Peleg model was investigated for predicting the drying behaviour and it is shown that the Peleg constants k1 and k 2 increase with temperature. k2, a material structure parameter, showed variation by addition of plasticizers, indicating that plasticizers were able to modify fundamental structure; and xylitol showed greater average k2 values than glycerol. Further, k1, a moisture diffusivity parameter, was affected by temperature and Arrhenius relationship was used for activation energy values for k1 of plasticized starch. It is shown that compared to starch and water, presence of plasticizer had many order of significance higher k1 and confirm the hypothesis that plasticizers can 'lock' in water within the new structure. Xylitol showed better stability in controlling moisture diffusivities and migration fluxes as compared to glycerol. © 2010 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.

Water stress greatly reduced seed germination (45% germination at osmotic potentials below -0.2 MPa). Germination was completely inhibited at water potentials of -0.4 to -1.0 MPa. This species is moderately tolerant to salinity, with over 50% of seeds germinating at low levels of salinity (60 mM NaCl), and moderate germination (49%) occurring at 120 mM NaCl, it can germinate well in both alkaline (pH 10-83%) and acidic (pH 4-80%) conditions. The results of this study have contributed to our understanding of the germination and emergence of green galenia, and this will assist in developing tools and strategies for the long term management of this noxious weed in Victoria and other parts of Australia.

Heat shock had a significant effect on seed germination. Germination of seeds placed at 130 C for 5 min was completely inhibited for both dry and presoaked seeds. The results of this study will help to develop protocols for managing feather fingergrass, and to thus avoid its establishment as a troublesome weed in economically important cropping regions.]]> Mon 30 Jan 2017 14:41:01 AEDT ]]> The Evolution of Dextrins During the Mashing and Fermentation of All-malt Whisky Production Mon 16 Jan 2017 22:17:33 AEDT ]]> The effects of proteins and low molecular weight surfactants on spray drying of model sugar-rich foods: Powder production and characterisation Mon 16 Jan 2017 18:24:03 AEDT ]]> The rheological properties of ketchup as a function of different hydrocolloids and temperature n, respectively. The addition of hydrocolloids increased the yield point (τ0) and apparent viscosity of the ketchup in comparison to that of the control. The Arrhenius equation was successfully used to describe the effects of temperature on the apparent viscosity of the prepared formulations. The E a value appeared in the range between 5492.6 and 21475.8 J mol−1.
