Abstract

In the present study the effect of iodine on properties of zein films and zein precipitates obtained after hydrophobic aggregation was evaluated. Zein films were cast with and without glycerol (as plasticizer) after incorporation of iodine at different levels (2-8%, zein wt basis). Zein films were characterized by secondary structure (determined by infrared spectroscopy) and dielectric and mechanical properties. The rheological properties of zein precipitates as a function of frequency and temperature were evaluated using a dynamic rheometer. Inclusion of iodine changed the secondary structure of zein films and decreased their tensile strength as well as strain at failure. In aggregates, changes in G' (elastic modulus) and G'' (viscous modulus) during heating were affected by the presence of iodine due to the inhibition of aggregation. The water-holding capacity of precipitates precipitated in the presence of iodine was higher than that of those without iodine.
