Olive paste is recognized not only for its excellent taste and quality, but also for its health promoting effects. However, there is a limited range of olive products in the market. The aim of the present study was the production of a new organic olive product in sausage-like form which has sliceable properties by using organic olive paste and additives. The physicochemical, microbiological, sensorial and textural characteristics of the final product were also determined. The suggested olive product with 19.7% oil content and 3% organic locust bean gum which showed the most desirable texture characteristics allowing the solidified olive paste to turn into sliceable sausage form, is considered advisable for industrial production. Thus, the organic production of an innovative added value olive product in sausage-like form could meet the evolving expectations of consumers, boost food industry's research and development, and increase the profitability of the producer, with concomitant harmonization with the current environmental and nutritional trends.


Monitoring freshness of chicken breast by using natural halochromic curcumin loaded chitosan/PEO nanofibers as an intelligent package
Yıldız, Eda; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Kahyaoğlu, Leyla Nesrin (2021-02-15)
© 2020 Elsevier B.V.Intelligent packaging is important to get information about real time quality of foods. The objective of this study was to develop an electrospun nanofiber halochromic pH sensor film using curcumin, chitosan (CS) and polyethylene oxide (PEO) to monitor chicken freshness. Conductivity and rheological behavior of CS/PEO/curcumin solutions were measured to understand the effect of solution properties on the morphology of the fibers. The morphological characteristics of nanofiber films were ...
Using multi-slice-multi-echo images with NMR relaxometry to assess water and fat distribution in coated chicken nuggets

Characterizing water and fat distributions in fried foods is of major importance in terms of taste and nutrition. The objective of this study was to introduce a new technique to quantify water and fat distributions of chicken nuggets coated with methylcellulose (MC) through the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and NMR relaxometry. Multi-slice-multi-echo (MSME-Spin Echo based) images were performed on a 1.03 T spectrometer for the whole chicken nuggets to obtain relaxation time distribution of differe...

Caking is one of the most important factors affecting fluidity and quality of powdered food samples by distorting the stability and functionality. Time-Domain Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (TD-NMR) techniques are frequently used in the polymer, drug and food industries since they require no initial sample preparation before the measurement and provide rapid results. The main goal of the study is to quantify crystallinity by using TD-NMR, Solid Echo (SE) and Magic Sandwich Echo (MSE) sequences. The method was f...
Food processing and digestion: The effect of extrusion process on bioactive compounds in extrudates with artichoke leaf powder and resulting in vitro cynarin and cynaroside bioaccessibility
Güven, Özge; Şensoy, İlkay (Elsevier BV, 2018-01-01)
Although herbal ingredients could be used to increase bioactive compounds in food products, it is more crucial to investigate the effect of processing on their bioaccessibility and their content. In this study, artichoke leaf powder (ALP) was added to wheat flour (WF) at ratios of 0:100, 3:97, 6:94 and 9:91 g ALP:g WF on dry basis. The effect of extrusion process on the bioactive compounds themselves and in vitro bioaccessibilities of cynarin and cynaroside, which are found in ALP, were investigated. Total ...
The effects of gums on macro and micro-structure of breads baked in different ovens
Ozkoc, Semin Ozge; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (Elsevier BV, 2009-12-01)
In this study, the effects of gums on macro and micro-structure of breads baked in different ovens (infrared (IR)-microwave combination and conventional) were investigated by the help of image and SEM analysis, respectively. The gums used were xanthan, guar, K-carrageenan and xanthan-guar blend. The gums were added to the formulation at 0.5% concentration. As a control, no gum added formulations were used. Results of Image analysis demonstrated that xanthan-guar gum blend addition improved bread quality wit...
