Abstract

Pressure (300-900 MPa) so modified b-lactoglobulin that it displayed reduced emulsifying capacity and foamability compared to native b-lactoglobulin. However, the pressure-treated samples showed a greater capacity for protein-protein interactions in the adsorbed layers of interfaces as evidenced by increased surface-dilational modulus and resistance to displacement by a surfactant in foams. The observed behavior was explained by a pressure-induced structural change in b-lactoglobulin. This increased its hydrophobicity and its potential for aggregate formation which probably accounts for the reduced emulsifying capacity and foamability.
