The use of soy flour in yellow maize-amaranth gluten-free bread production

Vilmane, L., Latvia Univ. of Agriculture et al. [jun2014]

Celiac disease is a permanent enteropathy caused by the ingestion of gluten, a protein occurring in wheat, rye, and barley. Gluten-free products often have a shorter shelf life, lower quality, and not so pronounced flavour. Therefore, it is necessary to develop new gluten-free products with higher quality and pronounced taste. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of soy flour ...

The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of freezing, thickening and storage on the physical properties of the strawberry desserts made with addition of various hydrocolloids. The strawberry cultivars ‘Polka’, ‘Honeoye’, and ‘Senga Sengana’ harvested in Latvia were used in the study. The strawberries were processed in a blender for obtaining a homogenous mass. The strawberry mass was an ...

Sensory evaluation of beer drinks

Cinkmanis, I., Latvia Univ. of Agriculture et al. [jun2014]

In brewing, the raw materials that give the beer its specific colour, taste, and aroma are hop, barley malt, yeast, and water. However, these traditional raw materials can be partially or completely replaced with other products. A possibility of replacing hops with parts of plants (oak bark or acorn, yarrow, and wormwood) rich in bitter substances was researched. During the wort boiling proces ...

Phenolic composition and sensory properties of ciders produced from Latvian apples

Riekstina-Dolge, R., Latvia Univ. of Agriculture et al. [jun2014]

Polyphenol compounds are very important components of cider – they are responsible for the colour and the bitterness and astringency balance of cider. The polyphenolic profile of apples and apple drinks is influenced by several factors: apple variety, climate, maturity, and technological processes applied. This research paper concerns the influence of apple variety on the phenolic compounds an ...

Diversity of microscopic fungi in the raw milk from Latvian organic farms

Gulbe, G., Latvia Univ. of Agriculture et al. [jun2014]

Raw milk is an ideal growth medium for microorganisms (including many fungal species), as such milk provides all necessary nutrients and conditions for their growth. The objective of the present study was to investigate the diversity of microscopic fungi in the milk obtained in Latvian organic farms depending on cow herd size and season. The study was carried out on 547 milk samples taken from ...

Highbush blueberries are a relatively new crop in Latvia raising interest in farmers who wish to diversify their commercial horticultural activities. It is considered that soil properties are one of the possible shortcomings limiting establishment of high-productive plantations in areas where soil reaction is close to neutral. The research objective was to test the main soil characteristics in ...

Bioactive compounds in Latvian beer

Dabina-Bicka, I., Latvia Univ. of Agriculture et al. [2013]

Beer is a complex mixture – over 400 different compounds have been characterized in beer. Significant health and product quality promoting benefits have been attributed to its bioactive secondary metabolites such as phenolics. Polyphenols and phenolic acids present in beer are natural antioxidants. The aim of the research was to characterize the bioactive compounds in Latvian barley beer, such ...
