Özet

New gluten-free food product (tarhana) was produced using rice and corn flours. Chemical and sensory properties of the tarhana samples were investigated and compared with those of traditional wheat tarhana. Generally, sensory analysis results indicated that utilization of corn and rice flours in tarhana resulted in acceptable soup properties in terms of some of the sensory properties. The changes in electrophoretic properties of the proteins of the tarhana samples were also studied during the tarhana production. Sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacryamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) results showed that relative intensities of some of the protein bands in tarhana samples generally decreased during fermentation. The decrease was more obvious at the larger molecular weight region. Corn and rice tarhana seem to be promising food products for the celiac patients who have limited choice of cereal based foods.
