RESEARCH

 

The research covers the following topics:

  • Analysis of starch structure after an action of enzymes including determination of internal porosity using mercury porosimetry and crystalline structure, as well as structural inhomogeneities using WAXS and SAXS methods (this part of research is conducted in cooperation with partner scientific units);
  • Optimization of the parameters of hydrothermal processing of starch materials by means of physico-chemical and structural characteristics of the product (sorption properties both from the gaseous and the aqueous stage);
  • Determination of sorption isotherms of chemically diverse compounds on starch in the conditions of carrier gas moistening using inverse gas chromatography;
  • Influence of pulsatory electric field on permeability changes in membranes of different yeast types concerning an accumulation of inorganic ions in cells as well as their influence on enzyme activity;
  • Improvement of food chemical components analysis methods (development and improvement of procedures such as isolation, separation and determination of biologically active compounds: proteins, amino acids and enzymes using chromatography);
  • Assessment of some Silphium species as inulin and saponin material;
  • Examination of storage changes in hops and hop products by, among others, an estimation of antioxidation activity changes.

 

HISTORY

 

Department of Instrumental Analysis of Food was established in 1993 to complete scientific and didactic matters for the new major Food Technology and Human Nutrition at the Faculty of Agriculture. In the years 2003–2006 the unit existed under the name of Department of Food Quality Evaluation and finally it changed the name again into Department of Analysis and Evaluation of Food Quality on 18.04.2006.
