The effect of locust bean gum, a galactomannan, with different molecular weights on the microstructure and viscoelastic properties of heat-induced whey protein gels has been studied using confocal laser scanning microscopy and small-deformation rheology. The results obtained clearly showed that differences in the molecular weight of the polysaccharide have(More)
Release of selected volatile aldehyde compounds from starch-rich matrices was studied by headspace extraction, using solid-phase microextraction, and gas chromatography. Changes in the rheological properties of the starch-based matrices, due to starch concentration, gelatinization, and interactions with emulsifiers, were studied by steady shear and dynamic(More)
Fundamental rheology, differential scanning calorimetry and infrared spectroscopy have been used to evaluate the effect of a cationic polysaccharide, chitosan, on the gelatinization, gel formation and retrogradation of maize starch samples, under acidic aqueous conditions. Moderate acidic conditions (0.1molL(-1) acetic acid) have shown a (slight) positive(More)
