Description The project aims at characterizing the thermodynamic and kinetics of crystallization of mixtures of triglycerides of different origins (e.g., shea butter, sunflower oil, palm oil and mid fraction). A correct and detailed understanding of the mechanism of crystallization is essential for the formulation of new confectionary products that are more sustainable and that have better nutritional properties.
