The objective of this research was to develop a rapid spectroscopic technique as an alternative method for the differentiation and authentication of gelatin sources in food products by using attenuated total reflectance Fourier transform infrared (ATR-FTIR) spectra combined with chemometrics. Clear discrimination and classification of all the studied(More)
This study aimed to investigate the role of in situ exopolysaccharide (EPS) production by EPS(+)Streptococcus thermophilus strains on physicochemical, rheological, molecular, microstructural and sensory properties of ice cream in order to develop a fermented and consequently functional ice-cream in which no stabilizers would be required in ice-cream(More)
In the present work, fenugreek seed gum (FSG)/clay nanocomposite films were prepared with nanoclays (Na+ montmorillonite [MMT], halloysite [HNT] and Nanomer® I.44 P [NM]) at different amounts (0, 2.5, 5.0 and 7.5g clay/100g FSG) by solution casting method and characterized. Increasing amount of nanoclay significantly (P<0.05) improved oxygen barrier and(More)
Computer simulations are commonly used to model emergencies and discover useful evacuation strategies. The top-down conceptual models typically used for such simulations do not account for differences in individual behavior and how they affect other individuals. To create a more realistic model, this study uses Agent-Based Modeling (ABM) to simulate the(More)
