Exploring the formation of surficial whey protein deposits under shear stress by rheofluidic approach

Abstract

Understanding how shear affects whey protein stability is crucial to deal with typical industrial issues occurring at the bulk solution/surface interface, such as fouling during heat treatments. However, at the state of the art, this effect remains unclear, contrary to that of temperature. This article presents a novel strategy to study the impact of shear rate and concentration on the accumulation of whey protein surficial deposits. It consists in applying a range of shear rates (0–200 s 1) at controlled temperature (65 ◦ C) on whey protein solutions (5–10 wt %) by a parallel plate rheometer equipped with a glass disc, thus allowing the off-line characterization of the deposits by microscopy. Our results highlight an unequivocal effect of increasing shear stress. At 5 wt%, it fosters the formation of primary deposits (≈ 10 μm), whereas at 10 wt% it results in the development of complex branched structures (≈ 50 μm) especially for shear rates ranging from 140 s 1 to 200 s 1. Based on the classification by size of the observed populations, we discuss possible hypotheses for the deposit growth kinetics, involving the interplay of different physico-chemical protein-surface interactions and paving the way to future further investigations.
