Liposomal Encapsulation in Food Science and Technology provides all the possible applications of liposomes in food and allied systems, along with recent advances made in these fields. This helps researchers in food science and technology, as well as those in interdisciplinary fields, better explore the opportunities that liposomal encapsulation offers. Among other topics, the book covers formulation and characterization of liposome, liposome mediated encapsulation of antimicrobials and probiotics, liposome-assisted delivery of enzymes and proteins, and liposome for delivery of dietary nutrients and nutraceuticals, etc. This approach facilitates building better dedicated or tandem approaches in respective fields for process/product development. Written by an international team of contributors, the book will aid academicians in developing more industry useful tools/techniques/products.
