Abstract

The multiple emulsion/cold dehydration method was developed for the flavor encapsulation. The effects of various process parameters on the emulsion stability and flavor retention were investigated. Microfluidizer (at 68 MPa) produced more stable emulsion with small uniform droplets than pressure-homogenizer. Increasing the gum arabic content created a highly viscious emulsion, which resulted in a stable O/W emulsion. The stability of an O/W/O multiple emulsion was highly affected by the type of emulsifiers and the most stable emulsion was prepared using the blend of Span 80 and PGPR. Well-formed microcapsules having high flavor retention (71%) was obtained when ethanol/water mixtures solution of 9:1 was used as a dehydrating agent.
