Technology Breakthroughs in Food Encapsulation (TechVision)

Technology Breakthroughs in Food Encapsulation (TechVision)

The recent advances in the food industry focus on offering a sustained approach to the development of healthier functional foods. Food encapsulation helps food processors protect sensitive food components, ensure against nutritional loss, utilize otherwise sensitive ingredients, incorporate unusual or time-release mechanisms into their formulations, mask or preserve flavors and aromas, and transform liquids into easily handled solid ingredients. With the demand for healthier food increasing every year, food encapsulation is becoming a strong tool to be explored and developed on a global scale as it can provide the controlled release of functional ingredients at the right place and at the right time. Besides, its ability to be used for a wide range of food ingredients and ensuring shelf life extension will help improve cost-effectiveness for the food product developer.

This research service, “Technology Breakthroughs in Food Encapsulation (TechVision)” focuses on the various food encapsulation techniques and recent research developments and industry initiatives across various encapsulation technologies. It also contains a mapping of the encapsulation technologies to various food products and contains an detailed roadmap of food encapsulation technologies.
