Macerating Properties of Fruits and Vegetables for Suspensions Containing Single Cells

단세포 함유 반응물 제조를 위한 과일과 채소류의 가공 특성

  • Published : 2004.02.28


Cell-separating enzyme (Sumyzyme MC) was used to investigate enzymatic maceration of strawberry, sweet persimmon, kiwi, onion, garlic, and cucumber, Maceration rate, volume, brix, color, particle size distribution, and viscosity were determined, and microscopic observation made on suspensions containing single cells. Sweet persimmon and strawberry showed over 90% meceration rates, and kiwi showed 80%. Color, storage test, and sensory evaluations of single-cell suspensions and their filtrates were performed before and after sterilization. Total dietary fiber contents of raw material and single-cell suspension of garlic were 30.77 and 18.55%, respectively, Results indicate fruit and vegetable suspensions produced through enzymatic disintegration using cell-separating enzyme can be utilized as basic materials in the manufacture of single-cell foods.
