Food Microstructure

The microstrueture (location, distribution, size, morphology, porosity, etc) of a food material is closely correlated to its texture (1), component functionality (2), and nutritional quality (3).

This review will focus mainly on the various techniques available for such characterization with special emphasis on their applications and limitations.

A basic approach for visualizing the microstructure of a sample is to obtain a magnified view of its components through microscopic techniques.
