This paper describes the correlation between the structure of liquid crystalline phases in emulsions and their rheological characteristics. An oleosome/lipophilic liquid crystalline-forming system and hydrosome/hydrophilic liquid crystalline-forming system were investigated. At the same high shear rate viscosity, the oleosome-system showed less thixotropy and rapid recovery when compared with the hydrosome-system.
