  1. Determination of brilliant blue FCF in the presence and absence of erythrosine and quinoline yellow food colours by cathodic stripping volta...

    Food Additives & Contaminants 19(9):803 (2002) PMID 12396391

    A study of the voltammetric behaviour of the food colours brilliant blue FCF (C.I. 42090), erythrosine (C.I. 45430) and quinoline yellow (C.I. 47005) in the pH range 2-10 have been carried out by cathodic#10; stripping voltammetry. At pH 4.5 (acetate buffer) with an accumulation potential of 0 V and...
  2. The immunomodulatory compound 2-acetyl-4-tetrahydroxybutyl imidazole causes sequestration of lymphocytes in non-lymphoid tissues.

    Immunology and Cell Biology 75(5):497 (1997) PMID 9429899

    We investigated the whereabouts of cells lost from the blood and the spleen during THI treatment Homing studies following is injection of fluorescently labelled splenocytes into THI-pretreated recipients showed that THI increased labelled cells in the liver, lungs and kidneys of THI-treated mice. Fu...
  3. Bixin and norbixin in human plasma: determination and study of the absorption of a single dose of Annatto food color.

    Analyst (Cambridge UK) 122(9):977 (1997) PMID 9374027

    A procedure was developed for the detection and determination of bixin and norbixin in human plasma by reversed-phase HPLC with a sensitivity limit of 5 micrograms l-1. A group of seven volunteers ingested a single dose of 1 ml of a commercial Annatto Food Color (16 mg of cis-bixin in soybean oil)....
  4. Controversy in using blue dye in enteral tube feeding as a method of detecting pulmonary aspiration.

    Critical Care Nurse 22(5):84 (2002) PMID 12382623

  5. [Estimated production by the official inspection of coal-tar dyes (including dye aluminum lakes) in fiscal year 1998].

    Kokuritsu Iyakuhin Shokuhin Eisei Kenkyujo hoko... (117):185 (1999) PMID 10939855

    There were 284 official inspections of coal-tar and their lakes in fiscal year 1998, and 283 of the lots qualified, one of the 40 samples of Food Yellow No. 5 was rejected. The quality of coal-tar dyes that passed inspection in Japan in fiscal year 1998 reached 150.3 tons. Coal-tar dye production is...
  6. [Actual problems of control in using dyes for foodstuff production in the Russian Federation].

    Voprosy pitaniya 76(3):68 (2007) PMID 17674524

    The brief information on existing official methods of research of food dyes in food stuffs in the various countries are given. The special attention is given to a urgency of development of methods of extraction of food dyes from the complex foodstuff containing carbohydrates. In article are given th...
  7. Mutagenicity of commercial Monascus fermentation products and the role of citrinin contamination.

    Mutation Research/Fundamental and Molecular Mec... 444(1):7 (1999) PMID 10477335

    Pigments produced as secondary metabolites by various isolates of moulds belonging to the genus Monascus have been used traditionally as colorants in Oriental food. Modern food industry has rediscovered these moulds as promising source for natural colorants. However, recent studies evidence that one...
  8. Maceration enzymes and mannoproteins: a possible strategy to increase colloidal stability and color extraction in red wines.

    Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry 55(12):4854 (2007) PMID 17497793

    Different strategies were adopted to achieve increases in color stability in Tempranillo wines: (i) addition of maceration enzymes directly to the must, (ii) addition of commercial mannoproteins to the must, and (iii) inoculation of must with yeast overexpressed of mannoproteins. The addition of enz...
  9. Flavor-evaluative conditioning is unaffected by contingency knowledge during training with color-flavor compounds.

    Learning & Behavior 35(1):36 (2007) PMID 17557389

  10. Anaphylaxis to annatto dye: a case report.

    Annals of allergy 66(2):129 (1991) PMID 1994783

    We present a patient who developed urticaria, angioedema, and severe hypotension within 20 minutes following ingestion of milk and Fiber One cereal, which contained annatto dye. Subsequent skin tests to milk, wheat, and corn were negative. The patient had a strong positive skin test to annatto dye,...
