On the other hand, Lima et al. Estimation of leaf area for greenhouse cucumber by linear measurements under salinity and grafting. In his research into the impregnation of plant tissue with probiotic microorganisms, cientifjcas 31 ] also mentions that in apple impregnated with S.

Table invewtigaciones shows the values of malic acid mass fraction X MHD that were established:. In those figures, the tendency for solute gains in the fruit as a function of time and vacuum pressure can be observed. European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, v. Subsequently, different pressures and timings were applied, followed by a further 10 min at atmospheric pressure. How to cite this article.

Thus, the models which use the product LW to predict the yacon leaf area are more accurate higher R a 2 and lower SE. The growing scientific interest in yacon is due to its abundant source of fructan, fructo-oligosaccharides FOSinstead of starch [ 2 ].

From this perspective, the closer to the unit, the more accurate will be the model to estimate the invesyigaciones area.

Journal of Obesity

In sobrr products enriched with calcium and iron, [ 31 ] obtained a volume fraction of 0. The leaf area evaluation has been carried out directly through digital integrators and indirectly, through associative mathematical models Silva et al.


The authors excluded from this accounting and, therefore from this study, unopened leaves and the ones which were damaged, mechanically or by pests. O cultivo do yacon no Brasil.

Density of the solution: Yacon is its mainly characterized by being rich in fructans and phenolic acids, with prebiotic sobr antioxidant effects, respectively. Raiz tuberosa de yacon Smallanthus sonchifolius: One of the essential morphologic variables which influence plant growth is the leaf area.

Linear regression of the experimental data shows that the volume fraction intercept value is an average of 0. Table 4 presents the results of the chemicophysical analysis of the yacon impregnated with Aloe vera after dehydration.

Statistics for the evaluation and comparisons of models. The prebiotic potential, glycemic index reduction and improvement of bone health are the effects that stand out in the in vivo researches.

Changes in color are due to the concentration of pigments or their degradation. The index of agreement between estimates of the model chosen and the values of leaf area observed was carried out using index d Willmott et al. Aloe is a CAM-type plant Crassulacean Acidic Metabolism plantsand these plants differ from other plants in the vegetable kingdom by not developing photosynthesis. Thus, the authors decided to compare these models, choosing among them the best one, statistically.

Smallanthus sonchifolius; leaf size; mathematical modeling. Volumetric fraction; mass fraction; impregnation solution; physiologically active components; porous structures. Annals of Applied Biology Information related to these technologies is rare in the phytotechnical area, only some notes taken by Vilhena et al. In a similar way, for sunflower crop, power model was chosen for being the most accurate Maldaner et al.


Yacon has no specific growing technologies, because its commercial exploitation is recent. The conclusion was that these fruits suffer high levels of deformation when they are subjected to VI treatments in particular operative conditions. Acemannan, a partially acetylated polysaccharide found in the Aloe vera gel, is responsible for its biological activities [ 10 ], [ 11 ], [ 8 ]. Characterization of the final product Table 4 presents the results of the chemicophysical analysis of the yacon impregnated with Aloe vera after dehydration.

Yacon: health benefits and technological applications

An increase in solids gain can be observed up to a relaxation time of 30 min, after which the values of solids gained are roughly constant [ 30 ]. Length C ; B: The d value is calculated using the following equation:. Services on Demand Journal. Within this context, vacuum impregnation VI has been largely used to obtain a rapid penetration of solvated compounds in plant tissues together with a homogeneous concentration profile of the solutes in the final products [ 12 ].
