      The replacement of sucrose, a main ingredient in sweetened bakery products, is a challenging task because, apart from sweetness, sugar contributes to several other product characteristics. This review discusses alternative natural and artificial sweeteners that may be used as sugar replacers.

    16. Optimising pulsed microwave-vacuum puffing for Shiitake mushroom (Lentinula edodes) caps and comparison of characteristics obtained using three puffing methods (pages 2111–2119)

      Article first published online: 20 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/ijfs.12509

      We used scanning electron microscopy (SEM) to determine how microwave puffing (MP), microwave-vacuum puffing (MVP), and pulsed microwave-vacuum puffing (PMVP) and the conditions used during puffing affected the microstructures of the puffed Shiitake mushroom caps. The mushroom caps puffed using MP, MVP and PMVP showed three distinct cellular structures. Those puffed using MVP showed closed structural fibres and fewer, nonuniform holes; those puffed using PMVP showed loose structural fibres and more, evenly distributed holes. Although the mushroom caps puffed using MP showed bigger holes than those puffed using either MVP or PMVP, the size of the holes in the mushroom caps puffed using MP was nonuniform. Hence, the caps puffed using PMVP showed better textures, sensory scores and microstructures than those puffed using either MP or MVP.

    17. Effect of pulsed electric field processing on carotenoid extractability of carrot purée (pages 2120–2127)

      Pulsed electric field processing affects the extractability of carotenoids in carrots. Enhancing electric field strengths up to 1 kV/cm at 5 Hz increased the extraction of carotenoids from carrot pomace, while increasing frequency above 10 Hz at 1 kV/cm did not improve the extractability. Increasing the electric field strength and frequency had no significant impact on the release of carotenoids into the carrot juice.

      Article first published online: 14 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/ijfs.12610

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      In this work we compared the microbiological features and the fermentative aptitude of 29 different ADY available on the Italian market. Each sample was essayed by microbiological analysis and fermentations in 3 different grape musts. Attention was focused on the presence of wine spoilage microorganisms inside ADY, and on the degradation/production of secondary metabolites having a relevant impact on the quality of wine.
