  • Abstract
    As an important national strategy, the security of cereal and oil plays a key role in maintaining social stability, promoting the rural revitalization strategy and keeping a sustained, rapid and sound development of national economy. With rapid increase of global population and continous development of food industry, the more diversified, healthy and low-carbon cereal and oil products have been preferred by consumers. However, in China, the development of cereal and oil industries is constrained by many problems, including limited cereal and oil processing resources, poor green processing technology, lack of moderate processing means, unclear mechanism of nutritional factors, and difficulty in hazard risk control. With the development of life science, information technology and materials technology, future food science and technology of cereal and oil based on food omics, synthetic biology, nutrition and materials science are expected to meet the above challenges from the technical level. This paper outlined the status and role of cereal and oil food industries in the national economy, and summarizedthe development trend and market conditions of cereal and oil industries. In China, the technical challenges faced by cereal and oil in China, grain, oil and food science and technology were also introduced, and the future development trend of grain, oil and food science and technology will also be prospected, including moderate oil processing, green grain production, intelligent safety control, and precise nutrition supply.

    Abstract
    Oil is a significant source of fatty acids and various trace functional components, and plays a vital role in regulating human health. The macro- and micro-components in oils are closely related to nutritional health. This paper introduces the future development goals and strategies of healthy oils from two aspects of precise nutrition and moderate processing. Firstly, precise nutrition based on life cycle and physiological state is a priority research area of lipid science. On the other hand, moderate processing will retain nutrients such as vitamin E, phytosterols, and squalene to a greater extent, and avoid the formation of risk factors such as trans fatty acids, 3-chloropropanol esters, and glycidyl esters. Moderate processing not only ensures the safety of oil, but also reduces the loss of healthy and beneficial fat concomitants, which is the development direction of oil engineering research. Therefore, under the dual demands of nutrition and safety, accurate nutrition and moderate processing of oils will help the implementation of "Healthy China" and "Double- Carbon" strategies. Future healthy oils will not only provide basic nutrition and flavor, but also give specific health functions to people with different life cycles, such as infants, children, adolescents, adults and the elderly, and maintain the homeostasis of people with different physiological states including pregnant and lactating women.

    Abstract
    The three macronutrients of lipid, protein and carbohydrate are closely related to human health, and their supply is basically sufficient. However, with the increasing number of patients suffered from hyperlipidemia, obesity, etc., as well as the deepening of the aging process, traditional nutrients can not fulfill the nutritional needs of these people anymore. Therefore, nutritional, processing and organoleptic properties of these three major nutrients need to be enhanced by the deep-processing. Nowadays, the recombinant protein and carbohydrate industries have made great progress in China, but the recombinant lipid industry is just in its infancy. Hence, this paper briefly introduced the status, development opportunities and challenges of domestic structure lipid industry,and expounded the underlying efficacy mechanisms of several main structure lipids. The latest research progress on the health effects and preparation technology of structure lipid were also presented. In addition, in view of the existing problems, future development advices are proposed from the perspectives of theoretical breakthrough, technological innovation, and industrial upgrading, aiming to provide valuable references for the development of domestic structure industry.

