Effect of fiber addition on gelatinization crystallinity of wheat starch

Dietary fibers (DF) have been shown to decrease postprandial glucose levels of starch-based foods. One possible explanation is that competition between starch and fiber for water may limit starch gelatinization. Less gelatinized, more crystalline starch structure is less susceptible to enzymatic hydrolysis. It is essential to investigate the gelatinization and crystallinity of fiber-added starch since the information obtained could be correlated with the extent of starch digestion. In the present study, short-chain (SC) and long-chain (LC) inulin (Orafti®GR; Orafti®HPX) and cellulose (Jelucel®PF300) were used to investigate the effect of soluble and insoluble DF on gelatinization and crystallinity of wheat starch. Starch with (50:50 fiber:starch) and without added fiber was mixed with water at three levels (dry-matter:water (w:v) ratios: 1:1, 1:2, and 1:4) for the analysis. Raw and heat-processed (90 °C, 10 min) samples were analyzed by differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) and X-Ray Diffractometer (XRD). LC inulin addition lowered the gelatinization enthalpy (GE) of the starch from 14.3±0.4 to 6.7±0.6 J/g-starch and from 16±1 to 7.2 ± 0.7 J/g-starch at 1:2 and 1:4 water ratio levels, respectively. At 1:2 and 1:4 water levels, SC inulin and cellulose addition did not significantly affect GE compared to the controls. At 1:1 water level, both SC and LC inulin added samples did not show any gelatinization peak while control and cellulose added samples showed low but similar GEs. Changes in the typical A-type crystalline pattern after the heat processing were observed with XRD diffractograms for the samples with and without fiber. Results indicated that the degree of gelatinization and crystallinity of heat-processed samples were affected by fiber addition and these data could be used with related in vitro studies to investigate the effect of DF on starch digestibility.


Effects of legume flours on batter rheology and cake physical quality
Aydoğdu, Ayça; ÖZKAHRAMAN, Canan; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (2016-08-25)
Legumes are good sources of proteins, carbohydrates, dietary fibers and minerals. Therefore, legume flours can be a good choice to obtain functional foods. The aim of this study is to examine the effect of legume flours (lentil, chickpea and pea) on rheological properties of cake batter and quality of legume cakes. Wheat flour was replaced partially (20 and 30%) by lentil, chickpea and pea flour to develop legume cake formulations. As quality parameters, weight loss, specific volume, hardness and color were...
Effects of buckwheat flour, gums and proteins on rheological properties of gluten-free batters and structure of cakes
Yıldız, Eda; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (Codon Publications, 2018-01-01)
The main objective of the study is to determine the effects of buckwheat flour concentration and different gum types (xanthan, guar gum) or proteins (soy protein and whey protein) on rheological properties of gluten-free cake batters and physical properties of cakes (weight loss, porosity, specific volume, hardness and macro structure). Gum containing batters exhibited higher apparent viscosities. More uniform distribution of gas cells were observed in whey protein containing samples compared to other batte...

This study aims to determine the stability improving effects of size-reduced dietary fibers in food emulsions. Orange zest fiber and corn fiber were microfluidized under high pressure (up to 15,000 psi). Model emulsions were prepared by adding 1, 2 and 3% of the fibers into the mixture of 3% whey protein isolate and 20 and 50% oil. These mixtures were homogenized through both colloid mill and microfluidizer to form model emulsions. Rheological properties such as flow and oscillation were measured with frequ...
Effect of high-pressure processing (HPP) on production and characterization of chia seed oil nanoemulsions
Kaya, Eda Ceren; Öztop, Halil Mecit; Alpas, Hami (2021-04-01)
© 2021 Elsevier LtdChia seed is a good source of protein, carbohydrate, fat, dietary fiber, antioxidants and contain poly unsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) higher than any other seed-based food sources. In this study, the extracted oil from chia seed by conventional and high pressure processing (HPP) extraction was used to prepare nanoemulsions. The spontaneous emulsification was approached at six concentrations (0.5, 1, 1.25, 1.5, 2.5 and 3% (w/w)) and four different surfactants to oil ratio (1,2,3 and 4 (w/w...
Effect of quercetin on mRNA and protein expressions of vitamin D metabolizing CYP27B1 and CYP24A1 in human embryonic kidney cell line (HEK-293)

Vitamin D is essential compound for life having role not only in the regulation of calcium metabolism but also in the regulation of cell proliferation, immune responses, cardiovascular homeostasis and nervous system. These wide range of actions occur with the enzymatic conversion of vitamin D to 1a,25-dihydroxyvitamin D by cytochrome P450 enzymes (CYPs). While CYP27B1 provides the synthesis of hormonally active form of Vitamin D, 1,25(OH)2D, CYP24A1 involves in catabolism of vitamin D. Quercetin, as one of ...
