The main objective of the study was to determine the effects of enzymes on quality of breads baked in halogen lamp-microwave combination, microwave and conventional oven. It was also aimed to determine the optimum processing conditions in these ovens. In the first part of the study, as independent variables, baking time, baking temperature for conventional oven; microwave power for microwave oven and microwave power and halogen power for combination oven was used. Weight loss, specific volume, firmness and color of the breads were measured during the study. The optimum baking conditions were determined as 13 min at 200°C in conventional oven, 0.75 min at 100% power in microwave oven, 10 min at 60% power in halogen lamp oven, and 3 min at 30% microwave power and 70% halogen lamp power in halogen lamp-microwave combination oven. In the case of combination oven, specific volume and color values of breads were comparable with the conventionally baked breads but weight loss and firmness of them were still higher. The effects of different enzymes (a-amylase, xylanase, lipase & protease) were studied to reduce the quality problems of breads baked in microwave and halogen lamp-microwave combination oven. The optimum baking conditions determined for each type of oven in the first part of the study were used in the investigation of the functions of enzymes on bread quality during baking and staling. As a control, no enzyme added breads baked at 200°C for 13 min in conventional oven were used. All the enzymes were found to be effective in reducing initial firmness and increasing specific volume of breads baked in microwave and halogen lamp-microwave combination ovens. However, in conventional baking, the effects of enzymes on crumb firmness were seen mostly during storage. The usage of enzyme protease in the bread formulation resulted in breads with higher volume and darker

Effect of different flours on quality of legume cakes to be baked in microwave-infrared combination oven and conventional oven
OZKAHRAMAN, Betul Canan; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (2016-03-01)
The objective of this study was to compare the quality of legume cakes baked in microwave-infrared combination (MW-IR) oven with conventional oven. Legume cake formulations were developed by replacing 10 % wheat flour by lentil, chickpea and pea flour. As a control, wheat flour containing cakes were used. Weight loss, specific volume, texture, color, gelatinization degree, macro and micro-structure of cakes were investigated. MW-IR baked cakes had higher specific volume, weight loss and crust color change a...
EFFECTS OF SUSCEPTOR, COATING AND CONVENTIONAL BROWNING APPLICATIONS ON COLOR AND CRUST FORMATION DURING MICROWAVE BAKING
Şahin, Serpil; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm (2002-01-01)
The effects of different browning treatments on the crust color and crust hardness of microwave baked breads were investigated. Microwave oven was operated at 20%, 30% and 40% powers for 3.5-5.5 minutes. As a control, breads were baked in a conventional oven at 200 degrees C for 12 minutes. After microwave baking, breads were browned or conventional browning times increased, crust hardness and weight loss of breads increased. When susceptors were used, desired browning and hardness were obtained on the bott...
Assessment of proofing of bread dough in the microwave oven
Ozmutlu, O; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (2001-01-01)
The effects of different proofing times in the microwave oven on the quality of microwave baked breads were investigated. The proofing height of the dough, specific volume and the firmness of the breads were found to be dependent on proofing time. When emulsifiers were added, the optimum proofing condition in the microwave oven was found to be 6 minutes at 10% power. The effects of different emulsifiers on the properties of the dough and, the volume and the firmness of the microwave-baked breads were compar...
Effects of microwave frying and different flour types addition on the microstructure of batter coatings
Barutcu, Isil; Şahin, Serpil; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm (2009-12-01)
In this study, the influences of microwave frying and various flour types on microstructure of batter coatings were investigated. Control batter formulation contained only wheat and corn flour. To determine the effects of different flour types, 30% of the corn and wheat flour mix was replaced with chickpea, rice or soy flours. Frying was performed in microwave oven at 365 W (70%) power level for 1.5 min after bringing the oil temperature to 180 +/- 1 degrees C. Samples were also fried in a conventional frye...
Usage of enzymes in a novel baking process
Keskin, SO; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (Wiley, 2004-04-01)
In this study, the effects of different enzymes (a-amylase, xylanase, lipase, protease) on quality of breads baked in different ovens (microwave, halogen lamp-microwave combination and conventional oven) were investigated. It was also aimed to reduce the quality problems of breads baked in microwave ovens with the usage of enzymes. As a control, bread dough containing no enzyme was used. Specific volume, firmness and color of the breads were measured as quality parameters. All of the enzymes were found to b...
