In this study, two different groups of fat samples were prepared in a way that samples of each group had different trans fatty acid (TFA) composition but similar solid fat content (SFC). Samples of the first group (named group A) had TFA between 0.0 and 56.23 %, while the samples of the second group (group B) contained trans isomers ranging from 0.0 to 44.4 %. A polarized microscope was used to monitor the differences between the samples in terms of crystal size and crystal number during isothermal crystallization. In general, increasing TFA resulted in formation of larger crystals in a shorter time. Similar findings were also observed when small deformation time and frequency sweep experiments were conducted. A higher TFA content led to higher complex modulus values during isothermal crystallization. On the other hand, when the samples were stored at 4 degrees C for 48 h, the samples with the lower trans isomer had higher hardness values.


Physicochemical, rheological, and sensory properties of low-fat ice cream designed by double emulsions
TEKIN, Ezgi; Şahin, Serpil; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm (2017-09-01)
This research was conducted to evaluate the applicability and effectiveness of using double emulsions to reduce fat content in ice cream. Polyglycerol poliricinoleate (PGPR)-lecithin blend and guar gum (GG) or guar gum-gum tragacanth (GGGT) blend were used as emulsifier/stabilizer in the formulations. Ice cream samples prepared by double emulsion method and by conventional method were compared in terms of rheological properties, overrun, melt-down resistance, and sensory properties. It was possible to reduc...
Rheology, particle-size distribution, and stability of low-fat mayonnaise produced via double emulsions
YILDIRIM, Merve; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (2016-12-01)
In this study, the effects of the double emulsification method on the rheological properties, particle size, and stability of low-fat mayonnaise were studied. Different water-phase-to-oil ratios (2:8 and 4:6) of primary emulsions and different stabilizer types (sodium caseinate, xanthan gum, and lecithin-whey protein concentrate) were used to produce double-emulsified mayonnaise. As a control sample, mayonnaise was prepared conventionally. Sodium caseinate was found to be the most efficient stabilizer. In t...
Folic acid functionalized PEG coated magnetic nanoparticles for targeting anti-cancer drug delivery: Preparation, characterization and cytotoxicity on Doxorubicin, Zoledronic acid and Paclitaxel resistant MCF-7 breast cancer cell lines
Keskin, Tugba; Yalcin, Serap; Gündüz, Ufuk (2018-01-01)
In this study, MNPs were synthesized, coated with biocompatible polyethylene glycol (PEG) and conjugated with folic acid. Crystal and chemical structures, shape, size and magnetic properties of synthesized nanoparticles were characterized. Agglomeration tendency of naked nanoparticles were prevented by oleic acid addition during the synthesis. All synthesized MNPs have been found to exhibit superparamagnetic behavior at 23 degrees C and 37 degrees C. Cytotoxic effects of MNPs were investigated on Doxorubici...
Optimising clarification of carrot juice by bacterial crude pectinase
Uzuner, Sibel; Çekmecelioğlu, Deniz (2015-12-01)
This study was undertaken to search for potential use of crude bacterial pectinase enzyme produced from Bacillus subtilis grown on hazelnut shell hydrolysate in clarification of carrot juice and to optimize the enzyme load, pH and time using the Box-Behnken response surface methodology (RSM). The carrot juice was treated with the crude pectinase enzyme (5.60 U mL(-1)) at different concentrations (0.1-0.5%), pH (4-7), and time (2-6 h). The obtained enzyme was also compared with commercial fungal pectinase at...
Microwave-Assisted Extraction of Phenolic Compounds from Caper
DURMAZ, Ezgi; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (2015-09-02)
In this study, it was aimed to extract phenolic compounds from caper by using microwave and to compare the results with conventional extraction. For microwave-assisted extraction, power, extraction time, solid to solvent ratio, and solvent type were selected as independent variables. Dependent variables were total phenolic content (TPC), antioxidant activity, and concentration of phenolic compounds. The increase in solvent amount increased TPC. The highest TPC was obtained by using extraction conditions of ...
