Emulsions containing small fat and protein particles are difficult to differentiate but low dose transmission electron cryogenic microscopy can visualize and distinguish between these droplets or particles. A controlled increase in electron dose caused the sample to bubble and visibly degrade at <25 e- Å-2 for fat globules and at >150 e- Å-2 for protein particles, allowing particle differentiation. This technique may be useful for the development of nanoemulsions, as well as nanostructured and 3D printed foods.
