This experiment investigated the effects of different temperature and time bath heat treatments on the functional properties of spirulina protein. The solubility, emulsifying properties, oil absorption properties, foaming properties, turbidity and the like of the protein are measured. The results show that the heat treatment reduces the solubility of spirulina protein. The optimum conditions for emulsification, oil absorption and foaming are 55 °C, 0.5 hours.The optimum conditions for turbidity are 75 °C for 1.5 hours. The results of this experiment can provide a theoretical reference for food and beverage and health care products processing industry using spirulina as raw material.
