Effect Of Cis-Trans Isomers And Related Physical Properties Of Monounsaturated Lipids On Shortening Power, Aneta Joyce Ostrander Aug 1968

Effect Of Cis-Trans Isomers And Related Physical Properties Of Monounsaturated Lipids On Shortening Power, Aneta Joyce Ostrander

Doctoral Dissertations

The effect of cis-trans isomers on the shortening power of lipids was investigated. Lipid samples studied included: a commercial vegetable oil (control), oleic acid, elaidinized triolein, two samples in which elaidinized oleic acid was substituted at different levels for oleic acid, and two samples in which elaidinized triolein was substituted at different levels for triolein. Breaking strengths of plain pastry wafers were used for estimating the shortening power. Melting point, surface tension, interfacial tension and viscosity measurements were made on the lipid samples. Lipid composition analyses included gas-liquid and thin-layer chromatography.

Except at the 100 percent level of substitution, wafers ...
