(2013, p. 1141) studied the effect of gamma irradiation on Ara h 6 allergenicity reduction in peanut. The result suggested that irradiation influenced significantly on secondary and tertiary structures alteration of Ara h 6. Increasing the dose of gamma irradiation also deceased the antigenicity of isolated peanut allergen Ara h 6 and a whole peanut protein extract. Moreover, there was a good correlation between IgG binding to Ara h 6 and the loss in a-helix was reported. This indicated that reducing or eliminating peanut allergenicity by irradiation might be one of an efficient method.
In the long run feeding livestock what naturally grows is financially beneficial to the farmer and the consumer because it cuts out the cost of unnecessary medicines, doctors’ visits, purchases of number 2 corn, oil, etc. Furthermore, grass fed meats are worth more and selling this within the local community, which can boost the local economy and can aid in a substantial farming business. Sociology and psychology are involved due to the fact that malnutrition (animals and people), the treatment of animals, the psychological effects of grass fed produce, and many of these issues are societal. Furthermore, the psychological effects of consuming grass fed produce increases the intake of healthy fats, which is beneficial to our

Nutritive Value of Wheatgrass The use of grass as a functional ingredient with specific health benefits is not a new concept. Several cereal grasses such as wheatgrass, barley grass, oat grass etc have been used as human food supplements since 1930 (Yadav et al 2013). Wheatgrass contains nutrients like 860 mg% protein, 18.5 mg% chlorophyll, 15mg% calcium, 38 mg% lysine, 7.5 mg% vitamin C and an abundance of micronutrients, such as B-complex vitamins and amino acids (Rana et al 2011). Wheatgrass is considered to be a complete food because it contains every amino acid, vitamin and mineral (some only in trace amounts) necessary for human nutrition.
Wheat is foremost important and strategic cereal crop for the world’s populations. It is the major staple food of about two billion people (36% of the world population). It exceeds in acreage and production every other grain crop (including rice, maize, etc.) and is therefore, the most important cereal grain crop of the world, which is cultivated over a
Introduction Food is very essential thing for the growth and development in a child. Children cannot live without food. Good food refers to the variety of good food for giving good Health. It contains nutrients. It contains natural substance that a human body needs to grow healthy and grow properly.
Agriculture is currently the largest user of water at the global level. The food production and supply chain accounts for about 30% of total global energy consumption. Rice and wheat are the staple food in South Asia. It is about 50% of dietary energy comes from these two crops. However, these crops need about 1000 tonnes of water to produce 1 tonne of grain (Brown,
Introduction Wheat grain is a staple food being consumed worldwide, playing an important role in human nutrition. The main component in wheat flour is starch, constituting an average of 70% of its weight. The molecular structure of starch is made up of 2 polymers, amylose and amylopectin (Shewry, 2009), and it is these 2 molecules that makes up the backbone and branching points of the starch granule. In the process of bread making, these starch granules swell and gelatinized to due to the increase uptake of water (Yasunaga, Bushuk and Irvine, 1968). The other main component found in wheat grain is gluten, which can be used in a variety of applications ranging from food such as bread to biomedical purposes (Lagrain et al., 2010; Reddy
These are needed for growth and development from childhood to entire life cycle for maintenance of body functions (Aguilera and Stanley, 1999). Food, water and oxygen are life-sustaining substance essential to human life. Nutrients are nourishing substances in food. These are needed for growth and development from childhood to entire life cycle for maintenance of body functions (Krishnaswamy and Sesikeran, 2010, p 1f). 2.1.1 Chemical composition of human body The chemical composition of human body is exactly the ads that human eats every day, but none of the single food can supply all nutrients, the body needs.
Food is essential for all forms of life; and humans need food for survival. Like shelter, clothes, education and healthcare, food is also a basic necessity for mankind. Majority of the food items are biological in origin. The process of harvesting, processing, distribution, storage and preparation is quite complex. Understanding the process, and solving various problems during the whole process, requires broad-based knowledge and training.
