Resumo: Microalgae represent an alternative and innovative source of natural ingredients that can be used in the development of novel food products. Biologically active compounds (e.g. carotenoids) are naturally encapsulated within microalgal cells, being able to resist harsh technological conditions involved in food technology processes. The aim of this work was to study the effect of adding Haematococcus pluvialis and Spirulina maxima microalgal biomass on the linear viscoelastic behaviour of vegetarian food gels prepared from pea protein, j-carrageenan and starch. The gelation process was monitored in situ through dynamic oscillatory measurements, under different thermal profile conditions. Increasing temperature (70–90 C, 5 min) resulted in more structured gels, while the effect of time (5–30 min, at 90 C) was less pronounced. The effect of heating and cooling rates on gel setting was also studied. Haematococcus gels were highly structured and less dependent on gel setting conditions. Spirulina gels presented lower values of viscoelastic functions than the control (gel matrix without microalgae), but this was overcome when using lower heating/cooling rates.
