The objective of this work is to assess the nutritional status of high school pupils in the city of Brazzaville, as well as the relationship between the Body Mass Index (BMI) obtained and the eating behavior of these pupils. This study... Continue here

Application Of Artificial Neural Network For Estimating The Qualitative Characteristics Of Cantaloupe Melon And Comparison With The Regression Model
In this paper, the quality characteristics of melon was estimated by using color parameters and neural networks for three fertilizing stages (no fertilizer, fertilizing 5 and 10 ton/ha). For this purpose, chemical parameters including fructose, glucose and sucrose, and color parameters such as L*, a*, b* were studied. Physical characteristics under study were... Continue here

A Systematic Review Of Maternal Feeding Practice And Its Outcome In Developing Countries
Maternal nutrition is an important public health problem in low-income countries around the world and mothers from this setting are considered as a nutritionally vulnerable group. Due to the nursing process, mothers are subjected to nutritional stresses. Frequent pregnancies followed by lactation and poor feeding habits result in poor birth outcomes and increase...

Effect Of Some Processing Methods On The Proximate, Mineral, Microbiological And Sensory Qualities Of Cowpea Enriched Maize Snack (ipekere Agbado)
The development of cheap, readily available and nutritious snack from indigenous crops (maize and cowpea blend) was carried out and evaluated. The objective of the study was to increase the nutrient content of the snack with respect to protein and mineral. The effect of processing methods; oven-drying and oil-frying on the quality attributes of the snack was... Continue here

Physico-chemical And Antibacteria Evaluation Of Oil Extracted From Ripe And Unripe Pawpaw Seed (carica Papaya)
Crude oil samples extracted from seeds of ripe and unripe pawpaw (Carica papaya) were evaluated for their physicochemical characteristics and antibacterial activities using standard methods. The chemical characteristics evaluated for oil from ripe and unripe pawpaw seed were Iodine value (g/100g) 52.44 ± 0.02 and 47.62 ± 0.01, Acid value (mg/g) 9.27... Continue here

Thin Layer Modelling Of Hybrid, Solar And Open Sun Drying Of Tomato Slices
