Nutritional and sensory value of meat alternatives
Gregorová, Ema ; Doležal, Marek (advisor) ; Weidenthalerová, Edita (referee)
Meat alternatives are playing an increasingly important role not only in the diet of vegetarians and vegans, their nutritional value and sensory properties are often a matter of discussion. The aim of this thesis was to evaluate nutritional and sensory value of meat analogues nutritionally and the conclusion of the paper is dedicated to the comparison of nutritional values with those of beef. A total of 17 samples were analyzed, most of the analysis is devoted to 16 meat alternatives, the sensory analysis included a sample of animal meat for comparison of organoleptic properties. Several methods were used to determine the nutritional values in the samples: gravimetry (determination of dry matter content), Soxhlet extraction (determination of fat content), Kjeldahl method (determination of protein content), GC/FID (determination of fatty acid composition), sensory analysis. The determination of dry matter, protein and fat provided quantitative data which were used to calculate the carbohydrate content. The fat content of the meat alternatives evaluated ranged from 0,2-22,5 g/100 g, the protein content ranged from 6,7-57,4 g/100 g and the carbohydrate content from 1,15-37,8 g/100 g. The ratio of nutrients in the alternatives was more diverse than in the animal meat. The analysis of fatty acid...
Patients' knowledge of scientific and alternative diet, functional foods in the Czech Republic
Weidenthalerová, Edita ; Svačina, Štěpán (advisor) ; Vysoká, Lenka (referee)
This Bachelor's thesis deals with issue of patient's knowledge in field of scientific and alternative dietology. The Bachelor's thesis is divided into theoretical and practical part. The first theoretical part deals with dietology from two points of view - wide-spread and well-known rational nutrition, also it addresses alternative diets. Furthermore, funtional foods, their efficient components and benefits for the health are analyzed. The practical part validates predefined hypotheses, concerning the knowledge of patients, who are being cured mostly for obesity or Diabetes Mellitus. It involves their personal experiences with using dietary supplements or medications used to heal above mentioned diseases. The data was collected using questionnaire. Evaluated results are presented in graphs. The main fact coming out of the analysis is that most of ill people have deeper experience with dietary supplement than medications. They also do not think that these supplements or medications actually help them. The theoretical knowledge of alternative dietology were very useful because patients had almost no personal experience with that type of dietology. The main goal of this Bachelor's thesis is to generally point out that proper diet can prevent a lot of diseases. Key words: Obesity, Diabetes Mellitus,...
The influence of school meals and family on the development of overweight and childhood obesity
Skřivanová, Eliška ; Kytnarová, Jitka (advisor) ; Weidenthalerová, Edita (referee)
Currently childhood obesity has reached epidemiological levels and can be considered one of the world's biggest problems. The probability of an obese child becoming an obese adult is dangerously high. These children are also more likely to develop health risks. The mechanism of development of obesity is conditioned by a number of factors. These are most often genetic factors, whilst their environment also plays a large role. In this case the influence of the family and the preferred lifestyle, which plays a significant part in the development of obesity, may be a factor. Early treatment and detection is important to prevent future issues with weight and serious health risks. However in order for obesity to be treated, it must first be diagnosed, the so-called diagnosis of childhood obesity. School meals in Czech Republic are considered to be one of the most advanced in Europe. It is not about providing a sufficiently strict diet, it also pays attention to variety, balance of dishes and dining culture. School meals must comply with the legislation, comply with financial limits and follow nutritional standards, respectively a consumer basket that sets out the required quantity of ten food commodities per pupil a day and these have to be adhered to within one month. The environment of prevention...
The influence of irregular diet and exercise on the development of childhood obesity
Horáčková, Simona ; Pejšová, Hana (advisor) ; Weidenthalerová, Edita (referee)
The topic of this bachelor's thesis is childhood obesity, which is currently still a major challenge not only in Czech pediatrics. The work focuses mainly on the connection between childhood obesity and irregular eating and exercise regime of children of younger school age. The theoretical part focuses on the prevalence of childhood obesity, health risks associated with it, factors influencing the development of childhood obesity, and also on the possibilities related to both nutritional and exercise recommendations. Chapter 1.9 additionally deals with the epidemiological situation of Covid-19 related to the introduction of various regime measures, having an impact on the diet and exercise regime of children. The main goal of the practical part is to find out what are the eating and exercise habits of children of younger school age. Furthermore, to compare the role of the frequency of individual habits with the weight percentile of children and also to point out the risky behavior of children and parents in connection with weight gain in children and to recommend appropriate interventions. In the practical part, the results from an anonymous, quantitative questionnaire survey, which was intended for parents of children of younger school age (6-11 years), are first evaluated both graphically and in...
Assessment of Nutritional Status and Clinical Manifestation in Infants with Allergic Colitic
Weidenthalerová, Edita ; Floriánková, Marcela (advisor) ; Frühauf, Pavel (referee)
This diploma thesis deals with the evaluation of clinical manifestations in infants with allergic colitis and their overall nutritional status, anthropometry, blood count and antibodies against cow's milk proteins. Allergic colitis is one of the most common manifestations of infant allergy to cow`s milk protein with gastrointestinal involvement. The theoretical part summarizes the anthropometric evaluation of growth and development, infant nutrition, the most important laboratory indicators of nutritional status. The part is generally devoted to food allergies, mainly allergy to cow's milk protein. The practical part deals with the evaluation of a sample of examined patients in gastroenterology outpatient clinics and nutritional outpatient clinic of the Department of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine of the 1st Faculty of Medicine, Charles University and General Hospital in Prague. The observed group of infants with allergic colitis includes infants exclusively breastfed, breastfed by a mother following a non-dairy diet, infants on an extensive hydrolyzate or on an amino acid formula. The main goal of the diploma thesis was to trace the most common clinical manifestations and whether there are any changes in their nutritional status during the disease and its treatment. A total of 45 randomly...
