The baby foods industry is currently seeking technologies to pasteurize products without formation of processing contaminants such as furan. This work demonstrates the applicability of high hydrostatic pressure (HHP) as a non-thermal decontamination intervention for fruit pur,e based baby foods. HHP processing was evaluated at 200, 300, and 400 MPa pressures, for 5, 10 and 15 min of treatment times at 25, 35 and 45 A degrees C. HHP application at 400 MPa, 45 A degrees C for 15 min ensured complete inactivation (about 6 log(10)) of total mesophilic aerophiles, as well as yeasts and molds. No furan was detected in HHP processed products. Thus, the key advantage of HHP over thermal processing is the ability to achieve commercially acceptable microbiological inactivation while avoiding the formation of processing contaminants such as furan.

Correlation between physical and sensorial properties of gummy confections with different formulations during storage
Tireki, Suzan; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2021-01-01)
Gummy confections are popular products formulated with sucrose, glucose syrups, gelling agents, acids, flavourings and colouring agents. They have various commercial types in terms of formulation, texture, taste and colour, however, there is inadequate investigation on storage behavior of these products. The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of glucose syrup:sucrose ratio (1.1 and 1.5), starch (0% and 1.5%) and gelatine concentration (3% and 6%) on texture profile, colour and sensory propertie...
Effects of sugar, protein and water content on wheat starch gelatinization due to microwave heating
Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Bayindirli, L (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 1999-01-01)
Understanding the interactions between sugar, starch, protein and water, which are the main components of a baked product, will advance the development of high quality, microwaveable products. This paper presents a mathematical model describing the quantitative relationships between water, sugar and protein on the gelatinization of wheat starch following 20 s of microwave heat as determined by differential scanning calorimetry. Addition of sugar decreased the degree of gelatinization of starch due to microw...
Mathematical modeling of swelling in high moisture whey protein gels
Öztop, Halil Mecit (Elsevier BV, 2011-09-01)
Gels prepared from whey proteins can be used for controlled release of nutrients or active ingredients in food systems. The objective of this study was to characterize the water uptake by these hydrophilic gels to aid in the design of release systems. Whey protein isolate (WPI) gels (17% w/w protein) of different aspect ratios were submersed in aqueous solution at pH 7.0. Modeling of mass uptake is presented in terms of Case I (Fickian diffusion) and Case II (kinetic) models. Due to the extent of swelling, ...
Effect of high hydrostatic pressure (HHP) and high dynamic pressure (HDP) on stability and rheological properties of model oil-in-water emulsions
Bigikoçin, Erman; Alpas, Hami; Mert, Behiç; Department of Food Engineering (2010)
High pressure applications are alternatives to conventional methods in food processing. They provide interesting modifications in food structures which leads to new product formulations. The aim of this study is to identify the effects of two different treatments, high hydrostatic pressure (HHP) and high dynamic pressure (HDP) on stability and rheological properties of model oil-in-water emulsions. Microfluidization was selected among the HDP homogenization techniques. The performance of each process was an...
Estimating factors for the demand of organic milk in Turkey
Gülseven, Osman (Emerald, 2018-01-01)
Purpose The purpose of this paper is to identify the sociodemographic factors that affect Turkish consumers' decision to purchase organic milk. It is also of interest to derive the demand curve for organic milk based on the consumers' stated preferences.
