Gabrielová, Kristýna ; Vítová, Eva (referee) ; Diviš, Pavel (advisor)
This bachelor thesis deals with the effect of roasting on the content of carbohydrates and aromatic compounds in coffee. It also studies changes in coffee acidity based on different level of roasting. In the practical part there was measured pH, it was conducted setting of glucose, fructose and sucrose content by liquid chromatography, analysis of aromatic compounds using gas chromatography and also sensoric analysis of 17 types of coffee. Each one was roasted using two different temperatures (210 °C and 240 °C). Based on the statistical processing of basic chemical analysis and sensory analysis, significant differences were found between determined parametres of coffee samples roasted at 210 ° C and 240 ° C. Processing of results of sensory and chemical analysis of coffee samples did not manage to differentiate coffee samples from each other based on their geographic origin. At a lower level of coffee roasting there was found weak, but statistically significant correlation between the results of the sensory analysis and the content of aromatic compounds, while for the higher degree of coffee roasting no correlation was found.

Senzorické hodnocení vybraných druhů ovocných vín
PRÁŠEK, Jiří
The aim of this thesis was to prepare at least three samples of fruit wines and make a sensory evaluation of them within a group of evaluators. The results of the sensory evaluation of fruit wines bought in the market were added. The sensory analysis of the fruit wine samples was done at the Faculty of Agriculture at the University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice. Evaluators (n= 61; 21 to 55 years old) made a perception (ranking and sensory profile) of the fruit wine samples. The best self-made fruit wine was rosehip wine (fruit of Rosa canina). The worst self-made fruit wine was blackthorn wine (fruit of Prunus spinosa L.). The assessors did not register any big differences during the analysis of the commercially made fruit wines, therefore the variability in evaluation depended on the individual preferences. The complete impression of evaluated fruit wines mainly consisted of the results from analysis of the aroma and the taste of those samples.

URBAN, Martin
The aim of this diploma thesis was a sensory and nutritional evaluation of vegetable drinks. The analysis focused on rice and oat drink. Part of the population has health problems with milk consumption. Some substitutes can be beverages from legumes, cereals, nuts, etc. Oat and rice drinks does not contain cholesterol, are a source of minerals and vitamins. Rice and oat drink does not contain lactose or milk proteins. The downside is the insufficient amount of protein and the fact that, unlike milk protein, the protein of cereals is poor, deficient. Rice drink does not contain gluten. The sensory analysis aimed to compare individual drinks and determine their differences between samples, to determine the intensity of certain properties and to rank the samples from best to worst. The sensory analysis confirmed the differences between manufacturers. In the case of rice beverages, the evaluators concluded that they perceived the difference between the product of Alpro and Alnatura, with the Alnatura drink being considered the most acceptable. The amount of fat in rice beverages was low (1-1.1 g fat per 100 ml). Drinks also contain little protein (0.1-0.3 g / 100 ml). Oat beverages differed in particular with Alnatura and Delhaize - Bio. The evaluators preferred Delhaize Drink Company - Bio the most. The nutritional composition of the fat-like products is similar to rice beverages (1-1.5 g fat per 100 ml). The amount of protein was slightly higher (0.6-1 g protein per 100 ml). From a nutritional point of view, there is a noticeable difference between cow's milk and oat and rice beverages. The rice and oat drinks that were preferred contained the most sugar and the brewing flavor was the least noticeable.

Burdějová, Lenka ; Kráčmar, Stanislav (referee) ; Šilhár, Stanislav (referee) ; Polovka, Martin (advisor)
Presented thesis deals with the complex characterization of extracts from medical plants using spectroscopic and chromatographic techniques, with emphasis on the influence of solvent, post-harvest treatment of the sample, location and year of production on selected parameters. Part of the work is devoted to application of selected extracts from medical plants in suitable form into beverages. The thesis is divided into two parts. At the first part of the work combination of electron paramagnetic resonance, ultraviolet visible spectroscopy, liquid chromatography and inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry was applied for characterization of aqueous, ethanol and dimethylsulfoxide extracts from 10 selected medical plants, which were collected from two different locations during two years (2015, 2016) and post-harvestly treated by two ways (freezing, drying). In total, 39 parameters were determinated: namely total phenolic compounds content, total flavonoids content, 14 specific phenolic compounds, colour characteristics in the CIE L*a*b* system (L *, a*, b *, C*, h°, BI), radical-quenching activity using the cation radical of the 2,2'-azino-bis- (3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid), antioxidant/pro-oxidant activity using the spin trapping technique in the presence of 5,5-dimethyl-1-pyrrolin-N-oxide (DMPO)/potassium peroxodisulphate and content of 15 minerals (Al, As, Ca, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, K, Mg, Mn, Na, P, Pb, Zn). The results confirmed that the studied parameters of medical plants are influenced by the extraction system, post-harvest treatment of samples, year of production, origin of samples (locality) and species composition. It has been shown that the type of extraction solvent significantly affects the composition of the extracts. On the basis of these analyzes, for food application – the isolation of the main functional components (phenolic compounds, flavonoids) –50% ethanol, post harvest treatment by drying and samples of Mentha piperita, Melissa officinalis, Hypericum perforatum and Salvia officinalis were selected. The second part of the thesis was focused on the application of selected extracts of medical plants to beverages (syrups). The above mentioned plants, 25% ethanol instead of 50% ethanol (due to the limitation of the ethanol content in final raw material), were selected for the application. At first, extraction of medical plants was optimized. Suitable ratio of material and solvent (1:10), extraction time (8 h) and herb absorbency (50–62 %) were determined. The prepared extract after filtration was applied to the syrup concentrate in different ratios to produce one-species syrups and further sensorially tested to select the suitable recipe, the best flavour and basis for the production of two-species syrups. The mint syrup was the most tasty and generally the most acceptable one-species syrup, and sage syrup was selected as the basis for two-species syrups. Further, the most appropriate recipes of the two-species syrups were chosen, the most sensorially acceptable one was selected and further tested if it would be appropriate to colour them. Preferentially, it has been found that it is not necessary to colour two-species syrups. On the basis of the sensory analysis, it has been found that peppermint and sage-peppermint syrups were the most tasty and acceptable syrups, which could be, after further testing, produced industrially to enrich the food market.

WEISSOVÁ, Denisa
The subject of this thesis was to evaluate the use of sweeteners in a selected group of soft drinks from the viewpoint of the sensory quality. Using selected methods of sensory analysis were evaluated four samples of soft drinks with lemon flavor. The first sample A - Sprite contained aspartame, acesulfame K and fructose - glucose syrup. The second sample B - Slice consisted of the aspartame and acesulfame Ksweeteners. Sample C - Lemon contained only sugar and last sample D - Santerre, was composed of aspartame, acesulfame K and sodium saccharin. The evaluators were divided into two groups according to age. The first group of respondents was composed of students from the University of South Bohemia in the age of 18-27 years. The second group was composed of randomly selected people aged 40+. The aim of the thesis was to determine whether there is a disparity between the groups. Top rated sample became the sample A - Sprite. Differences occurred in sample B and C. Sample B which contains aspartame and acesulfame K was preferably evaluated bythe first group, whereas the second group consisting of older respondents evaluated preferably sample C Lemon. Lemon sample contains only sugar and its taste is therefore less noticeable or even perceived as without flavour, based on the evaluated results.The lowest rated sample was unambiguously sample D, which contains sweetener aspartame, acesulfame K and sodium saccharin. Part of this work was a questionnaire for consumers.Its main aim was to find out what mostly influences respondents when buying soft drinks, what attitude artificial sweeteners they have and if they find the composition of soft drinks determinative.
