• Emulsions in the α-gel phase have smooth droplet surfaces.
• Emulsions in the coagel phase have porous droplet surfaces.
• The porous surface leads to water syneresis upon polymorphic transformation.
This work characterized changes in surface morphology of a glyceryl monostearate structured emulsion (MG-structured emulsion) during the polymorphic transformation from the α-gel phase to the coagel phase. The effects of using various concentrations of co-emulsifier and adding xanthan gum on emulsion structure and stability were also investigated. Microscopy methods, including light microscopy, cryogenic-scanning electron microscopy, and X-ray diffraction were employed in the examination of the emulsion microstructure. Results showed that the MG-structured emulsion has a smooth droplet surface in the α-gel phase and a porous surface in the coagel phase. The formation of a porous surface during the polymorphic transformation leads to water release upon emulsion destabilization. Formulating with higher content of co-emulsifier or adding xanthan gum enhanced the multi-lamellar structure and stability of this structured emulsion.
