- ... The tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) is one of the most widely consumed vegetables and is a component of the so-called “Mediterranean diet.” It represents a significant source of antioxidants in the human diet, with an important biological function (lycopene and β-carotene), as well as other components with antioxidant properties. Antioxidant contents differ according to the variety of tomat ...

- ... This paper presents an investigation into the influence of several culinary factors, such as water temperature, infusion time, stirring and dosage form, on polyphenol content and antioxidant capacity (TEAC values) during the domestic preparation of green tea. The results obtained show that water temperature and infusion time strongly influence total polyphenol levels and the antioxidant capacity o ...

- ... Artificial aging techniques were applied to samples of rum. These samples were then compared, by artificial neural nets, with traditionally aged rums. Analysis was based on the phenolic and furanic composition of each sample. There were found to be few statistical differences between samples, thus confirming the possibility of applying artificial aging techniques to obtain rum with phenolic and fu ...
