In order to develop a model on the quality and nutrition label of Korean fruit plum, we first examined the quality and nutritional characteristics of Korean Plum, ChooHee. The contents of moisture, crude protein, crude fat, crude fiber, crude ash and N-free extinct were 92% 0.74% 0.64% 1.65%, 0.32% 4.29% respectively. Thus the total calorie of the sample was 32 kcal/100 g. The content of sugar, acidity and Vitamin C were
respectively. The principle minerals were S, K, Ca, Na, and Mg. Major free sugars were fructose, glucose and sucrose and major organic acid were succinic acid, malic acid and citric acid. The difference of contents of total phenols between peel and flesh pare were considerable. The total phenolic contents of whole fruit were
. On the above results, the quality and nutrition label of Korean plum were developed in the first time. We expect that this study on labeling could play an important role to the quality control and marketing of Korean agricultural products.

This study was to investigate the effect of chitosan-ascorbate (CA) prepared with different molecular weight (223, 746, 1110 and 2025 kDa) on the fermentation and quality of mul-kimchi, and also, the effect of the mul-kimchi juice fermented with 0.1% chitosan-ascorbate prepared with 2025 kDa chitosan (CA2025) on the serum lipids of rae fed with high cholesterol diet (HC). The mul-kimchi fermented in 0.1% CA2025 has lower turbidity, longer shelf-life, higher glucosamine content and SOD activity than those of control and the other treatments. In the animal experiment the HC-CA2025 and HC-2CA2025 groups which were administered 0.5 mL per 100 g body weight of mul-kimchi juice fermented with 0.1% CA2025 and administered the same volume of the juice concentrated 112 per nay fed for 5 week, respectively. The average body weight of the HC-CA2025 and HC-2CA2025 group was lower 6.9% and 8.4% than that of HC control group respectively. Total serum cholesterol contents of these groups were 88.33 and 85.00 mg/uL, which were 17.45% and 20.56% lower than HC control group respectively. While, HDL-cholesterol content of these groups were 7% and 23%, higher the LDL-cholesterol content were 13% and 26% lower than those of HC control group respectively. And also, though the atherogenic index, AST and ALT activities were not reached to normal control group, the values were remarkably lower than those of HC control group. This study indicates the possibility of utility for kimchi industry by adding chitosan-ascorbate, especially CA2025 showing not only quality enhancing and shelf-life prolongation but also improving serum lipids and atherogenic index in rats fed with high cholesterol diet.

Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 13, issue 6, 2006, Pages 774~782
This study investigated the hepatoprotective effects of an ethanol extract of lotus root (LRE) on alcohol-induced liver damage in rat. Sprague-Dawley rae weighing
, were divided into 6 groups: basal diet group (BD), alcohol (35% 10 mL/kg/day) teated stoup (ET), LRE 200 mg/kg/day teated group (BD-LREL). LRE 400 mg/kg/day treated group (BD-LREH), LRE 200 mg/kg/day and alcohol treated group (ET-LREL), and LRE 400 3mg/kg/day and alcohol teated group (ET-LREH). After the administration, rats were sacrificed to get serum and liver to analyze antioxidant enzyme activity, glutathione and lipid peroxide contents. The body weight gain and feed efficiency ratio were decreased by alcohol administration, however, were gradually increased to a little lower level than the basal diet group by the combined administration of alcohol and LRE. The serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT), asparate aminotransferase (AST) and alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activities that were elevated by alcohol were significantly decreased by LRE administration. It was also observed that thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) content, xanthine oxidase (XO), superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase and glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) activities in liver that were increased by alcohol, were markedly decreased in the combined alcohol and LRE administered groups as compared with the alcohol administrated group. These effect of LRE within the alcohol groups were in a dose-dependent manner. The glutathione (GSH) content in liver was decreased by alcohol administration, however, increased after administering LRE. Teken together, these result suggest that ethanol extract of lotus root may have a possible protective effect on liver function in hepatotoxicity-induced rat by alcohol administration.

Lee, Jung-Suck ; Song, Kyung-Bin ;
Korean Journal of Food Preservation, volume 13, issue 6, 2006, Pages 803~807
Browning of commercial Doenjang product during storage and marketing is a main concern in the industry. There have been many studies on the improvement on the quality of Doenjang during storage. In this study, phosphate and gas absorber treatment was introduced in manufacturing of Doenjang to improve the color of commercial Doenjang during storage. Doenjang treated with Phosphate and 9as absorber (sample C). Doenjang teated with Phosphate only (sample B), and the control (sample A) were prepared and their physicochemical and sensory properties were determined during storage at
for 28 days. Sample C was the best in terms of color as well as sensory evaluation resulting in preventing browning of Doenjang during storage. These result suggest that commercial production of Doenjang should introduce phosphate and gas absorber treatment to improve the quality of Doenjang, and to prevent undesirable browning reaction during storage and marketing.
