Soy flavor and its improvement

Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition
G MacLeod, J Ames


A highly characteristic and often undesirable flavor associated with soy protein materials largely explains the slower-than-expected progress over recent years in the development of high-protein foods based on soya. Apart from the inherent flavor of the bean, different flavors are produced on processing and on storage. Major problems are the absence of an attractive positive flavor, the presence of off-flavors of several kinds, the tenacious binding of such flavors to the soy protein molecules, and the difficulties of removing and/or masking these unacceptable qualities. This review provides a reappraisal of current literature evidence relating to each of these aspects and summarizes published patents of processes for soy flavor improvement.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.
