Developing new multifunction layered particles with novel modular food processing systems
This project will develop new multifunction layered particles with novel processing systems to enable multiple bioactive dosages or functions to be delivered in one functional food product. Antioxidant extracts are produced from a variety of bio-waste sources such as Hibiscus flowers (also known as sorrel and roselle), more specifically Hibiscus sabdariffa L.
This project will develop ways to combine the delivery of different extracts as separate layers on particles rather than mixed together, so that the extracts can be absorbed in the body at different stages of digestion. This new process will use sequential drying operations that are more amenable to large-scale operation than the tableting delivery systems used in pharmaceutical processing.
