Abstract This study examined the influences of domestic processing conditions applied by consumers on firmness, colour and amount of phytochemicals and liking and sensory attributes intensity rating of carrots. The aim was to identify a cooking method and time that yields carrots with higher amount of β-carotene while maintaining consumer liking. Instrumentally measured firmness and colour showed comparable degradation trends between cooking methods. While boiling showed a significant decrease… Expand

Influence of boiling, steaming, and sous-vide on oral processing parameters of celeriac (Apium graveolens var. rapaceum)
Abstract Influence of three cooking methods (boiling, steaming, and sous-vide) and three cooking times (15, 30, and 45 min) was studied concerning oral processing of celeriac. Jointly, colorExpand
Taste intensities of ten vegetables commonly consumed in the Netherlands.
Bitterness has been suggested to be the main reason for the limited palatability of several vegetables. Vegetable acceptance has been associated with preparation method. However, the taste intensityExpand
Sweetness but not sourness enhancement increases acceptance of cucumber and green capsicum purees in children
It is concluded that enhancement of sweetness increases acceptance of cucumber and green capsicum purees in most children whereas enhancement of sourness is better accepted by only a few children. Expand

Medios de cultivo a partir de residuos agroindustriales sólidos para el crecimiento de la levadura saccharomyces cerevisiae
The ICA analyzed to compare the growth of the strain in the different natural environments showed that the growth was very little, but the explanation was that the strain of S. cerevisiae was with several previous rings and had lost its vitality, since not even the PDA standard culture medium produced a highly productive ICA.

Generally, steaming and microwave steaming were preferred for certain vegetables, even by those who normally boil them, although it may be more convincing to use vegetables such as broccoli that are perceived as being most acceptable when steamed. Expand
Carotenoid Content and Physicochemical and Sensory Characteristics of Carrot Chips Deep‐Fried in Different Oils at Several Temperatures
The influence of deep-frying using different oils and temperatures on carotenoid content and physico-chemical and sensory characteristics of carrot chips was investigated. Sliced carrots wereExpand
Factors contributing to taste and quality of commercially processed strained carrots
Commercially processed strained carrots were obtained from three different processing locations over a 1-year span. Selected carrot lots exhibited both desirable and undesirable sensory attributesExpand
The comparative evaluation of the nutrient composition and sensory attributes of four vegetables cooked by different methods
The following four vegetables; beans (Phaseolus vulgaris var. vulgaris), brinjal (Solanum melongena var. esculentum), knol-khol (Brassica oleracea var. caulorapa) and radish (Raphanus raphanistrumExpand
Effects of different cooking methods on nutritional and physicochemical characteristics of selected vegetables.
An overall increase of TEAC, FRAP, and TRAP values was observed in all cooked vegetables, probably because of matrix softening and increased extractability of compounds, which could be partially converted into more antioxidant chemical species. Expand
Consumer behaviour towards vegetables: a study on domestic processing of broccoli and carrots by Dutch households.
A wide variation in domestic processing of broccoli and carrots is found and the findings of the present study can be used to optimise cooking to yield vegetables that meet consumer's specific sensory preference and are higher in nutrients, and as well as to communicate with target consumer groups.

Study on combined effects of blanching and sonication on different quality parameters of carrot juice
The present results suggest that combination of blanching and sonication may be employed in food industry to produce high-quality carrot juice with reduced enzyme activity and improved nutrition. Expand
Thermal processing enhances the nutritional value of tomatoes by increasing total antioxidant activity.
Thermal processing enhanced the nutritional value of tomatoes by increasing the bioaccessible lycopene content and total antioxidant activity and are against the notion that processed fruits and vegetables have lower nutritional value than fresh produce. Expand
