Despite the large using of milk proteins by the food industry, the mechanism of their action for emulsion stabilisation remains partially understood. Among the factors which are presumed to play a role in the mechanism, we selected to study both of them: 1) the affinity of milk proteins for lipids: neither its real importance, nor the nature of the lipids — proteins interactions are known. 2) the flexibility of protein which seems to have an essential function in the etablishment of the interactions with small solutes or polymers.
