Influence of the protein structure on the stabilization of oil/water-interfaces

Kieserling, Helena (2021)

Food products based on oil/water-emulsions, such as beverages, dairy products, or targeted delivery systems for functional food ingredients, are thermodynamically unstable systems. Over time, on a macro-level, the dispersed oil droplets in the water phase tend to flocculate, coalesce, and cream. The kinetics of these destabilization mechanisms depend on the emulsifier properties on the micro-le...
