As of late, greater efforts are being made in the use of nanoemulsion techniques to encapsulate, protect, and deliver functional compounds for food applications, given their advantages over conventional emulsification techniques. In addition, delivery systems of nano-scale dimensions use low-energy emulsification methods and exclude the need of any solvent, heat, or sophisticated instruments in their production.
Divided into three sections, Nanoemulsions in Food Technology: Development, Characterization, and Applications will provide in-depth information and comprehensive discussion over technologies, physical and nanostructural characterization, as well as applicability of the nanoemulsion technique in food sciences. It describes the techniques involved in nanoemulsion characterization, mainly dealing with interfacial and nanostructural characterization of nanoemulsions, different physical characterization techniques, as well as various imaging and separation techniques involved in its characterization.
- Provides a detailed discussion about the technology of nanoemulsion
- Explains how nanoemulsion technique is helpful in using essential oils of different biological sources
- Presents methods of preparation and recent advancements in manufacturing along with stability perspectives of this technique.
- Discusses recent advancements in manufacturing and reviews the stability perspectives of nanoemulsion techniques
This book contains in-depth information on a technology overview, physical and nanostructural characterization, as well as applicability of the nanoemulsion technique in food sciences. It is a concise body of information that is beneficial to researchers, industries, and students alike. The contributing authors are drawn from a rich blend of experts in various areas of scientific field exploring nanoemulsion techniques for wider applications.
