The present study examines formulations prepared using similar oil fractions and differing emulsifier systems and process parameters to determine why their behaviors differ. Results showed that ethoxylated emulsifier systems were the most stable, and that beyond a certain number of cycles, high pressure homogenization did not significantly improve the quality of the product.
