Title: Einkorn (Triticum monococcum L.) and nectarine flour mixture - antioxidant activity, microbiological and sorption characteristics
Keywords: einkorn, Triticum monococcum L., nectarines, powder, antioxi

Abstract: The current paper presents the initial scientific research on a new enriched flour mixture with nectarine powder, comprising physicochemical parameters, antioxidant capacity, microbiological load, and sorption characteristics data. A mixture of 70% Einkorn flour and 30% fruit powder of Bulgarian origin as a functional food supplement was blended. The presence of bioactive components was proved by the in vitro analysis of antioxidant activity through DPPH, ABTS, FRAP, and CUPRAC methods. The microbiological indicators, the total count of mesophilic aerobic and facultative anaerobic microorganisms, yeasts and molds, Escherichia coli, Salmonella spp., coagulase-positive staphylococci and coliforms, were within the permissible norms and no presence of pathogenic microorganisms, were detected in the flour mixture. Adsorption and desorption processes were studied at 10, 25 and 40°C and aw = 0.112-0.868 following static gravimetric methods. The obtained S-shaped equilibrium sorption isotherm
