This study aimed to evaluate the ability of commercial soy protein isolate (SPI) to form cold-set gels under different pHs (5-11), pre-heating temperatures (60 A degrees C, 80 A degrees C), CaCl2 (0-15 mM) and SPI (5-15%, w/v) concentrations, and also select a formulation for the investigation of the effects of incorporating locust bean gum (LBG) (0-0.3%, w/v) and solid lipid microparticles (SLM) on gels rheological and microstructural properties. Gels were evaluated in terms of visual aspect, water-holding capacity, microstructure (using confocal laser scanning microscopy and cryo-scanning electronic microscopy) and rheological properties. SPI showed higher solubilities at pHs 7 (32.0%), 9 (51.6%) and 11 (100%). Self-supported gels were obtained under several conditions at alkaline pHs. At pH 7, only systems pre-heated to 80 A degrees C with 15% (w/v) SPI and 10 or 15 mM CaCl2 gave self-supported gels. At neutral pH, samples showed relative structural instability, which was minimized with LBG incorporation. Formulations G(SPI) (pH 7, preheated to 80 A degrees C, 15% (w/v) SPI, 10 mM CaCl2) and G(MIX) (pH 7, preheated to 80 A degrees C, 15% (w/v) SPI, 0.2% (w/v) LBG, 15 mM CaCl2) were selected for emulsion-filled gels (EFG) production. Power law parameters (K', KaEuro(3)), calculated from frequency sweep results, revealed that non-filled G(MIX) (K': 472.1; KaEuro(3): 77.6) was stronger than G(SPI) (K': 170.4; KaEuro(3): 33.6). Besides, G(MIX) showed microphase separation. SLM stabilized with Tween 80-Span 80 were active fillers in EFG, altering microstructures and increasing G', G{''} and the Young's modulus (1.8 to 2.1 kPa for G(SPI) and 1.4 to 2.2 kPa for G(MIX)).
