Food Safety and Quality: Sizing Up Particles
Particle size analysis is important in many industries. Knowledge of particle size is important in the food industry because it affects the production and handling of ingredients and the formulation, processing, and quality control of food and beverage products. Particle size affects reactivity, solubility, and flowability of ingredients and the texture, mouthfeel, and processing of products.

Top tips for avoiding particle sizing failures with your laser diffraction method By Malvern Instruments
Particle size defines the performance of a wide range of different products, including cement, paints, inks, metal powders, cosmetics, foods and drinks. Measuring relevant particle size data is therefore essential in many industries, with laser diffraction usually the technique of choice. Fast, highly automated and suitable for measurement across a broad size range, 0.01 to 3500 microns, modern laser diffraction systems have reduced particle sizing to a matter of sample loading and push button operation, providing that a suitable method is in place....

Unfolded proteins fold into thermodynamically-favorable native structures under the correct physiological conditions for gain of function (Figure 1) [1-4]. The burial of hydrophobic regions in a protein's interior, along with the exposure of hydrophilic residues to aqueous solutions stabilizes native structures and ensures solubility. Active native proteins perform their biological functions through highly regulated intermolecular interactions with their binding partners, under thermodynamic control....
