Creative Biostructure has committed to the research and development of liposome technology in the past decade, and has established a comprehensive liposome platform specialized in food-related applications.
Why use liposomes in food industry?
Liposomes have great potentials in the food, beverage, and nutraceutical industries as shown in published precedent. In food industry, the application of liposomes mainly focuses on texture alteration and water retention improvement. Liposomes can encapsulate various components such as additives, preservatives and antimicrobials, resulting in enriched flavors and increased bioavailability of the contents. Liposomes are particularly suitable for the food industry as they provide natural, non-toxic, biodegradable, and versatile systems for both hydrophilic and hydrophilic components. Works demonstrating the benefits of using liposomes have been widely reported, such as the targeted delivery of functional ingredients, the synergistic delivery of multiple agents, and the physical protection to prevent chemical or enzymatic degradation.
