Legumes are good sources of proteins, carbohydrates, dietary fibers and minerals. Therefore, legume flours can be a good choice to obtain functional foods. The aim of this study is to examine the effect of legume flours (lentil, chickpea and pea) on rheological properties of cake batter and quality of legume cakes. Wheat flour was replaced partially (20 and 30%) by lentil, chickpea and pea flour to develop legume cake formulations. As quality parameters, weight loss, specific volume, hardness and color were investigated. Rheological characteristics of batters were modeled by Power law. Chickpea and pea flours with 30% concentration had the highest consistency index. Legume flour containing cakes had lower weight loss than control cakes which was related with legume flour's strong water binding capacity. Correlated with rheological properties, cakes containing 30% pea flour displayed the smallest specific volume and the largest hardness value. The other legume cakes were not significantly different from control cakes in terms of specific volume and hardness.

© 2021 Elsevier LtdChia seed is a good source of protein, carbohydrate, fat, dietary fiber, antioxidants and contain poly unsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) higher than any other seed-based food sources. In this study, the extracted oil from chia seed by conventional and high pressure processing (HPP) extraction was used to prepare nanoemulsions. The spontaneous emulsification was approached at six concentrations (0.5, 1, 1.25, 1.5, 2.5 and 3% (w/w)) and four different surfactants to oil ratio (1,2,3 and 4 (w/w...

Carob bean flour which contains significant amount of dietary fiber, amino acid and minerals can be an alternative flour to enrich nutritional value of gluten free cakes. The objective of this study was to determine the effects of partial replacement of rice flour by carob bean flour at different concentrations (10%, 20%, 30%) and addition of different types of gums (xanthan gum, and guar gum), on specific gravity and rheological properties of gluten free cake batters. In addition, quality of cakes (weight ...
Effect of fiber addition on gelatinization crystallinity of wheat starch
Güven, Özge; Şensoy, İlkay (null; 2019-11-12)
Dietary fibers (DF) have been shown to decrease postprandial glucose levels of starch-based foods. One possible explanation is that competition between starch and fiber for water may limit starch gelatinization. Less gelatinized, more crystalline starch structure is less susceptible to enzymatic hydrolysis. It is essential to investigate the gelatinization and crystallinity of fiber-added starch since the information obtained could be correlated with the extent of starch digestion. In the present study, sho...
Utilization of wheat bran fiber in crackers
Şahin, Ezgi; Mert, Behiç; Department of Food Engineering (2011)
Dietary fiber is a component in the structure of plants which is an important aspect of diet and nutrition. The demand of fiber has increased significantly, as consumers recognize its health benefits such as reduction of risk of colon cancer, cholesterol lowering affect, regulating blood glucose levels and low calorie intake. Therefore food manufacturers pay more attention to develop new products containing high fiber content. Of all the categories of food products, bakery products are the most common fiber...
Effects of buckwheat flour, gums and proteins on rheological properties of gluten-free batters and structure of cakes

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...
