Book Description :

Today, nano- and microencapsulation are increasingly beingutilized in the pharmaceutical, textile, agricultural and foodindustries. Microencapsulation is a process in which tiny particlesor droplets of a food are surrounded by a coating to give smallcapsules. These capsules can be imagined as tiny uniform spheres,in which the particles at the core are protected from outsideelements by the protective coating. For example, vitamins can beencapsulated to protect them from the deterioration they wouldundergo if they were exposed to oxygen. This book highlights the principles, applications, toxicity andregulation of nano- and microencapsulated foods. Section I describes the theories and concepts of nano- andmicroencapsulation for foods adapted from pharmaceutical areas,rationales and new strategies of encapsulation, and protection andcontrolled release of food ingredients. Section II looks closely at the nano- and microencapsulation offood ingredients, such as vitamins, minerals, phytochemical, lipid,probiotics and flavors. This section provides a variety ofreferences for functional food ingredients with varioustechnologies of nano particles and microencapsulation. This sectionwill be helpful to food processors and will deal with foodingredients for making newly developed functional foodproducts. Section III covers the application of encapsulated ingredientsto various foods, such as milk and dairy products, beverages,bakery and confectionery products, and related food packagingmaterials. Section IV touches on other related issues in nano- andmicroencapsulation, such as bioavailability, bioactivity, potentialtoxicity and regulation.

Book Description :

With the recent shift of chemical fertilizers and pesticides to organic agriculture, the employment of microbes that perform significant beneficial functions for plants has been highlighted. This book presents timely discussion and coverage on the use of microbial formulations, which range from powdered or charcoal-based to solution and secondary metabolite-based bioformulations. Bioformulation development of biofertilizers and biopesticides coupled with the advantages of nanobiotechnology propose significant applications in the agricultural section including nanobiosensors, nanoherbicides, and smart transport systems for the regulated release of agrochemical. Moreover, the formulation of secondary metabolites against individual phytopathogens could be used irrespective of geographical positions with higher disease incidences. The prospective advantages and uses of nanobiotechnology generate tremendous interest, as it could augment production of agricultural produce while being cost-effective both energetically and economically. This bioformulation approach is incomparable to existing technology, as the bioformulation would explicitly target the particular pathogen without harming the natural microbiome of the ecosystem. Nanobiotechnology in Bioformulations covers the constraints associated with large-scale development and commercialization of bioinoculant formations. Furthermore, exclusive emphasis is be placed on next-generation efficient bioinoculants having secondary metabolite formulations with longer shelf life and advanced competence against several phytopathogens. Valuable chapters deal with bioformulation strategies that use divergent groups of the microbiome and include detailed diagrammatic and pictorial representation. This book will be highly beneficial for both experts and novices in the fields of microbial bioformulation, nanotechnology, and nano-microbiotechnology. It discusses the prevailing status and applications available for microbial researchers and scientists, agronomists, students, environmentalists, agriculturists, and agribusiness professionals, as well as to anyone devoted to sustaining the ecosystem.
