Abstract:

Micro encapsulation is one of the promising technologies for the preservation of highly sensible components in several fields like medicine, drug and food processing industries. The technique of microencapsulation helps in preservation and storage of the products which also increases the shelf life; this made the technique more famous in various industries like food processing, pharmaceuticals, textiles, Biotechnology etc. Microencapsulation is the most useful preservative technique for spice industry as the technique helps in the keeping the quality of spices. The technique involves with two components, one is the wall material, which encapsulates the sensible components and the other is core material, a highly sensible component which is to be encapsulated by wall material. There were several methods for undergoing the process of microencapsulation like spray drying, fluidised bed coating (top spray, bottom spray and tangential spray) spinning disk, Pan coating etc. All these methods and the research works undergo with these methods were discussed briefly in this review.


Keywords: Micro encapsulation, Wall material, Core material
