1 day virtual course

Emulsion and emulsification technology (online participation)

If you work with product/process development, improving durability and ensuring quality of emulsions then this is the course for you. The course application examples mainly focus on food emulsions such as salad dressings, chocolate spread, mayonnaise, and sauces (e.g. bearnaise). Learn about emulsifying fats in water and water in fats and identifying suitable natural and / or synthetic emulsifiers.

Online participation: 1/2 day

Danish Technological Institute now offers this easily accessible course in emulsions. These products require natural or synthetic emulsifiers to prevent phase separation and to ensure durability of the emulsified product which is of great importance, for example, for consumer perception of many products. The course reviews the theory behind an emulsion, methods for preparing and characterizing an emulsion and crucial parameters for obtaining good product quality.

Yield

  • Basic understanding of emulsions in foods
  • Knowledge of preparation and characterization of emulsions
  • Understanding of factors that affect the shelf life of emulsified foods
  • Knowledge of interpretation of results from particle size analysis, particle charge and viscosity of emulsions

Participant profile

People who carry out product/process development of emulsions. For instance, people who develop food such as salad dressings, chocolate spread, mayonnaise, and sauces (e.g. bearnaise) which are considered emulsions, where the shelf life of emulsified foods is a quality parameter.

Teacher

Bianca C. Pérez de Lucani, Senior Specialist, Ph.D. in the Center for Food Technology. Bianca Pérez has hands-on experience in emulsifying foods and characterizing emulsions.
