The viscoelastic properties and stability of concentrated corn oil-in-water emulsions stabilised with 2.0% water soluble meat proteins (WSMP) were examined before, and after, partial replacement of WSMP by a blend of mono- and di-glycerides at pH 2.5-7.5. Using protein/glycerides mixtures improvements were observed, the level depending on protein/glycerides ratio, mono-di-glyceride ratio within the glycerides components, and pH. It is suggested that protein and glycerides associate to form a complex at the critical values of the three variables at which maximum improvement was observed.
