Scientific Digest


Yes, it is. At least that is the conclusion of a Japanese research team. They investigated six different hop varieties from Germany, Czech Republic and USA from three different crop years. The polyphenol profiles of all varieties show that the composition of monophenols, flavonols, flavanones, prenylflavonoids, flavanols, proanthocyanidins is different for each crop year but within limits. The composition of the polyphenols correlates with the genetic background of the varieties. Further they found that the content of each polyphenol in beer was similar to that in hops used. Fresh beer samples using six hop varieties showed flavour differences for sweetness and astringency. The data suggest that the contents of proanthocyanidin is important for the intensity of sensory fullness while the content of flavanones and prenylflavonoids are in context with astringency.

Conglomerate San Miguel Corp. is preparing to launch a new bond offer worth as much as P20 billion to boost funds to trim foreign currency-denominated debt, Business Inquirer reported on December 23.

The proposed new bond offering is part of SMC’s application for the shelf registration at the Securities and Exchange Commission of up to P60 billion in retail bonds.

SMC disclosed to the Philippine Stock Exchange on December 23 that it had received from the SEC the official notice on its filing for an initial offering of at least P15 billion with an option to increase the offering by as much as P5 billion.

The bonds are proposed to be listed on the fixed income exchange Philippine Dealing and Exchange Corp.

The issuer is allowed to use the same prospectus for various tranches of securities offering under such mechanism.

Such shelf registration is crucial in seeking a good timing to proceed with a planned securities issuance especially when financial markets are volatile. This allows the issuer to complete all the tedious ...More info on site
