Available evidence from clinical trials suggests the replacement of saturated fatty acids with polyunsaturated fatty acids as well as with essential fatty acids to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Thus, the importance of limiting of saturated fatty acid intake as well as the removal of trans-fatty acids from the diet have also emphasized. Conversely, recent studies have questioned the simple explanation of the relationship of dietary saturated fats and of individual saturated fatty acids to cardiovascular disease. Although, controversies continue to exist, current recommendations have highlighted that the importance of a critical look at the evaluation of scientific understanding about dietary fats and health. Therefore, manufacturers and scientists have focused on seeking alternative ways to modify or structure liquid oil without the use of saturated and trans-fats and hence to offer the functionality of fats to food products without changing the nutritional profile of liquid oil. However, since shortening as the essential component of bakery products affects dough structure and the desired final product attributes, the replacement of shortening creates a big challenge in bakery problems. The aim of this study was to provide an overview of the functions of shortening in bakery products and of the field of oleogels with special importance on the updates from recent years and their possible applications in bakery products. With the incorporation of oleogels or oleogel/shortening blends, rheological properties of dough/batters as well as physicochemical properties of resulted products may be resembled to those made with shortening. Conversely, the application of this technique had a role on retaining solid-like properties while possesses a healthier fatty acid profile. Very recent study indicated that gradual replacement of shortening with oleogels have potential for partial reduction of saturated fat without chancing physical properties of gluten free aerated products. Thus, the applications of oleogels may also present more alternatives for celiac sufferers' diet.


Functional properties of microwave-treated wheat gluten
Yalcin, Erkan; Sakiyan, Ozge; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Celik, Sueda; KÖKSEL, HAMİT (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2008-09-01)
In this study, the effects of microwave treatments on solubility, foaming and emulsifying properties of gluten were investigated. The solubility of microwave-heated gluten proteins gradually decreased as the treatment time increased, at all power levels applied. The highest solubility values were obtained for gluten samples microwave treated at 50% power level. The lowest emulsifying capacity values were obtained with the samples heated at 100% power level at all treatment times. The emulsifying stability v...
Optimisation of formulations and infrared-microwave combination baking conditions of chestnut-rice breads
Demirkesen, Ilkem; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil; Uysal, Nalan (Wiley, 2011-09-01)
The main objective of this study was to design gluten-free breads containing chestnut and rice flour and xanthan-guar gum blend to be baked in infrared-microwave combination oven. Response surface methodology (RSM) was used to optimise gluten-free bread formulations and processing conditions. Weight loss, firmness, specific volume and colour change of the breads were determined. Rice flour mixed with different proportions of chestnut flour and different emulsifier contents were used to prepare breads. The g...
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...
Current applications of exopolysaccharides from lactic acid bacteria in the development of food active edible packaging
Moradi, Mehran; Guimarães, Jonas T; Şahin, Serpil (Elsevier BV, 2021-08-01)
The lactic acid bacteria (LAB) are usually recognized as safe for consumption and comprise several genera with different technological and health-promoting potential for food applications, including probiotic characteristics. Their exopolysaccharides (EPS) have interesting film-forming properties and may be used to produce edible packaging, as a structural enhancer, a bioactive agent or probiotic carrier in edible films and coatings. In these days, there is a specific demand for food products with reduced a...

Colorectal cancer is one of the leading causes of death worldwide, and healthy diet is critical in preventing it. This study intends to investigate phenolic profile, antioxidant, and anti-proliferative activity as well as Glutathione S-transferase (GST) inhibition activity of water extract of Salvia fruticosa Mill. (SF.) HPLC analysis revealed that the main bioactive ingredients of SF were rosmarinic and caffeic acid. Total phenolic and flavonoid contents were 425.1mg GAE/g extract and 94.7mg CE/g extract, ...
