Emulsifier by Mind Map: Emulsifier

1. What is it ?

1.1. A substances which reduce the surface tension at the interface of two normally immiscible phases , allowing them to mix and form an emulsion

2. How it works?

2.1. Reduce tension between two immiscible phases due to their molecular structure

2.1.1. Emulsifier orient themselves at the phase interface and lower the interfacial enerrgy

2.1.2. Monomolecular interfacial film Prevent the coalescence

2.1.3. Formation of steric

2.1.4. Formation of electrical barrier

3. Where it is used?

3.1. In a emulsion

3.1.1. Emulsion Consist of two phase that are immiscible under normal condition Dispersed phase Continuous phase Consist of two type water in oil (w/o) oil in water (o/w) On phase is dispersed in the other in the form of fine droplets The dispersed droplets medium which the droplets are dispersed

4. Structure ?

4.1. Hydophilic

4.1.1. Affinity for water Consists of Anionic cationic Amphoteric Nonionic functional group

4.2. Lipophilic

4.2.1. Affinity for oil Consists of C16 (palmatic) Longer fatty acid

5. Types

5.1. Cationic

5.1.1. Posses positive charge amine compound

5.1.2. Not used as food additive

5.1.3. Toxic

5.2. Amphoteric

5.2.1. Posses both positive and negative charges variuos lecithin

5.2.2. Act as anionic or cationic emulsifier depending on pH of system

5.3. Nonionic

5.3.1. Uncharged molecules monoglycerides polyoxyethene glycol oleates polysorbates sucrose ester diglycerides

5.3.2. Influenced by pH Salt content

5.4. Anionic

5.4.1. Posses a negative electrical charges stearoyl lactylates Diethyl tartaric esters of monoglycerides succinylated monoglycerides

5.4.2. Influenced by pH Ionic strenght

6. How to classified ?

6.1. Throug HLB

6.1.1. What is HLB ? Expresses the balance size and strength of the hydrophilic and lipophilic group in the emulsifier 3-6 HLB Good O/W emulsifier 7-9 HLB Good wetting agent Can be used for o/w or w/o 10-18 HLB Good o/w emulsifier

7. How to select?

7.1. Evaluate different combination of two or more emulsifier to determine which gives the most stable emulsion

7.1.1. Example , do not blend anionic and cationic emulsifier as these may neutralize each other

7.2. Use only approved emulsifier

7.3. Select an emulsifier after considering

7.3.1. the functional requirement of the food system

7.3.2. The method of processing

7.3.3. The form of finished product

7.4. Consult the supplier for

7.4.1. Approximate usage levels

7.4.2. methods of incorporating the emulsifier into the food

7.5. Determine HLB requirement for the foodsystem

7.5.1. Involves screening emulsifier over a range of the HLB values and several concentrations To determine approximate requirement then verify through experimentation

8. Function ?

8.1. To promote emulsion stability

8.2. Stabilize aerated system

8.3. Control agglomeration of fat globules

8.4. To modify texture, shelf life and rheological properties

8.4.1. By complexing with strach and protein components

8.5. To improve the texture of fat-based foods

8.5.1. By controlling the polymorphism of fats

9. Application ?

9.1. Emulsification

9.2. Antistaling

9.3. Texture modification

9.4. Aeration/ foaming

9.6. Solid fluidization

9.7. Crystal modification

9.8. Palatability improvement

9.9. Defoaming

9.10. Wetting

9.11. Solubilizing

10. Function in bread

10.1. Divide into two main group

10.1.1. Dough conditioner/ dough strengtheners Aid development of less tacky , extensible dough hat are processed through machinery without tearing or sticking Exerts their effect during fermentation ,mechanical handling , shaping and transports as well as proofing and the first part of baking time .

10.1.2. Crumb softener Aionic emulsifier Complex with starch which referred to as crumb softeners Interact with flour components in creating longer lasting softness in the crumb of finished goods Emulsifier-starch complex Retard crystallization or retrogradation which is responsible for staling Most effective softerners Lactylates SMG Plastic mono and diglycerides Hydrated distilledmono glycerides DATEM Typically used about 0.5-1.0% of flour weight

11. Function in ice cream

11.1. Stabilize the foam by destabilizing the product's emulsion

11.2. Displace the protein from the fat globules surface to the aqueous phase

11.2.1. Increase the liquid cream's viscosity and allows the fat globules to agglomerate

11.2.2. The increase viscosity promotes aeration while the agglomeration stabilize the air cells once air is incorporated

12. Function in Noodle and pasta

12.1. Make rigid complex with starch to protect starch granules and improve quality of starchy foods
