Towards the understanding of the behavior of bio-based nanostructures during in vitro digestion

  • Current Opinion in Food Science, 15, 79-86, 2017

Publisher: Elsevier


The encapsulation of bioactive compounds in bio-based nanostructures is considered a hot topic in food technology, due to their huge potential in protecting the valuable bioactive compounds and providing new functionalities (e.g. increase of bioavailability). However, there are still some challenges that must be overcome before this technology can be entirely embraced by food industry, including the optimisation of nanostructures’ formulations to increase stability and bioactive compounds’ bioavailability and the risk assessment of their use in food. Therefore, in recent years, efforts are bei ...
