Q1./ Discuss how the primary, secondary and tertiary structure of a protein will influence the way in which it behaves when it adsorbs at an oil droplet surface in a food emulsion. Q.2/Describe the molecular characteristics of globular proteins that allo
Both α-lactalbumin and ß-lactoglobulin bind on the surface of casein micelles. During emulsification, milk proteins can rapidly adsorb on the surface of newly formed oil droplets.
