The mechanical and physical properties of glycerol-plasticized wheat gluten films dried at different temperatures (20, 50, and 80 degreesC) and relative humidities (35 and 70% RH) were investigated. Dispersion of wheat gluten was prepared at pH 11 in aqueous solution. Films were obtained by casting the wheat gluten suspension, followed by solvent evaporation in a temperature and relative humidity controlled chamber. Decreasing relative humidity altered most of the mechanical properties. At 35% RH, tensile strength increased when drying temperature increased. However, at 70% RH, tensile strength decreased when temperature increased. Thickness of the films decreased by increasing temperature. Hypothetical coating strength increased with increasing drying temperature at 35% FIR However, at 70% RH, a maximum value was observed at 50 degreesC. Films produced at 80 degreesC exhibited low solubility in aqueous solution. Addition of 1.5% (w/v) sodium dodecyl sulfate increased solubility of all of the films except the film dried at 50 degreesC and 70% RH. Overall, drying temperature and relative humidity affected mechanical and physical properties of the wheat gluten films. However, the effect of drying temperature was more pronounced than the effect of relative humidity.


Optimization of solid-liquid extraction of resveratrol and other phenolic compounds from milled grape canes (Vitis vinifera)
Karacabey, Erkan; Mazza, Giuseppe (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2008-08-13)
Optimization of the solid-liquid extraction conditions for trans-resveratrol, trans-E-viniferin, ferulic acid, and total phenolics from milled grape canes has been investigated. The temperature and ethanol concentration were found to be major process variables for all responses, whereas the solvent to solid ratio was found not to be significant for any of the responses studied. The yields of transresveratrol, trans-epsilon-viniferin, and total phenolics increased with increasing temperature. Maximum yields ...
Analysis of cellulase and polyphenol oxidase production by southern pine beetle associated fungi
Valiev, Abduvali; Ögel, Zümrüt Begüm; Klepzig, Kier D. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2009-09-01)
In this study, the production of extracellular enzymes by fungi associated with southern pine beetle was investigated for the first time. Cellulase and polyphenol oxidase production were analyzed for three beetle associated fungi. Only the mutualistic symbiont Entomocorticium sp. A was found to produce cellulases and polyphenol oxidase. In time course analyses of cellulase production in batch cultures, Entomocorticium sp. A showed maximum activity of 0.109 U/ml and 0.141 U/ml for total cellulase and endoglu...
Kinetic analysis of aspergillus oryzae cultivations on starch
Bayındırlı, Alev; UNGAN, S (Informa UK Limited, 1991-01-01)
Cultivation of Aspergillus oryzae on starch is described as a combination of two rate processes: Starch hydrolysis and the cellular activities of the fungi including growth, enzyme production and maintenance. Kinetic models are presented to describe growth, enzyme production, starch hydrolysis and uptake of the hydrolysis products. Numerical values of the model parameters indicated that the rate controlling step of A. oryzae growth on starch was not starch hydrolysis, but the substrate uptake process. Gluco...

The effect of temperature and soluble solids on nonenzymatic browning in clarified and concentrated apple juice was analyzed by response surface methodology. Color development at 20, 40 and 60 Brix and temperatures ranging from 70-90C were compared over a time range of 30-180 min. The browning reaction was found to be dependent on soluble solid content as well as on the reaction conditions such as temperature and time. The model combines the effect of temperature, soluble solids content and time on color ch...

The selenium content of Turkish diets was determined by Zeeman effect graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry (GFAAS). Samples, collected from two different socioeconomic groups by duplicate portion technique, were digested with concentrated nitric acid in acid bombs, and hydrogen peroxide was added for complete oxidation. The digested solutions were then analyzed by GFAAS with the nickel chemical modifier addition. The detection limit for Se(VI) was 10.5 ng/mL for aqueous standard solutions. Averag...
