Solid-Phase Micro Extraction Method for Headspace Analysis

      Comments Off on Solid-Phase Micro Extraction Method for Headspace Analysis

A solid-phase micro extraction method was developed to analyze volatile compounds in bread crumb. Three different fibers usually used to determine volatile compounds in foodstuffs were tested, and Carboxen/Polydimethylsiloxane showed the best extraction efficiency. This method can determine about 65 compounds, although only the main compounds responsible for the crumb aroma profile were evaluated quantitatively with a relative standard deviation <20% and limits of detection were 1-18 mg/kg. All the compounds showed a good linearity in concentration ranges of interest with acceptable correlation coefficients (r > 0.99) and recoveries close to 100%. The optimized solid-phase micro extraction (SPME) method was applied to determine aromatic compounds in some precooked frozen breads marketed in Spain (baguettes and ciabattas).

Relationships Between Sensory Flavor Evaluation and Volatile and Nonvolatile Compounds in Commercial Wheat Bread Type Baguette

      Comments Off on Relationships Between Sensory Flavor Evaluation and Volatile and Nonvolatile Compounds in Commercial Wheat Bread Type Baguette

A sensorial evaluation was carried out on the flavour of wheat bread using a test of consumer acceptance for this type of product. The 5 samples evaluated corresponded to prebaked baguettes from the main brands marketed in Spain. At the same time, headspace analysis using a solid-phase micro extraction (SPME) method was used to assess the volatile components of the bread crumb as well as other components, such as salt, lactic acid, and total titratable acidity (TTA), which could affect the flavour.
