Effects of psyllium and cellulose fibres on thermal, structural, and in vitro digestion behaviour of wheat starch

The study investigated the effects of adding different types of fibre (psyllium and cellulose) on in vitro digestion behaviour of wheat starch with its thermal and structural properties. Psyllium and cellulose fibres interfered with the wheat starch differently. Psyllium fibre hindered starch gelatinisation, restricted the loss of starch crystallinity, and decreased the accessibility of enzymes to starch. In contrast, cellulose fibre had no significant effect on gelatinisation and loss of crystallinity but limited the digestive enzyme mobility. The impact of psyllium was more pronounced than cellulose on reducing starch digestibility. Rapidly digestible starch fractions of the cooked starch reduced from between 57.90 +/- 0.60-69.72 +/- 0.46 (% in starch) to between 28.06 +/- 0.36-46.34 +/- 1.10 (% in starch) and 53.23 +/- 0.36-66.71 +/- 0.24 (% in starch) for psyllium and cellulose fibre, respectively. This information could be helpful to design foods containing starch with reduced digestibility for a healthy diet.


Effects of spray drying temperature and additives on the stability of serine alkaline protease powders
Namaldi, Aysegul; Çalık, Pınar; Uludağ, Yusuf (2006-01-01)
In this study, after production by recombinant Bacillus subtilis (BGSC-1A751), carrying pHV1431:: subc gene in the complex medium and separation of solids from the fermentation broth, serine alkaline protease (SAP) was dried in order to investigate the stabilization during spray drying and subsequent storage. The effect of air inlet temperature of the spray dryer between T = 70 and 130 degrees C and the effect of protective additives, glucose and maltodextrin, at 0-2% (w/v) on SAP activity during spray dryi...
Effect Of Volatile Fatty Acids On Methane Production İn Ozone Pre-Treated Anaerobic Digesters
Tuncay, Sera; İçgen, Bülent (null; 2018-09-07)
Anaerobic digestion (AD) is a biological wastewater sludge treatment process which transforms organic matter into methane-rich biogas. AD involves four key steps as hydrolysis, acidogenesis, acetogenesis and methanogenesis, respectively. In hydrolysis, a rate-limiting step, large organic polymers are broken down into simpler monomers. AD with ozone pre-treatment is used for the acceleration of this rate limiting step by converting solids into more easily biodegradable matter. As a result, sludge biodegradab...

We analysed changes in the abundance, biomass and cell size of the microbial food web community (bacteria, heterotrophic nanoflagellates, ciliates) at contrasting nutrient concentrations and temperatures during a simulated heat wave. We used 24 mesocosms mimicking shallow lakes in which two nutrient levels (unenriched and enriched by adding nitrogen and phosphorus) and three different temperature scenarios (ambient, IPCC A2 scenario and A2+%50) are simulated (4 replicates of each). Experiments using the mes...

The effects of hydraulic retention time and alkali treatment on methane production rate from the semicontinuous anaerobic digestion of 2 % sunflower-head/water mixtures were investigated. The experiments were carried out in laboratory-scale fermenters, fed with 1 liter of untreated, 2 g NaOH/100 g total solids (TS), and 5 g NaOH/100 g TS alkali-treated sunflower-head/water mixtures, respectively, and maintained at 55-degrees-C Digestion experiments were performed for hydraulic retention times of 8, 10, and ...
Effects of addition of different fibers on rheological characteristics of cake batter and quality of cakes
Aydogdu, AYÇA; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (2018-02-01)
The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of addition of dietary fibers on rheological properties of batter and cake quality. Wheat flour was replaced by 5 and 10% (wt%) oat, pea, apple and lemon fibers. All cake batters showed shear thinning behavior. Incorporation of fibers increased consistency index (k), storage modulus (G') and loss modulus (GaEuro(3)). As quality parameters, specific volume, hardness, weight loss, color and microstructure of cakes were investigated. Cakes containing oat and...
