Effect of added ingredients on the acrylamide level and quality of extrudates

Yavuz, Merve
Ingredients which are NaCl, CaCl2, ascorbic acid, citric acid, glycine, cysteine and quercetin were blended at two different concentrations with whole wheat flour, mixed with D-glucose monohydrate (100:5, w/w), and fed to twin screw extruder. Effect of these ingredients on acrylamide level and quality characteristics of extrudates were investigated. Set zone temperatures were 80 ± 2, 90 ± 2, 115 ± 2 and 150 ± 2 oC with 180 rpm screw speed and feed flow rate of 30 g/min during extrusion. Feed moisture content was 18.24 ± 0.48%. Drying process was performed at 150 oC for 15 min after the extrusion process. Lower acrylamide level were observed with added ingredients with differences in degree of reduction. Increasing concentration led to further decrease in acrylamide level for all of the ingredients. Among the ingredients studied highest acrylamide reduction was obtained with 5 g/kg cysteine addition while lowest reduction was obtained with 7.26 g/kg citric acid and 13.36 g/kg ascorbic acid. Highest sectional expansion index (SEI) was obtained with 50 g/kg CaCl2 while the lowest was obtained by 66.80 g/kg ascorbic acid when compared to control. Longitudinal expansion index vi (LEI) reached the highest value at the addition of 66.80 g/kg ascorbic acid while the lowest value was obtained by 10 g/kg CaCl2. 50 g/kg CaCl2 or 36.30 g/kg citric acid addition did not cause any significant change in volume expansion index (VEI) compared to control. The highest bulk density found at the addition of 66.80 g/kg ascorbic acid. Addition of 1 g/kg glycine, 10 g/kg NaCl, 36.30 g/kg citric acid or 50 g/kg CaCl2 did not affect the bulk density when compared to control and gave the lowest values of bulk density in extrudates. In terms of lightness, ascorbic acid addition at the level of 66.80 g/kg gave the highest L* value and lowest browning index in extrudates while the lowest L* value was observed with 5 g/kg glycine addition with the highest browning index. In conclusion, data indicated that added ingredients decreased the acylamide level at a certain level while affecting the quality parameters of the extrudates to some extend.


Effect of concentrated flaxseed protein on the stability and rheological properties of soybean oil-in-water emulsions
Wang, Bo; Li, Dong; Wang, Li-Jun; Özkan, Necati (2010-02-01)
Flaxseed protein concentrate containing-mucilage (FPCCM) was used to stabilize soybean oil-in-water emulsions. The effects of FPCCM concentration (0.5, 1.0, 1.5% w/v) and oil-phase volume fraction (5, 10, 20% v/v) on emulsion stability and theological properties of the soybean oil-in-water emulsions were investigated. Z-average diameter, zeta-potential, creaming index and theological properties of emulsions were determined. The result showed that FPCCM concentration significantly affected zeta-potential, cr...
Influence of pH conditions on metabolic regulations in serine alkaline protease production by Bacillus licheniformis
Çalık, Pınar; Calik, G; Ozdamar, TH (2002-10-03)
The effects of the controlled and uncontrolled pH conditions, as well as of the value of initial pH in the range of 7-7.5, on serine alkaline protease (SAP) production by Bacillus licheniformis were investigated on a defined medium with the single carbon source glucose in batch bioreactors. Besides uncontrolled pH operations, growth phase, production phase, and entire process control strategies were also applied. The concentrations of the product (SAP) and by-products, i.e. neutral protease, amylase, amino ...
Effects of natural copigment sources in combination with sweeteners on the stability of anthocyanins in sour cherry nectars
Ertan, Kübra; ÖZKAN, MEHMET (2019-10-01)
Effects of various co-pigment sources [gallic acid (GA), rose leaf extract (RLE), cherry stem extract (CSE), pomegranate rind extract (PRE) and green tea extract (GTE)] on anthocyanin content, colour, and turbidity in sour cherry nectar (SCN), sweetened with sucrose (SCNS), maltose syrup (SCNM) or honey (SCNH), were investigated during storage at 20 degrees C. Co-pigment sources were associated with increases in lambda(max) (up to 4.1 nm), colour density (up to 22%), and polymeric colour (up to 1.7 times). ...
Effects of spray drying temperature and additives on the stability of serine alkaline protease powders
Namaldi, Aysegul; Çalık, Pınar; Uludağ, Yusuf (2006-01-01)
In this study, after production by recombinant Bacillus subtilis (BGSC-1A751), carrying pHV1431:: subc gene in the complex medium and separation of solids from the fermentation broth, serine alkaline protease (SAP) was dried in order to investigate the stabilization during spray drying and subsequent storage. The effect of air inlet temperature of the spray dryer between T = 70 and 130 degrees C and the effect of protective additives, glucose and maltodextrin, at 0-2% (w/v) on SAP activity during spray dryi...

Mature apricots were coated with different concentrations of a mixture containing sucrose polyesters (Semperfresh(TM) fruit coating) to determine the effect of that coating on shelf-life, post-storage life and quality of apricots. Respiration rates, weight loss, colour change, variations in soluble solids, ascorbic acid content, titratable acidity and pH of apricots were effectively reduced by both the 10 g litre(-1) and 15 g litre(-1) concentrations during ambient storage. After 10 days of cold storage bot...
