An experimental investigation of the impact of fat taxes: Price effects, food stigma, and information effects on economic instruments to improve dietary healthDownload
This thesis investigates how a tax and warning label on less healthy snack food products may affect consumer behaviour when the imposition of the tax is a source of consumer information. A survey that included choice experiments was implemented in supermarkets. Participants were asked to choose...
Beef composites (C) have combined favourable traits of pure breeds. The objective was to compare the growth rates (GR) of muscle (M) and fat (F) in the primal cuts of serially harvested Beefbooster® C types (SM = C of small breeds, AH = C of Angus and Hereford and GLC = C with Gelbvieh, Limousin...
The energy requirements to produce muscle and fat in five beef composites relative to harvest age were determined. In Exp. 1, the proportion of muscle in the whole carcass decreased and fat increased with harvest age (P < 0.01). Based on energy apportioned to muscle and fat, to obtain lean beef,...
Fats are a fundamental building block of the human body, but accumulation of unwanted fat in and around tissues is a common pathology related to many disease mechanisms. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) offers a host of methods to differentiate water and fat signals in images or spectra, for...
Measurement and Correction for the Magnetic Susceptibility Effects of Fat in Venous Oximetry: Application in the Quantification of Muscle Oxygen Consumption (VO2) with Plantar Flexion ExerciseDownload
Measuring venous oxygen saturation (SvO2) provides direct assessment of the upstream muscle or organ's ability to extract and metabolize oxygen. Previously, measurement of venous oxygen saturation has been performed in most studies by intravenous catheterization. This approach has the advantage...
Short communication: Erythrocytes assayed early ante-mortem can predict adipose tissue and muscle trans-18:1 isomeric profiles of steers fed red clover silage supplemented with flaxseedDownload
Steers were fed a red clover silage-based diet with or without flaxseed to evaluate over time the effects of flaxseed supplementation on erythrocytes (ERC) trans(t)18:1 isomers composition and their relationships to adipose tissue and muscle t18:1 profiles at slaughter. Concentrations of most ERC...
Study of Carcass, organ, muscle, fat tissue weight and concentration in rats fed CLA or its precursors by Principal Component AnalysisDownload
Carcass, organ and muscle weight, and fat tissue data were obtained from 30 weaned male Wistar rats fed one of three diets, (10 rats/diet) over a period of 60 d. The diets were base with synthetic conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), sunflower oil or beef enriched CLA. The CLA diet contained the base...
