Utilization of Beeswax Oleogel-Shortening Mixtures in Gluten-Free Bakery Products

Demirkesen, Ilkem
Mert, Behiç
Formulating gluten-free bakery products with acceptable physical properties generally requires a high amount of fat. As the fat used in these products is often high in saturated fatty acids, the objective of this study was to evaluate beeswax (BW) containing oleogels for partial replacement of the shortening in gluten-free aerated products. Oleogels prepared with BW were cocrystallized with a commercial cake shortening in the laboratory scale crystallization unit. Then, the resulting blends were evaluated in the gluten-free cake formulations. When the BW oleogel was used alone, the overrun values of the batter samples decreased, indicating reduced air-holding ability. Product porosity and specific volume of the samples were also diminished with complete replacement of the shortening with BW oleogel. Nevertheless, 45%, 30%, and 15% replacement of the shortening with BW oleogel resulted in batter and baked product properties comparable to those of the control products. Rheological and textural measurements, microscopy, and bubble size distribution suggested that gradual replacement of shortening with oleogels may be an alternative method for a partial reduction of saturated fat without altering the physical properties of gluten-free aerated products.


Pilot scale wheat germ stabilization in a spouted bed
Oymak, Mert Mehmet; Kıncal, N. Suzan; Department of Chemical Engineering (2006)
Wheat germ, a nutritionally rich by product of wheat milling, has poor storage stability due to its content of essential fatty acids along with oxidative enzymes. A pilot scale conventional spouted bed was designed and constructed as a high temperature short time treatment unit to bring about drying and roasting effects. By facilitating the use of high temperature inlet air, yet maintaining the bed solids at a temperature below the degradation temperature, spouted bed dryers achieve thermal efficiencies un...
Investigation of physico-chemical properties of soy proteins glycated with d-psicose
Beylikçi, Sermet Can; Öztop, Halil Mecit; Department of Food Engineering (2019)
Proteins are one of the most essential food components that is constantly used by food industry because of their functional properties as well as their nutritional value. Soy protein has become popular among the usable protein resources because of its various functional properties such as foaming, gelling, emulsifying and water holding capacities. However, certain drawbacks of soy protein like limited solubility especially in acidic environment, emerge the need for modification for further use in broader va...
Chemocatalytic Upgrading of Tailored Fermentation Products Toward Biodiesel
SREEKUMAR, Sanil; Baer, Zachary C.; GROSS, Elad; Padmanaban, Sasisanker; GOULAS, Konstantinos; Günbaş, Emrullah Görkem; ALAYOGLU, Selim; Blanch, Harvey W.; Clark, Douglas S.; Toste, F. Dean (Wiley, 2014-09-01)
Biological and chemocatalytic processes are tailored in order to maximize the production of sustainable biodiesel from lignocellulosic sugar. Thus, the combination of hydrotalcite-supported copper(II) and palladium(0) catalysts with a modification of the fermentation from acetone-butanol-ethanol to isopropanol-butanol-ethanol predictably produces higher concentrations of diesel-range components in the alkylation reaction.
Role of ‘D-allulose’ in a starch based composite gel matrix
İlhan, Esmanur; Ogawa, Masahiro; Öztop, Halil Mecit (Elsevier BV, 2020-01-15)
Type of sugar and gelling agents used in confectionery formulations have vital importance since they directly influence physicochemical properties during storage. In this study, the effect of a non-caloric rare sugar, D-allulose (formerly called D-psicose) on the starch based confectionery gels were investigated in the presence and absence of soy protein isolate (SPI) using different experimental techniques for 28 days. For characterization of the formulized gel systems, common techniques were used (SEM, DS...
Comparison of Fenitrothion and Trifluralin Adsorption on Organo-Zeolites and Activated Carbon. Part I: Pesticides Adsorption Isotherms on Adsorbents
LÜLE ŞENÖZ, Güzide Meltem; Atalay, Mustafa Ümit (Informa UK Limited, 2014-07-04)
In the past decades, natural zeolites have found a important role in adsorption applications due to their local availability and low cost preparation. In this study, surface of natural zeolite sample was modified by using cationic surfactants in order to investigate its adsorption capacity to remove pesticides from wastewater. Data obtained from adsorption studies on organo-zeolites were compared with data obtained from those on activated carbon. To determine the adsorption process and properties, the effec...
