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

2016-07-01
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.

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...
NMR Relaxometry and magnetic resonance imaging as tools to determine the emulsifying characteristics of quince seed powder in emulsions and hydrogels
Alacik Develioglu, Irem; Özel, Barış; Şahin, Serpil; Oztop, Mecit Halil (2020-12-01)
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...
Investigations on the properties and drug releases of biodegradable polymer coatings on metal substrates as drug carriers
Baydemir, Tuncay; Bayramlı, Erdal; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2009)
The use of various biodegradable polymers for the improvement of different controlled and long-lasting drug release systems is an active research area in recent years. The application of different metal prostheses, especially titanium based ones, to the human body is also very common. A most important disadvantage of these prostheses is the risk of infection at the application areas that necessitates the removing of the prosthesis with a second surgical operation and reapplication of it after recovery. One ...
An Approach to the synyhesis of novel pyrrole fused heterocycles
Öztürk, Uğur Başak; Balcı, Metin; Department of Chemistry (2016)
Pyrrole and pyrrole derivatives are prominent building blocks in organic synthesis due to their biological activities and natural occurrence. For the formation of pyrrole derivatives, electrophilic cyclizations are considered efficient and significant processes. In this thesis, novel N-alkynyl-2-phenyl-substituted pyrrole derivatives were synthesized and electrophilic cyclization reactions of these compounds were investigated. Catalyst such as AuCl3, AuBr3, I2, ICl, FeCl3, InCl3 and Cu(OTf)2 were used for t...
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...
