  • This study was carried out to evaluate the effects of stevia leaf powder on castella quality. Castellas were prepared by the addition of 0, 3, 6, 9 and 12% stevia leaf powder on sugar. The weight of castellas with stevia leaf powders ranged from 126.0~128.0 g and that of the control was 130.5 g. The volume of the castellas prepared by adding stevia leaf powder was 710.3~745.0 mL and that of the control was 756.3 mL. The height, specific volume of castellas decreased with the addition of stevia leaf powder. The Hunter L and a values of crumb and crust of castellas decreased, whereas b values increased with the addition of stevia leaf powder. The hardness, cohesiveness and chewiness increased with the addition of stevia leaf powder, whereas springiness decreased. The sensory quality of the 6% stevia leaf powder castella tested by flavor, taste, moistness and chewiness was better than that of the control, and overall acceptability of the castella with the addition of 6% stevia leaf powder was the best.

Effect of Morus alba Root Bark, Ecklonia stolonifera, and Curcuma aromatica Extracts on Shelf-life and Quality of Castella (상백피, 곰피 및 강황 추출물 첨가에 의한 카스텔라의 저장성 및 품질증진 효과)

  • This study was to examine the shelf life and qualities of castellas added with mixture of Morus alba root bark (MA), Ecklonia stolonifera (ES), and Curcuma aromatica (CA) extracts (MECE). The result of total microbial cell count showed that castellas with MECE were increasing storage time, especially at the rate of MA : ES : CA=0.75:0.75:0.5, and was reduced about 3 log cycle as compared to that of control. Also castellas with MECE were shown to have the highest antioxidant effect by Rancimat method. In the color, redness of castellas diminished with increasing amounts of MECE in castellas while conversely, lightness and yellowness increased. In sensory evaluation, the castella containing MA 0.25%, ES 0.25% and CA 0.125% were preferred than the control. These results suggest that the addition of MA 0.25%, ES 0.25% and CA 0.125% in castella positively improved the preservation and development of quality.

  • Castella sponge cake was prepared by partially replacing wheat flour with Chungkukjang, a Korean fermented soybean. The physico-chemical, textural and sensory characteristics were then investigated. Specific volume and expansion ratio decreased with increasing Chungkukjang content. The addition of Chungkukjang decreased the moisture content and increased the protein content of castella. Color determination showed addition of Chungkukjang darkened the internal color of castella, probably due to browning caused by the Maillard reaction. Castella with 20 or 30% Chungkukjang had a higher textural hardness than other castellas. A sensory panel perceived that the external and internal color of castella darkened with Chungkukjang substitution. When Chungkukjang was added at or above 20%, castella had a weaker sweet flavor, a stronger roasted flavor, and less lightness and softness than other castellas as perceived by the sensory panels. Up to 30% of the wheat flour could be replaced by Chungkukjang without diminishing acceptability.
