Plateform RMB

Rheology and structure of biological materials facility

The Rheology and structure of biological materials (RMB) technical facility comprises over 30 appliances (rheometers, calorimeters, granulometers, water sorption measurement appliances, etc.) to characterise the rheological, mechanical, and structural properties of food and pharmaceutical products.

The facility participates in a wide variety of research topics including:

- Investigation of the thermal properties of encapsulation matrices (starch or protein matrices)

- Determination of the thermal and textural properties of films

- Characterization of the influence of production and storage conditions on milk protein denaturation

- Determination of the viscoelastic properties of milk or leguminous gels.
