The effect of various starch types (amylomaize, corn, waxymaize, pregelatinized tapioca) on quality attributes (texture, moisture content, oil content, color, coating pick up, cooking yield, volume and porosity) of deep-fat fried chicken nuggets were studied. Chicken samples, 0.04 m in diameter and 0.015 m in thickness, taken from the breast portion, were coated with batters composed of a 3:5 solid to water ratio by immersion. The solid content of batter formulations contained equal amounts of… 
Effects of different batter formulations on the quality of deep-fat-fried carrot slices
The effects of batter coating containing pregelatinized tapioca starch or maltodextrin at different concentrations (1, 3 or 5%) on product quality of deep-fat-fried carrot slices were evaluated.
Using modified starch to decrease the oil absorption in fried battered chicken
Batter is normally used prior to deep fat frying in order to improve the palatability and appearance of fried food. However, fried battered food contains a substantial amount of fat. The reduction of
How Batter Formulation Can Modify Fried Tempura-Battered Zucchini Chemical and Sensory Characteristics?
The results showed an improved golden–brown coloring of the crust without affecting oil uptake when maltodextrin was included in the batter formulation, which could represent an interesting strategy to improve the quality of battered fried vegetables.
Utilization of Oxidized and Cross-Linked Corn Starches in Wheat Flour Batter
ABSTRACT Starch is often added to batters to improve the texture and appearance of fried food products. However, comparisons of commercially available starches in terms of batter characteristics are
Oil Absorption and Drying in the Deep Fat Frying Process of Wheat Flour-Water Mixture, from Batter to Dough
Deep fat frying is the most popular unit operation in the world because this process providcs unique flavor and crisp texture (11. The high oil content in fried products is recognized as causing


Oil Uptake in Deep Fat Frying as Affected by Porosity
The porosity of a restructured potato product ranged from 0.089 to 0.168 after fluctuating subfreezing storage temperatures. A linear relation was found between oil uptake during frying and porosity
