Effect of microfluidized onion skin addition on the quality of extrudates

Bilgin, Elçin
The objective of the study was to investigate the effect of microfluidized onion skin addition on the features of expansion characteristics, water absorption index, water solubility index, color, texture and sensory of extruded products. In addition, addition of microfluidized and non – microfluidized onion skins to extruded products were compared. Increasing microfluidized onion skin content in the samples caused a reduction in sectional expansion index (SEI), volumetric expansion index (VEI) and porosity of extruded samples while causing an increase in bulk density of extruded samples. Increasing microfluidized onion skin content in the extrudates did not cause any significant change in water absorption index (WAI) and water solubility index (WSI) values. Addition of microfluidized onion skin to feed decreased lightness while increased redness and yellowness of extrudates. Addition of microfludizied onion skin increased maximum stress, hardness, and brittleness. After 2% microfluidized onion skin addition, lower scores were observed in sensory data of extrudates. SEI, VEI, porosity, bulk density, WAI, WSI, lightness values, maximum stress, hardness, fracturability and sensory data of extrudates with, microfluidized and nonmicrofluidized onion skin added samples at 6% indicated no significant difference. However, there was significant difference between microfluidized and nonmicrofluidized onion skins added samples in redness and yellowness values. The results indicate that microfluidized onion skins at low concentration can be added to feed samples to increase the fiber content of the extrudates.

Ozbas, Kazim Esber; Hicyilmaz, Cahit; Kök, Mustafa Verşan; Bilgen, Sedat (2000-01-01)
In this research, the results of a study on the combustion characteristics of Soma lignite before and after cleaning are presented. Non-isothermal thermogravimetry (TG/DTG) experiments were carried out for four different size fractions. Experiments were performed from ambient to 900 degrees C in air atmosphere at 10 degrees C/min heating rate. TG/DTG curves revealed three reaction regions. The first region is due to the evaporation of moisture in the coal. The second region can be called the primary reactio...
Effect of initial water content and calcination temperature on photocatalytic properties of TiO2 nanopowders synthesized by the sol-gel process
Agartan, Lutfi; Kapusuz, Derya; PARK, JONGEE; Öztürk, Abdullah (2015-12-01)
The effects of initial water content and calcination temperature on sol gel synthesized TiO2 powders were studied. Mother solutions had water/Ti-precursor mole ratios (R ratio) of 1, 5, 10, and 50. Dried aerogels were calcined for 3 h at temperatures of 300, 400, and 500 degrees C to obtain crystallized TiO2 nanopowders in the range of 15-30 nm. PE-scanning electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction techniques were employed to investigate the morphological and structural properties of the nanopowders synthes...
Effect of starvation on the adhesive properties of xenobiotic degrading bacteria
Sanin, SL; Sanin, Faika Dilek; Bryers, JD (Elsevier BV, 2003-01-31)
The purpose of this study was to observe the effects of different starvation conditions on the surface characteristics and adhesive properties of bacteria. Three pure culture xenobiotic degrading bacteria were used in this study: Pseudomonas sp. strain A, Pseudomonas sp. strain D and Rhodococcus corallinus strain 11. These microorganisms were selected for to their ability to degrade cyanuric acid, which is a derivative of s-Triazine, a common herbicide. These microorganisms were separately starved for carbo...
Effect of extrusion on bioactive compounds found in artichoke leaf powder and on their in vitro bioaccessibilities
Güven, Özge; Şensoy, İlkay; Şenyuva, Hamide Z.; Department of Food Engineering (2016)
The functional properties of extruded products can be enhanced by addition of herbal ingredients. In this study, artichoke leaf powder (ALP) was added to extrudates, at 3%, 6% and 9% concentrations, to increase amount of bioactive nutrients. Aim of the study was to investigate the effect of extrusion on functional components and in vitro bioaccessibility of selected phenolic compounds. Extrusion feed flow rate was 55 ± 1 g/min, screw speed was 250 rpm and barrel temperature zones were set at 80°C, 90°C, 130...
Effect of limestone addition on radiative heat transfer during co-firing of high-sulfur content lignite with biomass in fluidized bed combustors
Ates, CİHAN; Selçuk, Nevin; Külah, Görkem (2018-01-01)
In this study, influence of limestone addition on radiative heat transfer during co-firing of high-sulfur content lignite with olive residue in the freeboard of 300 kW(t) Atmospheric Bubbling Fluidized Bed Combustor (ABFBC) is investigated by using an in-house developed radiation code based on Method of Lines (MOL) solution of Discrete Ordinates Method (DOM). The freeboard is treated as a 3D rectangular enclosure containing gray, absorbing, emitting gas with absorbing, emitting, anisotropically scattering p...
