This article reviews rheological properties of milk, concentrated milk, cream, butter, ice cream, and yogurt, as well as the structure and some physicochemical properties of milk components. A brief description of basic rheological concepts related to liquids, solids, and viscoelasticity is presented, including those rheological models commonly used to(More)
The introduction of biocompatible coatings onto nanoparticle surfaces can be synthetically challenging. In this work, calcium phosphate (brushite, CaHPO4⋅2H2O), iron oxide (hematite, α-Fe2O3), zinc oxide (ZnO), and CaHPO4@ZnO and α-Fe2O3@ZnO nanoparticles were synthesized and treated with the biocompatible, biodegradable, polysaccharide inulin(More)
New strategies for formulating healthy, balanced food with enhanced expected satiating capacity are a hot topic. The present work tests the hypothesis that adding complexity to food will result in higher expectations of satiating capacity. Different kinds of "visible" particles (wheat bran, ground coconut, flaxseeds and oat meal) were added to cheese pies(More)
