High Pressure Microfluidization of Agro by-product to Functionalized Dietary Fiber and Evaluation as a Novel Bakery Ingredient

Yildiz, Elif
Mert, Behiç
Functionalization through microfluidization was applied as a prospective method for the production of fibrous structures from hazelnut skin, and which was used as a novel ingredient in a model low water activity bakery product. Although hazelnut skin was used in this study, other common agro by-products such as wheat bran, corn bran, citrus pulp, etc., could be also processed. Microfluidization led to the disintegration of large particles into flaky and fibrous structures of which entanglement and higher water holding capacity resulted in noticeably different texture and rheological properties. One major advantage of utilization of the functionalized fiber was production of cookies with less water activity at comparable moisture content with control samples. Furthermore, high pressure processing released some of the phenolic compounds which were previously trapped within the cellulosic structures led to cocoa like dark color. Incorporation of the novel fibers into cookie samples slowed down retrogradation rate during the storage period.


Production of hazelnut skin fibres and utilisation in a model bakery product
Cikrikci, SEVİL; Demirkesen, I.; Mert, Behiç (Codon Publications, 2016-01-01)
Microfluidisation was used as a potential method for the production of fibrous structure from hazelnut skin (HS), and which was evaluated as an ingredient in cake as model bakery product. More specifically, effects of different amounts of microfluidised HS on rheological behaviour of cake batter and quality parameters (texture and colour) and storage characteristics of cake products were evaluated. Furthermore, performance of microfluidised HS was compared with conventionally milled HS and cacao powder for ...
Development of functional cakes to be baked in microwave-infrared combination oven
Özkahraman, Betül Canan; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil; Department of Food Engineering (2014)
The main objective of this study was to develop functional cake formulations to be baked in the microwave-infrared (MW-IR) combination oven by using legume flours. It was also aimed to compare quality of legume cakes baked in MW-IR oven with conventional oven. For this reason, oven type (conventional and microwave-infrared combination oven), baking time (4, 4.5 and 5 minutes), legume flour type (lentil, chickpea and pea) and legume flour concentration (10%, 20%, and 30%) were selected as independent variabl...
Modification of Quinoa Starch by High Hydrostatic Pressure and Ultrasonication and Assessment of Its Physicochemical Properties
Unal, Kubra; Alpas, Hami; Öztop, Halil Mecit (2023-01-20)
Quinoa starch was extracted and treated with different technologies to modify its properties. High hydrostatic pressure (HHP) at 250, 350, and 500 MPa at 20 and 40 °C and ultrasonication at 100% power with a constant pulse for 15 min were applied as modification methods. Following the treatments, functional, rheological, morphological, and structural analyses were carried out. Time domain (TD) NMR relaxometry experiments confirmed that HHP treatment caused less granule swelling of starch. NMR relaxation spe...
Development of gluten-free wafer sheet formulations
MERT, Selen; Şahin, Serpil; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm (2015-10-01)
The main objective of this study was to develop gluten-free wafer sheet formulations by replacing rice flour partially with different gluten-free flours at different ratios. Rice-corn flour blends, rice-buckwheat flour blends and rice-chestnut flour blends with different ratios (80:20, 60:40, 40:60) were used in the experiments in order to find the higher quality and more nutritional gluten-free wafer sheet formulations. As a control, wafer sheet samples containing only rice flour and only wheat flour were ...
A novel, simple, organic free preparation and characterization of water dispersible photoluminescent Cu2O nanocubes
Zahmakiran, Mehmet; Özkar, Saim; Kodaira, Tetsuya; Shiomi, Toru (Elsevier BV, 2009-02-15)
A novel method was developed for the organic and polymer free preparation of Cu2O nanocubes. Water-dispersible Cu2O nanocubes were prepared at room temperature by using a simple two steps procedure: the reduction of copper(II) sulfate by sodium borohydride generates the copper(O) nanoclusters stabilized by hydrogenphosphate towards the aggregation in aqueous solution. The hydrogen phosphate stabilized copper(0) nanoclusters initially formed are slowly oxidized by dissolved oxygen forming the Cu2O nanocubes ...
