Whipping oils into a frenzy

Samantha Ivell writes about a hot Chemical Science article for Chemistry World

Inspired by foams in everyday products such as food, researchers in the UK have developed a way to form extremely stable temperature-sensitive air-in-oil foams.

Air-in-oil foams are widely used in industry, and feature regularly in everyday life. A typical example is aerated chocolate, formed from molten cocoa butter. Not only does the light texture provide a pleasant sensation in the mouth, but introducing air into products allows companies to manufacture foods with a lower fat content for less money. Oil foaming is also responsible for the phenomenon that cuts off the pump when refuelling vehicles. Despite this familiarity with air-in-oil foams, information on the science behind them is still lacking. Read the full article in Chemistry World»

  1. All the manufacturers use chemicals in their products. These chemicals they are using must be of good quality and in purer form, to avoid side effects and chemical reactions. There are many chemical suppliers who supply chemicals. But most of them sell adulterated chemicals. ChemAtoZ is an online chemical supplier. It supplies chemicals in purest form. To buy chemicals go to http://www.chematoz.com
