  1. 1. Microwave-Assisted Air-Dehydration of Fruits and Vegetables Processing Conditions and Product Quality

    Author : Tomas Funebo; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : dielectric properties; pre-treatment; dehydration; permittivity; microwave; fruits; vegetables; multimode;

    Abstract : This thesis is focused on aspects of microwave-assisted hot-air drying of fruits and vegetables. The two material coefficients, the relative permittivity (ε) and the loss factor (ε), determine the interaction of microwave energy with foods. READ MORE

  3. 3. Aroma characterisation and retention after heat treatment and drying of fruits using extraction and GC-MS analysis

    Author : Rui Ráice; Livsmedelsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Fruits; Vangueria infausta; Mangifera indica; volatile; aroma; blanching; drying; encapsulation; modelling; GC-MS.;

    Abstract : This study concerns the identification and characterisation of volatile components of fruits, and evaluation of the effect of heat treatment and drying on retention or loss of volatiles of fruits. The investigation included developing a procedure to extract volatile components from the fruit matrix, a purification step, separation, identification and quantification. READ MORE

  4. 4. In vitro accessibility of provitamin A carotenoids in vegetables and fruits - Effects of different process and preparation methods and estimation of vitamin A activity

    Author : Ellen Hedrén; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : in vitro accessibility; provitamin A carotenoids; lactic acid fermentation; food matrix; cell wall degrading enzymes; vegetables; vitamin A activity; beta-carotene; red palm oil; fruits;

    Abstract : Vitamin A deficiency is a major nutritional problem in many developing countries, caused chiefly by a diet with low retinol content. The bioefficacy of provitamin A carotenoids in plant foods is claimed to be insufficient to maintain a satisfactory vitamin A status. READ MORE

  5. 5. Content and In Vitro Accessibility of Provitamin. A Carotenoids in Some Tanzanian Vegetables and Fruits Effects of Traditional Processing and Preparation, and Influence on Vitamin A Status

    Author : Generose Ishengoma Mulokozi; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : in vitro accessibility; sunflower oil; solar cabinet drying; women; all-trans-beta-carotene; alpha-carotene; open sun-drying; vitamin A; provitamin A carotenoids; plasma; breast milk; fruits; vegetables; red palm oil; Tanzania; beta-cryptoxanthin; pregnancy; children;

    Abstract : Vitamin A deficiency is among the major nutritional problems in Tanzania as in many developing countries. It mainly affects children and pregnant and lactating women. The basic cause of this problem is related to the diet, which contains little preformed vitamin A and plant foods with a low content and bioavailability of provitamin A carotenoids. READ MORE
