Abstract:
BACKGROUND: In order to investigate the effect of ultrasound dielectric pretreatment on the oxidation resistance of vacuum‐fried apple chips, apple slices were pretreated at ultrasonic powers of 150, 250 and 400 W for times of 10, 20 and 30 min before vacuum frying. The quality and oxidation resistance of fried apple were evaluated by testing the dielectric properties and comparing the moisture content, oil uptake, color, acid value (AV) and peroxide value (PV) of apple chips. RESULTS: Ultrasonic treatment significantly changed the dielectric properties of apple slices. Moisture and oil contents of apple chips decreased with increasing ultrasonic power and time. During storage, the color retention of fried apple chips processed by ultrasound was improved. AV and PV values of fried apple chips processed by ultrasound were lower, which improved their antioxidant properties. CONCLUSION: The results of the present study indicated that ultrasound dielectric pretreatment improved not only the quality of vacuum‐fried apple chips but also their antioxidant properties. © 2018 Society of Chemical Industry
