Oil migration in confectionery products results in undesired quality changes of confections such as fat bloom. Oil migration and the resulting bloom formation in chocolate could be an important quality defect in a confectionery product. This study addressed to evaluate mass transfer of liquid oil on two-layer chocolate model systems prepared from hazelnut paste over different dark chocolate formulations by utilizing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Through the use of MRI, it becomes easier to predict the rate of migration and the effect of different ingredients on bloom formation. For five chocolate formulations stored at 30 A degrees C over a time frame of 22 days, experimental data acquired through MRI were modeled using a Fickian-based mathematical model to calculate diffusion coefficient (D). Using two different equations for boundary condition at upper chocolate surface, two models were evaluated and logistic type boundary model was shown to fit exhibit a better fit. In addition, associated constants (C-0, beta, t(0)) for time dependent upper boundary conditions were determined. Average diffusivities of all samples varied in the order of 10(-11) m(2)/s. This study addressed the potential use of MRI for visualization and quantification of migration for different chocolate formulations.


Mathematical Modeling and Use of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) for Oil Migration in Chocolate Confectionery Systems
Cikrikci, SEVİL; Öztop, Halil Mecit (2017-03-01)
Oil migration is a common problem in chocolate confectionery products leading to quality defects, particularly fat bloom. Several factors such as contact area, ratio of the two fat phases, type of the fat, solid fat content, presence of non-fat solid particles, particle size, viscosity, structure, concentration gradient of triacylglycerols (TAGs), and storage temperature have all effect on migration rate. Mechanism of oil migration has still not been clearly understood, but possible mechanisms have been sug...
Mathematical modelling and validation of oil migration on a model chocolate system using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
Cikrikci, S.; Öztop, Halil Mecit (2016-08-23)
Oil migration is a common problem in chocolate confectionery products leading to quality defects, particularly fat bloom. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is among the most novel techniques as being a non-destructive method to monitor and quantify migration. The main objective of this study was to model oil migration of peanut butter over dark chocolate layer system stored at 30°C with the predictions of a Fickian-based mathematical model. For this purpose, signal intensity (SI) values of chocolate layers c...
Investigating Oil Migration in Two Layer Chocolate Systems with Different Hazelnut Paste and Cream Formulations Over Chocolate Layer by Using Magnetic Resonance Imaging MRI Technique
Çıkrıkcı, Sevil; Öztop, Halil Mecit (null; 2015-08-10)
Oil migration is a common problem in chocolate confectionery products leading to quality defects particularly fat bloom. Although there are so many methods to monitor and quantify migration, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is among the most novel technique as being a non-destructive method. The main objective of this study was to quantify oil migration from two different hazelnut pastes (oil percentage as 44% and 38.4%) and one hazelnut cream (oil percentage as 30%) products into one type of dark chocolate...
Size-Controlled Preparation of Cellulose Microspheres and Preliminary Investigation of their Use as Additives in Cosmetic Products
Türkyılmaz, Serhan; Demir, Başak Burçak; Akbulut, Doğan (2021-03-26)
Plastic microbeads (PMs) having sizes in the micrometer range (10-1000 m) are added to cosmetic products as colorants, as exfoliating agents, and as additives to improve spreadability and texture. The use of PMs in cosmetic products contributes significantly to microplastic pollution in aquatic ecosystems. Not only may PMs themselves be toxic to certain aquatic life forms, but as part of formulations of rinse-off cosmetics they may also adsorb and concentrate toxic chemicals on their way through waste wate...
Optimization of CO₂ EOR and storage design under uncertainity
Bender, Serdar; Akın, Serhat; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2016)
The combination of CO₂ enhanced oil recovery (EOR) and permanent CO₂ storage in mature oil reservoirs have the potential to provide a critical near-term solution for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In the literature, although there are many studies about CO₂ storage and EOR, only a few studies have focused on maximizing both the oil recovery and the CO₂ storage. Moreover, these studies are either experimental or conducted using synthetic reservoir models. Typically, pure CO₂ has the property of mixing wi...
