Abstract Sunflower protein concentrates were evaluated as protein sources for milk blends. The nitrogen (N) solubility of sunflower concentrate (SFC) was markedly reduced due to the aqueous diffusion method used to remove the color-producing phenolic acids. Treatment of the SFC slurries with heat, mechanical agitation and emulsifiers were effective in resolubilizing more than 80% of the N. The Polytron mixer, heating to 80°C, and incorporation of Emulsifier-3I8 were particularly effective in… CONTINUE READING
