Microalgal oil was encapsulated in gelatin-gum Arabic complex coacervated matrices using transglutaminase (TG) as cross-linking agent. The effects of various cross-linking parameters including hardening time, temperature, pH and TG concentration on the oil release rate of the complex coacervation microcapsules (CCMs) were investigated, with sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) as release medium. The optimum parameters were as follows: hardening for 6h at 15°C and pH 6.0 with TG concentration of 15 U/g… CONTINUE READING
