Hypolipidemic and antioxidant potency of heat processed turmeric and red pepper in experimental rats

  The hypocholesterolemic and antioxidant potency of both raw and pressure-cooked turmeric and red pepper were evaluated in experimental rats rendered hypercholesterolemic by feeding 0.5% cholesterol enriched diet and maintained for 8 weeks on 5% spice diet.

Detection of dilution of milk with the help of glass transition temperature by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC)

  Glass transition temperature of pure milk, milk diluted with water, and pure milk in which sugars like glucose, fructose and sucrose were investigated by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The glass transition temperature Tg of pure milk (containing 89.2 kg water and 10.8 kg total solids per 100 kg milk) varied between -114 to -118oC. Effect of change in composition of the milk varying the amounts...
