Changes in functional and sensory properties of tarhana prepared by different drying methods were investigated. While tunnel-dried (TD) tarhana had significantly (P < 0.05) higher foaming capacity compared to freeze-dried (FD), home-microwave-oven-dried (HMD) and industrial-microwave-dried (IMD) samples, the FD tarhana showed the highest protein solubility All tarhana samples exhibited pseudoplastic behavior described by power-law model. The drying methods used appeared to influence water and oil absorption capacities and emulsifying activity of tarhana. Microwave-dried tarhana exhibited higher overall sensory rating and color acceptability.
