The study of the solidification and melting of fats by thermal methods can be fascinating. It seems there is always one more factor that should have been considered after the experiment is finished. If you added an antioxidant to the fat to preserve it, did you determine the effect the added compound had on the crystallization of the fat? How do you know that the solid phase on which you just finished composition studies was completely free from adhering or entrapped liquid phase?
