Encapsulation protects sensitive food ingredients against oxygen, heat, moisture and pH until they are released to the system. In addition, it can mask the unwanted taste of nutrients that are added to the foods for fortification purposes. The studies about encapsulation of essential oils in micro or nano-size are very much limited. The objective of the study was to encapsulate the rosemary essential oil in micron size and to find the optimum coating material formulation by investigating the physicochemical properties and storage stability of microcapsules. In the wall material preparation two different ratios of maltodextrin (MD) and whey protein concentrate (WP) were used (3:1 and 1:3). The emulsions were prepared with four different core to coating ratios (1:80, 1:40, 1:20 and 1:10) and two different dextrose equivalent (DE) maltodextrins (DE:13-17 and DE:4-7). Freeze dried capsules were analyzed for their drying efficiencies, encapsulation efficiencies, surface morphologies and particle size distributions. In addition, concentrations of 1,8-cineole were determined during storage. vi Increasing WP:MD ratio was found to increase both drying and encapsulation efficiencies. Also, capsules having core to coating ratio of 1:20 gave the highest drying and encapsulation efficiency. Maltodextrin with DE:13-17 was proven to have better encapsulating properties than maltodextrin with DE:4-7. Changing DE value of MD did not have any significant effect on particle size distributions and surface morphologies of the capsules. Although maltodextrin with DE value of 4-7 provided better storage stability to the capsules for the first 30 days of storage, percent retention of 1,8-cineole in these capsules were similar to the capsules containing maltodextrin with DE value of 13-17 at the end of 40 days of storage.

Effect of ultrasound and high hydrostatic pressure (hhp) on liquefaction and quality parameters of selected honey varieties.
Basmacı, İpek; Alpas, Hami; Department of Food Engineering (2010)
Heat treatment (around 50°C) is a major step in honey filling and packaging that is applied before filtration to decrease viscosity, reduce the moisture level, to destroy yeasts, liquefy crystals and delay crystallization. As a result, formation of Hydroxy Methyl Furfural (HMF), decrease in enzymatic activity, color deterioration, decrease in viscosity and many other structural changes are observed. HMF is produced as a result of Maillard reaction and/or hexose dehydration -which is undesirable-, practicall...
CHARACTERIZATION OF ACTIVATED CARBON PRODUCED FROM ALMOND SHELL AND HAZELNUT SHELL
BALCI, S; Doğu, Timur; YUCEL, H (Wiley, 1994-08-01)
Ammonium chloride-impregnated and untreated almond shell and hazelnut shell samples were carbonized in a flow of nitrogen at relatively low temperatures. Pore structure characterization and sorption capacities of activated carbons prepared from shells of almond and hazelnut indicated that treatment with NH4Cl increased the total surface area and improved sorption characteristics. Chemical activation carried out at 350-degrees-C gave products with surface area values above 500 m2 g-1. On the other hand, the ...
Increasing shelf life of cooked beans by means of rapid cooling
Şahin, Serpil; Yesım, Soyer (null; 2015-08-10)
Microorganisms which are resistant to cooking conditions proliferate rapidly during cooling period until they are put into the refrigerator. The temperature range of 8°C-68°C at which microorganisms grow and proliferate rapidly is known as “danger zone” in literature. The objective of this study was to observe the effect of rapid cooling of hot meal on microbial load, pH and color change. Cooked white beans containing meat will be brought to 68°C at room temperature and then they will be cooled to 8°C using...
Attenuation of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) under anaerobic conditions
Kaya, Devrim; Sanin, Faika Dilek; İmamoğlu, İpek; Department of Environmental Engineering (2012)
Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are toxic and persistent anthropogenic contaminants. Concern on their adverse health effects has led to their regulation in air, water and/or soil in addition to sludge. Hence, removal of PCBs in various matrices, including transformer oils (TO) is a priority. This study aims to investigate PCB-118 and Aroclor 1254 toxicity and dechlorination by varying certain critical experimental components including electron donor (sludge or fatty acids), inocula (unacclimated or acclima...
