Abstract

We report a scalable fabrication of novel, food-grade anisotropic micro-rods from shellac and ethyl cellulose with controllable morphology which was studied using scanning electron microscopy and optical microscopy. The aqueous suspensions of these anisotropic materials show great potential for preparation of super-stable food-grade foams.
