Immunoanalysis tool monitors unwanted substances in food

Yuri Lebedin and Alexandr Grachev report on the development of an immunoanalysis tool for monitoring foods from fields and farms to the kitchen table.

Trigger of deadly food toxin discovered

Researchers for the first time have discovered what triggers a deadly toxin to form, which could lead to methods of limiting its production.

New Joint Venture between Vitiva and Food Quality

FutureMeat is a consulting, marketing and sales company targeting fresh meat manufacturers, offering full natural solutions and custom-made blends for various meat applications that bear clean labels.

Good results on food cotton in field

Field trials of a new cotton are verifying previous lab and greenhouse studies indicating the crop could become a source of protein for millions of malnourished people in the world.

Innovative Technology for Fresher, Better Food

Researchers in Germany have developed a new system based on metal-oxide sensor technology that could check food quality and safety in a quick yet cost-effective and reliable way.

Brain response food may aid weight loss

A difference in brain activity patterns may explain why some people are able to maintain a significant weight loss while others regain the weight, according to a new study.

Study: Organic food not nutritionally better

Systematic review of literature over 50 years finds no evidence for superior nutritional content of organic produce.

Food safety: NEMO Sanitary Pumps

The exclusive NEMO modular pump design, combined with food grade Nitrile or EPDM stators create a proven and reliable solution to all your sanitary pump applications.

Food technology: Corn yield stability varies with rotations, fertility

Understanding temporal variability in crop yields has implications for sustainable crop production, particularly since greater fluxes in crop yields are projected with global climate change.

Medical news: Pre-chewed food could transmit HIV

Researchers have uncovered the first cases in which HIV almost certainly was transmitted from mothers or other caregivers to children through pre-chewed food.

Food safety: Nestle cookie dough recall update

Nestle continues to work closely with the FDA and CDC on an investigation into E. coli O157:H7 illnesses associated with the consumption of raw, refrigerated cookie dough.

Food technology: Virus-resistant grapevines

Researchers are making certain plants resistant to the Grapevine fanleaf virus - the cause of fanleaf disease and resulting in deformed grapes and crop loss - by genetic engineering.

Food technology: Herbicide diversity needed

Using a diverse herbicide application strategy may increase production costs, but a study shows the practise will drastically reduce weeds and seeds that are resistant to a popular herbicide.

Food Technology: Overfishing and evolution

The fish population in coral reef areas is often assessed by snorkelers or SCUBA divers, but new research shows that these methods may misrepresent the number of fish.

Food safety: Scientists study Bovine TB

The development of new tools to better understand bovine TB and to help disease eradication efforts by the USDA is the focus of a workshop to be held at NIMBioS.

Food, energy outpace production

With the caloric needs of the planet expected to soar by 50 percent in the next 40 years, planning and investment in global agriculture will become critically important, according a new report.

Food technology advance in understanding cellulose synthesis

Cellulose is a fibrous molecule that makes up plant cell walls, gives plants shape and form and is a target of renewable, plant-based biofuels research.

Milk adopts green food technology techniques

Dairy genetics, nutrition, herd management and other technologies over the past 60 years have resulted in a modern milk production system that has a smaller carbon footprint.

Shellfish face an uncertain future because of food safety

Overfishing and disease have decimated shellfish populations. Researchers have discovered another serious threat to these valuable filter feeders - rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide.

Biotechnology discovery of brain molecule reduces food intake

Researchers have identified a new appetite suppressant for promoting weight loss that they say works in rodents and may one day be used to develop an effective anti-obesity treatment.
