Influence of fat content and emulsifier type on the rheological properties of cake batter

2004-11-01
The effects of fat content and emulsifier type on the rheological properties of cake batter have been investigated by using a parallel-plate rheometer. The apparent viscosity of cake batter with five different fat concentrations (0, 12.5, 25, 37.5, and 50%) and two types of emulsifier, namely Purawave and Lecigran, was studied as a function of the shear rate. In addition, the time dependency of different cake formulations was investigated. It was found that cake batter with different fat concentrations and emulsifier types exhibited shear thinning and time-independent behavior. Experimental data provided a good fit for the power law model. The increase in fat content and addition of emulsifier caused a decrease in the apparent viscosity. The flow behavior index was not found to be dependent on the composition of cake batter.

Effects of addition of different fibers on rheological characteristics of cake batter and quality of cakes
Aydogdu, AYÇA; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (2018-02-01)
The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of addition of dietary fibers on rheological properties of batter and cake quality. Wheat flour was replaced by 5 and 10% (wt%) oat, pea, apple and lemon fibers. All cake batters showed shear thinning behavior. Incorporation of fibers increased consistency index (k), storage modulus (G') and loss modulus (GaEuro(3)). As quality parameters, specific volume, hardness, weight loss, color and microstructure of cakes were investigated. Cakes containing oat and...
Effects of microwave frying and different flour types addition on the microstructure of batter coatings
Barutcu, Isil; Şahin, Serpil; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm (2009-12-01)
In this study, the influences of microwave frying and various flour types on microstructure of batter coatings were investigated. Control batter formulation contained only wheat and corn flour. To determine the effects of different flour types, 30% of the corn and wheat flour mix was replaced with chickpea, rice or soy flours. Frying was performed in microwave oven at 365 W (70%) power level for 1.5 min after bringing the oil temperature to 180 +/- 1 degrees C. Samples were also fried in a conventional frye...
EFFECTS OF HYDROCOLLOIDS AND CAROB BEAN FLOUR ON RHEOLOGICAL PROPERTIES OF BATTER AND CAKE QUALITY
BERK, EDA; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (2017-01-01)
Carob bean flour which contains significant amount of dietary fiber, amino acid and minerals can be an alternative flour to enrich nutritional value of gluten free cakes. The objective of this study was to determine the effects of partial replacement of rice flour by carob bean flour at different concentrations (10%, 20%, 30%) and addition of different types of gums (xanthan gum, and guar gum), on specific gravity and rheological properties of gluten free cake batters. In addition, quality of cakes (weight ...
Development of functional cakes to be baked in microwave-infrared combination oven
Özkahraman, Betül Canan; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil; Department of Food Engineering (2014)
The main objective of this study was to develop functional cake formulations to be baked in the microwave-infrared (MW-IR) combination oven by using legume flours. It was also aimed to compare quality of legume cakes baked in MW-IR oven with conventional oven. For this reason, oven type (conventional and microwave-infrared combination oven), baking time (4, 4.5 and 5 minutes), legume flour type (lentil, chickpea and pea) and legume flour concentration (10%, 20%, and 30%) were selected as independent variabl...
Effects of different flour, gum and protein types on quality of gluten-free cakes
Berk, Eda; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil; Department of Food Engineering (2016)
The main objective of this study was to investigate the influence of flour type, concentration, gum/protein type on rheological, physical and morphological behavior of gluten free cake batter, and to study impact of them on cake quality. In the first part of the study, the effects of partial replacement of rice flour with buckwheat flour, or carob bean flour at different concentrations (10%, 20%, 30%), and addition of different types of gums (xanthan gum, guar gum), or proteins (soy protein and whey protein...