    Abstract
    In recent years, β-glucan has been widely researched in various related fields due to its significant physiological activity and health characteristics. β-glucan exists in highland barley, barley, oats, and microorganisms such as yeast, bacteria fungi and other natural plants, and is a kind of renewable polysaccharide with high nutritional values. Different physical properties due to its extensive sources also affect the development and application of β-glucan in various bioactive functional fields. We have reviewed different sources of β-glucan and its structure-activity relationship, and summarized its research status in digestive system, nervous system, immune system and other aspects, indicating that β-glucan has special physiological activities such as regulating glucose and lipid metabolism disorders, improving immunity and brain function, regulating intestinal microenvironment. It can be used as a dietary supplement and functional factor to intervene and regulate body health, and also has broad application value and prospects in the field of health product research and development. This review will provide theoretical reference and scientific basis for the further development and utilization of β-glucan.
  • Abstract
    Benzoxazolinones (BXs) are a group of natural compounds with biological activity. In recent years, benzoxazolinones have been identified in cereal grains and bakery foods. The most common BXs are 6-methoxy-benzoxazolin-2-one (MBOA) and 2-benzoxazolin-2-one (BOA). In this study, the contents of MBOA and BOA in 13varieties of wheat harvested in Henan Province were analyzed by LC-MS technology. Meanwhile, the inhibitory effects of MBOA and BOA on α-glucosidase and α-amylase were evaluated. The results showed that the contents of MBOA and BOA in wheat varied from 4.30 to 5.02 ng/g and 1.62 to 7.98 ng/g respectively. Interestingly, the contents of MBOA and BOA in whole wheat flour increased significantly after hot drying and germination by 1.5~2.0 and 500~1 000 times, respectively. In the aspect of hypoglycemic activity, MBOA and BOA showed reversible competitive inhibition on α-glucosidase and α-amylase. The IC50 of MBOA and BOA to α-glucosidase were 13.73 and 73.9 mg/mL, the IC50 to α-amylase were 64.98 and 17.68 mg/mL. These results revealed that BXs have the potential contribution to the hypoglycemic activity associated with whole wheat consumption. Food processing technologies such as germination can be used to enhance the concentration of BXs in the cereal food products that allow the intake of higher amounts of BXs. This study provides a new theoretical basis for the research on the health effects of whole wheat and its processed products.

    Abstract
    With the popularization of the concepts of whole grain health cognition and scientific diet, consumers are paying more and more attention to different forms of whole grain food. Whole grain drink is one of the important products made from whole grain, and the physical stability of whole grain drink is a major challenge in the process of research and development. Since whole grain drink is a thermodynamically unstable system of multiphase turbidite liquid with water as the continuous phase and starch, dietary fiber, protein as the dispersed phase, the separation speed of whole grain drink is fast, which seriously affected the acceptability of consumers. Based on literature review, the multiscale characterization methods of macroscopic, mesoscopic, microscopic and nano-scale for the stability of whole grain drink and characterization methods of the characteristic chemical components were summarized. This paper summarized the stability of whole grain drink characterized with multiscale methods, which could provide methodological guidance for the development of whole grain drink and facilitate the rapid development of whole grain foods.

    Abstract
    Steamed bread is one of the traditional Chinese staple foods. With the increasing in the proportion of mechanized production and market-oriented sales of steamed bread, the steamed bread industry has been developing rapidly. Under the production conditions of industrial steamed bread, the characteristics of wheat varieties and their corresponding flour suitability for making steamed bread, especially the stability of flour, could significantly affect the product quality, consumption experience and economic benefits of industrialized steamed bread. In this study, the physical and chemical properties of flours from wheat varieties with larger planting area and stronger representatives in southwest Henan were analyzed for the suitability of steamed bread, and the relationships between flour and steamed bread quality properties were also studied. The results showed that the wet gluten content of wheat flour in southwest Henan was high, but the gluten index needed to be improved. The proportion of strong-gluten wheat variety also needed to be improved. The values of flour color a* b *, gluten index, the dough softening by Farinograph, the area by Extensograph and the extensibility (L) by Alveograph are important reference indicators for evaluating the quality of flour for steamed bread. The wheat varieties of Zhengmai 119, Pingmai 998, Shaanxi Road 198, Zhengmai 1342, and Zhengmai 1860 are more suitable for making steamed breads.

