What Is Emulsification

By SkinnyandMini | May 20, 2009

Emulsification is the process by which generally unmixable liquids, such as oil and water, are forced into a uniform distribution. Acidic liquids like lemon juice help the process by changing the pH of the mixture. The liquids are combined very slowly, usually drop by drop, while beating vigorously, which suspends drops of liquid throughout each other. Bearnaise, hollandaise, vinaigrette, and mayonnaise are examples of emulsified foods.
