Microencapsulation in the Food Industry: A Practical Implementation Guide, Second Edition continues to focus on the development of new microencapsulation techniques for researchers and scientists in the field. This practical reference combines the knowledge of new and novel processing techniques, materials and selection, regulatory aspects and testing and evaluation of materials. It provides application specific uses of microencapsulation as it applies to the food and nutraceutical industries. This reference offers unique solutions to some very specific product needs in the field of encapsulation. This second edition highlights changes in the industry as a result of a field that has traversed from the micro scale level to nano-scaled encapsulation and includes two new chapters, one on regulatory, quality, process scale-up, packaging, and economics and the other on testing and quality control.

Key Features

  • Includes new characterization methodologies to understand chemical and physical properties for functionality of the final microencapsulated material
