Abstract

Aggregation of β-Lactoglobulin (β-Lg) solutions, with and without sodium polypectate (SPP), was investigated at pH 6.5 and 3.5 by turbidity measurements and gel permeation chromatography during heating at 1°C/min. The ratio of β-Lg:SPP was maintained at 10:1. At pH 6.5, the transition temperature of β-Lg aggregation decreased linearly with the logarithm of β-Lg concentration. Irrespective of β-Lg concentration, SPP did not affect the rate of β-Lg aggregation during heating at pH 6.5. However, SPP influenced the formation of high-molecular-weight (HMW) β-Lg aggregates during heating at pH 6.5 was related to bulk macromolecular concentration. No thermal aggregation transitions were detected for β-Lg solutions at pH 3.5. SPP interacted with β-Lg at pH 3.5 to form a complex that precipitated on heating.
