In this study, microemulsion cross-linking treatment was used on food grade potato and maize starches for preparing micro starch particles. Laser diffraction technique was introduced to measure the particle size characteristics, including the median particle diameter (d (50)), surface area mean diameter D [3, 2], volume mean diameter D [4, 3] and specific surface area of micro potato and maize starch particles. The volume distributions and number distributions were also analyzed using Mastersizer 2000 Software. The d (50), D [3, 2], D [4, 3] of the potato starch granules were reduced significantly (p < 0.05) after the microemulsion cross-linking reaction and ball-milling treatment. However, the microemulsion cross-linking treatment did not produce significant changes in the particle size characteristics of the maize starch samples.


Physicochemical and structural characterization of microfluidized and sonicated legume starches
Bitik, Ayşe; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Department of Food Engineering (2019)
Modified starches gained importance in food industry due to their improved functional properties. In this study, two legume starches (chickpea and lentil) were modified by using ultrasonication and microfluidization techniques. The objective of the study was to investigate the effects of these methods on the functional, rheological, thermal properties and particle size, morphology and crystal structure of modified starch samples. Time Domain NMR relaxometry experiments were also conducted to understand the ...
Differential scanning calorimetry determination of gelatinization rates in different starches due to microwave heating
Ndife, M; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Bayindirh, L (1998-01-01)
Wheat, corn and rice starch dispersions having water-starch ratios of 1.0:1.0, 1.5:1.0 and 2.0:1.0 (w/w) were heated in a microwave oven for 15 to 30 s and the degree of gelatinization was determined by differential scanning calorimetry. During 15 to 25 s of microwave heating, corn starch gelatinization rates were significantly lower and slower than wheat and rice starch rates. Beyond 25 s of heating no significant difference in the degree of gelatinization was detected. Microwave heating was nonuniform and...
Shear-thickening properties of waxy maize starch dispersions
Wang, Bao; Wang, Li-jun; Li, Dong; Zhou, Yu-guang; Özkan, Necati (2011-12-01)
The influences of starch concentration and test conditions on the shear-thickening behavior of waxy maize starch (WMS) dispersions were investigated. During steady shear tests, both the concentration of WMS and test temperature influenced the shear thickening behavior of the WMS dispersions significantly. The critical shear rate for shear thickening was increased with the increasing of temperature and the decreasing of WMS concentration. No effect of gap size on the shear thickening of the WMS dispersions w...
Effects of different ovens and enzymes on quality parameters of bread
Keskin, Semin Özge; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Department of Food Engineering (2003)
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 ...
Effect of high hydrostatic pressure on seed germination, microbial quality, anatomy-morphology and physiological characteristics of garden cress (Lepidium sativum) seedlings
İŞLEK, Cemil; Altuner, Ergin Murat; Ceter, Talip; Alpas, Hami (Informa UK Limited, 2013-06-01)
High hydrostatic pressure is a non-thermal food processing technology that is found to increase the percentage of germination, decrease the germination time and improve the microbial quality of seeds. In this study, pressures of 100-400MPa for 10min at 30 degrees C are used to compare the percentage of germination, the microbial quality of seeds, chlorophyll a and b, and total phenolic compounds concentrations in seedlings, and the anatomy-morphology characteristics of garden cress. Enhanced reductions of t...
