The effect of processing on functional compounds in buckwheat was investigated. Extractions of buckwheat flour were carried out before and after roasting or extrusion. Folin-Ciocalteu assays indicated that processing did not cause any change in total phenolic content in buckwheat flour. Roasted (200 degrees C, 10 min) dark buckwheat flour exhibited an increase in non-polar compounds as well as polar compounds whereas extrusion exhibited increase only in polar compounds. Antioxidant activity test (DPPH) showed that roasting at 200 degrees C for 10 min decreased the antioxidant activity slightly whereas extrusion (170 degrees C) did not cause any change. The results suggest that processing conditions can be optimized to retain the health promoting compounds in buckwheat products.


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...
Effects of selenium supplementation on rat heart apex and right ventricle myocardia by using FTIR spectroscopy: A cluster analysis and neural network approach

The effects of selenium supplementation on apex and right ventricle myocardia of the rat heart were investigated using Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy by examining the changes in the frequency values of major absorptions arising from lipids and proteins. Cluster analysis was used to discriminate the selenium treated group from the control by utilizing two distinct spectral regions, belonging to absorptions arising from lipids and proteins, respectively. In addition, protein secondary structur...
Differentiation of Anatolian honey samples from different botanical origins by ATR-FTIR spectroscopy using multivariate analysis

Botanical origin of the nectar predominantly affects the chemical composition of honey. Analytical techniques used for reliable honey authentication are mostly time consuming and expensive. Additionally, they cannot provide 100% efficiency in accurate authentication. Therefore, alternatives for the determination of floral origin of honey need to be developed. This study aims to discriminate characteristic Anatolian honey samples from different botanical origins based on the differences in their molecular co...
Peroxidation of membrane lipids in minimally processed cucumbers packaged under modified atmospheres
Karakas, Barcin; Yıldız, Fatih (Elsevier BV, 2007-01-01)
The effect of storage conditions and physical tissue damage on membrane peroxidation in minimally processed cucumber tissue was investigated. Lipid peroxidation in samples stored under modified atmospheric packaging (MAP) and in covered Petri dishes (non-MAP) were determined by the FOX2 and TBARS assays. The initial level of lipid hydroperoxides and TBARS were found as 1.44-2.00 and 0.11-0.20 nmol/g, respectively. The levels of lipid hydroperoxides increased by five- to sixfold in chilled non-MAP tissues ov...
Impact of PCB-118 and transformer oil toxicity on anaerobic digestion of sludge: Anaerobic toxicity assay results
Kaya, Devrim; İmamoğlu, İpek; Sanin, Faika Dilek (Elsevier BV, 2013-08-01)
In this study, possible toxicity of increasing doses of PCB-118 and transformer oil (TO) on anaerobic sludge digestion was investigated. For this purpose, five different sets of reactors were prepared in which four different PCB-118 concentration (1, 10, 20, and 30 mg L-1) and three different TO concentration (0.38, 0.76, and 1.52 g L-1) were applied. Throughout the study, biogas production and composition, pH, TS, VS, and COD as well as PCB concentration were monitored. Toxicity was investigated by anaerob...
