In this study, hemicellulose-based coatings were assessed for use in microencapsulated fish oil. The fish oil emulsions were prepared using the solutions of gum arabic (GA), gum arabic-hemicellulose (GA-HC) and hemicellulose (HC) as the coating materials, amended with maltodextrin as a cheap filler material. The fish oil was then encapsulated with these emulsions using the spray drying method. The effects of the hemicelluloses on the emulsions and the formed microcapsules were evaluated by physical and chemical tests. Although the GA-HC and HC emulsions showed higher creaming index and apparent viscosity values than that of the GA samples, all emulsions showed shear-thinning behavior. The oil particle size of the emulsions was found to be affected by the apparent viscosity. The HC emulsions contained oil particles with the largest size among all samples (p < 0.05). On the other hand, oil particle sizes of the reconstituted microcapsules were not significantly different (p > 0.05). Scanning electron microscope (SEM) was also used to visualize the morphological characteristics of all microcapsules. The hemicellulose microcapsules (GA-HC and HC) had fewer dents than the GA microcapsules. The micro-encapsulating efficiency (MEE) of the GA microcapsules was found higher than that of the GA-HC and HC microcapsules. The HC microcapsules had the lowest water activity (0.049 a(w),). The wetting time of GA and GA-HC microcapsules were not significantly different (p > 0.05). As a result, this study showed that hemicelluloses can be used as the coating material with gum arabic for food microencapsulation.


Investigation of lipid-derived formation of decadien-1-amine, 2-pentylpyridine, and acrylamide in potato chips fried in repeatedly used sunflower oil

This study aimed to investigate lipid derived formations of decadien-1-amine, 2-pentylpyridine, and acrylamide in potato chips during frying. 2,4-Decadienal, a lipid derived carbonyl, was monitored in repeatedly used sunflower oil at different thermoxidation levels (0, 6, 12, 18, 24 h at 180 degrees C), and in potato chips prepared in. Formations of decadien-1-amine and 2-pentylpyridine were shown for the first time in potato chips. Frying oil had the highest concentration of 2,4-decadienal after thermal ox...
Cinnamon oil nanoemulsions by spontaneous emulsification: Formulation, characterization and antimicrobial activity
YILDIRIM, Simge Tutku; Öztop, Halil Mecit; Soyer, Yeşim (Elsevier BV, 2017-10-01)
The goal of this study was to formulate stable cinnamon oil nanoemulsions (NEs) exhibiting high anti-microbial activity by using the low-energy approach: spontaneous emulsification (SE) and compare it with two high-energy methods. To prepare the nanoemulsions by SE, oil phase containing cinnamon oil (CO) and carrier oil (coconut oil (CNO)) at different ratios (2:8-10:0) and surfactant (Tween 80) at 10% (w/w) was titrated into an aqueous phase (distilled water). For antimicrobial activity, agar disc diffusio...
Influence of alcohols on citric acid production by Aspergillus niger A-9 entrapped in polyacrylamide gels
Yaykasli, KO; Demirel, G; Yasar, A (Elsevier BV, 2005-10-01)
In this study, the production of citric acid has been achieved by using Aspergillus niger conidiaspores, entrapped in polyacrylamide gels, and the factors that affect this production have been investigated. On citric acid production the effect of starting sucrose concentration (100-180 g/l), the initial nitrogen concentration (0-0.3 g/l), the effect of the methanol concentration in 100ml feeding medium (0-6 ml), and finally the effect of ethanol concentration (0-6 ml) in 100 ml feeding medium were studied a...
Investigation of sensory and instrumental methods to predict shelf-life of jelly gums
Tireki, Suzan; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil; Department of Food Engineering (2017)
The main aim of this study was to correlate sensorial changes with instrumental techniques to predict shelf life during storage of jelly gums. Effects of glucose syrup:sucrose ratio, starch and gelatine content on quality and sensorial properties of jellies were investigated. Glucose syrup: sucrose ratio, starch and gelatine contents affected hardness significantly. Moisture content, water activity, total soluble solids, pH, springiness and gumminess was influenced by only glucose syrup:sucrose ratio. Moist...
Monitoring the effects of divalent ions (Mn+2 and Ca+2) in heat-set whey protein gels
Öztop, Halil Mecit; MCCARTHY, Michael J.; ROSENBERG, Moshe (Elsevier BV, 2014-04-01)
Exploring the effects of cations in whey protein-based gels (WPG) is of importance when these gels are used for controlled release applications in food systems. The objective of this study was to evaluate both water uptake and cation release from heat-set WPGs. Magnetic Resonance Imaging and NMR relaxometry were employed to study the uptake and release. A non-paramagnetic (Ca+2) and a paramagnetic cation (Mn+2) were incorporated into the WPG as model divalent cations. Cylindrical pieces of WPGs with mangane...
