The effects of chestnut flour and a xanthan-guar gum blend-DATEM mixture on staling of gluten-free rice breads baked in conventional and infrared-microwave combination ovens were studied. Staling properties of the bread were assessed using mechanical compression (TA), differential scanning calorimetry, X-ray diffraction, and fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR). Hardness, moisture loss, and retrogradation enthalpy values for all bread samples increased significantly during storage. FT-IR spectra showed that the integrated area of peaks around 1,041 and 1,150 cm(-1) wave lengths, which are related to the structure of starch retrogradation, increased with storage time. The X-ray diffractograms of aged breads indicated a B-type structure with the appearance of peaks at around 17A degrees, 19.5A degrees, and 22A degrees. An additional peak at 24A degrees was observed in breads stored for longer periods. Higher values of hardness and lower moisture contents were obtained for breads baked in an infrared-microwave combination oven, but the use of infrared-microwave combination oven did not result in excessive hardness after storage. Retrogradation enthalpies and total crystallinity values of breads did not show significant differences with baking type.The replacement of rice flour with chestnut flour and addition of xanthan-guar gum blend-DATEM mixture in formulations significantly delayed staling of gluten-free breads by decreasing moisture loss, hardness, retrogradation enthalpy, and total mass crystallinity.

The main objective of the study was to determine the effects of different baking ovens and different cake formulations on the degree of starch gelatinization during cake baking. Baking was performed in microwave, infrared-microwave combination, and conventional ovens. Starch gelatinization levels of fat free, 25% fat, and 25% Simplesse (TM)-containing cake samples were examined using differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) and rapid visco analyzer (RVA). Both DSC and RVA results showed that increasing bakin...
A study on the effects of different gums on dielectric properties and quality of breads baked in infrared-microwave combination oven
Keskin, Semin Ozge; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2007-01-01)
In this study, the effects of different gums on dielectric properties of doughs and breads baked in infrared-microwave combination oven were investigated. In addition, the quality parameters of breads formulated with different gums baked in infrared-microwave combination oven were determined. The gums used were xanthan, guar, xanthan-guar blend and kappa-carrageenan. The gums were added to the formulation at 0.5% concentration. The dielectric properties and quality parameters of breads baked in infrared-mic...
Optimisation of formulations and infrared-microwave combination baking conditions of chestnut-rice breads
Demirkesen, Ilkem; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil; Uysal, Nalan (Wiley, 2011-09-01)
The main objective of this study was to design gluten-free breads containing chestnut and rice flour and xanthan-guar gum blend to be baked in infrared-microwave combination oven. Response surface methodology (RSM) was used to optimise gluten-free bread formulations and processing conditions. Weight loss, firmness, specific volume and colour change of the breads were determined. Rice flour mixed with different proportions of chestnut flour and different emulsifier contents were used to prepare breads. The g...
Optimization of bread baking in a halogen lamp-microwave combination oven by response surface methodology
Demirekler, P; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2004-09-01)
The main objective of this study was to optimize the baking conditions of bread in a halogen lamp-microwave combination oven. Independent variables were the baking time (4, 4.5, 5, 5.5, and 6 min), the power of the microwaves (20, 30, 40, 50, and 60%), and the power of the upper and lower halogen lamps (40, 50, 60, 70, and 80%). The quality parameters measured were the weight loss, the color, the specific volume, the porosity, and the texture profile of the breads. For the optimization, the response surface...
Microwave Pretreatment for the Improvement of Physicochemical Properties of Carob Flour and Rice Starch-Based Electrospun Nanofilms
Uygun, Eylul; Yıldız, Eda; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-05-01)
The aim of this study was to determine the effects of microwave pretreatment on physicochemical characteristics of carob flour and rice starch-based nanofibers produced by electrospinning. The effects of microwave heating on production of nanofibers by electrospinning have not been studied before. Another aim of the study was to fabricate and characterize nanofibers by using different carob flour concentrations (3%, 5% w/v) and rice starch (0.5% w/v). Films were characterized by scanning electron microscopy...
