Aerated foods have accompanied human development since the invention of raised bread in Egypt 6000 years ago. Aerated foods now feature within confectionery, dairy products, egg foams, baked products, breakfast cereals and beverages, having arisen through historical combinations of ingredient availability, technological advances and culinary experimentation. The interdependence between food and science/technology is greater, it is argued, for aerated foods than for their unaerated counterparts. The technology of food aeration has also provided the foundation for modern foam science and its diverse application.
