This study investigated the effects of incorporating stearic acid (SAC) in candelilla wax (CW) and groundnut oil (GO) oleogel with potential health benefits as an alternative to saturated fats in processed foods. Results showed that SAC possesses crystal habit-modifying properties on the oleogels, causing its average crystallite size to increase, as observed through polarized light microscopy and XRD analysis. Additionally, SAC caused an increase in ordering within the crystallite network as a result of the decrease in d-spacing. Interestingly, the firmness of the oleogels remained unaffected, even at a higher fraction of SAC. It is believed to be due to the interference caused by the crystallization of high-melting SAC within the fine crystal network of CW-GO oleogel. However, adding 3 mg of SAC significantly increased the work of the shear of the oleogel (SAC3), which decreased the spreadability. As observed through colorimetric analysis, SAC3 showed a dense and uniform distribution of prominent bright crystals with minimal amorphous regions, leading to a high whiteness index. SAC3 also demonstrated the highest compactness and dislocation density among the oleogels, likely due to the formation of prominent crystals. However, SAC did not affect the overall oleogel crystallization rate. SAC3 had delayed secondary crystallization and thermal equilibrium by having a prolonged crystallization time of CW crystals. In the case of controlled delivery studies, the addition of SAC improved CPCR. On the other hand, CPCR decreased with the increase in SAC amount, where SAC3 showed a moderate curcumin release ability among the oleogels.
