Effects of serving size, gender, age, tea type, tea-making technique and water quality on the sensory attributes (appearance, aroma and taste), overall acceptability and preference of Rooibos tea were investigated. In general, there were significant effects of age and main factor interactions on the attributes and product acceptability (P <= 0.05). The interaction of serving size, gender and age affected the acceptability of Rooibos (P <= 0.05). Although there was significant difference between natural and vanilla-flavored tea in terms of color, clarity, odor and taste (P <= 0.05), no difference was observed in the product acceptability (P > 0.05). The tea-making technique only affected the odor with traditionally brewed tea having lower intensity scores than the infused tea. The tea prepared using natural spring water was found to be clearer and had higher acceptability, scores than the tea prepared using tap water (P > 0.05). There was no existing significant preference for the natural Rooibos over the vanilla-flavored one, and the traditionally brewed tea over the infused one; however the tea prepared using the spring water was preferred over the one prepared using tap water.


Effects of a bacteriocin-like substance produced by Leuconostoc mesenteroides subsp. cremoris on spoilage strain Lactobacillus fructivorans and various pathogens
YURDUGÜL, SEYHUN; Bozoglu, Faruk (Wiley, 2008-01-01)
Certain lactic acid bacteria present in the natural flora of the wine fermentation medium perform the malolactic fermentation process and other biochemical activities which lead to the formation of the outstanding aroma and bouquet of wine. However, because of the spoilage phenomena caused also by certain lactic cultures, off-odours formed via metabolic side reactions cause severe economic losses in the wine industry. Several control mechanisms were introduced in order to eliminate these spoilage cultures, ...
Effects of different emulsifier types, fat contents, and gum types on retardation of staling of microwave-baked cakes
Seyhun, N; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (Wiley, 2003-08-01)
The effects of different types of emulsifiers, gums, and fat contents on the retardation of staling of microwave-baked cakes were investigated. First, different types of emulsifiers (DATEM, Lecigran, and Purawave) at three different fat contents (50%, 25%, and 0%) were added to cake formulations to retard staling of microwave-baked cakes. Then, three types of gums (guar gum, xanthan gum, and methylcellulose) were added to the optimum formulations chosen. As a control, cakes formulated without any emulsifier...
Monitoring the effects of divalent ions (Mn+2 and Ca+2) in heat-set whey protein gels
Öztop, Halil Mecit; MCCARTHY, Michael J.; ROSENBERG, Moshe (Elsevier BV, 2014-04-01)
Exploring the effects of cations in whey protein-based gels (WPG) is of importance when these gels are used for controlled release applications in food systems. The objective of this study was to evaluate both water uptake and cation release from heat-set WPGs. Magnetic Resonance Imaging and NMR relaxometry were employed to study the uptake and release. A non-paramagnetic (Ca+2) and a paramagnetic cation (Mn+2) were incorporated into the WPG as model divalent cations. Cylindrical pieces of WPGs with mangane...
Usage of enzymes in a novel baking process
Keskin, SO; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (Wiley, 2004-04-01)
In this study, the effects of different enzymes (a-amylase, xylanase, lipase, protease) on quality of breads baked in different ovens (microwave, halogen lamp-microwave combination and conventional oven) were investigated. It was also aimed to reduce the quality problems of breads baked in microwave ovens with the usage of enzymes. As a control, bread dough containing no enzyme was used. Specific volume, firmness and color of the breads were measured as quality parameters. All of the enzymes were found to b...
Effects of buckwheat flour, gums and proteins on rheological properties of gluten-free batters and structure of cakes
Yıldız, Eda; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (Codon Publications, 2018-01-01)
The main objective of the study is to determine the effects of buckwheat flour concentration and different gum types (xanthan, guar gum) or proteins (soy protein and whey protein) on rheological properties of gluten-free cake batters and physical properties of cakes (weight loss, porosity, specific volume, hardness and macro structure). Gum containing batters exhibited higher apparent viscosities. More uniform distribution of gas cells were observed in whey protein containing samples compared to other batte...
