Research areas

1. Aromatization of food, especially food with reduced fat, including an evaluation of the phenomena associated with the release of lipophilic and/or hydrophilic odorants from model emulsion systems and the extent of the impact of basic food ingredients, as well as the processes occurring at the oil-water interphase.
2. Effect of thickeners on the release of the selected odorants from model emulsions with varying amounts of fat using a gas chromatograph GC/MS, taking into account measurements of the kinetic and thermodynamic stability of the tested system.
