Image Analysis of Gluten-free Breads Prepared with Chestnut and Rice Flour and Baked in Different Ovens

2013-07-01
In this study, the effects of chestnut flour and xanthan-guar gum blend-emulsifier DATEM mixture addition on macro- and microstructure of rice breads baked in conventional and infrared-microwave combination ovens were investigated by using the images obtained by a scanner and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Pore area fraction, pore size distribution, and roundness values of pores were determined. The highest pore area fraction values were obtained in breads prepared by replacement of 46 % of rice flour with chestnut flour containing xanthan-guar gum blend-DATEM mixture and baked in an infrared-microwave combination oven. On the other hand, rice breads containing no additives or chestnut flour had the lowest pore area fraction values. Infrared-microwave combination baking increased both pore area fraction values and total number of pores. Infrared-microwave combination baking caused approximately 23-28 % increase in number of the small pores (0-5 mm(2)) in rice breads and 71 % increase in number of the large pores (> 10 mm(2)) in chestnut-rice breads. The fiber content and larger starch granules of chestnut flour contributed towards the stabilization of gas bubbles resulting in better crumb structure. More homogenous pore distributions were observed when additives and an infrared-microwave combination oven were used. When microstructure of gluten-free breads was investigated, it was seen that starch granules in chestnut-rice breads baked in an infrared-microwave combination oven did not disintegrate completely.

Quantitative analysis of macro and micro-structure of gluten-free rice cakes containing different types of gums baked in different ovens
Turabi, Elif; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (2010-11-01)
The effects of different gums on macro-structure of gluten-free rice cakes baked in conventional and infrared-microwave (IR-MW) combination ovens were investigated by using the images obtained by scanner and scanning electron microscopy in this study. The gum types used were xanthan, guar, locust bean, kappa-carrageenan and xanthan-guar blend. Cake containing no gum was used as control. It was observed that both addition of different types of gums affected the pore area fraction and percent number of pores ...
Quality of Gluten-Free Bread Formulations Baked in Different Ovens
Demirkesen, Ilkem; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (2013-03-01)
The objective of this study was to determine the effects of different tigernut flour/rice flour ratios (0:100, 5:95, 10:90, 15:85, 20:80, and 25:75) on quality of gluten-free bread formulations baked in infrared-microwave combination and conventional ovens. The degrees of the starch gelatinization of breads baked in different ovens were also compared. Conventionally baked breads prepared with tigernut flour/rice flour ratio of 10:90 and the infrared-microwave combination-baked breads prepared with tigernut/...
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 ...
Formulation of Chestnut Cookies and their Rheological and Quality Characteristics
Demirkesen, Ilkem (2016-08-01)
The influences of chestnut flour at different levels (0, 20, 40, 60, 80 and 100%) on the rheological properties of rice dough formulations and the quality parameters of gluten-free cookies were evaluated. Elevated flour replacement levels led to increases in extensional viscosity values reflecting higher force requirement to deform dough samples. Similarly, replacement of rice flour with chestnut flour led to higher complex moduli values. Cookie samples prepared by replacement of 40% rice flour with chestnu...
The effects of xanthan and guar gums on staling of gluten-free rice cakes baked in different ovens
Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil; Meda, Venkatesh (2010-01-01)
P>The objective of this study was to determine the effects of different concentrations of xanthan and guar gums and their blends on staling of gluten-free rice cakes baked in microwave-infrared combination oven (MW-IR) and to compare the cakes with conventionally baked ones. Gums were added at concentrations of 0.3% and 1.0%. For preparation of gum blend, 0.5% xanthan gum was mixed with 0.5% guar gum. In order to understand the staling behaviour of cakes, cakes were stored at 22 +/- 2 degrees C for 120 h. X...
