  1. 1. Microstructure and Gelation Behaviour of High Methoxyl and Low Methoxyl Pectin Gels and their Mixtures

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Caroline Löfgren; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Kemi; Chemistry; Bioteknik; Bioengineering; Teknisk materialvetenskap; Materials science; HM pectin; LM pectin; pectin mixtures; microstructure; kinetic behaviour; rheology; gel formation; sucrose; calcium; transmission electron microscopy;

    Abstract : The objective of this thesis was to explore the functional behaviour of high methoxyl (HM), low methoxyl (LM) and mixed HM/LM pectin gels of different chemical characteristics with emphasis on microstructure and kinetic rheological behaviour. The rheological properties and the structure of pectin gel networks were investigated for pectins under different sucrose, calcium and pH conditions by the means of oscillatory measurements and transmission electron microscopy (TEM).

  2. 2. Utilization of Wild Fruit in Mozambique – Drying of Vangueria infausta (African medlar)

    University dissertation from Food Technology, Engineering and Nutrition, Lund University

    Author : Eulália Chiau; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; drying; Vangueria infausta; maltodextrin; sucrose; softener; toughness; solar-assisted pervaporation; aroma; crystallization; water activity;

    Abstract : Vangueria infausta (African medlar) is a wild fruit found in southern and central Mozambique. The ripe fruit has a leathery skin enclosing three to five seeds embedded in a soft pulp that tastes like apple. It plays an important role in the diet of the rural population and has the potential for commercial use. READ MORE

  3. 3. Epidemiological studies of dental caries in groups of Swedish children

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Christina Stecksén-Blicks; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [1986]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; dental care; fluorides; gingivitis; lactobacilli; social conditions; S. mutans; sucrose; sugar; tooth-brushing;

    Abstract : In a cross-sectional study the extent and distribution of dental caries was studied in 817 children, 4, 8 and 13 years old in three areas inSweden. The importance of dietary habits, sugar intake, social conditions, professional dental care, oral hygiene and the use of fluorides on caries prevalence was analyzed. READ MORE

  4. 4. Sucrose cleavage pathways in aspen wood

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Umut Rende; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2016]

    Abstract : Cellulose is the main component of wood and one of the most important renewable raw materials. In several tree species including Populus species, carbon for cellulose biosynthesis is derived from the disaccharide sucrose. READ MORE

  5. 5. Macromolecular interactions, Consequences on carbohydrate metabolism

    University dissertation from Cell and Organism Biology Lund University Sölvegatan 35 SE-22362 Lund

    Author : Sandra Matic; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; sucrose synthase; macromolecular interactions; macromolecular crowding; cytoskeleton; BY-2 tobacco cells; alamethicin; aqueous polymer two-phase partitioning;

    Abstract : Most cells are crowded with solutes, enzymes, nucleic acids, structural proteins and membranes. Crowding promotes macromolecular interactions and determines major properties of the cellular environment such as viscosity, diffusion and inhomogeneity. READ MORE
