Edible Oleogels: Structure and Health Implications
In an effort to provide alternatives to trans and saturated fats, scientists have been busy modifying the physical properties of oils to resemble those of fats. In this fashion, many food products requiring a specific texture and rheology can be made with these novel oil-based materials without causing significant changes to final product quality. The major approach to form these materials is to incorporate specific molecules (polymers, amphiphiles, waxes) into the oil components that will alter the physical properties of the oil so that its fluidity will decrease and the rheological properties will be similar to those of fats. These new oilbased materials are referred to as oil gels, or "oleogels," and this emerging technology is the focus of many scientific investigations geared toward helping decrease the incidence of obesity and cardiovascular disease.

About Alejandro G. Marangoni
Alejandro Marangoni is a professor and Canada Research Chair in Food and Soft Materials Science at the University of Guelph. His work concentrates on the physical properties of foods, particularly fat crystallization and structure. He has published over 200 refereed research articles and six books. He is the recipient of many awards including a 1999 Premier's Research Excellence Award, the first Young Scientist Award from the AOCS (2000), a Canada Research Chair (2001, renewed in 2006), two Distinguished Researcher Awards from the Ontario Innovation Trust (2002), a Career Award from the Canadian Foundation for Innovation (2002), an E.W.R. Steacie Memorial Fellowship (2002)-given to the top six Canadian scientists from all disciplines-and the T.L. Mounts Award from AOCS in 2004. Dr. Marangoni is a past chair of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada's Plant Biology and Food Science Grant Selection Committee, member of NSERC's E.W.R. Steacie Memorial Fellowship selection committee, Editor-in-Chief of Food Research International (Elsevier), an Associate Editor of the JAOCS (Springer), and an editorial board member of Food and Function (RSC), Food Digestion (Springer) and CyTA-The Journal of Food (Taylor and Francis). Dr. Marangoni has co-founded three high-technology companies and is the co-recipient of the 2008 Guelph Partners of Innovation "Innovator of the Year" award for his discovery of a platform technology for the manufacture of structured oil-in-water emulsions. Dr. Marangoni has recently been appointed a Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Food, Health, and Aging. (FROM EDIBLE OLEOGELS) Nissim Garti obtained his B.Sc., M.Sc., and Ph.D. from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He has been a full professor since 1990 and holds the Ratner Chair of Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry and Applied Chemistry. He also serves as a Board Member Elect and Director of the Hebrew University Governors Executive Board since January 2011. Nissim is the recipient of numerous prestigious awards including the Rockefeller Award, the Israel President Award for one of the most innovative inventions in 60 years of the existence of the country, Life-Time Achievement Award of the Food Society, the Chang Award of the AOCS, the Corporate Research Achievement Award of the AOCS for 2011, and many others. His achievements include publishing over 380 original (research) refereed papers in peer reviewed journals; writing over 60 review chapters in scientific books; granted over 80 patents; edited 7 books and additional 4 in preparation; invited to over 180 conferences as keynote, session, and invited speaker; and educated and tutored 38 Ph.D. students and 84 M.Sc. students. Nissim is a member of the board of directors of several academic institutions in Israel and consults for several Israeli and global industries. Nissim's expertise, competence, and active research is in colloid chemistry, emulsion technology, dispersed systems, delivery new vehicles, microemulsions and lyotropic liquid crystals, crystallization phenomena, interfacial reactions and reactivity, amphiphilic proteins, hydrocolloids, dendrimers, nutraceuticals, and food science.
