|Title:||Production Of Prebiotic Functional Shrimp Nuggets Using ß-glucan And Reduction Of Oil Absorption By Carboxymethyl Cellulose: Impacts On Sensory And Physical Properties|
|Abstract:||In recent years consumer demand for healthier foods such as seafood products possessing appropriate functional properties and low calories has been increased. In this study, shrimp nuggets having functional properties were manufactured by incorporating commercially available ß-glucan and carboxy methyl cellulose (CMC), and were evaluated for sensory, chemical and physical properties. Texture profile analysis (TPA) of par-fried and full fried products showed that shrimp nuggets containing both ß-glucan and carboxy methyl cellulose (BG+CMC formulation) had significantly higher springiness, chewiness and cohesiveness than control (p<0.05) and lower hardness and shear force values. Addition of 1% CMC to the batter formulation with 3% ß-glucan in core reduced 27% of oil absorption during frying step. Differences in sensory evaluation values between nuggets containing CMC and control were not significant at any particular factors except for the juiciness. Application of BG as a prebiotic soluble fiber and CMC reduces oil uptake during frying, and provides a functional calorie- reduced sea food product with desirable organoleptic properties. © 2014 Haghshenas M, et al.|
