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. Improved chromatographic performance in red chilli powder pesticide residue quantitation by retention gap introduction in gas chromatography tandem mass spectrometry

    • Thu, 04/28/2022 - 04:00
    • Journal of Food Science and Technology
    • Analysis of agrochemical residues in red chilli powder is always considered difficult because of higher matrix interference due to carotenoid pigments and other co-extractives. During the sample preparation, matrix components were co-extracted along with the target compounds leading to frequent source cleaning, changing of liner and column.

  2. Determination of Synthetic Pyrethroids and Hexaconazole Residues in curry leaves and decontamination through household techniques

    • Sun, 02/27/2022 - 12:00
    • Journal of Food Science and Technology
    • A multiresidue method was developed and validated for the simultaneous determination of eight synthetic pyrethroids and hexaconazole fungicide residues in curry leaves. The method involves extraction of leaf sample with ethyl acetate, purified by dispersive SPE with primary secondary amine and graphitized carbon black.

  4. Effect of ozone treatments on the removal of pesticide residues and postharvest quality in green pepper

    • Mon, 04/26/2021 - 02:02
    • Journal of Food Science and Technology
    • The use of ozone as a tool in the storage of some horticultural produces is recommended for all steps from harvest to consumption. However, little is known about its effects on the removal of pesticides and postharvest physiology of fresh peppers. In the present study, the effects of ozone treatment on the removal of pesticides, storage life and quality of green peppers were investigated. Malathion, emamectin benzoate and acetamiprid were applied to pepper plants before harvest.

  5. Differentiation of tomatoes based on isotopic, elemental and organic markers

    • Sat, 01/25/2020 - 03:25
    • Journal of Food Science and Technology
    • In this study, 41 tomato samples were investigated by means of stable isotope ratios (δ13C, δ18O and δ2H), elemental content, phenolic compounds and pesticides in order to classify them, according to growing conditions and geographical origin.

  6. Analytical method validation, dissipation and safety evaluation of combination fungicides fenamidone + mancozeb and iprovalicarb + propineb in/on tomato

    • Sun, 01/19/2020 - 03:25
    • Journal of Food Science and Technology
    • Dissipation behavior and degradation kinetics of fenamidone + mancozeb (Sectin 60 WG) and iprovalicarb + propineb (Melody Duo 66.75 WP) in tomato were studied at recommended dose (RD) and double dose (DD) of application.
