Coming soon, the ‘Frankenfurter’–ethylcellulose in the oleogel! — 3 Comments

  1. I think this is quite a well researched article, though the perspective seems very biased. To answer your question: an organogelator, much like gelatin in Jello (a mixture of water and sugars) is a chemical or mixture which serves to solidify oil mixtures (organo- refers to oils comprised of hydrocarbons and their derivatives, including natural edible oils, and organic solvents). Stearic acid, a natural product derived from most animal fats is a natural organogelators, while ethyl cellulose is a modified or derived polymeric organogelator. While I happen to agree that the perspective on saturated fats is a bit out-dated the focus on texture is more in an effort to study complex mouthfeel properties using scientific means, as well as entice consumers.
