Quantitative analysis of macro and micro-structure of gluten-free rice cakes containing different types of gums baked in different ovens

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 of the rice cakes. The highest pore area fraction was obtained in cakes containing xanthan and xanthan-guar blend. Cakes baked in IR-MW combination oven had higher porosity than those baked in conventional oven. Micro-structure of gluten-free rice cakes was also analyzed. According to these results, conventionally baked cakes showed more starch granule deformations. Both granular starch residues and deformed starch structure were observed together in cakes baked in IR-MW combination oven. All of the starch granules did not lose their identity and did not disintegrate completely.

In this study, the effects of chestnut flour and xanthan-guar gum blend-emulsifier DATEM mixture addition on macro- and microstructure of rice breads baked in conventional and infrared-microwave combination ovens were investigated by using the images obtained by a scanner and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Pore area fraction, pore size distribution, and roundness values of pores were determined. The highest pore area fraction values were obtained in breads prepared by replacement of 46 % of rice flour ...
The effects of xanthan and guar gums on staling of gluten-free rice cakes baked in different ovens
Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil; Meda, Venkatesh (2010-01-01)
P>The objective of this study was to determine the effects of different concentrations of xanthan and guar gums and their blends on staling of gluten-free rice cakes baked in microwave-infrared combination oven (MW-IR) and to compare the cakes with conventionally baked ones. Gums were added at concentrations of 0.3% and 1.0%. For preparation of gum blend, 0.5% xanthan gum was mixed with 0.5% guar gum. In order to understand the staling behaviour of cakes, cakes were stored at 22 +/- 2 degrees C for 120 h. X...
Optimization of Baking of Rice Cakes in Infrared-Microwave Combination Oven by Response Surface Methodology
Turabi, Elif; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (2008-03-01)
In this study, response surface methodology was used to design gluten-free cakes made from rice flour to be baked in infrared-microwave combination oven. Two types of cake formulations containing different types of gums were used in the experiments, which were xanthan gum and xanthan-guar gum blend. The independent variables were emulsifier content (0, 3, and 6% of flour weight), upper halogen lamp power (50, 60, and 70%), and baking time (7, 7.5, and 8 min). Specific volume, surface color change, firmness ...
Investigation of physicochemical properties of breads baked in microwave and infrared-microwave combination ovens during storage
Ozkoc, Semin Ozge; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil; Turabi, Elif (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2009-1-27)
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 ...
Optimisation of formulations and infrared-microwave combination baking conditions of chestnut-rice breads
Demirkesen, Ilkem; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil; Uysal, Nalan (Wiley, 2011-09-01)
The main objective of this study was to design gluten-free breads containing chestnut and rice flour and xanthan-guar gum blend to be baked in infrared-microwave combination oven. Response surface methodology (RSM) was used to optimise gluten-free bread formulations and processing conditions. Weight loss, firmness, specific volume and colour change of the breads were determined. Rice flour mixed with different proportions of chestnut flour and different emulsifier contents were used to prepare breads. The g...
