Dairy and Food Emulsions measurement

| Sponsored by Malvern Panalytical

The particle size of the fat droplets present in dairy and other food emulsions is important in defining properties such as flavor release, mouth feel and emulsion stability. Thus, a knowledge of the particle size is critical in defining the functionality and taste of different food emulsion products. Here we show how laser diffraction can be used to measure and understand the changes in size that occur during production and storage of dairy products. This in turn can lead to a better understanding of how product formulation and performance are linked.

Principles of Triple Detection GPC/SEC

| Sponsored by Malvern Panalytical

Triple detection GPC/SEC combines measurements from multiple detectors to offer not only increased amounts of data, but also increased amounts of information, which is made available by the combination of different detectors (and unobtainable using individual detectors separately). The theory of triple detection GPC/SEC is described here.
