Nanocapsules as delivery systems in the food, beverage and nutraceutical industries

C. THIES,     Washington University, USA

Abstract:

This chapter is primarily a discussion and analysis of selected nanoparticle and nanocapsule formation processes that the author believes are suitable for the food, beverage and nutraceutical industry. The interrelationship of nanocapsule properties needed for delivery of food ingredients and orally administered pharmaceuticals is noted. It is not a broad literature review, but primarily a discussion and analysis of the key role that polymer adsorption at interfaces plays in formation of ultrathin membranes. Nanocapsule shells are such membranes. Specific cases where polymers or polymerbase complexes adsorbed ...
