In this study, we prepared a series of lutein nanodispersions via the solvent displacement method, by using surfactants with different stabilizing mechanisms. The surfactants used include Tween 80 (steric stabilization), sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS; electrostatic stabilization), sodium caseinate (electrosteric stabilization) and SDS-Tween 80 (electrostatic-steric stabilization). We then characterized the resulting lutein nanodispersions in terms of their particle size, particle size… 
Correlation of Emulsion Structure with Cellular Uptake Behavior of Encapsulated Bioactive Nutrients: Influence of Droplet Size and Interfacial Structure.
TLDR
It is suggested that delivery in an emulsion significantly improved the cellular uptake of β-carotene and thus potentially its bioavailability; uptake was closely correlated with the interfacial composition and droplet size of emulsions.
The influence of flaxseed gum on the microrheological properties and physicochemical stability of whey protein stabilized β-carotene emulsions.
The impact of flaxseed gum (FG) on the microrheological properties and physicochemical stability of whey protein isolate (WPI) stabilized β-carotene emulsions at pH 3.0 was studied. A layer-by-layer
Dexamethasone-Loaded Lipomers: Development, Characterization, and Skin Biodistribution Studies
TLDR
The anti-inflammatory (via TNFα) efficacy of the dexamethasone-loaded lipomers was demonstrated in vitro in an HEK001 human keratinocytes cell culture and the in vitro cytotoxicity of the nanoformulation was investigated.
Fabrication of Oil-in-Water Emulsions as Shelf-Stable Liquid Non-Dairy Creamer: Effects of Homogenization Pressure, Oil Type and Emulsifier Concentration.
TLDR
Shelf-stable LNDCs with qualities comparable to commercial LNDC were successfully fabricated, and when added into black coffee, showed good whitening effect.
Nano-additives for Food Industries
TLDR
The nanostructured nutraceuticals and bioactive compounds incorporated into nano-sized delivery systems are usually known as nanoadditives, and are designed to be added in various food and beverage systems or their packaging polymers matrix, to promote their characteristics and give them various activities.
