Technical Abstract: An extremely stable emulsion of oil, water, and carbohydrate can be produced by co-cooking a pre-mixture of these materials in an excess steam jet-cooker. The resulting composite is a lubricous free-flowing liquid that sets up to a soft gel on cooling or produces a free-flowing dry powder upon drum drying. Both the liquid gel and the dry powder contain micro- encapsulated droplets of oil (1-10 mum) and are very effective replacement for fats in dairy, baking, and meat applications, as adhesives for particle board, plywood, and paper bags and as a water based delivery system for industrial coatings, in seed coatings laced with pesticides, herbicides, and growth regulators, and in cosmetics and drug delivery systems.
