The objective of this study was to determine the possibility of using Mixolab((R)) to predict the cake baking quality of different wheat flours. Mixolab((R)) data were also compared with various flour quality characteristics. The correlations between Alveoconsistograph data and the cake quality characteristics were not significant. Therefore, Alveoconsistograph test does not seem to be useful to predict the cake quality of the flour samples. Mixolab((R)) characteristics C2, C3, C4 and C5 were found to be significantly correlated with volume index while C5 was correlated with hardness of cakes. The parameters C2 to C5 represent the end point of the corresponding mixing stages. The flour samples which gave higher cake hardness values had higher C5 values and the samples with lower cake volumes had higher C2, C3, C4 and C5 values. It seems to be possible to estimate the texture and volume of cakes by these values. Therefore, Mixolab((R)) seems to be a useful tool to predict the cake making quality of flour samples.

THE EFFECT OF DIFFERENT FORMULATIONS ON PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF CAKES BAKED WITH MICROWAVE AND NEAR INFRARED-MICROWAVE COMBINATIONS
Sakiyan, Ozge; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil; Meda, Venkatesh (2007-01-01)
The aim of this study was to determine the effect of different formulations on color and textural characteristics of different cakes during baking in microwave and near infrared-microwave combination ovens. For comparison, cakes were also baked in conventional ovens. Color and hardness for both types of baking schemes were found to be dependent on formulation. Cakes containing Simplesse (TM), a fat replacer consisting mostly of whey protein, baked in microwave and near infrared-microwave combination ovens w...
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...
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 ...
Optimization of Baking of Rice Cakes in Infrared-Microwave Combination Oven by Response Surface Methodology
Turabi, Elif; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (2008-03-01)
In this study, response surface methodology was used to design gluten-free cakes made from rice flour to be baked in infrared-microwave combination oven. Two types of cake formulations containing different types of gums were used in the experiments, which were xanthan gum and xanthan-guar gum blend. The independent variables were emulsifier content (0, 3, and 6% of flour weight), upper halogen lamp power (50, 60, and 70%), and baking time (7, 7.5, and 8 min). Specific volume, surface color change, firmness ...
A Study on Degree of Starch Gelatinization in Cakes Baked in Three Different Ovens

The main objective of the study was to determine the effects of different baking ovens and different cake formulations on the degree of starch gelatinization during cake baking. Baking was performed in microwave, infrared-microwave combination, and conventional ovens. Starch gelatinization levels of fat free, 25% fat, and 25% Simplesse (TM)-containing cake samples were examined using differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) and rapid visco analyzer (RVA). Both DSC and RVA results showed that increasing bakin...
