature and provides insight into the role of food immunotherapy in the management of food-allergic children. Key food immunotherapy trials, benefits, and risks of the intervention, as well as areas requiring further study are all discussed.
We aim to identify the prevalence of food insecurity and to ascertain the association between food insecurity and food intake.
Hazelnut allergy (HA) is one of the more common food allergies (FAs) in Europe with a prevalence of 0.2%. The gold standard for diagnosing FA is oral food challenge (OFC) with the culprit food. Another purpose of OFC is to identify the "threshold level" of food as the dose that elicits symptoms. In this way it is possible to avoid a strict elimination diet and to determine the minimal quantity of the culprit food tolerated by the patient.
Persistent incidents of food fraud in China have resulted in low levels of consumer trust in the authenticity and safety of food that is domestically produced. We examined the relationship between the concerns of Chinese consumers regarding food fraud, and the role that demonstrating authenticity may play in relieving those concerns.
Although, United Arab Emirates (UAE) has one of the highest prevalence of overweight, obesity and type 2 diabetes in the world, however, validated dietary assessment aids to estimate food intake of individuals and populations in the UAE are currently lacking. We conducted two observational studies to evaluate the accuracy of a photographic food atlas which was developed as a tool for food portion size estimation in the UAE. The UAE Food Atlas presents eight portion sizes for each food. Study 1 involved port...
The food environment within and surrounding schools may influence children's diets. This study explored if the internal and external school food environments were associated with intake of specific food groups among adolescents.
"… Food chemistry has the important task to improve food security by the development of applicable strategies to give perishable products longer shelf lives. The discovery of unknown food contaminants and adulterants that are not being searched for is crucial in order to avoid scandals and to provide safe and pure food for the consumer …" Read more in the Guest Editorial by Monika Pischetsrieder.
Up to 3-5% of adults may be affected by food allergies, while approximately 1% are affected by Celiac disease (CD). Food allergy reactions can be severe and potentially fatal, while CD can result in various symptoms. Restaurant and food service establishment staff have an important role in helping to prevent food allergy and CD risks among affected customers.
Recent research has shown that pre-exposure to food can lead to reduced subsequent consumption in older children and adults when they focus on a task with a non-eating goal during exposure. One assumption is that the reduced consumption is a consequence of self-regulation that helps to concentrate on the task. Because self-regulatory mechanisms are still under development in young children, we studied the effects of food pre-exposure in young children under the age of six (N = 81). Children played a mem...
The prevalence of food allergy is increasing. More children are being diagnosed with food allergies, and it is taking longer to outgrow them, among those who develop tolerance. The aim of this review is to draw the profile of the persistent food allergic, so that prevention strategies can be developed and active treatment set up.
Food waste water is one of the most urgent environmental problems for the close connection between food and our daily life. Herein, we use a simple hydrothermal method to prepare a highly efficient catalyst-CeO/CoOcompound on the stainless steel mesh, aiming for food waste water treatment. Possessing the superhydrophilic property and catalytic ability under ultraviolet light, CeO/CoOcoated mesh has successfully processed three representative contaminants in food wastewater, which are soybean oil (food oil),...
Consistently inhibiting responses to palatable food stimuli increases motor suppression for those stimuli and reduces their hedonic value, suggesting a close link between motor inhibition and food reward. The current study aimed to investigate whether GNG training also reduces the motivational, reinforcing value of palatable, high-calorie food. Participants completed either GNG training for high-calorie food or a control task. This was followed by Concurrent Schedules Task (CST) to measure the reinforcing v...
Food allergy is an adverse reaction secondary to a specific immune response after exposure to a food. Knowing the natural course of food allergies is essential for opportune diagnosis and treatment.
High-quality DNA extracts are imperative for downstream applications in molecular identification. Most processed food products undergo heat treatments causing DNA degradation, which hampers application of DNA-based techniques for food authentication. Moreover, the presence of inhibitors in processed food products is also problematic, as inhibitors can impede the process of obtaining high qualities and quantities of DNA. Various approaches in DNA extraction and factors in structure and texture of various foo...
Currently, two food sufficiency questions are utilised as a proxy measure of national food security status in Australia. These questions do not capture all dimensions of food security and have been attributed with underreporting of the problem. The purpose of this study was to investigate food security using the short form of the US Household Food Security Survey Module (HFSSM) within an Australian context; and explore the relationship between food security status and multiple socio-demographic variables.
Food sensitization and challenge proven food allergy has not been compared in urban and rural settings.
Food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome (FPIES) is a non-IgE mediated food allergy that is diagnosed based on clinical findings, but can be confirmed with oral food challenge (OFC). OFC is more often performed to assess development of tolerance. Most studies describing OFC in FPIES are limited in size.
Despite controversy surrounding the construct of food addiction, its relationship with obesity and the validity of the Yale Food Addiction Scale (YFAS), have become emerging fields of study. No prior research has examined the prevalence and correlates of food addiction, and validation of the Modified Yale Food Addiction Scale (mYFAS), in a non-research based weight management clinic setting.
World migration shifts emphasize the necessity of framing health behavior in the context of life course. Mexican-born households in the U.S. disproportionally experience food insecurity, a condition associated with poor health. Food assistance programs may not be accessible to immigrants, suggesting food provisioning strategies may play a critical protective role.
Food allergies reduce the quality of life of affected individuals and may result in anaphylaxis or even death. Allergen-specific immunotherapy (AIT) is based on vaccination with the disease-causing allergens. However, the administration of food allergens can produce severe side effects. Engineered food allergens with altered IgE epitopes hold the promise to improve the safety and efficacy of AIT. Food allergens contain linear and conformational IgE epitopes.

Restrained eaters constantly limit their eating behavior to avoid gaining weight. Previous research suggests that fundamental deficits in response inhibition might play a role in the development of disinhibited eating among restrained eaters. The current study focuses on the impact of food vs. non-food stimuli on response inhibition in high vs. low restrained eaters. Seventy-five females (38 high and 37 low restrained eaters) completed a novel food stop-signal task in which they were required to discriminat...
