Rheological and microstructural study of concentrated sunflower oil in water emulsions stabilized by food proteins
Keywords:Droplet Size Distribution, Emulsion, Linear Viscoelasticity, Protein
Droplet Size Distribution (DSD) and linear viscoelastic properties of concentrated o/w emulsions stabilized by different proteins (crayfish, gluten and soybean) have been studied. A typical behaviour of highly concentrated emulsions with a high degree of flocculation has been found. An increase in energy input for the emulsification process or in emulsifier concentration leads to an increase in both viscoelastic moduli (G’, G’’) as well as to a decrease in droplet size. Thus, an enhancement of the entanglement network produced by association of protein molecules that are surrounding oil droplets or are present in the continuous phase takes place, leading to a significant improvement of emulsion stability.
