Increasing the Gelling Functionality of Lupin Protein Using Ultrasound Treatment
Embargo Lift Date
MetadataShow full item record
Protein concentrate from the legume seed lupin has great potential in human nutrition however it use as a food ingredient is limited by its lack of gelling properties. The use of ultrasound to increase the gelling ability of the protein was optimised using statistical modelling and associated molecular changes were identified. The resulting modified protein with strong gelling ability has great potential as a texturising ingredient in a wide range of plant-based foods.

Ion-transfer electrochemistry of rat amylin at the water–organogel microinterface array and its selective detection in a protein mixtureDe Eulate, Eva; O'Sullivan, Shane; Fletcher, Sharon; Newsholme, Philip; Arrigan, Damien (2013)The behaviour of proteins and polypeptides at electrified aqueous-organic interfaces is of benefit in label-free detection strategies. In this work, rat amylin (or islet amyloid polypeptide) was studied at the interface ...
Wang, L.; Zhang, M.; Fang, Zhongxiang; Bhandari, B. (2017)Background: The structure of myofibrillar protein (MP) can be readily altered by oxidation, leading to the unfolding of MP structure, which further promotes protein–protein interactions, and thus influences the MP gelling ...
Evaluation of protease resistance and toxicity of amyloid-like food fibrils from whey, soy, kidney bean, and egg whiteLassé, M.; Ulluwishewa, Dulantha; Healy, J.; Thompson, D.; Miller, A.; Roy, N.; Chitcholtan, K.; Gerrard, J. (2016)© 2015 Elsevier Ltd. Abstract The structural properties of amyloid fibrils combined with their highly functional surface chemistry make them an attractive new food ingredient, for example as highly effective gelling agents. ...
