Beer has long been the prime lubricant in our social intercourse and the sacred throat-anointing fluid that accompanies the ritual of mateship. To sink a few cold ones with the blokes is both an escape and a confirmation of belonging.

Scientific Digest


German brewing scientists have already been looking into this for a couple of years. The ability of hop constituents to suppress the formation of 3-methylbutanal and 2-furfural in wort-like model systems containing maltose, leucine, and Fe2+ was investigated. The functional principle by which hop alpha-acids and beta-acids diminish the formation of 3-methylbutanal and 2-furfural may be ascribed to their unique molecular structure and chemical properties. This allows them to perturb oxidative or nonoxidative formation of aldehydes. Findings from this study indicate that antioxidative potential may be explained through, but not necessarily limited to, two mechanisms. First, because of the hop alpha-acids' complexation functionality towards transition metal ions such as iron and copper, they can block or attenuate oxidative pathways of the Maillard reaction and suppress the generation of reactive oxygen species, thereby preventing oxidative degradation of leucine to 3-methylbutanal. Second, once hydroxyl radicals are formed, they can act directly as antioxidants and suppressing free radical reactions with leucine again, which can yield its corresponding aldehyde. Other aldehydes may show the same behavior and response to the presence to hop alpha-acids.

Barley news Ukraine: Barley exports up 19% from last season
Ukrainian barley exports kept their faster pace in April-May 2017. In total, the country has exported 5.25 mln tonnes of barley this season, i.e. already 19% more than for the whole last season, reports UkrAgroConsult.

Deliveries of Ukrainian barley to Libya reached a record 920 thousand tonnes. Exports to the EU market increased 53% to 348 thousand tonnes against 227 thousand for the whole last season.

This season witnessed a rise in Ukrainian barley shipments to almost all the key export destinations such as Jordan, Israel, Algeria and Morocco.

Noteworthy is some recovery of barley exports from Ukraine to Turkey. In the period under review, Ukrainian exporters shipped 128 thousand tonnes of barley to this country against 11 thousand in MY 2015/16.

Barley news USA & Japan: US barley farmers finding a growing high-value market in Japan
Japanese diets may not match those of U.S. farmers, but the push for healthy foods in Japan is creating a small and growing high-value market for U.S. food barley, agroprofessional.com reported on June 16.

“With Japan’s health-conscious public, the country is an excellent market for high beta-glucan U.S. barley,” said Tommy Hamamoto, U.S. Grains Council (USGC) director in Japan. “Promoting barley as an alternative grain for the Japanese consumer has led to steadily increasing imports, increased consumer awareness and contracted sales.”

High beta-glucan barley has heart-healthy properties that may reduce cholesterol, lower the risk of heart disease and reduce glycemic index, according to U.S. research. These nutritional properties make U.S. varieties of food barley attractive for Japanese food producers who use the grain to produce shochu, a Japanese distilled liquor and beer, as well as tea and cereal.

U.S. food barley exports to Japan are worth twice the average price of feed barley, but the marketplace is very competitive. Most of the food barley consumed in the country is either grown locally or sourced from cheaper Australian supplies. The terms of the Trans-Pacific Partnership would have established an escalating tariff rate quota (TRQ) for food barley and malt in addition to eliminating the ...More info on site
