Development of biodegradable gluten based films and characterization of their mechanical and gas permeability properties

Kayserilioglu, Betül Şefika
The correlation between film forming procedures and selected physical properties of wheat gluten films by different characterization methods was examined. Firstly, film forming solutions were prepared at different pH's (4, 6, and 1 1) in the presence or absence of ethanol and dried at room condition. The films prepared at pH 1 1 were significantly stronger than the films prepared at pH 4 and 6. With increasing Cma, the strain at break (&b) was moderately reduced. No significant variations were observed among water vapor transfer rate (WVTR) properties of films. The film solubility decreased with increasing pH of films. Formation of high-molecular weight fractions of protein observed films at pH 11. The amount of free amino groups in the wheat gluten decreased during film formations. Amino acid analysis mon film surfaces at pH 11. All these results indicate the formation of irreversible cross-linking upon film formation. Later, aqueous film forming solutions were prepared at pH 1 1 and dried at different temperatures (20, 50 and 80°C) and relative humidities (35 and 70 %RH). Decreasing relative humidity altered Omax and elastic modulus (E) but not 6b. oinax increased when drying temperature increased at 35 % RH but decreased when temperature increased at 70 % RH. Thickness of the films decreased but hypothetical coating strength (HCS) and WVTR increased with increased drying temperature at either relative humidity. Those films produced at 80 °C exhibited low solubility in aqueous solution. However, solubility of films in 1.5 (w/v %) SDS solution increased. In overall, drying temperature and relative humidity affected properties of tiie wheat gluten films. Finally, the possibility of using xylan as an agricultural by-product for production of composite films in combinations with wheat gluten was investigated. Different levels of xylan (0-40 % w/w) were incorporated into wheat gluten to form composite films. Films were prepared at different pH, 4 and 1 1, and dried at either uncontrolled (room condition) or controlled (80 °C and 70 % RH) conditions. Changing pH, wheat gluten/xylan ratio, xylan type and drying conditions affected mechanical and solubility properties of films. However, WVTR were not affected. The results showed that production of films by using xylan is possible according to needs by choosing xylan type, composition and process conditions.


Development of pea flour based active films produced through different homogenization methods and their effects on lipid oxidation
Yıldız, Eda; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (Elsevier BV, 2021-02-01)
The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of gallic acid incorporation and homogenization method (high-speed homogenization and ultrasonication) on the physicochemical characteristics of pea flour based active films and the activity of the films against lipid oxidation. The water vapor permeability results of the active films increased by approximately 16% with the addition of gallic acid. Furthermore, active films had higher elongation and flexibility due to the plasticizing effect of gall...
Investigation of lipid-derived formation of decadien-1-amine, 2-pentylpyridine, and acrylamide in potato chips fried in repeatedly used sunflower oil
Karademir, Yesim; GÖKMEN, VURAL; Öztop, Halil Mecit (Elsevier BV, 2019-07-01)
This study aimed to investigate lipid derived formations of decadien-1-amine, 2-pentylpyridine, and acrylamide in potato chips during frying. 2,4-Decadienal, a lipid derived carbonyl, was monitored in repeatedly used sunflower oil at different thermoxidation levels (0, 6, 12, 18, 24 h at 180 degrees C), and in potato chips prepared in. Formations of decadien-1-amine and 2-pentylpyridine were shown for the first time in potato chips. Frying oil had the highest concentration of 2,4-decadienal after thermal ox...
Using high pressure microfluidization to improve physical properties and lycopene content of ketchup type products
Mert, Behiç (Elsevier BV, 2012-04-01)
This study evaluates the effects of high pressure microfluidization of ketchup mixes on the physical properties and lycopene content. During the processing the pressure level ranged between 200 and 2000 bar, while the number of passes was kept constant. When the treatment pressure was increased from 200 to 1200 bar, the yield stress, elastic modulus, storage modulus. and Bostwick consistency values of the ketchup samples improved. However, over-processing was observed for the samples treated at 1600 and 200...
Development of novel pea flour-based nanofibres by electrospinning method
Oğuz, Seren; Aydogdu, AYÇA; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (Wiley, 2018-05-01)
The aim of this study was to produce pea flour and hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC)-based novel nanofibres using electrospinning method. The effects of pH, pea flour and HPMC concentration on apparent viscosity, electrical conductivity of electrospinning solutions and nanofibre characteristics were studied. Solutions were prepared at different pH values (7, 10, 12), with different pea flour concentrations (1%, 2% w/v) and HPMC concentrations (0.25%, 0.5%, 1.0% w/v). For all pea flour concentrations, k v...
A new method to determine viscoelastic properties of corn grits during cooking and drying
Mert, Behiç; Campanella, Osvaldo H. (Elsevier BV, 2007-07-01)
The working principles and the theoretical background of a new method to measure the viscoelastic properties of grains during cooking and drying processes are presented. Specifically, corn grits at different processing stages of cooking and drying were chosen as the model grain and their viscoelastic characteristics, namely elastic stiffness and viscous damping, were determined. During the measurements grits were squeezed between a rigid bottom plate and a top round element oscillating at random frequencies...
