Influence of beer protein on foam stability
Benda, David ; Štursa, Václav (referee) ; Pořízka, Jaromír (advisor)
This bachelor thesis deals with the influence of beer proteins, phenolic compounds, bitterness and selected metal ions on beer foam stability. The theoretical part describes beer foam from the physical aspect, beer foam stability and its measurement and the factors that positively or negatively influences the stability and quality of the beer foam. In the theoretical part are described selected proteins that influence beer foam. In theoretical part is described the origin and technological significance of proteins. The experimental part is dedicated to the measurement of beer foam stability with the NIBEM method, the analysis of total protein content, the analysis of total phenolic content, bitternes and element analysis of beer samples. Measured data indicated correlations between protein content, phenolic compounds content, bitterness and metal ions with the beer foam stability. The results show that proteins and phenolic compounds as isolated parameters don’t essentialy affect the beer foam stability. It was found out, that bitterness as isolated parameter influences the beer foam stability the most.
Beer foam stabilization using biosurfactants
Jandrtová, Sabina ; Diviš, Pavel (referee) ; Pořízka, Jaromír (advisor)
This diploma thesis focuses on a research of the foam stability of the beer. We specifically observed the influence of ethanol and surface tension on the foam stability, and influence of ethanol and surface tension on the height of the foam. It was observed the influence of the hop acids in non-alcoholic beers. Furthermore, different biosurfactants were added into to the beer to observe better stability of the foam. The theoretical part of this work describes the foam from the physical aspect. There are described fourth key events involved in foam formation. Then it focuses on the beer foam – its structure, substances that influence its behavior and measurement of the foam stability. In this part there are described biosurfactants as well – their characteristics, qualities, distribution and applications. The experimental part is dedicated to the influence of ethanol, surface tension, the amount of iso- acids on foam stability in beer. There is observed the influence of biosurfactants of the foam stability and surface tension, which are added into to the beer. For the measurement of the foam stability was used the Rudin method. Liquid chromatography with DAD detector was used for the measurement the amount of the hop acids. The surface tension was determined by tensiometer. According to the results addition of ethanol changed the characteristics of the foam stability, but it’s not easy to find correlation between the increasing amount of ethanol and its stability. It was found out, that there is connection between the amount of ethanol and surface tension. On the other hand, there is not much connection between the surface tension and foam height. Within the framework of addition of biosurfactants was observed, that these foaming agents interacted the surface tension of the beer (lowering), however these agents accelerated the fall of the beer foam.
