The impact of sourdough amount (20, 40 and 60%) on the rheological behaviour of gluten-free chestnut-rice dough formulations and quality parameters (pH, total titratable acidity, firmness, volume and crumb microstructure) of the corresponding breads was studied. The addition of sourdough led to decreases in complex modulus indicating a softening of the dough samples. Higher levels of sourdough addition had a detrimental effect on the volume and texture of breads. X-ray micro computed tomograph images showed that gluten-free chestnut-rice breads prepared with a sourdough incorporation of 20% had the most homogenous structure with high number of smaller pores. Inferior crumb structures were observed with the further addition of sourdough. Confocal laser scanning microscopy revealed that the proteins in breads prepared with sourdough were smaller due to their degradation into smaller peptides by the sourdough fermentation. These changes resulted in an improvement of the bread quality.


Production of hazelnut skin fibres and utilisation in a model bakery product
Cikrikci, SEVİL; Demirkesen, I.; Mert, Behiç (Codon Publications, 2016-01-01)
Microfluidisation was used as a potential method for the production of fibrous structure from hazelnut skin (HS), and which was evaluated as an ingredient in cake as model bakery product. More specifically, effects of different amounts of microfluidised HS on rheological behaviour of cake batter and quality parameters (texture and colour) and storage characteristics of cake products were evaluated. Furthermore, performance of microfluidised HS was compared with conventionally milled HS and cacao powder for ...
Effects of buckwheat flour, gums and proteins on rheological properties of gluten-free batters and structure of cakes
Yıldız, Eda; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (Codon Publications, 2018-01-01)
The main objective of the study is to determine the effects of buckwheat flour concentration and different gum types (xanthan, guar gum) or proteins (soy protein and whey protein) on rheological properties of gluten-free cake batters and physical properties of cakes (weight loss, porosity, specific volume, hardness and macro structure). Gum containing batters exhibited higher apparent viscosities. More uniform distribution of gas cells were observed in whey protein containing samples compared to other batte...
Effects of Bentonite Combinations and Gelatin on the Rheological Behaviour of Bentonite – Apple Juice Dispersions
Dik, Tunay; Özilgen, Mustafa (Elsevier BV, 1996-11)
Rheological behaviour of bentonite – apple juice suspensions were experimentally determined at 25°C, within the shear rate range of 4.3 to 43.1 s−1with 0.90, 1.33 and 2.66 g/L bentonite mixtures and 0 to 0.25 g/L (on dry basis) gelatin concentrations. The mixtures consisted of 100%, 80%, 60%, 40% 20% and 0% Ca-bentonite and balance Na-bentonite combinations. The experimental data were described with the power law as τ =Kγ.1.56. The consistency index was related to the calcium, sodium and gelatin concentrati...
Recovery of strawberry aroma compounds by pervaporation
Isci, A; Şahin, Serpil; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm (Elsevier BV, 2006-07-01)
The main objective of this study was to determine the effects of feed temperature (30, 40, 50 degrees C), concentration (50, 100, 150 ppm), composition (different strawberry model solutions) and permeate pressure (4, 8 mbar) on recovery of strawberry aroma compounds by pervaporation. Pervaporation was performed using a hydrophobic membrane, PERVAP 1070 (PDMS). As the feed temperature increased or downstream pressure decreased, the mass flux and selectivity increased in pervaporation of methyl butyrate (MTB)...
Usage of enzymes in a novel baking process
Keskin, SO; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (Wiley, 2004-04-01)
In this study, the effects of different enzymes (a-amylase, xylanase, lipase, protease) on quality of breads baked in different ovens (microwave, halogen lamp-microwave combination and conventional oven) were investigated. It was also aimed to reduce the quality problems of breads baked in microwave ovens with the usage of enzymes. As a control, bread dough containing no enzyme was used. Specific volume, firmness and color of the breads were measured as quality parameters. All of the enzymes were found to b...
