Relationship between sugar content, total acidity, and crystal by-products in the making of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena

AbstractTraditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena (TBVM) is a product of Modena district (Emilia Romagna, Italy), well known, and largely appreciated worldwide. During the ageing of homemade TBVM, the concentration of solute produces an increase in density (mainly owing to the evaporation of water), the balance between sweet and acidic tastes, and the formation of dark brown colour.

Since about 20 years, undesirable effects of crystallization of homemade TBVM are becoming common during the period of

Microencapsulation of grape (Vitis labrusca var. Bordo) skin phenolic extract using gum Arabic, polydextrose, and partially hydrolyzed guar gum as encapsulating agents

Bordo grape skin extract was microencapsulated by spray-drying and freeze-drying, using gum arabic (GA), partially hydrolyzed guar gum (PHGG), and polydextrose (PD) as encapsulating agents. Total phenolics and total monomeric anthocyanin, antioxidant activity, color, moisture, water activity (aw), solubility, hygroscopicity, glass transition temperature (Tg), particle size, and microstructure of the powders were evaluated. The retention of phenolics and anthocyanins ranged from 81.4% to 95.3%, and 80.8% to 99.6%, respectively, while the retention of antioxidant activity ranged from 45.4% to 83.7%. Treatments subjected to spray-drying had lower moisture, aw, and particle
