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...
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...
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...
Optimization of bread baking in a halogen lamp-microwave combination oven by response surface methodology
Demirekler, P; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2004-09-01)
The main objective of this study was to optimize the baking conditions of bread in a halogen lamp-microwave combination oven. Independent variables were the baking time (4, 4.5, 5, 5.5, and 6 min), the power of the microwaves (20, 30, 40, 50, and 60%), and the power of the upper and lower halogen lamps (40, 50, 60, 70, and 80%). The quality parameters measured were the weight loss, the color, the specific volume, the porosity, and the texture profile of the breads. For the optimization, the response surface...
THE EFFECT OF DIFFERENT FORMULATIONS ON PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF CAKES BAKED WITH MICROWAVE AND NEAR INFRARED-MICROWAVE COMBINATIONS
Sakiyan, Ozge; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil; Meda, Venkatesh (2007-01-01)
The aim of this study was to determine the effect of different formulations on color and textural characteristics of different cakes during baking in microwave and near infrared-microwave combination ovens. For comparison, cakes were also baked in conventional ovens. Color and hardness for both types of baking schemes were found to be dependent on formulation. Cakes containing Simplesse (TM), a fat replacer consisting mostly of whey protein, baked in microwave and near infrared-microwave combination ovens w...
