We have studied the effect of a combined heat and shear treatment on the formation and rheological properties of fibrillar whey protein aggregates. The amount and length distribution of whey protein fibrils were characterized using flow-induced birefringence and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Fibril solutions were characterized macroscopically using crossed polarizers and the flow behaviour was measured with steady-shear viscosity measurements. Fibril growth was dependent on protein… CONTINUE READING
