CHARACTERIZATION OF THE PORE STRUCTURE OF STARCH BASED FOOD MATERIALS

HICSASMAZ, Z
CLAYTON, JT
Macroscopic pore structure parameters (bulk density, true density and porosity) and microscopic pore structure parameters (percentage closed pore volume and pore size distribution) for a highly expanded type (Wonder White Sandwich Bread) and a relatively compact type (Chessmen Butter Cookies) starch based food material were determined and their pore structures were compared. Bulk density determined by solid displacement and true density determined by pycnometry yielded porosity measurements of 0.9 for bread and 0.6 for cookies. Percentage closed pore volume calculated by comparing the true density of porous samples of bread and cookies with the true density of their compacted pellets showed that both bread and cookies contained closed pores. Pore size distributions representative of the mercury porosimetry range (pores less than 200 mum in diameter) indicated that the smallest pore diameter was 6 Am for both bread and cookies. Pore size distributions obtained corresponded to about 16% and 65% of the total pore volume in bread and cookies, respectively. Both bread and cookie samples were found to undergo capillary hysteresis. Unidimensional mercury intrusion studies revealed a highly interconnected pore structure both in bread and cookies. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) photomicrographs used to evaluate the pore structure qualitatively showed no directional orientation of the pore structure.

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...
Preparation of functional surfaces using zeolite nanocrystals for biosensor and biomedical applications
Kirdeciler, Salih Kaan; Akata Kurç, Burcu; Turan, Raşit; Department of Micro and Nanotechnology (2012)
Zeolites are crystalline aluminosilicates which have highly ordered pore structures and high surface area. Also the tailorable surface properties, high ion-exchange capability, high chemical, thermal, and mechanical strength make these particles an important candidate for various application such as sensors, catalysis, dielectric materials, separation, and membrane technologies. Although zeolites have these unique properties, applications where zeolites are integrated into devices according to their applica...
Image Analysis of Gluten-free Breads Prepared with Chestnut and Rice Flour and Baked in Different Ovens
Demirkesen, Ilkem; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (2013-07-01)
In this study, the effects of chestnut flour and xanthan-guar gum blend-emulsifier DATEM mixture addition on macro- and microstructure of rice breads baked in conventional and infrared-microwave combination ovens were investigated by using the images obtained by a scanner and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Pore area fraction, pore size distribution, and roundness values of pores were determined. The highest pore area fraction values were obtained in breads prepared by replacement of 46 % of rice flour ...
Evaluation of Isolated Impact of Trans Fatty Acids on Short Dough Product
Sahin, Kubra; Mert, Behiç; Tekin, Aziz (2016-08-01)
In this study, the effects of trans fatty acids (TFAs) on rheological properties of dough (elastic moduli (G'), loss moduli (G''), complex modulus (G*)) and textural properties of dough and cookie (hardness) were studied. Two different groups of fat samples having different TFA composition but similar solid fat content (SFC) were prepared. Samples of the first group (group 1) had TFA between 0.0 and 56.23 %, while the samples of the second group (group 2) contained trans isomers ranging from 0.0 to 44.40 %....
Assessment of InSb photodetectors on Si substrates
Ozer, S; Beşikci, Cengiz (IOP Publishing, 2003-03-07)
We present the detailed characteristics of small area (33 x 33 mum(2)) InSb photodiodes grown on GaAs coated Si substrates by molecular beam epitaxy. In spite of very large lattice mismatch, 80 K peak detectivity of similar to1 x 10(10) cm Hz(1/2) W-1 has been measured under backside illumination without anti-reflection coating. Differential resistance at 80 K is limited by Ohmic leakage under small reverse bias and trap assisted tunnelling (TAT) under moderately large reverse bias. In the temperature range...
