Keywords:

  • microencapsulation, nanoencapsulation, edible film, and coating applications in seafood processing;
  • microencapsulation application - in fish oil technology;
  • fish oils, main source of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA);
  • coating materials selection - for fish oil microencapsulation;
  • carbohydrates, as starches, corn syrup solids, and maltodextrins - good coating materials for microencapsulated fish oil powders;
  • oxidative stability of fish oil - improved using microencapsulation processes;
  • nanoencapsulated fish oil, nanotechnology role in food systems - more nutrients and bioactive compounds to human body;
  • edible films and coatings are biodegradable - barriers to moisture, oxygen, flavour, aroma, and oil, food quality and shelf-life;
  • arrowtooth flounder fish protein coated salmon fillets - reduced lipid oxidation activity;
  • microencapsulation and edible coating technologies - improving shelf-life of fish and seafood
