White Wine Additive Curbs That Funky Taste
2013-11-22 04:15:32

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Food scientists report that they have found an additive which may help curb a chemical reaction that causes wine to look, smell and taste "funky." Gal Kreitman, a doctoral candidate in food science at Penn State, led the research team that added chelation compounds that bind with metals to inhibit oxidation - oxygen's ability to react with some of the trace metals that are found in wine. The results of their study were published in a...

NEW YORK, May 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --- Most of us think of our bone structure as a solid, static mass that is hard and unchanging. The fact is our skeletal structure is replaced approximately every ten years. Our bones are dynamic, living tissue that consists of about 25% water, 25% protein and approximately 50% mineral salts including calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium and potassium. Since bone remains are regularly found that are thousands of years old, why are we witnessing a...

Scientist identify the chemical forms of phosphorus with nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Phosphorus is one of the key nutrients that can cause algal blooms and related water quality problems in lakes, rivers, and estuaries worldwide.  Phosphorus entering waters originates from a variety of sources.  Agricultural land receiving long term applications of organic by-products such as animal manure is one of the major contributors.  Such soils often become enriched with P,...

Enviropig is the trademark for a genetically modified line of Yorkshire pigs with the capability to digest plant phosphorus more efficiently than ordinary unmodified pigs that was developed at the University of Guelph. The benefits of the Enviropig, if commercialized, include reduced feed cost and reduced phosphorus pollution as compared to the raising of ordinary pigs. Enviropigs create the enzyme phytase in their salivary glands. When cereal grains are consumed, the phytase mixes with...
