Drying behavior of honey‐starch mixtures at constant external conditions were studied. Mixtures with 0, 10, 20, 30, and 40% starch and the balance in honey were coated on aluminum plates at 0.25 mm thickness and dried in a laboratory oven at 60°, 70°, and 80°C. A mass transfer model with two falling rate periods was developed. In the first falling rate period, mass transfer coefficient was a linear function of moisture content. It was a constant in the second falling rate period. Mass transfer coefficients were also found to be affected by temperature and the starch content of each mixture.

Homogeneous and heterogeneous nucleation rates of ice in aqueous systems are described in the literature with the equation J = A exp (B tau). There are a very large number of published data available for variation of the constants A and B with experimental conditions. Results of this study show that the parameters obtained in the experiments with differential scanning calorimeter and the microscopic technique may be described separately with an empirical compensation equation of the form In A = aB + b. The ...
Thermal and chemical inactivation of lactococcal bacteriophages
BUZRUL, Sencer; OZTURK, Pinar; Alpas, Hami; AKÇELİK, Mustafa (Elsevier BV, 2007-01-01)
Ten lactococcal bacteriophages in M 17 broth were treated by heat (72 degrees C, 15 min and 90 degrees C, 5 min), ethanol and isopropanol at concentrations of 10%, 50%. 75% and 100% (v/v). The heat treatments were not sufficient to inactivate all the bacteriophages studied whereas ethanol, which was also more efficient biocide than isopropanol, at a concentration of 75% could inactivate all the phages in I min. The 50% and 75% of ethanol were more effective than 100%, which was also observed for isopropanol...
Heat transfer during frying of potato slices
Şahin, Serpil; Bayindirli, L (Elsevier BV, 1999-01-01)
The convective heat transfer coefficient during deep-fat-frying of potatoes was determined at different temperatures. The temperature, 0.1 cm below the top and bottom surfaces of a 0.05 x 0.05 x 0.005 m potato sample was monitored over rime. The thermal conductivity and specific heat of the sample were expressed as a function of rime, and the data were analyzed using the heat transfer equation with an explicit finite difference method. Crust formation occurred primarily at the bottom surface of the potato s...
Investigation of dielectric properties of different cake formulations during microwave and infrared-microwave combination baking
Sakiyan, Ozge; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Sahin, Serpil; Meda, Venkatesh (Wiley, 2007-05-01)
Dielectric properties can be used to understand the behavior of food materials during microwave processing. Dielectric properties influence the level of interaction between food and high frequency electromagnetic energy. Dielectric properties are, therefore, important in the design of foods intended for microwave preparation. In this study, it was aimed to determine the variation of dielectric properties of different cake formulations during baking in microwave and infrared-microwave combination oven. In ad...
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...
