Abstract

The coating of foods is a complex process involving many variables, and obtaining repeatable results is difficult as the surface of foods varies widely because of the presence of pores, cracks and vacuoles. A simulation study using metal flakes is reported. Coating of cereal flakes with maltodextrin and/or malt dispersions containing 0-25% solids was simulated by measuring the adhesion to metal strips. The amount of coating was related to the rheological properties of the dispersion. Dispersions containing malt were shear-thinning liquids with yield stress, and obeyed the Herschel-Bulkley model (r <greater than or equal to> 0.98, P <less than or equal to> 0.01). Coating adhesion was quantified and explained as a dimensionless uptake. A system analytical model was proposed, which consisted of influencing variables (solids in the dispersion and rheological parameters) and influenced variables (adhesion characteristics) that were analysed by 2 artificial neural networks having configurations 3-28-12-4 and 4-9-9-3-3, respectively.
