The main objective of this study was to formulate gluten free breads based on different flours, gums, and emulsifiers for baking in infrared-microwave combination oven. In the first part of the study, the rheological properties of different gluten-free bread dough formulations containing only rice flour and rice-chestnut flour blend with different gums, gum blends and/or emulsifiers were evaluated. Power law model and Herschel–Bulkley models were found to explain the flow behaviors of rice and chestnut-rice dough formulations, respectively. The formulations with the chestnut:rice flour ratio of 30:70 promoted the desired quality parameters of gluten-free breads. Using tigernut flour in formulations improved the color of gluten-free rice breads. Furthermore, gum blend and emulsifier DATEM addition were found to be the necessary ingredients to obtain the desired physical properties in gluten-free bread formulations. In the second part of the study, Response Surface Methodology (RSM) was used to optimize formulations and infrared-microwave baking conditions for gluten-free breads. Breads containing 46.5% chestnut flour and 0.62% emulsifier and baked using 40% infrared and 30% microwave power for 9 min had comparable quality with conventionally baked ones. The effects of different flours, gums, and emulsifiers on macro- and micro-structures of the gluten-free breads baked in different ovens were studied by using image analysis technique and Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM). The highest pore area fraction values were obtained in breads prepared by replacement of 46% of rice flour with chestnut flour containing xanthan–guar gum blend–DATEM mixture and baked in an infrared–microwave combination oven. The addition of different gums and gum blends on the crumb structures of gluten-free breads were evaluated by using X-ray microtomography (X-ray μCT) and gluten-free breads prepared with the addition of xanthan, carboxyl methyl cellulose (CMC), xanthan-guar, xanthan-LBG and HPMC had higher number of smaller pores with finer crumb structure. Lastly, the effects of different formulations and storage time on staling of conventionally and infrared-microwave baked breads were studied. Firmness, moisture loss and retrogradation enthalpy values for all bread samples increased significantly during storage. Retrogradation enthalpies and total crystallinity values of breads did not show significant differences with baking method. Using chestnut flour and xanthan-guar gum blend-DATEM mixture in formulations significantly delayed staling of gluten-free breads by decreasing moisture loss, firmness, retrogradation enthalpy, and total mass crystallinity.

Development of gluten-free wafer sheet formulations
MERT, Selen; Şahin, Serpil; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm (2015-10-01)
The main objective of this study was to develop gluten-free wafer sheet formulations by replacing rice flour partially with different gluten-free flours at different ratios. Rice-corn flour blends, rice-buckwheat flour blends and rice-chestnut flour blends with different ratios (80:20, 60:40, 40:60) were used in the experiments in order to find the higher quality and more nutritional gluten-free wafer sheet formulations. As a control, wafer sheet samples containing only rice flour and only wheat flour were ...
Design of gluten free rice cake formulations for baking in infrared-microwave combination oven
Turabi, Elif; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Department of Food Engineering (2010)
The main objective of this study was to design gluten free rice cakes containing different gums and an emulsifier for baking in infrared (IR)-microwave combination oven. In the first part of the study, the effects of different gums (xanthan, guar, xanthan-guar blend, κ-carrageenan, locust bean, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) and xanthan-κ-carrageenan blend) and emulsifier blend (PurawaveTM) on physical properties of cake batters were investigated. In the second part of the study, weight loss, specific...
Development of functional cakes to be baked in microwave-infrared combination oven
Özkahraman, Betül Canan; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil; Department of Food Engineering (2014)
The main objective of this study was to develop functional cake formulations to be baked in the microwave-infrared (MW-IR) combination oven by using legume flours. It was also aimed to compare quality of legume cakes baked in MW-IR oven with conventional oven. For this reason, oven type (conventional and microwave-infrared combination oven), baking time (4, 4.5 and 5 minutes), legume flour type (lentil, chickpea and pea) and legume flour concentration (10%, 20%, and 30%) were selected as independent variabl...
Utilization of chestnut flour in gluten-free bread formulations
Demirkesen, Ilkem; Mert, Behiç; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (2010-12-01)
In this study, gluten-free bread formulations using chestnut and rice flours at different ratios (0/100, 10/90, 20/80, 30/70, 40/60, 50/50 and 100/0) were tested. In addition, the influence of hydrocolloid blend (xanthan-locustbean gum (LBG), xanthan-guar gum blend) and emulsifier DATEM on the rheological properties of dough formulations and quality parameters of breads were also investigated for the samples having chestnut/rice flour ratio of 10/90, 20/80, 30/70 and 40/60. Herschel-Bulkley model was found ...

The objective of this study was to determine the effects of different tigernut flour/rice flour ratios (0:100, 5:95, 10:90, 15:85, 20:80, and 25:75) on quality of gluten-free bread formulations baked in infrared-microwave combination and conventional ovens. The degrees of the starch gelatinization of breads baked in different ovens were also compared. Conventionally baked breads prepared with tigernut flour/rice flour ratio of 10:90 and the infrared-microwave combination-baked breads prepared with tigernut/...
