Physicochemical properties of lard-based diacylglycerols in blends with lard

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

The objective of the study was to investigate how blending of triacylglycerols and diacylglycerols affected the melting and crystallisation properties in a solid fat system. Lard-based diacylglycerols (DAGs) were blended with lard in various concentrations (0%, 1%, 5%, 10%, 20%, 50%, 60%, 70%, 80%, 90%, and 100%). The melting and crystallisation properties were investigated by the determination of dropping point (DP), solid fat content (SFC), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). In general, the effects of DAGs were found to be dependent on concentration. The DP was significantly (P
