The Journal of Food & Nutritional Disorders promotes rigorous research that makes a significant contribution in advancing knowledge in field of food and nutrition. It aims to publish high quality of articles in journal. It invites the reports of theoretically informed and empirically grounded research which focuses on important issues related to food and nutrition. Journal of Food & Nutritional Disorders includes a wide range of fields in its discipline like Food Safety, Malabsorption & Nutritional, Food Allergies, Food Microbiology, Eating Concerns/Eating Disorders, Diet supplements and Disorders, Food, Health & Wellness, Child Nutrition & Health.
Journal of Food & Nutritional Disorders is an online, best peer-reviewed, scientific, hybrid, journal which offers dual mode of publication, open access & subscription. This mode provides the means to maximize the visibility, citations and readership which enhance the impact of the research work and provides a range of options to purchase our articles and also permits unlimited Internet Access to complete Journal content. It accepts research, review papers, online letters to the editors & brief comments on previously published articles or other relevant findings in SciTechnol. Articles submitted by authors are evaluated by a group of peer review experts in the field and ensures that the published articles are of high quality, reflect solid scholarship in their fields, and that the information they contain is accurate and reliable.
The journal uses Editorial Manager System for a qualitative and prompt review process. Editorial Manager is an online manuscript submission, review and tracking system. Review processing is performed by the editorial board members of Journal of Food & Nutritional Disorders or relevant experts from other universities or institutes. Minimum two independent reviewer’s approval followed by editor approval is required for the acceptance of any citable manuscript. Authors may submit manuscripts and track their progress through the editorial system. Reviewers can download manuscripts and submit their opinions to the editor whereas the editors can manage the whole submission/review/revise/publish process via editorial manager.
Dietary Fatty Acids and Vitamin B3: An Effective Treatment Strategy for the Metabolic Syndrome?
The metabolic syndrome (MS) may be defined as the constellation of cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors that comprises obesity, type 2 diabetes, dyslipidemia, and hypertension. Recent evidences suggest that, primarily due to its high monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) content, olive oil and omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) could be useful as a dietary approach for MS management, with relevance in the postprandial state. Vitamin B3, as a major substrate for nicotinamide phosphoribosyl transferase (NAMPT), also constitutes a nutritional intervention strategy for the treatment of MS. NAMPT has been shown to exert activities of central importance to cellular energetics and innate immunity. Within the cell, NAMPT is the rate-limiting step in a salvage pathway of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) biosynthesis.
The Effects of High-Fat or High-Carbohydrate Diet on Intramyocellular Lipids
Aim: High-fat and high-carbohydrate (carb) diets have been widely consumed over the past few decades; however, the longterm metabolic effects of these diets are unclear. We analysed the effects of a high-fat or high-carb diet on intramyocellular lipids (IMCL), plasma lipids, glycaemia and insulinaemia. Methods: Prospective, randomized, interventional crossover study; 22 overweight women were randomised to two different diet sequences in two phases: weight maintenance and weight loss. IMCL were measured by 1H magnetic resonance spectroscopy.
Can Coffee Ameliorate the Cancer Risks Associated with Low-Moderate Alcohol Consumption in Men?
Alcohol consumption has been reported to increase the risks of several types of cancer, even with moderate levels of consumption. However, in men, but not women, the cancers associated with alcohol consumption have been observed to have decreased incidence in coffee consumers. Possible mechanisms through which coffee might exert a protective effect against these cancers are discussed.
Poor Skeletal Growth Predicts Risk of High Blood Pressure among Adolescent Boys in India
Background: It is believed that poor height may be associated with blood pressure through socially patterned factors such as early nutrition, infection and stress. We therefore examined association of skeletal measures with high blood pressure among adolescents. Subjects/Methods: Adolescent boys (age 9-16 yr) from low socio economic (n=932) and high socio economic (n =1146) classes (LSE & HSE respectively) were studied for anthropometry and blood pressure.
Incidence of Antibiotic Resistance of Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB) Isolated from Various Sudanese Fermented Foods
Antimicrobial resistance is one of the most increasing problems worldwide that has been created due to the extensive use of antibiotics in both human and animal treatment. This could lead to the transmission of antibiotic resistant strains to the human body through food. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to investigate the antibiotic resistance of LAB of fermented foods (sorghum dough, mish, yoghurt, cucumber pickles, cheese and meat sausage) consumed regularly in Sudan. In this regard, 25 strains of LAB were isolated from six types of Sudanese fermented foods. The isolates were tested for their susceptibility to 8 antibiotics including amoxicillin, ceftriaxone, ciprofloxacin, chloramphenicol, erythromycin, tetracycline, tobramycin, and vancomycin by standard disk diffusion method. All isolates showed multiple resistances to the antibiotics used, specifically, tobramycin, ceftriaxone and ciprofloxacin. However, the results demonstrated that none of the isolates were totally susceptible to all antibiotics tested.
Selenium (Se) is one of the essential trace elements necessary for maintenance of optimal health and gaining more importance recently. It is often considered as a two edged sword; inadequate Se is associated with certain diseases and excess intake poses severe adverse threat to human health. With relatively narrow therapeutic window of selenium, its safe range of intake has not been clearly defined so far. Only few roles of Se have been well established, some of its functions are still unclear and remaining unknown. Predominant functions of Se are antioxidant activity for protection against free radicals, detoxification, enhancement of immune system, implicated in thyroid metabolism, cancer prevention, cardiovascular health and also involved in growth and development.
