Encapsulation of vitamin B1 using double emulsion method

Yüce Altuntaş, Özlem
The main objective of the study was to encapsulate Vitamin B1 in the inner aqueous phase of water-in-oil-in-water (W/O/W) type double emulsion containing hazelnut oil as oil phase and to transfer it to food products for enrichment. It was also aimed to replace the synthetic Polyglycerol Polyricinoleate (PGPR) with lecithin and to study the influence of homogenization methods on double emulsion characteristics. The expected type of emulsion, water in oil (W/O), could not be obtained by using only lecithin so lecithin-PGPR mixture at different ratios was used as hydrophilic emulsifier. It was found that addition of lecithin (1.5 g/100 g) to PGPR (1.5 g/100 g) enhanced the stability of the double emulsion. Three different homogenization methods were applied as High Speed Homogenization (HSH), Ultrasound and Microfluidization to produce primary emulsion. It was found that the homogenization methods used in the preparation of primary emulsion influenced the physiochemical characteristics of the double emulsion. The most stable double emulsion with the smallest droplet size was obtained by HSH. Vitamin B12 was used as a marker for water soluble compounds to study the encapsulation properties. It was found that higher than 96.7% of the vitamin could be entrapped by the prepared double emulsion. Considering the results, Vitamin B12 was replaced by pH sensitive Vitamin B1 and added to carrot juice. It was determined that specific structure of double emulsion could reduce vitamin loss during storage. After two days storage, in the double emulsion system vitamin loss was 12% while it was 46% when vitamin was added directly to the juice.


Encapsulation of Caffeic Acid in Carob Bean Flour and Whey Protein-Based Nanofibers via Electrospinning
Zeren, Sema; Şahin, Serpil; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm (2022-07-01)
The purpose of this study was to introduce caffeic acid (CA) into electrospun nanofibers made of carob flour, whey protein concentrate (WPC), and polyethylene oxide (PEO). The effects of WPC concentration (1% and 3%) and CA additions (1% and 10%) on the characteristics of solutions and nanofibers were investigated. The viscosity and electrical conductivity of the solutions were examined to determine characteristics of solutions. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), thermogravimetric ...
Preparation of cross-linkedtyrosinase aggregates
Aytar, Burcu Selin; Bakır, Ufuk; Department of Chemical Engineering (2006)
The aim of this study was to prepare cross-linked enzyme aggregate (CLEA) from crude mushroom (Agaricus bisporus) extract. However, the optimization of CLEA production was performed by using pure tyrosinase. Important parameters were determined as protein, ammonium sulfate and glutaraldehyde concentrations, CLEA particle size, and cross-linking temperature and period. On the other hand, the order of ammonium sulfate and glutaraldehyde addition did not affect the yield of CLEA. Optimum CLEA preparation condi...
Encapsulation of Grape Seed Extract in Rye Flour and Whey Protein-Based Electrospun Nanofibers
Aslaner, Gizem; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (2021-03-01)
The objective of this research was to incorporate grape seed extract (GSE) into electrospun nanofibers produced from rye flour, whey protein concentrate (WPC), and polyethylene oxide (PEO). The effects of rye flour concentration (4% and 6%) and heating methods (conventional and microwave) on the properties of solutions and nanofibers were studied. Rheology results showed that microwave-heated solutions containing 6% rye flour had higher viscosity. According to the SEM images, the developed fibers obtained f...
Removing algae from stabilization pond effluents by using trickling filters
Kaya, Devrim; Dilek, Filiz Bengü; Department of Environmental Engineering (2005)
The objective of this study is to remove turbidity originating from algae present in oxidation ponds effluents by an easy and inexpensive method. For this reason, a novel lab-scale Step Feed Dual Treatment (SFDT) process was constructed and the efficiency of trickling filter (TF) to remove algae and organic matter was investigated. SFDT process developed in this study is the unique, inexpensive and new system to scavenge algae from oxidation pond effluents. In this system, influent is first treated in a sta...
Inhibitory effects of plant originated extracts on bovine lens aldose reductase
Zaimoğlu, Selin; Çoruh, Nursen; Department of Biotechnology (2004)
Aldose reductase, E.C., catalyzes the reduction of different types of aldehydes to their corresponding alcohols, and especially reduces various aldo-sugars using NADPH as the coenzyme. Under hyperglycemic conditions aldose reductase is involved in the development of diabetic complications. As a result, interest has been placed over the years on the development of potent aldose reductase inhibitors for possible use in the therapy of these severe diabetic complications. In this study, aldose reductase...
