Research Article Volume 3 Issue 1
Abstract: The importance of this theme is demonstrated by the
fact promote the use of parts of the food with the potential
nutritional value that are usually not used and can add
value to waste, as the passion fruit peel, and several preventive
health campaigns have demonstrated the need to
supply the insufficient intake of dietary fiber, motivating
the industry to develop foods enriched with fiber, adding
nutritional value to their products, as well as contribute
to the promotion of population health
SHORT COMMUNICATION Volume 2 Issue 1
Abstract: Owing to the increasing demand for the use of agricultural products, along with new and more restrictive policies regarding the application of fertilizers, the search for alternative ways to increase crop production is necessary. The ecosystem of the crops in a more sustainable is to be highly taken into consideration by this green biotechnology. One of the best alternatives is the employment of biofertilizers, which is an example of green biotechnology.

Abstract: A fast and easy electrochemical method for nitrate determination in leafy vegetables was developed. It is a much cheaper method compared to the HPLC method or chemiluminescence detection, the most sensitive method in determination of nitrate, which requires expensive instrumentation.
Research Article Volume 2 Issue 1
Abstract: Based on the "Second National Report on Biochemical Indicators of Diet and Nutrition in the US Population" from CDC in 2012, 10.5% of the population over 1-year-old were vitamin B6 deficient (plasma pyridoxal 5'-phosphate < 20 nM). We hypothesize that gender, age, food preparation, and disease conditions could affect the intake and/or the availability of vitamin B6.
Abstract: To compare the circulation levels of hormones related with bone metabolism in a cohort of patients with chronic kidney disease in stage 3-5 who were treated by ergocalciferol (VitD2) or calcitriol (aVitD3). The blood levels of bone metabolism hormones change significantly after vitamin D agents' therapy. Ergocalciferol supplementation treatment can increase blood levels of 25(OH) D and BMP-7 much more than calcitriol. Improving 25(OH) D insufficiency can suppress the endocrine of FGF-23.
Abstract: The United Nations Decade of Action on Nutrition has focused on elimination of malnutrition in all its forms. To achieve this goal, countries are focusing on nutrition specific and sensitive programs. This paper reviews studies in four thematic areas - malnutrition, micronutrient supplementation.
Review Article Volume 2 Issue 1
Abstract: The United Nations Decade of Action on Nutrition has focused on elimination of malnutrition in all its forms. To achieve this goal, countries are focusing on nutrition specific and sensitive programs. This paper reviews studies in three thematic areas - agriculture, social safety net and WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) - to assess the effects of nutrition sensitive strategies combined with a social and behavioral change communication component on diet and nutritional status.
Protocol Paper Volume 1 Issue 1
Abstract: The need to address the increasing obesity rates of children living in the United Kingdom has become a Government priority. It has been recognized that a public health level approach as opposed to an individual approach is potentially one way forward.
Case Study Volume 1 Issue 1
Abstract: Cases of Prosthetic Hip-Associated Cobalt Toxicity (PHACT) are becoming more prevalent in medical literature. Conditions associated with cobalt toxicity include cardiac issues, thyroid dysfunction, and neurological afflictions.
Original Research Volume 1 Issue 1
Abstract: Malnutrition is associated with negative health consequences in the cancer population, making it imperative for an efficient interdisciplinary approach to conduct nutritional screening using an appropriate instrument.
Case Report Volume 1 Issue 1
Abstract: Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity (NCGS) is becoming more clearly defined and accepted in the medical literature. Indirect evidence suggests that NCGS is more common than Celiac Disease.
