    Sensory characterization of instant tom yum soup 

    Kamolnate Kitsawad; Nasara Tuntisripreecha (2016)

    Kamolnate Kitsawad 5.86Assumption University of Thailand Nasara Tuntisripreecha Abstract Instant tom yum soups are widely available in the market in various forms, powder, paste, and liquid. Despite the similarity in the use of key ingredients, each product is unique in flavor. The aim of this study was to characterize the sensory profile of instant tom yum soup. Descriptive analysis was performed to examine the sensory profiles of 12 instant tom yum soups. Sensory descriptors were generated; appearance (color, amount of oil, cloudiness), a...

    Zymomonas mobilis biofilm formation on different types of carriers 

    Tatsaporn Todhanakasem; Rashmi Tiwari (2016-06)

    Zymomonas mobilis biofilm have been proposed to enhance the bioethanol production from agricultural derived materials. Z. mobilis biofilm reactor has been prospected to be used for a large scale bioethanol production. The cost effective carrier for Z. mobilis biofilm reactor was searched. This study investigated the biofilm forming abilities of Z. mobilisstrain TISTR 551 and ZM4 on biotic (loofah and corn silk) or abiotic carriers (flatted sheet polyvinyl chloride, PVC). Biofilm formation was visualized for 3 consecutive days under the bright-f...

    Encapsulation of protease from Aspergillus oryzae and lipase from Thermomycess lanuginoseus using alginate and different copolymer type 

    Thu, Truong Thi Mong; Wunwisa Krasaekoopt (2016-07)

    Although the application of enzymes in food as a food processing aid and enzyme supplement is ofinterest and widely used, the enzymes can be easily deactivated or lose their activity due to many causessuch as pH and moisture as well as through the introduction of incompatible ingredients during foodprocessing and storage. These problems can be solved by the encapsulation technique, especially in a gelmatrix. The influences were studied of the alginate concentration, types of copolymer and their con-centrations on the bead size, encapsulation yie...

    Development of corn silk as a biocarrier for Zymomonas mobilis biofilms in ethanol production from rice straw 

    Tatsaporn Todhanakasem; Rashmi Tiwari; Pornthap Thanonkeo (2016-04)

    Z. mobilis cell immobilization has been proposed as an effective means of improving ethanol production. In this work, polystyrene and corn silk were used as biofilm developmental matrices for Z. mobilis ethanol production with rice straw hydrolysate as a substrate. Rice straw was hydrolyzed by dilute sulfuric acid (H2SO4) and enzymatic hydrolysis. The final hydrolysate contained furfural (271.95 ± 76.30 ppm), 5-hydroxymethyl furfural (0.07 ± 0.00 ppm), vanillin (1.81 ± 0.00 ppm), syringaldehyde (5.07 ± 0.83 ppm), 4- hydroxybenzaldehy...

    Properties and applications of different probiotic delivery systems 

    Wunwisa Krasaekoopt (2012)

    Probiotic products should contain and maintain viable cells during the product shelf life at least above therapeutic minimum level for the benefit of consumers. Due to their generally poor viability and stability in food products, especially in fermented dairy products, as well as in the host gastrointestinal tract, various microencapsulation techniques for probiotics have been developed in recent years to overcome these issues. This chapter describes the benefit of microencapsulation, various encapsulation techniques used to encapsulate probio...

    Microbial Biofilm in the industry 

    Tatsaporn Todhanakasem (2013)

    Biofilms represent negative and positive attributes in the industries. Biofilm is a functional consortium of microorganisms attached to either biotic or abiotic surfaces and embedded under the extracellular polymeric substances (EPS). Spoilage and pathogenic microorganisms can develop biofilms on food industrial surfaces that can lead to food spoilage and disease transmission when the inappropriate clean up and control have been applied in the food industies. However, single and mixed species of microbial biofilms also represent tremendous adv...

    Microencapsulation of Probiotics in Hydrocolloid Gel Matrices: A Review 

    Wunwisa Krasaekoopt (2013)

    The use of hydrocolloid gel matrices to encapsulate probiotics is of interest due to their gentle and simplicity of gel formation as well as mild condition used. This technique enhances the viability of entrapped cells during the product shelf life at least above therapeutic minimum level as well as in the gastrointestinal tract to ensure the health benefits of consumers. This review describes the advantages of microencapsulation, hydrocolloid gel matrices such as alginate, carrageenan and whey protein, microencapsulation processes, special...

    Interfacial and emulsifying properties of sucrose ester in coconut milk emulsions in comparison with Tween 

    Suwimon Ariyaprakai; Tanachote Limpachoti; Pasawadee Pradipasena (2013)

    In this study, sucrose esters were presented as a promising alternative to petrochemically synthesized Tweens for application in coconut milk emulsions. The interfacial and emulsifier properties of sucrose ester (SE), mainly sucrose monostearate, had been investigated in comparison with Tween 60 (TW), an ethoxylate surfactant. The interfacial tension measurement showed that SE had a slightly better ability to lower the interfacial tension at coconut oilewater interface. These surfactants (0.25 wt%) were applied in coconut milk emulsions wit...

    Stability of Orange Oil-in-Water Emulsions Prepared by Multilayer Membranes 

    Suwimon Ariyaprakai; Qi, Wu Jai (2013)

    Due to the small molecular size of orange oil, primary orange oil–in-water emulsion can easily undergo Ostwald ripening destabilization. To improve the stability of orange oil emulsion, multilayer emul- sion was prepared using Citrem as emulsifier and gelatin as coated biopolymer. Firstly, primary emulsion containing 20 wt% orange oil and 0.4 wt% Citrem was produced. Since Citrem was an anionic emulsifier, the primary emulsion had a negative charge of ~ -57mV. Then, the primary emulsion was suspended in 0.5 wt% gelatin aqueous solution...

    Natural Antibacterial Activity of Thai Red Curry Paste in Thai Red Curry-Water Base Model(Kang-Pa) on Listeria monocytogenes 10403S 

    Patchanee Yasurin; Supawan Rattanakom (2012-09-07)

    Natural antibacterial is now a very interesting food safety trend. The investigation on the food having antibacterial activity itself, as functional food, becomes more dynamic. Salmonella sp. is a food pathogen which has been reported its outbreaks frequently in variety of foods. Thai red curry (Kang-Pa) is a Thai cultural dish and become worldwide well-known menu. The Thai curry paste, Thai red curry main ingredients, compose of seven herbs including Capsicum annuum (Red chili), Cymbopogon citrates (Lemongrass), Alpinia galangal (Gala...

    Use of Rice Hull Hydrolyzate in the Cultivation of Lactobacillus acidophilus 

    Tatsaporn T.; Nikapong Puanglamyai (2012)

    This project aims to minimize the cost of production of live L. acidophilus by replacing the expensive carbon source in the fermentation medium with the rice hull hydrolyzate and compare the growth efficiency of the microbe in the rice hull formulated medium with the rich medium (de Man Rogosa Sharpe or MRS). Rice hull was hydrolyzed with diluted H2 SO4 and HCl at various concentrations 0.25, 0.5 and 1% v/v at 120 o C for 30 minutes. The hydrolyzate was further overliming with Ca(OH) 2 and filter through the diatomaceous earth....
