Development of Encapsulation Systems from Zein and Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) for Improved Functional Properties of Essential Oils
Essential oils (EOs), which are derived from plants, have antifungal, insecticidal and antimicrobial activities, but they are slightly soluble in water and impart to the water their odor and taste, which limit their ...
POTENTIAL LOW TOXICITY CROSSLINKER FOR PROTEIN-BASED NANOPARTICLES
Crosslinking is an essential procedure for maintaining the integrity of protein-based nanoparticles, but the application of toxic crosslinkers is usually undesirable. In this study, a tyrosinase-aided crosslinking procedure ...
COMBINED EFFECTS OF SUNLIGHT AND TITANIUM DIOXIDE NANOPARTICLES ON DIETARY ANTIOXIDANTS AND FOOD COLORS
The breakthroughs in material science have enabled industrialized fabrication and production of nanomaterials. To date, nanoscale materials have been shown to exhibit improved functionalities, providing numerous novel ...
FOOD PROTEIN-BASED NANOPARTICLES AS BIOAVAILABILITY ENHANCING ENCAPSULANTS
Proteins are attractive bioavailability enhancers for poorly absorbed nutraceuticals or drugs, owing to their natural abundance, amphiphilic nature, and desirable biocompatibility. This study systematically investigated ...
DEVELOPMENT OF ΒETA-LACTOGLOBULIN BASED PARTICLES AS COLLOIDAL STABILIZERS AND EVALUATION OF THEIR PERFORMANCE ON INTERFACES
Beta-lactoglobulin (Blg) is a major whey protein in bovine milk. The desirable functional properties of Blg make it a versatile material, which has been processed into various types of colloidal systems such as nanoparticles, ...
