Description

Encapsulations, a volume in the Nanotechnology in the Agri-Food Industry series,presents key elements in establishing food quality through the improvement of food flavor and aroma. The major benefits of nanoencapsulation for food ingredients include improvement in bioavailability of flavor and aroma ingredients, improvement in solubility of poor water-soluble ingredients, higher ingredient retention during production process, higher activity levels of encapsulated ingredients, improved shelf life, and controlled release of flavor and aroma. This volume discusses main nanoencapsulation processes such as spray drying, melt injection, extrusion, coacervation, and emulsification. The materials used in nanoencapsulation include lipids, proteins, carbohydrates, cellulose, gums, and food grade polymers. Applications and benefits of nanoencapsulation such as controlled release, protections, and taste masking will be explained in detail.

About Alexandru Grumezescu

Dr. Alexandru Mihai Grumezescu is Assistant Professor at the Department of Science and Engineering of Oxide Materials and Nanomaterials, in the Faculty of Applied Chemistry and Materials Science, with a second affiliation to the Faculty of Medical Engineering, at the Politehnica University of Bucharest in Romania. He is an experienced and oft-published researcher and editor in the field of nano and biostructures, and he is the Editor-in-Chief of three journals: Biointerface Research in Applied Chemistry, Letters and Applied NanoBioScience, Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering Bulletin, and Journal of Food Bioengineering and Nanoprocessing. He also serves as editor or guest editor for several notable journals. Dr. Grumezescu has published 150 peer-reviewed papers, 20 book chapters, 8 co-authored books and 21 edited books. He has developed two new research directions related to bio-applications of metal oxide nanoparticles: (i) functional metal oxide nanostructures to improve the delivery of antimicrobials in active form with a high efficiency against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria; and (ii) smart metal oxide nanostructures, functionalized with different fatty acids, essential oils or in combination with organic polymers, to inhibit bacterial colonization of different medical or industrial surfaces. Dr Alexandru Mihai Grumezescu is also Assistant Professor at the Department of Science and Engineering of Oxide Materials and Nanomaterials, in the Faculty of Applied Chemistry and Materials Science at the Politehnica University of Bucharest in Romania. He is an experienced and oft-published researcher and editor in the field of nano- and biostructures, and he is the Editor-in-Chief of four journals: Biointerface Research in Applied Chemistry, Letters and Applied NanoBioScience, Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering Bulletin, and Journal of Food Bioengineering and Nanoprocessing. He also serves as editor or guest editor for several notable journals. Dr Grumezescu has published 160 peer-reviewed papers, 20 book chapters, 9 coauthored books, and 21 edited books.
