Omega-3 Delivery Systems: Production, Physical Characterization and Oxidative Stability offers the most recent updates for developing, characterizing, and stabilizing both traditional and novel omega-3 delivery systems, including their final incorporation into food matrices and physicochemical changes during digestion. The book brings chapters on novel omega-3 delivery systems (e.g., high-fat emulsions, Pickering emulsions, electrosprayed capsules, and solid lipid nanoparticles), the application of advanced techniques to evaluate physical and oxidative stabilities (e.g., SAXS, SANS, ESR, and super-resolution fluorescence microscopy), and new developments of food enrichment and physicochemical changes during digestion. The book provides a unique multidisciplinary and multisectoral approach, i.e., featuring authors from industry and academy.
Long chain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) present numerous health benefits; however, the consumption of natural products rich in omega-3 PUFA (e.g., fish, krill, and algae) is not enough to reach the daily-recommended values. Therefore, the food industry is highly interested in producing omega-3 fortified foods.
- Brings a holistic approach of omega-3 delivery systems, bringing scientific understanding on production, physical characterization, and oxidative stability
- Covers key aspects to develop, characterize, and use omega-3 delivery systems for food enrichment, considering physicochemical changes occurring during digestion
- Serves as an interface between lipid oxidation and colloids chemistry, encapsulation techniques, soft matter physics, food development, and nutrients bioavailability
Food scientists, soft matter physics, food engineers, industry professionals, academics personnel (lecturers and post-/under-graduate researchers)

Charlotte Jacobsen, Ph.D., is professor with special responsibilities in lipids and oxidation in foods. She leads the research group for Bioactives—Analysis and Application at the National Food Institute, Technical University of Denmark. She obtained her M.Sc. in 1990 and her Ph.d. in 1999, both from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). During the last 20 years she has carried out research in the area of oxidative stability of foods enriched with functional lipids including omega-3 enriched foods. She is internationally renowned for her research in this area and she has received several awards for her work including the Danish Danisco price 2003 (40.000 $), the French La Médaille Chevreul 2010 awarded by Association Francaise pour l’étude des Corps Gras as well as two best paper awards from the American Oil Chemist’s society. She was appointed by EFSA as an expert in the Fish Oil working group under the Biohazard Panel to evaluate the potential hazard associated with human intake of refined fish oil. Her publication list includes more than 130 peer-reviewed manuscripts and book chapters. Her research group collaborates with several large national and international companies such as Arla Foods (DK), Pronova (Norway), EPAX (Norway), Dupont (DK/US) and Glaxo Smith Kline (US/UK).