    GAN Qian-yun, SUN Xue-qian, SONG Ge, PENG Wen-ting, XU Mei-hong, QI Wen-tao*

    2023,31(1):100-108, DOI:

    Abstract
    Fructose was popularly used in diet due to its high sweetness and low impact on blood sugar levels. High fructose diets are common in Western countries. With economic development, the per capita fructose intake in China has been increasing year by year, and the relationship between fructose and health has become a research hotspot. The absorption and metabolism of fructose in vivo can activate multiple signaling pathways including PI3K/Akt, NF- κ B, JAK-STAT, AMPK, MAPK and toll like receptors etc., which could down or up regulate the level of downstream signaling molecules, and cause the occurrence of metabolic syndrome such as obesity and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis. The absorption and metabolism molecular signal pathways involved in fructose induced metabolic syndrome were summarized and reviewed in this paper, which could provide reference for the rational consumption and further research of biological effects of fructose.

    Abstract
    The hyperspectral imaging technology has the feature of “image and spectrum in one”, which brings together the features of traditional imaging and spectroscopic techniques, and both image information and spectral information of the agricultural products could be obtained. Therefore, this technology can not only detect the external characteristics of objects by imaging technology, but also obtain the internal quality and food safety information of agricultural products by the spectral technology, including variety classification, physical and chemical index determination, fungal infection detection and pesticide residue detection, etc. Compared with traditional detection methods, hyperspectral imaging has been applied in the field of non-destructive testing of agricultural products due to its simple pretreatment, non-pollution and non- destructive characteristics in the detection process. This review started from the theoretical basis of hyperspectral imaging, and summarized its image acquisition and analysis methods, followed by expounding the research progress of hyperspectral imaging technology in the field of nondestructive testing of agricultural products in the past five years. This review could provide information on the classification and nutritional quality of agricultural products and food safety assessment methods to provide reference.
  • Abstract
    By contrasting the main indexes of maize quality standards in China, the United States, Australia and Canada, which are the representative countries in APEC and combined with the actual test results of samples analysis, it is expected to provide a reference for the interconnection of international maize trade standards. The maize quality standards of these four countries all take the unit weight, impurities and imperfect grains (damaged grains) as the main indicators of maize grading. In terms of quota setting, the characteristics of domestic maize circulation are fully considered, and the indicator systems have their own distinctive characteristics based on their own corn production, storage and trade practices. The indicator systems have their own distinctive characteristics, including the definition of maize unit weight, imperfect grains, impurities and other indicators, measuring instruments, measuring methods and quality requirements. When the same samples were tested and judged by different standards, the quality results and quality grades were different, leading to the results being lack of comparability. It is suggested that strengthen communication and coordination among international peers, unify terms and definitions, testing instruments, testing methods should be included to improve trade efficiency, reduce trade costs and promote trade facilitation of maize in the international maize trade and circulation.
  • Abstract
    In view of the low efficiency and low recognition accuracy of sorghum unsound kerneld etection in wine-making enterprises at the present stage, the sorghum unsound kernel detection instrument with image recognition, which was combined with the existing cereal unsound kernel detection instruments in the market, was developed. A series of research was focus on the image collection, key hardware, machine vision and deep learning. In this study, single feature analysis technology, machine-learning based image classification technology, deep-learning based image classification technology and fine-grained image classification technology were used to classify and identify sorghum images, respectively. By contrast, tensorrt deployment technology was used to deploy fine-grained image classification network into the device. The results showed that the recognition accuracy of the developed rapid sorghum imperfect grain detector was less than 1% of the average error of manual detection. The detection time of 50 g sorghum sample was controlled within 5 minutes. Compared with the traditional manual detection, the detection time was greatly shortened, and the subjective deviation of manual detection was also avoided. It is of great significance for the detection and identification of sorghum imperfection rate in wine-making enterprises.

