Researchers at The Ohio State University believe fructose-asparagine – made of a sugar and amino acid stuck together – could be important in making salmonella less potent and destructive – according to Meatingplace. This nutrient is salmonella’s sole food source in an inflamed intestine – and lead study author Brian Ahmer says blocking activation of one of five genes that transport the nutrient to salmonella cells could help fight infection. SHARE SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Researchers Find Key to Destroying Salmonella’s Effectiveness For most bacteria – getting rid of one nutrient acquisition system wouldn’t matter – but for salmonella – getting rid of this nutrient is bad news. Without it – the bacteria becomes 1,000-times less effective as sustaining disease.

Email Print Facebook NewsThe cereal offendersBy admin – May 21, 2009 624 Twitter Linkedin WhatsApp It’s pitched as the most important meal of the day, but with only eight per cent of cereals getting a green light for healthy sugar levels, many of us are waking up to poor nutrition as the results of a new report have shown. Adults and children have a hard job finding a healthy start to the day, as cereal companies continue to add large amounts of sugar to their top brands. The report showed that 31 cereals out of the 100 examined contained more than four teaspoons of sugar per recommended serving and only one of the 28 cereals specifically marketed to children was found not to be high in sugar (but was still high in salt).Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A UK brand of chocolate crackles topped the sweet mountain with more sugar per serving than a Cadbury’s Chocolate Flake, followed closely by Kellogg’s Coco Pops Moons and Stars, Frosties and Ricicles which were over a third (37 per cent) pure sugar.Many brands thought of as healthy, such as Kellogg’s All Bran, Bran Flakes and Special K did little to bowl over the researchers. Starting the day with Special K, for example, would be almost the sugar equivalent to waking up to a bowl containing a portion of Tesco’s Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake Ice Cream.Entitled, “Going Against the Grain”, the report analysed 100 leading cereals. Although sugar levels remained high, positive changes could be seen with reductions in salt content. Despite this, 100g of Tesco Special Flakes was still found to contain the same amount of salt as 100g of Walkers Ready Salted crisps.The report went on to highlight that other issues included confusing labelling, and questionable health and nutrition claims allowing some companies to promote a wholesome image for their brand, while failing to emphasise the high sugar or salt contentSue Davies. a senior figure at Which?, said; “Breakfast is important, and some cereals deserve their healthy image, but most simply don’t. It’s especially shocking that almost all those targeted at children are less healthy. With such little choice, it’s a daily struggle for consumers.“Cereal manufacturers need to wake up to the fact that people want to eat healthily and provide them with the means to do so by reducing sugar and salt levels and making labelling clearer. With over a billion pounds spent on cereals every year, it’s time they rose to the occasion. ”In January 2009, the researchers bought 100 cereals from the main supermarkets. Products were chosen based on their current market share. They excluded hot cereals and mueslis from the research because, despite growth in sales in recent years, they remain a small percentage of the market overall. They looked at the amount of fat, saturates, sugar and salt that the 100 cereals contained and applied industry standards of labelling where possible.

Guided-missile frigate USS Thach (FFG 43) returned to her homeport of San Diego, Calif., after six months in Central and South America for the Southern Seas 2011 deployment. Thach Sailors participated in three major multinational exercises, made port visits to seven countries and worked first-hand with international sailors and communities throughout the deployment. “Southern Seas is significantly different from Thach’s last two deployments,” said Cmdr. Jeff Scudder, Thach’s commanding officer. “For the crew, it was a welcome chance to increase friendships with our fellow mariners from the navies of the Western Hemisphere – a rare opportunity we were all excited to have.” As part of the Southern Seas deployment, Thach participated in the Atlantic and Pacific phases of UNITAS 52 and PANAMAX 2011. Each of the exercises provided Sailors the opportunity to work and train side-by-side with sailors of the Latin American navies and build relationships. The relationships that develop from this exercise helped foster cooperation and understanding between participating countries. “The exercises enhanced and demonstrated the Navy’s commitment to addressing regional challenges that require cooperative action with the nations of the Americas,” said Scudder. “Through emphasizing interoperability and cooperative exercises, Thach positively contributed to global partnerships.” Ashore, Sailors experienced the cultural diversity and rich heritage found in Central and South America during the many port calls in the countries of Brazil, Uruguay, Chile, Peru, Panama and El Salvador. In each country, Sailors participated in local ceremonies, military-to-military subject matter expert exchanges and sporting events. “It’s important for the Navy to conduct military-to-military engagements with our Central and South American partners to improve interoperability and share tactics, techniques and procedures with respect to maritime security operations,” said Lt. Cmdr. Ronnie Mangsat, Thach’s executive officer. “We proved that different cultures can find commonality in the ways we operate and that’s the essence of interoperability – the ability to find a common ground on which we can lay the foundation for continued and future operations.” Sailors volunteered in several community relations projects, such as painting and repairing local schools, orphanages, churches and parks. Thach was also responsible for transporting and delivering stuffed animals donated though Loving Hugs and pallets of medical and hygiene supplies donated by Project Handclasp.
