Staling of breads baked in different ovens (microwave, infrared-microwave combination and conventional) was investigated with the help of mechanical (compression measurements), physicochemical (DSC, X-ray, FTIR) and rheological (RVA) methods. The effect of xanthan-guar gum blend addition on bread staling was also studied. Xanthan-guar gum blend at 0.5% concentration was used in bread formulation. The gums were mixed at equal concentrations to obtain the blend. After baking, the staling parameters of breads were monitored over 5 days storage. During storage, it was seen that hardness, retrogradation enthalpies, setback viscosity, crystallinity values, and FTIR outputs related to starch retrogradation of bread samples increased, whereas FTIR outputs related to moisture content of samples decreased significantly with time. The hardness, retrogradation enthalpy, setback viscosity, and crystallinity values of microwave-baked samples were found to be highest among other heating modes. Using IR-microwave combination heating made it possible to produce breads with similar staling degrees as conventionally baked ones in terms of retrogradation enthalpy and FTIR outputs related to starch retrogradation. Addition of xanthan-guar gum blend decreased hardness, retrogradation enthalpy and total mass crystallinity values of bread samples showing that staling was delayed.

Assessment of proofing of bread dough in the microwave oven
Ozmutlu, O; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (2001-01-01)
The effects of different proofing times in the microwave oven on the quality of microwave baked breads were investigated. The proofing height of the dough, specific volume and the firmness of the breads were found to be dependent on proofing time. When emulsifiers were added, the optimum proofing condition in the microwave oven was found to be 6 minutes at 10% power. The effects of different emulsifiers on the properties of the dough and, the volume and the firmness of the microwave-baked breads were compar...
Quantitative analysis of macro and micro-structure of gluten-free rice cakes containing different types of gums baked in different ovens
Turabi, Elif; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (2010-11-01)
The effects of different gums on macro-structure of gluten-free rice cakes baked in conventional and infrared-microwave (IR-MW) combination ovens were investigated by using the images obtained by scanner and scanning electron microscopy in this study. The gum types used were xanthan, guar, locust bean, kappa-carrageenan and xanthan-guar blend. Cake containing no gum was used as control. It was observed that both addition of different types of gums affected the pore area fraction and percent number of pores ...

Uysal, Nalan; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Department of Food Engineering (2009)
The main objective of this study was to optimize the roasting conditions of hazelnuts in microwave-infrared and microwave-convective heating combination ovens by using response surface methodology. It was also aimed to construct regression models for the prediction of quality parameters of hazelnuts as a function of processing conditions. The independent variables were microwave power (10, 30, 50, 70 and 90%), upper-lower infrared power (10, 30, 50, 70 and 90%) and roasting time (2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 min) for m...

The main objective of the study was to determine the effects of enzymes on quality of breads baked in halogen lamp-microwave combination, microwave and conventional oven. It was also aimed to determine the optimum processing conditions in these ovens. In the first part of the study, as independent variables, baking time, baking temperature for conventional oven; microwave power for microwave oven and microwave power and halogen power for combination oven was used. Weight loss, specific volume, firmness and ...
Investigation of physical properties of different cake formulations during baking with microwave and infrared-microwave combination
Şakıyan Demirkol, Özge; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Department of Food Engineering (2007)
The main objective was to determine the variation of physical properties of different cake formulations during baking in microwave and infrared-microwave combination ovens. In the first part of the study, rheological and dielectric properties of cake batter with different formulations were determined. Different concentrations of fat and different types of emulsifier and fat replacer were used. The variation of formulation had a significant effect on the apparent viscosity of the cake batter. Cake batter was...
