Characterization of emulsion stabilization properties of quince seed extract as a new source of hydrocolloid

The capability of seed extracts in stabilizing emulsions has particularly received interest in recent years. Upon soaking quince seeds into water, biopolymers inside the seeds are extracted to water, forming mucilage. This study investigates the physical stability, rheology and microstructure of oil (sunflower oil) in water emulsions, stabilized by 2% (w/v) whey protein isolate with varying concentrations of xanthan and quince seed gum. Quince seed gum resulted in emulsions with smaller low-shear viscosities and shear thinning capabilities compared to the same concentrations of xanthan. Quince seed gum emulsions with concentrations <= 0.1 (w/v), displayed rapid creaming due to bridging flocculation. Despite the difference in apparent viscosities, for gum concentrations < 0.2 (w/v), both gums demonstrated comparable stability with xanthan gum in general yielding marginally more stable emulsions. Gum concentrations > 03 (w/v) resulted in physically stable emulsions even after 5 months. Overall, quince seed gum-displayed significant emulsification and stabilization properties.

Quince seed powder (QSP) is known to exhibit emulsification properties and could be used as a natural emulsifier in colloidal food systems. In this study, emulsion-based alginate hydrogels were formulated using QSP and xanthan gum (XG) as stabilizers. The objective of the study was to show the emulsifying power of QSP in emulsions and their hydrogels using Time Domain (TD) NMR Relaxometry and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Rheology and mean particle size measurements for emulsions and scanning electron m...

Seeds of the plant quince are a natural hydrocolloid source whose extract has shown promising results in stabilizing emulsions. The study aims to discover how quince seed extract's interfacial properties (dynamic surface tension and dilatational surface rheology) on an oil–water interface change with varying concentrations (between 0.01% and 1%), pH's (3, 7, and 11), and ionic strengths (0.1, 0.3, 0.5 M NaCl). The lowest concentration that yielded a statistically significant drop in interfacial was found as...
Characterization of Emulsion Stabilization Properties of Gum Tragacanth, Xanthan Gum and Sucrose Monopalmitate: A Comparative Study
Pocan, Pelin; İlhan, Esmanur; Öztop, Halil Mecit (2019-05-01)
Emulsification effect of gum tragacanth (GT) obtained from Astragalus species is gaining particular interest in recent years. In this study, stabilization effect of GT, xanthan gum (XG), and sucrose monopalmitate (SMP) was investigated by keeping their concentration constant (0.5% w/v) for the oil-in-water emulsions containing 20% (v/v) sun flower oil and 2% (w/v) whey protein isolate. Emulsification was achieved by using high shear homogenization. Particle size and T-2 (spin-spin relaxation time) measureme...

Polysiloxane-polypyrrole graft copolymers have been synthesized by a series of chemical reactions and subsequent electropolymerization. First, the hydrosilation of 4-vinyl aniline by dimethyl-methylhydrosiloxane copolymer gave the corresponding aminophenyl functional polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS-NH2). The side chain pyrrole functionalized. polysiloxanes were then prepared by the reaction of PDMS-NH2 with glycidylpyrrole. Finally, the synthesis of graft copolymers of polysiloxane and pyrrole has been achieved ...
Investigation of sugar metabolism in rhizopus oryzae
Büyükkileci, Ali Oğuz; Hamamcı, Haluk; Department of Biotechnology (2007)
Rhizopus oryzae is a filamentous fungus, which can produce high amounts of L(+)-lactic acid and produces ethanol as the main by-product. In an effort to understand the pyruvate branch point of this organism, fermentations under different inoculum and glucose concentrations were carried out. At low inoculum size (1x103 spores ml-1), high amount of lactate (78 g l-1) was produced, whereas high ethanol concentration (37 g l-1) was obtained at high inoculum sizes (1x106 spores ml-1). Decreasing working volume i...
