High-Shear Mixing: Applications in the Food Industry

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


    Abstract High-shear mixing is used widely in the food industry. This article introduces the subject, explaining why it is used, and gives examples of its applications, including emulsification, encapsulation, thickeners, and powders. A common high-shear mixing device, rotor???stator mixer, is described, and the pros and cons of their different possible arrangements are explained.
