Abstract:

A review illustrates the potential of food protein-based matrixes to serve as carriers for the controlled release of functional food components. It focuses on recent progress in the design, prepn. and evaluation of food-protein-based delivery systems based on hydrogel or micro- and nanoparticles and their potential for the development of innovative functional foods.
