|Abstract:||This study aimed at evaluating the effect of three independent variables: biopolymer concentration (egg white proteins and pectin) (2.0–4.0%, w/w); protein:pectin ratio (15:1–55:1); and temperature (70–80 °C), at pH 3.0, using a central composite design on the foaming properties (overrun, drainage and bubble growth rate). Foams produced with protein:pectin ratio 15:1 showed the lowest bubble growth rate and the greatest drainage, whereas protein:pectin ratio 55:1 presented the lowest drainage. Complexes obtained with protein:pectin ratio 15:1 were close to electroneutrality and showed larger size (95.91 ± 8.19 μm) than those obtained with protein:pectin ratio 55:1 (45.92 ± 3.47 μm) not electrically neutral. Larger particles seemed to build an interfacial viscoelastic network at the air–water interface with reduced gas permeability, leading to greater stability concerning the disproportionation. Soluble complexes of smaller sizes increased viscosity leading to a low drainage of liquid and inhibiting the bubbles coalescence|
