- ... Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) fragmentation has been proposed as a time-temperature integrator (TTI) for high-moisture thermal processes using low-acid, high-temperature and high-acid, low-temperature protocols. In this study, dry roasted peanuts were assayed using the same novel molecular TTI. Enterococcus faecium was evaluated as a Salmonella surrogate for process validation and compared to fragment ...

- ... Protein percentage and mineral concentrations are important parameters for determining the seed nutrition quality. Although the U.S. peanut mini-core collection is the important genetic resources for peanut breeding programs, the variability in protein percentage and mineral concentrations for this mini-core has not been well evaluated. The lack of information may hinder its optimum utilization. T ...
