The mechanical, hydrophobic and thermal properties of cast films of vicilin-rich protein isolates from three Phaseolus legumes were investigated and compared to that of soy protein isolate (SPI). The influence of heat curing at 85 °C on the properties of these films was characterized. The films of vicilin-rich protein isolates exhibited much less mechanical strength (TS) and elongation at break (EB) and similar film surface hydrophobicity, as compared with those of the SPI film. The heating… CONTINUE READING
