    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...

    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....

    Determination of suitable palate cleanser for spicy tom yum soup 

    Kamolnate Kitsawad (2014)

    Palate cleansers are required in sensory tests as they help improve the accuracy for sensory responses especially for foods containing strong flavour. The objective of this study is to determine a suitable palate cleanser that can be used to relief spiciness in a Thai dish, tom yum soup. The untrained judges rated the spiciness of three levels of spicy tom yum soups before and after using five palate cleanser strategies, water, bread, unsweetened milk, 10 percent sucrose and nothing. One palate cleanser strategy was used per session, thus the ...

    Production, purification and characterization of an ionic liquid tolerant cellulase from Bacillus sp. isolated from rice paddy field soil 

    Patchanee Yasurin (2015)

    Background: Lignocellulosic biomass is a renewable, abundant, and inexpensive resource for biorefining process to produce biofuel and valuable chemicals. To make the process become feasible, it requires the use of both efficient pretreatment and hydrolysis enzymes to generate fermentable sugars. Ionic liquid (IL) pretreatment has been demonstrated to be a promising method to enhance the saccharification of biomass by cellulase enzyme; however, the remaining IL in the hydrolysis buffer strongly inhibits the function of cellulase. This study ai...

    Biodegradable human serum albumin nanoparticles as contrast agents for the detection of hepatocellular carcinoma by magnetic resonance imaging 

    Waralee Watcharin (Elsevier, 2014)

    Tumor visualization by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and nanoparticle-based contrast agents may improve the imaging of solid tumors such as hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). In particular, human serum albumin (HSA) nanoparticles appear to be a suitable carrier due to their safety and feasibility of function- alization. In the present study HSA nanoparticles were conjugated with gadolinium diethylenetriamine- pentaacetic acid (Gd-DTPA) using carbodiimide chemistry. The nanoparticles had a uniform spherical shape and a diameter of 235 ± 19 nm. F...

    Waralee Watcharin (2015)

    Nanoparticle (NP)-based contrast agents that enable high resolution anatomic T1-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) offer the prospect of improving differential diagnosis of liver tumors such as hepatocellular carci- noma (HCC). In the present study, we investigated the possibility of employing novel non-toxic human serum albumin nanoparticles conjugated with Gd-DTPA and rhodamine 123 (Gd-Rho-HSA-NPs) for the detection of HCC by T1-weighted MRI. In addition, the influence of surface coating of the NPs with poloxamine 908, which al- ters th...
