Abstract

Food-grade biomaterials, like -lactoglobulin, bovine serum albumin, and ovalbumin, can assemble into fibrils. Using the irreversible fibril formation for -lactoglobulin, gels can be formed even at protein concentrations of 0.07%. These fibrillar mesostructures form new structuring materials for food and pharmaceutical applications.
