This study was aimed at reducing patulin content of apple juice using a non-thermal method, namely pulsed-high hydrostatic pressure (p-HHP). Commercially available clear apple juice was contaminated artificially with different concentrations of patulin (5, 50 and 100 ppb). Then, the samples were processed 5 min at different pressure treatments (300-500 MPa) in combination with different temperatures (30-50 degrees C) and pulses (6 pulses x 50 s and 2 pulses x 150 s). To compare the impact of pulses, single pulse of high hydrostatic pressure (HHP) treatment was also applied with the same pressure/temperature combinations and holding time. Results indicated that pressure treatment in combination with mild heat and pulses reduced the levels of patulin in clear apple juice up to 62.11%. However, reduction rates did not follow a regular pattern. p-HHP was found to be more effective in low patulin concentrations, whereas HHP was more effective for high patulin concentrations. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study using p-HHP to investigate the reduction of patulin content in apple juice.


Evaluation of high hydrostatic pressure effects on bovine red blood cells and platelets

The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of high hydrostatic pressure (HHP) on the stability of red blood cells (RBCs) and platelets. Bovine blood cells (n=5) were treated with the pressure of 55, 110, 154 and 220MPa at 25C for 5min. Light microscopy, atomic force microscopy and flow cytometry studies revealed that RBCs were morphologically stable up until the 220MPa pressure treatments, at which surface modifications were observed. The platelets were found to be less stable than RBCs. HHP...
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...
The effect of chitosan-based edible film and high hydrostatic pressure process on the microbiological and chemical quality of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss Walbaum) fillets during cold storage (4 +/- 1 degrees C)
Guenlue, Ali; SIPAHIOGLU, Sinem; Alpas, Hami (Informa UK Limited, 2014-01-02)
The objective of this study is to determine the changes in the chemical and microbiological quality of fresh rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss Walbaum) fillets during storage at 4 +/- 1 degrees C as a result of chitosan-based edible film coating, vacuum packaging and high pressure application processes. Chemical (pH, total volatile basic nitrogen and thiobarbituric acid index) and microbiological (total mesophilic and total psychrophilic microorganism) shelf life analyses were carried out in 4-day interval...
Improvement of organoclay dispersion into polystyrene-based nanocomposites by incorporation of SBS and maleic anhydride-grafted SBS
Dike, Ali Sinan; Yılmazer, Ülkü (SAGE Publications, 2020-04-01)
In this study, organoclay-containing polystyrene (PS)-based nanocomposites were fabricated by extrusion in the presence of thermoplastic elastomer modifiers. Styrene-butadiene-styrene (SBS) rubber was used as the elastomeric compatibilizer and maleic anhydride (MA) was grafted onto SBS rubber at different ratios. Grafting was made via melt blending. Cloisite (R) 30B was used as the organoclay and it was added to PS and PS/SBS blends using a corotating twin-screw extruder, followed by injection molding. Clay...
Mathematical expression of the temperature profile and experimental determination of compression heating of ethylene glycol during high hydrostatic pressure processing
Buzrul, S.; Alpas, Hami; Largeteau, A.; Demazeau, G. (Informa UK Limited, 2007-03-01)
In this study, we aimed to describe the temperature profile in the pressure vessel and the compression heating during high hydrostatic pressure (HHP) processing. Regression coefficients (R-2), root mean square error (RMSE) values and residual plots suggested that fourth-order polynomial function produced reasonable fits to define the temperature profile for all the pressures studied (300-600 MPa). If all the coefficients of this empirical model are determined, initial and final temperatures, a value close t...
