Enzymatic peeling of apricots nectarines and peaches

TOKER, İlkem
Bayındırlı, Alev
Different combinations of Peelzym (I, II, III and IV) concentration (0.1, 0.55, 1 cm(3) enzyme/100 cm(3) solution), temperature (20degreesC, 35degreesC, 50degreesC), pH (3.0, 4.5, 6.0) and time (20, 40, 60 min) were used for enzymatic peeling of apricots, nectarines and peaches. The optimum conditions were determined by using response surface methodology. Peeling yield, absorption of enzyme solution and texture changes were measured after peeling. For peeling of apricots with Peelzym IV, the optimum temperature was 45degreesC; the optimum values of time were in the range of 57-60 min and that of pH and enzyme concentration were in the ranges of 3-3.5 and 0.85-0.90 cm(3) enzyme/100 cm(3) solution, respectively. Optimum conditions of peeling for nectarines were determined to be temperature, 44-47degreesC; time, 53-58 min; pH, 3.5-4.1; and enzyme concentration, 0.70-0.90 cm(3) enzyme/100 cm(3) solution by using Peelzym I. For peaches the ranges were 41-46degreesC for temperature, 44-54 min for time, 3.6-4.5 for pH and 0.73-0.90 cm(3) enzyme/100 cm(3) solution by using Peelzym IV. By this method, peeling was successful at moderately high temperatures. (C) 2003 Swiss Society of Food Science and Technology. Published by Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.

Enzymatic Hydrolysis of Fruit Peels and Other Lignocellulosic Biomass as a Source of Sugar
POCAN, Pelin; BAHÇEGÜL, Erinc; Öztop, Halil Mecit; Hamamcı, Haluk (2018-06-01)
Glucose and reducing sugars were obtained from corn cobs, orange and pomegranate peels by employing different enzymatic hydrolysis and pretreatment strategies. For the hydrolysis of corn cobs, effect of alkaline pretreatment was examined. Effect of cellobiase loading on hydrolysis was also investigated. Glucose content was measured using a Blood Glucose Monitor. When cellobiase was also added to hydrolysate, glucose and TRS yield increased from 20 and 34% respectively. Unlike corncobs, alkaline pretreatment...
Rheological properties of waxy maize starch and xanthan gum mixtures in the presence of sucrose
Wang, Bao; Wang, Li-Jun; Li, Dong; Özkan, Necati; Li, Shu-Jun; Mao, Zhi-Huai (2009-07-11)
Rheological properties of 5% (w/w) waxy maize starch (WMS)/xanthan gum (XG) mixed pastes (mixing ratios: 10/0, 9.5/0.5, 9/1) in the presence of sucrose (0%, 15%, and 30%) were studied. The 5% WMS paste displayed strong anti-thixotropic behavior based on the heating method adopted (heating in water bath for 40 min with mixing at 200 rpm). The addition of XG could accelerate the formation of new structure of the WMS/XG mixed pastes under shear conditions, and XG could also decrease the in-shear recoveries of ...
Proteomics of phanerochaete chrysosporium under heavy metal stress
Yıldırım, Volkan; Özcengiz, Gülay; Department of Biology (2014)
In this study, time-dependent heavy metal response of the white rot fungus P. chrysosporium was analyzed by using 2D-PAGE-MS for soluble cytosolic fraction and GeLC-MS approach for membrane enriched fraction. After the 2D-PAGE-MS analysis, a total of 123 protein spots were detected as differentially expressed for Cu-exposed samples and 89 of them were identifed. Further analysis revealed that the 89 protein spots are the products of the 58 distinct ORFs. Overall, strongly up-regulated proteins included (i) ...
Biosorption of lead(II) ions from aqueous solution by peanut shells: Equilibrium, thermodynamic and kinetic studies
Tasar, Seyda; Kaya, Fatih; Ozer, Ahmet (2014-06-01)
In this study, the biosorption of Pb(II) ions onto peanut shells from an aqueous solution was studied in a batch system as a function of temperature, pH of the solution, contact time, initial concentration of Pb(II) ions, and peanut shell concentration. It was determined that the biosorption capacity of the peanut shells decreased as the temperature was increased. Several kinetic models were used to determine the biosorption mechanism. It was determined that the biosorption system obeyed the pseudo-second-o...
Polyaniline: synthesis characterization solution properties and composites
Yılmaz, Faris; Küçükyavuz, Zuhal; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2007)
Polyaniline was chemically synthesized at three different temperatures of 25, 0, and -25oC, by oxidative polymerization with ammonium peroxidisulfate at equimolar of aniline to oxidant ratio and 1M HCl. The resulted polyaniline was in a powder form which was characterized by several techniques such as: electrical conductivity, elemental analysis, thermal analysis, wide-angle X-Ray diffraction, and scanning electron microscope. The solution properties of the reduced polymer were studied by viscometry, static...
