metadata.artigo.dc.description.abstract: The effects of pectin and sucrose addition on the rheological parameters and freezing kinetic of pas- sion fruit pulp were studied. The effect of the air–blast freezing of passion fruit at -20 °C on the rheological parameters before and after freezing was evaluated. The rheological analyses were carried out using a viscometer at 25 °C, and the readings were converted into rheolog- ical measurements using the Mitschka method and fitted to the Ostwald–de Waele model. The freezing kinetics was analyzed using a controlled–temperature cold–stage instrument, which was coupled to a microscope integrat- ed with a video capture system. The concentrations of sucrose and pectin were established using a Composite Rotational Design. The pulps combined with the addi- tives exhibited a pseudoplastic behavior, and the values for the index flow (n) and consistency index (k) before and after freezing differed and were dependent on the additive concentrations. The rates of increase for the frozen areas were evaluated in a microfreezer and were significantly influenced by the additive concentrations. These concentrations were those that presented a lower index flow and a higher consistency index. The results are discussed in terms of the solubility and interaction of the pectin added to the fruit pulp with low pH, the presence of sucrose and low temperature.
