Utilization of emulsion interface engineering to produce oxidatively stable lipid delivery systems

Primary Inventors: 
Description: 

This system makes oil-in-water emulsions containing 25-40% lipids. This system utilizes antioxidant technologies in the lipid, lipid-water interface and water phases. The emulsion contains very little non-lipid materials and is easy to incorporate into foods while maintaining antioxidant protection systems.

Applications: 

Development of oxidatively stable food delivery systems for omega-3 fatty acids, carotenoids and flavors.

Advantages: 
  • Provides multiphase antioxidant protection
  • Has greater oxidative stability than bulk lipids
  • Has low amounts of non-lipid materials
  • Is easy to incorporate into water based foods
  • Maintains much of its antioxidant protection once incorporated into foods
