Development of a high-quality low-calorie chocolate needs the use of the most appropriate ingredients that could substitute sugar without negatively affecting several product properties. In this study, sucrose-reduced chocolates sweetened with sucralose and stevia by using bulking agents were investigated in relation to their rheological, textural and sensory attributes. Dark, milk and white chocolates with different amounts of sweeteners were formulated. The Casson model best fitted to the rheological data. In dark chocolates, partial substitution of sucrose with stevia (DCSSt) gave similar plastic viscosity and yield stress values with control samples (DCS). Hardness measurements also supported these results. DCSSt sample was again found to be very similar to control in tested sensory attributes when assessed by a consumer panel. The data indicated that it was possible to manufacture chocolate by partial replacement of sucrose with stevia without adversely affecting its important rheological, textural properties and sensory acceptance.

Effect of some intense sweeteners on rheological, textural and sensory properties of chocolate

Development of a high-quality low-calorie chocolate needs the use of the most appropriate ingredients that could substitute sugar without negatively affecting several product properties. Although it is possible to formulate sugar-free or sugar-reduced chocolates with an acceptable sweetness level, these chocolates often show poorer sensory properties, especially undesirable mouthfeel, which could limit their consumption. In this study, low-sucrose chocolates sweetened with sucralose and stevia by using bulk...
Food processing and digestion: The effect of extrusion process on bioactive compounds in extrudates with artichoke leaf powder and resulting in vitro cynarin and cynaroside bioaccessibility
Güven, Özge; Şensoy, İlkay (Elsevier BV, 2018-01-01)
Although herbal ingredients could be used to increase bioactive compounds in food products, it is more crucial to investigate the effect of processing on their bioaccessibility and their content. In this study, artichoke leaf powder (ALP) was added to wheat flour (WF) at ratios of 0:100, 3:97, 6:94 and 9:91 g ALP:g WF on dry basis. The effect of extrusion process on the bioactive compounds themselves and in vitro bioaccessibilities of cynarin and cynaroside, which are found in ALP, were investigated. Total ...
Formulation and characterization of starch and soy protein containing low calorie soft candy
İlhan, Esmanur; Öztop, Halil Mecit; Department of Food Engineering (2019)
Type of sugar and gelling agents used in confectionery formulations have vital importance since they directly influence physicochemical properties during storage. In this study, effect of a non-caloric rare sugar, D-allulose (formerly called D-psicose) on the starch based confectionery gels were investigated in the presence and absence of soy protein isolate using different experimental techniques for 28 days. For characterization of the formulized gel systems, common techniques were used (optical microscop...
The effect of extrusion on the functional components and in vitro lycopene bioaccessibility of tomato pulp added corn extrudates
Tonyalı, Bade; Şensoy, İlkay; Karakaya, Sibel (2016-01-01)
The effect of processing on functional ingredients and their in vitro bioaccessibility should be investigated to develop better food products. Tomato pulp was added as a functional ingredient to extrudates. The effects of extrusion on the functional properties of the extrudates and the in vitro bioaccessibility of lycopene were investigated. Two different temperature sets were applied during extrusion: 80 degrees C, 90 degrees C, 100 degrees C and 130 degrees C and 80 degrees C, 100 degrees C, 130 degrees C...
Evaluation of different coating materials for encapsulation of phenolic compounds extracted from onion (allium cepa) skin
Akdeniz, Büşra; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil; Department of Food Engineering (2016)
Encapsulation provides a protective barrier to some vulnerable food ingredients such as phenolic and antioxidant compounds against some external factors. Moreover, by the help of encapsulation the unwanted odor or taste of core the materials are masked. The main objective of the study was to evaluate the effects of different type of coating materials on encapsulation of phenolic compounds extracted from onion skin. Coating materials were maltodextrin, gum arabic, casein and whey protein concentrate (WPC). A...
