M.J. Spotti et al. – Does dextran molecular weight affect the mechanical properties of whey protein/dextran conjugate gels? – Food Hydrocolloids 32 (2013) 204-210

Proteins play a very important role in stability, functionality and texture of food systems through their functional properties Jiménez-Castaño, Villamiel, & Lopez-Fandino, 2007). This functionality is governed by physicochemical and structural properties of proteins like intrinsic amphiphilic character, surface activity, molecular weight, net charge, solubility, conformational flexibility and extrinsic conditions…
