Food-Capsule

A dietary supplement is a product taken by mouth that contains a "dietary ingredient" intended to supplement the diet.

There are many different types of dietary supplements, including herbs and botanicals, minerals, vitamins and amino acids, among others.

Japan’s nutritional supplements sector is a major market for U.S. firms and one that appears likely to continue to exhibit steady growth for the foreseeable future. Japan’s 8th largest seller among supplement products.

The Dietary Supplement Industry Contributes Nearly $61 Billion to the Economy Through Direct and Ripple Effects.

70% of the sales of nutrient-type supplements come from vitamin C, protein, calcium and vitamin E products. They are easily understood
and accepted by consumers.

Plants containing aristolochic acids are often used as herbal medicines or in other botanical products in the United States and abroad.

Aristolochic acid (AA), a mixture of aristolochic acid I (AAI) and aristolochic acid II (AAII), is present in Aristolochiaceae plants, many of which are used as herbal folk remedies.


Boron Trifluoride

Boron trifluoride is the chemical compound with the formula BF3. This pungent colourless toxic gas forms white fumes in moist air. It is a useful Lewis acid and a versatile building block for other boron compounds.

BF3 is manufactured by the reaction of boron oxides with hydrogen fluoride.

Boron trifluoride used in sensitive neutron detectors in ionization chambers and devices to monitor radiation levels in the Earth's atmosphere.

Boron Trifluoride is a non-flammable compressed gas, packaged and shipped in cylinders under high pressure. It is often advantageous to use BF3 in a complexed form so that BF3 can be released under preferred conditions.BF3 complexes are typically liquids or solids and therefore may be more easily managed than the high pressure gas.

Weedicide

WEEDS are the plants, which grow where they are not wanted. They grow in thefields where they compete with crops for water, soil nutrients, light and space and thus reduce crop yields.

The controlling of weeds in the growing crops with weedicides increases their yields and ensures the efficient use of irrigation,fertilizers and plant-protection measures, such as the spraying of insecticides and fungicides.

Both the nature of the weeds and that of the crops which they infest, influence the action of the weedicides. For example, the same types of weeds occur in maize and cotton which are kharif crops. 2,4-D can be used for killing the weeds in maize, but this weedicide should never be used on cotton which is highly sensitive to it.

A series of field trials were conducted to evaluate the effect of newly introduced weedicide against broad leaved weeds of wheat crop at Adaptive Research Farm.

Ginger-Paste

With increasing ginger production in Hawaii, canned ginger paste was made experimentally as a value-added product.

In India, a ginger paste is traditionally made with 50% sliced and macerated ginger, 35% garlic, and 15% salt.

The ginger is washed with chlorinated water and ordinary water and made into paste in pulveriser.

The Influence of temperature on the rheological characteristics of ginger paste were studied using a rheometer

Ginger and Garlic Paste is mainly used as a condiment in various food preparation
and also serves as a carminative and gastric stimulant in many medicine
preparations.

Core-Oil

An oil compound used with sand to make foundry core.

Core oil is a substance for binding core sand together.

Core-binding properties of beniseed and melon oils are hereby characterised with a view to finding
alternatives to the imported foundry core oils that deplete Nigeria’s foreign exchange.

A report is prepared which contains the results of testing to measure the core making/baking and pouring/ cooling/shakeout emissions from core oil cores.

Dry Ice (Compressed Carbon Dioxide)

Dry Ice," the trademark name for solid carbon dioxide, reaches its solid state when cooled liquid carbon dioxide is put under pressure.
Dry ice is solidified carbon dioxide (CO2). Distinct from regular ice, which exists at temperatures of 32°F (0°C) and below, dry ice is extremely cold, -109°F (-79°C).
Dry ice advantages include lower temperature than that of water ice and not leaving any residue (other than incidental frost from moisture in the atmosphere). It is useful for preserving frozen foods, ice cream, etc.,
One of the largest mechanical uses of dry ice is blast cleaning. Dry ice pellets are shot out of a nozzle with compressed air. This can remove residues from industrial equipment.

Laparoscopy

Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique used in procedures such as tubal ligation, gallbladder removal or hiatal hernia repair. Laparoscopy is usually performed under general anesthesia; however it can be performed with other types of anesthesia that permit the patient to remain awake.
There are two types of laparoscope: (1) a telescopic rod lens system, that is usually connected to a video camera (single chip or three chip), or (2) a digital laparoscope where the charge-coupled device is placed at the end of the laparoscope, eliminating the rod lens system.
The potential benefits of laparoscopic surgery include the reduction of postoperative morbidity and pain, less compromise of gastrointestinal function and earlier return to a normal socio-professional activity.

Banana and its product


Banana, the fruit of a plant of the genus Musa (family Musaceae) is basically cultivated for food, and secondary for the production of fibers, and also for producing tissue-thin tea bags.
The demand of handmade paper is increasing day by day in domestic as well as in international market. Several varieties of Banana are cultivated in the country. The plants are cut down as soon as fruits are harvested for extraction of fibre. Banana fibre has great potentialities for paper making because of its high alpha-cellulose and low lignin content

Broiler Chicken

A broiler is a type of chicken raised specifically for meat production.
Modern commercial broilers, typically known as Cornish crosses or Cornish-Rocks are specially bred for large scale, efficient meat production and grow much faster than egg or traditional dual purpose breeds.
They have white feathers and yellowish skin. This cross is also favorable for meat production because it lacks the typical "hair" which many breeds have that necessitates singeing after plucking.
