The word homogenize refers to the ability to make a mixture homogeneous, the latter referring to uniformity. This is usually related to the use of chemicals, which are mixed through physical means, until it results in a uniform solution. Homogenization is a technique that is used in many fields, from biology, agriculture and chemistry, to gastronomy, to name a few disciplines, however, are many more.
The term homogenization, used in many fields of science, refers to the process through which a mixture is achieved to have the same properties, i.e., to be uniform and not divided by phases, unlike heterogeneous mixtures. The advantage of homogenizing substances is that it is easier to study the components of the mixture and, in the case of the food industry, provides an increase in quality to the final product.
