Microencapsulation of Saffron (Crocus sativus L.) Extract in Copolymer Complexes Using Extrusion Method Shakoori, Pooria; Wunwisa Krasaekoopt (2015)
This study describes the preparation of alginate-chitosan and alginate-gelatin beads containing saffron components to be incorporated as additives in food products. This study evaluated the influence of incorporating hydrophilic natural polymers, alginate-chitosan and alginate-gelatin on preserving saffron components. The alginate beads were coated with chitosan and gelatin as copolymer by extrusion method with a polyelectrolyte complex reaction between two oppositely charged poly-ions. The beads were formulated, optimized and evaluated to ...
