Separation of whey components by using ceramic composite membranes
Ceramic supports were prepared from alumina powder and dip-coated with zirconia sol. The ceramic composite membranes prepared were characterized with respect to their microstructure/pore structures. The supports were 40% ...
Kinetic modelling of lactic acid production from whey by Lactobacillus casei (NRRL B-441)
The biomass growth, lactic acid production and lactose utilisation kinetics of lactic acid production from whey by Lactobacillus casei was studied. Batch fermentation experiments were performed at controlled pH and temperature ...
Detection of adulteration of extra-virgin olive oil by chemometric analysis of mid-infrared spectral data
This study focuses on the detection and quantification of extra-virgin olive oil adulteration with different edible oils using mid-infrared (IR) spectroscopy with chemometrics. Mid-IR spectra were manipulated with wavelet ...
Water vapour barrier performance of corn-zein coated polypropylene (PP) packaging films
The novel film structure of corn-zein coated on polypropylene (PP) synthetic film for packaging industry was developed to examine the feasibility of resulting coated films as an alternative water barrier performance for ...
Antimicrobial and antioxidant activity of edible zein films incorporated with lysozyme, albumin proteins and disodium EDTA
In this study, partially purified lysozyme was incorporated into zein films in combination with chickpea albumin extract (CPAE), bovine serum albumin (BSA) and disodium EDTA. The zein films showed an inherent free radical ...
Effect of atrazine on algal contamination and sugarcane shoots during photoautotrophic micropropagation
(American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, 2003-01)
A laboratory procedure was developed for obtaining and maintaining photoautotrophic cultures ofsugarcane shoots in vitro for three generations. Algae contamination in vessels was a problem for photoautotrophic growth under ...
Determination of the effects of biomaterials on human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC)
(European IOS Press, 2002)
Acclimation to heat during incubation. 2. Embryo composition and residual egg yolk sac fatty acid profiles in chicks
(Poultry Science Association, 2008-06)
The aim of the research was to evaluate embryo composition and changes in egg yolk fatty acid composition during embryonic development as a function of incubation temperature and age of breeders. Eggs obtained from a common ...
Consistency of polyphenol oxidase (PPO) thermostability in ripening apricots (Prunus armeniaca L.): Evidence for the presence of thermostable PPO forming and destabilizing mechanisms in apricots
(American Chemical Society, 2003-04)
Destabilization of thermostable polyphenol oxidase (TS-PPO) during the ripening of peaches has been previously shown (Yemenicioǧlu, A; Cemeroǧlu, B. Tr. J. Agric. For. 1998, 22, 261-265). This work studied the effect of ...
Fault detection and diagnosis in a food pasteurization process with Hidden Markov Models
Hidden Markov Models (HMM) are used to detect abnormal operation of dynamic processes and diagnose sensor and actuator faults. The method is illustrated by monitoring the operation of a pasteurization plant and diagnosing ...
