Abstract Proteins are of great interest due to their amphiphilic nature, which allows them to reduce the interfacial tension at the oil-water interface. The incorporation of proteins at the oil-water interface has allowed scientists to utilise them to form emulsions (O/W or W/O), which may be used in food formulations, drug and nutrient delivery. The systematic study of the proteins at the interface and the factors that affect their stability (i.e., conformation, pH, solvent conditions, and thermal treatment) has allowed for a broader use of these emulsions tailored for various applications. In this review, the factors affecting the stability of emulsions using food proteins will be discussed. The use of polysaccharides to complex with proteins will also be explored in relation to enhancing emulsion stability. Copyright © 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
