Rheological, Foam, And Physical Properties Of Low Sucrose Meringue And Angel Food Cake Formulated With Non-Nutritive Sweeteners And Polydextrose, Kevin J. O'Niones
Theses and Dissertations--Animal and Food Sciences
The object of this research was to determine if an acceptable angel food cake alternative could be produced that had reduced calories and sucrose content. This was accomplished through replacing sucrose in meringue, angel food cake batter, and baked angel food cakes with polydextrose and either sucralose, acesulfame-K, or Rebaudioside A at different replacement levels (25, 50, 75, 100%). Meringue and cake batter properties were measured using rheological techniques. Baked angel food cakes were analyzed based on height, weight loss, moisture content, color, and TPA analysis. With meringue batter, 100% sucrose replacement was unacceptable since undissolved polydextrose made analyzing and ...
