In this paper we present surface dilatational properties of soy globulins (beta-conglycinin, glycinin, and reduced glycinin with 10 mM of dithiothreitol (DTT)) adsorbed onto the air-water interface, as a function of adsorption time. The experiments were performed at constant temperature (20 degrees C), pH (8.0), and ionic strength (0.05 M). The surface(More)
The structural and shear characteristics of mixed monolayers formed by an adsorbed Na-caseinate film and a spread monoglyceride (monopalmitin or monoolein) on the previously adsorbed protein film have been analyzed. Measurements of the surface pressure (pi)-area (A) isotherm and surface shear viscosity (eta(s)) were obtained at 20 degrees C and at pH 7 in a(More)
The aim of this research is to quantify the competitive adsorption of a whey protein concentrate (WPC) and hydroxypropyl-methyl-cellulose (HPMC so called E4M, E50LV and F4M) at the air-water interface by means of dynamic surface tensiometry and Brewster angle microscopy (BAM). These biopolymers are often used together in many food applications. The(More)
The effect of monoglycerides (monopalmitin and monoolein) on the structural, topographical, and dilatational characteristics of betacasein adsorbed film at the air-water interface has been analyzed by means of surface pressure (pi)-area (A) isotherms, Brewster angle microscopy (BAM), and surface dilatational rheology. The static and dynamic characteristics(More)
Surface shear viscosity of food emulsifiers may contribute appreciably to the long-term stability of food dispersions (emulsions and foams). In this work we have analyzed the structural, topographical, and shear characteristics of a whey protein isolate (WPI) and monoglyceride (monopalmitin and monoolein) mixed films spread on the air-water interface at pH(More)
Heat-induced interfacial aggregation of a whey protein isolate (WPI) with a high content of beta-lactoglobulin (>92%), previously adsorbed at the oil-water interface, was studied by means of interfacial dynamic characteristics performed in an automatic drop tensiometer. Protein concentration in aqueous bulk phase ranging between 1x10(-1) and 1x10(-5) %(More)
Heat-induced interfacial aggregation of a whey protein isolate (WPI), previously adsorbed at the oil-water interface, was studied by interfacial dynamic characteristics coupled with microscopic observation and image analysis of the drop after heat treatment. The experiments were carried out at temperatures ranging from 20 to 80 degrees C with different(More)
The manufacture of food dispersions (emulsions and foams) with specific quality attributes depends on the selection of the most appropriate raw materials and processing conditions. These dispersions being thermodynamically unstable require the use of emulsifiers (proteins, lipids, phospholipids, surfactants etc.). Emulsifiers typically coexist in the(More)
In this work we have used different and complementary interfacial techniques (surface film balance, Brewster angle microscopy, and interfacial dilatational rheology) to analyze the static (structure, morphology, reflectivity, miscibility, and interactions) and dynamic characteristics (surface dilatational properties) of beta-casein and monoglyceride(More)
Proteins and polysaccharides are widely used in food formulation. While most of the proteins are surface active, only few polysaccharides can adsorb at the air-water interface; this is the case of propylene glycol alginates (PGA). It is known that casein glycomacropeptide (CMP), a bioactive polypeptide derived from κ-casein by the action of chymosin,(More)
