These findings imply that a surface hydrophobicity value of 1000 is sufficient to ensure adsorption of the protein at the air-water interface; but once adsorbed, the ability of the protein to unfold and expose all hydrophobic residues to the interface is critical for creating more interfacial area as the foam is being formed. In other words, the ability of the protein to instantaneously reduce the surface tension upon adsorption is critical for its foamability. This is possible only when the protein undergoes rapid conformational change and reorientation at the interface.
