Combination of Propylene Glycol Alginate and Lauric Acid on Water Retention and Mechanical Properties of Soy Protein Isolate-Based Films

Yi Liu; Hongyang Pan; Tougen Liao; Baokun Zhu; Zhiyu Li; Jiacan Wu; Yuandong Li; Jibao Cai; Mingfeng Wang

Higher water retention ability and a single glass transition temperature (Tg) were found in ternary co-dried blending films when propylene glycol alginate (PGA) was added by a co-drying process. A single Tg indicates the compatibility of soy protein isolate (SPI), PGA and lauric acid (La). Differential scanning calorimetry scans showed higher relative humidity (RH) and reduced Tg due to incorporation of La.
