Abstract

The efficacy of nutraceuticals or therapeutics is primarily a function of their conserved biological activity and availability. As changing the size of fabricated materials into nanoscale, the stability and the solubility of valuable nutrients can tremendously be improved; and their effective and controlled delivery via nano-vehicles can be provided. In this review, we addressed the latest approaches for nano-encapsulation and entrapment of hydrophobic bioactive molecules and other nano-vehicles that proved their success in drug delivery applications and summarized their applications in the food industry.
