Hydrophobic bioactives can be more easily incorporated into food and have their bioavailability enhanced if nanostructured lipid carriers (NLC) are used as carriers. In the present study, beta-carotene-loaded NLC were produced by low emulsificationusing murumuru butter and a mixture of Span 80 and Cremophor RH40 as surfactants. Their average diameter was 35 nm andalpha-tocopherol was required to protect the encapsulated β-carotene. Besides the evaluation of their physicochemical stability, NLC were submitted to dynamic in vitrodigestion and cell viability assays with Caco-2 and HEPG cells. The ...
