Intralipid suspensions behave like phantoms of human tissues concerning their light scattering properties. We present experimental measurements of the angular distribution of polarized light scattering at various incidence angles on Intralipid-20%. A comparison of the absolute values of these measurements with simulations using a vector radiative transfer model (N-flux) developed for multilayered media demonstrates a stratified structure of the samples with a double distribution of the size of scatterers. This result is confirmed by polarimetry imaging.
