Correlation between physical and sensorial properties of gummy confections with different formulations during storage

Gummy confections are popular products formulated with sucrose, glucose syrups, gelling agents, acids, flavourings and colouring agents. They have various commercial types in terms of formulation, texture, taste and colour, however, there is inadequate investigation on storage behavior of these products. The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of glucose syrup:sucrose ratio (1.1 and 1.5), starch (0% and 1.5%) and gelatine concentration (3% and 6%) on texture profile, colour and sensory properties of gummy confections during storage. It was also aimed to correlate sensorial changes with physical properties measured by instrumental techniques during storage at 10 degrees C, 20 degrees C and 30 degrees C. The highest increase in hardness was observed for formulation with 1.1 glucose syrup:sucrose ratio, no starch and 6% gelatine. Storage temperature had no significant effect on cohesiveness. It was seen that rate of colour change increased with storage time and temperature. Formulation with glucose syrup:sucrose ratio of 1.5, no starch and 6% gelatine had the highest sensory scores. This formulation was found to be the most stable formulation in terms of hardness and gumminess, meaning that it would need a stable mastication during storage. Sensorial changes of gummy confections were found to be correlated with instrumental results of texture and colour.


Monitoring the effects of divalent ions (Mn+2 and Ca+2) in heat-set whey protein gels
Öztop, Halil Mecit; MCCARTHY, Michael J.; ROSENBERG, Moshe (Elsevier BV, 2014-04-01)
Exploring the effects of cations in whey protein-based gels (WPG) is of importance when these gels are used for controlled release applications in food systems. The objective of this study was to evaluate both water uptake and cation release from heat-set WPGs. Magnetic Resonance Imaging and NMR relaxometry were employed to study the uptake and release. A non-paramagnetic (Ca+2) and a paramagnetic cation (Mn+2) were incorporated into the WPG as model divalent cations. Cylindrical pieces of WPGs with mangane...
Effect of high hydrostatic pressure on background microflora and furan formation in fruit pur,e based baby foods
KULTUR, Gulcin; MISRA, N. N.; BARBA, Francisco J.; KOUBAA, Mohamed; GÖKMEN, VURAL; Alpas, Hami (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2018-03-01)
The baby foods industry is currently seeking technologies to pasteurize products without formation of processing contaminants such as furan. This work demonstrates the applicability of high hydrostatic pressure (HHP) as a non-thermal decontamination intervention for fruit pur,e based baby foods. HHP processing was evaluated at 200, 300, and 400 MPa pressures, for 5, 10 and 15 min of treatment times at 25, 35 and 45 A degrees C. HHP application at 400 MPa, 45 A degrees C for 15 min ensured complete inactivat...

Filtration rate and resistance are affected by the operations prior to filtration in fruit juice production lines. In this research, the effects of depectinization and clarification on filtration resistance and rate were evaluated. Filtration studies on raw juice, depectinized juice and depectinized plus clarified juice were compared It was observed that pretreatments reduce the resistance considerably.
Influence of alcohols on citric acid production by Aspergillus niger A-9 entrapped in polyacrylamide gels
Yaykasli, KO; Demirel, G; Yasar, A (Elsevier BV, 2005-10-01)
In this study, the production of citric acid has been achieved by using Aspergillus niger conidiaspores, entrapped in polyacrylamide gels, and the factors that affect this production have been investigated. On citric acid production the effect of starting sucrose concentration (100-180 g/l), the initial nitrogen concentration (0-0.3 g/l), the effect of the methanol concentration in 100ml feeding medium (0-6 ml), and finally the effect of ethanol concentration (0-6 ml) in 100 ml feeding medium were studied a...
Effects of different emulsifier types, fat contents, and gum types on retardation of staling of microwave-baked cakes
Seyhun, N; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (Wiley, 2003-08-01)
The effects of different types of emulsifiers, gums, and fat contents on the retardation of staling of microwave-baked cakes were investigated. First, different types of emulsifiers (DATEM, Lecigran, and Purawave) at three different fat contents (50%, 25%, and 0%) were added to cake formulations to retard staling of microwave-baked cakes. Then, three types of gums (guar gum, xanthan gum, and methylcellulose) were added to the optimum formulations chosen. As a control, cakes formulated without any emulsifier...
