To fully understand the sugar-sweetened beverage (SSB) consumption status among Chinese young children and to explore its association with weight gain.In this cross-sectional study, data on sociodemographic characteristics, SSB intake and weight/height were collected by means of face-to-face interviews. The intake of SSB among young Chinese children in relation to their age, different characteristics and types of SSB consumed is described, and the association between SSB intake and BMI-for-age Z-score and overweight is explored.Seven large cities and two villages in China.Nine hundred and forty-six healthy children, aged 3-7 years.The proportion of SSB intake among Chinese young children was 805 %; 34 % were daily consumers, 340 % (314 %) consumed at least once per week (month). The per capita and per consumer SSB intake was 631 9 (sd 1008) and 784 (sd 1069) ml/d. Children from rural areas consumed twice, or even triple, the amount of SSB as those from urban areas (P<0001) and great disparities existed between the types of SSB consumed by urban and rural children. An association was found between increased SSB intake and higher BMI-for-age Z-score (P<005) after adjusting for potential confounders; there was also an association between SSB intake and increased risk of being overweight or obese.The consumption status of SSB in Chinese young children is of concern. There was a positive association between SSB intake and weight gain. Measures should be taken to improve the present situation of SSB consumption among Chinese young children.

Childhood dyslipidemia is a critical factor of lifelong health. Therefore, screening and controlling dyslipidemia from childhood is a practical healthy strategy. However, few studies have examined the performance of anthropometric predictors of dyslipidemia in Chinese children, let alone the potential gender and urban-rural disparity. Thus, we evaluated anthropometric indices predicting dyslipidemia by genders and living areas in Chinese children.Data were from a health and nutrition survey conducted in seven urban areas and two rural areas in China between 2011 and 2012. The serum lipid levels of the participants were compared between genders and living areas. The body mass index z-score (BMI z-score), waist-hip ratio (WHR), waist-height ratio (WHtR), and mid-upper arm height ratio (MaHtR) were used as predictors. The receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis was performed to investigate the ability of anthropometric indices predicting dyslipidemia.A total of 773 participants (average age = 9.3 1.7 y) were included. The prevalence of dyslipidemia was 10.9%. Anthropometric indices were all significantly related to blood lipid profiles in boys after adjustment for age. The areas under the ROC curves (ACUs) were significantly larger than 0.5 in boys (ranged between 0.66-0.73), and were larger in rural boys (ranged between 0.68 and 0.94). MaHtR and WHR were associated with the highest specificity (93.8%) and highest sensitivity (100%), respectively.Using anthropometric indices, screening for dyslipidemia may be more appropriate in boys than in girls in China, especially in rural boys. The BMI z-score, WHR, WHtR, and MaHtR were all significantly associated with dyslipidemia in boys; using WHR and MaHtR as indicators achieved the highest sensitivity and specificity, respectively.

Streptococcus thermophilus MN-BM-A01 (ST MN-BM-A01) (CGMCC No. 11383) was a strain isolated from Yogurt Block in Gansu, China. The yogurt fermented with this strain has good flavor, acidity, and viscosity. Moreover, ST MN-BM-A01 could produce a high level of EPS which can confer the yogurt with improved rheological properties. We reported the complete genome sequence of ST MN-BM-A01 that contains 1,876,516bp encoding 1704 coding sequences (CDSs), 67 tRNA genes and 6 rRNA operons. The genomic sequence indicated that this strain included a 35.3-kb gene cluster involved in EPS biosynthesis.

Physical activity and sedentary behavior are common factors influencing cardiovascular health. However, how school and leisure-time activity/sedentary behavior are associated with physical fitness and blood lipid levels in primary school children in consideration of gender disparity remains unclear.Data was obtained from a health and nutrition survey on primary school children from nine areas in China. The association between physical activities/sedentary behaviors (school and leisure-time physical activity levels, screen time, and other sedentary behaviors) and anthropometric measurements/prevalence of dyslipidemia were examined by multilevel analysis (the individual level, class level, grade level, and investigation area level) adjusted for age, energy intake and family income.A total of 770 participants (average age=9.41.7years) were included. Prevalence of dyslipidemia was 10.9%. Prevalence of dyslipidemia was associated with screen time in boys [OR=3.04, 95% CI (1.24-7.45)] and inversely associated with leisure-time physical activity in boys [OR=2.22, 95% CI (1.08-4.56)] and school-time activity in girls [OR=5.34, 95% CI (1.18-24.16)].Physical activity-but not sedentary behavior-was significantly associated with dyslipidemia in both genders. Increasing leisure-time physical activity for boys and school-time physical activity for girls may be critical.

The objective of the present study was to determine the effects of Lactobacillus helveticus on the quality of Gouda cheese. Gouda cheese manufactured with and without the addition of adjunct cultures of Lactobacillus helveticus were compared by determining the changes of composition, maturing rate, protein degradation and texture during ripening. Sensory evaluation of Gouda cheese were carried out by determining level of free amino acid and taste test. The result showed that there were no significant difference of the level of protein, fat, moisture, salt and ash between two kinds Gouda cheese in ripening period of 120 days. But the rate of ripening, the number of strips of SDS-PAGE electrophoresis and the content of glutamic acid of the cheese made with Lb. helveticus were significant higher than the cheese without additional Lb. helveticus after ripening for 30 days. The results suggest that Lactobacillus helveticus showed a significant effect on accelerating ripening process and improving sensory quality of Gouda cheese. © 2016, Chinese Institute of Food Science and Technology.

In Inner Mongolia, China, the chemical composition of 66 breast milk samples at three lactation stages was analysed. Except for total nitrogen content, the contents of total solid, fat, NPN, lactose and ash were not significantly different between colostral, transitional and mature milk. Fatty acids did not vary over the three lactation stages, while unsaturated fatty acids accounted for 59.95-63.22% of the total fatty acids. Relatively low contents of vitamins were in the milk because the volunteer mothers did not take any vitamin supplementation over the entire lactation period. Besides sodium and phosphate, the concentrations of most minerals in the breast milk remained fairly constant across the three lactation stages. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

Currently, research on toxic and hazardous substance in food immunological detection methods focused on conventional enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, especially relatively few studies Array Detection of toxic foods for electrochemical immunoassay method of harmful substances. The work to build a variety of stable performance, high selectivity and sensitivity of electrochemical immunosensor and applied to the detection of Sudan, clenbuterol and chloramphenicol and other foods toxic and hazardous materials. And for the sample of the large number of food safety testing, testing and testing required to have many kinds of characteristics such as age, photo-electrochemical immune sensor array was prepared and applied to veterinary drug residues in food in a fast, high-throughput analysis. © Maxwell Scientific Organization, 2015.
