Abstract

Spin-echo small-angle neutron scattering (SESANS) yields structural information on length scales from 30 nanometres up till 20 micrometres. These length scales match nicely those of colloids, protein networks and fat droplets, which are present in many food materials. This makes SESANS an excellent probe to study food materials. An interesting feature of SESANS is the real space character of the raw data. Several examples of quantitative neutron scattering studies on food materials are shortly reviewed.
