In order to quantify the rheological behaviour of fat dispersions such as margarine it is necessary to have parameters available that can be considered as material constants. These constants can be found when one is able to represent the rheological behaviour of these dispersions by means of a socalled constitutive equation. The purpose of this investigation was to find whether the equations proposed for polymer-like materials can be used for these fat dispersions.
