Microencapsulation allows bioactive compounds protection from external factors. Innovation in food industry often requires adding functional ingredients, to tailor flavour and texture, to improve preservation, to control bioactive compounds stability and controlled release during processing/storage. Oregano, besides richness in aroma compounds, is also known by potential antioxidant and antimicrobial activities. These sensitive compounds need protection in order to allow their use in a wider range of processes. In this study, oregano essential oil (EO) was microencapsulated by spray/freeze dr ...
