Curcumin is an antiinflammatory molecule, however, due to its lipophilic nature, has the limitation of very low aqueous solubility and degrades rapidly when dispersed in aqueous media. The potential of sunflower seed protein isolate (SFPI), one of the underutilized plant protein, as a drug carrier was studied by synthesizing SFPI nanoparticles (NPs) and encapsulating curcumin in NPs. Increase in solubility of encapsulated curcumin was observed with an encapsulation efficiency of 83%. Stability… Expand
