  • Encapsulation of krill oil (KO), a rich source of eicosapentanoic (EPA) and docosahexanoic acid (DHA) was carried out in chitosan-TPP (tripolyphosphate) nanoparticles using a newly developed two-step process (i.e, formation of emulsion and later electrostatic interaction of chitosan with TPP). The encapsulation of KO in chitosan nanoparticles (CSNPs) was confirmed by using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Thermo gravimetric analysis (TGA) techniques… CONTINUE READING
