Effect of freezing rate and storage on the texture and quality parameters of strawberry and green bean frozen in home type freezer

The focus of interest of this research was freezing preservation of green bean and strawberry in a home type freezer. Freezing time and freezing rates were determined from the cooling curves obtained experimentally. Home type freezing provided slow freezing rate. NMR Relaxometry measurements showed that freezing did not keep the cellular integrity in strawberries and green beans due to structural damage and extracellular ice formation. Packaged samples were stored at -27 degrees C for approximately 3 months. Although total phenolic content, antioxidant activity and color changes of samples were not significant, significant L-ascorbic acid losses were determined for 13 weeks' frozen storage of strawberries and green beans. Home freezing should be done at appropriate freezing rate to preserve the texture and the nutritional content of fruits and vegetables. (c) 2018 Elsevier Ltd and IIR. All rights reserved.


Effect of different freezing rates on the texture and quality parameters of selected fruit and vegetable
Bulut, Merve; Bayındırlı, Alev; Mert, Behiç; Department of Food Engineering (2015)
The freezing rates of strawberry and green bean were determined at -23, -26 and -27°C in a home type freezer. For the estimation of freezing rate, the temperature-time data was obtained with a thermocouple embedded inside the sample. The freezing rates of strawberry were 0.75, 0.93 and 1.02 cm/h at -23, -26, and -27°C, respectively. For green bean, the freezing rates were 0.36, 0.50, 0.57 cm/h at -23, -26, -27°C, respectively. In three freezing rates studied, cellular integrity was examined with NMR relaxom...
Effects of high hydrostatic pressure on microflora and some quality attributes of grape juice
MERT, Mecnun; BUZRUL, Sencer; Alpas, Hami (2013-03-01)
Red and white grape juices were treated with high hydrostatic pressure (HHP) at three different pressures, temperature and time values to investigate the effects of HHP on natural microflora and some quality attributes of the juices. Increased pressure, temperature and time showed significant effect on the microbial reduction and no microbial growth were observed in HHP-treated grape juices up to 90 days. HHP had little or no effect on pH and color of the juices. Although 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) forma...
Effects of different ovens and enzymes on quality parameters of bread
Keskin, Semin Özge; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Department of Food Engineering (2003)
The main objective of the study was to determine the effects of enzymes on quality of breads baked in halogen lamp-microwave combination, microwave and conventional oven. It was also aimed to determine the optimum processing conditions in these ovens. In the first part of the study, as independent variables, baking time, baking temperature for conventional oven; microwave power for microwave oven and microwave power and halogen power for combination oven was used. Weight loss, specific volume, firmness and ...
Effect of biomass pretreatment conditions on the glucose and biodegradable film production from lignocellulosic wastes
Bahçegül, Erinç; Bölükbaşı, Ufuk; Özkan, Necati; Department of Biotechnology (2013)
Process parameters during the conversion of lignocellulosic agricultural wastes including corn cobs and cotton stalk into glucose and biodegradable polymeric materials were investigated. The investigated parameters were pretreatment type, pretreatment temperature, lignocellulosic biomass particle size prior to pretreatment, hemicellulose extraction temperature, salt type, salt concentration and polymer processing technique. Pretreatments applied to corn cobs including dilute acid, alkaline and ionic liquid ...
Effects of processing on onion skin powder added extrudates
Tonyali, Bade; Şensoy, İlkay; KARAKAYA, SİBEL (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-09-01)
It is possible to enhance the functional properties of extruded products with the inclusion of fruit and vegetable by-products. Onion skin, a rich source of quercetin and fiber, is considered as waste in the industry and can be used as an alternative ingredient to improve the nutritional value of the extruded products. Three levels (3, 6, and 9%) of onion skin powder (OSP) were added to wheat flour and compared with control (0% OSP). The effect of the extrusion process on accessible quercetin, total phenoli...
