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 ...
Production of food grade β-galactosidase from artisanal yogurt strains
(Taylor & Francis, 2010-01)
Superior artisanal isolates of thermophilic lactic acid bacteria producing high lactic acid and β-galactosidase were isolated from traditional Turkish yogurt samples from the Toros mountain region from a highly bio-diverse ...
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 ...
Development of antioxidant food packaging materials with controlled release properties
In this study, cellulose acetate (CA) films with different morphological features were prepared in order to control the release rates of low molecular weight natural antioxidants, L-ascorbic acid and L-tyrosine. Increasing ...
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)
Expanding horizons of active packaging: Design of consumer-controlled release systems helps risk management of susceptible individuals
The objective of this study was the development of zein based antilisterial films that contain a consumer-controlled and pH-triggered release mechanism for lysozyme (LYS). For this purpose, composite films were formed by ...
