Impact of a direct incubation of egg yolk with phospholipase D (PLD) from Streptomyces chromofuscus was investigated with respect to its effect on rheological and emulsifying properties. Egg yolk has been shown to be a suitable substrate for incubation with PLD after a slight dilution with water (70/30, w/w). A considerable increase of egg yolk viscosity(More)
The effects of a direct incubation of egg yolk (EY) by phospholipase D (PLD) with respect to EY structure and interface properties of oil-in-water (o/w)-emulsions prepared with this EY were investigated. PLD incubation of EY mainly converts phosphatidylcholine into phosphatidic acid (PA). EY structures were characterised using circular dichroism and(More)
OBJECTIVE Recent evidence indicates that heat-enhanced food advanced glycation end products (AGEs) adversely affect vascular function. The aim of this study was to examine the acute effects of an oral load of heat-treated, AGE-modified β-lactoglobulins (AGE-BLG) compared with heat-treated, nonglycated BLG (C-BLG) on vascular function in patients with type 2(More)
Although the exocrine gland frequently has I/R-associated complications such as posttransplant pancreatitis, hypoxia-induced dysfunction of pancreatic endocrine tissue is rarely observed. However, sympathetic hypersensitivity is accused of impaired endocrine function observed in human pancreatic grafts. These tissue-confined differences in susceptibility(More)
An integrated approach is described with respect to acrylamide minimization in heated foodstuffs. All relevant variables have to be considered and the main focus is on maintaining the expected product quality. The role of the processes at the interface between product and heating medium during processing is characterized for the case of frying operations.(More)
Fried potato products have become very popular foods over the last decades. High quality standards have been established for these products by the food industry including uniform brown color and crispness. During frying, Maillard reactions takes place which contribute to color and taste development in these products. However, safety aspects are also(More)
