    In this research, the potential of the electrospraying technique was used for encapsulation of curcumin in natural polymers such as Whey Protein Isolate (WPI) and mixture of WPI/β-CycloDextrin (β-CD). The encapsulated particles were physicochemically characterized and curcumin release profile was evaluated. At WPI concentration of 25%, more uniform particles were formed and most of them were smaller than 0.7 ?m in diameter. The encapsulation efficiency of curcumin in WPI and WPI/β-CD solutions was determined as 45.4% and 53.6%, respectively. Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) and ThermoGravimetric Analysis (TGA) of the obtained encapsulated curcumin revealed that WPI and WPI/β-CD polymers could not increase thermal stability of cur

    Pasta is one of the most popular foods consumed in the world because of its low price, easy cooking and good taste. It is rich in calories (complex carbohydrates), but it is poor in dietary fibers, minerals, phenolic compounds and vitamins. Due to the limited number of raw materials in pasta production, its popularity among all segments of society as well as the simple production process, it can be used as a suitable carrier for enrichment. In this study, the effect of pasta enrichment using fruits and vegetables on physicochemical and nutritional properties of the pasta was investigated. The results of this study showed that the addition of vegetables and fruits to formulation of past considerably increased content of bioactive compounds s
