Dextrin and Inulin Fatty Ester Acids Chiba Flour Milling Co. has been synthesizing the Rheopearl Series of products by reacting dextrin with acyl chlorides and have been used as an oil gelling agent since the early 1970’s in Japan. Together with its gelling properties of various hydrocarbons and esters, the Rheopearl series provides excellent stability in emulsions. Stable oil gels can be easily obtained by dissolving Rheopearl at elevated temperatures, and cooled without stirring. The gel strength varies depending upon the acyl groups on the dextrin fatty acid esters. Longer straight chain fatty acid groups and saccharide(s) chain result in harder oil gels.
