Mono- and disaccharides: Selected physicochemical and functional aspects

Forskningsoutput: Kapitel i bok/rapport/konferenshandlingKapitelVetenskapligPeer review


Mono-and disaccharides may exist in amorphous form with a random molecular order in some food products, as reviewed by White and Cakebread [3] and Roos [4]. Such products include dehydrated food products (such as milk and whey powders that are obtained via spray-drying as well as freeze-dried fruit and berries) and hard sugar candies that have been produced by rapid cooling. Also, other food processes, such as freezing and extrusion cooking, can produce amorphous (noncrystalline), often solid structures, such as a freeze-concentrated, unfrozen phase of frozen products (e.g., in ice cream) and crisp and brittle snack products, respectively. Amorphous sugar and a sugarcontaining matrix may encapsulate various compounds, such as aroma compounds and bioactive substances, as reviewed by Karel [5]. Encapsulation may increase the stability of these compounds by preventing oxidation of the encapsulated compounds. © 2017 by Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
