    Effect of Pre-Treatments and Drying Methods on the Chemical Quality and Microbial Density of Wild Edible Oyster Mushroom

    Ibrahim TA*, Adaramola-Ajibola KM, Adesuyi AT, Olanrewaju SO and Akinro EB

    This study was carried out to evaluate the effect of pretreatments and drying methods on the chemical quality and microbial density of wild edible oyster mushroom. The mushroom samples were pretreated by steeping in 0.5% citric and sodium metabisulphite at room temperature for 10 minutes before being subjected to sun and cabinet drying until a constant weight was reached.

    Effect of drying methods on the physicochemical properties and Fatty Acid composition of Moringa Seeds Oil

    Omosuli SV, Oloye DA and Ibrahim TA*

    Effect of drying methods (sun-drying and cabinet oven drying) on the physicochemical properties and fatty acid composition of oils extracted from moringa seeds was investigated. Oil from the seeds was extracted using solvent (hexane) after drying. Drying increased the yield from 30.30-33.11%.

    Changes in Serum Markers of Atherogenesis and Hematological Profile after the consumption of Quail eggs

    Ekpenyong CE*, Patrick ES and Akpan KS

    Previous studies suggest that diets with more eggs than is recommended may be used as part of a healthy diet in some countries. However, whether quail egg diets could form part of such diet has not been explored. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the effect of quail egg consumption on serum markers of atherogenesis and hematological parameters in healthy volunteers. Thirty adult subjects participated in this study after ascertaining their baseline health status.
