Twin-screw extrusion encapsulation of MCT-oil in a maltodextrin matrix using compatibilizing biopolymers

Abstract : Carbohydrates are the most recurrent materials employed for active components encapsulation using twin-screw extrusion. However, the influence of process parameters on the properties of the final product remains a challenge. In this paper, special attention was given to the incorporation of a hydrophobic model compound (MCT-oil), in a maltodextrin matrix with a compatibilizing biopolymer. The effects of the extrusion parameters, as well as the influence of different formulations were analyzed. The mild extrusion conditions allowed obtaining blends with acceptable texture and viscosity to enhance the dispersion of the active compound. The encapsulation systems obtained were in a glassy state at room temperature and they remained stable at 60 % RH for a long time. Satisfactory incorporation rates of MCT-oil were found reaching encapsulation efficiencies up to 90 %. These results showed that the chosen compatibilizing agent enhanced the dispersion and stabilization of the MCT-oil within the matrix and significantly improved encapsulation.
