This study was conducted to examine the effect of oxidized cellulose that had been selectively oxidized with TEMPO(2, 2, 6, 6-tetramethyl-1-piperidine oxoammonium ion), NaBr and NaOCl substituting for 10% of the wheat flour in a yellow layer cake formula. Physicochemical and sensory characteristics of a cake containing oxidized cellulose were compared with a control cake and a cake containing non-oxidized cellulose(CNC). The cake sample with oxidized cellulose(COC) had smaller L and a values and greater b value than the control, with a greater cake volume. Results of sensory evaluation showed that grittiness of COC was about the same as that of the control, but weaker than that of CNC, and COC was more moist and less hard than the control. These observations indicated the possibility that the oxidized cellulose could be used as a dietary fiber in a cake without causing detrimental effect on textural characteristics.
