Groundbreaking research: For the first time in history scientists have observed the nano structure of food in 3-D. Researchers from University of Copenhagen in Denmark and The Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland found that 98 percent of the fat globules in a cream cheese-like food system are cemented together in a continuous 3D network. They have visualized the network using the same techniques that are used in computer animation. The coherent network of fat globules (approximately 25 percent of the volume) is seen in the video as the cohesive yellow structure, while the coherent structure of water fills out the area between the fat and is not highlighted by any color for clarity. The small areas of fat or water, which are not connected to the remaining fat or water structures, are red and blue respectively. The grey areas are the food ingredient microcrystalline cellulose. The network shown in the video is about 20 microns in diameter and made of fat globules of about 1 micron in size.
