Extraction of pectin from sugar beet pulp by high hydrostatic pressure and invest igation of extraction efficiency and extract characteristics.

Kaya, Burcu
Food industry produces huge amount of food waste after food processing. The food wastes could include significant amount of functional ingredients that have valorization potential. The techniques utilized to obtain functional compounds from food wastes are named as valorization. One of the important wastes of food industry is sugar beet pulp which is the waste of sugar processing. Utilizing this pulp for various applications has been very common recently. In this study, sugar beet pulp pectin was extracted using conventional extraction and high hydrostatic pres sure (HHP) assisted extraction. HHP was applied prior to extraction to ease detachment of pectin from cell wall. Different pressures (250, 350, 450 MPa) at 40°C for 5 min, two different extraction temperature (80°C, 90°C) and three different time (3, 4, 5 h) combinations were applied. Moreover, conventional extraction (CE) was compared with the results of HHP assisted extraction. Extraction yield, degree of esterification (DE), galacturonic acid content (Gal-A), rheological properties and water holding capacity (WHC) of pectin solutions were investigated. Obtained pectin was also investigated with FTIR Spectroscopy for structural elucidation. In addition, water holding capacity experiments were conducted by using Time Domain NMR Relaxometry. Extraction yield was almost doubled at HHP assisted extraction as 12.23±0.13% regarding 6.43±0.07% CE yield. HHP assisted extraction showed increasing DE values at prolonged extraction times but overall change was between 32-38% which was l ow enough to not reflect in viscosities of extracted pectin solutions. Change in viscosities were mostly insignificant (p>0.05). Gal-A decreased with increasing pressure, but it was still in safe limit regarding 60-65% Gal-A requirement of FAO. WHC was held insignificantly changed (p>0.05) at HHP assisted extraction by adjusting pressure considering the same temperature-time of CE. The results suggest that HHP assisted extraction is highly effective on increasing yield and modifying structural and functional properties of extracted pectin.


Effect of high hydrostatic pressure on physicochemical and biochemical properties of milk
Altuner, Ergin Murat; Alpas, Hami; Erdem, Yasar Kemal; Bozoglu, Faruk (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2005-10-6)
Interest in high hydrostatic pressure (HHP) applications on milk and dairy products has recently increased as HHP offers a new technology for food preservation to the food industry. Although HHP-induced microbial destruction, rennet or acid coagulation of milk and increase in cheese yield has been reported, the actual effect of HHP application on milk constituents still remains to be unexplained. Therefore, we have analyzed the effect of HHP on physicochemical and biochemical properties such as turbidity, p...
Detection of gamma irradiated spices with OSL method and its reliability
Irradiation has been accepted as an effective food safety method for various foods over 50 years. Gamma rays from radioactive isotopes of Cobalt 60 or Cesium 137 are used for food irradiation applications. The main concern about food irradiation is the detection of these irradiated foods and also loss of detection of irradiation through the storage period. Photo Stimulated Luminescence (PSL) is one of the physical techniques that can be used for irradiation detection. The aim of this study is to analyze the...
Glycation of soy protein isolate with two ketoses: d-Allulose and fructose
Taş, Ozan; Ertuğrul, Ülkü; Öztop, Halil Mecit (2021-01-01)
© 2021 Institute of Food Science and TechnologyModification of food proteins to have improved functional properties is of great importance. In this study, modification of soy protein isolate (SPI) was achieved through glycation. SPI was glycated in a spray dryer (SD) and an incubator followed by freeze drying (FD). d-Allulose, an important rare sugar, was used in SPI glycation as the carbohydrate source, and results were compared with fructose. In addition to the sugar type, two different SPI powder: sugar ...
Separation of silkworm proteins in cocoon cooking wastewaters via nanofiltration: Effect of solution pH on enrichment of sericin
ÇAPAR, GÖKŞEN (2012-02-01)
Cocoon cooking wastewater contains waste silkworm proteins including sericin, which is a valuable raw material for many industries including cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. Sericin can be recovered via nanofiltration (NF) with high efficiency; however the process conditions need to be optimized to maximize separation. In this study, the effect of solution pH on NF performance was investigated for separation of silkworm proteins towards sericin enrichment. Solution pH (3.5-9.0) slightly influenced sericin rej...

Tufan, Büşra; Şahin, Serpil; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Department of Food Engineering (2018)
Changing consumer demands have directed food industry into development of alternative food products in terms of nutrition, authenticity, innovation and functionality. The main objective of this study was to develop wafer sheets by partial replacement of wheat flour by bean, carob, chickpea and lentil flours. In this regard, firstly nutritional components of the flours were analyzed. Wheat flour was replaced by 10%, 20% and 30% legume flour and its effects on specific gravity and rheology of the batters were...
