The effect of pregelatinized potato starch on the functional properties of an extruded aquafeed

Journal of Animal Production Advances 07/2012; 2(7):335-344.

ABSTRACT The most important physical properties affecting quality in aquaculture feeds are floatability, hardness, stability and sinking velocity. An evaluation was done of the effect of different concentrations (25, 50, 75 and 100 g Kg-1) of native potato starch (PSt) and pregelatinized potato starch (PPSt) on functional properties in an extruded aquafeed. Maximum bulk density values were observed in the PPSt treatments, with a high value of 1.06 g cm-3 in the 25 g Kg-1 PPSt treatment. Hardness increased from 1.63 to 5.11 N in the PPSt treatments. Sinking velocity also increased, from 5.84 to 7.47 cm s-1, while water solubility index values decreased from 12.8 to 7.9%. Use of PPSt did not affect (P > 0.05) the expansion index, the water absorption index (g Kg-1) or color (L*, a* and b*). Addition of PPSt improved aquafeed pellet hardness without affecting the expansion index, preventing pellet disintegration and lixiviation of hydrosoluble nutrients. Of the tested concentrations, the optimum PPSt level was 100 g Kg-1 in fish meal (60%) based formuls.

    ABSTRACT: Tarhana, a traditional Turkish cereal food, was extruded using a twin-screw extruder. The effect of barrel temperature (60-120 degrees C), feed rate (10-20 kg h(-1), wet basis) and screw speed (100-300 rpm) on starch gelatinization was investigated using response surface methodology at constant moisture content (43%, wet basis). A regression equation for predicting starch gelatinization was developed. Barrel temperature had the most pronounced effect on starch gelatinization at constant moisture content, followed by feed rate and screw speed. Response surface plots suggest that a high degree of starch gelatinization can be achieved when tarhana is extruded at high barrel temperatures and screw speeds but low feed rates (i.e. high residence times).

    ABSTRACT: ABSTRACTA twin-screw cooking extruder was used to restructure mechanically deboned chicken (MDC) in combination with three nonmeat binders, corn starch (CS), soy protein isolate (SPI) and wheat gluten (WG), at concentrations of 10–30%. Extrudates were evaluated by apparent tensile stress (ATS), Warner Bratzler shear stress (WBSS), proximate composition and reheat yield. SPI and WG were less effective than starch for increasing the ATS and WBSS of extruded MDC. The effects of die temperatures between 71–115°C on chemical and textural properties of extrudates containing 10% and 15% starch were investigated. The ATS and WBSS increased as a function of temperature up to 104°C. Fat content and lipid oxidation decreased as extrusion temperatures increased.
