Formation of β-lactoglobulin nanofibrils by microwave heating gives a peptide composition different from conventional heating.


A novel procedure involving microwave heating (MH) at 80 °C can be used to induce self-assembly of β-lactoglobulin (β-lg) into amyloid-like nanofibrils at low pH. We examined the self-assembly induced by MH, and evaluated structural and compositional differences between MH fibrils and those formed by conventional heating (CH). MH significantly accelerated… (More)