  • Abstract
    The uncertainty in determination of nickel in soy milk powder by ultra-wave digestion- inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry was evaluated and optimized. According to JJF1059.1—2012 Evaluation and expression of uncertainty in measurement and CNAS—GL006: 2019 Guidance on quantifying uncertainty in chemical analysis, the mathematical model of uncertainty evaluation was built. The main sources of uncertainty were analyzed and their uncertainty components were evaluated. Then the relative standard uncertainty and the expanded uncertainty were computed. Finally, the influence of different sources was analyzed and the possible optimization methods for reducing the uncertainty were proposed. When the coverage probability was 95% (i.e., the coverage factor was k=2), the expanded uncertainty of nickel is 0.222 mg/kg, which indicates the determination result of nickel in soy milk powder was (3.825±0.222) mg/kg. The relative uncertainty was reduced from 0.029 0 to 0.023 8 by the optimization methods. Configuration of standard working solution and fitting of standard curve were the main sources of the uncertainty in determination of nickel in soy milk powder by ultra-wave digestion-inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry, and the optimization could reduce the determination uncertainty significantly.
  • Abstract
    Hainanmycin sodium is a new type of monobasic acid polyether antibiotics, which has been widely used in chicken, cattle and sheep and other animal feeds, and it is mainly used to prevent coccidiosis and regulate growth metabolism. The color reaction between hainanmycin and derivative can be detected by UV spectrophotometry. The results showed that the derivatives of p-dimethylaminobenzaldehyde and vanillin had the maximum UV absorption at 595 nm and 590 nm, respectively, and hainanmycin had the lowest detection limit after vanillin derivatization. When the derivative agent was composed of 4% vanillin (g/100 mL), 20% hydrochloric acid and 80% anhydrous ethanol, the derivative reaction with hainanmycin solution was carried out at 90 ℃ for 5 min at the volume ratio of 4∶6 (V∶V), and the color effect was the best after derivatization. Hainanmycin showed a linear relationship with the absorbance in the concentration range of 5~50 μg / mL, and the R2 (Coefficient of determination) was 0.993. This method could quantify the hainanmycin content in the premix and feed. The limit of quantification was 4.8 mg/kg in feed, and the recoveries of hainanmycin in feed and premix were 74.5%~93.8% and 83.2%~101.3%, respectively. It can be used as an effective method for the detection of hainanmycin in feed and premix.

    Abstract
    A rapid identification method of microcrystalline cellulose adulteration by near infrared spectroscopy was studied. Based on the near-infrared spectrum data of microcrystalline cellulose samples and adulterants (soluble starch, wheat flour), the material spectrum database and the adulterant spectrum database were created respectively, and the microcrystalline cellulose classification and the adulterant models were also established. A rapid identification method for microcrystalline cellulose adulteration was established by using the Adulterant Screen algorithm technology for calculation and analysis. The minimum detected content of single component adulteration of microcrystalline fiber powder was 2% soluble starch and 1% wheat flour, and the accurate recognition rate was 100%. When the adulteration of two components (soluble starch + wheat flour) was two to ten times of the detection limit concentration of one component, the accurate recognition rate was 100%. The accurate recognition rate of unknown sample microcrystalline cellulose above the detection limit is 100%. The method is simple, rapid and reliable, and can quickly identify adulteration of microcrystalline cellulose samples. It can be effectively applied to the adulteration detection and identification of daily microcrystalline cellulose samples, which could provide technical support for the customs to crack down on tax evasion and evasion.

    Abstract
    Mechanical ventilation is an important way to maintain the temperature and moisture of grain piles in the warehouse within the safe storage range, which is closely related to grain storage safety and the benefits of storage enterprises. In order to solve the disadvantages of the slow advancing speed of the inlet air in the vertical direction of the traditional Gui-shaped ventilation network, this paper proposed a new ventilation network with Gui-shaped and vertical riser to shorten the travel path and time of air or fumigation gas in the grain pile. The new ventilation network effects through numerical simulation were simulated and predicted to verify its feasibility. The results showed that the cooling rate and uniformity of this ventilation network were good, and the flow resistance of the inlet air in the vertical direction was significantly reduced. The cold front at the position of the riser could pass through the grain surface with a height of 5.5 m on the second day of ventilation, and the ventilation energy consumption could be reduced by about 16% compared with the traditional Gui-shaped ventilation network under the same conditions. The results could provide theory basis for the selection of optimal ventilation network of room type warehouse.
