A review on grain and nut deterioration and design of the dryers for safe storage with special reference to Turkish hazelnuts

Turkey produces about 80% of the total hazelnut crop of the world. About 75% of the production are exported. In Turkey hazelnuts are traditionally sun dried, and may be subject to mold growth and subsequent mycotoxin formation due to prolonged drying time under humid and rainy weather conditions. Drying hazelnuts in a reasonable time after harvest is necessary for mycotoxin-free, high-quality products. In general, nuts and cereals contaminated by the toxins pose a potential hazard not only to the people of the producer countries, but also to people of the importing countries, if they should be regarded as safe by inefficient sampling plans, therefore preventing toxin formation actually benefits very large populations.


Characterization of lactobacillus delbrueckii subspecies bulgaricus and streptococcus thermophilus as lactic cultures isolated from traditional Turkish yogurts and subtyping of streptococcus thermophilus using crispr analysis and mlst

Yogurt is a characteristic fermented dairy product of Turkey and Bulgaria and its popularity has been increasing all over the world. Streptococcus thermophilus and Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus (Lactobacillus bulgaricus) are used together as starter culture in production of yogurt. The objective of this study was to isolate and characterize yogurt cultures from traditionally produced yogurts (i.e. produced without using commercial starter cultures) and to search the genotypic diversity within ...

The fact that many hazelnut producers have been moving away from hazelnut to the production of alternative crops is highly ironic as Turkey is one of the top producers of hazelnut in the world. The intriguing migration of producers from hazelnut to crops like kiwi needs to be explained for a variety of reasons. First of all, this has serious implications for the livelihoods of producers, and secondly it has implications for the regional and national economy. This thesis aims to analyze national and internat...
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...
Antioxidant capacities of Gundelia tournefortii L. extracts and inhibition on glutathione-S-transferase activity
Çoruh, Nursen; Ozgokce, F.; Iscan, M. (Elsevier BV, 2007-01-01)
Gundelia tournefortii L. is an important food source and a well-known medicinal plant in Eastern Anatolia. Therapeutic effects of medicinal plants are known to be closely related to their antioxidant capacities. Antioxidant activities of G. tournefortii, both for the aerial parts and seeds, were investigated by using both 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical scavenging and lipid peroxidation inhibition methods. The seeds were found to have higher antioxidant potential than the aerial, with IC50 valu...
Recent developments of oleogel utilizations in bakery products

Available evidence from clinical trials suggests the replacement of saturated fatty acids with polyunsaturated fatty acids as well as with essential fatty acids to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Thus, the importance of limiting of saturated fatty acid intake as well as the removal of trans-fatty acids from the diet have also emphasized. Conversely, recent studies have questioned the simple explanation of the relationship of dietary saturated fats and of individual saturated fatty acids to cardio...
