Modulation of functional properties of whey proteins by microparticulation

Dissanayake, Muditha (2011) Modulation of functional properties of whey proteins by microparticulation. PhD thesis, Victoria University.


Heat-induced destabilisation (denaturation) of whey proteins (WP) is one of the major problems limiting their application in food products. As a means of modification, and, thereby improvement of the WP functionality, microparticulation of WP using combined heat and high pressure shearing achieved by microfluidization (MFZ) has been proposed and assessed in this thesis.
