(Food Additives and Contaminants Part A-chemistry Analysis Control Exposure & Risk Assessment, 2009-01-01) [Artigo]
An antifungal assay with cell-free culture supernatant of Pichia ohmeri 158 and Candida guilliermondii P3 was tested against Penicillium expansum strain #2 at 25C by measuring hyphal length and percentage conidia germination. ...
Drying of persimmon: Mathematical model for diffusivity as a simultaneous function of moisture content and shrinkage
(Proceedings of the Second Inter-american Drying Conference, 2001-01-01) [Trabalho apresentado em evento]
Fresh persimmon has a high moisture content (about 85% wet basis) making it highly perishable and requiring adequate drying conditions to obtain an acceptable dehydrated product. Drying kinetics of persimmon cv. Rama Forte ...
Rheology and fluid dynamics properties of sugarcane juice
(Biochemical Engineering Journal, 2011-02-15) [Artigo]
The sugarcane juice is a relatively low-cost agricultural resource, abundant in South Asia, Central America and Brazil, with vast applications in producing ethanol biofuel. In that way, a good knowledge of the rheological ...
Effect of milk treatment on acidification, physicochemical characteristics, and probiotic cell counts in low fat yogurt
(Milchwissenschaft, 2007-01-30) [Artigo]
The effect of milk treatment (heat, high hydrostatic pressure - HHP, or combined heat and HHP) on acidification, physicochemical characteristics, and probiotic cell counts in low fat yogurt was studied. All samples were ...
Heat transfer in a packed sugar cane bagasse bed
(CHISA 2008 - 18th International Congress of Chemical and Process Engineering, 2008-12-01) [Trabalho apresentado em evento]
Heat transfer in a packed bed of sugar cane bagasse, which is a potential biofuel used in cars and industries, percolated with air flow was studied. The fibers were washed, sieved, oven dried, and afterwards moisture content ...
