As the consumer expectation for healthy and functional foods is increasing, utilization of many alternative ingredients is proceeding constantly in food production nowadays. Soybean products are among these ingredients since they involve high quality proteins, isoflavones and they are free from cholesterol, lactose and gluten. Chocolate is one of the most widely consumed food products in the world and rheology of chocolate is vital for its quality and production cost. Rheological properties of chocolate are directly related to its composition, texture, the amount and time of shear rate applied and temperature. Ingredients' physical properties influence some parameters of chocolate such as color, sensory evaluation and texture. Textural properties of chocolate affected by also rheology and gives information about the quality of chocolate. In this study, the rheological properties of vegan chocolates prepared by soy milk powder (SoMP) and soy protein isolate (SPI) were investigated and compared to milk chocolates containing whole milk powder (WMP) and skimmed milk powder (SMP). Textural and sensory properties of all chocolate types were also determined. Various conching times (2, 4, 6 hours) are applied. Physical properties of powders were also determined to associate with rheological and textural properties of the chocolates. The rheological properties were measured by using a rheometer Hardness of chocolates measured by texture profile analyzer by using a three-point bend probe The best models fit to the rheological data (R 2 >0,99) were Casson, Hershel-Bulkley and Bingham models.

Tufan, Büşra; Şahin, Serpil; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Department of Food Engineering (2018)
Changing consumer demands have directed food industry into development of alternative food products in terms of nutrition, authenticity, innovation and functionality. The main objective of this study was to develop wafer sheets by partial replacement of wheat flour by bean, carob, chickpea and lentil flours. In this regard, firstly nutritional components of the flours were analyzed. Wheat flour was replaced by 10%, 20% and 30% legume flour and its effects on specific gravity and rheology of the batters were...
The effects of microfluidization on rheological and textural properties of gluten-free corn breads
OZTURK, Oguz Kaan; Mert, Behiç (2018-03-01)
This study presents the potential of microfluidization as a value adding process to corn gluten meal (CGM), which is often used as animal feed and is underutilized in food industry. In this study, we aimed to improve water holding ability of corn gluten and to investigate possibility of using this zein-rich byproduct as the main ingredient in gluten-free bread formulations. For this reason, microfluidization as a milling process for CGM, and its effects on rheological and textural properties of gluten-free ...
Investigation of surface properties of quince seed extract and assessment of its performance as a novel polymeric surfactant
Kırtıl, Emrah; Öztop, Halil Mecit; Department of Food Engineering (2020-12-30)
The use of sustainable ingredients from natural sources has shown an increase in recent years. For stabilization of dispersions, proteins and polysaccharides are increasingly being used in combination for their synergistic properties. Various studies have focused on developing biopolymers that merge the functions of proteins and polysaccharides in a single molecule. Quince seed extract (QSE) is a natural biopolymer that display this exceptional attribute in its native state. However, the literature is still...
Investigation of physico-chemical properties of soy proteins glycated with d-psicose
Beylikçi, Sermet Can; Öztop, Halil Mecit; Department of Food Engineering (2019)
Proteins are one of the most essential food components that is constantly used by food industry because of their functional properties as well as their nutritional value. Soy protein has become popular among the usable protein resources because of its various functional properties such as foaming, gelling, emulsifying and water holding capacities. However, certain drawbacks of soy protein like limited solubility especially in acidic environment, emerge the need for modification for further use in broader va...
Evaluation of the effects of maltodextrin and microfluidization on the rheological and textural properties of cookie and cookie dough
Topaloğlu, Tuğçe; Yücel, Umut; Department of Food Engineering (2015)
Several health problems like diabetes and obesity are associated with consumption of highly fatty food, leading consumers to be more conscious about what they eat. This concern has been a driving factor for manufacturers to research and develop low- or reduced-fat products. Therefore, the baking industry finds new ways to respond to the demands. For this reason, fat replacement in bakery products has gained a popularity. Maltodextrin is commonly used to trim fat from bakery products because it gives some pr...
