Abstract:It was proposed that the glass transition plays a role in the development of product structure as a result of its relationship to melt viscosity. It was proposed here that the location of Tg relative to the cereal melt temperatures (DeltaT) determines the viscosity of the melts (High DeltaT equates to low melt viscosity). The viscosity of the cereal melt controls the rate and extent of expansion that occurs upon expulsion from the die. Experimental results supported the proposed mechanisms of effect of the glass transition on cornmeal snack character.
