Research Publications (Food Safety)

The Food Safety Publications tracks research that is published across national and international peer-reviewed journals. Recent articles are available ahead of print and searchable by Journal, Article Title, and Category. The research publications are tracked across six categories: Bacterial Pathogens, Chemical Contaminants, Natural Toxins, Parasites, Produce Safety, and Viruses. Articles produced by USDA Grant Funding Agencies and FDA Grant Funding Agencies are also tracked.

  1. Development of novel green pesticide system by using cold plasma to control Plodia interpunctella in pistachio

    • Journal of Food Processing and Preservation, Accepted Article. Iran is the most important exporter of pistachios in the world. One of pistachio export challenges is the damage of pistachio by warehouse pests. Many efforts have been made to discover alternative methods of non-toxic pest control. To study the effect of the cold plasma jet on P. interpunctella of pistachio nut, three treatment variables were used by argon/air ratio, the plasma exposure time, and the power supply voltage.

  2. Effects of four new processing technologies on pesticide residues and saponins content in ginseng

    • Tue, 06/16/2020 - 22:15
    • Journal of Food Processing and Preservation
    • Pesticide residue and saponin content are two important factors affecting the quality of ginseng products. In this paper, the effects of four new drying processing technologies on pesticide residues and saponins in ginseng were studied. The change in pesticide residue was determined by GC and the content of ginsenoside was determined by HPLC. After the microwave treatment for 32 min, the degradation rate of pesticide residues was best.

  3. Evaluation of inhibitory activities of two medicinal plant extracts Parkia biglobosa and Lonicera japonica against spoilage microorganisms isolated from mulberry fruit

    • Journal of Food Processing and Preservation
    • Two medicinal plants, African Locust Bean (Parkia biglobosa) and Lonicera japonica, traditionally used in West Africa and China were investigated against four spoilage microorganisms: Bacillus subtilis, Cronobacter dublinensis, Pantoea agglomerans, and Bacillus sp., isolated from mulberry fruit. The aqueous extract of the P. biglobosa (ALB) was potent with average inhibitory zones against four spoilage microorganisms recorded as (Means ± SD) 6.5 to 19.5 mm as well as 6.5 to 15.5 mm for L.

  4. Effects of shiitakes household processing on the residues of six pesticides

    • Sat, 02/15/2020 - 03:28
    • Journal of Food Processing and Preservation
    • The consumption of pesticide residues contaminated shiitakes resulted in important health issues in humans. This study evaluated the effects of classic household processing on six different pesticides used in shiitake culture, detailed in pesticide residue behavior and processing factors (PFs). Our results demonstrated that stir‐frying or frying reduced the residue levels of all six pesticides.
