Utilization of Scytalidium thermophilum phenol oxidase in bioorganic synthesis
Kaptan, Yelda; Ögel, Zümrüt Begüm; Department of Biotechnology (2004)
In this study, the ultimate aim was to utilize phenol oxidases of Scytalidium thermophilum in bioorganic syntheses. For this purpose, studies were conducted towards enhancing the production of phenol oxidases by Scytalidium thermophilum, developing a suitable method for laccase activity assays, analyzing the effects of organic solvents on phenol oxidase activity and analysis of the biotransformation of a number of organic substrates by phenol oxidases of Scytalidium thermophilum. In order to enhance the pro...
Utilization of Beeswax Oleogel-Shortening Mixtures in Gluten-Free Bakery Products
Demirkesen, Ilkem; Mert, Behiç (Wiley, 2019-05-01)
Formulating gluten-free bakery products with acceptable physical properties generally requires a high amount of fat. As the fat used in these products is often high in saturated fatty acids, the objective of this study was to evaluate beeswax (BW) containing oleogels for partial replacement of the shortening in gluten-free aerated products. Oleogels prepared with BW were cocrystallized with a commercial cake shortening in the laboratory scale crystallization unit. Then, the resulting blends were evaluated i...

Natural and synthetic borates find widespread use in different industries. Among synthetic borates, the lithium borate compounds, lithium tetraborate (Li2B4O7) and lithium triborate (LiB3O5) are very important due to their thermoluminescence (TL) properties and usage potential in radiational dosimetry. It is possible to define the phenomenon of thermoluminescence (TL) or thermally stimulated luminescence (TSL) in several different ways, the simplest of which is emission of light when an irradiated material ...
Utilization of lentil flour as a biopolymer source for the development of edible films
Aydogdu, AYÇA; Kırtıl, Emrah; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Öztop, Halil Mecit; Aydogdu, Yildirim (2018-06-15)
Lentils are one of the cheapest and most nutritional protein sources for vegetarians. Our objective in this study was to evaluate the feasibility of using lentil flour as a raw material for the development of edible films and to investigate the effects of the glycerol concentration (C-g=1%, 1.5%, and 2%) and process temperature (T-p; 70 and 90 degrees C) on the physical properties of these films. The films were characterized via their density; water solubility; thermal, morphological, and chemical character...
Utilization of wheat bran fiber in crackers
Şahin, Ezgi; Mert, Behiç; Department of Food Engineering (2011)
Dietary fiber is a component in the structure of plants which is an important aspect of diet and nutrition. The demand of fiber has increased significantly, as consumers recognize its health benefits such as reduction of risk of colon cancer, cholesterol lowering affect, regulating blood glucose levels and low calorie intake. Therefore food manufacturers pay more attention to develop new products containing high fiber content. Of all the categories of food products, bakery products are the most common fiber...
