Protection of bioactive oils using encapsulation solutions
Bioactive oils are commonly used in food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic applications. Those oils are usually rich in unsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids.
The majority of fatty acids can be produced by the human body, however omega-3 and omega-6, essential in human nutrition, cannot be synthetized and must be provided by food.
In this study, two oils representing high linoleic (hemp) and high linolenic (flax) acid contents were respectively chosen for this study as they represent premium oil grown locally, together with a novel high linoleic acid containing oil extracted from chia seeds.
The objective of this work was to use two encapsulation methods to protect oil from deterioration.
