Shear thinning

From Chefpedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Most hydrocolloids tend to get thinner as they are sheared. Large entangled hydrocolloid molecules that are aligned randomly in a solution tend to be thick and viscous. A component of stress is applied to a solution and the molecules start to move relative to each other in their own planes, causing them to grow thinner the more vigorously they are stirred.
