Encapsulation is being used to improve stability and bioavailability of several bioactive compounds due to the interest in developing more efficient and selective methods for their protection and preservation. The incorporation of bioactive into food products provides many advantages in food preservation and contributes to the development of functional foods promoted by the application of emerging technologies. Thus, in the food industry, encapsulation not only allows adding value to a product food and generating a source of new additives with specific properties, but it is also characterized, in addition to scalability, by the ease of operation, cost effectiveness, and broad regulatory acceptance. The study of Ca(II)-alginate hydrogels has generated many research due to their renewability, biodegradability, biocompatibility, and nontoxicity characteristics. In particular, this talk will be focus on recent published results related to hydrogel structure by SAXS (performed at synchrotron facilities), combination of other biopolymers and sugar, stability of the encapsulated compounds, release and activity under operational conditions.
