After a preliminary physical characterization, the modified starch particles were used to produce olive oil-in water (o/w) emulsions whose droplet size and distribution, flow behavior, microstructure, and physical stability were evaluated. The stabilization by Pickering phenomena was observed, as well as the formation of a starch network able to entrap oil particles. Increasing the starch concentration enhanced the emulsion physical stability by improving the oil particles’ stabilization within the starch network.</p> Umer Farooq Carla Di Mattia Marco Faieta Federica Flamminii Paola Pittia Copyright (c) 2021 Umer Farooq, Carla Di Mattia, Marco Faieta, Federica Flamminii, Paola Pittia 2021-10-08 2021-10-08 33 4 1 10 10.15586/ijfs.v33i4.2090
