ABSTRACT Soy milk is a highly stable emulsion, the stability being mainly due to the presence of oleosomes or oil bodies, spherical structures filled with triacylglycerides (TAGs) and surrounded by a monolayer of phospholipids and proteins called oleosins. For oleosomes purified from raw soymilk, surface pressure investigations and Brewster angle microscopy have been performed to unveil their adsorption, rupture and structural changes over time at different subphase conditions (pH, ionic strength). Such investigations are important for (industrial) food applications of oleosomes, but are also useful for the understanding of the general behavior of proteins and phospholipids at interfaces. In addition a better comprehension of the highly stable oleosomes can lead to advancements in liposome manufacturing, e.g., for storage and transport applications. Although oleosomes have their origin in food systems, their unique stability and physical behavior show transferable characteristics which lead to a much better understanding of the description of any kind of emulsion. This study is one of the first steps towards the comparison of natural emulsification concepts based on different physical structures: e.g., the animals' low density lipoproteins, where apolipoproteins with phospholipids are located only at the interface and plant oleosomes with its oleosins, which are embedded in a phospholipid monolayer and reach deep inside the oil phase.
