Total nitrogen, water-soluble nitrogen and free amino acids profile during ripening of soft cheese enriched with Nigella sativa seed oil

the formation of peptides and FAA ( 25 ). The present study aims to extend the knowledge on NSSO enrichment effect on raw milk soft cheese, using higher concentrations of NSSO, than the ones of previous studies and further investigate how NSSO is affecting cheese ripening profiling, by studying more specific ripening indices, such as total nitrogen (TN), water soluble nitrogen (WSN). Material and Methods Recent Fresh raw bovine milk was collected from small local farms and one collection center in Argeș county, Romania, and delivered to the traditional

Greenhouse study on the influence of natural biostimulators and fertilizers on improving bean plants growth and microbial activity in oil-polluted soil

fungi, Pseudomonas fluorescens and actinomycetes. The qualitative differences between rhizosphere soils determined by the treatments with natural stimulators and fertilizers were evidenced on the particular aspect of paper circular chromatograms.
