The objective of this study was to enhance oxidative stability of walnuts present in active packages produced by electrospinning technology. Gallic acid was encapsulated into lentil flour/polyethylene oxide (PEO) nanofibers. To promote the solubility of lentil proteins, pH of solutions was adjusted to pH 1 and pH 10 which were far away from isoelectric point of lentil proteins. While acidic solutions had lower viscosity values than alkaline solutions, their electrical conductivity values were significantly higher. When the scanning electron microscopy (SEM) images were examined, it should be noted that alkaline nanofibers showed homogenous structure. Although gallic acid was not so stable at alkaline conditions, gallic acid loaded nanofibers prepared at alkaline pH still showed antioxidant activity after electrospinning. The physical and thermal properties of encapsulated gallic acid and nanofibers were examined by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA) and differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) analyses. FTIR results indicated the effect of pH on chemical properties of nanofibers and the interaction between gallic acid and lentil flour-based nanofibers. Gallic acid addition reduced onset temperature and thermal stability. Therefore, it could be taken as evidence of incorporation of gallic acid. Disappearance of enthalpic peak related to melting of crystalline structure of gallic acid in DSC thermal curves confirmed successful encapsulation of gallic acid. Fabricated gallic acid loaded nanofibers were used to pack walnuts and the reduction in oxidation of walnuts with lower peroxide, p-anisidine and Totox values was observed. This would make these packaging materials substantially preferable for packing of foods being highly susceptible to oxidation.

Inactivation kinetics of Salmonella dublin by pulsed electric field
Şensoy, İlkay; SASTRY, SUDHIR (Wiley, 1997-11-01)
Microbial inactivation kinetic models are needed to predict treatment dosage in food pasteurization processes. In this study, we determined inactivation kinetic models of Salmonella dublin in skim milk with a co-field flow high voltage pulsed electric field (PEF) treatment system. Electric field strength of 15-40 kV/cm, treatment time of 12-127 mu s, medium temperatures of 10-50C were tested. A new inactivation kinetic model that combines the effect of treatment time to electric field strength or medium tem...
Predicting drying behavior of spaghetti in a continuous industrial dryer with the models determined in a lab scale batch system
Kucuk, R; Ozilgen, M (Wiley, 1997-08-01)
In the first stage of this study experimental data were obtained by using a lab scale batch type dryer, operating under various constant temperature/constant relative humidity combinations; then a mathematical model was determined for the effective diffusivity of moisture in spaghetti. In the second stage of the study the model obtained in the lab scale batch type dryer was used to calculate the moisture content of the spaghetti leaving continuous industrial scale dryer, and its success was tested by compar...

Mandarins were coated with SemperSresh(TM) and Jonfresh(TM) edible coatings. The weight gain of mandarins after application of Jonfresh and Semperfresh coatings was 0.8% and 0.6% respectively. Weight loss, respiration rate, ascorbic acid, soluble solids (brix) and acidity changes of coated mandarins were compared with uncoated mandarins during storage at 20C and 40% RH for 4 weeks. Semperfresh(TM) and Jonfresh(TM) coatings delayed the ripening of mandarins. Both of the coatings were effective to reduce the ...
The effects of gums on macro and micro-structure of breads baked in different ovens
Ozkoc, Semin Ozge; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (Elsevier BV, 2009-12-01)
In this study, the effects of gums on macro and micro-structure of breads baked in different ovens (infrared (IR)-microwave combination and conventional) were investigated by the help of image and SEM analysis, respectively. The gums used were xanthan, guar, K-carrageenan and xanthan-guar blend. The gums were added to the formulation at 0.5% concentration. As a control, no gum added formulations were used. Results of Image analysis demonstrated that xanthan-guar gum blend addition improved bread quality wit...
Vulcan-Supported Pt Electrocatalysts for PEMFCs Prepared using Supercritical Carbon Dioxide Deposition
Bayrakceken, Ayse; Smirnova, Alevtina; Kitkamthorn, Usanee; Aindow, Mark; Tuerker, Lemi; Eroğlu, İnci; ERKEY, CAN (Informa UK Limited, 2009-01-01)
In this study, supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO(2)) deposition was used to prepare vulcan-supported Pt (Pt/Vulcan) electrocatalysts for proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs), and the effects of process variables on the properties of the electrocatalysts were investigated. The two different methods used to reduce the organometallic precursor were thermal reduction in nitrogen at atmospheric pressure and thermal reduction in scCO(2). In the former method, the maximum Pt loading achieved was 9%, and t...
