Optimization of halogen lamp-microwave combination baking of cakes: a response surface methodology study

2005-07-01
The main objective of this study was to optimize processing conditions during halogen lamp-microwave combination baking of cake by using response surface methodology. The independent variables were the power of the upper halogen lamp (50, 60, and 70%), the power of the lower halogen lamp (50, 60, and 70%), the power of the microwaves (30, 40, and 50%), and the baking time (4, 5, and 6 min). Weight loss, specific volume, color, and the texture profile of the cakes were determined. The upper halogen lamp power, the microwave power, and the baking time were found to have a significant effect on the weight loss, the specific volume, and the firmness of the cakes. Cakes baked for 5 min at 60% upper halogen lamp power, 70% lower halogen lamp power, and 30% microwave power had quality comparable with conventionally baked ones, except for color. By the usage of a halogen lamp-microwave combination oven it was possible to obtain high-quality cakes by reducing the conventional baking time by about 79%.

Response surface methodology was used to optimize the formulation of microwave-baked cakes. The independent variables were water content, emulsifier content baking time, oven power, shortening content and starch type. The quality factors evaluated were specific gravity of batter and volume index, uniformity index and tenderness of the crumb. Constraints for quality factors were obtained by conventional baking of American Association of Cereal Chemists high-ratio cake formulation. Multiple contour plots show...

Optimization of microwave frying of osmotically dehydrated potato slices by using response surface methodology
Öztop, Halil Mecit; Şahin, Serpil; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2007-04-01)
Microwave frying of osmotically dehydrated potatoes was optimized by using response surface methodology. Osmotic dehydration was applied prior to microwave frying in order to reduce oil uptake and to evaluate the effect of osmotic dehydration on quality of microwave fried potatoes. Moisture content, oil content, hardness and color of the fried potatoes were used as quality parameters. Microwave power level (400, 550, 700 W), frying time (1.5, 2.0, 2.5 min) and osmotic dehydration time (15, 30, 45 min) were ...
