Novel Hydrocolloid-based Nutraceutical Carriers

Nutraceuticals are important due to their inherent health benefits, but their utilization and consumption are limited by their poor water solubility and instability under normal processing and storage conditions. Here we are developing a novel way of nutraceuticals delivery using food-based hydrocolloid matrices. Prepared complexes possess stable organization and will have the ability to thermally protect the encapsulated molecules and increase the bioavailability.
