  • Wang, Weiqun; Ayella, Allan; Jiang, Yu; Ouyang, Ping; Qu, Hongyan (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2008-05-08)
    Consumption of dietary fibers, particularly fibers from wheat bran, has been associated with a reduced risk of colorectal cancer. However, the experimental evidence by using different fiber sources on colon cancer prevention ...
  • Daniel, M.J.; Arnett, A.M.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009-12-09)
    Because the beef industry commonly uses marbling as an indicator of meat palatability, determining the most cost effective methods of increasing quality grade in cattle is a high priority. Previous research showed that ...
  • Garcia, Jane Mertz; Chambers, Edgar, IV; Matta, Ziad; Clark, Megan (2008-05-27)
    This study reports the viscosity (thickness) of nectar- and honey-thick liquids measured at a typical serving temperature. Centipoise (cP) measurements were compared for three products (two starch and one gum-based thickener) ...
  • Arnett, A.M.; Daniel, M.J.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009-12-09)
    Marbling continues to be a major factor affecting profitability for beef producers, processors, retailers, and restaurateurs. However, feeding animals to ‘fatten’ is quite inefficient, requiring about 2.25 times more energy ...
  • Howells, Amber D.; Roberts, Kevin R.; Shanklin, Carol W.; Pilling, Valerie K.; Brannon, Laura A.; Barrett, Betsy B. (2008-08-27)
    Limited research has been conducted to assess employees' perceptions of barriers to implementing food safety practices. Focus groups were conducted with two groups of restaurant employees to identify perceived barriers ...
  • Lauer, Jacob; Kastner, Justin; Nutsch, Abbey L. (2009-02-03)
    This multidisciplinary research project examined the role of primary care physicians in past pandemic flu responses and current planning efforts. Project researchers gathered and synthesized historical research, state and ...
  • Jiang, Yu; Wang, Weiqun (2009-03-03)
    Weight control via dietary caloric restriction and/or physical activity has been demonstrated in animal models for cancer prevention. However, the underlying mechanisms are not fully understood. Body weight loss due to ...
  • Grobbel, J.P.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Milliken, George A.; Hunt, Melvin C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009-12-09)
    Case-ready meat provides many benefits, including quality and safety. Meat packaged in high-oxygen (HiO2) modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) has a desirable bright red display color but may have increased off- flavors ...
  • Grobbel, J.P.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Milliken, George A.; Hunt, Melvin C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009-12-09)
    Several meat quality traits affect consumers’ overall purchase decisions and satisfaction with meat products, but color is the major factor affecting purchasing decisions. According to some researchers, tenderness is the ...
  • Raines, C.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009-12-09)
    It is widely accepted that meat color is the most important influencer of consumers’ meat purchasing decisions. Understanding how ground cow meat discolors is, and will continue to be, very important as a large influx of ...
  • Kidd, Tandalayo; Johannes, Elaine; Simonson, Larry; Medeiros, Denis (2008-07-10)
    Nearly 9 million children and adolescents are overweight in the United States. The prevalence of overweight children aged 6-11 and overweight adolescents aged 12-19 has more than tripled in the past 30 years.1 Recognizing ...
  • Pilling, Valerie K.; Brannon, Laura A.; Shanklin, Carol W.; Howells, Amber D.; Roberts, Kevin R. (2008-06-13)
    Current national food safety training programs appear ineffective at improving food safety practices in foodservice operations, given the substantial number of Americans affected by foodborne illnesses after eating in ...
  • Ok, Chihyung; Shanklin, Carol W.; Back, Ki-Joon (2008-08-15)
    Using college students as research subjects in consumer research may or may not be appropriate. This paper discusses external validity of research findings using student subjects as surrogates for consumers in experimental, ...
  • Pilling, Valerie K.; Brannon, Laura A.; Shanklin, Carol W.; Roberts, Kevin R.; Barrett, Betsy B.; Howells, Amber D. (International Association for Food Protection, 2008-05-19)
    Very little research has evaluated how different types of food safety training requirements in foodservice establishments affect food handlers' performance. Foodservice employees (n = 242) from randomly selected restaurants ...
  • Roberts, Kevin R.; Barrett, Betsy B.; Howells, Amber D.; Shanklin, Carol W.; Pilling, Valerie K.; Brannon, Laura A. (International Association for Food Protection, 2008-05-19)
    Statistics show that 59% of foodborne illnesses are traced to restaurant operations. Food safety training has been identified as a way to assure public health, yet evidence supporting the effectiveness of training has been ...
  • Kwon, Junehee; Wilson, Amber N.S.; Bednar, Carolyn; Kennon, Lisa (2010-10-25)
    Although the incidence of foodborne illnesses has declined, thousands of cases are still reported in the United States. In conjunction with industry efforts to reduce foodborne pathogens, consumers play an important role ...
  • Gelso, Brett R.; Fox, John A.; Peterson, Jeffrey M. (2012-10-16)
    We survey landowners to investigate the costs associated with the presence of permanent or seasonal wetland areas in cropland. We find, as predicted by our conceptual model, that dispersion of wetland areas imposes substantial ...

(Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009-10-06)
    A total of 48 gilts (initially 211 lb) were used to evaluate the effects of ractopamine HCl and α-lipoic acid on finishing pig performance and carcass characteristics. Pigs were blocked by weight and randomly allotted to ...
