The addition of honey to mixed beverages is interesting due to its contribution to the sweet taste, as well as because it is a dietary source of bioactive compounds. In this study, we investigated the chemical composition and sensory acceptance of an apple and passion fruit mixed beverage with added honey. The addition of honey did not produce a noticeable change in instrumental color but led to an increase in total soluble solids contents, and FRAP (20%), TEAC (72%), and DPPH (62%) values. The ...

The objective of this study was to cook a risotto using curcuma, black pepper, and hot paprika among the ingredients in order to evaluate the effect of in vitro digestion on its bioactive compounds content and antioxidant activity. Cooking processing and in vitro digestion did result in loss of bioactive compounds and reduction of antioxidant activity. Five minutes of cooking led to a decrease of 25% in the content of curcuminoids, 31% in piperines, and no decrease was noticed in the capsaicin c...
